Anyone viewed Hubpages on a Tablet?

    I just splurged on the Nook Tablet for my wife's birthday on the weekend and am impressed with the little gadget - does everything I need it to do and is several hundred dollars cheaper than the iPad!

    Once I managed to wrestle the gadget from my wife's fingers the first thing I did (of course) was to check out Hubpages - I was very suprised at how good it actually looks on the tablet - I expected it to be all squished up, but it actually looks good and is pretty readable.

    What does everyone else think about HP on the tablet?

    BTW does anyone know if there's a HP gadget for the Nook?

      I love Hubpage's on tablet devices, I have the iPad though. It find it easier to read and take in what I am looking at relaxed with the tablet rather than sat up at my computer. Tried writing an article on it once though, took a very long time

      I'm actually on a tablet right now. It's great apart from the fact that you can't edit hubs. I'm about ready to ditch my laptop and just take a small fold-up keyboard on trips, but Hubpages is the ONE place I use where I can't do work when I'm away!  You can write and edit comments and forum posts, but Hubs in edit mode are read-only. Odd, because the sites that do let me edit have much more complicated widgets and controls for content-building.

      Of course, I make typos when using a tablet, so that's not so great. Hence needing a fold-up keyboard for real work.

        I read HubPages on my iPad all the time and love it. But as Greekgeek says, hubs can't be edited. That's a real drawback. The ability to edit on the iPad is probably #1 on my HP wishlist.

          Mine also, but it's not under their control.  They use TinyMCE for the hub editor and Tintmce says they  can't support iPad because Apple doesn't give them the tools they need to do so.

          It would be really great to have an alternative editor for tablets  even if it was more clumsy and lacked some features. 

          I wonder if they have the same issue with Android..

            Ayup. Doesn't work there either.

            See http://drupal.org/node/961522 for a geekish discussion.

              Hubpages can be edited in android.

              Wordpress posts can be edited with android both with a web browser and the wordpress app

              I use miren browser with the user agent set to chrome

              I did not notice that the comment from your link "said renders, but keyboard wont come up" my android device has a physical keyboard so I didn't think to check.

      aha, for someone viewing Hubpage's on a tablet like that. Their connection can't be as strong as it used to be

    I've been interacting with HubPages using an iPad since April 2010.  I can everything except write Hubs.

    I just tried it and was able to edit a hub using my Kindle Fire... Good to know but I don't see myself using the Fire for that.

    I use an android and cant edit my hubs. Everything else but that.
    I havent tried editing my wordpress sites cos i'm scared i may mess things up lol
    It's great though and better than lugging my laptop around.
    Major cons- no spell check!
