Wabbit in ANDROID Tablet: Bigger size calculator & fonts?

Congratulations to the Author/s.
Love Wabbit!
Works great in XP desktop.

But in my new
SAMSUNG TABLET model GT-P5200
(10.1 inch screen under ANDROID 4.2.2)
,
it looks too small to use and read easily.

Above each button,
the Yellow/Orange and the Green names:
(sin, cos, e, N, O, P..., etc),
are hard to read...fonts too small.

The calculator size only fills about 85%
of the 10.1 inch Tablet screen,
with a gray, unused area around it,
(in Portrait mode).

Q:
Maybe the calculator image
could be bigger, full-screen
by
using the (unused) gray area around it?

Perhaps there is a skin
to make the calculator bigger (full screen),
and use all of the 10.1 inch screen available area?

Hope the Author or somebody can help.

btw:
I d/l the Wabbit emu for Android to my Tablet via "Google Play"
and using the ROM file from my real TI-83+ Silver Edition.

Thanks!

Hi SFer,

Glad to hear you like the software. Thanks for your feedback about the new Android app, were still working to resolve all the issues. Can you screenshot the problem you're having with the skin? I think I know what it is, but getting a visual will tell me for sure. You can take a screenshot by holding down the volume button and power button at the same time for a couple seconds.

Thanks again,
BuckeyeDude

___Hi BuckeyeDude! _ __

Thanks for that quick reply.

Below is a screen capture of Wabbitemu on my XP screen,
very similar
to what I see on the 10.1 inch screen
of my Samsung Android Tablet.

To make my question easier,
I substituted the gray area around the calculator,
with all purple color.

The question, then:
  • Since there is all that extra unused, purple space
    around the calculator,
    can you expand the calculator itself,
    so that it "touches" all the borders (left/right/bottom/top)
    of the available Tablet screen viewport?
    (i.e.: use up all that extra, unused purple space...).
That way,
the text above each calculator key,
will become larger and much easier to read...

Below is the image similar
to what I see on my 10.1 inch Tablet,
and below it,
is the ideal image with slightly larger and easier to read Wabbit keys!
(see?
the surrounding purple area has been used
to expand/zoom out the size of Wabbit...).

IMAGES:
Hope this makes sense to you, BuckeyeDude!
It would be of great visual and usability help,
to me and many others using Android tablets & phones...
