    Hi,

    I have heard of hide pod and how you can hide apps and media with it. Is there a similar program that doesn't hide the apps (or media, but I am most interested in apps), but just requires you to enter a password to access them?

    Thanks,
    Sciman

    Ok, thanks. Why is it not possible to design this kind of program?

    Beezy: That will work for media, but I am really interested in having password protected apps.

    Shuffle: Oops. Sorry, that is a really misleading title. I would change it, but I am afraid I don't know how.

    someone told me they can't do this because the firmware doesn't allow it

    How about you make a new category and you name it
    "selfdestruct"
    then hide all your apps in there? ;]
    It will be very tempting to open it but worth a try
