My first Android app: an encrypted virtual safe
After getting my Android phone, I was looking for an app that would allow me to create an encrypted virtual disk (or volume, or a safe), and that would allow me to put anything in it, securely.
I kept looking in the Android app store for a while, there are tons of tools for managing passwords and credit card information, and there are tools to encrypt/decrypt individual files. That’s not exactly what I wanted.
So I started writing my own little app, and after using it for a while, I thought, maybe I’d make a better UI and publish it.
So here it is, Renzhi Safe. It is an encrypted virtual safe (or disk, if you prefer). It does encryption/decryption on-the-fly, in real-time. When it is opened (with the correct password), it would work just like a normal disk or folder, and you can drop anything in there, create folders and sub-folders, etc. Anything you drop in there would be encrypted on-the-fly, transparently, without any user intervention. If you read your data/file from the safe, it will be decrypted automatically. When the safe is closed, it is just an encrypted container, and everything is opaque.
And you can get it from the Android market here.
