Ipad and ACT for the web

Will the ipad's browser allow ACT for the WEB to work? Has anyone tried it?

It does not work. We have tried several browsers, but none are supported. 

Your options are to use companionlink or handheld contact to get your contacts there

use a remote desktop program

use a protocol like Citrix (Hosted or internalt) to access ACT, Quotewerks, MS Office

Handheld Contact is best... just released new version for iOS and working on an update for iPad to take advantage of the larger screen real estate.
In Australia, see your ACT! Consultant or http://www.glcomputing.com.au/HHC/

Also some screen shots of new version here:

We have a couple of clients accessing ACT! via Citrix on iPad's. I have also used the Wyse Terminal Client to access a terminal server, which has some limited success.

I agree with Mike, HHC is a good solution here.

HHC is going to be cheaper, leaner solution.  You won't get everything, but it will work well. ACT over Citrix is going to give you everything and then some.  Not really equivilant solutions.  Each one will meet the requirements of a specific need..   The nice thing about Citrix is you can take the same environment from home computer to work computer to laptop to IPAD.   Really cool.

Matthew - Have you thought of using Logmein on your iPad? I have a couple of clients that use it very effectively.
