Default file encryption that is dropbox and multi-platform?

I am looking for a file encryption app that is dropbox and multi-platform compatible. I currently use a truecrypt container stored in dropbox for sensitive files that I need under both windows and Linux. Unfortunately, truecrypt doesn't exist for android. So I'm looking for alternatives.
thoughts?

I'm in the same situation. Been hoping truecrypt would come out as an app, but no luck yet. I've been looking at RR File Locker. Looks pretty good and has some good reviews.

I have connections with people in investigation / forensics work, and if you have a decent lengthed truecrypt key then they aren't getting anywhere near your files. Honestly, I would stick with it as it's a proven application and provides top notch encryption.

Default wuala?

Maybe not answering your question exactly but you guys may want to check out Wuala. It works similar to dropbox (but has even more features) and securely encrypts your data before it leaves your machine (unlike dropbox). And of course, there is an android app.

Hey thanks sharkynolike. I was looking for something like DropBox but due to their security model I was not impressed. DropBox can (if they need to. i.e. warrant, etc) access your files. Wuala encrypts before the file is sent. No one but you has the password.

I did not know about Wuala. Just got storage space there. It is going to make a great backup location and the crypto sells it.

Wuala seems to fit the bill and has a nice interface. Thanks

This is exactly the reason I recently switched from Dropbox. So far, I am really enjoying Wuala as it does everything dropbox could, plus more. I also like the fact that you can gain additional free storage by trading local storage. Anyway, glad you found it useful.
