I should add I have a 7’’ Zeki Tablet (TBDG773B) running Jelly Bean (4.1.1) that has given my problems since the get-go. The Tablo app constantly crashes and even the web app gives me problems.
If you use the new web app for Android, you get 20 sec rewind and 30 sec skip for both live tv and recorded tv. If you use the default Tablo app, you only get those functions for recorded TV. But if you want to use a Chromecast, you have to use the default app for now.
Thanks @snowcat. When you say the new web app I assume you mean the new Android app they rolled out for Droid phones? So that works on the Tablet too? There won’t be any viewing screen loss because of the larger tablet screen size?
Also, no Chromecast here. I use Roku. And now with the mirroring from Android to Roku 3 that was one of the reasons I was considering the Galaxy TAB S. That and the great screen.
Total side note, don’t get too excited about the Roku screen mirroring feature - it works but it’s not amazing, it is still in beta from my knowledge
I thought the new web apps were for smartphones? Not Tablets?
You can install them on tablets as well. It works great on my 10 inch Galaxy Tab 3.
No crashing so far, though I don’t use that tablet nearly as much as my iPad ( my son used it mostly).
On an Android tablet why use the web app? I though there is a separate Android app for the Tablets that require a minimum 7" screen.
The Android tablet app does not allow FF or REW for live TV (just recorded TV). The web app for Android does. It just depends on whether you want that functionality or not.
In the end the viewing experience is meant to be the same, the web apps were developed for screens less than 7" aka smartphones.
Yes, the current Android tablet app doesn’t have FF or RW but I can only suppose it will soon be added to the tablet app if the web app now has this functionality.
I can’t comment on iOS web app. The iPad app has full functionality and works great.
