You can make phone calls and send texts with a tablet—even if it’s not connected to a cellular network. Just connect to Wi-Fi and use one of these apps to turn your tablet into a phone:
Verizon Messages comes pre-installed on Verizon Android™ tablets, so you don’t even need to download it. If you use HD Voice on your phone, you can connect your number to the Verizon Message+ app on your tablet—your phone and tablet will ring simultaneously. You can even alternate between your phone and tablet during a call.
With ooVoo, you can use your tablet to connect with family and friends. The app’s video-chatting capabilities include making group calls with up to 12 people at once in a four-way display. Create video messages and share them on your profile page.
The Tango app is another great way to use your tablet as a phone. It’s easy to navigate and has a simple design. Tango lets you make high-quality voice and video calls, and you can even import Facebook® friends or your phone’s contacts and group them (family, friends, coworkers, etc.), so it’s easy to find everyone on your list.
You can use Skype for video and traditional calls, and to exchange instant messages, all from your tablet (or phone, desktop computer, TV or gaming console—Skype is compatible with them all).
Keep in touch with your international friends with Vonage Mobile, which lets you make voice and video calls on your tablet to fellow Vonage Mobile users throughout the world. Use group messaging and video chat.
Google’s Hangouts Dialer app lets you make and receive phone calls when you set up a Google Voice™ number.
WhatsApp is an easy-to-use app that allows you to send texts and make voice and video calls over Wi-Fi. You don’t even have to make a username: just connect the app to your phone number and you’re good to go. Also, there are no international charges, so chatting with international friends or making calls while you’re abroad is both easy and affordable.
Viber is a free messaging app that lets you send texts and make calls wherever you have an internet connection. The app is easy to use and it syncs with your computer and phone to help you keep track of your message history. It even comes in dark mode for reduced eye strain. You can also make low-cost calls to landlines using Viber Out.
WeChat is a social media platform, messenger and phone all rolled into one. Not only can you send texts and make calls as needed, but you can share statuses, create custom stickers, and even play mini-games.
Like Whatsapp, Signal provides free and fast communication all over the world. With end-to-end encryption, your information and conversations stay private. Crystal-clear voice and video calls help you keep in touch with your friends at home and abroad. And, you can send anything from GIFs to videos to keep your conversation lively.
Keep in touch, even without your smartphone. Through these handy messaging apps, your tablet will keep you connected to the world, so long as you have an internet connection.

Really appreciate the pace and thoroughness of your guide. Very impressed and great concept!
I watched your guide because I wanted to learn how to read books and get cooking recipes on my Galaxy tablet and I must say I am impressed! I ordered your guide on DVD so I could play it on my TV while using my Tab on my couch. Thank you very much!
Ordered this for my daughter after she got a new tablet and it really helped her in school. She tells me she uses it all the time now and I am forever grateful. Thank you.
Very easy to understand if I do say so myself. I’d be lost without your guide. Great job!
Jack Wallen explains how to install the SPenDigitizer application and begin using your Samsung Galaxy Note tablet as a digitizer for your PC.
Every once in a while I come across a little gem for tablets that really makes my day. Yesterday was once such moment. I do a lot of graphic design and other tasks that require finer use of a cursor than what a mouse can deliver. This could be creating images or even signing documents. When I do that, the mouse simply doesn’t cut it. Yes there are Bamboo tablets that are made for this very purpose. But when you already have a Galaxy Note tablet, why purchase the extra hardware? Unless you need the finer detail of pressure sensitivity, making use of that Galaxy Note is a quick way to get a large digitizer connected to your PC.
I should preface this by saying this software (SPenDigitizer) is in early development – but it works great. It’s also not something you’ll find in the Google Play Store. In fact, this was a weekend project for a developer as a proof of concept – the end result being something that is quite usable. But because it is in early development, there aren’t any settings to deal with or incredible feature list. This is a simple piece of software that does one thing and does it well. In the immortal words of Captain Jean Luc Picard, let’s make it so.
