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

User3053 4 months ago in Application • updated by Richard 4 months 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

Pixel 2 XL Navigation Bar

User3969 5 months ago in Application • updated by Andrew 5 months ago 3

Hey there Kiosk Browser Remote Team

We are working with the new Pixel 2 XL and so far everything works great!

Accept that when we push a Button on the Navigation Bar like the Home-Button - the Button still works... did we miss some settings or is it not working for the device?

Best and thank you very much!


Is possible to auto scroll content?

Gregor 6 months ago in Application • updated by Richard 6 months ago 2

Hi! Is there any option to auto scroll content of website. I'd like to use your app as public display of website. As web page is vertical "long" and there are no controls by user, i'd like to auto scroll content. Is this possible?


Keep alive Wifi reset

Robin 6 months ago in Application • updated by Richard 6 months ago 2

Potentially a very specific issue but reaching out in hope you'd consider adding it as a feature.

Would it be possible to incorporate a periodic check of network connectivity (either ping type to specific IP address or web page and in the event that no response is received that it resets the WiFi to trigger reconnection.

I appreciate you already have the page timeout feature but given the nature of the page we're displaying a lot of the content is dynamic (e.g. signalR) and so reloading the page would take the user back to the start again.

Thanks and great product by the way - A life saver for us!

Is there a way to limit the number of password attempts to 3?  Afterwards, prevent further password attempts for a while. ( 5 mins or a few hours?)

Automatic Home Page Reload Timeout Does Not Reset After Loading a URL Via Intent Broadcast

User3189 7 months ago in Application • updated by User3453 7 months ago 13

We our configured to have the home page reload on a 5 minute timer and is set to always reload. After we load a URL with an intent, the timeout does not reset. This sometimes results in the page reloading to the home page before a user has a chance to interact with the newly loaded url. It's my suggestion that this behavior is a bug and not anyone's expectations.

Remap a key to the 'tab' key?

Michael Lam 8 months ago in Application • updated by Richard 8 months ago 2

Hello,  My device comes with a physical keyboard.  But, it's lacking the 'Tab' key.  I was wondering if there's a way within this browser to map one of the physical keys to tab the focus around the screen?
