Can I just take a minute to talk about Picture Safe? I stumbled over this neat little dude late last night and just had to check it out. When you combine your multimedia, games and camera with your phone you can pretty much expect it (along with everything on it) to pass through the hands of many. Picture Safe is essentially a photo organizer that will safeguard your photos against wandering eyes and fidgety fingers.
There are a couple of things I really like about Picture Safe. There are several ways for you to get pictures into the app, from selecting them from the default Photo app to Web, FTP, Bluetooth and USB access. Getting them onto the app is really easy and straightforward and once they are in there, you can just as easily backup, manage and organize them. Picture Safe supports high-res images up to 2500×2500 which is great for displaying and exporting images back onto your computer, definitely a one-up from the native Photo app which downsizes them. Now there is also a Video Safe function which you can upgrade to in-app for $2.99 and that will allow you to import videos into the app just as easily as images.
And while those features are already looking pretty good, the greatest part about Picture Safe are the multiple ways in which it protects your stuff. Not only is there a pin, but you can set the app to send incorrect logins to a decoy area with generic images. If you forgot your pin, you can set up questions to answer for the reset. You can use the camera to take photos directly within the app. There is even a Quick Hide function that you can enable that will switch whatever
you were looking at to something tame/lame of your choice. The greatest thing is that the app is subtlely labeled as “PS” on your iPhone, so you won’t have to worry that it’s just screaming that you’ve got something to hide.
This sort of attention to detail really makes Picture Safe a quality photo utility app and while it’s probably used mostly for what you might think it might be used for, Picture Safe has proven itself to be a very useful asset for a variety of people, not only your regular 18 year old boys (and girls) but parents keeping their kids from accidentally deleting photos to professional artists, photographers, models and even an investigator needing to store and transport classified images. What Picture Safe offers is well worth the $1.99 it costs in the AppStore but you can get it now during their 3 day
anniversary sale for $0.99.
