Tip: Display All Android Apps in Full Screen on Samsung Galaxy Tab

Bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab this week and are already frustrated that some of your favorite Android apps won’t display throughout the entire 7 inches of real estate?  Don’t worry, there is a solution!  It’s called Spare Parts and it’s a free app in the market.  Normally used by the rooting crowd, Spare Parts opens up a set of Android settings that have been sort of tucked away for safe keeping.

All you have to do is download it from the link below, install it, open it up and uncheck the box for “Compatibility Mode”, reboot and you can play games like Reckless Racing (our hands- on) the way they were meant to be played.  Have fun!

    Has anyone else noticed the Best Buy commercial with a Galaxy Tab running Madden?

      thats not madden i wish

  • This also works for tablets like the Augen78, once you get the good roms on it. Angry Birds on a <200$ 7inch tablet makes the kids happy.

  • Wow something Spare Parts is useful for 😛

      You Matt The Epic guy???

    • every time i set a phone up i use spare parts to increase transition speeds. these should be defaults in my opinion, but theyre not.

      • You can do that in the normal settings 🙂

          I thought you could only turn them on or off. The “normal” transition setting is too slow. I always switch it to Fast.

          • I've had mine set to fast for the past four months. Yesterday, I switched it back to normal. God, I love normal now 😛
