Cryptnos for Android 1.2.7 Released

July 22nd, 2011 | Comment?

Folks, Cryptnos for Android 1.2.7 has just been released. It is now available for download here and on the Google Code site, and folks should be seeing it in the Android Market very soon.

This isn’t a very important update for most folks, and frankly if you already have Cryptnos installed and it’s working fine, you don’t really need to update. This is mostly a fix for a quirk in the Android Market that was filtering Cryptnos out of the list of available apps when it really shouldn’t have been. Android assumes that a touch screen is required for all apps unless you explicitly say otherwise. Cryptnos has always been usable and navigable without a touch screen, assuming you have a trackball, D-pad, or some other device to scroll through the on-screen controls. However, because we didn’t explicitly go into the application manifest and declare that the touch screen wasn’t required, the Market assumed it was and filtered out of the list. Thanks to this change, Cryptnos is now compatible with at least 532 different Android-based devices (that Google knows about).
