Hi, and welcome again to the ProPresenter show. This is normally the show where I help you learn about propresenter, but today, I’m going to show you an iOS trick that can be used with ProPresenter and the ProRemote app, but doesn’t have to be.

This is a handy trick for your kids or for kiosks, too. It just limits functionality, so that apps can only do what you want them to do.
