Wouldn't it be great if we could get the dashboard for our other devices? Anybody know if Neptune is working on that?

What other devices?

Apple. I like the new Apex app but the Dashboard on my PC looks nicer. I'd like to have that.

You can always run the dashboard via Safari or Chrome on your phone but there's no intention that I know of to port the Dashboard as an app to smartphones.

I set my dashboard up so it works nice on my iPad and my computer. They key for me was to set everything up left justified instead of center.

I rarely use my home computer anymore. I have a keyboard case for my iPad which turns it into a small laptop like device. I don't have to go into my home office where my computer is. Instead, my iPad is right in front of my on the coffee table. Matter of fact, even when I travel, I rarely if ever bring a laptop. I can do most everything I need to from my iPad. Having the keyboard makes the iPad so much more useful. As far as the Apex is concerned, the iPad can do anything my computer can do. The only thing that would be nice is to be able to edit the Dash Board via the iPad. Without a mouse, you can't drag the devices around the page. As such, editing the Dashboard does require the PC. Minor detail for me.

Here is a screen shot of my "Pumps" dashboard. I didn't spend much time moving stuff around and could have done better but it looks reasonably nice on my iPad.

Here's my dashboard using iPad , just go to your iPad browser and type the URL you created to access your apex via Internet

Tried to acces but safari would not bring it up. I looked at my phone's connection and copied that IP address into it but wouldn't bring it up. I see yours looks like a name and not an ip. Where can I find the URL?

Edit reason....I'm an idiot, I figured it out.

You edit the page using a PC and drag everything to the left side of the page instead of centering it.

How did you get your camera to work with apple stuff. I can get my camera to work on a regular PC, but cannot get it to work on my Mac or iPad.

What browser are you using? Chrome on the iPad seems to struggle but Safari supports MJPEG.

Using safari, I clear the history to get the new dashboard to work.
