    I used the search function to try to find the answer to my problem, but couldn't find what I was looking for.
    Forgive me if this has been asked before.

    I have apps for my sons to play on my phone, and sometimes, he touches the app for too long and accidentally deletes it. He's deleted a few apps already, which i just download again, but its a pain!
    Is there a way to turn off the "delete" function? or maybe password protect for deleting?

    Thanks! :D

    There is not... I wish there was a way to lock into an app also... right now I let my nephews play with the camera app (they love it at 2 years old) but they press the home button. Usually I at least put it on airplane mode though.

    Lockdown (if your iphone is jailbroke) allows you to set a 4 digit passcode and you can lock up all the apps on your phone or individually...its great as you can choose to lock the phone from accidentally calling out if your kids are playing around, or just to even lock the ipod feature etc....but will lock any apps on there
