Want to send a text message without prying eyes getting a peep at it? There's now an app for that: Text Fortress. The app encrypts messages and locks 'em up so that they are only visible by you and the person for who they're intended. 

With Text Fortress, the user has the option to secretly store and send messages by either email, text, or notes. After opening the app and typing your message, you protect it with a password, then choose how you would like for it to be delivered. The corresponding app will then open with a link to the secret message. 

The recipient can only view the message if they input a password.

Text Fortress is available now from the Apple App Store for $.99. You can check out the demo of how it works above.
