I’ve been using this app for so many years it’s hard to even remember! I’ve been thru several generations of iPods and iPhones with this same app and this one has literally surpassed every other vault app I’ve ever tried by a landslide! Functionality is amazing and I’ve never had a major problem with them! That includes backing up and exporting everything to another device. I just have a thing of 2 for improvements. 1# PLEASE HAVE AN OPTION TO SAVE LIVE PHOTOS! God that’s one thing I’ve been begging for but no one has answered my prayers! It’s so simple but god I hate losing them just because I put them in the vault! And #2 Is More Of a connivence Thing, But In photo gallery now, you can zoom in on videos, so if you could add that as well as #1, I’d be set for life!😩 Keep It Up! And guys! This app is amazing, just pay 3 dollars and your set for life!

Great App, but why does it sabotage my memory???

I’ve been using this App as a Safe Box fo years, and it performs very well and is easy to use, however why does it hold on to precious storage space (3 to 4 Gigs) even after I’ve emptied it of everything, cleared the web history and have restarted my iPad several times? This is alarming to me. What is it keeping in the background to make the iOS system report there is still something there taking up precious space? I have to delete and reinstall again to recapture my storage space. It’s been doing this as long as I’ve had it. I can’t be the only one who’s noticed it. Why hasn’t this been fixed by now, or what is the explanation for it? Why has the developer ignored this question? I even asked the same via the website, and still no reply.

Only app that encrypts it’s storage

This app is incredible in that it’s database on the phone is encrypted on top of the phone being encrypted on top of iTunes backups being encrypted. Really gives me peace of mind in protecting my private content, which also includes media types such as documents and notes too. I’ve been using this app for years.

The last update in December broke video viewing from websites though. It seems like the browser spoofer is what’s broken but I can’t figure it out. On my jailbroken older phone I downgraded the KYMS version to the previous one and everything works fine but on my 11 Pro I can’t downgrade the app. Can we get an update that fixes video viewing/browser spoofing? I will immediately update this review to 5 stars when this happens.
