While we recently covered a jailbreak app called Private Area that did the same thing, it simply pales in comparison to the one this post is about: iDiscrete.
iDiscrete operates on a simple principle: "To securely store your private content (videos, images, et al.) on the iPhone, and do so in a 100% discreet way".
Instead of just being an app that saves certain files locked by a password, iDiscrete goes the the extra mile to secure private content. Instead of asking for a password, you have to tap in a secret “touch sequence” during a loading screen; if the password fails, a text editor open ups which ensures no one gets suspicious.
You can also change the icon and its name. Not only that, you can hide it as one those built-in Apple apps you don’t use (Stocks, anyone?).
Truly discreet, I must say. The chances of someone showing a password locked app now are right next to zero with this ‘un.
You will, of course, need to have a jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch to install it. Follow our step by step guide to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with Limera1n or GreenPois0n if you haven’t already.
