Wednesday, August 12, 2015

Chrome Kiosk?  KioWare now supports Chrome.

We have released an update of the new KioWare for Windows (Version 8.1) software - rebuilt using the Chromium browser engine and supporting the Chrome™ Browser.  This update is available to existing KioWare for Windows license holders (with current support).  

 

New KioWare for Windows 8.1 Fully Customizable Virtual Keyboard

 
The new KioWare for Windows has one single installer for all models (Lite, Basic, & Full) of the product. Potential and current customers can download KioWare for Windows and determine which model is needed before purchasing the appropriate license.  Once licensed, the software can be deployed without additional download or configuration delays.
 
Features of KioWare for Windows Version 8.1 include:
  • A fully customizable HTML keyboard for complete control over the look and feel of your virtual keyboard  
  • Shell Mode & Auto Log in is now integrated into the configuration tool for simple set up
  • New support for Chrome™ Flags
  • Improved exiting options for the non-physical virtual keyboard
  • Virtual keyboard sizing via use of percentages rather than exclusively pixels
  • Ability to disable browser support for JavaScript pushState and replaceState functions as well as an option to force all JavaScript AJAX requests to go through the browsing access control list for permission - Particularly helpful for those using YouTube or other, similarly constructed websites
  • Other various bug fixes & configuration tool simplification

KioWare Basic & KioWare Full for Windows now also allows for secondary monitors to be used as non-interactive displays.  With a new option for disabling secondary monitor interaction, KioWare now allows for your second monitor to be used exclusively as digital signage, if so desired.
KioWare for Windows Version 8.1 is available for download and purchase: https://www.KioWare.com/windows.aspx.  Licensing is perpetual and annual support is recommended in order to maintain access to the most recent version of the product.  If you would like to convert your licenses from KioWare Classic for Windows to the new KioWare for Windows, log into your customer account, select a transaction, and click the “transition license(s)” button.
 
All KioWare kiosk software products secure 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.  KioWare Kiosk Management tools (KioCloud, KioWare Server, & KioWare Server ASP) allow for remote kiosk management, usage statistics, reporting, monitoring kiosk health, content management and more.  
 
All of these products are available as a free trial with nag screen. No credit card required.
