wKiosk is the ideal way for Mac OS X to present web-based content (HTML, Flash, PDF, videos, etc.) and applications in a safe and stable way in public access terminals with or without access to the Internet. You can use wKiosk to individually restrict access to Web sites, the operating system, system settings, and applications. Your computer will be protected against any manipulation from the time you boot Up until you shut it down.
Since wKiosk is built with the Apple Safari Engine, you will benefit from all the features that this modern browser has to offer (Flash, QuickTime, Real Audio, multimedia formats, etc). We developed wKiosk with the intention to Create a browser that would provide the same functionality and ease of use as Safari, while adding maximum security and Protection from user interference.
wKiosk is completely customizable, you can make it fit the individual requirements of your public access terminals. The program was created entirely within Apple Cocoa Frameworks, ensuring maximum performance and stability. The program also features an easy-to-use aqua interface and streamlined window for easy navigation.
wKiosk will automatically return to the initial screen after each session. It will also close all windows, delete temporary internet files and cookies. The kiosk will then be reset to its initial state. In addition, you can limit web access to certain URLs like your company website.
No programming skills are necessary to setup wKiosk. Configuring it is very simple and can be accomplished within a couple of minutes.
wKiosk is now fully optimized for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. A Mac OS X 10.4. 11 Tiger version is still available for customers with old Macs (download link on the customer account).
