Datalogic Launcher is now available. It is an Android application used to lock down the device to launch only allowed applications. It can also limit access to several system device features, such as the Overview button (for switching apps) and the Global Actions dialog (for restarting the device). Once started, it behaves as the device Home screen (when you tap the Home button). You can access the documentation here.

The features available in the initial release are:

  • Locked down device
    • Presents screen listing limited apps available for launch.
    • System features (such as notification and system status) can be disabled.
    • Configuration (and exit) protected by Admin password.
  • Launching apps
    • Can launch APK or Web page (via URL).
    • UI appearance of app listing can be configured (labels, icons, layout, wallpaper).
  • External control
    • Configurable from device, Scan2Deploy Studio or EMM console.
