Ratings and Reviews
Very useful & powerful backend
I might bump this up to 5 stars. The only reason that I’m not giving it 5 stars is because I messaged the dev and never got a response. Also, I would like a few more changes to give more flexibility. I do need to add that it is very flexible as is, but I have some ideas that might make it even more flexible. Small thing, but easiest example. There is a slider that allows you to choose from x to x in steps of x. Ie 1 to 10 in steps of 1 or 1 to 100 steps by 2. That is very flexible. On ratings, I was hoping for the same ability. To choose how many stars instead of the flat 5 stars and maybe the ability to choose between stars and thumbs up symbol. Maybe the ability to import my own icons for categories even if I need to follow a guideline such as size or resolution or file type. If I could make my own and save as whatever and then import into the app. These are just small things but being able to get a response from the dev is very important. Some devs are very responsive & some aren’t. I do usually reflect this within the rating. This app is a very well-made app. I have no relationship to the developer. I like passing on great apps. I wish Apple had a way to see reviews by reviewers so that I could see if reviewers are dependable. If you see my reviews, I try to provide a clear review based on the ability of the app, flexibility, and responsiveness from developer. I am as honest & unbiased as possible.
Very practical and customizable.
I’ve used this app a lot and successfully and securely. iPhone 6s user.
• It locks under a user-designated password if you go to you home-screen or another app -even if you don’t close Boximize first. I feel like you can’t get more secure.
About practicality: there are a vast number of types of information that you can keep secure here. I’ve catalogued dating profiles, passwords, padlock codes, and bank account numbers into it. You can search for your entries by name or scroll through them.
It allows you to create any category of information storage systems with custom colors, logos, and names: then -within those categories- you can customize the number and kind of data slots for each entry. Alpha, numeric, or drop-down multiple choice selections.
Why it’s not a five star rating: I haven’t noticed any way to link information to other media or logins (like how google stores passwords on a home computer).
You are able, however to double-click your apple home button from Boximize to another app to access a login (for example), and double-click again to see your apps in the app-selection view and refresh your memory about a passcode. It won’t, however, let you re-direct to Boximize without re-entering you user-designated password.
Well worth it, in my opinion. 👍🏼👍🏼
This is one of those apps that should have way more momentum than it actually does. It’s possibly one of the most useful applications in the entire App Store. It allows you to completely customize the data that you collect across a wide variety of input methods. I am always afraid that the developer will abandon this project and have it disappear into the void of abandoned iOS apps. I hope that never happens because the scope of this little program is immense. It’s extremely user friendly unlike every other app that has similar features. The only thing this is missing is a way to run basic reporting from the databases that you build. If it could generate even the most basic of user defined reports then this would be 5 Star all the way.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
