KioWare Releases New Versions of KioWare for Android™, Lockdown Software for your Android Devices

Version 3.5 of KioWare for Android is now available. The latest release of KioWare for Android supports Android Lollipop (5.0), enables WebRTC, supports proxy settings, and adds basic authentication capabilities.

Analytical Design Solutions Inc. (ADSI) has released a new version of their KioWare for Android software products. All KioWare products can be used to secure mobile devices such as tablets, desktops, and smartphones running Android or Windows Operating Systems. KioWare kiosk software products lock down your device into kiosk mode, which secures the overall operating system, home screen and usage of applications.

Version 3.5 of KioWare for Android (Lite, Basic, & Full with Server) now supports Android Lollipop (5.0). Users running Android 5.0 can now use KioWare to safely secure their tablets or phones to approved websites or applications, as determined by the device owner or administrator. The configuration tool has also been updated to Android’s Material Light Design. Version 3.5 of KioWare for Android also includes support for proxy settings, allowing for KioWare’s browser to be configured for use with an internet proxy server. Also new to this version of KioWare is support for WebRTC on Android 5.0 devices. This allows JavaScript to access WebRTC functions, providing access to the camera and microphone, ultimately allowing on-page embedding of the video or camera.

KioWare Lite, Basic, & Full for Android also now support basic authentication. This allows KioWare to automatically log into websites that require basic authentication. You can now set usernames and passwords to allow users to log into the website without entering those details manually.

New to KioWare Full for Android is a feature called “Heartbeat Geofencing”. Heartbeat Geofencing alerts the server when a device leaves the “green zone”. By setting the green zone to geographic parameters where the device is allowed to physically reside, KioWare Full for Android alerts KioWare Server when the device leaves the predetermined area. A heartbeat is sent, alerting KioWare Server as to zone violations, ultimately sending an email or other notification to your kiosk management team when configured to do so. KioWare Server allows for remote kiosk management, usage stats, kiosk health monitoring and remote content updating.

Users of KioWare for Android should update their version of KioWare to version 3.5, particularly if it will be securing a device running Android 5.0 or later. Current support is required in order to update.
