I have just started using Inquisit 5 after previously using Inquisit 4 to launch response time/accuracy experiments on mTurk. I want to keep things as consistent as possible by stopping people from using mobile devices (ipads, iphones etc.) to complete the experiment.

Is there an easy way to do this?

The way to do this would be to prevent the respective script from running under iOS. This should be doable by adding code along the following lines:

<expt>
/ onexptbegin = [
    if (computer.platform = "ios") script.abort(true);
]
...
</expt>
