EMV PCI ATM Industry essential guide

ArmorActive, an iPad security solutions company, recently announced the release of their latest app, called "Mobile Kiosk," the sixth iOS app in the company's suite of apps. Mobile Kiosk was released this week as a free download in the Apple iTunes App Store for iPhone and iPad, and provides customers with a way to lock down their website or Web-content for use as their iPad digital signage kiosk application.

The app gives businesses the ability to take advantage of their website's current features without trying to replicate or rebuild them in an app environment. Such website features often include data-capture forms, lead-generation landing pages, product demonstrations and existing product catalogs.

This app also meets the needs of customers who desire to custom tailor marketing messages and re-purpose the iPad kiosk for different audiences or events, the company said.

"Since most apps are designed as a template that constrains the user to a specific purpose, the ability to use any website as a kiosk is a more dynamic solution for businesses" said Jamie Lock, CEO of ArmorActive, in the announcement. "The most intelligent part of the app, however, is how easy it is to use. Simply enter your URL and tap the "LAUNCH" button. That's it. The easiest iPad kiosk setup ever."

The Mobile Kiosk's single-purpose features focus on what users need most, including hiding the navigation and address bars, restricting browsing away from the domain, disabling zoom and automatic content caching. ArmorActive's customers are using Mobile Kiosk to display their products, train employees, engage consumers as digital signage, and creatively reach event attendees with websites that offer online donations.

The functionality of the app relies on blocking the operator from accessing the home button. ArmorActive offers a variety of iPad kiosk hardware products, which securely block the home button on the iPad and enable mounting as a public display. Another way to disable the home button is by using Guided Access within the General Settings in iOS 6. This feature still requires a display mounting solution to present the iPad as a kiosk, but provides an extra level of security to restricting users from compromising the app or displayed website.

Mobile Kiosk is currently available on Apple's App Store and can be downloaded for free. It is designed for use on both iPhone and iPad.
