    I have searched for hours for a way to lock apps or folders contains apps, but the only thing out there is for locking photos and videos, not apps. Many thanks in advance, GBI

    You can lock your ipad into an app with IOS 6+ i believe by going to settings, general, accessibility, guided access. This allows you to lock into an app with a pass code to get out. Check it out.

    Well yes of course I know about that technique. That's more for if a child is using your ipad and you only want them using one single app. I want to lock the apps on the screen. Or lock a folder full of apps. Any other ideas?

    It's not possible unless you jailbreak. The Hacking subforum could perhaps contain some useful information.

    The iPad is intended to be a single-user device, so the potential for locking out apps or files has never been built into iOS.

    You can use Restrictions to limit some functions, but I suspect that is not going to be what you are looking for either.
