Editors' review

LockBox is a security app for the iPhone that creates and stores chains of information that would be otherwise insecure in a notepad file. The app does this with a password up front and individual files that contain whatever data you want to store in them. While the app runs smoothly, it lacks a lot of the newer features in other security apps that streamline the process of creating new entries and saving them for future access.

When you open LockBox for the first time, you can log in with the default 0000 password. Be sure to change this as the app doesn't prompt you to do so right away. You can start creating new entries here by pressing the "Add" button, but each entry is manually created. There are categories that will change the icon associated with the entries, but no templates for entering that information. The app is fairly responsive, however, so the process doesn't take long and your entries can be reorganized at any time from within the app. There is also an auto-sort feature if you want to organize them by certain criteria. The interface is functional; and while the app doesn't take advantage of the iPhone 5's larger screen, it runs smoothly, nonetheless.

LockBox doesn't include import options for photos or videos, and the entry process requires a lot of manual work. But if you need something basic for storing passwords and bank account information in, don't need a Web backup, and don't need the added premium tools like import/export, this app will get the job done in its free iteration. There are better, more robust apps out there, however, so evaluate your needs before entering your data.
