Weʼre raising £10,000 to Fund My Secret Folder App Update for iOS 11 iPhone

Location
Brighton, United Kingdom

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

This is a frustrating and heartbreaking end for the My Secret Folder application, as the company no longer has the time, money and resources to develop an update for the application that will support Apple’s new 64-bit only iOS 11.

If you have content in My Secret Folder and you are about to upgrade to iOS 11 or already have upgraded like many of you have, perhaps you will purchase a new iPhone 8 or iPhone X over the coming months etc, we recommend that you contribute to this new crowdfund so we can fund the app update and transfer your content out of either My Secret Folder or My Secret Folder Classic before you lose it forever!

What we will do:

When funding reaches £10,000 we will undertake to develop a simple yet effective way to update My Secret Folder to iOS 11 and simply allow you to extract your valuable information so that you may save it.

If we over fund for example a full £30,000 we will research the possibility of making a full update of My Secret Folder as it is intended to be used.

Who will this update help:

- You have My Secret Folder by Red Knight Interactive

- You still have the app installed

- You have not deleted and reinstalled the app

- The app is one of the following: My Secret Folder, My Secret Folder Classic

Who will this update NOT help:

- If you have deleted / removed the app

- The app is not by Red Knight Interactive

- The app is the original original app (by Bright AI from 2010) which was removed from sale many years ago

The initial tool will enable access to content within My Secret Folder and My Secret Folder Classic, and it will also remove all passwords.

MORE INFO

========================

Since its launch in August 2011, just over 6 years ago, My Secret Folder has been a huge success. The app had won awards, it was featured in Apple’s ‘Rewind 2011′ and it earned many recommendations from websites, security blogs and from many reviewers on YouTube.

Among a few factors updates for My Secret Folder ceased in 2012, one big reason; Apple did not allow the updates due to the look of the icon of the App as it broke their current guidelines, another is that as a free or very cheap App, our company could not support the App forever, although we did our best with customer support and how to use the App (it has been working for over 6 years now however).

Since iOS 10, Apple begun to display a launch notifications to users of the app that the app needed to be updated. Without being able to reach ALL users of the app, we saw this as a good indication for existing users that My Secret Folder and My Secret Folder Classic that the app wasn’t going to be supported in future iOS updates and to swap to another application that did have 64-bit support, a feature MSF doesn’t have.

The release of iOS 11 now enforces Apple’s move to 64-bit, and as a result, My Secret Folder will no longer work on current and future iOS devices that have Apple’s new iOS software installed.

This is a frustrating and heartbreaking end for the My Secret Folder application, as the company no longer has the time, money and resources to develop an update for the application that will support Apple’s new 64-bit only iOS 11.

If you have content in My Secret Folder and you are about to upgrade to iOS 11 or already have upgraded like many of you have, perhaps you will purchase a new iPhone 8 or iPhone X over the coming months etc, we recommend that you contribute to this new crowdfund so we can fund the app update and transfer your content out of either My Secret Folder or My Secret Folder Classic before you lose it forever!

We are doing our best to communicate this urgency before you upgrade, however we know not everyone will receive our warning of this issue. So in our blog link below, you will find a few frequently asked questions that may help any situation you are in.
