Sandbox 2.0 is now free on the App Store with some great new features including MDM support, tiled bookmarks, and faster browsing.
These changes are available for all iOS devices, and a version for Android is still available on Google Play.
If you’d like to learn more about the core features of Sandbox, take a look at our previous posts on the subject.
Key New Features in Sandbox 2.0
Sandbox is Free
As mentioned earlier, Sandbox is now free to download in the App Store. You’ll find that there are three features available in the app for $1 each. These are the Enhanced Mode, Kiosk Mode, and plist configuration features (all explained below).
Bookmarks are now presented in a tiled format. The icons used for the bookmarks are being automatically pulled by the particular website for you.
One of the big improvements in iOS 8 is the introduction of WKWebKit.
In short, this essentially means that Web browsers can run much faster on iOS 8 compared to older versions of iOS.
We’ve brought this faster browsing experience to the users of Sandbox through an in-app purchase.
Other New Features
Strict URL Filtering – By default, Web pages are allowed to load content from other websites (such as an embedded video from YouTube or an image). Enabling this option will only enable Web pages to load data from whitelisted websites.
Share Toggling – The accessibility of the “share” options are now under your control. You can decide whether users have the ability to share their content (via email or print) with this new feature.
Does Sandbox look like the configurable Web browser that you need for your home, classroom, kiosk or business?
You can find Sandbox 2.0 for iOS in the App Store.
