In the process of making THIS site and some others that are being planned for the future as Ipad friendly/usable as possible, we are in need of a few owners that would be willing to do some testing for us.

With Ipads and new tablets coming out, screen layouts and embedded videos are in issue. We are hoping to make this system as accessible as possible, but we don’t want to make live changes here that might break things for the others in the process. The target for the tests will be Microsoft Surface Tablets (released in the next 30 days), Ipads, Tablet users,

If you are interested in assisting (We will be make changes in a dummy test site) when we get to that specific test point, let us know.

I’m pretty sure that the Nook Tablet and the Kindle Fire are both Android based.

I have a kindle fire if you want to give that a shot.

Tapatalk is a separate item which already works well – that is more for Smart Phone users.

Android is easy as it supports FLASH, which is how most site do video. Ipad’s and other tablets don’t support flash and need a HTML5 player. We are working on making the site look as good on an Ipad/Tablet as it does on a desktop.

Sorry, try to stay away from Apple products.  I’m an Android user.  But, I love the fact that you all are always trying to make this site better!

We have and iPad 2, iPhones and a Kindle Fire. I know you said the Kindle’s wouldn’t be an issue since they support Flash, but we’d be happy to help with the iPads or iPhones.

Thanks gang…. for everyone’s offers. Once we get done fixing the downloads section, I will get started on the Video support and table site stuff.

Hope to have something to test in about 2 weeks or so.
