Change Log: Basic

8.2

Released on April 17, 2017

Changes & Enhancements:
  • We have updated how we handle visitor sessions, and more specifically, ‘Clear Cache on Homepage’ and ‘Clear Cookies on Homepage’ to better match visitor intent in specific circumstances. If the app idle times out, or the visitor taps the Home icon in the bottom navigation, or ‘kiosk://home’ is called, the app will continue to close the session and will clear all history, cache & cookies immediately. If the visitor taps a standard link that returns then to the homepage or navigates back to the homepage using the Back icon in the bottom navigation, we will now continue the session until one of the actions above closes the session.
  • We now prevent tabbing through inputs when using an external keyboard and the UIWebView browser engine as this combination frequently causes app instability and crashing. While we recommend the use of WKWebView if tab support is required, you can re-enable tabbing in UIWebView using remote settings control through a hidden key-value pair at the bottom of the .xml template.
  • Slightly increased the touch areas for icons in the navigation bar and updated icon graphics.
  • Added labels to settings that are specific to the UIWebView or WKWebView browser engine.
Fixed:
  • The app now automatically reloads the page if it is notified that the WKWebView browser component has crashed, which would previously have resulted in a blank screen.
  • The iOS touch callout menu (cut/copy/paste) was being shown in WKWebView on long press of an image map.
  • When showing the address bar, Kiosk Pro was including entries for a behind-the-scenes process, ‘about:srcdoc’, that have now been removed.
Remote Settings Control Template

New settings have been added in this update; while the previous .xml file will still work for all pre-existing settings, you will need to update your .xml file to have remote control over new settings.

Changes to 'kiosk_functions.js'

No changes were made to 'kiosk_functions.js' in this update.


8.1

Released on February 15, 2017

Changes:
  • Added the ability to select which iOS browser engine is used to render content. By default, the app now uses WKWebView, which is faster and less likely to crash. To revert to the previous browser, select UIWebView.
  • Added the ability to allow exceptions to https:// security protocols in WKWebView.
  • Added the ability to export the settings file for Remote Settings Control via email.
  • Updated our PDF viewer to allow linking to a specific page in a locally-stored PDF.
  • Updated how Kiosk Pro clears the cache. The app now only uses double loading to clear the cache when using the UIWebView browser engine. This double loading may cause issues on homepages with autoplay video or complex JavaScript; in this event, we recommend using the default WKWebView browser engine.
  • Fixed a bug where the app would show a blank page instead of the ‘No Internet’ page on the second and all subsequent homepage loads while offline.
  • Fixed a bug with the ‘Refresh Homepage’ setting, which was not triggering as expected.
  • Fixed a bug where using an input tag to connect to the device’s built-in camera would cause Kiosk Pro to crash.
  • Fixed a bug where the Idle Time Limit triggering when a video was full-screen would cause Kiosk Pro to crash.
Remote Settings Control Template

Changes to 'kiosk_functions.js'

Due to changes in Xcode 8, which is used to compile the app, we've been forced to restructure the 'kiosk_functions.js' file that allows your code to access Kiosk Pro's JavaScript API.  If updating the app to version 7.8 or later from a previous version, you will need to update this file by tapping the 'Generate API Functions File' with the app's settings or downloading below.


7.7

Released on September 12, 2016

Changes:

  • Changed “Local Mode” to “Local File Directory” to more accurately describe the feature.
