Default [Q] alternative ways to trick app into identifying phone as tablet?

This vendor has 2 different apps - one optimised for phone and one for tablet. the former is basically a crippled version of the tablet app. as I am using a Note 3, i see no advantage in using the phone app and would like to use the tablet app instead.

i understand there are currently 2 ways to trick the app into thinking my note 3 is a tablet:

1. changing DPI
i tried changing the dpi through Xposed but it was still identified by the tablet app.

2. changing build.prop
i could change this, but it would affect all apps, system-wide.

is there a solution which is applicable to that single tablet app only?

Thank you.

Per-App DPI module by Xposed. Or you can flash PA and use the Per App settings.
