Tom's Hardware for iOS Updated as Universal App

In an increasingly internet-connected world, you can read Tom's Hardware from more than just your desktop or laptop computer.

As some of you may know, we have both Tom's Hardware and Tom's Guide iPhone apps on the iTunes App Store. Today we're proud to announce that Tom's Hardware for iOS is now a universal app, which means it will also work on the iPad – making use of the increased screen real estate of the tablet.

It's a tiny download at just 1.3 MB, but it'll give you customized access to Tom's Hardware when you're on the go. Click here for the iTunes link.

If you're browsing from a non-Apple device, be sure to bookmark m.tomshardware.com for a mobile version of the site.

Special thanks go out to our developers who worked on this in their own time.

    please get rid of the mobile site. it is annoying as it doesn't display the same info, it is not updated as quickly, it is rather difficult to find the comments or make comments.

    Whats worst is that is it not compatible with browsers such as opera mini and opera mobile and skyfire and many others that engage in any form of external processing.

    Whats worst is on these browsers, the site defaults to the mobile site and since many don't properly handle cookies, you cant use the full size.

    For these browsers there is no benefit to using the mobile site on a browser that does the processing server side.

    Agree with others about the:
    1) Android App (which is what i thought was meant by it becoming universal)
    2) The commenting and log in system (which the app doesn't have)

    I was using the mobile site till now, didn't know about the app.

    It seems that tom's is out of touch with it's user-base (mostly windows and android users, not apple users).

    Most of the android and ios tablets can handle tomshardware's desktop version. I hate seeing the site's stripped-down, bare-bones mobile version, which befits a 3.5'', on a full-fledged 10'' tablet. Sites which have a mobile version ought to proffer a desktop version alternative in order to obviate tedious user-agent switching.
