Ratings and Reviews
Great app but one important omission
I had a simple password vault app for many years where I had aggregated hundreds of passwords and other sensitive data. This all went south with the iOS 11 update. I searched high and low for a comparable replacement and eventually determined that it does not exist.
I opened my mind to the current offerings and found that KeyReel’s unique approach might be the best fit for me. First, it allowed me to import the CSV file the was the backup from my old system, which provided a big head start in populating all my stuff. Because my backup was not current, I had what I thought would be a lot of manual entry. Not so!
Because KeyReel installs on my Mac and automatically saves new login info to my phone, it was a simple matter of opening the site and using the Mac’s keychain function to populate login credentials. Voila! The entry with credentials is instantly captured to KeyReel.
On the phone, all of my entry’s appear in alphabetical order. The site’s icon automatically appears on its corresponding line - a nice esthetic touch.
There is one glaring omission that could be easily fixed: Currently, the title of the entry is derived from the URL of the site. Most of the time this has a good result as the domain name will accurately reflect the name of the site. But, this isn’t always the case and you inevitably end up with a fair amount of entry’s that are hard to find because the URL might be an IP address.
This shortcoming could easily be overcome by adding a “Title” field with the URL wherein when left blank, the displayed title would be derived from the URL as it is now. When Title is populated, then that would override the URL info and display instead.
This minor addition would yield a 5 star rating from me. So, if that deficiency has little impact to you, I would highly recommend KeyReel. Otherwise, perhaps wait for the next version.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
