When does Shoebox backup my photos?

  • Android: Your photos are backed up as you take them (can be limited to Wi-Fi)
  • Mac/PC: Your photos are backed up every hour and also when you launch the app.
  • iPhone/iPad: Your photos are backed up when you launch the app (can be limited to Wi-Fi). They are also occassionaly backed up in the background, but the exact schedule is controlled by Apple.

For details on background upload on iOS, see the question: 'How do I ensure my iPhone/iPad continues to backup new photos in the background?'
