    How to connect to play bridge on new tablet?

    Hi,

    I have just bought a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet.

    I play bridge and so far, I don't know how to connect Wi-Fi to the website I subscribed to, so I can play my game from my tablet instead of my computer.

    Would anyone have an idea how I should proceed to be able to do it?
    Thanks in advance for any forthcoming suggestions.
    Jean-Pierre.-

    Hi Jean-Pierre,

    Q1. What web browser do you use on your PC to connect to the bridge game?
    Q2. Do you have an internet connection on your new Galaxy 10.1 tablet, i.e. a wireless connection from your new tablet to your router?

    Hi Rick,

    Thank you for your answer.

    Q1.I am using Firefox portable.

    Q2.Yes, I have a wireless connection on my tablet,Wi-Fi, Blue tooth and I do eventually access the internet in some Hotspots.

    At home, I have a secure connection with my Modem that has been tuned up to work with my tablet.

    From my tablet, using Firefox as I do on my PC, I log in and instead of the web page to play bridge, there is just a tiny icon showing up on a black background.
    That is as far as it goes.

    Hi Jean-Pierre,

    Do you mind providing the URL to the bridge game? I have a Samsung 10.1 tablet (but only the default web browser installed), perhaps I can assist in troubleshooting your problem?

    Hi Jean-Pierre,

    Using that URL, this is what I get on my PC:

    On my Samsung tablet I just get:

    Click to enlarge

    Is this what you get?

    Apparently the answer is to install the Photon Flash Player & Browser from the Google Play Apps store on your Samsung tablet. You can read about it here.

    Hope this helps...

    Hi Jean-Pierre,

    I've never used it but it looks like the steps are:
    1. Using your PC (not tablet), go to the game using your web browser.
    2. Select Questions from the list of activities.
    3. Click on the Help button in the login dialog.
    4. Using the dropdown list, select I forgot my username or password.
    5. Enter the email address you used to register and you will be sent a reminder of your password as an email.
    6. Use the reminder on your tablet.

    Hope this helps...
