I work in Museums where we regularly evaluate what we do by asking our visitors on their thoughts within forums, or
through questionnaires, customer comment cards etc.
We are interested in the capacity of the iPad to be set up as a kiosk, where we could invite folk to tell us what they think of our museums and displays, through a video browser. At the moment I was simply thinking that we could do this using
the Camera app, building this into a display system to secure the iPad, then locking the screen and disabling particular
Camera functions, so that the public could only click on the video function within the Camera, make their
comment, then click to save. This works up to a point and doesn't allow the person making the comment to see other
However, I am unable to resolve how to set a time limit on the video function, which can often mean that the video can
run on if the user hasn't saved their comment properly, or a child decides to play with this. It would be preferable to set a limit of say, 1 minute, so that comments were short and to the point.
My enquiry is to ask if anyone can advise on a way to control this, either through the iPad Camera app, or perhaps
through other Apps that do this better?
I wondered if anyone has tried to use iPad in this way, or could advise?
With best wishes
