    Only those apps that are designed by their developers to incorporate password protection offer this capability. It is not possible to generally password-protect other apps - for example, it's not possible to password-protect any of Apple's iWorks suite of Office-compatible apps. It's not that no-one has so far written an app - it's technically not possible on a non-jailbroken iPad because of the restrictions imposted by the iPad's operating system iOS, which mandates that one app cannot directly control or influence another (for virus protection purposes). The only interaction that is allowed between apps is via iOS and that is limited and would not allow password protection.

    If you jailbreak there is a tweak called locktopus which does exactly this, but I don't think you can jailbreak iPad 2 yet :(

    Thanks Tim
    Yes this is quite boring, the only way is to place a central password on the iPad screen, jailbreak could be an option but its early to jailbreak the unit and wonder if it's possible to do so

    I reckon its too soon to jail break the new iPad and more so ever as you rightly mentioned if it's possible to do so
