    Just noticed with iOS9.2 that the auto-correct engine was enhanced..................to type even MORE things your never intended to say!!!!! HA....ha!

    Just always proof-read all you type B4 posting. With the enhanced the spellchecking and grammar check engines these days, there is no excuse for misspelled words and grammar errors. But I still get them if I do not proof-read, and even miss them at times, especially on the teeny iPhone6 screen.


    That s----l-------o------------w typing thing happens ever so often and ONLY on this site. And only on the iPad. I am used to instant visual screen feedback when typing (I do not look at the keyboard and can type 80WPM) and that delay just kills me.

    It used to happen on my iPad for what reason I have no idea then after one of my updates it stopped locking up. I used to have to exit then go back in and auto restore and it would bring me back to where I was. Btw It didn't matter if I was using a Bluetooth keyboard or not it just locked up. I didn't make any changes except keeping up with the updates.

    I use an IPad and with this site only, sometimes it will post ads on the entire screen where there is print. Makes it very difficult to see what forum is what and topics are but when you enter a thread, everything is normal.

    They have an integrated keyboard and weren't designed to be used with a Bluetooth keyboard. Mine work flawlessly but I gave up on the aftermarket keypads. Love my 6 plus too. Hardly touch a pc anymore.

    This happens to me every couple of days, exactly as he described and only with this site.

    Well, Apple makes a wireless keyboard for the iPad/iPhone and other Apple products. I have one. It used to lock up. iOS9.2 installed now and will see if any different. 8 still did it occasionally.

    But the Apple brand keyboard is designed to work......not like some of that 3rd party cheap garbage people seem to want to use. Ya gets what ya pays for!

    And I cannot type 80WPM on that stupid on-screen keyboard. I hate those things.

    I am using an iPad Air and have no problems with the site, as yet. I mostly use the on screen keyboard but, also GREATLY prefer my Anker Bluetooth Keyboard.

    I have no problems with iPad. I never used my cheap, trashy Bluetooth keyboard with CB. I'm going to give it a try just to see if it malfunctions. BTW, I dislike the TapaTalk app.

    I have this issue with another site catered to my State all the time on two different iPads.
    Never on this site

    I have exactly the same issue on both my iPad and my iPhone. On the phone it makes the site practically unreadable, and a cold reboot doesn't usually fix it.

    Just because a handful of people on the Internet share an opinion doesn't prove it is correct.

    I have never had to do that! You should be able to turn off the password stuff in your Safari settings in General.

    That would be a PITA.

    These lock-ups are not timeouts
    Maybe I misstated what i meant. OS has to keep track of BT, wifii, screen, etc. sometimes it gets mixed up in the process que and locks up. IIRC, ALL other browsers actually are wrappers around Safari, not a real stand alone browser. Chrome also has some spyware they are supposed to remove. Last eve I got a 'server not available - 505?' splash but the site worked fine. Using an old Ipadair, never cold boot except for updates. Actually this site runs faster on my PC than most others. Got the old laptop out with wireshark to check my wifi traffic after I got sent a new router from fios. Won't let me use MY wep2 password. Gives 100mb traffic but connections are slower.
    Whatever!

    A lot of sites do not work well with touchscreen devices. If I have any serious work to do (i.e. other than mindless childish games, reading the news or books, text messaging, etc), I use a *real* computer (laptop or desktop). I've had UNIX machines go *years* without needing a reboot. Let's see your PC / iPad / Android / Apple-excrement do *that*. Yeah, I know that Apple O/S now has a flavor of UNIX/Linux underneath it all, but they screwed it up.

    Posting simple replies to site like this is painful, but possible with a touch screen device, but if you need to edit the quote, it can get even more painful. I'll often revisit my replies when I get home and at a real PC so that I can trim down what was quoted or to post links or photos.
    When you fill out your income tax forms at the end of the year, look and see how much money you have given the
    government throughout the year. Then, take a moment to ponder -- has the government done $X worth of
    stuff FOR you or TO you this year? I tend to believe the latter...

    This is only the case if you're using an internet browser. Use a forum reader, like Tapatalk, and all the frustration goes away. No more zooming in and out to read posts. No more advertisements and clutter on the screen. I'm at the point where if a site isn't TapaTalk native then I'm not a member.

    I tried TapaTalk... Didn't particularly like it... Not sure if I hated it more than I hated just using a browser though... My investment brokerage site has an Android and iPad app. It does not have all the features that I need as compared to their website. I also do not like the look and feel of it, so I stay with the website. Their solution was to change the website to make it more difficult to use.
