Guided Access for Barcode Applications in iOS 6

Guided Access for Barcode Applications

Want to stop an app user from accessing the Internet or making phone calls? With Apple’s Guided Access feature (iOS 6+) administrators can now limit access exclusively to the codeREADr app.

Many of our enterprise & ticketing clients have requested this feature. Whether for mobile ticket validation, asset tracking, attendance, lead retrieval or any other commercial barcode scanning or NFC reading application, when issuing devices for specific tasks they sometimes want to restrict device access. With iOS 6 it’s quite simple.

To activate, go to Settings >> General >> Accessibility >> Guided Access >> and follow the instructions.
