Hi there, the app in the subject has been "discontinued", and shortly with iOS 11 will be unusable since it is still 32bit. I've been searching ( testing and purchasing ) quite a few apps, but they always lack some key feature, so I'd like to ask you advice to you.

Key feature :

  • decoy password / touch ID access
  • capturing intrusion with photo
  • dropbox interaction
  • easy copy/paste/reorganizing of media inside
  • video player
Optional :

  • sync between iOS devices
  • nested folders
St@sh was a really good app, until discontinued, lacking only the intrusion pic capturing and sync, but they stopped updating it few years ago, and now, even dropbox integration doesn't work anymore...

Any hints ? So far I've tested :

  • Photo Vault
  • Secret folders Pro
  • Hide photos Video
  • My photo safe pro Plus many more...
Thank you !!

I use good reader, it does not have the decoy stuff and does not support animated gifs, but other than that it is feature rich.

It's got cloud storage so that covers synchronizing across devices. Reorganizing within the app is as easy as drag and drop. TouchID is an option. Not sure on the decoy password and I'm pretty sure it doesn't have the camera capture feature. Also not sure on Dropbox. The app is free with in-app purchases available so give it a shot and dig around a little.

Hi, I'm searching for a beta tester (via Testflight) to test a my replacement software (for iPad for now) for St@sh.

I'm using my software from few months and for now I have:
1) Internal Browser ( but St@sh browser was better, I think)
2) Import from browser (this feature is good, you can import from ZIP and contents can be inside nested folder inside ZIP)
3) Structure of folder in 2 levels ( you can have a root folder and some nested folders )
4) Move, delete, copy and remove contents

For now miss:
1) Good internal browser
2) Download contents from browser
2) Import from library
3) Import from iTunes (maybe not important)
4) Some settings

If someone is interested please contact me.

Thank you
