I'm just back from a week on the road during which I stayed connected via an iPad 2...
I could (and did) post on these forums, but I:
Could not access any formatting features during message entry. The editor box was plain, with none of the controls you see above it when accessing the forum from a computer.
Could not edit a post once submitted. I was presented with a message to the effect, "your device can only add content, it cannot edit it".
I'm surprised to see that the Jive forum software, which is brand new as of a few months ago, BARELY supports iPad access, even though the Safari implementation on the iPad is quite complete. I can edit posts on Safari on PC, so it's not a Safari issue.
What's up with this? I'd really like to have better / more complete access to the forums while on the road. The iPad itself is certainly more than capable of operating all the fancy features. Does the forum software think the iPad has too small a display or is underpowered? Think again...
Don't look now, but tablet popularity is exploding. You might want to put some effort into making this work a little better really soon now.
If you're doing any traveling and want to remain connected, an iPad 2 is a Must Have in my opinion, even with the aforementioned limitation of the Jive forum software. I found it overdelivered in every way.
