Avoid Accidental App Deletion – LockDown App

Recently one of my readers Tahir mailed me asking if he can protect his iphone apps from being deleted by his 3-year-old toddler who loves to play with his iphone 4 . Now that is a common problem for iphone users . So I started looking around for a solution to this problem and what I came up with is the following Jailbreak app that can help you save your iphone application from being deleted accidentally .

LockDown : With Lockdown jailbreak app you can now password protect your apps . So there is an added advantage if you want some apps to be locked for privacy reasons .


To protect your apps from being deleted , just goto Settings – Lock App Deletion [shown in image below] . Your apps wont be deleted even if they wiggle .
