I am finally able to views ost graphs on my ipad. Its done via a program called "always connect on pc" I purchased it from the app store. Admittedly, it is a bit slow, but hey its better than nothing. I hope this helps. I think it is also compatible with samsung galaxy.

maybe they are, or isn't .. who knows .. but then what platform ?? iOS, Win8, Android (which version ?? 2,3,4 or 5) .. what of black berry .. smart phone of tablet .. the cry of 'give us an app' is nice an easy .. but actual reality a spot more ..

personally I would wait for html5 to be standardised and rather develop in that ..

It's high time OST developed a program for tablet users. I cannot fault ost's service thus far but I feel that sot should get with the times and develop an app for us tablet users. I am sure there are fair number of us out there.

No need to get so defensive Simon. It is a legitimate gripe. My account with forex.com caters for my iPad so why not ost? By "us" I mean galaxy and iPad users.

not defensive simple pointing out that requests that seem massively simple are not always .. glaxy tab and iPad are two totally different apps .. and that's my point, add in windows 8 tablets coming in Q4 and the BB play book .. now you have 4 apps you've built .. your glaxy app is ice cream sandwich, but what of ginger bread and jelly bean due in Q4 .. so now we have 6 apps you've built .. and then of course there are smart phones .. an app for cients means around 10 apps you have to develope .. sure the user wants them, but for a dev team it a nightmare .. hence my html5 omment, which would work across all platforms, but html5 still early days with no standards so dev teams taking a wait an see approach ..

an of course the biggest Q is why ??

Lindsay, can you trade using Team Viewer? ie, buy or sell? Or is it only for viewing?

an of course the other question is how many tablet users are there in SA (across all platforms) ?? is it a worth while market ?? would dev money not be better spent on website enhancements that benefit everybody ??
