Krypto Notes Desktop Companion

Secure Data Synchronization between Krypto Notes mobile app and desktop


October 2014

KryptoNotes will stop working if your device is upgraded to BlackBerry® 10 OS version 10.3.1 since Adobe AIR will no longer be supported as a technology platform on BlackBerry 10 smartphones.
Unfortunately there is no data migration path provided by BlackBerry so we are unable to provide updated listing using Android build without users losing their data. Krypto Notes for BlackBerry 10 will be discontinued in the near future!
Do not buy this application for your BB10 device if you are planning to upgrade to version 10.3.1 of BB10 OS. If you are already using Krypto Notes on a BB10 device, you will need to use the Desktop Companion to make a backup of your data and consider moving to a different app.

If you are comfortable with side-loading Android APK, contact us and we will provide you with an Android version for your private use. Desktop Sync will be a bit more complicated but you will be able to continue using Krypto Notes!

Desktop Companion includes a simple wizard that will guide your along to setup the connection to your mobile device.
