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.

(PS1: I will pay for the pro version only if EDS pro improves Video/Photo browsing experience like the android Gallery app. Mouting is not an option because nowadays root permission is not very common in phones.) (PS2: There is no preview for video files. It only supports preview photos. Since I can not use Gallery app to open videos/photos in EDS container, I hope EDS company really consider adding video preview feature and better gallery support. Thank you very much) ---- I changed 1 star to 5 stars. The reason why I gave 1 star is because it can not open/mount LUKs encrypted USB Drive (Partition). But later I figure out how to use LUKs container image file, that actually works, althought it only supports luks1 (does not support luks2). This is the only program I can find which supports LUKs encryption and works well so I changed the review to 5 stars.
