    Lock the phone?

    Go to launcher, then choose screen and lock, then put a pin passcode on your pre

    that doesnt solve the fundamental problem of not being able to lock certain apps. your solution works(i use it all the time) but it would be nice to just lock the things i need, i.e., photos and messaging, instead of the entire phone. Im sure this will come as an app solution thru the app catalog or homebrew, but for now, i need something like this, hell- my old motorola even had this feature

    I would LOVE an app that did this. I pull out my phone and check it 40-50 times a day. If I lock the entire phone I would have to enter in my PIN every single time. That's 18,000 unlocks a year I would have to do just to avoid the chance that somebody might see a picture that they shouldn't. If I could just lock the picture album, it would be SOOOOOOOOOOO much easier and more convenient.

    I am currently working through some ideas for such a program. I'm thinking of locking entire directories with some kind of encryption (PGP) that requires a key to unlock.

    I'd buy it!


    My ideal vision for a locking app would work like this:

    You open the app and it displays a list of every app and directory on the phone. You just check the ones you want locked (like you can check stuff off in the "Tasks" app). For Instance, I open the app and place a check next to:

    Email
    Doc View
    My Vacation Pics (A directory I created for my vacation photos)


    Then I close the app and whenever I click on the email or doc view icons, it asks me for my password. Similarly, I can use the Pictures app without a password, but if I tried to view any picture in the "My Vacation Pics" directory, it would ask me for my password before continuing.

    If I ever wanted to remove the password on that picture directory, I just open up the app and uncheck the box next to it.

    yup, this would be a help. Not just for the naked midget fireman pics I cherish so much, but I also have quite a collection of work stuff that I would like to lock up, rather than entire phone...

    I'd shell out some dough for it...

    I'd buy it too. I'm looking for something to encryption email and possibly downloaded attachments.

    Keep us updated! Thanks.

    There was another thread similar to this that went into the complexities of hiding photos and stuff in the media partition - I assume that would be most easily implementable within the program in questions anyway - but perhaps a good first step would be to simply hide the launcher icon? There's a tweak which does it for the Nascar app - but the question is, can you still launch it, say, through typing it with the Universal Search? Not a perfect solution, I guess...

    I think this would be a great first step. It would not prevent somebody who was very familiar with the Pre from accessing the photo app, but it would prevent somebody who is just trying out or playing with your phone, which I believe, is the majority of the concern with this issue. The only other problem is that the photo app can also be accessed by launching the camera app and tapping on the photo button. If somebody asked to play around with your phone, there is a very good possibility they will launch the camera app....
