Desktop Website

For some reason I can't access the desktop view of Justin.tv on my iPad. Try it guys. No matter how many times I click full site/refresh it keeps me stuck on the mobile version.

Same with twitter. Does anyone know how to access the full site and not mobile versions?

Settings | Safari | set Accept cookies to Always, end Safari on the task bar and restart Safari, you can then get to the desktop site, but you'll need flash for it to be useful...

Could be a site encoding issue. They may not have put in a way for you to opt over to the desktop version if you are on a mobile device.

For those that can access the full site, what do your safari settings look like?

I already had the cookies set to always. I even disabled and enabled it back and restarted safari like you said but I'm still stuck with the mobile site no matter how many times I click full site.

I'm always stuck with this link

There are a few websites out there that see Safari on iOS string and do not allow you to view anything other than the mobile/tablet version of that page. Very frustrating!

You could always try the JTV app. It's $4.99 though. Otherwise try the suggestions that have been listed above.

Or just use Chrome. You can use it to request the desktop version, which has never failed for me.

-FWIW, my handle is iThink_ergo_iMac. There seems to be some confusion on this issue.-
