iPad Compatibility?

Looking through my analytics a surprising number of my visitors seem to be using an iPad to reach my site. My question is - how will this product work on the iPad? Will it be fully compatible?

Hi Julie,

The iPad uses a version of Apple's Safari browser, so if your site renders well in Safari, it will likely look good on the iPad. Also, it's worth mentioning that the iPad does not support Adobe Flash, so if you use Flash anywhere on our site, either for design elements or for multimedia content, those elements will not be accessible on the iPad (or the iPhone, for that matter).

Quicktime, yes. Shockwave requires a browser plugin, similar to Flash, and is unsupported on the iPad.

I know somebody had asked about the iPad, but what about the iPhone or the iTouch?

The iPhone and iPod Touch use a version of the same Safari browser, so the compatibility issues are the same -- Flash/Shockwave are unsupported, but Quicktime is supported.

However, the difference of course is the size of the screen, and some sites will provide a mobile version of their site, with a theme that provides better usability for iPhone/iPod users. The Mobile Tools module (http://drupal.org/project/mobile_tools) is useful for providing a customized version of the site to mobile browsers.

Would it work on an iPhone? I understand the iPhone doesn't use flash.

I'll just quote Peter's previous answer:

The iPhone and iPod Touch use a version of the same Safari browser, so the compatibility issues are the same -- Flash/Shockwave are unsupported, but Quicktime is supported.

you can retrieve password by yourself. There are programs to do that. For example http://www.passwordmanagers.net/resources/Check-This-iPhone-File-Manager... Iphone Music Manager
I used it few times.it's free and it works as good as can be expected. The main thing is to stop using the external hard disk until you use this tool, and avoid writing any files to it
