What I liked This app looks really good. It has some really cool features, like taking a picture of someone who is trying to 'break into' your private information. It is very easy to use and have very detailed discriptions readily available, you don't have to go searching for it some where else. Shake to hide is also very cool


Improvements There should be a way to change the image at the very beginning were you type in your password. When you type in your password wrong a few times nothing really happens there is just a message that give a time but it does not block password input. Also a way to set how many wrong passwords will trigger the camera.


General review This app is really good and with a few tweaks could really be the best security app on the AppStore to date. If you need a place to hide or keep any information secure on your phone then this is the app to do it with. The shake feature can be especially useful to quickly close the app.

What I liked This is a very feature rich and thorough application. It has all the features you would expect from an application like this such as password protection and private messaging. It also has a lot of helpful features that I would not have thought of like messages that self-destruct either immediately after reading or in 5 minutes, pictures taken of people who try to login unsuccessfully, and decoy passwords.


Improvements There are some very minor touches of professionalism that could be added to this app that I think would make it complete. Some alignment is off such as "Back" text on the back button and the name of the other person when you are in the message view. Also the buttons like "Back", "Done", "Call", "Edit", and "Info" look to simple. These buttons and alignment problems don't fit the quality and features of the rest of the application so it seems a bit odd when I spot these things. Seeing multiple consecutive popups requesting access to data is troubling, although i'm not sure of a solution.


General review Overall this application is very impressive in it's scope of features and usefulness. I'm not sure I have a lot of need for private messages, but if I did this app would more than meet all of my needs. It has some very interesting features such as Intruder Login pictures, Decoy Passwords, and auto-recall/auto-deleting of messages. This app is highly recommended to anyone with a need.

What I liked This app confused me because I thought that I could send private messages between any of my friends, but to be a private message both of the writers had to have CoverMe. The only thing I like is the feature to make private and hidden, folders and photos.


Improvements It could be a great idea to make private messages between one person who haves this application and the other havent it.
Another improvement is to add personal questions so the user could recover the password if he don't remember it, like the mail app do.



General review I think this app needs more improvements to make it cool and useful. I would not buy this application as it is now.
If the developers will add the ideas I've suggest or others improvements, I believe it will be more attractive to buy it and more useful to the buyers.

What I liked This app is the most complete phone security app that I have seen. I like the fact that you can use it to encrypt phone calls, texts, and hide sensitive data. Most photo vaults do not include the ability to hide videos but this one does. I really like the unlimited decoy accounts and the self destructing messages. There are no ads or in app purchases but the app is still free.


Improvements The TOS is really long and complicated. Generally if an app has a really long privacy policy or TOS full of legal language that I don't understand I tend to avoid it. I would always prefer to have a very simple and straightforward TOS that is easy to read. I don't like the fact that if the phone is stolen or the app gets deleted for any reason that there is no way to recover any of the data. It would be great to be able to save a password protected copy of the file on my PC.


General review This is the best value I have seen for this type of app. I don't really have anyone in particular to hide anything from but for general security this app is amazing. I really like the fact that I can encrypt my phone calls, encrypt my texts, and hide anything that I don't want anyone else to see all in one free app. The biggest downside is that if your phone is stolen or the app is deleted you will lose all of your saved information.

What I liked It is a great way to keep what you want kept private nice and secure. It provides nice, secure communication between friends. And I really like the fact that it is free! This is one of the higher-quality phone protection applications on the iTunes store.


Improvements Sadly, the communications feature requires the user with which you wish to communicate to have a copy of CoverMe to receive the messages you can send them. Also, I noticed that this app doesn't really encrypt the data that it stores, meaning that if someone gets ahold of your device and jailbreaks it,The information will be easy to access.


General review I think that this app is handy for people who have kids(or parents, in my case) who they don't want to have access to their personal files and communications. One of the largest problems with this app, however, is the fact that it doesn't really encrypt the data, meaning that if your iDevice gets stolen, all the theif has to do to gain access to the files in this app is jailbreak the iDevice.

