TabPilot Learning Systems, creator of the TabPilot Tablet Manager for Android, announces the launch of TabPilot FocalPoint, a secure, locked-down web browser for Android tablets.

Using a cloud-based control panel, teachers select which sites students can access. The choice is then administered wirelessly and can be applied to a single tablet or an entire group of devices. When students launch TabPilot FocalPoint, the site displays without the address bar that would normally provide access to Internet browsing.

TabPilot FocalPoint is available either as an add-on to the entire TabPilot Tablet Manager system or as a stand-alone subscription for schools without TabPilot Tablet Manager.

FocalPoint Secure Browser is a free app, available in the Google Play store or directly from TabPilot. A subscription to TabPilot Control Tower, the cloud-based control panel, is required. Yearly subscriptions are as low as $3 per device for schools that subscribe to the complete Tablet Manager system, or $6 per device for a stand-alone subscription.

For more information and a free trial of TabPilot FocalPoint, click www.tabpilot.com or visit the TabPilot booth (5285) on the ISTE show floor.
