How many family members can I share the app with?
You can add 9 family members to the app. This is due to the natural limitations of visualization.
Why is it not possible to use the App only?
All our testing shows that the biggest effect of FamilyBoard is the visualization. The board is therefore an essential part of the system and creates involvement from the whole family.
Why is the App not available on IOS or Google Play yet?
The app is currently being tested in beta-version and will be launched very soon for out first customers.
What is the interactive board?
The interactive board is the touch board that the FamilyBoard software is optimized for. It is an 21,5" tablet ehich runs on Android 9.
How do I mount FamilyBoard?
FamilyBoard comes with two possibilities of installation, a circular stand and 2 plug holes. Our recommendation is to mount the FamilyBoard to the wall in order to keep it safe and without possibility of moving (falling).
All our pilot customers kept their FamilyBoard in the kitchen to get full effect of the system.
Can I select my own layout and customize the look?
FamilyBoard is delivered with 4 views:
Photo frame + 2 week view
Photo frame + 2 day view
Photo frame only (guest mode)
4 week view (no photo frame)
You can easily choose between these views to find what works best for your family.
You select the color for each family member so it is up to you to select whether you want pastel, colorful or monochrome look.
You can also activate color inversion in order to get a 'dark mode' display.
Can I use the interactive board for anything else?
FamilyBoard runs on Android 9.1, so any app available on this Android version will run on the board.
It is important to note that we do not make any guarantees with regards to running other apps, as only the FamilyBoard software has been optimised for this tablet (most tablets are between 7-13 inches, where the FamilyBoard is 21,5").
How robust is the interactive board?
FamilyBoard is very much like other tablets only it is bigger. It does not come with a protective cover, so should not be dropped. It should be mounted correctly before you start using it.
Why can't I test the mobile app before I purchase the interactive board?
All our testing shows that the interactive board is an essential part of getting use out of the system.
Why can't I use FamilyBoard with my old ipad/tablet?
All our pilot customers have given feedback that the size of the board isessential to get the correct overview.
The FamilyBoard is 21,5" which is 4x the size of a 10" tablet.
The FamilyBoard gives a 2 week overview so the whole family can plan ahead and see things before they happen.
