I use an iPad often to access my files on Hosted, but usually just to look things up. It is a little difficult to work on from the iPad mini. I also have an iPad Pro large screen and that is easier, but any real work is done from my computer

Of course it isnt optimized for tablet devices. You need to know this before signing up to hosted.

Thank you Kris, your info is very helpful. I have been using hosted since it launched, and was thinking that if an iPad  worked well it would be worth the investment for travelling. Will stick with the computer. Cheers

Hi kevin it states in their information page that you can run your business from anywhere on a PC, Mac or Tablet. It used to work fine from my I Pad but lately the keyboard has disappeared and it is very difficult to use from it. Not sure why they changed it but they need to add the keyboard feature back instead of having to use the clipboard all the time.

Hi Liam it might state that. It's optimized for a desktop. I wouldn't do if.

  3 finger tap on iPad will bring the keyboard back, at least it works on mine

Thanks Kris, I used chrome on my iPad and it worked fine, just seems to be safari.

Hi Kevin I use my iPad probably 90 percent of the time as I can’t get to our desktop when I have to do most of my work (the joys of having 4 kids) and I normally do not have a problem, I just tried chrome on it and it worked fine so must be a safari issue.

I think it had to do with IOS 13, glad it worked for you
