There's no public key encryption for Android yet, but that's an important feature for many of us. APG tries to fill that void, with new features quickly being added. Hopefully APG will grow into a fully functional OpenGPG implementation of GPG or PGP calibre.

NOTE: requires Android 1.5+

Had to reset phone and inadvertently wiped backup data for APG. I have my old signature key but cannot figure out how to get APG to recognize it as MY key so as to sign with it.

If you copy and paste an encrypted email text into apg, it decrypts it without asking for passphrase. This with both sent and recieved mail. Why is this? Kinda defeats the purpose?!?!
