Kiosk Browser back as topmost application

User309 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 2

Have Kiosk Browser become the TopMost application after X amount of minutes of being the background.

This is useful for when you use the Android.openApplication('myapp') API call.

Bug: power / volume buttons are usable when password popup on screen

User743 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 5

The power / volume buttons can be used when the Password Prompt is on the screen (e.g. after 4 quick taps). This means even though they have been disabled in the settings, they still appear if that menu is up (and only when)... so volume etc can be changed.

We have created a workaround for the password box issue allowing the shutdown dialog which is in v2.0.31.

Can I add a clock to the Title Bar?

Having the time would be extremely useful considering we are using this software for a cloud based timeclock solution. Ideally down to the seconds but even just hr:min would be acceptable.

App permission to write file system - can it be set in the profile?

User3053 2 weeks ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 weeks ago 1

We are using the kiosk browser to have tablets default to an app we have developed.  We recently got some newer tablets that won't allow our app to write to the file system.  The user has to exit kiosk browser, go to launcher, settings, apps, our app, permissions, storage, allow.  Is there some way we can make this setting the default or make it part of the profile when we set up the tablet once instead of the user having to do this?  Our older tablets are Android 5.0.2 kernel 3.4.0+, sw V49610b and everything works fine.  The new tablets are Android 6.0.1, kernel 3.10.84, sw v52110e
