There are a number of apps on the Windows Phone Store that offer to keep your photos private outside of the OS’s built-in “apps corner” feature, but few have proven to be as useful or feature-packed as Kyms Calc from developer IdeaSolutions.
The app gets its name from its calculator functionality, which is really camouflage for the photo gallery, internet browser, and other features underneath. Interestingly, the calculator works as well, so it can be useful in a variety of ways, not just for protecting your stuff.
When you first start the app, you’ll be prompted to enter a four-digit PIN. This will be used in combination with the equals (=) symbol to unlock the rest of the application, so keep it safe. Once you’ve set up your PIN and have used it to log in, the app takes on a whole different shape.
Kyms Calc can be used to perform a variety of tasks. Think of it as a Swiss army knife of functionality. In addition to the aforementioned calculator and media protection functions, you can also look forward to a section for hidden contacts that visible only through the application, hidden audio recordings that can be stored secretly and viewed only through Kyms Calc, and an integrated protected file importer so you can import files from your PC or Mac.
