Do you have a bunch of old photos sitting around in shoeboxes or other equally random locations?
If so then take a look at the Shoebox app from 1000 Memories. It scans your photos - whether old sepia and black and whites or more modern colour photos.
Thanks to the high resolution cameras becoming common in current smartphones you don't need a traditional scanner to scan your photos.
At up to 8 megapixels many smartphone cameras will capture more detail than can be displayed on any high definition television or computer screen, without zooming.
Shoebox does a slick job of scanning photos and helping sort them.
To use the app you'll need a free 1000 memories login which the app helps you set up the first time you use it. Alternatively it will work with a Facebook account too.
Shoebox is currently available for iPhone and Android smartphone platforms.
