This alpha release of our command-line developer tool brings GnuPG to Android
for the first time!

GNU Privacy Guard Command-Line (gpgcli) gives you command line access to
the entire GnuPG suite of encryption software. GPG is GNU’s tool for
end-to-end secure communication and encrypted data storage. This trusted
protocol is the free software alternative to PGP. GnuPG 2.1 is the new
modularized version of GnuPG that now supports OpenPGP and S/MIME.


Before using gpgcli, be sure to launch the app and let it finish its
installation process. Once it has completed, then you're ready to use it.
The easiest way to get started with gpgcli is to install Android Terminal
Emulator. gpgcli will automatically configure Android Terminal Emulator as
long as you have the "Allow PATH extensions" settings enabled. Get the
Android Terminal Emulator at
