An Android Kiosk

Kiosk Browser¬†SE is an application for Android that can turn your Android tablet or phone into a kiosk. Built with Google’s proven Android operating system and development tools.

As A Home Screen

Kiosk Browser SE can replace the Home Screen on your tablets so any attempt by the user to break out to the Android desktop is thwarted.

Caught In The Act

Capture images of kiosk users and the screen for fraud prevention and have them uploaded to your server automatically. You can optionally activate the face detection too so only images with faces are saved.

Remote Config

Load updated configurations at boot from a remote server or trigger a remote download when there’s no one using your kiosk.

Kiosk Control

Use the Javascript command set to control your kiosk, send messages to the user or even launch installed applications.

Last time I gave a quick run down of some of the features expected in Kiosk Browser SE. This is just a quick update to give you some additional information.
