PicVault app review: pictorial peace of mind

Reviews

Introduction

PicVault is a very simple app for iPhone and iPad that offers a basic interface from which you can view all of your images, with the added bonus of being able to keep everything under lock and key thanks to passcode protection.

This app makes a very uninspired addition to the Photo & Video category of the App Store due to its minimal level of functionality, but what it does do I personally think it does quite well, making it well worth checking out if you're just looking for a secure storage medium for your photos.

Secure Your Snaps

What we've got here is a handy little app that you can use to store all of your photos in a simple and secure interface, with the ability to photos from directly within the app via your device's integrated camera so that they never leave the app.

The app icon is displayed as a calculator to ward off would-be intruders, plus the title of the app itself is labeled as 'PV' to make it more inconspicuous on your iOS device's home screen.

What's more, you'll be able to keep all of your images safe and secure with passcode protection, so while the functionality doesn't really extend further beyond that, I do think you'll find this app to be quite reliable.

Final Words

PicVault isn't the most spectacular iPhone and iPad app in terms of appearance or offering tons of features but it certainly stands to offer more security than your basic iOS Camera Roll.
