    Our initial concept was to just provide an app in the app stores and leave it to drivers to provide their own equipment, secure the devices, etc. But after getting deeper into the project, we decided to go with a complete turnkey solution for our first version. The DriverTipper system is secured with kiosk software so that the rider can only use DriverTipper and reduce the risk that they might add spyware or other unwanted apps to the tablet.

    We do want to make this as affordable and as widely available to as many drivers as possible, so releasing just the app on its own is something that we are still considering. Possibly as a 2.0 version that is capable of being more easily locked down without complex system configuration.

    It would definitely be much easier and less costly for us to just release the app on its own, but, for the short term, we thought it would be a better driver experience if they could just get a turnkey system that is pretty much ready to go out of the box. Setting everything up, including locking down the tablet with kiosk software, is a bit of a hassle.

    I might be able to buy into it if it didn't look like it was designed by a 10 year old. I highly doubt someone would swipe there credit card on something that looks so shady.
