Hi, we have been using a chrome kiosk app built via the Chrome App Builder from the Chrome store for sometime. Recently the input boxes on webpages no longer become active when touched (fine if you click with the mouse) the touchscreen keyboard pops up but what you type does not get entered into the google search input box (for example).

A few people have written this in the app reviews, can anyone help?

Thank you in advance!!

+Yossi Hayoun-Henn it is currently not resizable and works as a windowed app...
you can use keyboard arrows to switch between the weather profiles of different cities but that's about it.
you can even swipe between two different weather panes using mouse or use the touch interface to do the same...try it out and let me know what improvements should i make...

Hi! I am having some cache trouble with my Chrome application. Though i have disabled caching within the background.js and gave the permissions within the manifest, my webview is only updated like every hour or so. If i uninstall the app and reinstall it, it gets the latest update but otherwise not. Is there any option of forcing an application to do not cache absolutely anything?

This is my app: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/seemiyah-player-v2/dejoonkgljcpinhbnpilpfkecigiaplj

+Ivaylo Bakalov I will try that out. I am using the Dexie JS local Database with the app and the bigger it becomes, the more buggy Chrome or indexedDB seems to handel it :(
Thanks for your support!

I realized I was trying to access the object through an app, not an extension... apparently they're different. Figured that out when I went to chrome://extensions, anyways, thanks for the help. Btw, the "management" permission was set, that's why I was able to log it to the console (picture) and not throw a permissions error

I have tried : 
- https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/multi-highlight/pfgfgjlejbbpfmcfjhdmikihihddeeji

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pearls-extension/mccffpojdcohdkefnbfhfdcklpcagdlc

The latest wiget that i have added to the SEEMIYAH Chrome application offers you the possibility to add the latest news from the Telegraph.Co.UK website to your SEEMIYAH playlist. This way you can have the news in fullscreen working as slideshow whilst you are away from your device.
Go get the player here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/seemiyah-player-v2/dejoonkgljcpinhbnpilpfkecigiaplj?hl=en #screensaver #slideshow #chrome #application #cloud #thetelegraph

Is there an extension that will allow a student to record an audio passage as an answer to a Google form? I think this would be really helpful for language learners or reading specialists. I saw how to embed a recording into the questions "Listen, then answer) but not into the answer.

I don't know of an extension, but if you were writing the app you could use the speech api. https://cloud.google.com/speech/

Regarding the excellent Chrome Remote Desktop for Linux: I have several developers who are using CRD to access a virtualized (VMWare) linux machine for their development work. Once started, everything works beautifully. The problem is starting! The script runs so quickly, that it attempts to start the next Xvfb server before the previous one is actually up and running, therefore producing a lot of "unable to open display :20" error messages. I'm guessing that the increment of the display number doesn't happen when it should and there is contention for the same display number. I've looked through the start-up script but I haven't been able to suggest a fix.
Any ideas?

webviews and state persistence

I have an app that uses a webview, which is used to log into a website. I have the partition property set on the webview, and it uses "persist:somename". This used to result in preserving the logged-in state, so that when a user closes the app and opens it back up, they are still logged in.

This worked up until about a month ago, when users started reporting that they are logged out every time they restart the app.

Does anyone have any insight as to what might be happening. I checked the docs, and they still claim that setting "persistent:" at the front of the partition name is all you need to persist data in a webview.

I don't have a repro case yet. All I know is that I have not updated that app in 6+ months, and yet it stopped working pretty recently. I'll try to make a simple repro when I get time, but that might be a while.
