GnuPrivacyGuard for Android (GPGA) brings GnuPG, the most trusted name in
encryption, to Android.  Easily encrypt, decrypt, sign and verify files of any
kind, just by sharing them to GPGA. This app aims to provide a complete,
integrated cryptographic toolkit integrated into the Android experience. GPGA
provides solid encryption for files private, and for verifying that files are
who you think they are.  It includes optimizations to make it operate many
times faster than other encryption packages on Android.

GPGA provides an integrated experience, so clicking on OpenPGP files "just
works".  You can also share files to GPGA to decrypt, encrypt, sign, or verify
them.  GPGA will respond when you click on a OpenPGP fingerprint URL (one that
starts with openpgp4fpr:).

GPGA also gives you complete command line access to the entire GnuPG suite of
encryption software. It also serves as the test bed for complete Android
integration for all of GnuPG's crypto services, including OpenPGP, symmetric
encryption, and more.

GPGA is available in: Arabic (العربية), English, French (Français), German
(Deutsch), Norwegian (Norsk), Portuguese (Português), Spanish (Español).
