Yup. http://techcrunch.co...e-a-guest-mode/

“Hey, can I see your phone real quick?” Oh, crap. What tabs did you leave open in Safari? Did you delete those photos (you know, those photos. The ones you promised her you’d delete?) That My Little Pony app that you totally-installed-just-to-test-your-download-speed-seriously-shut-up… is it still there? Quick, hand it over before you pique their curiosity! Or say “no” and be the weirdo who wouldn’t hand their phone over to a friend for a second. If only there were some sort of on-the-fly middle ground — a “Guest Mode”, if you will.

I had a similar issue with the Kindle Fire carousel. With some of my photo books in it there was no way I could hand it to my nephews for Angry Birds. Glad they fixed that so I could hide some content, but a guest mode would be even better.

I lost my signature and all I got was this Nutter t-shirt
