At first glance, it is not immediately apparent what Secure Temple does. The app is created without interface in mind. It lacks clear directions, has multiple unmarked menus, and doesn't even describe what the function of the app is supposed to be (unless you read the description in the App Store). That alone is enough to frustrate and chase away most users. However, behind the obtuse design and stark menus there is a tool that can be extremely useful for anyone that creates and stores large volumes of passwords, secret keys and other number strings on their iPhone or iPad.
Because Secret Temple is created by a developer for developers, it doesn't feature many of the same basic functions you would expect (or desire) in an app that will be used so often. You must create a user or database, create a password for that user or database, and then create password files that are then encoded with an additional level of security by the app. There is also a key and password generator built into the device to make it easier to create secure passwords, but it is even less user friendly, and is not ideal for anyone eager to minimize the time spent accessing their passwords.
Nonetheless, if you can navigate Secret Temple's menus, setup your password files, encrypt them and save everything, you will be pleased with the results. Combined with the premium upgrade that includes export and import functionality, as well as search and database structure management, Secret Temple becomes a very powerful app that is perfect for IT professionals and Web site developers with dozens or hundreds of strings to keep track on a daily basis.
From Mariusz Stolarski:
Secure Temple is an application that allows to store any confidential and/or sensitive text-type data in a very secure way. ___ (Lite & Pro) ___# allows to store text-type data in a secure encrypted form,# uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES),# allows to arrange database in a file/folder structure (Temples and list of Temples),# allows the standard copy/paste operations on text-type data,# supports many users/accounts per device,# automatically logs user out when application moved to the background or user in idle for 5 minutes,# The encrypted database are stored only on users device and in the safest possible manner supported by device manufacturer (iOS hardware-level file encryption, iOS sandbox protection),# all database are stored in the AES encrypted form and with the additional hardware-level security protection provided by iOS (which is executed 10 seconds after the device is locked),# application uses internet connection only for Ads support and for export encrypted database on users request,# password generator. It generates strong password with defined range and content (digits, letters and symbols can be selected),# default user can be set. It simplifies access to database,# digital access allows to start client (if default user set and allowed) with digital panel lock,# random digital lock (PIN entry) increases security by randomizing the position of digits on the panel,___ (Professional) ___# allows freely amendment of the structure of the database,# allows to share the encrypted data by exporting via email,# allows to backup encrypted copy,# all exported database are protected by AES encryption using users password (NOTICE! encryption is as strong as the password is).
___ Version 1.5.0 (Lite & Pro) ___# update for new iOS version,# new trial period: the Professional version for free!,# new approach for presenting secure content (by dividing a string of characters by 4 (or 2 if it is digits only), which makes complicated passwords more readable,# some minor defects fixed.
