Love. Nice tiers of storage options and security options. Fast, easy to grasp and navigation is pretty snappy. Only bad thing, and this could be all me, is that I didn't understand the logistics of how and when things actually saved up into the cloud. And how to tell for sure (missed the little icon things and their meaning at first). I thought putting autosync on was all I had to do. I ended up losing photos when I switched phones because some hadn't made it to the cloud. Not a big deal thou! โ™ฅ๏ธ

Needs a *completely* offline mode. Its stupidly dubious syncing the listing of your private files to another location which only requires your vault password to read the contents of. And what's with all the 'Authorized Devices' listing under General Settings?? There's like 6 entries all the exact same model as my phone with no additional infos. You cant even remove them. Are they my logins?? Who knows..

I've used this app for a while and never had issues until recently. A few odd my files went missing in the cloud, then after upgrading phones and adding new files they were lost immediately and after several attempts at contacting customer service I still haven't heard back... will be very disappointed if I lose those files permanently...
