New! a crowdfunding campaign for a new version is here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/a-better-encrypted-notepad - support a new, improved version of Encrypted Notepad!
"Encrypted Notepad" does only one thing, but aims to do it perfectly - a Notepad-like simple text editor where files are saved (and later loaded) encrypted with industrial strength algorithms. Available both for the desktop (as a Java application) and on Android.
Unencrypted data is never stored on-disk. Source is released (on SourceForge) under the BSD license.
- Symmetric key AES encryption
- Pre-encryption compression
- Convenient and safe!
- Android version available on the Market!
The application is a really nice idea, although the recent Beta6 JAR is not working correctly: when you try to create a new '.etxt' file it simply saves nothing. Older Beta5 version was working perfect. Just to comment some improvements: the Android app graphic interfaces could be better looking (Holo interface design and not old Android looks).
Nice and simple notepad!
simple and smart: never writes anything to hard drive (which would be a big problem if your OS is using a journaling filesystem like ext3, ntfs, et cetera.)
Excellent for secrets storage with multiplatform requirements (and Dropbox).
