Thanks, will do.
I've found the speed tolerable but it fails in a couple of areas - which I would assume any other flash browser would too. Firstly, because it effectively acts as the device was in the US, access to Scootle was not possible as it will only allow IP addresses from Australia. Secondly, I have part of my intranet which uses Flash and, of course, that can't be rendered using iSwifter.
An alternative, if you need to use Flash for a smallish class, might be to use some sort of remote desktop software to access a standard computer?
Please note that the Geoblocking has been removed from Scootle and you are now able to access it using Iswifter and Puffin. I can't log in using Iswifter but can using Puffin. In the few learning objects we have tried results using the learning object's functionality is variable. For example, functionality such as dragging and dropping is not working on the LOs we tried. If anyone finds LOs that do perform well using these browsers I would love to hear about them.
I tried it with ietherpad to access the editing options. It did work but was very clunky, not something I'd use with a class. We may just have to wait for html 5 to take over these web functions before they work for us on the iPad.
Hi Kel - have you seen that titanpad (a version of ether pad) now works directly on the iPad?
Thanks Jonathan, that's great news, checked it out and it works really well except for selecting text to bold, italic etc. However indenting, and bullet pointing worked really well.
iEtherpad had stated they were working towards getting it to work on the iPad but TitanPad has delivered so it has now jumped to the top of my favourite etherpad type sites.
Noticed that wikispaces now has an edit box that works on the iPad, so things are getting better.
Thanks Deon, I'll have a look. Yes - the warning is an interesting one given the lack of warning elsewhere!
