App for That: How to have free, password-protected messaging with Android and Blackberry

There are hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps for just about everything -- so how come the one you need, the one you know just has to be there, is so hard to find? Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, Jo asks:

I'm searching for a cross-platform Instant Messaging app that can employ a passcode. I need to be able to communicate with a Blackberry user. And, I'd like to be able to passcode lock just that IM app, without passcode protecting my full phone. Any ideas?

To see what we found for Jo, follow along after the break!
