Tablet Test

Hey—could somebody with an iPad send me a screenshot of this?:

And, no, it won’t look right on your desktop. But it should look okay on your Kindle.

About Derek Olsen

I'm a layman within the Episcopal Church with a PhD in New Testament and an interest in most things medieval, monastic, and liturgical. My chief job is keeping up with my priestly wife and our two awesome kids. In addition to that, I earn a living, run the St Bede's Breviary, listen to loud goth/industrial music, and do some stuff for the church. I currently serve as Secretary to the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music where I'm also co-chair of the Calendar committee and chair of the Digital Publications committee.

    Looks great on my iPod touch, though I don’t know how to send a screen shot. Enlarging the text by using the normal rubber band gesture makes a mess , though — text expands and frame doesn’t. Not sure what the model should be in that case; maybe that’s the way it has to be.

  2. Just sent screenshots of the page rendering in both vertical and horizontal orientations on the iPad. (Just realized the emails with the images might have come from two separate email addresses – oops.) The illumination images take up more screen area than I would like, especially in horizontal orientation, but most people use vertical orientation for reading anyway.

    Looks nice — kind of cool scrolling effect in the Office itself, even though I was running my finger along the outer right edge of the screen.

    There’s a little speckling visible at the top of the screen as the text of the Office scrolls underneath the ivy illumination.

    Let me know if you need anything more.

      I used this for MP this morning and realized why the speckling happened—I turned all of the “white” to transparent after erasing the original contents of the frame. So any other white also went away! I’ll have to rework the image and erase using magenta to avoid this issue…

    Actually, Derek, It came out really nice on my desktop!

    • Derek Olsen says:

      It will scroll on mine but the text only appears on the lower half of the screen, the frame is largely lost, and you can’t see the cute little birds at the bottom.

  5. The test page looks beautiful on my iPad. However, not being able to magnify the text because the frame is absolute makes it more difficult to read for the older among us who regularly pray St Bede’s Breviary on our tablets.
