How to change the User Agent in PKard Reader

Post by michaelwolfe » Fri Sep 14, 2012 8:50 am

With the release of PKard Reader v1.1, we have added the ability to change the User Agent of the web browser. Some websites may only be accessible through approved browsers, and changing the User Agent to that browser may let you in. Here is how to change this setting:

First, tap the gear to open the Settings menu

Once this has been selected, exit the Settings menu and attempt to access the web site. We have also heard that some secure sites DO NOT allow access through a mobile device. Please confirm with the web site administrator for details on the mobile accessibility. You may also contact our support team for further troubleshooting by calling +1 817-478-5070 or emailing
