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:



✔ Passcode Style

– Passcode lock style

– Combination lock style

– Dot pattern lock style for higher security


✔ Photos & Videos

– Create albums for your photos

– Passcode lock for individual album

– Photo Geotag and EXIF data viewing

– Take private photos and videos from within the app

– Easily import photos and videos from your photo library

– Export photos to your iPhone/iPod Touch

– Supports move, copy & paste


✔ Notes

– Passcode lock for individual folder

– Create and sort your notes by folder

– Supports move, copy & paste

– Search your notes


✔ Reminders

– Similar to iOS Reminders app

– Passcode lock for individual folder

– Supports move, copy & paste

– Search your reminders

– Set reminder priority


✔ Voice Memos

– Search by keyword

– Record and playback

– Rename, delete and share voice memo

– Open/close speaker


✔ Contacts

– Similar to iOS Contacts app

– Search by keyword

– New, delete and edit contact

– Batch importing contacts from address book

– Bach saving contacts to address book

– Share contact via vCard

– Supports most common contact fields and you can add custom fields


✔ Other

– Break-In report with image capture

– Fake password for decoy mode

– Easy to use interface

– Full Retina display support

– Developed for both iPhone and iPad so you only have to buy it once

– Compatible with iOS6 and iPhone 5


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!

New iphone 5 owners, please comment and let us know what your view is on this new material for the new iPhone5!

Best 5 iPhone Games + List of 25 Highest Rated iPhone Games & Apps – see Demo Videos

November 09 game ratings showed the first five games listed here are at the top of the heap. This monthly “best of” round-up summarizes the top rated games that we looked at in the previous month. Each game reviewed receives a 1-5 star rating relative to the other games from that month. Generally, a 3 or higher is considered a “good” rating.

These final scores are the games we would most recommend to others.

FREE Shipping at AccessoryGeeks.com!

November’s “5 Best iPhone Games” are highlighted here:

5 Stars


Soosiz – This is the best platforming game that we’ve played on the iPhone. It adopts the usual trappings of a traditional 2d platformer but perfectly mixes in a gravity defying mechanism that turns out to be a lot more than just a cute gimmick. Combine that with great controls and a ton of content, and you have one of our favorite iPhone games. (App Store)


Canabalt – This isn’t a particularly deep game. In fact, the average gaming session is probably measured in seconds rather than minutes. But with its simplicity and style, it managed to keep us coming back again and again throughout the month. You can try out the identical Flash version for free at Canabalt.com. ( App Store)

4.5 Stars


2XL ATV Offroad – We described this as a “console quality” iPhone racer. The game is technically impressive with beautiful graphics and manages to combine it with varied tracks, a proper career mode and Wi-Fi multiplayer to deliver one of the best racers in the App Store. ( App Store)


Boost 3D – We might not have been too over the top about the game when we first reviewed it, but over time we realized that Boost 3D is a game that we love to play. There’s something hypnotic about this tunnel runner that had us coming back to play it throughout the month. ( App Store)

And some highlights from the 4 star games from October which we also enjoyed quite a bit: DoomClassic, Hook Champ, Beneath a Steel Sky: Remastered, and Super KO Boxing 2. The rest of

As always, we expect there will be some debate about relative scores,

keep in mind that everyone’s ratings vary based on individual tastes.

Pet Playpen is an innovative iPhone app that allows you to play, feed, groom, and interact with five different pets!

You’ll never get tired of your pets and their adorable antics!

Pet Playpen features:

  • Interact with all of your pets and help them play with and use all of the available items. (Hint: These little rascals sure like their toys!)
  • Adopt up to 3 pets and choose from 5 cute types of pets (dog, cat, penguin, bunny, rock), each with its own individual personality.
  • Over 80 types of toy, food, and hygiene (washing and grooming) products available for your pets in the stores.


ooTunes Radio 2.0 ($4) from Oogli takes a very different tack: it is a more traditional aggregator and sorter of third-party Internet Radio streams, providing what might be called a network-savvy interface once you’ve tuned in a station. It provides you with access to nearly 8000 different channels, sortable by genre, country, or U.S. city, then looks up album art, artist, and song details for whatever’s playing. If it succeeds in finding those details, it then tries to provide lyrics, cross-reference a list of similar tracks using Last.FM, and offer you multiple options for purchasing the song or a full album containing it—in digital download or CD form from Amazon, iTunes, eMusic, CDUniverse, Half.com, and Secondspin. Additionally, if you’re willing to buy a $20 program called the ooTunes Media Server for your Mac, PC, or Linux machine, ooTunes can stream your iTunes and other media libraries directly from your computer to your device while you’re on the go—a feature that some users may find worth the $24 total price of admission.


TakeA Note

Almost eerily identical to Evernote, the opening user menu of Take a Note gives you options to add a text note, an audio note, a drawing note, and a photo note. All notes that are created on the iPhone are editable, sortable, and searchable. WiFi access gives you the option to transfer notes to and from your computer or other wireless enabled sources. Notes can be emailed directly from the program and the app uses your contacts list to add recipients.

This particular app streamlines the SMS (text messaging) process on the iPhone to nearly eliminate the need to look at the screen in order to send a text message. Cleverlike launched this initial app to aid in texting while driving the development of more apps using StealthType. New apps featuring this technology are currently in development. With mobile phone usage so integral in our daily lives, the StealthType technology aims to make it safer to use the iPhone in scenarios that require focused visual attention.

Pricing and Availability:
StealthType SMS 1.1 is only $0.99 (USD) and available worldwide for the iPhone and iPod touch exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.
