    How do you access RCuniverse? PC/Mac or Phone/Tablet?

    I am curious how people are accessing RCUniverse. We upload a lot of pictures and link YouTube videos, so I assume we mostly access it from a PC. However, lately I've seen a lot of people stating they wish they could add photos from their phone/tablet (iPhone, iPad, etc)

    PC when the site works, been spending a lot of time elsewhere since the site seems to have contracted snail disease.

    Maybe I'm going blind but I'd much rather surf the web on a 19 inch screen than a 3 inch screen.

    However with the video & photo capability of modern phones I can understand the convienience
    of uploading straight to the web without the double shuffle from phone to computer to web. - John.

    It is very difficult uploading from an IPAD. The time allowed is always too short. The IPAD is a great reader. You can read in bed, in the kitchen but typing on it is 2 fingers at best.

    Mostly Mac, but occasionally on Droid (when traveling). I've always wondered why RCU didn't have a "mobile" option like many other forums/sites offer.

    On a mac....but one thing that drives me nuts is that the "next image" buttons do not work...they jut close each photo and you have to manually open the next one......really lame.

    PC Only can't afford to through my money away on that JUNK (IPad, I Phone, Droid, Tablet, ect.) when there's more TOY Airplane  "STUFF" to buy.

    Yipee at last Apple have came out with IOS6 now you can upload pics directly from your iphone without having to use one of those stupid photobuckets/flicker etc where the pictures are far too big for the thread and disappear from forums over time.

    I asked the question because I was doing some qualitative research for a business school class. Thanks for your contribution.

    I really didn't contribute... I was just curious. Good luck on you class. I think you have a executive future at J.D. Powers...
