    Well since there is not an iPad app thread...has anyone tried the "desktop" app for iPad? If so how is it?

    Well there is an App thread:
    http://forums.macrumors.com/forumdisplay.php?f=133

    But as for that app, I bought it and it's ok. It does what it says it will but you're forced to use their own widgets. It's not like I can have say words with friends open and mac rumors open at the same time. I can have two browsers open but dual browser is free I believe and does the same. I also question their security measures that are in place. Is it like Opera where data is stored on their servers? Are the pages encrypted? If I fill in a form will it be protected? Since they have nothing documented about it then I will have to say most likely no.

    I deleted the app after I found I can't run my own apps side by side. It is worth ¢ just to figure that out but still. I keep dual browser on my iPad. Also, using desktop and watching forum spy move along in one frame was fine but I was unable to click on anything in forum spy and have it open.


    Do you actually have an opinion on the app? Guessing not but thought I'd ask. :cool:
