    Hi,

    Not found anything on this so hope someonce can help.

    My young son likes to play a few games on my ipod touch and he has accidentally deleted some apps...

    Anyway i can protect this from happening and still allow him to play

    I have seen in settings-->restrictions
    a setting to prevent installing, just need the opposite!

    A sort of child zone mode!

    thanks.

    Not that I know of... There might be one if you jailbreak.

    if you jailbreak you can use lockdown to prevent the uninstalling and even the moving off apps

    I was going to say that, but I thought it only stopped people from USING them. Also, isn't it a little risky?

    Not really. You just can't move or uninstall the apps, it doesn't affect them in any other way. You can use them just fine.
