rot13 app for webOS

rot13 is a simplistic substitution cipher primarily used on the Internet to “hide” spoilers, offensive text, puzzle solutions, etc. from casual reading. It was wildly popular in the age of Usenet (the 1980s and 1990s) and I’m surprised it’s not wildly popular on Twitter.

rot13 encryption works as follows: rotate each letter 13 places forward (or backward) in the English alphabet. That’s it. A becomes N, B becomes O, etc. Decryption works exactly the same way.

This page is about the webOS app. It works as follows: type in some text; tap the “rot13” button.

How To Get It

rot13 is available on Palm’s webOS App Catalog.
