iProtect is a recently released security application for your iPhone or iPod Touch. It allows you to password protect applications, lock your SIM, disable the ability to move icons around on the SpringBoard, disable the application to delete application off the SprigBoard and the ability to disable the Home Button double-tap.
When you first open the application, you will need to enter a password and a security word. Once you are in the application, you can choose to lock All Applications, Unlock All Applications or choose to lock specific applications. You can lock both App Store and Cydia apps.
Once an app is locked, when you tap on the app on the SpringBoard, you will be required to enter a password in order to open the application.
The downfall with this application is that many of the options are not available unless you purchase the application. You are unable to use the SIM lock feature, the Disable Icon Moving feature, the Disable App Deleting feature and you are not able to lock all the important apps (App Store, Cydia, Mail, Phone, Messages) without purchasing the app for $8.99 USD.
Honestly, I’m not sure why you would purchase this app when you can use Lockdown for free. The only difference is that iProtect allows you to lock your SIM… though, I’m not sure it is worth $8.99. You can get iProtect via the BigBoss source.
