Mobile app security company Moki has announced that its kiosk app MokiTouch is available for extension via the Apache License 2.0 model.
MokiTouch is a mobile app designed to enable the creation of remotely manageable kiosk networks using iPads and Android tablets. MokiTouch can be managed using Moki's Manager product, which provides control, security, and support at the device and app layers.
This extension of Moki is intended to position this product as a means of helping developers using tablets as kiosks. Leveraging the existing source of MokiTouch, developers now have the opportunity to customize this solution for their individual circumstances.
Tom Karren, CEO and cofounder of Moki, stated, "Our mission at Moki is to enable continuous innovation, and we are excited to be more collaborative with our customers on the MokiTouch apps via this open source model. The open source projects for MokiTouch iOS and Android are available at [GitHub and going forward,] the Moki Engineering team will monitor issues and questions through GitHub."
MokiTouch and its accompanying Manager tool work to deploy, monitor, and support kiosks so that whether the kiosks are all in one location or spread across the globe, users can manage the entire experience from a single web dashboard.
The firm says that MokiTouch delivers the visibility, control, and security needed in customer-facing kiosk apps. It is highly configurable, and all MokiTouch settings can be adjusted on the device or through the Moki Manager service. Other key features include web traffic tracking, printing, content control via "white-listing," video and image play lists, and powerful user data security.
