Registers on a Tablet
So we are running a tablet trial in school at the moment with Ipad2's mainly but a few androids to mix it up. The staff are loving it so far and I'm really impressed with new stuff they have managed to do.
But how are people taking registers on tablets?
I've tried the SLG register function on sharepoint but its useless with finger touch
Any other ideas?
If I could get this going then laptops for teachers will hopefully be a thing of the past

We have brought Bromcom Teachers WebFolders SIMS Direct for our PE staff to use on iPod Touches. It is an excellent product. In the next release they are resolving issues with the iPad which I am led to believe will be out at the end of the month, We also brought the web version as well so teachers can do all they need to on SIMS without having to login to SIMS.

Using SLG on an Ipad is a pain.
I cant even see the bottom of the registers in landscape mode!
Also the triangles to page left and right are far too small for a finger touch.
Finally entering a "/" is a pain in the backside so far.

How much does it cost for Bromcoms solution?

The RM slate is pants with the full SIMS client. SIMS Emerge might be an option

I did some research on Emerge:
Prices are £299 per annum for the first device, followed by £99 per annum for subsequent devices.
A site license is also available for just under £3,000 per year.

Get in touch with @Sylv3r as he has an app which works on both IPhone, IPad plus others, he did mention to me about it but we have our own solution to take registers from the PE department.

I very rarely get any comments when I mention SLG via WP7, either positive or negative. (I am surprised by the latter!)
I wonder how many readers have actually tried it!

we trialled groupcall emerge and it worked very well in the ipod touch, they are also bringing out a version for android so it might tick all of your boxes

Microsoft Sharepoint Webpart working well on a Windows Phone, shocking isn't it?

I would suggest that trying the RM Slate with W8 may help matters. The improvements in the onscreen keyboard and touch functionality really have made me take notice of it's abilities. If there is a web interface to SIMS it may also be much more useful. Unless it uses Flash or Jave that is!

I found it to the be pants touch screen hardware, really could have done with a stylus or a better screen. Ideally a better screen like the iPad.

Are you using it with W7? If so, try 8. The touch interface in 7 was designed to be pixel perfect i.e. to be used with a mouse for 'on screen' controls, which is not the way 'real' touch interfaces work. W8 has fixed this and is much more accurate when using touch. As regards the screen. The RM Slate has a higher resolution @ 1366x768 and I have had no problems whatsover with input onto it.
