Display Overview and features


The Graham Foster web site has a page describing the tablet computers used when calling English and American folk dances. One of these tablets is the Scroll Engage 8" which was produced by "Storage Options". Unfortunately the following link to information about this tablet

no longer yields anything useful.

The web page that you are currently reading attempts to recreate the description of the Scroll Engage tablet provided by "Storage Options". All the dead onward links have been omitted.

There is a YouTube video from July 2012 which gives a review of this tablet. Many of the points it makes agree closely with my experiences.

My Scroll Engage is still operating (December 2017). The Poweramp application that I use when calling folk dances to recorded music works reasonably well. The quality of the sound played through headphones or an external amplifier is very good and controllable (e.g. play, pause, next track). However, changing between screens (e.g. going to playlist) can be hesitant, while display of the cover art for a track that is already playing can be delayed for a long time even though audio and image files are stored on the tablet.
