Thank you all for your mostly very positive user reviews on Google Play. I really appreciate it.
There are as well reviews containing suggestions, bug reports, etc. On this page I will try to react to some of them. BTW, I generally prefer if you send me suggestions and bug reports to my email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPDATE: As developers can now react to user reviews directly at Google Play, new review responses will appear directly at Google Play.

Sad user after update, I lost all my saved data.
The latest aWallet version 2.4.3 (at the moment) was placed to Google Play on February 21, 2013. More than month before this comment was written. If there was a problem with aWallet version 2.4.3 such reports would appear much sooner after the app was updated in Google Play. Anyway, the latest aWallet version is already installed/upgraded by majority of users (182457 now). Hope that so many users that have already upgraded are OK with this version. This I believe kind of proves that the update did not cause any loss of data.

Upgrade lost my data Free app did not make local backup, so this app could not find any backup - which it looked for in the wrong place, to begin with. End of story: lost my data.
After chatting with the user it turned out she had uninstalled the free aWallet version before data were imported to the Cloud version. Uninstalling deletes the app and backup file as well.

Good app but... The only bad thingh? Can't backup data... So when you delete app for a reason, maybe software etc, you have to replace all..
aWallet can of course backup data: see post at FAQ How to make a backup.

Gives a real false sense of security. I had LOTS of passwords and personal info saved and needed to get my phone replaced. I used the "backup" feature and it says, "Data saved to: /mnt/sdcard/Android/data/org.awallet.free/files/data.crypt" with a caution to transfer the data.crypt file "...for the case you lose your phone." Well, I copied my entire SD card and then kept the card before sending the phone off for replacement. When I tried to restore - there is NO SUCH FILE on the card. All my data is gone. Thanks for another waste-of-time application.
The message in the Backup dialog says: Make sure to transfer the data.crypt file to your computer via USB for the case you lose your phone. If you did this you should be able to restore your data.

After keeping dozens of passwords, account names ext. The app updated and loss ALL information stored.
aWallet does not not change unlocking mechanism between versions. Believe me I'm fully aware that incompatible change in unlocking mechanism would destroy aWallet project completely. There are many automatic tests verifying each new aWallet release. As aWallet has now hundreds thousands of active users it seems that upgrades does not causes data loses. I would expect much more complaints in Google Play or in a support mailbox in such a case.

Good app. Can you add more? Nice app to save all passwords under relevant categories for easy reference. It would be awesome if you can add a username field too. This would help store the usernames for various websites along with their passwords in one convenient and secure location.
There are only 2 Categories without Name field: Credit Card - which uses Holder instead of username. And another is Email Accounts - there is used email instead of username (email is typically used as username at web mail sites).

Icon. WTH did you folks go and change the icon?!
The aWallet app icon now has blue background. The blue color is the same as color used in the application top bar. And it is also the same color as is used in this web site's menu.

When does it support search? As more and more web login accounts got stored in the application, I really hope there would have a seach function. -narke.

Pro Mode Hi developer can you please comment on on the upgrade for 2.49 to get Pro mode. For all those new features. Don't get me wrong it's a great app and it's really a 5 star but at least detail it when your posting a change log that you're going pro . It's this backhanded nonsense that really get us going. And would be nice to discount it for 24 hours when you do this as I won't spend more then 1.00 on any app.

Really!? this app was storing my passwords just fine until I entered my password wrong too many times and then it just deleted everything-no warning, no "hold on you're about to..."--just DELETE!!!!!!
aWallet can be configured to self destruct itself after predefined number of not successful unlock attempts. This is turned off by default. And there is also warning displayed before auto destruction, however this warning can be disabled as well in Settings. Be careful with this feature. If you turn this on, make sure to have backup of data.crypt so that you can restore your data.

Imposible to recover pwds After installing the app in a new phone I can not recover all my .csv backed up files
by Restriktor (February 22, 2012)
Data deleted while locked! Am I doing something wrong: program allows database to be deleted while locked?! (Options, more, reset aWallet) True, it asks twice, but if someone unlocks my phone, that someone can erase all my data??

Great app. Easy to use and does what it says. Only wish I could alter the time between it asking for a p/word again. Annoying!
by casper (January 2, 2012)
Great! This is really excellent with the flexibility in customization n minimum permission for sensitive data. suggest to prompt password n go straight to category list be more efficient user interface, less clicks

It will export your records in CSV format, but there is no way (that I've found) to import data. ...continued... I do have 2 small issues: the encryption text and my background are both black (can't read options - please note, this is unique to my system and not a program problem); no PC program to edit and use encrypted files. But, wow - like i said: Finally, my search is over. Very nice."

This application is malicious! It sent an sms advert to all my contacts!!!!

Great App This password app is easy use and has good features. I found one BUG in the system. It can't export data to CSV(unencrypted) file on SD. It said, "Export Data Failed!"
by Tan (October 20, 2011)
Great App!! One issue though.. The issue being the passwords are shown as plain text.. i have seen in some apps where we can toggle password data between plain text and "***".. this helps protecting our passwords from some peeping eyes... Rest of the aap is great!!! 5Start Any Sync option planned??
