    Really? I heard that while it's pretty cool - it's very slow. Your observations?

    My best / most used app is Office2 HD. I have all of my active files / date on the cloud in my mobile me account. Very cool to access and make changes, etc. No syncing at all.

    I have had no problems with speed. I love the tab's, quick bookmarks, and the ability to change the ID of the browser. Help's if I am visiting a site which is detecting as mobile, and I need the full experience.

    So I dropped the buck for Atomic browser - works very well. 2 problems though:
    1. I can't open up my banks website (Wells Fargo) as the browser is unsupported - Safari is.
    2. I can't even reply to a post in THIS forum - it gives me a greed out box. I'm typing this on my iPad in Safari. Too bad - I hope they fix some of this.

    @DavidNM. I currently do not have my iPad. I sold it and am waiting on my 3G to arrive in a few days. But make sure you are logged in of course, and if that does not work, try changing the ID of the browser. I never had any problems with any of my sites, including this one.

    You have to have the full version and then go into the setting page and look for Identify Browser As and then select one of the different browsers listed.

    I am also have the problem posting here and on another forum that uses the Vbulletin software. I am logged in on both and have tried setting Atomic to Safari, IE6, IE7 and Firefox with the same result on both forums. I just sent the Atomic Browser folks an e-mail about this.

    Hmmm, maybe something has changed either in Atomic or Vbullentin sense I got rid of my WIFI iPad. I know it used to work just fine. The Atomic guys seem pretty good about fixing bugs though. So maybe just a minor setback.

    I was using Tapatalk to view the forums, when I read this. So loaded up Atomic to try replying, and am posting this from Atomic, full version, with no problem.

    My only complaint with it is that I wish the controls on the bottom were at the top.

    Yea, I thought the same. But then I kinda got used to it and now it just feels natural. I used to complain about the lack of a bookmark bar in the old version. But then they changed the way the bookmarks are viewed and I like it, now that it does not take you away from the page you are viewing.

    Unless I've forgotten something, I don't think I've changed any of the settings other than color from what they were on install. And I don't think that would affect anything :) I've added bookmarks, saved pages, changed the color and that is all. I've been using it for the forum ever since I posted the previous post and have had no problems. Will look at settings again but almost certain that that is all I've changed.

    After going through all the settings, I noticed one other change I made. I have it set as Mobile Safari-iPad, instead of default.

    Interesting... I changed my setting to Mobile Safari-iPad and can now post here. Unfortunately the forum that I use most (a BBQ forum) automatically switches to the mobile style sheet in Vbulletin when Atomic is set to any of the mobile browser choices :(. The main reason I want Atomic is to be able to change the browser type to get away from that :confused:
