    Hi there,

    I want to use a communal iPad as an interface to access one website only.

    The idea is that it has only this one function, so we want to lock the iPad to point to one site, and only have further functionality if accessed by an administrator.

    Does anyone know if this is possible?

    Many thanks in advance for any help!
    Paul

    It requires a combination of a case that covers access to the Home button, and browsing software that doesn't show a tool bar. Search through the App Store for Kiosk, and you should find some solutions.

    Kiosk Pro, was the one that jumped out at me.

    Apple introduced guided access from iOS 6 onwards. Using this you can lock iPad to a single application like a browser. You might want to use this in conjunction with some kiosk browser like SureFox and get what you want.
