●●●●● "This is a superlative extraordinary app, demonstrating design abilities that far exceed Apple’s native apps. I went through more than twenty file vault apps for comparison, and this is the finest by light years: beautifully and professionally made, with every conceivable function, and every conceivable customization...
If you wanted an easy metaphor, most other apps are poorly-cobbled wagons, and this is an intergalactic cruiser capable of warp speeds. Stellar!"

My fave way to organize photos

Whether with music or photos, I’ve always preferred to organize my files in folders rather than albums or playlists. Since Apple has purposefully made the files app totally incompetent with photos, apps like MaxVault are the only way to go. I’ve tried a bunch of different ones and MaxVault is my favorite.

My only feature request would be the option to auto rename files in folders when exporting to a zip file so that they retain the order you put them in within the folder.
Small potatoes given how awesome this app is but for me that would truly be the icing on the cake!

So far, almost the perfect app.

Almost exactly what I was looking for to replace in the old app that is no longer being updated by the developer . But, I did have one very annoying issue. When I was transferring photos from the old app to the new app, somewhere in the neighborhood of about 2000 which I did at roughly 500 at a time, pocket file suddenly stopped working . I had to delete it and reinstall it. This was kind of frustrating because I already deleted the photos from the old app. Just to clarify I first moved the photos to the iOS photo library and then pockets files. Hopefully it will not happen again. Otherwise I would’ve rated this five stars

Truly well designed

My most important function for my needs was the ability to get files easily into and out of the app and to store them safely when in the app. This app was more expensive than most but works flawlessly. I tried 10 other apps and vaults and this was the only one that work clearly and logically. It is exceptionally well designed and thought out. Most importantly, when dealing with important files everything works and files don’t just end up somewhere you didn’t expect.
