Leigh just asked a question in a different thread but I thought it warranted a separate thread so people could find it more easily for reference.

Essentially you 'pin' an app so it locks into that one app until you do a combination key press to get out of it.

To enable the pinning- go into your settings- Security- look for personal. Then screen pinning.

I took a screen grab of the menu on my device.

Android pin settings

To get out of it press the little square (overview) and the back button at the same time- not as effective as a pin number on iOS so don't let the kids watch the magic undo keypress.
