Android Tutorial

In this tutorial a Samsung Model # GT-N8013, (10.1 note), was used. There are many android tablets.  This tutorial is basically the same for all, even though the operating system may be different for some tablets. This app is designed to work on full size and half size android tablets.  If you have any problems please contact me immediately so I can try and resolve your issue.

Step 1:

Choose an Import Text:  Open an internet browser on your Android tablet and go to a website that has text that you want to import.  I’ve chosen this website: http://www.gutenberg.org/.  I clicked on my choice, Moby Dick: Or, The whale by Herbert Melville to import to iCee Better App.

Step 5:

Customize the Background Color:   Click on the right side of the screen and a tool bar slides out.  Click on the 1st square icon to the right of the Profile 1 box.  A window appears below the square. Choose the color you want for the background from the predefined square icons.

The color will automatically appear behind the text to the left of the tool bar in the main App screen.  If you don’t like the predefined color choices you can slide your finger along the two color bars below the predefined color squares.  Experiment! 

If you don’t like the color you choose go back and start over by clicking on the white icon square in the predefined color icon squares!  So Easy!
