The last app I tried was Vaulty which also seems to live up to its promises.

After all, they promised the unsuspecting user that they would protect those secrets.

It would be better if the descriptions of these Android apps properly reflected what each app does and does not do.

Vaulty looks a little more considerate in that it asks for a more acceptable list of permissions.

It also offers a decent balance of functionality in the free version with optional extras in paid-for plugins.
