Security is a major issue in all devices especially Smartphones nowadays because all your sensitive data whether they are some personal images or account details are stored in there. It’s all lying there in front of everyone like an open book which anyone can read. You have passwords to stop any unknown from getting into your phone but then you have friends as well who are always looking for something “interesting” and a picture with your latest girlfriend is just the right spice missing from their life. Moreover, some people have their card details or important documents as well in their phones. That’s why some people are always cautious about giving their phones to others; even if the other person just wants to take a look at the latest game he has downloaded. So instead of thinking about the problem, solve it!


I am talking about the latest iOS app called ScipherKey that has been developed by Shahab Hamidi-Rab. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 7.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.

ScipherKey is a “secured folder” where you can store all your files whether it’s an image, PDF, passwords, card details, notes, etc. There are some pre-defined categories that you can use or you can add more of your own. Then there are hundreds of items that you can choose such as Dropbox account, eBay account, Driving License, etc. All these items have a different format and when you choose them, you have to just fill in the details and it saves you a lot of time. You can add any number of these items in any category to simplify it further. However there is a search button as well so even if you’re not good at managing, no need to worry!

There are many other security apps in the App Store similar to this one. Then why is it so special that it has a price tag of $2.99 when many of them are available for free? Let me tell you the reason; in fact, there are two. First, it offers military grade 256-bit AES encryption so that your sensitive data is always protected. There is a password generator as well to help you build stronger passwords. Second, it allows synchronization of data with other iOS devices over multi-peer connectivity. This technology is very new and allows you to exchange data with other devices without any internet connection. Yes, you heard the “no internet connection” part right. Moreover, once you buy this app, you can use it on all your iOS devices running iOS 7.0 or any later version. So it makes a lot of sense to invest your $2.99 in such an app, right?


This app will obviously be preferred over many others for its features. It is more secure, has a user friendly UI, allows data sync without internet; so what else do you want!

Pros: 256-bit AES encryption; allows data sync over multi-peer connectivity; intuitive UI; buy once and use it on all your iOS devices.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
