    I have been using TealLock for quite some time now, but it seems to conflict too much with other programs. Can anyone suggest a good security locking application? Encryption, scheduled locking, and quick unlocking are key features.

    Thanks all

    Im just now utilizing the card protection functions in PDA Defense. Id hate for someone to have my voice recordings Works good so far.

    EDIT: to make a 25 meg encrypted partition on your card, it takes 800k of RAM. Even using only 64 bit Blowfish, Audacity cant record uncompressed audio without skips. Compressed audio works OK, and sounds surprisingly good for the tiny file sizes. They are so small that using RAM is probably fine for most people. An encrypted partition is still useful for things like family pictures, documents, etc.

    It does seem somewhat flaky. The first time I went into pTunes to select files, the 5 way was really slow and finally crashed. It hasnt done it since then though, and I am running 3.0 beta of pTunes. :shrugs: Plus, when I unprotected the card (permanantly) it left behind the 800k file with an open attribute, even after a soft reset.

    I still prefer PDA Defense, Im just wondering how stable this card protection is.

    Update:

    The pTunes slowdown was due to the beta, it scans all of the audio files so you can view by artist etc.

    I cant copy/move files from the real card to the virtual card using ZLauncher, get VFS errors. Filez works so maybe its an issue with ZLauncher and multiple cards (not just virtual ones)?

    I have been using Visual Key http://www.viskey.com/ for a while and it works great. I have mine set up so that I only have to tap the picture once - I think multiple taps is overkill. I disabled keyguard so that one tap on the right spot and I'm in. Much faster than typing in a password. If someone tries 3 times unsuccessfully, then they are prompted for the longer keyboard password. I have my image full screen and have enabled the "owner" button, so that an honest person can return it to me if found.

    I especially like the fact that I can create my own image/wallpaper for the screen. I attached a couple that I made (currently using 5.bmp):

    Erik, I think Kapz is looking for something more than visKey since it doesnt do encryption etc.

    Alas, I have disabled card protection. Its inteferes with normal operations too much, plus slows down normal card use a tad. It seemed to currupt my language databases too. I may try that other standalone app that does encrypted virtual drives but probably not.

    The 3 things I wanted to encrypt were voice recording, family pictures, and some documents like my resume. I have accomplished them with these:

    RescoViewer - can encrypt pictures, dont know the algorithm but they arent THAT sensitive.

    Audacity - 2 options here. I can just record to RAM since they are really small, and let PDA Defense protect them. I could buy Audacity Professional since it will encrypt the wav files on the fly. For now I just use RAM.

    Docs-2-Go - it supports standard office encryption, but this is pretty easily hacked. My resume could stay in RAM and let PDA Defense protect it. Maybe I should use an app that can encrypt single files on the card.
