    Alright I'm trying to find an app to hide private photos and if possible videos(not required though) with a password. No not porn, just private pics that some ppl who I let play around with my iPhone shouldn't be seeing. Aside from hiding pictures, I need it to be able to get the photos into the app directly from the iPhones photo album without using iTunes. Because for some reason my photos don't sync with iTunes correctly. Never been able to figure out why though (maybe bcuz I'm still running 10.4.11). So far the only apps I've found that i am sure fit my requirement are picture safe or video safe by collect3. Anyone have any opinions??
    Thx for the help.

    I've tried four picture lock apps, Picture Safe is definitely the best. Supports multiple folders, send to other folder, send back to Photo app, and organize folder and pic order. The snoop stopper provides some dummy pics (you have to set the pics) so that after a certain number of incorrect passcode attempts, it'll pretend the correct password has been entered. It also has a quick hide feature. Double tap the screen to bring up a dummy pic of your choosing.

    Yes. I use video safe, which is the same software just with video support as well as picture. it's a very neat program!

    I tried that app out... The only thing I don't like is that you have to import the pictures through FTP or HTML... Is this because Apple has the USB cable locked down for media importing or something?

    You can transfer them from the camera roll though.

    Third party apps can't access the USB cable, not sure why Apple decided on that, those of us without WiFi on our computers can't make full use of a lot of apps.

    There is the Made for iPod Program (which includes the iPhone), but from what I've heard....it's a very large (six figure) upfront investment.
