iOS 6: Guided Access improves app experience for children

Apple today announced that iOS 6 will include a new accessibility feature called Guided Access. This new feature is aimed at children with autism and allows a parent or other adult to select specific portions of apps—such as navigation controls—to disable, and also provides the option to enable or disable the hardware buttons, touch controls, or motion controls independently.

So, how does this work exactly?

I triple tap the home button once in an app to launch the restricted mode.  Can I at that point circle controls I want to deactivate?  If not when?  And how can I get out of this mode when my child is done playing with my iPad?
