Lightbulb Software Idea

Please Login to Remove!

If anybody out there knows how to code softwares for blackberry I have an idea. I have not found this software so far.
We can lock the entire blackberry device but not individual applications.

A software should be designed whereby the user can password protect specific files, folders, inbox, facebook, IM's or any applications of their choice.
This would be very useful as very often people tend to use the phone and it is not easy to monitor what they are doing with your phone. It might also be useful when the device is lying idle.

The software should have a main console whereby we can select all the applications etc we want to lock and with they help of one key all softwares can be locked/unlocked. User should also be able to set an auto password after x number of idle minutes. Maybe we can set different passwords for different apps.

If somebody out there is listening maybe you can develop something along these lines. This sort of software is in demand!

I am a software engineer and also a BB newb ... I have been looking at their API and perhaps after I become more familiar with it (only writing baby apps for it atm) I may take a crack at this in my spare time.

The API, though, is let's just say .... colorful!
