Viewing Traveller PDFs on an Amazon Fire HD tablet

Postby IanBruntlett » Sat Nov 21, 2020 10:18 pm

Hi,

Is there anyone out there who views Traveller PDFs on a tablet?

Would be very interested to know if it works for you and what your experiences have been.

TIA,


Ian

I picked Fire 7 years ago because PDF support is integral. I now own a Fire 10 and still have no issues with its PDF support. That include MANY Traveller books and products.

Generally, I use a tablet when running a scenario. It works fine: I highlight important parts of the adventure and I insert some notes for myself.

As for the rules, I largely prefer hard copies but when I'm looking for something very specific I might choose to research it on the pdf version (not always though).

Obviously, when I'm not home I use my tablet :)

I have a mix of Tablets.

Samsung -Galaxy - Looks fine and works well. Is also nice and easy to hold
Surface Pro - Windows so everything works. Can be a heavy on the hands after a while, but other than that its fine. Very good size screen for PDF's
