Whether it’s a personal or work device, chances are your BlackBerry contains sensitive information. If you’re protective of this information, you’ve likely already locked your BlackBerry with a password. But sometimes that’s just not enough. Or maybe you just don’t want to input a string every time you unlock your BlackBerry. If you’d like an extra layer of protection, you can check out Stealth Book. It allows you to privatize conversations with any of your contacts. Stealth Book is actually quite like one of our favorite BlackBerry apps, BlackBook. It allows you to hide text messages, emails, and phone logs from specific contacts. In fact, it allows you to hide those contacts as a whole. Everything is stored within the Stealth Book app. How do you hide the app itself, then? The developer, Oswald Designs, came up with an idea. There is actually no icon for the app. Instead it launches when you input a specific key sequence (default is End key four times and then the Back key once). There are different options within the settings menu, so you can open it up with a key sequence that works for you. The biggest perk of Stealth Book is actually the price. You can get it from App World for just 99 cents. That’s a bit cheaper than BlackBook. And, in all honesty, it works just as well if not better. Thanks to Kerri at CrackBerry for the pointer.
