[APP] Garble (Send Private Messages) V4.0 (24/01/2020)

Updated 24/01/2020



Want to send private messages to family and friends? Don't want governments watching what you're saying? Then Garble is for you

Garble encrypts a string with a passcode of your choice, and then encodes the encrypted string with base64. The only way someone can decrypt it, is by using this app and and knowing the pass phrase you used.

Usage is very simple - decide upon a pass phrase with the person your going to be sending the message to before using :D

1) Enter some text
2) Type a pass phrase (or select a person from the 'Lock' icon)
3) Garble it
4) Share it

You can grab it from here

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.minooch.garble

or support me and buy the paid version - just removes the please buy link, Ads have been completely removed.

If you want any improvements - please let me know

Perfectly working. No issues.
But a suggestion:
Save passwords in profiles. Like person A with password xxx, person B with password aaa

Thanks to all for the feedback.

I have a look at saving the passwords against people's names - would make it much easier to remember. Thanks

Another suggestion:
Can you add a string to the code that recognizes that text is garbled with your app and automatically opens app and copy text to garble if I click on the text. I just have to type in the passphrase or choose it from a list (suggest in previous post).

That's a great idea - Will have a look on how to implement that.

Thanks :D

That's now implemented & I believe it's working quite well - saving pass phrases is next :D

Cheers

I've managed to get time to add this yesterday & it appears to be fully functional.

Although......

I can't update the app on the market because Admob banned me (no idea why & they won't say), so I've gone to a new ad provider & am waiting for approval. Hopefully I can release it soon

Version 2

Added the ability to save pass phrases by people's name - Click the KEY icon to use

On an existing item, a normal press will select & place the pass phrase on the main page. A long press will ask if you want to remove the item.

Also cleared the input field after Garble/unGarble

Works nice and I feel secure sending sensitive messages with this, but could you add built-in SMS abilities? I don't mind sharing with my SMS app, but the wifey won't use this app because she feels that sharing with the SMS app takes too long and is a pain in her ass.

be great if you could implement this kind of security into the built in sms app in some way that makes it simple to use without the person on other end having to be on android for it to work or having to input much if blackberry users can have this sort of security with not having to do anything be cool if we could do same

I will have a look when I get some spare time & see the cleanest way to implement it :D

This is really cool! but I wish I had a secure way to tell them the password! with wiretaps and all everywhere... -paranoid-
I've heard telepathy works quite well ;)

& Thanks to everyone
