Keep your private life private™
THIS APP IS FULLY FUNCTIONAL ON iPHONE 5/5S AND iOS 7, HOWEVER IT ISN'T "OPTIMIZED" FOR THIS NEW HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE YET. WE ARE WORKING ON AN UPDATE AND APOLOGIZE FOR THE DELAY. PLEASE DROP A MESSAGE TO OUR SUPPORT EMAIL WITH ANY QUESTIONS.
iDiscrete has a very simple Mission Statement:
"To securely store our user's private content (videos, images, notes, et al.) on their iOS devices, and to do so in the most discreet way possible."
You can think of iDiscrete as a digital safe, where you can securely store all your private pictures, videos, notes and more. Rather than requiring a suspicious looking password or PIN to enter the app, iDiscrete uses its patented Touch Sequence Protection™. This works by bringing up a fake "Loading" screen upon entry to the application. An unauthorized user will think the app is really loading, but the device owner knows that this is actually the password screen. A series of taps in the correct places (the "Touch Sequence") will open up the app. Doing nothing will boot to a dummy app.
This unique feature, combined with an application icon and name that do not give away its functionality, mean that an unauthorized user would NEVER suspect the true nature of the app.
Keep your private life private with iDiscrete!
iDiscrete distinguishes itself from the competition in a number of important ways:
► PRICE ◄
iDiscrete is half the price of its nearest legitimate competition. DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND READ OUR REVIEWS, AND YOU WILL FIND THAT iDISCRETE IS BY FAR THE BEST VALUE, NOT TO MENTION A SUPERIOR APP.
► SUPPORTED FILE TYPES ◄
iDiscrete has a massive list of file formats it supports, and here is it:
JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF, 3GP, ASF, AVI, DIVX, DV, FLV, GXF, M2P, M2TS, M2V, M4V, MKV, MOOV, MOV, MP4, MPEG, MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, MPG, MPV, MT2S, MTS, MXF, OGM, OGV, PS, QT, RM, RMVB, TS, VOB, WEBM, WM, WMV, TXT, DOC, DOCX, RTF, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX, PDF and MP3. Whew! (And we are adding more all the time…)
► UPDATES ◄
We have a number of future upgrades planned that will add even more functionality to iDiscrete, many of which were taken directly from real end-user suggestions. Other apps do not offer the exceptional customer support and updates that we do.
► WIFI HARD DRIVE ◄
Using our innovative iDiscrete File Manager, you can get your content onto your iOS device using any computer with a web browser and a WiFi connection. In addition, YOU CAN PULL CONTENT OFF THE DEVICE IN THE SAME WAY. iDiscrete allows you to upload any file type (unsupported formats go into a "Misc." folder) so in this way it doubles as a mass storage device. Stand alone apps that do this often cost more than iDiscrete!
► It's right in the name: DISCREET! ◄
Other apps simply password protect your content, but to prying eyes this can still look very suspicious. Thus, iDiscrete not only hides the sensitive content and effectively password protects it, but it conceals the very fact that an app with this functionality exists on the user's device. It avoids a situation where an unauthorized user may inadvertently click on the app, see a password, and ask you "Hey, what's this??"
IT NEVER LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO HIDE WITH iDISCRETE.
• iPhone 3GS (or newer) or a 3rd generation iPod Touch (or newer) ARE REQUIRED. Older devices should download "iDiscrete Legacy" instead.
• A device running iOS 4.0 (or newer) is required to run iDiscrete 2.0.
• WiFi network is necessary to run iDiscrete File Manager, used for uploading content to the device.
What's New in Version 2.2
iOS 5 bug fixes
Everything I could want and more coming!
My girlfriend and I enjoy making videos of an, uh, intimate nature, and with my iPhones HD camera its really easy to capture these moments. Unfortunately that meant that I couldn't let anyone just browse through my phone or use it without my supervision. Until, that is, iDiscrete came along! An example of it's awesomeness: My mother was browsing the apps on my phone looking for interesting ones that she might like. She opened the iDiscrete app, and after watching the loading screen open up into the notes, she just closed and it continued on. My personal girlfriend videos and pics are safe and sound!
This app does everything I could ask for in a privacy app. They really have this whole thing sorted out. Talk about intelligent design!
The developers are really responsive and have confirmed they are working on an iPad app that will allow wireless transfer of photos and videos so your devices are always up to date!
They also told me they will be allowing batch uploading from a computer via the web server in version 3.0 coming soon!
Change of heart
This is an update. My last review was wicked long and two stars, so I'm saving you the agony and just posting the update.
Since the last update, I have to agree that the app is again, living up to the standard it originally established. I would have given it 5 stars but like a few people said, it's a little slow starting up (post password entry). In my case, I have 5 or 6 videos and roughly 300 pics saved in the app. I'm not sure if the extensive delay is due to there being so many pics to decode or what but its a little depressing. Honestly, I've considered checking into other discreet apps just for the speed factor. If I'm in a hurry, which I frequently am, I don't wanna wait 45 seconds to a minute to upload my pics or whatever.
On a better note, the app finally recognizes the pics on my camera roll and does an excellent job hiding them.
Lastly, lets just put it this way, I'm willing to sacrifice the "secret touch sequence" for speed and the ability to change the icon appearance. Other than that (but speed is the kicker for me) this is an above average app. Worth the money but could be so much better.
Great App! Versatile and secure.
Pros- security is perfect for public and family. Easy upload from camera roll. Folders can be reordered manually. I have over 1500 photos in it and it doesn't crash.
Cons- synchronization each time you turn it on can take several minutes before you can get in to see your folders. No mass-download back to phone or from website to computer. Still have to go through picture by picture to get them copied to local drives. Folder capacity seems to lag at 200 photos each; then it starts responding really slowly.
Overall, I love this app. Definitely has saved my private shots and collectables. Worth the buy!
