[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - To help people protect their personal memories, AVVOTEK Ltd today announces the release of Safe Diary, a new iPhone app that allows for easy entry of private thoughts and images while safeguarding them in a password-protected journal. The app is designed to offer a more realistic and pleasant experience, making journal writing quicker and easier than with other apps.
With Safe Diary, users can easily type in a personal journal, capturing their thoughts, feelings, and experiences from the day. A unique feature of the app allows images of any shape or size found on the Web to be inserted in the diary, adding color and life.
The app's designers enhanced the user experience with realistic paper texture feel combined with 3-D "page flipping" effects and browser cropping or adding camera-roll photos into entries.
"The unique visual design of Safe Diary makes writing quick, easy, and a very enjoyable experience so you'll want to go back and write some more," said Adrian Sule, Founder of Avvotek Ltd. "The app helps you vividly express your thoughts through the use of images and text in a realistic diary environment."
Personal thoughts are kept locked away inside the Safe Diary app, protected by an encrypted password that the user chooses. No one can read the journal without this secret PIN.
After opening the app, users can start writing quickly by tapping "write". The design of Safe Diary includes more room to write entries and edit images than other apps, making the experience more pleasant and efficient.
The app not only encourages people to write about their lives, it also makes it simple to add photos. Users can choose from either the Camera Roll or newly taken pictures. Images can be rotated, resized, and moved into position.
Safe Diary is one of the first apps to support grabbing and cropping an image from inside a Web browser, and adding that image to the diary text. With just the swipe of their finger, users can draw a line around an image they find online to copy it (for example, a round photo of earth or around someone's head).
The image can then be quickly added to their personal journal in the app. The user can rotate, scale, and move it to fit their taste. Text will automatically flow around the photos and browser images that users insert thanks to a smart algorithm built into Safe Diary.
"Text flows nicely around images for a visually impressive page layout without any extra work from you," Adrian Sule said. "With Safe Diary, it's easy to create a keepsake that you'll enjoy looking back at again and again."
The app offers several convenient ways to find diary entries. In Calendar view, users can quickly jump to any entry according to date. "Read" shows a list of entries with helpful snippets of text and images. Users can check specific days for personal thoughts or click to read / edit them in a larger view.
Users can also browse their entries in a smart scrollable list, then tap to open in full screen mode. The search box will filter entries by keyword for easy access. Users can flip through pages with a realistic 3-D book effect that uses flipping and image curling animations.
Another way Safe Diary protects private thoughts is with an iCloud backup that keeps a copy of writings safely online. Users can pull down on the homescreen and release to sync. Users can also email all entries to themselves as PDF files or use the iTunes file share feature.
Features of the Safe Diary app include:
* Protect private thoughts - Safeguard personal writings with an encrypted password
* Simple journal writing - Unique design helps make writing easier and more efficient
* Enhance with images - Photos from the iPhone camera and images from the Web browser can be added to entries
