    Back button

    iPads need a back button like the one found on my Android phone. For example, I clicked on a photo in this forum to view an image of somebody's backside protector skin and I had no way to get back into the forum. I shut the app down, but whenever I clicked on the icon to open the forum app, it kept opening up to the picture again. I finally had to shut the iPad down and do a total restart to get it to go away.

    Maybe it's an with this app and not the device?

    I don't understand. When you're viewing the photo and you want to return to the app, double-tap the Home button to open the multi-task bar and click on the app icon. Works for me every time.

    The back button in the app is at the top left.

    Edit: Hmm, just had a think about this.......if when you view a pic through the forum all the buttons disappear (is this what you mean?), just tap the picture and the buttons will reappear as if by magic!

    No they did not. It was like the app was stuck.

    Another need for a back button. I was reading a post on the forum and wanted to forward via email to my wife. In the process of trying to do it I couldn't go back into the post I was reading.

    I don't understand this, if I go to share>email the email shows over the top of the thread, when I finish writing the email and click send the email disappears and I am left looking at exactly the same screen that I was looking at before I pressed share........how is this different in your case?

    Just for clarity......are you using the IPF app to view the forum or safari on the iPad?
