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.

This is the one....


First it was St@sh. Then it it was no longer supported so I had to migrate to a new app. Then I found Photorange but same thing. Hadn’t been updated in years so I knew I needed to find a new app to put my files in. THIS APP IS THE ONE. I’ve looked and looked and looked. Tried them all. This is the best. It’s better than Keep Safe and it’s crazy prices. Everything about the app is on point and gets better and better.

It only needs airdrop support so you can send files from one your iPhone to another or MAC.

Keep up the great work!



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.