What I liked 1. I like that this application is very well made and from the beginning it was developed as a quality security tool.
2. This is a premium application at a great price: FREE and I hope you keep it this way.
3 The user-interface is very simple and easy to use for all ages and kind of people.


Improvements 1. When I first opened the application, I received a message saying that i can't recover or reset my password. This is kind of scary for me and I highly suggest you do something about it.
2. I'm afraid that my data is only passworded and not actually encrypted in some way. You should let people know this. And if not, encrypt the informations.


General review This application is amazing. A very good security tool to use for all your devices. I hope the data in this app is encrypted, but I don't know for sure. Overall this is a must-have application for security reasons and has an unbelievable price for a premium solution: FREE

What I liked I like the general idea of basically having another set of data that is in a secure format based on a password. Additionally, I like that the password can be as simple as a 4 digit code. Too often password have to include too many different types of characters and typing them becomes difficult on the keyboard. I also like that each feature has a hidden and visible setting.


Improvements I don't like that the other person must also have the application to keep items secure. It is going to be difficult to convince many people about to use the application to therefore create a secure connection on both ends. You should be able to keep items secure on just your end should they not have the application.


General review I think the idea is great and necessary for certain situations. I do however think it is going to be difficult to create the buzz needed for enough people to download this application in order for it to make sense to use. Additionally, I don't understand how revenue is created via this product. Finally, I don't understand where the data is stored (pictures, messages, etc). Overall, it's a good idea, but there are some things overlooked.

What I liked This is a great app to keep your texts, phone calls and contacts private. It serves its purpose with a bit of social networking to form private "circles". What I liked best about this app was that it securely and privately holds photos that are of great importance that I don't want to accidentally delete! I had a few screen captures that I didn't want in my iphone photos folder and wanted them private. I'm able to securely hide them in this app!


Improvements I wish there was a way to see who is using this app without having to "invite" them with a spammed email or text message! Perhaps logging into Facebook I can see which friends are using this app. I would definatly rate this 5 stars if it has this feature!


General review This app does exactly what it's supposed to do!!! I forgot my password and there was no way I was able to get into this app until I found the paper I wrote the password on! I just wish I knew what friends of mine were using this app! I felt awkward sending them a text and email requesting them to download the app. I really love the feature that safely and securely hides your photos!

What I liked I liked the idea of this app. I have been looking around for an app that I could actually lock the specific folders I didn't want my daughter to get into and mess with. I like that this program will protect multiple areas and not just one thing all with just one password.


Improvements I would love to see an option to have separate passwords for the different areas if one chooses to keep them separate. And this app would be AWESOME if there was an upgrade to allow a pass code lock for each folder. That you could chose to lock maybe just one, or two folders and not all the folders as that is the reason the apple products come with a main password option in the first place.


General review I personally didn't find this app intriguing. It has a lot of potential. But for my needs I didn't see the point in setting up another messaging session when I already have the iMessenger. I think it would be a pain in the butt to be checking messages in more than one area. The app was hard to load to the iPad. Had to go into sync settings and add it. Did not want to install automatically.

What I liked I honestly really liked the ease of use with this app. It allows you to privately text and chat away to your friends and others without having to worry about people going through your phone. There are a lot of really nice features like the self-destruct SMS, which is good if you're worried about disclosing personal information to someone and having it accessed by others. I like to think it's especially great for people who have siblings and nosy friends.


Improvements I would like to see integration with another texting service, perhaps like GVoice or something similar. This way your friends wouldn't be required to have CoverMe if they already like using another program. It might be a hard sell getting people to download this specific app. In fact, I literally had to beg a few of my friends to use this app in order for me to accurately test it. However, multi-service integration isn't possible, it's still a very attractive app with a ton of features that people will really enjoy, as long as they can get their friends to download it.


General review It's a reliable app that you're probably going to get a lot of use out of if you're worried about people going through your phone, especially with the amount of information everyone shares via texting and pictures. It might be a bit of a hard sell as you can't freely text people, they have to have CoverMe installed. But really, the features are fantastic and the app looks and feels great. I highly recommend it to absolutely everyone.
