public license, version 3 and is available
as a Point of Sale software service. Free Software
means 'FREEDOM '. The principles behind Free Software
go back to the early days of computing, and many people have fought
long and hard to protect freedom in computing. ViewTouch source code is
Available at GitHub. ViewTouch users enjoy the

ViewTouch is the world's most versatile Mobile
POS solution. Our custom 'X' server transforms Android tablets
into 'embedded display devices' to meet
every Point of Sale requirement: as fixed POS displays, at tableside
and as kitchen display terminals. Android
tablets of any size and any resolution integrate into POS systems
with the ViewTouch 'X' server, freely
downloadable here!. ViewTouch tablets work much the way a TV
works; they have only one job - to display the POS interface by
following low level instructions passed across the network from a 6th
NUC iCore Skylake
processor which runs the ViewTouch POS application.
Intel 64-bit, 14 nm process, quad core computer
with M.2 PCIE
NVMe storage, DDR4-2133 RAM, 802.11ac WiFi and
BlueTooth 4.1! An external SDXC (UHS-1, 104 MB/s) slot and Intel
graphics extend the versatility and the performance lead of
computers. No other Point of Sale vendor uses Intel's core i5
processing power to drive both POS displays and tablets,
ViewTouch exploits the remote display capabilities of the X Window
System. No other POS vendor has X to throw POS display screens
across the network to tablets.
Other vendors are limited by the processing power of the tablets
themselves - but ViewTouch tablets rely on the Intel NUC's blazingly
fast NVMe storage and
All ViewTouch touchscreens feature 'Edge to Edge
Glass' and have maximum resistance to damage from spillage.
