Great app! Would like to suggest to add a time lock feature. Such for instance that one could snap a photo of an actual combination lock, after blindly changing it's key code. SafeCamera would encrypt the picture and allow access to it only after a pre-defined time has passed, before no viewing of the picture allowed. Thus one could use the combination lock after changing the code without looking at it to create a real time-lock safe, similar to Amazon's kitchensafe. Which then could store real-world things to which one would only get access to for instance a day or a week. Could also be used to time-encrypt other files. That would make a great addition and is a market niche.
Solid Security Using the desktop version's source code I was able to verify the assertions of the author. Indeed all of his claims are accurate, and I'm pretty happy to have developed a little command line utility to bulk encrypt/decrypt my photos on my desktop computer. This is the only photo security solution on Android (that I've found) that has auditable security without any red flags (if the app requested network privileges I wouldn't trust it). The only missing feature is video support. I have my fingers crossed!
Very good Please add, stealth mode (Call Dialer to launch, ability to store video, in app video player, custom background images, allow to play large gifs, remove from resent apps list. I only use it to store photos. Much better platform then Andrognito, but lacks a little customization. I see an eventual undeniable 5 star rating in the future.
So far the best This app encrypts photos as you take them. It is thoroughly thought out so that the photos you want safe are always encrypted - even if your phone itself is not secure. You can hand your unlocked phone to another person, for example, without worrying whether or not you left the app open or remembered to 'lock' your photos. It locks the gallery after being closed or inactive. Overall, right now, it's not very feature extensive - but it does what is supposed to well, and is very simple.
Seems to work very well Actually encrypts the files and seems very secure. Shame it only does photos. It will encrypt video but will not play them within the app. A "hidden" mode would also be useful as would it not showing when the "recent screens" button is pressed. EDIT: I forgot to mention that I bought the paid version as it seems to do most things I need.
UI awful. It needs a lot of improvements to be more user friendly. Sorry Alex, but it's very basic made. Read what (other) people say and get on with making it better.
