How can we improve Boxer for iOS?

PGP encyption support

Boxer should have GPG/PGP encryption support. There's no ios mail app that does this.

    On Android, you can make the app register to apg.
    It would be great!
    Fully integrated gpg is fine to me too.

    I have to encrypt my mail for work, if you could include the functionality, it would be very much appreciated.

    Yes, I do use PGP heavily and would more than appreciate it. And as previously mentioned, you would be the first company ever to integrate this on iOS- you would get a lot of press for sure, but also expect a lot of scrutiny if it comes to reviewability/trust of your implementation. And I WOULD pay to get finally a workimg email program... Secure the secret key(s) with the touch ID in order to not having to type/paste it in all the time.

    S/MIME support please. Only the stock ios mail app offers this. I refuse to use any 3rd party email app until they support signing and encrypting email.

    I definitely want this. It's not very useful to write and sign/encrypt mail in one program and send it with another one. I would pay for this feature in boxer.

    PGP support would be great. I send/receive PGP encrypted email from my desktop daily, and would find it very convenient to be able to do the same on my phone.

    I concur here, it should have both OpenPGP support AND s/mime support. Also during their implementation there should be some sort of settings menu from within the email composition window that allows the user to toggle which of these is enabled/disabled, in addition to default options available for these. Example: I have s/mime signatures set to automagically sign every email if a valid certificate is available. Then from within the email composition window there should be a toggle to disable the signature for that occurrence or to add encryption for an encrypt & sign message. Thanks! Keep up the good work.

    That would be nice. I already have OpenPGP encryption on my desktop system and that feature for boxer would close a gap and prohibit problems with email recipients.
