Prevent app exit on mobile device

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Nov 06, 2013 10:48 pm

I'm sorry if this is already covered elsewhere, I couldn't find the answer in the manual or forums. How would I prevent a user from exiting an app on a mobile device? Because of the nature of the app, only the phone's owner will know how to exit the app. Is there a way to lock the device's home button? I have heard of setting a device to kiosk mode, but I didn't know if this was possible through Construct 2, or perhaps editing the build? Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

I've looked a little more into it, and it seems that it won't be possible through Construct 2. You could have an instructions screen for the parents which explains how to use Guided Access (for iOS6) or some kind of parental controls for other devices. Other than that, there is not much we can do.
