problems on AAC with iPad (iOS 5)

i like to answer questions here with my iPad but formatting texts is not possible. line breaks are not recognized like in this post. also i cannot enter comments since characters i type on the virtual keyboard are simply not counted. is it just me who has this problems and there is a workaround?

Hi Dieter,

You're not the only one. We have a couple open feature requests around making mobile Answering a better experience:

  1. Create mobile version of Answers
  2. Cannot add comment from iPad

We've got a couple things to do before this (namely fix SEO and spam), but this will be on our roadmap in the next couple months.

Only after answering 200 questions on my iPad i discovered that i can use at least html tags to format the output better.

Wow, 200 huh!? I'll revisit the mobile version for Answers. It'd probably be fun to build. Any quick improvements we could make, in the meantime?

It would already be a great improvement if a [p] tag (paragraph tag) is automatically entered on hitting the return key. Can't write that in angles since it'd create a paragraph ;)

yeah, it took really a way too long until i noticed thay ;)
