Great App, Few Quirks and Suggestions


First off, this is the best photo/time organizer I’ve found after trying dozens of them. There are however a few quirks and features I’d love to see...

1. When files are deleted, there’s no confirmation (nor for emptying trash). An errant finger and things are gone

2. When files are deleted the space is NOT released from the app. This tells me the files are still sitting on the device / in the app and haven’t actually been deleted. Have to complete delete and re-install the app to get back this space which is a pain.

3. I’d love for the slideshow to pause with a quick tap on the image, then be able to resume right from where it left off.

4. When viewing a slideshow, it would be great if swiping back or forward went to the previous / next slide shown - right now it goes to the previous / next image in the album order, not in the slideshow order (this would allow to go back to the last shown side or forward to the next one skipping ahead).

5. I have no idea how to “buy” the upgrade. I haven’t been prompted to upgrade yet, maybe that will happen automatically at some point. A buy/restore purchase should be a menu option.

6. There should be a setting to avoid backing up the contents to iTunes backups.

That’s all, you’ve got a solid app that’s on its way to being a solid 5 stars!

Perfect for me


I desired a specific set of requirements in a “video vault” type of app, and after trying around 10 different apps, this one nailed them all:

1. Plays wide variety of video sizes and formats, plays vids in sequential order (doesn’t stop between vids).
2. Files can be presented in a clean, text format with minimal thumbnails, and can be reasonably sorted.
3. Creating folders and moving files around is easy and straightforward, and syncing files with iTunes seems exceptionally solid (compared with other similar apps I’ve tried).
4. The UI is streamlined and minimal. There’s also a help icon!!
5. Uses my preferred password format... the dot-square, for input.

Everything else in the app, for me, was frosting... but, if your main needs in this type of app match mine, I can highly recommend it. If they don’t, I still recommend checking it out, overall it seems to be good quality.



After trying no less than five different apps in the wake of the loss of HiFolder, I have finally found the one that provides me with all the functionality I needed: nested folders, File Sharing import, TouchID security, and a decoy vault. The only thing that could be improved, would be to allow full passwords instead of just PINs, although support for numeric passes up to eight digits does measurably improve security over the usual 4-digit option. Besides that, a perfect app for the secure storage of photos and other files.
