Discussion Android Tablet for panel control

Hi all,
I'm a complete newbie at all this (only logged about 22 hours so far...).
But I have seen a few threads about using tablets as control panels rather than keyboards.
I was interested in the 'Panelsapp.io' idea, but that doesn't seem to be available on the Play Store anymore.
I wanted to use an old Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 tablet.
Can anyone recommend an alternative way to use this as a panel control that doesn't require a degree in computer sciences to set up....?
I know as much about tablet architecture as I do about ballet (not much...).
Thanks and O7.

Game Glass, or Roccat would do the trick, I'm sure their are others but Game glass is a bit limited and Roccat would require a bit of a set up since it was discontinued but you can still find copies out there.

Many thanks.
I also saw something about Touch Down, so I’ll check that out too.
 
I like the idea of using extra screens to make my time with Elite feel more immersive, as you can see below.

To use your tablet as a control panel there is Panels (Link), Touch Portal (Link) and newly released GameGlass (Link). One warning with using a 7" Tablet is that it displays only in portrait with Gameglass. 8" and above you can use landscape mode.

 
gameglass does have some limits on android version supported. so far 7 (Nougat) and above offically supported. that does count out any old equipment you may have handy... looks at several 4+ tablets he has handy

Thanks. I found the support list on their website. So I rooted my old Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and upgraded it to Android 7.1 (followed a couple of YouTube videos and, amazingly, it all worked). Now GameGlass works ok.

Nice setup, would you mind identifying the app on the left hand monitor please? Are both the tabets and the top monitor all using Touch Panel? o7
