I use an iPad and really want to get into LoTW but I understand that's not possible right now.  Has anyone heard about any upcoming LoTW app for iPad or other tablets?  Thanks.

There is no plan to produce a version of LoTW for iPad or Android tablets.

Thanks, Dave.  Sorry to hear that.

Guess the LoTW folks think the desktop PC and notebooks will be with us forever.  With mobile devices so popular how long can developers turn out products for soon-to-be antiquated computing platforms?

Just my humble opinion.

Tablets are certainly replacing laptops in portable usage scenarios, but desktops are likely to remain the preferred form factor for the automation of fixed amateur radio stations, where having a keyboard, lots of display area, lots of storage, and the ability to control multiple devices are requirements.

Tablets are here to stay only thing that may vary is OS. You can get a Win 8.1 tablet now and run LotW
