I thought mSecure 5 would surely be better than previous versions but now I'm left wondering why I upgraded. I normally never post on support forums but elt like I needed to vent because I'm so aggravated with this new version.
A few complaints / issues / ideas....
1 - USER UNFRIENDLY - Why are you guys making us 'start at the top' of our password list EVERY time I close out of one of my entries? If I open my entry for YouTube and back out of it, I expect to land back in the Y's, not in the A's at the top. A big pain in my.....
2 - USER UNFRIENDLY - Version 4 allowed us to import custom icons and use them as the default icon for different 'types.' Version 5 does not give us the option to globally use an imported icon. Instead, we are either forced to use one of your pre-installed icons or change each one individually. For example, I use a certain imported icon for all my shopping logins so I can easily notice a shopping login from my other entries. To use my custom icon in version 5, I have to go into each entry, one at a time, and change the icon. Another pain in my.....
3 - USER UNFRIENDLY - version 4 is always easy to access because an icon is ALWAYS in my notification bar. Version 5 icon does not automatically 'appear' in my notification list.
4 - ANNOYING - This may be an issue no one else is having but me....My device screen is set to stay on 'portrait' mode but for whatever reason version 5 flips from portable to portaitwith no rotation but for some reason version 5 wants to be it's own boss and flip to landscape mode. Drives me insane.....
5 - VISUALLY UNFRIENDLY - Not all of us like our app backgrounds to be 'white as snow.' Give us an option to change the background from light to dark. Even the simplest of Android apps offer this. A big strain on my eyes....
6 - SPELLING ERRORS - A good app developer DOESNT let misspelled words like 'accountseses' appear in their app. Today, I found three words that are misspelled.
7 - CHANGE 'TYPE' of entry after import. This is a no-brainer.
These are just a few complaints I have that aggravate me so much with version 5...So much , I'm seriously considering switching back to msecure 4 or switching to a totally different password keeper.
Let me clarify....
6 - SPELLING ERRORS - these are not words I entered in one of my entries, these are words from within the app itself. If I sort my list by type I get list of names like 'Locationses,' 'bank accountses."
Maybe its your operating system but I don't see problems 1,3,4 or 6 with iPhone, iPad or Windows.
Number 2 may be annoying but surely you set up the icon one time when you create the entry? The just forget about it?
Number 5 - I'd never noticed the white background but it wouldn't do any harm to allow this to be changed in the settings.
Number 7 - why do you want to change type? I'd like a more flexible way to display and access items through some sort of tagging - if that happens I don't really care about types. They just become format templates that you select when you initially set up an item.
Fair enough I wasn't trying to cause offense. My point about the operating system was that mSecure 5 seems to be quite different depending on the platform. I've not used mSecure on Android or Mac but most of the things you mention don't apply to iOS or Windows - even type changing is doable in Windows through an export and import.
Changing type does seem like a no-brainer.
Thank you for contacting us and I'm sorry about the issue you are experiencing.
I'm happy to discuss any other issues or complaints you might be having and I'm sorry that you're having these issues or complaints to begin with.

I had a similar experience. I went back to 3.5.7, I LOVE IT. There's no law that says you have to use the latest version. 5.5.5 has way too much white-space and is trying to do much. I would pay $300 and have something more efficient and simple, like 3.5.7.
Normally, I love to upgrade, but the upgrade has to actually be "better". I love the company, and there software, BUT NOT 5.5. I don't want software to be pretty, I want it to be a efficient.
Eden - Thank you for your response. I've attached 4 images. The first 2 images go w/ # 4. The third and fourth images goes w/ #6.
1 - A delay of a few seconds would be nice or an EDIT Mutilpe records mode that pauses the sync until you close out of EDIT mode.
2- The ability for the user to customize or "Pimp" out certain aspects of ANY app is a MAJOR perk for would-be users. How do you know it was an "unused" feature?
4 - I beg to differ. Please check images 1 and 2 of my Galaxy S3 tablet. The first images shows MSecure flipped to landscape mode. (the Samsung logo shows the tablet is flipped) The second image shows my notification bar with the LANDSCAPE/AUTO mode turned off. This is the only app on my tablet that auto flips, regardless of my settings.
5 - Thanks, I guess, for considering a night mode. Is there any updates to the user as to WHAT features you are developing? As a user, me knowing what a developer hopes to add to an app or what is currently being developed keeps me interested in using the app.
6 - The spelling errors are clearly DEVELOPER spelling errors. Please check images 3 and 4. An extra thought..... the ability to sort records or change the group your looking at from the home screen of the app would be nice. Currently you have to open the menu then choose sort. Look forwarding to hearing from you, Carrie
Thanks for the response and screenshots here.
