Ruined by personal advertising prompt

I can handle advertising it's fine and the devs need to make money, but there is this issue wherein frequently when you try to access your files, the pop window of the personal advertising prompt appears and you have to agree with it or you won't be able to access the app and it's contents which would be fine the first time you agree to it. The most unbearable issue here is that it pops up EVEN if you don't have internet and if you already agreed to it the first time. If you are in a situation where you don't have a wifi connection and afford to use your data you are pretty much stuck with a blank loading screen that you cannot exit nor can you access the contents of your app leaving you with a brick. What's the point of having the app if you can access it. Please fix this at once I am tired of not being able to access the app because your pretentious agreement window keeps popping up (even if I agreed to it the first time) when there is no internet connection thus leaving the window not loading and not letting you proceed any further.


This app rocks, and yes, IT WORKS!

I’ve read a bunch of the reviews here and the ones which laud this app are *correct*. For those who slammed it, the problem exists between the chair and the keyboard, not in the app.

The app does what it claims and does it VERY well! Uploading works, as does sync’g between iOS devices - I’ve done both multiple times, even up thru 11.2, and everything functions flawlessly. There was a huge amount of thought and time put into this app to make it work so well. I’ve paid for both in-app purchases and feel they’re well worth it.

If you want an excellent app that lets you keep multiple types of personal media extremely well-hidden yet undetectable in plain sight and easily accessible *to the correct person*, this is the app for you. You’ll love it!


What happened to the calculator?!?

Ok, so first I was upset to basically extorted by this app a version or two ago because I had to agree to personalized advertising (on an app designed to protect privacy!), pay to remove ads, or give up on the app... I decided a one time payment wasn't too bad to get rid of the increasingly annoying and frequent ads. Fine. NOW with the latest version, the calculator feature is gone!!! The one feature that made the app appear inconspicuous is gone now?!? I liked keeping my secure password protected documents hidden behind a calculator rather than within an obvious vault app. Bring back the calculator. This paying customer is very unhappy.

Developer Response

Dear user,
Apps that disguise by other apps are no more allowed on the App Store. However we’ve introduced the fake pin feature that allows you to create a secondary archive and offers increased security: if you’re forced to unlock kyms you can insert the code of the secondary archive and keep the data of the main archive safe.
Best regards
