    Does anyone know if an app can limit IOS functionality to other apps until a prompt or requirement is completed in the initial app? Would also want the app to automatically start after IOS is unlocked, is this possible?

    Anything is possible when a phone is jail broken.

    The best way to remote-access a Mac from an iPad (including the new iPad Pro) is to use Google's free Chrome Remote Access service. With Remote Access you can remotely use Mac OS X programs from an iOS device.
    Remote Access is software that enables you to remote-control Mac OS X from another device. Traditionally, this other device was another Mac (either in your home, or while out and about). But in recent years it's become more commonplace to remote-access a Mac from an iPad. With the 12.9-inch iPad Pro - and to a lesser extent the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro, which is also designed to take the place of a laptop for mobile workers - it's set to become even more popular.

    The advantages of setting up remote access are numerous. The most common use is to access files from your base computer while you're on the road, and remote-access software has saved the day for us in this way a number of times.

    When it comes to the iPad Pro, it offers another key advantage. You can run OS X software remotely on your Mac, direct from the iPad. In effect this allows you to use Mac OS X software on your iPad, and with a good enough local connection it offers the best of all worlds: portability, touchscreen interaction and Mac OS X's extensive library of work-focused software. Here's Adobe Photoshop running on the new iPad Pro 9.7-inch model:
