Moki to Open Source MokiTouch to Spur Innovation

Moki (www.mokimobility.com), a leader in mobile app security and operations, today announced that its kiosk app MokiTouch is available for extension via the Apache License 2.0 model. This move further positions Moki to help developers and businesses using tablets as kiosks. Leveraging the existing source of MokiTouch, developers now have the opportunity to customize Moki’s solution for their unique circumstances.

The open source projects for MokiTouch iOS and Android are available at https://github.com/MokiMobility/MokiTouch-iOS and https://github.com/MokiMobility/MokiTouch-Android respectively. The Moki Engineering team will monitor issues and questions through GitHub.

“We are seeking to enable the developer community, as well as companies, that need to create custom kiosk solutions,” said Tom Karren, CEO and co-founder of Moki. “Our mission at Moki is to enable continuous innovation, and we are excited to be more collaborative with our customers on the MokiTouch apps via this open source model.”

MokiTouch is a mobile app designed to enable the creation of remotely manageable kiosk networks using iPads and Android tablets. MokiTouch can be easily managed using Moki’s Manager product, which provides control, security, and support at the device and app layers. Together, MokiTouch and Manager help companies deploy, monitor and support custom kiosk experiences. Whether the kiosks are all in one location or spread across the globe, users can quickly and easily manage the entire experience from a single web dashboard.

MokiTouch is one of many apps that leverages Moki’s SDK, which gives app developers the ability to easily add control, security and support features to any app. Moki’s Manager service is also in a wide variety of app types, including mPOS, personal productivity, hospitality and retail.

MokiTouch delivers the essential visibility, control and security needed in customer-facing kiosk apps. It is highly configurable, and all MokiTouch settings can be adjusted on the device or through the Moki Manager service. Other key features include web traffic tracking, printing, content control via ‘white-listing,’ video and image play lists, and powerful user data security.
