Default [App][2.3+][OPEN SOURCE] Secrecy - encrypt your files [Updated 28Aug]


INTRODUCTION
Quote:
Secrecy is where you can safely put your files without worrying that others will see it... They just can't.

I am starting this project since I have tried a number of Apps for secure file storage, while not finding one that best suits my expectations:
- some, like Vaulty and Hide it pro, do not store videos securely and just stores the raw file
- most only support storing pictures and videos. I occasionally want to store word documents but can't find a way.
- some produced by major software companies are simply bloated and litters temp files everywhere... That's just as insecure as not using them.

I am aiming to produce an all-rounded one that maximizes security but still ensuring ease of use and quick encryption time.
(Tailor-made for keeping your *precious* photos(or files) from your geeky dad/mom/friends/whoever-they-are's prying eyes.)

Hi,

Does your app create 'containers' like EDS on Android or Truecrypt?

Nope, it simply:

1. Finds the file
2. Copy it to "SECRECYFILES"
3. Encrypts it
4. Done!

Of course truecrypt as it name suggests, is the best crypto in the world, yet I would consider it as an over-kill solution in this problem.

Besides using them depends on deep hardware/root functions and may be incompatible for a number of devices.

i am not really sure since I use nexus 4 and it sorts of use onlt internal sd. Unaware of behaviour on other devices.

I've added it to the list of suggestions.

EDIT: I have checked, and it should always use External Storage.

Thanks =)
