As a startup, we have limited resources to test all Android tablets with our learning system at a fast rate. Below is a list of many popular tablets we have tested and confirmed do work with Square Panda. If your tablet is not listed below we cannot confirm it will in fact work. However, knowing we have not sent each and every tablet on the market through our testing process, yours may work with our system and we aren’t aware of this yet. Please feel free to send us your tablet model number if you have found it to work with Square Panda and we will add it to the “Customer-reported compatible device list.”

These questions directly relate to the iPad and are not caused by the Square Panda playset. You can find more information on the Apple website.
The first thing to try is to close your game and power off the playset in order to restart them:
- • Close/kill game – double click your iPad’s Home button, swipe up the game to close it.
- • Power off playset – this may happen automatically if it's not paired to a game. Press and hold down the power button to manually power on/off the playset.
If the above procedure does not establish the connection try to turn off your Bluetooth and restart your iPad:
- • Turn off Bluetooth from Control Center, or by going to Settings > Bluetooth and turning off the switch.
- • Reboot your iPad by holding the Home button and the Power button until you see the Apple logo. Turn the iPad off and back on and turn on Bluetooth. Now it should pair with the playset.
When your iPad’s Mute is on, you won't hear audio for notifications, alerts, game audio, or sound effects like keyboard clicking. You'll still hear audio playback in your music, podcasts, and videos.
To unmute your iPad’s sound, do the following per your iPad model:
- • On your iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, or iPad mini 4, you'll find Mute and Rotation Lock in the Control Center. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open the Control Center.
- • From the Control Center, tap Mute to unmute sound.
These iPad models have a Side Switch on the upper right side of the device, above the volume buttons:
- • iPad Air, iPad (3rd generation), and iPad (4th generation).
- • iPad mini 2 and iPad mini 3.
- • Unlock the Side Switch to unmute certain sounds.
These questions directly relate to Android and are not caused by the Square Panda playset. You can find more information on the Google website.

- • Click the “Apps” icon
- • Click “Settings”
- • Select the app
- • Select ”Permissions”
- • Turn on permission for Location
Google TTS (or Text-to-speech) is a program for Android tablets in the Google Play Store. We encourage you to download this program as it enables the chameleon in the Lagoon game to pronounce thousands of letter combinations. Installing Google TTS offers the best gameplay and phonics experience for this game. Google TTS can be downloaded from Google Play here: Google Text-to-speech
If the parent uses the same login on multiple tablets all gameplay is properly saved for each player.
- The letters have been damaged or are dirty which prevents them from seating properly in the playset. Clean the letters with a damp cloth and dry them thoroughly.
- The letter slots may need cleaning. Watch out especially for crumbs or small debris which may prevent the letters from sitting flat in the letter slot.
- Playset may need calibration. Make sure the playset is clear of all letters before calibrating.
- If the letters still read incorrectly after going through the above steps please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will replace them.
