Tips for choosing keyword

πŸ‘Œ zadr for home address
πŸ‘Œ zmail for email address

2. Do you think the problem solved by this app is something that you can live with? Are you okay with typing the same text all over again? Are you okay with switching between apps to copy and pase text?

@djonnystevensabenz Thanks for your app. Works .

But:
Since we use it for sensitive data while typing, the app should work offline.

Though having disabled sharing of data, the app establishs data connections.

I don't know whether to trust.

Understood the concern, and I'm happy that people are caring for their privacy.

The internet connection is used only for feature usage analysis and crash reporting, nothing else. Trust can't be based on cheap words like this, so I'm open for any third party audit organization to perform audit, at any time, on any version. I'm releasing this app under my real name, if you didn't realize it. I'll be staying in this industry for long as I enjoy making things, so sending out private data isn't helping me at all to stay in the industry.

I suggest you to use firewall app, or AdAway, to prevent those data collection from being sent out. Try to force close the app once you've disable it. It should not have sent the data afterwards. Otherwise, Firebase team is in trouble.

And furthermore, no private data should be put into Typing Hero. The database isn't encrypted, so a targeted malicious app could steal the database if installed and executed, even if Typing Hero doesn't have internet access.

Do you mean exporting all Snippets, as backup?

Backup would be nice. Moving the order of the snips (including grouping)

Backup comes later, planned.

Manual ordering or what?

And by grouping, do you mean, a single keyword for multiple text?

Moving similar snippets together. Eg moving the fifth snippet to replace the second one.

Grouping similar snippets Eg email addy, phone numbers
