    OK

    I am looking for a couple types of apps

    1) On my Blackberry there is a program Password Keeper. In this program I have to enter my password to get in and then it has it set up with forms for keeping account #'s, passwords etc. Is there anything simple and straight forward like this for the IPad??

    2) Is there some sort of simple privacy program I can run which would hide apps if I wanted, keep my bookmarks and browsing history private?

    Thank you!

    1password is my favourite totally secured. Though does not hide apps

    I don't use any, and don't know.... You might try doing a search for "security" on the app store.....

    Also try search for password manager, perhaps the same company has a version for the iPhone/iPad .....

    1password is quite pricey. Why?
    What makes it so good?

    I looked at it and am considering it but it is 3x as much as the other options so I'd like to hear why you picked it and all

    Thank you!

    I am going to do some more research on it in the morning but I think I will end up taking your advice :)

    another option that syncs both ways is ewallet. I use it. Not increadibly cheap, but in the same range as 1password.

    I use 1Password and SplashID simultaneously on my Mac. Both have apps for the iPad (& iPhone) and sync with the desktop client. But I've used SplashID longer and will say I like it better for a couple of key reasons:
    - 1Password, while providing a lot of integration on the Mac side with my browser, will often get fields wrong when autosaving a new record (like, it will confuse the sign-up email with the login name and I will have to manually go in to correct the login data when I go back to the site the next time).
    - SplashID has more flexibility with being able to define fields globally and on a per-record basis. Naming fields makes the data easier to read later.

    1Password gets a huge amount of favorable press but I've found SplashID to be rock-solid, friendly, and flexible. Like I said, I use both but because I always put a new registration into SplashID manually, I know it's accurate whereas 1Password has betrayed me several times and I've had to go back in later and correct some fields that it got wrong.

    I use Ascendo Data Vault and it's excellent. I've got an iPad and iPhone so I like that the fact that I didn't have to pay for 2 copies. Syncing through my Mac works like a charm.

    I haven't seen anything that will hide apps.
