Scan Your Boxes allows you to view the contents of your cartons, storage boxes, folders, etc. in a simple scan of QR Code.
You will no longer need to take out your boxes, open them, search them, to realize that the treasure you are looking for is not there and put everything away.
The scan of a simple QR Code will allow you to do your research without getting your hands dirty.

With Scan Your Boxes, 3 steps are enough:

1. take a picture of the items in your boxes
2. the app provides you a QR Code which you can print and paste it on your carton
3. scan the QR Code to view the contents of the application

Here are the last new features
- possibility of associating a storage box with a category of objects
- possibility of specifying the storage location of a storage box
- proposal of a default name to a new storage box
- search for storage boxes according to their name and content
- more legible labels to stick on your storage boxes
- backup and recovery of your data on iCloud
- possibility to use a personal QR Code if your boxes already have one
- printing of several QR Code at the same time from the list of boxes

Good App needs better search capabilities

I really like the app. The only problem I’m having is searching for individual items. When I search for individual items it only shows the box where that item is but it does not display the items that match the search term so I have to look for every single item in the box in order to find what I’m looking for. It would be really helpful to search for an item and get a list of matching items, once I select the one I want, then it can tell me where to find it.

Love this app!

I have a big move coming up. This app is allowing me to inventory everything before I put it away in boxes and it has been a huge help. I love that if I want to find something, I just search any word and all items with the name pop up immediately with its image and location. There are still some other features I’d like, like a better sharing service between multiple devices/users so someone else that I allow can scan my box and see what’s in it, but the developer is working on it. The developer has been super responsive on GitHub and I have been incredibly impressed. I also appreciate how the data is kept on your device, so your stuff isn’t public. I think that’s what makes that sharing feature difficult to add on. Looking forward to seeing where this app goes.

How do I reach out to get support?

Just installed and think it's pretty good. I'd like to know how to print out the QR labels though and also if there is a way to put something in a box multiple times without having to add the pictures. Like say I have 12 of the same picture frames, how can I just make one picture/item and write that there are 12 in the box?

Developer Response ,

Hi Kylabarton,
You can print the QR Code of a box in two ways.
First option by using the "print" button at the top right of the list of your boxes and then selecting the boxes you want to print.
Second option by using the "QR Code" button available in your box at the top right of the screen. It will display the box's QR Code and you will be able to share it to have the print option.
In both cases, the application creates a pdf file that you can print from your iPhone / iPad or from your computer.
Thank you for using Scan Your Boxes and feel free to ask if you have any questions or the need of a new feature.
