Was able to download and begin configuration before even purchasing it. Huge plus! I was able to get it working almost exactly the way I wanted in a very short amount of time. When I was satisfied with how the product worked after some testing I purchased the licensing, and deployed about a dozen employee timeclock kiosks at my company using this software. Locks down the tablets perfectly and keeps them limited to the employee timeclock web portal. I added a nice attract screen for when the device isn't in use, which looks great! Highly recommend the product!

A lot of settings and support for many services, but it seems like I am not able to prevent the keyboard from showing up if a text box is selected.

Couldn't exit the app after completing the tutorial. Thankfully, I didn't set it as home. I uninstalled it by going into it's app info really fast and uninstalling it before I was redirected back to the app.
