[prMac.com] Stockholm, Sweden - Coding Turtle is pleased to announce Scrambler 1.0, a simple encryption app for the Mac. Scrambler resides in the menu bar.
To encrypt a file with Scrambler, users drag the file on Scrambler's menu bar icon and type in a password via a small and non-intrusive password window. The result is an encrypted file, to which Scrambler gives (appropriately enough) the extension ".scrambled".
To decrypt, users drag the encrypted file (the ".scrambled" file) back on Scrambler's menu bar icon and type in the same password. The result is, of course, the original file.
* Users can also drag folders, or a collection of files and folders, on Scrambler - they will be encrypted into a single encrypted file.
* Scrambler is meant for encrypting small to medium-sized files, and has a limit of encrypting up to 250 MB at a time. This is believed by the developer to be more than enough for the vast majority of Scrambler's users, but will be addressed in the future if there is enough demand.
* Uses industry-standard tar archiving and gzip compression
* Uses secure industry-standard AES-256 encryption
* Preserves Mac OS X metadata of files, including extended attributes
Expected in Future Versions:
* Password strength indicator
* Other features as per user requests
