Just a suggestion. I'd love to be in the ATS chat section, but because I'm on an IPad, I can't since it does not support java. Can this be resolved?

And I'll tackle the anti IPad crowd now...I know it's an IPad. I know it's the evil empire. I know some hate the IPad and will tell me to get a windows enabled device. But, I'd be willing to bet there are thousands on ATS that browse ATS on an IPad.

Thank you admin. Just a suggestion. Also, is there an app in the works yet?

Sorry, your browser is not Java enabled, please visit our java support pages



I'm not an expert, but when it tells me the above I'd like to believe it. So, ok....please get rid of flash

so you want the site to change a section of itself purely for the sole reason you use an ipad.








amazing.

Because I am the ONLY one on ATS that uses an IPad? Give me a break. Join the 21st century.

Yep, am an iPad user.

So there's now two of us to change it for!

Shoulder to shoulder, bro.

The entire site should change because of an Ipad? What if Ipads are not cool in 2 years, i mean how many fashion accessories really last longer than a few years?

Get rid of Java because its a security liability.

What if windows isn't cool in two years? Same deal. What is the current trend? Tablet devices. What is the biggest selling tablet? iPad. Do the math. It ain't hard.

Those that argue against apple iPad accessibility are uninformed of the trend of the past several years.

A few years? Bro, catch up with reality. Not only iPads, but iPhones. It's not a "fad". I suppose you still listen to cassettes damning the compact disc industry for their impending doom?

I'm on a macbook and it's a nightmare for me to try to open chat. If I should occasionally succeed, it's ugly and doesn't work at all. I can't see things and nothing moves well. My solution: I don't go there.

I guess Apple users have to sit at the back of the bus.

Agreed. It's frustrating.

Out of curiosity did you check if it supported Java before you bought it?

What if windows isn't cool in two years?

Windows is not "cool" and never was. It has always been a functioning OS that fulfills the needs of more people than all the other OSes do.



What is the current trend?

Exactly it is a trend that is to say it is trendy, like a fad.



Those that argue against apple iPad accessibility are uninformed of the trend of the past several years.

How am i arguing against the Ipon's accessibility? You are the one complaining that crap does not work.
This whole tablet thing is just like the PDA in the 90's. They were cool and anyone who was anyone had one. And what happened? The phones got better and replaced them.

But the PDA did not have an app store where BILLIONS of dollars have been made. Also, the PDA is nothing like the IPad, or a tablet decice. Let me guess...you do not own one? Phones will never replace the tablet. It's a very happy medium between a laptop, and a smartphone.

I have a iPhone btw....and have had several PDAs, and two cellphones.

It's clear that you do not own a tablet device, and can't see the Forest for the trees.

ETA...when was the last "fad" as you say, that DOMINATED the tech market for over five years? It isn't a fad...now the members only jacket your wearing? That's a fad.

I do not own a tablet and I would never want one especially an apple one. The Ipads are already starting to lose their ground with tablets.

ipad came out in 2010...

Just to clarify, chat is java based not flash but in any case, iOS supports neither at the current time although it does appear Java may be in the works. Read the following wiki link for more info:
Java and iOS
Good luck!
