App Locking is Here: iOS6 Guided Access

From Apple: See link here for more info
"Guided Access helps students with disabilities such as autism remain on task and focused on content. It allows a parent, teacher, or administrator to limit an iOS device to one app by disabling the Home button, as well as restrict touch input on certain areas of the screen. "

To Enable the Guided Access:
  • Launch Settings, then tap on General.
  • Scroll down and tap on Accessibility, then scroll again to the Learning section.
  • Tap on Guided Access, and toggle it to ON.
  • Tap on Set Passcode to require a code to get out of Guided Access mode.
  • When in the app you want to use with Guided Access, for some children with an ASD this could be their AAC app like Proloquo2go, triple-click the Home button to bring up the Guided Access option.
  • Tap Options to set the Hardware buttons to OFF, and toggle Touch or Motion controls.
  •  Triple click the Home button to disable Guided Access and enter your password if you set one up.
