I haven't tried it yet, but KYMS in the App Store looks interesting.

Hi Lon... i've installed KYMS, it's very simple and well done! try it!​
it seems like a standard calculator but entering your password and tapping on "=" you will access a private area where you can archive photos and videos! a great idea... thanks for your tips!​

Camera plus Pro has a private option that I'd password protected. They just pushed out an update (4.0) that looks great. Just another option for you.

The icon on the store is different from the one on your phone...on the iPhone it's a simple calculator this is the PLUS!

If one were to jailbreak their iDevice they could install PhotoAlbums+ and create password protected albums.

Edit: It seems the OP has found a sound stock solution. Never mind :oops:

Well, in that case you could use either Locktopus or Lockdown Pro and lock the photo album. The thing that strikes me about this one is that no one sees a locked folder and doesn't know you are protecting anything.

I just read the app description and the clincher is that the calculator actually works. Nice touch! Now if only I had some pics worthy of hiding and someone to hide them from.
