Version 3.18 of KioWare® for Android is now available.

KioWare for Android adds features to allow more customization of your kiosk behavior such as time-limited sessions, custom URL before session end, and navigation blocking. Also added: support for the Wattbox IP Power Conditioner for power management (Basic & Full). New features have also been added to reduce risk of kiosk downtime.

Analytical Design Solutions Inc. (ADSI) has released a new version of KioWare for Android kiosk software, with new features for customization, kiosk health, and more.

KioWare kiosk software products lock down your device into kiosk mode, turning your tablet into a secure kiosk or purposed device for self-service, digital signage, or mobile device management deployments.

Features for Customization

Version 3.18 of KioWare Lite, Basic, & Full for Android include features for customizing the kiosk experience. Kiosk deployers can now utilize the option to show a specific URL before ending a user session and prior to entering attract mode. A max session time can also be set, limiting the duration of a user session. Kiosk deployers can also disable the messages KioWare serves when blocking navigation to a URL or other error. More specifically, the messages can be set not to be shown on particular domains.

Improving Kiosk Performance

KioWare for Android version 3.18 adds support for features that improve the kiosk’s ability to recover from system or application errors. A JavaScript Watchdog feature has been added that allows pages to report into KioWare. Using this feature, KioWare can be programmed to automatically restart the browser or application if the page or pages become unresponsive. When exiting KioWare, the exit window has historically stayed up for two minutes before going back to the start page or attract mode. A new configuration has been added to allow deployers to shorten or change this duration.

Support added for Wattbox IP Power Conditioner

KioWare Basic for Android and KioWare Full for Android now support the Wattbox IP Power Conditioner. This device serves as a “smart” outlet. Integration of this device allows for power management of your tablet. It also provides the capability to monitor health and device status (via heartbeats), when used with KioWare Kiosk Management.

A new version of KioWare Server is also available (4.10.0) supporting Google's updated push communication framework.
