Privacy is a major concern to most people. If it’s not the government peering over your shoulder gathering personal information, it’s retailers, businesses, and, often times friends going through your phone! Much of the time you can’t help but divulge your personal information, but sometimes you can.

When you use App Secret, there are many ways in which you can safeguard the confidential nature of your photos, videos, notes, voice memos, reminders, contacts and more on your device.

Use App Secret to passcode protect your data using either a passcode lock, combination lock or even dot pattern lock style (which I actually prefer). Check out the features of this iPhone and iPad password protection storage app:

If you choose to write secret notes, you will have 4 ready-made folders from which to choose including Quick Notes, Homework, Idea and Work, or create your own folder. Tap the “+” to start writing your note, and later you can use the Sort function to sort by name or date in ascending or descending order. With the Contacts function, you may create a new contact or import one from your phone book.


These are the kind of personal data you want to protect from prying eyes – whether the curiosity of friends, kids or co-workers. The simplicity of the app and the clean outline make it easy to enter, edit or delete your information. Navigating the app is a pleasure and smooth sailing.
App Secret is definitely worth a look when you consider privacy a must!

#ScratchGate: iPhone 5 Owners finding that Aluminum Is Much Softer Than Glass!

New iPhone 5 owners are quickly discovering that there are some advantages, but there are some inherent downsides. The iPhone 5 hit stores last Friday, it is the lightest, thinnest, most sleek iPhone yet!

However, it is reported that because the slender iPhone 5 has an anodized aluminum back plate and since aluminum is a relatively soft material, (instead of one made of Corning glass as in the iPhone 4/4S), it is reported that the iPhone 5 shows more wear and tear than previous models. The iPhone 4 was a magnet for fingerprints. The iPhone 5 attracts scratches and scrapes about as easily.

Apple has long used the material for the colored iPods so the iPhone 5 isn’t Apples first device to employ anodized aluminum. They use the aluminum because the material is easy to work with and very light (compared to stainless steel).

Anodized aluminum can be painted nearly any color, it allows for a large range of color options. Available colors for the iPhone 5 are; black/grey and white/ (but remember this coating is only a few layers deep since is is in the first few layers of the metal, just a dye sitting in the top layers of the aluminum). Reportedly; since aluminum is a relatively soft metal the thin layer of paint can be penetrated pretty easily.

iFixit shows in the video below that the iPhone 5′s finish and how it can withstand keys or rings. You will see in the video that it scratches pretty easily. They note in the video that the iPhone 4 withstood the real-world scratch tests with ease!
