Steg is a simple handy app that allows you to send files through WhatsApp, popular messaging platform. It allows you to seamlessly send files relevant to your chat that's unsupported by WhatsApp without the hassle of you going out of your way and using e-mail or Drive, etc. For example another app you wish to show a friend or a zip file. It can also be used as a way to get around WhatsApp's image compression when it distorts your photos. Or to send an avi video. Whatever the file type, be it binary or text. Just make sure both parties have Steg installed. And whatever you want to share via WhatsApp, share with Steg instead. This gives you an Encode Activity that's already autofilled the input. Just click Encode and Share Encoded File and then use WhatsApp to share. Really simple.
On the other device the person receives what you sent and all he has to do is click on it from WhatsApp, select Steg to open it, click on Decode file and then Open Decoded File. That's it. Really nothing to it.

Thank you LordFME. This is a super app, adding a dimension to WhatsApp that many, including myself, have been longing for for quite sometime now. This app has impressed me so much that I've written an article on it on my personal blog. Thank you.

Thank you sir. Brilliant writing and a better documentation than I ever would have had the patience to make. I'm glad you enjoy using it. Cheers

    Excellent app

    Many thanks. Excellent app. It would improve the interface a bit and possibly in some way to recognize (alert) that the pdf in question was created with Steg.
