New & Improved Shoeboxed Mobile Functionality and The Shoeboxed Jar of Knowledge

Attention Shoeboxed users: Shoeboxed is overjoyed to announce that we are now accepting multi-page PDF submissions through either of your Shoeboxed Mobile e-mail addresses! Last week our talented team of developers rolled out a new series of improvements, chief among them a new functionality that allows you to send or forward any multi-page PDF receipt, invoice or bill directly to either of your Shoeboxed Mobile e-mail addresses for immediate processing.

In the office? On the go? Scanning in physical receipts from your home scanner? We’re not picky! Simply attach any multi-page PDF to an e-mail and send it to either of your Shoeboxed Mobile e-mail addresses anytime, anywhere. Then we’ll scan, OCR, and data verify the entire document. It’s really that easy!

Never used your Shoeboxed Mobile e-mail before? Can’t find the addresses? No problem! You can locate your Shoeboxed Mobile e-mail addresses by logging in to your Sheoboxed Account and then clicking on the section labeled “Shoeboxed Mobile,” located on the left side navigation of your screen:

Have any questions about this new functionality? Shoot us an e-mail at help@team.shoeboxed.com and we’ll be happy to explain in greater detail!

In other news, The Shoeboxed team has been consuming large quantities of Snapple recently (a recent office poll confirmed that Snapple really is made from the best stuff on earth) and we’ve been doing our best to share the fun, real fact under each lid with all of you via Twitter.

Here’s how it works: First we all drink a ton of Snapple, then we meticulously collect each Snapple lid in The Shoeboxed Jar of Knowledge, and finally we tweet at least one of these facts every day for your pleasure and enjoyment. For those of you who follow @Shoeboxed on Twitter, you’re now full of all sorts of fun random knowledge thanks to Shoeboxers’ endless thirst for Snapple. For those of you who don’t follow us on Twitter, we encourage you to change that ASAP!

Our goal is to collect and tweet all 1,000 facts. Think we can do it? Either way, it looks like we’re going to need a new jar of knowledge soon, as this one is about to overflow!

We’ll keep you in the loop as more upgrades and fun new features are released! Check our blog frequently for news of the latest and greatest Shoeboxed news.

If you have any feedback or questions, please reach us 24/7 at help@team.shoeboxed.com or give us a shout on Twitter @Shoeboxed.

Stay Organized,

The Shoeboxed Team

Free Shoeboxed Business Card iPhone App Now Available

It’s finally here! The Shoeboxed Business Card Reader and Business Card Scanner iPhone App just hit the App Store! Even more exciting is that the app is forever-free and completely unlimited! No fine print, no strings attached, just plain ol’ free to download and free to use. Keeping track of your business cards and managing your contacts on the go with Shoeboxed has never been easier, faster or free-er. Download the Shoeboxed Business Card Reader and Business Card Scanner for iPhone today and never lose a business card again!

The new Shoeboxed app is the first free and unlimited business card iPhone app to use both Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and human-verification on every card, delivering a level of accuracy unmatched by most existing free and paid business card apps. Using the app is simple. Just snap a picture of a new contact’s business card with your iPhone and Shoeboxed will take care of the rest. Contact details are extracted from the business card with OCR technology then scrutinized for accuracy by Shoeboxed operators. Your digitized contact is securely backed up online and returned to your iPhone in less than a day, but usually within just a few hours. If you choose to add your new contacts directly to your iPhone, the app searches existing contacts in your address book to avoid creating duplicate entries.

After you submit a new business card with the app, the Auto-Share feature emails your basic contact details to your new contact, making it easier for both of you to update your address books and stay in touch. In your account you can customize the Auto-Share email or disable this feature with a paid account.

All business cards submitted via the iPhone app are backed up and organized in your online Shoeboxed account. Log in to your account at www.shoeboxed.com to download a CSV file or export your contacts to BatchBook, Google Contacts, Outlook, Address Book, Evernote, Salesforce, Constant Contact and other popular platforms.
