VIPole Android update 1.7.2: encrypted file storage, file autoloading and switching to the new database format
The encrypted file storage with the function of decrypting files is added to VIPole for Android app. Now the mobile application is almost as full-featured as the desktop version. Please note that when you start VIPole on Android a dialog box appears that suggests switching to the new database format. This format corresponds to the latest version of the desktop application and facilitates faster application performance.
Encrypted file storage has previously been available only in the desktop version of VIPole, and mobile devices needed additional services for file encryption. Now, encrypted document storage is part of the functionality of the Android version. After encryption is enabled, files in VIPole on Android will be decrypted in the internal secure memory of the application when viewed, and the link with the read-only access will be sent to the external application.
To enable the encrypted file storage on your device, tap on «File storage» in the list of application settings and tick the «Enable encryption» option. The encrypted file storage function is now available only for Professional and Business VIPole users.
The extended list of features for file management in the update includes not only encryption, but also autoloading setting and a more stable sending of multiple files. Sharing images in chats is also improved: their size in previews is optimized, and vertical camera images are displayed in chat rooms accordingly.
File storage interface of the application has changed: now folders are arranged by years, not months, and it is easier to find relevant documents. Folders can be structured as a tile or a list for quick viewing.
