Title: Great App for Collectors!!
Post by: Hellboy on May 10, 2016, 12:49:57 AM
Hey guys! I've been using the smartphone app Boxes to archive my collection and it is developing into quite the resource community for not only Star Wars stuff but other collectibles in general. I've been upgraded to a Boxes Leader so anyone using my personal invite code 9EPJ7 should get a free premium membership.
They run contests to get people to upload all their stuff and there are some pretty nice cash prizes for the enthusiastic members.

You can find me as Hellboy https://box.es/hellboy (https://box.es/hellboy)

They are also keen on helping local collectors have get togethers.

Thanks for letting us all know that this exists. I signed up but have to wait for the Android version of the app. I'm going to try to use the website version in the meantime!

The website version is really only good for admin and browsing right now. They are working on making it more functional like the app but I think that's a secondary focus. I'd prefer to be able to upload from my computer too.

If anyone else signs up let me know! Send me a message on Boxes to say hi!

Any idea when the android version will be available? I'd be interested if it becomes available.

They said making an Android version means programming from scratch so while they know the importance of the Android market they are currently trying to get "noticed" through the Apple app first. I believe their "buy and sell" feature uses Apple Pay but I've not tried to sell or buy anything as of yet.
