Embed Web or App
« on: May 25, 2014, 02:36:57 am »
Hi,

Wondering if this is possible or could be added as a feature request.

I have a number of Dashboards and wanted to know if it's possible to have an entire screen or dashboard view a webpage or have an android application open without click on launch app?

Hi,

Having a nearly-fullscreen is possible using the page layout that only has 1 widget placeholder : then put a webpage in this placeholder and here you go :)

However, embedding an app in the dashboard in not possible right now. We did not investigate this possibility and don't even know if it is possible : anyway, even if it is we would expect is to be quite complicated and thus we do not expect it to be a reality in the near future in the app :/

Best,

Hi Imperihome,

What about adding some of the existign functionality of the google launcher such as Direct Dial /Skype Contact

Also a Agenda Calendar view..."Whats on today"

I realise this is getting into full blown Android launcher capability... but adding this would just make a kitchen wall mounted tablet uber cool!
