    Why are the apps only compatible with iPads? What if we want these on our iPhones or iPods!

  2. Doug Powell August 14, 2012

    The apps are only compatible with iPads because the content is just too small to read well on iPhones/iPods. I tried it but knew I'd get lots of complaints. Also, Android devices are far less powerful than iPads and have less memory. Still trying to fix this issue. Hopefully, I can crack it soon.

    Nice Interview!
    Thanks for having Doug Powell..

    Yeah I figured the main issue was probably that iPhones and iPods were smaller text wise. Still it would be pretty cool if you could figure out a way to make it work…for those of us without an iPad 🙂
