Great 😎

I was using the Video Safe 2 app which was good for many years until it wasn’t. I saw this app had the most reviews and they were positive. I think this company is based out of Las Vegas. The features are great and the app works great. I exported the photo via usb from old app and transfered photos via a usb to lightning cable to my iPhone. It worked great.

There are some really great features like if you put the phone screen down you can have it automatically open the music app for example. There is a decoy so you can put another passcode to unlock to a decoy with some photos that aren’t private.

This app has a yearly charge but I think it’s worth it so the developer of this app will keep working on it for years to come and improve it. Oh and I saw this app has been around since 2011 which is good. You want to go with an app that will be around for a long time. Next I would like there to be a disguise for the app like if I open it then it appears to be a calculator etc. I think i read they are working on that.

Thank you for supporting our app we really appreciate it! We will look into adding this functionality for a future update.

Update review for 10.1

First off, the update did fix some of the issues. Log in is faster, however, it seems if you import an video or edit, a large chunk of your pictures and videos become placeholders and not the picture itself. I’ve lost big slices of my content and since my device backed up with the new version, I can not restore back. So I hope that the next update will restore my items. I am sorry to say that I may have to start moving what items that are left to an different platform. I’ll give the designers of this program a week or so before I do. But sadly, until then, my use of the application will have to be at a minimum.

Developer Response ,

First of all, sorry about any problem. We have determined the cause of the problem and should have an update out to fix it ASAP. In the meantime, do not delete the app as it will delete your data along with it. Also, your photos are not lost, they are simply not visible.

Great app! UX needs improvement.

Ive been using this app (pro version) for many years now and its never lost a pic. The photo editor is amazing! Sometimes ill even import a photo just to edit it and then export it because the editor is so much more capable than the stock iOS photo editor. I use this app every day. It's persisted photos over bricked phones with no worries. Rock solid.

My only complaint is that it requires way too many button clicks to do most things. For example, to import a photo from you library it requires nine button clicks! The worst it the three dialogs that must be dismissed after every import. Two of them could easily be removed. The experienced user doesn’t need to read those warnings every single time. Editing a photo also requires way too many clicks. Taking a photo within the app is a great feature but each photo requires four clicks! It should be one.

The app is stable and well coded but it smells like the software developer was also the UX Designer. If thats the case it could really use a dedicated designer. Developers think from the perspective of the technology (for example the photo library they chose). Designers think from the perspective of the user. It's a huge difference and it shows.

One missing feature is nested directories. Even two levels would be enough.

Another missing feature is multiple (more than two) alternate vaults. There's no reason why there should be only two.
