iPad issues

Hi everyone. Not sure who does the app for iPad but the new version is crappy compared with the old one (before everything switched to red). Not only is it harder to find everything like unread posts. But the worst thing is that the app defaults to portrait mode. Even if my iPad is in landscape and even locked in landscape mode, the app starts ok in landscape and then promptly switches to portrait mode. It's such a pita. I am now just switching to the safari to read posts. Is there nothing anyone can do to debug this iPad app?

I feel your pain!

Re: iPad issues

Try using this app instead:

Install it and add "Cruisersforum" works on iPhone, iPad, Android and WindowsPhone just fine.

Do what many of us do... use safari.

Re: iPad issues

I don't waste the space with the apps.... Safari works perfectly fine!

I wish everything worked as well as my ipad!
