Android or Fire OS tablets make great display devices for SplashTiles!
Screen design considerations
Your SplashTiles screen will automatically be sized for tablet. However, since the physical screen size is much smaller than TVs you should consider these tips when designing your screens.
Consider increasing the font size if the tablet will be viewed from a distance
If you will be mounting the tablet vertically, you should create screens while using a vertical aspect ratio window size (on the PC). This helps with understanding how the screen will look on the tablet in portrait mode.
Your tablet's touchscreen makes your SplashTiles screens interactive! Consider using this for quick select buttons or home automation controls.
Many tiles have the option to set as Interactive. This mode pairs well with tablets.
In the SplashTiles app, you can swipe from the screen edges for control
Top down swipe opens the Screen selection buttons
Left edge swipe opens the Navigation drawer
Right edge swipe goes to the next Screen directly
Tablets are remote controllable just like your TVs! To enable fully hands free control:
Keep your tablet plugged in (either corded or wireless charging)
Disable the Lock screen. This is usually in Settings -> Security -> Lock screen type -> None. Not all tablets allow you to disable the lock screen. If you cannot disable the lock screen, remote control cannot turn ON the tablet.
Selecting a SplashTiles screen remotely will turn on the device screen. To turn off the screen, select screen "None" remotely. The screen will then automatically turn off after the screen timeout duration elapses.
