What are the minimum hardware requirements? Will this work ok on an android tablet with 1gb ram?

I cannot see an existing javascript function for it, but perhaps a 'state' for what the device is doing - either on charge or running off the battery - would complement the existing function that provides the battery level. I know this is already in remote management, so would be great if one could access this in the app as well :o)

Not sure if at all possible, but could be useful if the kiosk was showing a site that had administrative features where you may not want to let staff access the Android ecosystem at all, but where the 'normal' operation mode should still not allow the end user to long press the power button (if that makes sense)

I cannot find this in the docs, but is it possible to just hide the 'back' button rather than hide both the 'back' and 'settings' button - possibly may be good to be able to just tick what buttons to show (ie. home, back, forward, settings, scanner, etc)

Just trying out the screensaver functionality - I only want to use one image, yet this slides across after X seconds (X being slide delay), the app should really decide if there is only one screensaver image it shouldn't slide at all and stay static

Don't know how many other people are in this boat, but we're using Kiosk Browser to turn android phones into simple web-based tools for employees at our company. I appreciate the locked-down nature of the app, but I'd like to ENABLE access to the quick settings menu, simply to permit users to turn wifi off an back on again to resolve basic connectivity problems that crop up from time to time.
We have an additional security program to prevent them from getting into anything else, but this isn't a high-security environment.

Hi,


You cannot use your own app, just a webpage or website. Kiosk Browser is a browser and not a locked down launcher.

The speech recognition annyang is currently, not supported in this browser. Allowing this will allow someone to use the kiosk without touching the screen.

Good morning, I would like to know how to shutdown the tablet when it is running the kiosk mode. I press the button off but nothing happens.

Thank you
A greeting

Hi,

You can either go into settings and power off normally or turn off the setting from within settings > advanced > hide system dialogs. This will allow the normal power off dialog to appear.

Hello, we are still testing and have a last problem we encountered,


We display surveys with kioskbrowser, but every session is only valuable for 24 min, we have a script to call on a script to renew it each time, so when the survey is open, and nobody was completing it, it refreshes so when someoebody starts completing it, it works.


The problem now is, after sleep mode, this doesnt work, so we have a timeout error and the page stays on timeout error all day. Unless we clear cookies, but when we clear cookies all the time, we get error message csfr token is not identified.


Is there a possibility to clear cookies when the tablet comes out of sleep mode?

Or maybe you know another solution for this problem?


Thank you very much!


Regards,

Sven
