Mininigma is a complete simulator of an Enigma Machine for your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch.

As of version 4.0, Mininigma also includes a Custom Keyboard Extension (iOS 8.0 and newer), to use it from any app on your device, for instance, sending a mail, messaging, etc.

Basically, Enigma was a cipher machine used by the Germans during World War II for the encryption and decryption of secret messages. It looked like an old typewriter with some extra features.

Being fully compatible with the real Enigma means you can also use Mininigma to decode any of the original messages which can be found on Internet.

You can also generate a machine configuration based on a keyword or keyphrase. That means youll only have to share that keyword to send a message!!

Mininigma can accurately simulate different types of machines: The Enigma I, M3 and M4, Railway, G-312, or Swiss-K, with some others coming in the future. You can read more about these, as always, on the Wikipedia :)

You can actually select between the different machine types and setup them as you would with a real one: choose rotors, configure them, or use a plugboard to switch letters. All at the tip of your finger.

Mininigma supports Copy/Paste to allow you to interact with any other application on your device. You can even copy/paste machine configurations in an encryptable string :)

Pros and cons of Mininigma: Enigma Simulator app for iPhone and iPad

Mininigma: Enigma Simulator app good for

Every Enigma machines are simulated. UI is well done, good job!
Superbe simulation très exacte. Tous les bugs signalés ont été corrigés. Testé sur iPad 2 Wifi 64 Go. Superb very accurate simulation. All reported bugs have been fixed. Tested on iPad 2 Wifi 64GB.
This is very well done. It actually looks like the real thing. I also like the fact that it simulates the different versions of the enigma. The only issue Ive had is that dials on top are a little finicky. Other than that Im very impressed. This is a great app for anyone interested in WW2 or cryptography. Well done.
Very well done.Simulates the machines quite well and has nice features
The dial settings are a little finicky. Apart from that, so far as I can tell, really, really good. Go ahead: try it against a known historical cryptogram - works for me! So far as I can tell, so far the real thing! 2012-09-27 And nitty-gritty.
