    You may not want to purchase this $14.99 application just yet. I know of an integrated, far less clunky extension that's being completed as we speak that'll work for both iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. It's not out yet though.

    Lockdown is a jailbroken app, though you'll need to check to see if it'll work with the iPhone.

    I may be biased, but check out Locktopus. (what spoonforknife was referring to)

    I'll second Locktopus - I saw an iPad that was using it and it is AWESOME. It puts a little LOCK/UNLOCK icon on the bottom left of the app icon when the icons are 'wiggling' (like when you delete an app). You can lock/unlock an app just by touching the lock icon!

    Of course, you setup a password ahead of time to launch the locked apps...

    Absolutely brilliant...
