The Shooglebox app for Apple and Android devices makes it really quick and easy to pop things into Shooglebox whenever and wherever you come across them.

Because you often stumble across interesting things when you’re out and about, the Shooglebox app makes it easy to share web links, photos, videos, notes and audio files from your mobile phone.
It's a great way to quickly save things you don't have time to read or watch when you first spot them in your social newsfeeds or Google search results – then come back to them later on your desktop or laptop to review and explore everything you've added.
Turn on Sharing to make the most of the app
If you’re using an Android device Shooglebox will automatically appear as a destination, but if you're using an iPhone you’ll need to add Shooglebox to the list of favourite destinations you can share content to.
It's easy and doesn't take long to do....
In an app like Photos or Safari, tap the share button – usually a box with an upward arrow – and scroll along the list of options until you see the More option.
Tap More and then click Edit on the top menu bar.
Scroll down to Shooglebox and press the green + button next to Shooglebox. You can also drag Shooglebox further up the list of favourites so it appears sooner in the list when sharing.
Click Done. The next time you share an item from another app, Shooglebox will now appear in the list of options.
In most apps – such as Facebook and Twitter – you'll see the Share icon next to the item you want to save. Tap on it and select Shooglebox from the list of options. In some – like Instagram – you tap a three-dot menu button to access the Share feature.
Mobile app integrations
Shooglebox works well with most major mobile apps. So if you have a photo or video on your iPhone, iPad or Android device you can move it into Shooglebox by tapping the share button. Or if you spot a useful news story, blog or weblink, you can save it to Shooglebox by following the share button on the app you're using, or your mobile browser.
Most services with a share option work with Shooglebox. Here’s a list of some of the most popular apps you can share from:

Where your cards appear and how to move them
All the files you share from your smartphone will be saved to your Shooglebox Inbox. An image and/or some summary text will appear on the front of the card – and on the back of the card you’ll find embeds with links to the full content you shared.
You can edit the front and back of the cards in your Inbox – or move them to one of your other boxes. We recommend using Shooglebox on a large-screen device such as a laptop or desktop PC to move, edit and explore your cards.