What you should know
- You can use this with either your finger or the pen
- The tablet and PC must be on the same network
- Hovering the pen will move the cursor
- Pressure sensitivity is not read
- You can single-click on the desktop using the pen
- Orientation of the tablet must be chosen before removing the pen (you cannot change it. yet)
- You must enable unknown sources for the installation on the tablet
- I was only able to test this on Windows 7, but it should work with Windows XP
There is a tiny application that must be installed on the PC. Download this zip file and follow these steps:
- Extract the zip file
- Change into the newly created directory
- Double-click the SpenClient.exe file
- If prompted, give the file permission to run
- When the configuration window opens (Figure A), switch the port, if necessary
- Click Save
- Minimize the Digitizer window
This is all you get on the PC side.
That’s all there is to do on the PC side of things. Let’s take care of the tablet end now.
Installation: Galaxy Note
As I mentioned, you first have to enable unknown sources on the tablet. Here’s how:
- Open the Settings window
- Scroll down to Security
- Tap to enable Unknown Sources (Figure B)
Prepping the Verizon-branded Galaxy Note tablet for the digitizer.
The next step is to download that same zip file to your tablet. You’ll also need to install an application that allows you to unzip files. I use UnZip. Install that as you would any file and unzip the file like so:
- Open up the UnZip application
- Navigate to the location of the downloaded file
- Tap on the .zip file
That’s it. You should now have a newly created folder that contains the .exe (for the PC, but you don’t need that now) and the .apk file that’s used to install the application on the tablet. Simply follow these steps:
- Open up My Files
- Navigate to the newly created folder (that was created when you unzipped the downloaded file) in your downloads directory
- Tap on the SPenDigitizer.apk file
- Select Package Installer (if prompted)
- Allow the installation to complete
The digitizer is now ready to use. All you have to do is launch the SPenDigitizer application and begin using the tablet as a digitizer for your PC.
It’s not nearly as refined as the Bamboo line of digitizers, but in a pinch, this little trick does an outstanding job of working as a digitizer to help you refine your mouse actions on your PC. Use this to create drawings, write your signature, or get creative with it. The software is free, and it’s a lot cheaper than purchasing a third-party piece of hardware.
Samsung Galaxy is the flagship line of Samsung Electronics’ high-end smartphone brand and line of tablets. The original Samsung Galaxy phone launched in 2021, followed by the first slate, the Samsung Galaxy Tab. With such a long line of devices, it’s no wonder that Samsung is one of the most popular consumer electronics companies around. I will provide a brief review and highlight some great Samsung Galaxy Tab apps to install.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab has an all-touch screen that is designed for a quick, simple, and interactive touch experience. While this may sound like all the rage with mobile devices, it is far from it. Samsung has designed its line of devices to allow the user to do more than simply browse the Internet on a page. Instead, they can do almost everything with their Galaxy Tab, whether it be playing games, listening to music, viewing photos and videos, enjoying a video, or doing several of the other functions of the device can do. Because it runs on the Samsung Galaxy processor, this means that apps that utilize the Android operating system will work flawlessly on the device.
One of the first apps that came out for the Samsung Galaxy Tab was something called Ticker. This app displayed a bar across the top of the screen that would change when it was clicked, giving users an instant summary of what they had done. After some time, users would be able to view all the sites that were on their schedule for the day. From this point forward, other apps began to be released, taking advantage of the multi-touch interface that the device offered. In total, there are now over fifty Samsung apps available for download.
Because there are so many apps to choose from, there is now a selection problem. Not every app works on every version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Because this product lines run on multiple versions of the operating system, some devices may have problems with certain apps, while others work fine with each one. Fortunately, all of these problems can easily be fixed with a simple download.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Apps: Flipboard
The biggest and most popular application that can currently be found on the Samsung Galaxy Tab is something called Flipboard. This feature allows users to see all of their email, Facebook, and Twitter accounts in one place, right on the Samsung device. Because this feature uses the email client on the device, all messages sent or received will be shown in the email client. This feature can prove very useful to those who use multiple email accounts, since it makes it much easier to keep up with their daily tasks.
Air Gesture App
Another popular application is something called Air Gesture. This allows users to perform a number of different actions using their fingers. For example, you can flip your palm over the home button and then flick it back out to perform a task. You can also pinch the home button to scroll up and down and you can also swipe with two fingers in order to highlight a word. In addition to all of these functions, Air Gesture will also allow you to quickly access your calendar, contacts, and a few other useful features.
