What is this?
This app is meant to be a spiritual successor to Secrecy, created by @Doplganger a few years ago.
I was looking for an encryption app with a good UI, which can work completely offline - no sign up, cloud syncing or other annoyance.
Secrecy seemed like a good option but had some issues which needed to be addressed. As it hasn't been updated in a long while, I decided to take a look at the code and here we are!
What does it look like?
Well, here are some screenshots!
But why is it a calculator?
I noticed some comments on Secrecy's thread (like this) which suggested that the app's icon and name scream for attention, and should be something more subtle. Which is why the Calculator is being used as a front to hide your secret data.
I do realise that this is not a foolproof disguise. But should be useful to an extent anyway. I'll also try to keep the Play store description as vague as possible.
And for those who don't want it, there will be an option to disable the calculator and go straight into the main UI soon!
Also, a big thanks to Xlythe for the code. I just made some changes to the UI
It actually does a lot more than the stock AOSP calculator. So if you like their work, do check the original one on Play store (which has some more features not included in this one yet).
Cool, so what to expect from this initial release?
Right now, I think it'll be fair to tag this as alpha. Some features from the original app are missing. And there could still possibly be some bugs here and there (your feedback required).
But all the basic stuff should work fine and I've tried to make the UI fluid and intuitive, while fixing a lot of issues. Hope you guys like it!
And what are the plans for future?
Well, there are many!
First, I will be adding all the essential features like backup/restore, etc from the original code back again.
And then, if this app gets a good response, I intend to implement more stuff like fingerprint unlock, etc
Okay, so where do I get it?
You can get it from Play store for now. Other sources will be added soon
(Please wait for a couple of hours while the first build gets published)
Please report any bugs you find.
And tell your friends about the app
Also, kudos to @Doplgangr and L-Henke of course. The code was a mess () but they did a lot of good work in there!
