    Hi,
    I am basically the sole Library Worker in a large (1000 kids) Primary School Library. We have just bought 4 new iPads with 12 ebooks loaded on them. Within the first couple of days the ebooks had all been deleted on one and the app on another. Primary kids are so clever and quick! So having this extra technology is great but I have precious little time to keep syncing my iPads when one thing goes missing all the time. Any help would be great. Thanks

    Use restrictions to prevent uninstalling apps. Not sure what you can do about the books though. I don't think restrictions will allow that depth of control.

    Gosh, kids sure can figure things like that out quickly! Use restrictions to prevent the rascals from deleting apps :)
