    I'm not sure if this exists yet but I'd be willing to pay $2, even $5, for it.

    Although the lock screen is useful for keeping unauthorized people out, sometimes a friend wants to check Facebook, look something up, or just play a game but they have a dumb phone.

    There needs to be an app where you can lock certain apps [such as the market (just in case they accidentally buy something), gmail/email (for obvious reasons), or maybe that app that you use when you're lonely and bored (lolz!)]. To enter the app, you could either either a number code or do a pattern like on the lock screen. Apps should also require a password when accessed from the notification bar.

    However, if you're sick of it always asking for your password/pattern, there should be a way to turn it off (like when you're using it and nobody wants to use your phone anymore).

    There's an app for this on a jailbroken iPod/iPhone in Cydia called Lockdown (I have it on my 1st gen iPod).
    Feedback?

    I'm not sure if this is possible. Even if it is, a user can just delete the app from the settings page, so it would only really useful against very young kids or ignorami.

    Sorry to dig up a post from January, but does anyone know if there's an app like this in the market yet?

    Sounds like a pain in the Azz for the user if to access all the apps that you would have to give a code on each app. certainly it can be done though.

    LockMyApps ( Protect App ):eek:

    LockMyApps ( Protect App ) - Cyrket

    LockMyApps Pro (Lock App) protects your Apps, such as Contacts, Dialer, Gmail, Message, etc. It will stop the locked app soon while clicking them.

    Start LockMyApps before your friend uses your phone.