One final application that is being added to the Samsung Galaxy Tab is a game called Hangover simulator. This application will simulate a hangover after you have finished working on your day. Although this is still a very in-development feature, it is definitely something that is new on the Samsung Galaxy Tab. As of right now it will only be available for a trial run of ten days, so those who try it won’t necessarily be able to continue playing. But the ten days should be enough for you to experience this fun new feature for yourself.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Apps Final Thought
There’s no shortage of apps out there for the Samsung Galaxy. I will be creating additional articles and reviews of some of the best out there soon.
There are several ways to share content from Samsung mobile devices, such as a Samsung Galaxy Tab S7. These options can sometimes be frustrating and confusing. You can download and connect through the Samsung smart home device app or try connecting a variety of different cables and adapters if they’re compatible with your TV or other display.
If you just want to learn how to quickly show what’s on your Tab S7 or other Samsung tablet, there’s an easier way.
The simplest way to cast your Samsung Galaxy Tab screen is already built into your tablet. There’s no need to download additional apps or mess with cables or adapters. You can screen mirror all the content you need completely wirelessly.
How? With Smart View.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 uses native technology called Smart View to screen mirror and cast content. With Smart View, you can play media and mirror your Galaxy Tab screen to numerous wireless receivers, such as a Samsung smart TV. You can even use Smart View to cast your screen to your computer — see how here.
Smart View is built into your Samsung Galaxy Tab S7. You can access it and begin screen mirroring your tablet in just a few steps. These instructions work for screen mirroring Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, S7+, A7, S, S6 and more.
Learn everything you need to know about screen mirroring. Read The Ultimate Screen Mirroring Guide.
Before you begin casting your Samsung tablet, you must first access Smart View. You can do this in several ways:
1. Access Smart View in your Galaxy Tab’s Quick Settings Tray
Swipe down from the top of your Samsung Galaxy Tab to reveal Quick Settings. This will display several icons for quick access. The Smart View icon looks like a play button surrounded by two semicircles. It’s the first button in the image below. If you don’t see Smart View here, move to step 2.
2. Access Smart View by paging further into your Galaxy Tab’s Quick Settings
When you open your Galaxy Tab’s Quick Settings tray by default, it displays an abbreviated view with only a single row of icons. You can pull the tray down again to reveal the extended view. This displays a full page of available Quick Settings options. In the extended view, each Quick Settings option is labeled. Look for Smart View here or swipe to the next page of options to find the icon.
If you don’t see Smart View here, move to step 3.
3. Access Smart View by searching inside your Galaxy Tab’s Quick Settings
If you can’t see a Smart View icon anywhere on your Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, you can search for it. Swipe down from the top of your screen to reveal the Quick Settings tray. Tap the search icon (magnifying glass) and enter “Smart View.” The search results will then display the Smart View icon.
You can mirror your Galaxy Tab S7 to more places and displays than just a smart TV. With the computer app Reflector, you can use Smart View to cast your Galaxy Tab directly to your computer. Reflector lets you record the entire interaction. This is especially useful if you need to record instructional videos or share your tablet screen during a virtual meeting like Zoom or Microsoft Teams. Get Reflector here to screen mirror nearly any device to a Mac or Windows computer.
- Screen mirror multiple devices at once — even cross-platform devices like an iPhone and Google Pixel
- Make screen recordings
- Record webcam footage and your mirrored device at the same time
- Share your device screen to virtual meetings like Zoom and Microsoft Teams
- And whole lot more — see everything here
Even though your Samsung Galaxy Tab is an Android device, if you look for a “Cast” button to mirror your screen, you won’t find it. Samsung devices use Smart View instead.
Make sure your Samsung Galaxy Tab and your receiver device (such as a computer running Reflector or smart TV) are on the same wifi network.
If you’re casting a Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and the mirrored image doesn’t fit your TV or computer correctly, try adjusting your Tab’s aspect ratio. Most modern TVs have a 16:9 aspect ratio. To adjust your Galaxy Tab to fit, follow these steps:
