Use DAKboard on your Tablet!

Introducing DAKboard’s new “Mobile/Tablet” layout!

dak

The new layout is optimized for smaller screens like tablets in the popular 7-10 inch range. We’ve taken the time, calendar and to-do lists and put them all in a single column that can occupy the full width of the screen. The weather has been simplified, only showing the daily high temperature. Lastly, the RSS feed has been moved to the bottom, and only occupies a maximum height of two lines. All of the sections are still configurable, and can be enabled/disabled in the options.

All of this combines to create a simplified display that looks great on smaller devices!

Get it on Google Play

To use the new layout, in the DAKboard options, navigate to “Screen”, and select the “Mobile/Tablet” option. We hope you find this useful! As always, let us know if you have any comments or suggestions!

    1. This is looking really really good. I only have one problem.
      When trying to have my calendar show up i get the following error?

      Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 72 bytes) in /var/www/dakboard.com/html/protected/components/class.iCalReader.php on line 373

      Any ideas how to fix?

      1. Hi David, this usually means there’s too many events on your calendar. Send us an email with your username and we can take a look. Thanks!

  1. This is awesome! I appreciated you making a separate layout for me and my tablet, but then following it up with an app? So awesome. My hacked together idea of the fullscreen browser+DAKboard page was working fine, but I love the idea of the all in one. And on the Amazon Store opens the use to the cheap Fire tablets.

    Once again, much appreciated!

  2. Is there any way to automatically start things when the tablet starts? Right now I have to click on the program icon, then click on the VERY small link on the new user login window for existing users, and then type in my user ID and password. Painful.

    1. Yes, a couple of apps can be installed on an Android device that will auto start an app, and keep the screen from turning off.

      One is called “Startup Manager” and can installed and configured to open a specified app at startup (in this case, DAKboard).

      The second app you’d want is called “Stay Alive!” and will keep the screen on and prevents power- saving settings from turning off the screen.

      Hopefully that helps!
