About this app

EDS (Encrypted Data Store) is a virtual disk encryption software for Android which allows you to store your files in an encrypted container. VeraCrypt(R), TrueCrypt(R), LUKS, EncFs, CyberSafe(R) container types are supported.

The program can operate in two modes. You can open a container in EDS or you can attach the file system of a container to the file system of your device (i.e., "mount" the container, requires root access to your device).

Main program features:

* Supports VeraCrypt(R), TrueCrypt(R), LUKS, EncFs, CyberSafe(R) container formats.
* You can create an encrypted Dropbox folder using EncFs.
* Choose among five secure ciphers.
* Cipher combinations are supported. A contatainer can be encrypted using several ciphers at once.
* Encrypt/decrypt any kind of file.
* Hidden containers support.
* Keyfiles support.
* Container mounting is supported (requires root access to your device). You can use any file manager, gallery program or media player to access files inside the mounted container.
* A container can be opened directly from a network share.
* Network shares can be mounted to the file system of your device (requires root access to your device). A network share can be mounted and dismounted automatically depending on the available Wifi connection.
* All the standard file operations supported.
* You can play media files directly from the container.
* You can use a hand-drawn pattern along with a password to get easier access to your container on a device with a touch screen.
* You can setup a database inside the container to store various kinds of information including logins, passwords, credit card pin codes, etc.
* You can use indexed search to quickly find files or database entries inside the container.
* You can synchronize your containers among multiple devices using Dropbox(R).
* You can quickly open a folder (or file) inside a container from the Home screen using the shortcut widget.

It works and enables me to display a VeraCrypt container (not rooted). Using the internal file browser, I can browse the files and play the mp4 files. However, my folders have many hundreds of files in them, so I have to scroll the list of files to access all of them. If I scroll to a mp4 file and play it, when I return to the list of files, the scroll position is lost and I'm back at the top of the list. I can find no way to preserve the scroll position while playing mp4's from a list of up to a 1000 files. That makes this program a PITA to use so I've subtracted several stars. I'm told my tablet can't be rooted so I can't use the rooted features. The external file browser feature does nothing. Will change review to 5 stars if the scroll position is fixed.

Very confusing and poorly designed interface. In order to choose the encryption algorithm while opening a volume, you can't just do so from the password popup -- you need to long-press on the volume in the sidebar and edit the settings. Even when you pick what should be the correct settings and correct password, it can't mount a volume that I know for a fact works. The encryption algorithm selection is bizarre because it lists combinations that aren't available in VeraCrypt (like xts/plain64).

I can't connect to my NAS's NFS or SMB shares on my Samsung Galaxy S9, even though they work on both MacOS and Windows. It's obvious something is working because it connects whereas a bad IP won't, but I can't see any files I put in the directory from other clients and I can't create any files using EDS, much less connect to an encrypted container in the share. The app tells me to go check the error log, but I can't view it only send it, so I can't easily troubleshoot.
