    I know but anyways I have a few adult social apps that I would like to keep discreet from my girlfriend is there a app that can block another or hide it I'm tired of deleting and then re installing every time I want to use it thanks, I know but I'm sure she is doing the same thing oh well.I don't care if it's a iPhone or iPad app.

    Parental Controls allows you to hide apps with a certain rating. Go to Settings -> General -> Restrictions, enable Restrictions, then you can hide apps with a rating of 17+ or above. That will most likely hide the apps you want hidden. Note, though, that it may also hide apps you don't want hidden - many apps with a built-in web browser are listed as 17+ because they *could* be used to look at porn. There's no way to hide specific apps.

    If you do this, please ensure that the irony of using Parental Controls to hide "adult social apps" is not lost on you.

    I hide the Facebook app on my iPhone using the Dock option in SBSettings. Then I guess you could change the way SBSettings is activated so that it doesn't come up as easily. It's not perfect but it's good enough that it's away from view.
