I hate this app!! I saved all of my pictures on it, very important ones. And I have all my pictures for school projects and more on it. Well the app stopped working and will not load any of my pictures or even open the app. Terrible app!! Do not download! It will delete your stuff!! I emailed them and they never answered. Pathetic.
This is the best photo privacy app that I've seen on the Android Play Store so far. Does everything that I want it to do, no login email required, and the album/photo limits and Ads are completely unlimited after a 1-time fee of $2.99. Though it would be nice if external SD was available in this all. However, there is ONE problem that prevents me from giving all 5 stars. Knowing I also have this app on iPhone, there is one difference that the Android version lacks. The ability to take in-app SCREENSHOTS is not available, unlike on the iPhone where that function is available. Gives the following error: "Unable to capture screenshot. Prevented by security policy." If y'all can fix the in-app screenshots to make it just as good on Android as it is on iOS, then I'd be more than happy to give the full 5-star rating on this app.
I had the paid (pro version) of this app, last November during and auto update it ereased all my pictures without asking,,, it was a clean sweep,100% on its own...I could not prevent it or stop it. I was pissed and tried everything to stop it, but no luck. On top of this, the version that installed on my tablet was the standard ( not the pro version that I had purchased)... talk about adding insult to injury. .. I sent an email to the app developer via their website, but to this date no one replied. so. what kind of rating does it deserve,,, you tell me. ed
Owning the iOS version, I expected the Pro Version to be at least somewhat similar ... IT IS NOT. The pro version is more like a free iOS version. There is nothing pro about it. You can't even save files to SD card. Total waste of money! Very disappointed with this Android version.
I don't know why, but every time I try to open the app now, it just displays a white screen and crashes. For a long time it was working fine, then out of nowhere it stopped working. I refuse to delete the app, because there are hundreds of irreplaceable photos and videos there, and every onces in a while it does work. So I know they are still there, I just cant access them.
Works great in that when you sleep your phone or leave the app it will ask for a password again. Seems pretty secure. The reason I'm giving only 2* is that when I exported photos back to my phone it was in a totally scrambled order. It would take me weeks to unscramble all of these and out related photos back next to each other how I originally had them...
