Sandbox is a web browser for iOS devices (It’s a Universal app for both iPad and iPhone or iPod Touch) that restricts users to a predefined list of allowed websites (called a “whitelist”).
Sandbox is a great solution for a variety of settings in which users should only be browsing specified sites. These possible settings could be the classroom, kids’ use at home, kiosks, restaurants, retail outlets and more.
Additionally, Sandbox offers the following features:
Lock configuration settings with a passcode to prevent users from changing settings
Add bookmarks for approved websites
Customize the appearance of the user interface to enable or disable features
Easily configure multiple devices using a property list file
Automatically return to the preset home page after the device has been idle for a specified amount of time
Home and Classroom – Parents and teachers can ensure students are only going to appropriate websites. This is great for academic settings where safesearch is required.
Work Devices – System administrators for large deployments of devices could ensure that the devices purchased for work use are being used to only interact with approved websites.
Kiosks – System administrators in visitors’ centers at places of business or museums could create a contained environment using Sandbox, meaning users could not visit other apps while using the iPad.
Restaurants – Have patrons order using a Web-accessible menu, but restrict them from freely browsing.
Retail Outlets – Shoppers could view an online catalog of the store’s inventory or online product brochure without having to give open web access to them
Be sure to leave feedback and a rating on Sandbox in order to help us produce quality updates.
• Fixed: Whitelist and bookmark entries can no longer be changed if a passcode is set.
Ratings and Reviews
Would love the ability to add more domain names to the whitelist, other than that great application!
Just downloaded this app, BUT the one thing it has already taught me is that SOMEHOW it showed up on my desktop and I had never even heard of it 3 days ago!!! So wonder how it show up??
Went ahead a downloaded it anyway cause one things for sure when the youngest looks for photos on Flickr EXPLORE it has come to my attention that they are surely NOT marked as they should be found a naked "person" male or female was hard to tell since IT was topless either very very flat chested but there is pubic hair being shown!! Now that's where it stopped so the he-she or she-he was hard to figure out still with make-up on it. But still I had to flag it cause what kind of parent doesn't.
Don't know yet if this will help or not, but for FREE it was just to hard NOT TO PASS UP for parents of younger kids.
Great for Kids who want to surf the web!
I use Sandbox to limit which sites my daughter can access through the iPad. It's great because it allows her to play games and watch videos from her favorite cartoon show sites and blocks out everything else I don't want her seeing.
I feel comfortable giving her my iPad and walking away now.
