I've caught a lot of flack for asking that same question. Needless to say, I agree!MacBook Pro 13", Mac OS X (10.5.8), Intel iMac (Tiger 10.4.11) MacBook White 13" (10.5.8) iPad 32g (iOS 4.2)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 25, 2011 12:02 AM (in response to Demo)Thank you. I will write the feedback to apple about it.
There are plenty of applications like Alphabets, animals related etc, which are suited for a 3-4 year child.
I also have rhymes / cortoon videos which are used by by son.
iPad is so user friendly that a 4 year child can easily use itiPhone 3GS / iPad, iOS 4

I still believe it is a user experience issue.
Once I have enabled restriction with a password and chosen few options and applications etc., I would need to do the same again the next time I want set restriction again after removing it. It should at least remember my last settings.
Secondly when in the allow list safari is covered but why not mail application?

I think the iOS devices are generally single user devices. The Restrictions settings provide a way the turnkey the device. If that truly is the design goal then you would not need to disable apps like Mail which require you to add in the email accounts for the app to be functional. This is not the case with an app like Safari. Other apps use media that is appropriateness rated and that what is reflected in the Restrictions settings. So if you want to turnkey the device for a young child, you would restrict Mail by adding and deleting the email accounts. I think restrictions were implemented to allow a user to setup a device but not really also be an additional end user.
