The Table Android FAQ

How much free space do I need to install The Table Android application on my device?

We recommend having about 2GB of free space during installation. The amount of free space needed varies depending on which languages are downloaded. The application itself will take up about 800MB during install, however, once installed, it only takes up about 200MB of space. The English language, which is the largest infobase, takes up an additional 400 MB. Each additional language will add to this total.

The Table app is prompting me to login to The Table Cloud Backups. What are The Table Cloud Backups, and why should I login?

The Table Cloud Backups feature allows you to backup your notes and highlights to the VGR Cloud, so they are never lost. This means if you get a new phone, you will still have access to access to any notes and highlights you previously made.

The Table Cloud Backup feature is a system that has several parts:

  • The app on your phone or tablet
  • Your account at branham.org
  • The actual storage of your backups on the VGR servers.

These three components work together to store and retrieve your files. The Table app must be linked to your VGR account, which then securely links The Table app to your own backups.

To use this feature, you must first make sure you have the latest Table app update installed. Once you have the latest Table app, you will then log in to your branham.org account through The Table app. This will allow you access to The Table Cloud Backup features: Backup and Restore From Backup.

The backup feature saves a copy of your notes and highlights to the VGR server. (You can choose to either backup automatically in the background, or manually select a button to create a backup.)

The restore from backup feature allows you to pull backups down from the server and load them in The Table app.

For more information on using The Table Cloud Backups, please see: The Table Cloud Backups.

I got a new a new Android device. Can I transfer my notes and highlights from my old device to the new one?

Yes, you can transfer your notes and highlights across devices. Simply login to The Table Cloud Profile using your branham.org account and create a backup of your notes and highlights on your old device. After you have created a backup, login to the same branham.org account on the new device and restore the backup from the old device.

For more information on using The Table Cloud Backups, please see: The Table Cloud Backups.

Can I download additional languages through The Table Android application?

Yes, additional languages can be downloaded through The Table Android application.

Select the language drop down menu at the top of the document screen where you will find a more option. Select more to see which languages are offered through The Table app.

Can I play translated audio from The Table Android application?

Yes, The Table Android application allows you to play translated audio.

Please see The Table Android: How To Play Translated Audio for detailed instructions on how to do so.

I loaded sermon audio files onto my device, but the application is not finding them.

The Table will only work with the most current VGR version of the sermon. These can be found here:

http:branham.org/MessageAudio

http://themessage.com/en/sermonsdownload

A good source of the sermon audio files is our Table micro SD card. It contains all 1205 sermons, and comes in both 32GB and 64GB.

If your device has an SD card slot, all you would have to do is insert the card into the device and the application should find it, and play directly from the card.

If you don’t have an SD card slot, you will need a device with 64GB of memory, to be able to load the entire contents of the microSD card. (A 32GB device will work, but it doesn’t give you much room for other data on your device.) Should you have a device with less memory, you will need to put a limited number of sermons on your device and swap them out as needed.

I do not have internet at home. How often should I update The Table?

We recommend updating every month or two. We try to continuously improve it.

If you are having an issue with The Table, you should check for updates. There may be a patch that fixes it.

The Table is not loading properly. How do I fix it?

For most problems with The Table you can find answers in two help files: The Table Android User Guide, and for troubleshooting, The Table Android:Advanced Help. These files are located under the Help icon on Agapao and Hero tablets.

I like to print quotes. How do you recommend I print quotes from The Table?

Use the Windows version or the MacOS version to print quotes. It is easier to print from a computer.

Another option is to copy quotes from The Table app into a text document, where you can format them, and print them out using a printer with bluetooth capability. The text document can also be emailed to your computer to be printed.
