Use

This App is not only good for those who already know a bit about cryptography but also for the newbies having no previous knowledge of this art.

The application gives access to different kinds of coding tools and explains their popular usage, for example Atbash cipher, Scytale, Beaufort, Caesar, Polybius Square, Keyword and Autokey cipher.

Other examples include Blowfish cipher, Shacal2, Cast 5, Cast 6, RC2, RC4, RC5, and RC6. It also provides information about various Hashes like Gost, Bcrypt, and PBKDF2 (hashing) with java|php example.

It is a great way to find your way around the world of cipher, encoding, and hashing.

It also has many useful tools like WhatsApp message decipher tool, Anagram solver tool, Password Strength checker tool, Hash Cracker resources and many more.

Pros of the Application

–    It is a great app to learn cryptography and use cryptographic tools/algorithms for real-time messages.

–    Features password generation and anagram solving tools.

–    With the file encryption feature in tool section, you can encrypt files of different formats and use the encrypted code for different purposes.

–    Even if you are not going to use all of the features there is a lot to learn. Each Cipher and hash has an explanation so you can gain a lot of practical knowledge about all of them without even using them.

–   Since the developer is updating the app regularly there will be many cool features to come. A great game relevant to cryptography is going to be launched in the future.

Cons of the Application

–    Some users have complained about some spelling mistakes and typos in the app which they find annoying.

–    Although the app has vast information, it does not cover each and every cipher and hash that exist. So users sometimes cannot find what they are looking for and feel disappointed but still there is a lot of information and utility to the app.
