    Would like to love this, but I've never seen a file encryption program with no option to decrypt. Either this is horribly ill designed, either by omission or obfuscation, or I am ludicrously dumb.

    Linked google drive and Microsoft onedrive very easily. Big plus there. I'll update when I try other cloud services.

    Not what I expected from Sophos. Unintuitive user interface. Does not seem to download from cloud to local storage (wants to open every time, even if there is no app). Does not do seamless encryption when storing to the cloud. It seems you have to encrypt locally then upload. Cannot see the point of this app.

    Possibly the longest and most unintelligible EULA in Play Store. I am used to reading this stuff but this defeated me. Could not accept a contract that appears to contain obligations to pay unspecified amounts under unclear circumstances. I'm sure it's innocuous but your lawyer needs shaking by the neck. Gave up & uninstalled.
