The user interface is ANYTHING but intuitive. The "Help" is basically useless. If you're willing to spent LOTS of time figuring how it works, it's pretty useful. I greatly prefer the Windows version of VeraCrypt - its far more intuitive - but this actually gets the same job done, even if it's a bit more cumbersome. A two-page ddescription of how to add files to an existing container would be a MAJOR improvement. It seems to present only a subset of available apps to open container files .

As far as i can tell, contrary to all of the negative reviews, this app does exactly what it states it will do. As others have mentioned the interface is somewhat clunky and non-intuitive, it probably helps that I have a strong Unix/Linux background in working with encryption systems. The only thing that I see that is really a flaw is that there is no cut/paste (recursive move) facility, there is only copy/paste functionality, which severely limits usability.

This works great and i believe it is true and powerful encryption. You make it as big or small as you want. Multiple encrypted boxes too. Have to play w the program for a while to get good at it and being computer proficient helps. To user: A Google User. Your wrong, there is cut/ paste functionality. After you choose the copy icon to cut or past a file, go to containers or to your device internal sd card (whichever you were not just in, copying from), clipboard icon to copy, scissor is to cut.
