Guided Access is an excellent set of features for the iPhone that allows one to restrict or block inputs to the device. How can I replicate this behavior with my Android phone?
The features the I am most interested in (so that I can restrict access to my phone when my children are using it) are:
- ability to disable all hard buttons (power, volume up/down, back, home, the button that display open tasks, etc.), and
- ability to disable all touch events.
Of course, such an app must also provide a way to re-enable these inputs again using one of them (or said another way, to disable the restrictions). For example, to disable guided access on the iPhone, one triple-clicks the home button.
