This app is great... if you never want to change devices ever again. When trying to export to a new phone, it can't process special characters(possibly including spaces). The editing inside the app also doesn't allow you to remove parenthesis from certain keys like nintendo or facebook. I honestly can't believe that a security app developed by the biggest name in tech has such a horrible oversight. As it is now I'm stuck burning a backup code. You only get a few of them, so that's bad.

The knock against this app seems to be the lack of a backup option, and no master password for locking the app. Both are easy to overcome. Put the app in the secure folder, which requires a password. For backup, you can export the codes to an old phone or tablet. You can sync manually with the export/import option should any changes arise. Tap and hold copies a code to the clipboard, and you can also rearrange entries by holding and moving, up or down. This is a perfectly good app!

You can't transfer across devices with smart sync, have to use QR code on old device. Found this out the hard way after the fact when I sold and wiped my old phone after sync. What a garbage system, even if for secure purposes. I've lost access to a couple accounts thanks to this. There's no clear notification if I have to do back up? Screw you, seriously screw you.
