    Hey all,

    I'm sure some of you folks who have iPads would love to be able to edit hubpages when you're not near your PCs right? I know I do, so I tried to find a solution...and I have found one!

    Go to the app store and find the App: Atomic Browser.
    There is a free version, but I'm using the paid one as it's well worth it for the extra features. There is an option under settings called "Identify Browser As". Go there and select Safari Desktop.

    Then go and edit a text capsule in your hub, you will now get the familiar formatting options. You must select the HTML source editor option on the far left, and hey presto, you will get the basic HTML text editing page. Mind you, there is no way that I've found how you can change the fonts and other formatting, unless you are using the HTML editor and tag in the basic code in the text (I haven't tried this yet as I am not familiar with HTML). But you can edit the text, so I hope that helps?

    If anyone else would like to add to this, please feel free to share the knowledge!

      Scrap this post!

      I discovered how to do the same thing in the standard iPad Safari browser by simply un-checking the new text editor option under your profile settings in "my account"!

      I posted an updated Hub on it now.

      ps: the Atomic Browser is still worth the money to buy though, best browser on the iPad hands down!
