myPortfolio on a Tablet - Ten Point Check
Last updated 12 March 2012, 21:48
I have heard quite a lot about BYOD this last week and that has prompted my to investigate if a tablet could potentially be suitable hardware to use myPortfolio.
Today I have tried myPortfolio on a Samsung Galaxy Tab, tethered to my phone for 3G.
In Edit page mode, you can then edit existing blocks, but you can not drag and drop to add others
* MaharaDroid - This app is installed on my Android phone. I use it to uploads photos, videos, pdf, doc, xls etc straight to my Files (Content tab)(if the Share option doesn’t display Maharadroid, select file and see if Export does it)
See this clip to connect the app and your myPortfolio account.
A few good threads are developing on the subject in the Mobile - Mahara Integration group. If this is a topic of interest, why not join in?
Here is an attempt at a page made on the tablet. Being totally new to tablet use, I did fiddle around a bit, as my touch is still a bit heavy...
I can now see that myPortfolio pages, journal entries, files could be managed from a tablet if a tablet was the chosen device.
Anyone with an Ipad to put it through to the same test? There is no equivalent to Maharadroid for IOs (as I write) what "in-between service" could be used if the upload capability is limited on the Ipad too? Last year I was looking at Posterous from my Iphone. Let me know if you check Ipad out by leaving a comment!
