Update: The app has not yet been approved by Apple, but we still expect that to happen this week.
We’d hoped to make the Safari To Go iPad app available this week following approval from Apple, but at the last minute uncovered an obscure but serious bug affecting users on a 3G iPad. Fortunately it was a simple fix, but it does mean waiting for approval on the update. The fix has been made and submitted, and while the approval timeline is out of our control, we expect it to take about 5 days, so we’re currently planning for a release early next week, as soon as Monday.
Thanks for your patience, and you can sign up to be notified by email when the app is available here.
