    I've been looking for a reliable app for this and haven't come across one! Also, if you look at the comments in the market of an app like handcent, that is the number one complaint - no password protection!

    I need to not have the first few words of a text message appear in the notification bar, even when the lock pattern screen is on! But I'd still like to receive notifications of received text messages and who they're from. And I'd like to password protect all or at least some contacts/messages. I'm amazed that I can't find anything out there yet for this!

    The next thing after that that I'd like would be a reliable encryption app for text messages!

    If there is already something reliable out there for this, let me know! I've searched the market quite a bit, and while there are some apps out there that claim to do these things, they are outdated and have few if any reviews, and those are mostly really poor.

    Someone that can create this app would do EXTREMELY well!:D

    Has anyone looked at Jabber clients specifically? Jabber put out an encryption protocol extension a while back. A quick Google turned up Jabiru. I'd like to hear what people think about the apps that are out there already.

    rsdroid = tiger woods?!?!? ((o_O))

    Just kidding, yes. This would be a useful app. I've heard murmurings for a way to pwd-protect texts and what not.

    Estrongs Ltd do an application called ES Security Manager which protects applications with a password. It says it can do the message application.

    You should go to www.secondphoneapps.com to view their 16 apps that not only give you a decoy icon but also password protect everything. The concept is a decoy app that does not work but is a great cover for hidden text messaging. The free version gives you one contact and the paid version gives you 5 contacts. You can also customize each contact with notifications. In the Android Market, search Hide My text icon or Hide my text. Best of luck.

    the app ES Security Manager will let you pick on what to lock
    the app lock will also let you pick on what to lock
    they are free, but you must have a password to unlock.
