RedPhone makes private communication simple. Free, world-wide, end-to-end encryption for your calls, securing your conversations so that nobody can listen in. This handy app lets you make encrypted calls over the developer’s secure VoIP network to other TextSecure users. I particularly like that it works with your existing dialer and phone number, alerting you when another RedPhone user is on the line and the call can be encrypted. If all those PRISM and NSA headlines have you worried, just give this app a try.

Wickr Secret Messenger

Pinterest is like a social network of stuff, a place to “pin” things that interest you on themed boards or more easily to a visual bookmarking tool.
