    While finagling with the settings, I thought of something: wouldn't it be cool to use Kid's Corner as an extension of my Start Screen? So, I come to you guys, the wonderful people of WPCentral, to inquire about creative ways of using Kids' Corner to my advantage, being a teenage boy with no children.

    I use mine for guest or quick access to apps like GPS, music, video, etc where no password is needed. Just apps that will not compromise my security.

    I love the feature. When I do give my phone to a child or adult, I know they can only use what I want them to. Also, once you are in kids corner, it will not let you access the other side unless you lock and unlock the screen again.

    I use it for the Emergency Kit app to store my emergency contacts as I'm using password on my lockscreen.

    Y'know, in case something happens. *crosses fingers*

    I'm currently using mine for quick settings and tools. But more ideas would be appreciated.

    I'm happy they actually fixed Kids Corner not requiring the pin to get into lol.

    I use it so show customers the features of WP8

    Edit: I spoke to soon, they didn't fix it, it was working last night ~_~

    It makes me question its usability. What's the point of having another start screen for certain quick-to-access features if both require a pin? Not to mention the struggle kids around the world would go through.

    I believe its bugged at the moment because it was working perfectly last night when I first set it up but after disabling and reenabling it requires it
