Keeping data of all kinds safe is an important ability to have on a mobile device. Developer Lunabee’s new app oneSafe gives you a secure place to store passwords, credit cards, financial information, pictures, and more, behind multiple layers of security; and features tons of customization options to make looking up your info easy and painless.
How It Works
The app features a choice of different access methods: the standard pin-code, an alpha-numeric password option, and the Android users’ familiar pattern swipe code. Once inside you can manually create entries among several different categories, and keep them organized in different areas of the “safe”.
For instance, the Wallet is designed for keeping credit card info, driver’s license, any type of sensitive information that may be found, naturally, in your wallet. The Computer section is for logins, the Work section is for… you get it. You can of course customize these sections by renaming them, or creating and deleting them.
Each entry itself is highly customizable as well: for instance, for a credit card item you can use an integrated Google Image search to find the bank’s logo, and it will be placed on the image of the card that sits on the safe’s “shelf”. You can also take pictures of actual wallet items and include them in the app, or import documents using the “Open In…” feature of the iOS platform, making it easy to bring in items from other apps that you want to be kept more secure.
Pros And Cons
I loved this app overall. Using a swipe-code is a great option that I don’t have on the password app I’ve been using since forever, and it makes it fast and easy to get at your data. The app offers iCloud integration, so you can easily port your data across multiple devices (the app is universal, so one purchase gets you an iPhone and iPad copy). Backup is built into the app as well, though only through a WiFi network connected to your computer (and I have to assume it also backs up during wired sync connections with iTunes, though that is not clear in the app’s description).
There’s a strange mention of an upgrade in the App Store description to “Endless Safe” for $5.99. I’m not sure what that refers to, as I couldn’t find it in the app itself. That is how much the app costs in the first place, so this better be either some amazing functionality or just a leftover from a prior limited free version of the app (with an unlock for “Endless Safe”). Not sure on that one.
Other than that, the app is smooth and easy to use, and the customization options for each item make it very thorough. You can even “flip over” each item of data to write free-form notes, phone numbers, and email contact info.
OneSafe is a great passwords-and-more app that offers a clean look, good iOS and iCloud integration, and lots of little extras that make it easy and fun to use. At $5.99 you can certainly do better price-wise in the App Store, but I haven’t found a free app that matches oneSafe’s features and experience.
