[APP][2.1+] Tablet Talk - Text Message (SMS) on your Tablet
Talk is an application for text messaging (SMS) on tablets. It requires that the tablet
be connected to an Android phone also running Tablet
Talk. When a message is received on the phone, it is forwarded to the tablet
. When a message is sent from the tablet
, it is forwarded to the phone. The tablet
and phone can be connected either via Bluetooth or a Wifi network. Tablet
Talk also syncs messages you send and receive on your phone while not connected--when you connect, such messages will sync to the tablet
. It has too many additional features to list, including caller ID notifications. Currently, you can mute or ignore incoming calls from the tablet
, with more to come.
As of September 6th, Tablet
Talk v1.0.0 has been published to the Android Market
. However, the hope is that this thread will remain an active place for leaving feedback, requesting features, and releasing test versions with experimental features. As always, all suggestions and feedback are highly appreciated. If you have any questions feel free to ask here or via PM or email. Thanks for looking!
When posting issues, please include the following:
-Tablet: model/OS version and ROM (if not stock)
-Phone: model/OS version and ROM (if not stock)
-If the problem is with Bluetooth, Wifi, or both
Wifi mode: I recommend only using Wifi on trusted, secured networks--e.g. your home network
-Not receiving messages? (One of the most emailed and reported "issues":) Are you using a third party SMS app on your phone such as GoSMS or Handcent? If so, please see the FAQ of Tablet Talk's help section for detailed instructions on fixing this problem. It requires a simple and quick change to your third party SMS app's settings. For example:
Handcent: Settings->Application Settings->Default Messaging application: set to "Disable".
Go SMS: Settings->Receive Settings->Disable other message notification: uncheckAfter configuring the third party app, please open the Android SMS app that came on your phone. Go into its settings and disable notifications. This step is to prevent double notifications for incoming messages.
-MIUI ROMs: Make sure to allow the app permission to send SMS, otherwise it will crash on the phone whenever you try to send messages. New: disable "System MMS app priority" in MIUI's SMS app, otherwise it will block other SMS apps such as Tablet Talk or Go SMS.
-Infinite DHCP lease time: experiencing seemingly random and/or frequent disconnections when using Wifi? Please see Issue 20461 and Issue 18648 for more information. Huge thanks to Jon for this information!! This may explain some unresolved Wifi connection problems.
-Custom ROMs/kernels: If you experience frequent disconnections with Bluetooth and/or Wifi and are not using stock firmware on your phone and/or tablet, please try a different ROM or stock firmware. There have been numerous cases where users switched to a new ROM and disconnections ceased. If you do not want to deal with the hassle of switching ROMs then just email or PM me and I will take care of you no problem!
-Battery apps: numerous users have found that apps such as Juice Defender or CPU Tuner cause Tablet Talk to disconnect.
