b-lock iPhone Case Allows Parents to Block Access to iPhone Home Button
November 20, 2012 in Bags and Cases
[prMac.com] Adelaide, Australia - Toddler Lock Designs today announced the immediate availability of The b-lock Case for iPhone. Designed to allow youngsters to play games and view pictures on an iPhone without risk of accidentally leaving their chosen app, The b-lock Case offers parents a convenient way to quickly block the iPhone's Home button at any time.
Built from high-quality polycarbonate and available in a variety of colours, The b-lock Case features a convenient Home Button Guard that is quickly detached from the rear of the case and placed over the iPhone's Home button to completely disable it when the phone is being used by a child.
Following the huge success of The Toddler Lock App, a free download from the iTunes App Store that allows children to view pictures and videos on an iPhone without being able to zoom or delete, The b-lock Case takes security one step further. When used in conjunction with The Toddler Lock App, parents can be safe in the knowledge that their child can't accidentally quit the app and gain access to the Home screen where accidental taps can mean deleted apps, changes to settings and unplanned phone calls.
A recent survey commissioned by Qualcomm found that 53% of parents use a mobile device to calm their children. The b-lock Case allows those parents to do so without fear.
"I came up with the idea because my two year old daughter kept wanting to play with my phone and look at the pictures," said Matthew Parry, Toddler Lock Designs' CEO. "She didn't understand how to swipe and was annoyed that she kept zooming in, so it was frustrating for her and for me because I had to watch over her to make sure she didn't delete things."
As well as being ideal for parents, The b-lock Case is an iPhone cover in its own right, offering the same durability and style expected from an iPhone accessory. Working just like a traditional case when the Home Button Guard is not in use, The b-lock Case can be kept on at all times, negating the requirement for users to constantly switch covers.
The b-lock Case is also ideal for app demonstrations, classrooms and trade shows to ensure that those using the iPhone can only access the app that is currently running.
