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?

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.

Good day. I'm develop application basing on your kiosk browser.

How can I get unique device ID?

Alternatively I would rather get the license number of your web browser using the API (JavaScript). This will allow me to license the devices using your license.


In fact, you are customise Cordova application. I think you may be able to make an API.

I have my kiosk set to refresh every 60 seconds. This uses a lot of data throughout a day. Is there a way to cache the home page so that it does not reload a live page every time?
