App of the Week: My Secret Folder

By Justin D'Andrea

Are you fed up with people always snooping into your phone?  If so, My Secret Folder is perfect for you.

This app keeps all your personal pictures, private notes, passwords and personal contacts out of sight from your family and friends.

The icon might seem like a folder with apps in it, which basically fools some people into believing that they can see the content hidden there.  For the nosy people that tap on the folder, a screen appears requiring them to type in your passcode to enter the application.

The password form then acts like a security camera by taking a picture of any person who attempts to log in to the app. The images are viewable on the app’s settings panel right by the GPS location of the attempt, letting you know the date and time the intruder was trying to login to your secret folder without your permission.

Not only can you view a list of intruders, you can clear the list any time you wish.

A part of the app that is very clever is the Decoy Mode.  You can set a passcode in Decoy Mode, which allows you to login to your secret folder, but what you can see is a restricted folder, with no settings panel and no files and folders shown. The folder is completely empty, which you can use just in case people like your mother or girlfriend were livid that you wouldn’t show them.

All the settings are well-arranged, which makes it easy to change your settings.

Introduced this past September by Bright Artificial Intelligence Ltd, My Secret Folder has been given four and a half stars on iTunes.

The app works in 34 different languages, such as English, Spanish, Dutch, German, etc.

My Secret Folder is compatible for the iPod Touch, iPhone and the iPad.

My Secret Folder is a $0.99 lifestyle app, and ranked No.11 in the iTunes app store.
