    Since most of us aren't iOS users, you might want to be a little more specific in your description. I have no idea what "guided access" is.

    Tell us what functionality you want, and maybe we can point you in the right direction.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Generally speaking, Guided Access allows the tablet to be in Kiosk mode, whereby the top/bottom navigation bars and hardware buttons can be disabled, leaving only foreground app running.

    iOS designed this as an accessibility feature such that autistic children can stay on task; however, retail environments can use the feature to prevent customers from wandering away from intended shopping tools.

    SureLock and SureFox are nice but too expensive. Are there any quality kiosk ROM or apps that can be had for cheap?

    I'd recommend "App Lock II"--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...lop.protector3

    I set it up on devices I lend to kids so they "can't access" stuff I don't want them to.
    What I like about it is it doesn't display a password prompt - instead it displays the "Force Close" prompt.
    I also keep the Settings of my daily personal device "protected" with it just in case.

    Like "SureLock" the way you access the Apps that are protected is quickly tap above the Force Close prompt 5X's in a span of 3seconds.
    It's not perfect but the best I've found.
