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

Possible Uses

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

animating is fun! ,

This is the best!

Sandbox is the best! I like editing my browser. It feels like chromium but with features to change settings.

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.

Great app!

Amazing app for teachers!! I block safari because my kids will get on inappropriate sites, but there is so much the Internet has to offer. This app allows my students to use the Internet, but with my ideas of sites that are "school appropriate". Love!
