The focus is certainly on quick and easy encryption and not on bright graphics or colors. While testing out the app, we had no difficulty accessing its core feature of getting a message encrypted. PGPTools is reasonably stable and responsive. We did not encounter any crashes while using the app. PGPTools app requires Android OS 4.0 and up.

To sum it up, a useful tool for moderate levels of encryption of your text, and a decent bargain for just more than a dollar.
