Huh? I've been accessing this site (and posting) from my iPad since day 1. This forum has been working great with the Safari web browser already on the iPad.

I'm sure the forum is fine on the iPad. But the screen layout just doesn't work too well on the much smaller iPhone display.

I just downloaded the new app, and it works well. I haven't yet found the equivalent of the 'new posts' tab. Also my ignore list doesn't seem to work on the iPhone app.

But it's great to have smart phone apps at all, so no real complaints!

There is a 'button at the bottom of your screen that says 'current'. It loads latest threads and while it's somewhat limited it achieves the same thing (mostly).

I'll make a note for the software developer about the ignore issues.

Thanks Janet!

This is easier and looks better than using the browser on my iPod touch.

Oh, boy, now we can read posts that say "Sent from my iPhone".

I'm sure I'll be just as impressed with the spelling & grammar as if it had come from a real keyboard.

Thanks, Janet and Andy.

FWIW, I was able to access the above android link but could not download from there. I did download it from my android phone directly by searching in the Android Market directly. Seems to work well on first glance.

I installed the new app on my iPad. Works great. I love the ability to load a picture directly from my iPad photo library. Good job everyone!
