    Here I go starting my post with the obligitory

    "my iPhone had".... an application called LockDown. Anyone that had an iPhone with Cydia probably heard of it.

    It's a small app that allows you to password lock specific applications. So you WOULDNT have to lock the entire screen (which means hitting 911 from time to time and just general frustration when streaming music etc)...


    The app was simple, obviously a real hacker could hack the phone and bypass it. But for the average user it did the job. You don't want your wife/gf checking your text messages, lockdown. You don't want anyone reading your email, lockdown. It was application specific lock. You chose a password, then you checked each app you wanted locked down.

    Pretty simple and would make my life a lot easier. Should be fairly simple. But isn't that what all non-programmers say?

    PalmOS had apps like this too, as well as a way to lock whole device, for kid-friendliness. Worthwhile.

    This might work if background apps can control any applications that load up and are active cards by setting a front up to be the top card and pushing the app under it, but that's all I could come up to make it happen. I might take a stab at this as soon as my first app is completed.


    So long as nobody has done it.

    I would love this. If they can make it deeper in the photo app, then that would be awesome too. I would love to lock certain folders (without hiding them) in the Photos app.

    It'd be easy enough to do by making a shortcut application with dupped icons. For ex. The fake email icon actually launches the shortcut app, requests the password and then passes the request to the real email app. The password app closes itself after the email app has loaded.

    With webOS more has to be done than hiding the real icon: You'd also have to hide the app from Universal Search. That could be as simple as obfuscating the app name, leaving the app ID alone of course.

    The PalmOS method of listening in and intercepting the OS should be avoided for as long as possible, if not forever. That was one of PalmOS's biggest sources of instability and drag.

    Actually you'd need a $3,500 MS based piece of equipment. Leave your technopolitics in "off topic" at least.

    Yeah. If I had a guvmint approved secure Pre, maybe I wouldn't have to carry around this and a locked down blackberry.
