    Lockdown is an app available in Cydia that allows you to passcode lock individual apps. Primarily for people who just want to lock data-sensitive apps like Bank apps, photos, SMS or email.

    I guess my only question is why only certain apps rather than just passcode lock your entire phone.

    Which is what a passcode lock on the phone itself does?? It's either that or when you let someone borrow it you don't let them walk away with it.

    Anyhow, I just wouldn't pay for it. YMMV.

    I guess to each his own. I don't have family/friends that I would worry about like that.

    Anyhow, thanks for the info.

    Precisely. Thanks for the heads-up, OP.

    I don't need people looking at half-naked pictures of my girlfriend. :rolleyes:

    seems like a pornography/ questionable text message issue.

    The phone is new, I'm sure a lot of people just want to play with it, so this program is probably for those people that want to show people their phones, but also hide questionable material.

    Psh, I hate people touching my phone, personally, but so many people ask to see it, I don't want to seem like I'm all snooty like iPad owners (J/kkkk.) Seriously though. Everyone asks to play with it and I do have questionable pictures and definitely questionable texts, so it's not really their business but I know they'd "read on" if I wasn't there to put a foot on it.

    When you have friends, they ask to play with your iPhone 4 for the games/functionality.

    I currently use iProtect and love password lock for individual apps. Apps where I'm automatically logged in like ebay, facebook, twitter, idisk, etc.. Some don't have friends/family who use their phone (to use certain apps) but for others who do, works really well.

    I don't see said Pro version that's iOS 4 compatible in the standard cydia repo and/or the cydia store. Which repo is it under? All I see is version 6.3.3, that is NOT iOS 4 compatible, available for download.

    Ooops, it's late. I must have misread the subject as being that it was like on sale for $1.99 for the next 2 weeks. ugh, my bad.

    Those of you who lock your photos, do you also lock your camera? Remember people can get to your photos if they open the camera app, too...or even SMS or mail. Lots of backdoors to get to the photos. ;)

    Help with a Stupid Quesiton

    can you tell me by chance if this will work or does it work now with the iPad.. I am running both iPhone 4's and my 2 iPad's with Jailbreak and love it and dont plan on updating to the new one because I want to keep them jailbroken.. BUT I love... LOVE lockdown and hope that it will work with both the iPad and the iPhone 4 soon.. I personally think this is one of the best programs out there.. If you could just let me know if it will or does that would be great.. thanks everyone

    Thanks

    When you know how to say "no," that's not an issue.

    One feature I like about Locktopus is being able to lock apps from the springboard. With Lockdown you have to open the app and choose what you want to lock. At the end of the day they both do the same thing so it's really a matter of preference.

    Locktopus has the keyboard pop up instead on the number key pad, so im using iProtect

    Locktopus, iProtect, and LockDown all have the same effect. They all lock your photos/email/contacts equally well--and that is subpar because they only lock the app itself and not the API that leads to the service. For instance, I could go to one of my photo editing apps and open the camera roll from there, or use the "Tell a friend" thing in an app and the email will open.

    They all work the same, I've used them all. Except for Locktopus is different in that you can lock the apps directly in the SpringBoard in wiggly mode by touching the bottom left of the app. I've already lost interest in LockDown Pro because iProtect does the same thing and I found a way to get the latest version for free.

    How about I'm not a jerk and I like to let my friends and family enjoy the plethora of games and cool apps on my iPhone 4? There are two options from your perspective, be socially inept and guard your iPhone like it's the Coca-Cola formula or be the person who lets their friends use their awesome iPhone.
