Version 2.0.38 and up

The bookmarks bar feature is included with pro licences and/or devices paired to a valid remote management subscription. In certain scenarios you may wish to provide easy access to a number of websites as well as the default homepage, this is where the bookmarks feature is useful. It provides a side menu where the end user can tap a website from a predefined list of websites. The bookmarks bar is automatically closed if still open after 40 seconds.


Setup Bookmarks

There are two settings to control how websites appear in the list of bookmarks. The first is Settings > Toolbar > Bookmarks. This controls the urls shown in the list. Separate each url with a comma.

Settings > Toolbar > Bookmark Names. This controls the "friendly" names shown in the bar, if not specified the urls will be used as names instead. Separate each name with a comma.

You can also use Settings > Toolbar > Bookmarks Title to change the header on the bookmarks bar (default wording is Bookmarks).


Example:

Bookmarks: http://www.google.com/images,http://www.bbc.com,http://www.android-kiosk.com/jstest.htm

Bookmark Names: Images,BBC,JS Test
