Axcrypt Comments

Works well, but lacks cross platform

Positive Comment by Thelle
about Axcrypt and Mono May 2013

AxCrypt works well on Windows, but it uses it's own file format which is only officially supported on windows. I've found a early mac port of AxCrypt (https://bitbucket.org/slamti/axcrypt-net/downloads) which I found to work great as long you have Small Mono iconMono installed.
