Open Application not regaining focus

James Sampford 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 5

Tried this on my Android Lollipop device, but it seems that focus is not being regained after any time that was specified. Also, I was able to switch apps "once out" using the drawer soft button. Not tested on another device, but can do so in the morning

Nelson Dias 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 9
It's mentioned ion knowledge base that it supports opening PDF in browser
It fails even having google docs and google drive installed.

Specify a list of idle URLs to call

User487 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 2
Use Case: museum exposition with different objects. Each object has its own web page. Tablets with the Kiosk Browser in the room allow detailed examination, but when idle/not being used, we would like to switch between the pages. Example: Idle: show object 1 url for 1 min, then show object 2 url for 1 min, ... It could be sequentially or also random.

Remember kiosk website login credentials

Bruce Minchinton 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 1

Would it be feasible to have a setting that allows for storing of login credentials (username/email & passcode) for the kiosk website?

I imagine it would nut suit every implementation of Kiosk Browser, but it would suit me.

Shutdown with Video Screensaver on

User848 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 10

Hi, for some reason if the video screensaver is playing, the kiosk doesn't shutdown at the time required - if you touch the screen the kiosk immediately shuts down, any idea what causes this?

Every time I restart the tablet I loose the Pro version

Enrico Conte 2 years ago in Application • updated 2 years ago 14

I bought the pro version from google play (Australia) as I am using it just on a couple of devices for my family but when I turn off and back on the tablets Kiosk browser doesn't check on google play for the licence so all the settings that are available in the pro version don't apply to the app and I have to go into the settings and click on "get pro" to make it realize I bought the pro version.

Is there any way to fix this? Of course it happens that the tablet runs out of battery and when I restart it the pro features are disabled.
Please, let me know.
