hwHashes - MD5 & SHA1


This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Generate MD5 and SHA1 hashes.
The hashes will be generated base on UTF-8 encoding of your inputted string.

I'm making this (extremely) simple application because I saw a MD5 application selling on AppStore. This kind of app shouldn't cost anything therefore hwHashes is free.

I don't think this can be useful most the time, but one day you may need it, who knows?

Future version may include functionality of querying online MD5 dictionary-attack databases.

What's New in Version 1.1

Added a copy button to copy the hash into the pasteboard.

Here is a good use case for hashes...

You go to a site that wants you to answer a 'secret question'. Because the questions tend to be personal, they can be valuable to hackers. Rather than enter your mother's maiden name, hash it with this program, and use it instead. Since hashes are not reversable, you aren't giving them useful information, but at the same time are providing an easily reproducable string for use in password recovery.
One suggestion I would make for this particular program would be to put spaces or dashes between each 4 characters so they can be more easily read.

Exactly what I needed (really!)

Simple app does exactly what it says it does. You never know when you need to calculate an SHA-1 hash and you don't have a shell window near by.

Works good, but have potential to improve

Works as advertised, but lacks alternate keyboards - not a big disappointment, but still.
