Password Protect your Media and Applications on the iPhone! [Free License Giveaway]
How many times had this thought struck your mind – ‘Gosh, I wish I could hide these videos from my family/friends!’ Then comes this – ‘iSteamy is really hot but I don’t want my wife/children to know about this steamy adventure!’
All your questions are now answered, thanks to the developers at HidePod. They have just finished Apple’s unfinished business of protecting your ‘Stuff’! The next time someone (in my case – my professors, family members…) asks your iPhone for a quick look – you can innocently hand it over despite not so innocent stuff hiding back there!
We all know about Poof, an application for hiding your applications but HidePod dives in with password protection feature and even letting you hide the HidePod application behind the regular/normal looking Calculator icon!
I can assure you that it is so difficult for anyone to hack into your protected stuff. I myself had a tough time using the app initially, and you can just imagine how hard it will be for someone to get to the hidden videos/apps – thanks to the added layers of protection (password, and hiding the application itself!).
Why wait, you definitely stand a chance to win a license.
Hidepod also offers free upgrades to AppStore license if approved to be released by Apple. All you have to do is drop a comment/few words about this blog and how it can be improved. Lots of licenses up for grabs! Hurry, offer expires June 25.
Some insider info from the developer team at HidePod. The future of the app and a possible picture integration to this wonderful app are detailed.
We’d like to wait until we release the picture version which will be available
very shortly. (we’ve emulated the picture viewer app and are working through a memory bug .. right now we can flip through about 130 images or so before we experience a memory problem)
We should have this tracked down shortly.
Regarding the Appstore release.
We will try to get it on the Appstore (if we can)
Anyone who purchased our previous version would get reimbursed when they get the 2.0 on appstore.
We may however have to release it on the unlocked version of the iphone 2.0.
(In that case the existing registration keys would work)
The reason for this is… we tie into the iTunes database to access the movie file listing.. Apple is preventing this in the current iteration of the Developer kit.
An advantage of releasing it on the open developer platform is we would have access to those libraries… We could also modify the program so that movies and pictures could be accessed from other sources. We could set it up so that you could directly upload picture files, download movie trailers etc.
If we use the AppStore we may be restricted to funnel all content through iTunes
which may restrict content and access to content.
