Introducing AxCrypt for iOS!

It’s finally published! AxCrypt for iOS marks the third platform for the AxCrypt software, now ranging from the Windows Desktop to the Mac and now to iPhones, iPod Touches and iPads! So what does AxCrypt for iOS bring to the table? It lets you decrypt and consume confidential information on the go! Integrating with the host operating system, AxCrypt lets you receive encrypted documents, presentations and images via the built-in Mail app and then unlock and view these files right on your device!

AxCrypt for iOS is based on the same source code as the upcoming version 2.x for Windows, and is written using Mono – the open-source, cross-platform implementation of .NET – with the additional MonoTouch SDK. For usage information, please see the App’s Help & Support page, or watch the app in action below:

The app is available today on the iTunes App Store.

Introducing AxCrypt for Mac!

AxCrypt is a leading open source file encryption software for Windows, having more than 2.6m registered users worldwide. Using file-level encryption, AxCrypt is an ideal choice for attaching encrypted documents to your e-mails or for storing files onto your USB drives, for example.

As the Mac OSX is gaining in popularity, it’s getting increasingly more likely that AxCrypt’s users would like to be able to access their encrypted files from the MacBook or iMac too, which is what today’s good news is all about!

Using Mono & MonoMac, we have – in cooperation with Axantum – built an AxCrypt application that runs on your Mac! Being built from the same source as the upcoming 2.x version for Windows, it’s 100% compatible with your existing files, which means that you can start using it today.

The application was developed and tested on Mac OS X Mountain Lion and requires the Mono Runtime to execute. We are looking into bundling the necessary runtime into the app, but unfortunately, at the moment, the current toolset is giving us headaches.

As its older sibling, AxCrypt for Mac is open source.
