HSYCO App for Android Devices
HSYCO App for Android lets you easily connect to your HSYCO Servers, in a more convenient way than traditional Web-based access.
HSYCO App handles your PIN/PUK credentials automatically in the background, allowing to quickly switch between your connections. It also supports rotation lock and kiosk mode.
To download the HSYCO App, go to the Google Play Store and enter HSYCO in the search box, or click the Play Store badge below.
Configuring a connection
The first time the app is opened, it will show the configuration page for you first connection.
Enter a name for the connection (e.g. "Home" or "Office") and the full URL to access your project on your HSYCO server.
Enable the Remember PIN/PUK option to automatically save your PIN and PUK after the initial validation.
The Kiosk Mode option enables HSYCO’s kiosk mode.
The Scale Factor option lets you scale the interface to make it fit better in your device screen.
Enabling Lock Rotation prevents the interface from switching to landscape when rotating the device.
If your server has an SSL certificate for HTTPS encryption, the first time you open the connection a prompt will be shown to allow you to accept the certificate and save it within the app. This prompt will appear again if the certificate changes, serving as a protection against “Man in the Middle” (MiTM) attacks.
You can add more connections from the App settings. If more than one connection are created they will show in the side navigation drawer.
If you want to rearrange their order, long-press on one connection item in the list and drag it to the desired position.
To access the settings tap on the menu button on the left side of the App Bar or sweep a finger from the left edge of the screen; the side navigation drawer will show, click on "Settings".
Here, other than creating and modifying your connections, you can set a password to protect access to the HSYCO App.
Once a password has been set, you can optionally enable the Lock on Exit and Auto-Lock options to control when to require the password to access the App.
The Show App Bar option lets you control whether or not to show the App bar in portrait/landscape mode. If the App Bar is hidden, you can access the side navigation drawer by sweeping a finger from the left edge of the screen.
