    Hi, is there any application in the apple store that allow us to close the screen (similar as pressing the close button on top of the iphone) but after a certain amount of time (like in 30 mins, close the screen)

    Thanks

    What about the already built in option of auto-lock in settings?

    Thanks for your reply. I was aware of this functionality but I'm looking for an app that will close the iphone no matter what I'm doing on the phone

    So you want it to close on you even if you are doing something?

    The short version is no, without a jailbreak apple won't allow an app to shut off the screen... especially if that app is not running in the foreground. If you jailbreak then this is possible, but I'm not aware of any apps that do this.

    Are you doing it for the purpose of parental control to limit the time your kids spending on the phone?
