If you want to send a sms that only someone knowing a password for it can understand, or just need to encrypt a conversation to hide it for prying eyes, now there is a easy way for that on a iphone. With TXTcrypt just enter your message and a password for it, now the encrypted message can only be decoded with that password, just tell it to someone, and send them message encrypted with it, they can use TXTcrypt to decode it.
TXTcrypt works with any character set being unicode compliant, the encryption used is as strong as encryption export regulations allow, not military grade but namely RC4 with keys as big as 64bit depending on the length of your password as such providing a decent amount of security.
