Android 13 has broken Fully Kiosk on Samsung Tab

TheLAD 2 months ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Android updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 months ago 2

Recently updated my Samsung Tab A to Android 13.  Since then, screen does not wake up on camera motion or sound or touching the screen.  Only current solution according to FK tech support is to have the screen stay on 100% of the time.  I am worried about that burning the screen.  In the mean time I have resorted to just using Chrome to display the AT panel.  To facilitate ready access, I removed PIN protection on the lock screen so I only have to swipe to restore AT panel when the screen saver comes on.  Anyone have a better solution?

Ideal Android tablet setup?

Denis Shelston 6 months ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Android updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 6 months ago 1

Trying to setup my Android tablet for ActionTiles exclusively. I purchased Fully.


Now how do you suggest I only install what is needed for this ONLY task.? FULLY to run ActionTiles. Android devices need a Google account for setup and access to my Play Store, ie install my paid Fully . But it also sets up email and other stuff I really do not need or want on this tablet, like email alerts and so on. Any sugg suggestion on best practices?

Help: Using Dakboard as Fully screensaver?

rlburkes 4 years ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Android updated by Raf 6 months ago 28

I’m having issues with Dakboard and the screensaver. It doesn’t seem to appropriately size the content, so it’s pretty poorly laid out (most content is offscreen) it looks fine in other browsers on the fire so it seems to be related to fully. I was wondering how you had Dak configured assuming it looked good for you?

I found out my issue, Fully has an option under  Settings > Web Zoom and Scaling  for “Use Wide Viewport” which was on . Turning that off fixed my issue with Dak as the screensaver.

Using Actiontiles with DockScreen android app

W_B 7 months ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Android 0

I'm a long time Actiontiles user, who recently started developing an app called DockScreen Google Play


Its an app for keeping your screen on and viewing your notifications and news, it also has a webview that can display the Actiontiles web app..

It can also autoupdate websites so it solved that problem for me with Actiontiles.

I'm wondering if any actiontiles users will test it and give some feedback for further development..

Kore (remote app for Kodi) Intent available?

Has anyone gotten Kore running through AT via Fully Kiosk Browser (1.42.5) PLUS edition?  Following instructions I've found elsewhere on this forum I believe it should be working but I'm getting an "App not found for intent" pop up.  Using Samsung Android tablet.  I can get to Kodi to manage through webserver, but the Kore app is a much nicer app for touchscreen.

So in short what I think I'm looking for is Intent information for Kore if available (or confirmation that it is not available".

Thank you.

Fully Kiosk Screensaver kicks in even when an app is launched via universal Launcher

Steven M Burnett 1 year ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Android updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 1 year ago 1

I have 2 Amazon Fire tablets configured with Fully and DakBoard as the screensaver.  They operate as I want, when I launch Weatherbug or TinyCam, those aps stay in the foreground until I hit the back button.  Today I installed Fully on a spare Galaxt Tab I found and it behaves differently.  When I launch any app from an intent with UNiversal Launcher, the screensaver takes over in the specified time.  I just cant figure out what setting might be different between the Galaxy and the Fire

Please update Google Chrome...

Nick Marques 1 year ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Android updated by KamHouse 1 year ago 6

Hi all,

I just did a clean install (rooted!) of a Fire 7 (austin) tablet that I've been running for a couple years now. I installed Fully Kiosk Browser and when I go to the Action Tiles panel, I am getting a "Please update Google Chrome..." message. Is this message coming from AT or from FKB? Any fix?

