"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).
Be aware that the new version its a train wreck and does not work properly. It simply saves ... NOTHING! I put a password then I save the data. When I open the file again is empty! Also, editing files created with an older version simply corrupts them (empty files)
Works right out of the box: one password, one file, nothing installed. I keep a file with sensitive information in it (stupid, obviously) only because there's too much to remember and too much to write down on paper. I need that info fast and I need it to be safe without any fuss. Your bit of software does exactly that. Thanks!
Nice and simple notepad!
