I am having issues loading pages from BGG on my iPad. Anyone else? Just freezes on partial load.

Works ok on mine .. not the best app.

Loading the library can take a long time if you have alot of games. It takes about 3-4 minutes to load mine ...sometimes more.

Probably a Blackberry Playbook would load faster ...

I was having issues earlier with the URL being resolved to the IP address and me getting logged out. Better now.

I've been having issues with this for a long time. Just to make sure everyone understands, I think the OP (and myself) are talking about viewing BGG.com using Safari on iPad. When loading a page (seems like any page), you'll get enough to fill the screen, then it just stops. Sometimes I have to refresh a few times to get the full page to load.

I get that on my iPhone sometimes too. Changing orientation often fixes it; still annoying though.

The easiest solution is to zoom in and zoom out.

Has happened to me as well (safari on iPad)
Mostly I just click the back and forward buttons and then I usually get the complete page. I will give zooming a try next time it happens.

Not a problem on mine. Admittedly it has happened about three times, but I have been using my pad for three months now.

Just downloaded the BGG app and gave it a spin, and frankly I don't see any reason to use this when I can get the full BGG experience via Safari. I use an Ipad, but maybe it's great for the smaller screens on phones?

Safari works fine (although I do have to zoom a lot due to the small text).
The app is crap.
