    I'm looking for an App where I can put pictures/videos on my iphone but would like to be password protected. I don't want to keep the pictures within in the same app that comes with the phone. I use to have something like this on my 3gs, but can't remember the name.

    SwapCameraRoll (or something like that) gives you a second camera roll to store naughty pictures.

    Not unless you put a password on the photo app.

    Hmm - Didn't know I could put a password on the actual app.

    Welp, you'd have to get a Cydia app such as LockDown or Locktopus to put passwords on your apps.

    I use to have a program called mAdvLock that worked great to password protect things. Not sure if it has been updated for 4.0.

    A word of warning to the OP about password protecting pictures. You cannot simply just lock the Photos part because you can still access them through the camera app.

    i didn't like swapcameraroll. you really need to pay attention on what roll you are, almost lost some pictures and videos.

    i use ifile. i created a new directory where i could copy/cut off the camera roll directory. you'll still be able to view pics and play vids from ifile. if i want to upload them to my pc, i use winscp retrieve them.
