In addition to the Windows version, we have also improved our Android app and BoxCryptor for Android is available as version 1.1 with the following improvements:
- Edit support: BoxCryptor now detects if you changed a file after you opened it in BoxCryptor and automatically encrypts and uploads the changes to your Dropbox.
- Create new folders: You can now create new folders in BoxCryptor for Android.
- Create new encrypted folders: You can now also create new encrypted folders by specifying a name and password. Advanced options like filename encryption or key size are also available.
- Download support: If you have a file manager app installed (currently supported ES FileExplorer and OI File Manager), you can download and decrypt (or export) a file to any location on your device.
- Serial number support: Some users have not been able to purchase the BoxCryptor for Android Unlimited Key app, because their device is not support by Android Market/Play or because they’re using a Custom ROM. The Unlimited features can now also be unlocked by entering a serial number which can be purchased on our website.
- GUI improvements: The GUI has been adopted to the latest Android versions and guidelines
BoxCryptor for Android v1.1 is from now on available for download in Android Play (or Android Market).
