Android Using AOL on a Android Wi-Fi tablet

I currently use AOL on a desktop pc with no problems. I purchased a new Toshiba Android 4.0 tablet and want to run AOL software on it. How do I get AOL loaded on the tablet? I tried to just go to aol.com from my browser and clic mail then sign in but the format of my mail page is different in a bad way. Awkward to use. It does work but very awkward and I can't find a way to attach a photo to an email.
Any help would be appreciated.

As far as I know, you can't run Windows program directly on Android. As for your browser issue, have you tried going into Settings > Advanced, then check the box by "Always Request Desktop Site"? Another option to replicate desktop look and feel on your tablet is use remote desktop software. My Asus tablet comes w/ Splashtop and with that I can remote control my desktop while I'm on the same network.

I'll check out the settings you mentioned. Will that Splashtop work away from my home network if I connect the tablet by WiFi thru another network?

Yes, it's doable, but that requires a subscription. From the Support page at Splashtop's site:

c) For Android tablet, the Purchase page will not be available unless your tablet and Streamer are on different networks. When you see a 'satellite' icon on your Streamer, clicking the Streamer will bring you to the Purchase page which contains two buttons, for a 1-month subscription or a 1-year subscription.​
7. Click on the Buy button. You will see a screen similar to the one pictured below. Two options for subscription are available: "1 month $0.99" and "1 year $9.99" ($U.S. Dollars). Click the one you prefer, and input your Apple account password if the App Store verification box pops up.

Two ways to do it. download directly from googleplay (preferred method) OR download from googleplay onto a PC and copy the android executable over using an unlocked phone. (more tricky and you have to know what you're doing.)
