    Hi there.

    I'm trying to figure out how to keep a current screen on. I'll try and explain....

    If I have notes open - and have my grocery list on there - how can I keep that screen on and locked so that when I touch the screen throughout my shopping - it won't change and stays on....

    Using iPhone 5s

    Thanks,

    SparkyCanada

    Try: Settings, General, Auto-Lock, Never.

    Not quite what I was looking for....

    When I do what you recommend - the screen can still be changed. For example - if I am in Notes - it's still possible for me to accidentally hit the "<Notes" on the top left of the screen - and it will take me away from my current screen. I would like to remain on the current screen until I decide to purposely change the screen - I suspect with some sort of button or button combination

    Thanks,

    I used it recently when I had to sync 2000 items and the app did not support background sync.

    Glad to help :)
