Secret offers fast and true DES encryption for
Newton Notes. As long as you never forget your encryption password, you'll love this app.
After installing you will find a little "lock" button in your Notes
options bar. In addition the action picker will be extended by 'Protect' and 'Unprotect'.
These are present only if the selected note is unlocked. The lock in the button line
shows the state of the notes application. If it is locked, the notes marked with 'Protect'
are not available. To open the Note, simply tap on the lock button and enter your
password. This is a 30 day demo. The latest version fixed an empty strings as passwords
problem. Secret may also perform OwnerInfo encryption. Credit: Softwarebüro
