Use Your Old Android Tablet as a Digital Photo Frame | Fotoo

Are you planning on recycling your old Android tablet? That's good, but there can be a better use of it. You can convert it into an auto-updating digital photo frame for your home or office. Here is a guide on how to do it.

What you will need to do this are,
  • Your old tablet and it's charger.
  • A cloud storage service provider for saving the photos
  • An internet connection for synchronizing the photos from the cloud to the tablet.
  • And a tablet stand.
Once you've got all these items, now is time to set up your tablet so continue reading.

  1. Head to Google Play Store to download and install the Fotoo - Cloud Photo Frame app into the tablet.
  2. From the main menu, select the Cloud storage service provider you have saved your photos to, sign into it and select the folder that have the pictures you want to use for the Photo frame and then tap on Done.
    Once done, Fotoo will start transiting your pictures.
  3. Now tap on the transiting pictures so as to navigate back to the main Fotoo menu page and tap on Settings.
    In the Settings page, there are a lot of handy thing you can do there and these are self-explanatory, so I won't be explaining them one after the other.
    What I want to point out though is the Settings options labelled Charging. When you tap on it, check the Launch when start charging option and click Dismiss.
    This setting ensure that you do not manually have to start up the Fotoo app for immediately you plug in the tablet, the Fotoo app will launch automatically and start to transit your pictures in folder of the cloud service you have set up in step two above.
  4. Once you are through with step 3, mount your new digital photo frame in the tablet stand and plug it to power.
    One last step, Head to the Settings of your Android Tablet > System > About Tablet, then tap on the item named Build number over and over again until you see the message You are now a developer!. If on the first tap you see a message saying You are already a developer! then you do not need to continue tapping.
    What you need to do now is go back once or twice until you see the Developer Options, once you've seen it, tap on it and toggle on the Stay awake button, This will prevent the screen of your tablet to sleep while plugged in.
