I don't get your software. I work with PGP all day long in Windows... I DL'd this to run on my Mac so that I could simply view the key of a certain PGP file. But the software is so worthless... no command line, horrible (i.e. lack of) documentation, the online documentation sucks, no application icon, no toolbar... how the F do I use the program? It sucks to spend time downloading and installing a program only to waste time finding out that it's not even usable.

    GPGTools includes everything you need to manage your GPG keys, sign text, encrypt text, send signed mails, send encrypted mails and more.
    It also, of course, includes the whole gpg command line suite.

    You can simply access it using:

    gpg2 command

    For example

    gpg2 --verify file

    It's true our documentation still sucks, lots of features are still missing (a GUI for what you named above) but consider, we're a team of 4 people, all the tools are free, so we can only spend very limited time on this project, since we have to earn a living some other way.

    I hope this clarifies things a little
