I am going to take my iPad to a friends house this weekend. The family I am visiting has a 7 (or so) year old kid that I (and I am sure the parents) would not want using some apps I have loaded (nothing REALLY bad), but not within what I am sure they want their kid exposed to.Is there a way of hiding apps/icons so that the kid will not have a looksee?
