Default [MOD][Xposed][PGP][Security] Android Email PGP Support

Android Email PGP


Summary
This Xposed module aims at adding PGP support to the native android email client.

Introduction
I started creating this module because I started using PGP in my daily mail exchange with some friends and colleagues, but I was unsatisfied with the support of PGP in Android. There is K9-Mail and an addon, but I really like the native Android email app more, so I started working on this.
I tested this app on CM11 (Android 4.4.4) and the native installed email application. Samsung/HTC email clients won't work.


Download
Download it straight from Xposed Repository


Source
Find the source on github.com - Feel free to contribute

Features
  • Import your keys (private & public) into the app
  • Decrypt encrypted messages
  • English and German translation

Current limitations
  • You may only import keys by opening an *.asc file from anywhere on the device (Dropbox etc. work as well) by choosing to open the file with my app

Bugs
  • Headerviews in the emails get added multiple times sometimes

This is a marvelous module. I am using AguaMail, would be nice if you can perhaps extend it for third email apps in the future.

Sadly I don't see a lot of activity here although the idea has a lot of merit in this day and age.

I suspect that a lot if heavy mail users are using POP3 or I'LL clients, such as K-9, Kaiten and a few others. Some already have the ability to work with APG which has been around for a while but not much us happening with it.

A true, well working PGP client would be nice to see.

Thank you, I think the limited feature set is the problem here - I am working on implementing open keychain for faster development progress as I do not need to handle all the PGP related stuff myself..
