[prMac.com] Flushing, New York - DigitCont has introduced Private Notes 1.0 free for iOS, their new app that hides private photos inside a simple note taking app. Unlike apps designed for password-protected photo storage, Private Notes provides no hint that it can be used for anything but note taking. Users can safely share their iDevice with others, confident that the existence of any private photos will never be discovered. Only by entering the password in the app's search bar and then shaking the device can the private photo album be viewed.
With billions of people worldwide carrying hundreds or thousands of photos on their mobile devices, photo security has become a practical concern for many. Most users have at least a few photos on their iDevice that they would like to prevent others from viewing without permission. Password protection is unreliable, because users regularly share passwords with others when they share their mobile device. Passwords are also easy to find, frequently stored on the mobile device, a computer, or written down. The most effective solution to the problem of photo security is having no password-protected photo storage app that others are tempted to access.
Private Notes is the solution. With a simple screen icon displaying an ordinary notepad, Private Notes is a fully functional note-taking app. The user and others can use the app to dictate notes or manually type text. Notes are saved normally, and it is impossible to discover the app's true function. There are no prompts, reminders, directions, info, or settings. Only the user knows that entering his or her secret password and then shaking the device opens the app's internal, private photo album.
