    The page numbers drive me nuts. The best iPad forum I have used yet is avsciences one. Just toto avsforum.com and let it install it's own app when it asks, it's far better then any web based forum like this.

    The page numbers are a pain!

    As tablets get more popular, I think websites will begin to be created for them. There is a way to detect what type of device the user has, and change the site to work with it. But tablets aren't really "mobile" like a phone. Eventually sites will be developed specifically for tablets.

    What I hate is when you go to click on a topic, and get the poster profile instead. Very annoying.

    You're right! The iPad probably should fall into the same category as the iPhone, web page design-wise.

    Yes you could like on any other site but this site is dedicated to iPad alone. Shouldn't it be also configured for it?

    I am on my iPad now and I can pinch the entire site including writing this response.

    I too do not mind it the way it is. Expand and pinch. Would much rather have it this way then a mobile site.

    Take a look at the iPad user guide...it's a web app that looks exactly like an iPad app.

    That's exactly my point. It's not the workings of the site that would benefit a change it's the design, meaning visual aspect. Bigger icons and drop down menus that look like an app's are easily done.
