How do I keep the data on my phone from being overwritten when an update occurs? Why can't the new version simply overlay on the phone but keep the file data intact? I went to my phone the other day for data, and found that the new B-Folders was there - without the data that I needed at that moment in time. I will look for another option besides B-Folders. I don't want that to happen again.
Simply brilliant and top-notch for all these years. I've stuck with v3 Desktop for the ease of the clean inbuilt browser going straight to my bank account logins. v5 uses plug-ins for Chrome/Firefox/Edge and I don't want to put up with the browsers' advertising and startup fluff. All my Androids on v5 sync between themselves without a problem and to the PC when the v3 Desktop initiates it. No worries.
Great app! Has so many great features. Additional features I wish it had was ability to archive in a seamless way once items are checked without deleting/ some assurance against vendor lock-in that is, if the product ever stops being developed I can export the data and not be locked into a product that is no longer being developed or supported or if I find a better solution that I can export. This is possible with open source solutions. Would be great if b-folders had some sort of open source platform or if at least underlying database was open source...perhaps these things are in place and I'm not aware....
I wish developers would be more specific than just "bug fixes" updates.. makes me wonder if any of my data was breached or got lost and if this version isnt just as buggy.. I'm real quick to update based on things like added translations, or new features, etc.. bug fixes I have to hesitate and consider uninstalling because it was obviously put on the market with bugs in it..
Would be nice if there was cloud syncing to backup and restore. I don't know if it's possible to even restore database if something goes wrong.
I have everything in there! Credit cards, bank accounts, memberships, and myriad of lists and personal info. I love knowing that it's encrypted and local only with no Internet exposure. I got my wife to use it, and have it installed on Win10, Ubuntu 16, Macbook Pro, and Chromebook.
