Here’s the Kid Mode for iOS devices that I mentioned earlier

In my  recent How to prevent your child from making in-app purchases on your iPad article, I mentioned that Apple should make it possible to restrict access to only certain apps for kids.  Little did I know that there was already a way to lock a user into only a single app.  Combine this feature with blocking in-app purchases, and you won’t have to worry that your young child will run up a large bill or access (or delete) apps he shouldn’t be using.  Back in September 2012, OS X Daily told us how to Enable “Kid Mode” on iPad, iPhone or  iPod touch with Guided Access in iOS.  I’m not going to copy their information here; you can read it for yourself at the link.  Then combine their information with the info about restricting in-app purchases at the Gadgeteer link above, and you’ll feel much more secure about letting your kids play on your iOS device.
