Restricting app use with Guided Access

Available only on the iPad, the Guided Access setting limits users to just the current running app, which is great for a kiosk or as a form of basic parental control when you hand over an iPad to your kid. (Triple-click the Home button to enter Guided Access mode; triple-click it again and enter a password to exit.)
