    I am using an iPad 2 as a monitor that I let my nanny use to watch a Dropcam that is being used as a baby monitor. I do not want my nanny doing anything other than using the Dropcam app so I put it into the dock, removed all other apps from the dock, and placed all stock apps into a folder.

    Is there a way to remove stock apps or somehow control what she can do with them!

    Thanks.

    A) then should she or he really be watching your kid? B) it's and iPad ... Not like they can buy apps or anything unless they figure out your password

    My point is that I do not want her using safari or poking around with other apps. I only want her using the Dropcam app. I had a Motorola baby monitor with a dedicated portable screen and it was the best camera on the market for baby monitors and the quality was awful compared to the Dropcam. That is why I now am using the Dropcam/iPad 2 solution.

    Thanks so much. I didn't know about guided access. This takes care of it!
