Remotix RDP Kiosk 3.0 update

June 6, 2016

Today, we're pleased to share an update to Remotix RDP Kiosk for iOS, our solution for POS and financial processing appliances. Remotix RDP Kiosk supports Linea, iMag and Magtek credit card readers that makes it a perfect tool for providing kiosk-style access to Windows application via RDP.

Below are all the changes in the 3.0 version.

* Keyboard Toolbar

Many users have asked us to implement software keyboard in order to be able to type in Kiosk. We've ported one from our remote desktop tool Remotix. Enjoy!

* Auto-Reconnect Feature

If network connection is lost or Wi-Fi goes away Kiosk transparently tries to reconnect to the machine. This is especially useful on iPhones, where top button cuts off all network connections.

* Swiftpoint GT Mouse Support

For those who like to use a mouse, the wait is over - Nulana and Swiftpoint would like to introduce you to the best travel mouse in the world, The Swiftpoint GT. This is a quality and award winning Bluetooth mouse that is comfortable, compact and clever and will now allow you to use your iPad or iPhone like a computer.

Please note, that Remotix Kiosk does not work with standard bluetooth mice and only has official support for Swiftpoint GT. Although Swiftpoint GT can pair with any iOS 8+ device; it requires explicit support from the app and is not a general mouse solution for iOS. Also, Swiftpoint is designed for right-handed users.

* iPad Pro, iPhone 6 Plus Support

Kiosk is now using native resolution on iPad Pro and all modern iPhone models, like 6S and 6S Plus.

* Connection Info

We've added HUD display of current connection parameters, including current rate, total bytes used and total time connected.

* Better RDP Network Speed Adaptivity

RDP engine now performs periodic network speed checks while you're connected to automatically tune RDP features for the best performance.

Remotix RDP Kiosk 3.0 is already available on the App Store. The updated Remotix VNC Kiosk app will be also available in the near future.
