Hi There,
I am looking for an App which I can lock or password protected some of my Apps from my iPad e.g. photos etc.
Any advise?

Because of the way the iPad's operating system, iOS, works it is not possible for one app to 'lock' another in the way that you want. An app can password protect its own files or 'lock' them, but it cannot do this to another apps's files. Apple did this to isolate or 'sandbox' apps from one another in order to prevent any possibility of virus infection since any virus would be unable to infect or affect any other app.

This feature would be great to have in iOS though. Some apps have it by default, i.e. financial apps.

Not certain if this app would prove useful, but I use Stash which allows me to password protect certain files on my iPad away from tiny fingers.

Sadly it doesn't cover apps but does read a wide range of docs and photos etc..
