Just wondering if anyone has found Biblia viable on an iPad. I am asking mainly out of curiousity.

Not really. I cannot get the reader pans to scroll.

Have to agree with Kevin. When running the "mobile" mode, it is minimalistic in what is displayed. If run in "standard" mode it looks a lot nicer, but the scroll doesn't work. If that were to get fixed, I think it would be at least viable.

Correction... just got the scroll to work in "standard" mode. Have to swipe it with two fingers on a diagonal. A little clunky, but seems to work. I'll have to play with it a bit when I have a little more time.

I just spent the last 5 minutes trying to reply to this thread from my iPad... but alas the widget for text entry won't work with Safari on ipad...

ANYWAY. Yes, using TWO fingers one can scroll inside the "app" instead of scrolling safari itself. One shouldn't have to perform any diagonal motions....

Good find. Curious from the developers, why is this the way to do it and not just a regular scrolling with a finger? Sure there is a technical reason, so if its not too technical I'd be interested to learn why.

That's a better question for Apple developers; we have no control over it. Mobile safari doesn't allow you to scroll a div with 1 finger. I suspect it's because it could make it confusing for a user trying to scroll the whole page, but that's just a guess.

You are correct on the diagonal part. After reading your post, I dig some digging and discovered that there is a setting in my primary iPad bowser (Atomic Web) where two fingers swiped up, takes you to the homepage. That's why it would only scroll for me when swiping on diagonal. I removed the defunct setting in Atomic and now I can swipe up or down with two fingers to get it to scroll.
