ABC KIDS iView is designed especially for preschoolers to watch their favorite ABC programs. The app is ad free and has a simple design suitable for young kids. Given that the content is curated by ABC, this app doesn't face the same issue as other apps such as YouTube where inappropriate content can slip through the cracks.
1. Open the Settings app, tap Security, then tap Screen pinning—it’s located under the “Advanced” heading. Next, toggle the screen pinning toggle to the “on” position.
2. To use screen pinning, tap the Overview button (the square button in the lower right corner of your screen), and swipe up and down until you find the app you want to pin. Once you find the app you want to pin, tap the Pin button—it’s a blue-green button with a white pushpin on it.
3. When you’re ready to turn off screen pinning and move on to another app, hold down the Back (triangle) and Overview buttons at the same time for a second or two, until your phone tells you that it has unpinned the screen in question. There's even an option to require your security pin/password.