Problems viewing video URLs on Android phone

BamBam 2 years ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Android updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 5

I am having a problem that I don't know how to solve.  I have two cameras, a WyzeCam and an Amcrest.  The RTSP feed from both cameras are being fed into TinyCam.  From there I am viewing them in the ActionTiles media tiles.  It all works well as long as I am using an IOS device, iPhone or iPad.  What I can not do is view them in ActionTiles on my Android (Samsung S8) phone.  All I see is the grey box with the little green icon in the upper left corner.  From the reading that I have done, the problem is usually the browser, being that it doesn't support what ever stream is giving the problem.  I started with the Samsung browser.  If I copy the failed URL from ActionTiles on the S8 into the Samsung browser address line, it works fine, I can see the video with no problems.  Next I downloaded Microsoft Edge and got the same result.  The URL works fine from the browser address line but all I get from ActionTiles is a grey box with the same URL.  And, yes, it is the same URL.  I use copy/paste and not just re-typing.  Also, in Actiontiles on the S8, the URL never shows as a valid URL in the media tile settings.  I would appreciate any help you have to offer.  Thanks

Which Android tablets people recommend for price and functionality?

Josh Fink 5 years ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Android updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 43

I'm not necessarily looking for the cheapest tablet but one that works well and is configurable. Preferably one I can root but if it's not needed then all the better.


I think I have a relatively straightforward use case.

  • I want to mount a couple around the house and have 1 or 2 in bedrooms.
  • I would like the screen to go as dim as possible until it senses motion or it's picked up.
  • Obviously needs to run AT and I would prefer it to boot directly into it if possible.

My goal is to make it as easy as possible for someone to pick up and use or go to the wall and use. If for some reason it needs to be rebooted or updated and it's turned back on that it goes directly into AT so that I then don't need to provide tech support.


Thanks

We have deployed fixes for this issue. Please reload / refresh your browsers.

Core functionality should now work for most browsers which were previously working in v6.9.4.

Those who were affected may still encounter some minor compatibility issues which we will track for possible fixes.

Is there a way to launch a shortcut to a contact in WhatsApp in AT? The idea would be an easy way for someone to press the shortcut and it would launch WhatsApp into the specific contact

Fully browser App Stopped Working Message

StewD 2 years ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Android updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 3

As my Fully browser loads a message pops up, stating the “App Stopped Working” the app works fine and the message is persistent. My panels all work. The only way to remove the message is to close the Fully browser. The second I reopen it the message returns. 

Nothing has changed in my setup over the last few days. 

I know the message is not connected to actiontiles but I was hoping someone else had experienced this and had a solution.

Does anyone have any recommendations on the best tablet for ActionTiles use that does NOT have a camera, front or back?

Looking for use in my airbnb and I'd like to avoid cameras completely.   People don't even trust them covered up :).

ActionTiles Kiosk App vs AT with Fully App?

its2loud 2 years ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Android updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 2

As the header says, I’m wondering what advantages there are to using the Native AT Kiosk app on Google Play vs Fully? 

Thanks

Answer

Thanks for the question, Its2Loud...


ActionTiles Kiosk App is currently using a stripped down version of Fully.


  • ActionTiles Kiosk App's various Settings have default values that are helpful for a new user of ActionTiles. It exists in both the Play Store and the Amazon Appstore for the convenience of SmartThings Customers to discover ActionTiles. (The Appstore version uses the FireOS version of stripped down Fully.)
  • The actual Fully App is required to use any Fully "PLUS" features (like screensaver, wake-on-motion, multiple tabs open, etc.). Those features require purchasing a PLUS license from Fully's vendor - a process that cannot be done with the ActionTiles App.
  • We have recently recommended the folks explore the WallPanel App and comment in this Topic if they are finding it sufficient, better, or not as good as Fuly:  https://support.actiontiles.com/communities/12/topics/6323-wallpanel-kiosk-browser

Can't add *Panel* to Home Screen (Android)

Jim 3 years ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Android updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 3 years ago 4

I have in the past using Chrome on my Android phone added shortcuts to panels on my home screen. No problem.

Just created a new panel. I opened it in Chrome on my phone. Selected add to home screen. But the only thing it will add now is app.actiontiles.com. It won't add the panel address. And it also doesn't give me the option to rename it like it used to.

Anyone else seen this issue and know how to correct it?
