somehow this might be useful…if i have to stretch too many creative brain cells to find an application…it probably won’t be something i get.

this would be kinda cool to have but there is no way in hell i would pay $30 to do this. I will be surprised if anyone pays for this.

Try coming up with your own code to use to keep such data on your iPod if you don’t have it memorized.  It’s cheaper and it will work if you do it right.

Umm.. just how safe is this? I’m not sure I want to have this information on my iPod. What if it gets stolen?

Best use iPod for it’s real purpose, enjoy music, not some kinda encrypted data storage… and agreed with Squibbles, nothing beats the anxiety of getting iPod stolen with all important data inside even if the stuff is encrypted….

why not just use a compression program (like zip) to encrypt the files?
