    There's no real way to monitor overall usage of the iPad because the apps are isolated - Apple calls this 'sand boxing' so one app cannot see what another app is doing.

    In Safari, there is a history page that keeps a record of sites visited. Although this can be erased, some Members have - before they give the iPad to their child - visited a specific site themselves at a particular date and time and noted that. They then give the iPad to their child and tell them not to delete the History file or the priviledge of using the iPad will be withdrawn. Selective editing of the History file is not possible so, when the iPad is returned to you, you can simply see if that site that you visited is still in the History file. If it is, then you can be confident that all the other sites that your child visited will still be there.

    Tim is right. There is no way to monitor overall usage of the iPad.

    However, you can protect the iPad to a reasonable extent and monitor Internet activity. You will need to
    - restrict apps (install all the apps you need and lock the App Store),
    - restrict Safari and use the Safe Browser app (from Mobicip, which does give you a way to restrict Internet access by category, websites, or by time, and monitor the browsing activity), and
    - restrict other content accessed through iTunes.

    You may find the detailed tutorials on the Mobicip helpdesk useful to set this up.

    Love the idea of spying on our kids and not trusting them. /sarcasm

    ..why

    "Ideally, parents establish good open communication and trust with their children, and they don't need to do all these things," said Neil Bernstein, a psychologist in Washington, D.C. "But if the child is doing something to create suspicion, you can't expect parents to turn their back and not monitor."
