If you purchased a Samsung Galaxy Tab recently, you might be surprised that it does not run some apps in full screen mode. This is especially noticeable when playing games. The Galaxy Tab features a 1024 X 600 screen resolution which is not supported by many applications. No need to worry there is a work around that can help you.
How to run the Samsung Galaxy Tab android apps in full screen
Search for an app called Spare Parts
Download and install it
Open Spare Parts and scroll down
Look for an option called Compatibility mode
Uncheck it and then check it again
Restart your Samsung Galaxy Tab
Now again start Spare Parts, uncheck compatibility mode
Restart the device
Done, all you apps will now work in full screen. You may notice a little pixelation on some apps due to the expanded view if the app was made for a very low resolution phone.
