Tips, Tricks, and Notes:

  1. DAKboard and all available web browsers, such as Safari are updated regularly to keep content secure and support new features.  If your iPad is no longer able to download the latest Safari or Chrome available by Apple, DAKboard screen URLs may not display properly.
  2. If your iPad and Safari Browser can no longer be updated, you can try downloading Chrome and use that for as long as you can update the Chrome browser on your iPad. Eventually, you may no longer be able to use the iPad.
  3. For users unable to link their browsers to DAKboard as described above you can always enter your Custom Screen's URL manually into your TV browser, or log into your account from your iPad browser and choose View on the screen you wish to run on the TV. Once this is entered, bookmark the URL for quicker access the next time you use it this way.
