    It's iPad compatible - but not designed for the iPad specifically - so will only show on your iPad screen in iPhone resolution - but it will work fine.

    Beware of programs that only use "password protection" (like Picture Safe, Folders Pro, etc.). They may be safe from your kid sister, but that's about it. Anybody wanting to see "password protected" pictures in apps just needs to jailbreak the iPhone/Touch/iPad and the raw files are in the clear. Casual privacy and true security are two very different things. You need an app that uses true encryption!

    Very few "privacy" apps utilize strong encryption. Here are two that do. Does anyone know of others?

    My Eyes Only - 256-bit AES encryption

    Private Photos - Blowfish encryption

    Edit: I just want to make clear I am talking about photo apps. There are quite a few high quality apps that use encryption for password management, text, etc. But l really don't know about any other apps besides the two above that handle encryption for photos.

    Edit #2: I wanted to address your concerns about importing photos using the links that some apps provide. If they're using web WiFi connectivity - they are using your local wifi at port 8080 . The link should end with :8080. That is as private and secure as your WiFi settings. If you're using WPA with AES encryption on your router - your local transfers are very secure. If you use WEP (which you shouldn't) the transfers are not so secure.
