    Is there such a thing as a locking folder app. I let my grand kids play games on my iPhone 4 and there are a lot of apps that I don't want them to open. Is it possible to lock some of your apps or folders?

    Not sure if this will do the trick or not. You can go to settings>general>restrictions and then scroll down to Allowed Content>Apps. You can then choose which apps to restrict while your grand kids are playing with your IP4. Options are : Don't Allow Apps, 4+, 9+, 12+, 17+, Allow all apps.

    This would only work based on the age settings that Apple gives the app, correct?

    Correct, you can't pick and choose what Apps to hide.
