I often use my iPad for checking in on hubpages and other various networks that I belong to. However I have found that I am unable to work on my hubs with my iPad. I don't really know what the glitch is. I am guessing it is coming from Apple's side however it would be great if hubpages could work around this or come up with an iPad app that would allow me to work on my hubs from my iPad.
Can I use HubPages on my mobile phone?
The HubPages website is optimized for mobile browsing and limited interaction, such as uploading photos, status updates, posting in the Forums, commenting, and asking questions.
HubPages also has a mobile app for the iPhone, and we hope to roll out versions for other popular mobile platforms in the future. The current iPhone app has robust functionality for the Feed (post and comment on status updates, Hubs, Forums, etc.), Notifications and Stats (approve Comments and Fan Mail, ask/answer Questions, and monitor earnings), Hub Hopping (discover and rate new Hubs), and uploading photos. You can download the iPhone app from the App Store.
Yeah, I use my iPad for a lot of stuff here and it is great. I'm just saying it would be nice to actually be able to work on my hubs a little. I can't seem to get the text to work when creating a hub with my iPad. I don't know about the iPhone stuff. I use it a little but for very basic stuff. The iPad is more or less my laptop. I tend to use it more than my desktop. Like I said though, the problem is probably on Apple's side. I have found a lot of basic functions on many different sites that simply will not work with it.
Me, too, Cameron!
As you have found, currently the HubTool does not work on the iPad. We do have someone on our engineering team working on this right now. If it's relatively simple and straighforward, you will soon be able to edit your Hubs on your iPad.
Stay tuned, and I will update this thread when/if there is progress.
Thank you for letting me know. I really do use my IPad alot and it would be increadable if I was able to edit my hubs from it. I hope everything works out.
I look forward to it. I would really like this feature!
This is something thats been on the cards for HP HQ for quite a significant amount of time (scroll through and find some old requests from previous forums about this)
Its the PC/MAC vs mobile issue.
With PC desktops, laptops, Macs etc it is relatively straight forward and pretty much a non issue to use HubPages on, its a real HTML5 easy format to work with.
The issue is when you go mobile. HTML5 and other technical aspects for using internet interfaces and tecnologies are not quite 'fully matured' on mobile platforms. Not just for iPhones/iPads but for other smartphones and tablets too.
I personally have an iPhone, but I use often a Samsung Galaxy Tab and a desktop PC using Windows Vista. So I can hub with one out of the three technologies currently/
In the meantime, there are apps that let you run your desktop from your idevice! I use antacea easy connect which is simple and works great- no crashing and stuff. You buy the app, download the software, and voila! You can work on hubpages if you are connected to your computer over the internet.
I run an alternative browser on my IPad and have full-functionality with the interface except for Photo uploads. If I want to add a photo to a Hub I can add one that is already in my account, but it won't work for some other photo on my iPad.
This suggestion is partially resolved. You can edits to most capsules in Hubs from the iPad. You cannot, however, upload pictures. Currently, the Photo Capsule relies on Adobe Flash which doesn't work on iPad.
In short, some progress, but not to full supported yet.
Hey, folks, I created a Hub from scratch on my iPad (on which I'm typing now), and figured out a way to get pictures to work. See the newest hub on my profile, if you're curious.
Micki: Two things are not working in the Text Capsule.
1. the LINK buttons' popup pane. Flash problems, maybe?
2. Copy and paste. You can't select a chunk of text, copy it, and paste it somewhere else, nor can you paste anything from elsewhere. (In fact, that may be the problem with the link button; it's not letting me paste OR type a URL.)
Other capsules that let you enter a URL seem to work fine.
Bravo on giving us the basics. With this, we can do just about everything we need while the code gurus bang on Flash for the tricky bits.
So now we can leave our laptops at home!
It might be a fun way to record a travel diary while on a trip, eh?
GreekGeek, great news! I'm curious how you got photos to upload?
Would you mind posting these two issues to the Report a Technical Problem forum? This way, Matthew sees it and files a bug report?
Micki: the "Upload" function in the Photo Capsule isn't working on an iPad, but the "Import" function DOES work!
So if you have some way to upload a photo from your iPad to anywhere on web -- I use an app called FTP Client Pro and upload pictures to my own website -- and can copy the uploaded photo's URL, you can import it into a Hub using the "import" tab.
And yes, I'll do a write-up of what I found with my experimenting and give it to the coding gurus. It was fun playing around!
Just posting an update that copy/paste in the text capsule now works on the iPad.
The Links Capsule relies on flash, per your other request.
I think we've done what we can for now to get Hub creation and editing functional from the iPad until there is a major overhaul of how the HubTool works. As such, I'm going to mark this thread as "Implemented," but if you have new ideas or suggestions for cool things to do on the iPad, do start a new thread.

I have been cropping my photos before I upload them and some of them upload easily. However, some of them spin and spin and spin and spin ad nauseam. I have saved the capsule with the uploading photo and when I open...

I was just on my account page and some hubs are listed in purple. What does this mean? Thanks.
