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

XDA:DevDB Information
Email PGP, Xposed for all devices (see above for details)

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.

Thumbs up Great Idea!
This is a great idea, and a good way to implement it. Thanks for thinking of it. I look forward to using this..

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..

Sign more encryption by everyone is more better
Was this in part inspired by webPG.org ?
(not those nefarious rascals acting as keymaster and gatekeeper)

IMAP is my druthers (when both server side searching and filtering is available). Let POP die.

No not really, it is more inspired by my personal need. I am using PGP in thunderbird as my mailclient on my desktop with some friends and I was annoyed that I can not access emails when I am on the go.

Unfortunately no futher progress until now..
