Sicherheit mangelhaft

Fantastisches Design, tolle Funktionen. Die perfekte Tagebuch-App, wenn, ja wenn es doch bloß eine Verschlüsselung gäbe. ALLE Einträge sind im Klartext einsehbar, das Passwort zum Öffnen der App ist reines Blendwerk.

Versprochene Updates verzögern sich, was man verdauen könnte, wenn wenigstens die Verschlüsselung Einzug hielte. Was könnte es schließlich privateres geben als ein Tagebuch? Leider wird vom Entwickler immer nur erwähnt, wie schwierig solch eine Verschlüsselung zu realisieren ist. Ich wundere mich nur, warum es zahlreiche Mitbewerber in anderen Apps hinbekommen.

Trotz perfektem Design daher Punktabzug für das Fehlen DER Pflichtfunktion für Tagebücher.

*** Update 1.8.1 ***

IMMER noch keine Verschlüsselung. Ehemals angekündigt, geht der Hersteller erst gar nicht mehr darauf ein.

*** Update 1.9 ***

Jaja, Big Update. Nur kein Wort mehr von Verschlüsselung, siehe oben. Mir fehlen die Worte.

*** Update 1.9.3 ***

Wieder geht der Entwickler mit keinem Wort auf die vor langer Zeit angekündigte Verschlüsselung ein. Ganz großes Kino.

*** Update 1.9.5 ***

Es hat sich wieder nichts an den falschen Versprechungen geändert: Verschlüsselung Fehlanzeige.

A diary without encryption is questionable...

This would clearly be a 5-star application. Unfortunately, since it doesn’t feature encryption I think it is useless (as a diary, one of the most personal things of all).

Aufgepast, eure privaten Daten sind voll einsehbar.

Wer private Daten, Gedanken und Eindrücke nicht für jeden offen präsentieren will sollte von der App die Finger lassen. Schade an sich eine ganz gute Software aber ohne eine entsprechene Verschlüsselung seiner Daten sollte sich das zweimal überlegen. Ärgerlich auch da eine brauchbare Encryption nun auch wirklich kein kompliziertes Hexenwerk ist.
