[prMac.com] Pfaeffikon, Switzerland - Pfaeffikon, Switzerland - Power APP has announced a security update for their app pick PONG to disable the possibility to see unrevealed picks. pick PONG is a free app to share pictures of any kind that are taken spontaneously without saving them on the iPhone, or rather without being able to save them. The picture - which the company calls pick - has to be unveiled by tapping on it during 15 seconds. The pick is only visible as long as it is tapped, if it is not tapped only a blur can be seen. After 15 seconds have passed, the pick disappears, forever. There was a possibility to see the picture unrevealed at double tapping the home button of the iPhone. This possibility is now disabled.
"The idea of pick PONG is to share a moment as long as it lasts, so it was bugging both us and users that a pick could be seen when multitasking. Even if it was just a small detail, people are sensitize about everything that reminds them just remotely to data security. We have been told by users that they often share selfies using pick PONG, and some of them seem to be rather embarrassing, one more reason to make sure that the pick can not be seen without tapping it. Besides, being able to see an unrevealed pick goes against the idea of pick PONG," states Christian Schaffner when asked for the reason of this update.
