iKiosk 2.0

IKiosk provides a simple way to turn your PC into an information kiosk, automatically cycling between a predefined set of web pages or documents. It's ideal for businesses: set it up on a PC at an exhibition, say, and you could have the program automatically display the web pages for each of your major products, staying on one for maybe a minute before moving on to the next.

Launch the program and iKiosk will use its default set of pages, giving you a basic idea of how it works. You'll start by viewing Google News for 60 seconds, then move on to Yahoo! News, and so on. And everything runs full-screen to minimise distractions (although if you press the Windows key on your keyboard then the taskbar will reappear).

To customise the program for your own use, right-click the blue border and select Settings. This displays its default links, and you can freely delete these and add new examples of your own, including the URL and the amount of time you'd like the page to be displayed.

Although iKiosk talks about "addresses" and web pages, though, you can also use the program to display files on your own PC, as long as they're viewable by its browser (local HTML files, images or PDF's, for example).

If, say, you'd like to display a PDF brochure, just click Add New and enter the full file path in the Link box - it should then appear just like a regular web page.
