App launcher

 

Our Mobility Team has developed an application launcher that controls access to content on smartphones and tablets for Educo. The value of this project goes beyond its technology: it provides a service to a child protection organization present in all five continents, which affirms its importance both socially and in terms of its international scope.

The launcher is based on the replacement of the desktop by default of the Android devices to control the functionality offered by the system, both in terms of the Internet and its content. It has been developed in Xamarin.Android 4.1 with support for all devices starting from the 4.2 version of the operating system with coverage of the fragmentation around 80 % of the market. The entire application is executed at the local level without needing a server. The only time a connection is required is during the activation which is facilitated through a code provided by Educo using REST services.

 

Educo is an NGO with global cooperation which has worked for more than 25 years for children, in defense of their rights, particularly, their right to receive an equal and quality education. Educo is active in Spain and in various countries in Africa, America and Asia, through its social projects which involve more than 550,000 children and 150,000 adults. They promote just and equitable societies and the rights and welfare of its citizens.

Description

 

The application manages the set of applications that run, as well as the possibility of controlling the internet connection. The importance and advantage of this application lies in its ability to allow parents to control the contents that children have access to, because it disables access to the files stored in the memory, enables or disables access to the gallery of images and manages desktop applications that your children can access. It disables the internet connection when necessary, preventing young children from accessing inappropriate content and from making In-App (within applications) purchases. These features can be enabled or disabled by the administrator user, which is usually a parent or guardian.
