Free Trial Crashed my BrAnd New Tablet I downloaded this free trial and after the "exit" procedure failed to work, I just powered down my tablet which I just bought for my new business. When I powered it back on, it won't even load. It completely shut down my tablet and I can't get it off!!

Broken and misleading I cannot exit single app mode with firefox. I have followed all of the instructions a hundred times. There is no visible exit button. I have tried every possible sequence of touching the corners. I have touched every inch of the screen 4 times in an attempt to find the invisible button. Nothing works. I cannot uninstall it from the play store either. Trying this app is costing me a lot of time and effort. Not to mention a functioning version of it is really expensive! This app is far from free. If you are going to call it "free" you had better make the "free" version actually usable. Crippling it so that it is not actually functional for its intended usage is misleading. Also, the rules interface for allowing/blocking domains and resources if very difficult to use and not intuitive. I have been working with firewall and security software rulesets and regex's for years but I had an extremely difficult time getting this app to do what I want. It does have pretty icons and appears full featured. Unfortunately, it seems to broken to use.

Nice app I am curious about how you launch your app even though user has not selected your app as the launcher app? Or are you just adding your blocking activity on top of all back stack?

Works well and does what I need it to do. I work for ADSI doing Kiosk consulting on the PC platform and have been making the transition to the Android version for the past 2 months. I can honestly say It's a stable platform that provides all the functionality I come to expect from the PC version. Any one that is considering an Android based kiosk release should do themselves a favor and give it a try.
