Can't save instructables when I write them on my Ipad Answered

When I make a new Instructable on my Ipad, it lets me write on the forms, but when I hit the 'save now' button nothing happens.  If I navigate away from the submission form, I lose all of my text.  I've started three instructables on my ipad, and none of them have shown up in my unpublished instructables page.

When I do it from my desktop, it saves just fine.

Hello Tara. Sadly, Apple makes it a bit difficult for us to work with certain things on the iPad. Mobile Apple products (iPad/iPod) don't support flash, which is what our uploader is currently using. Beyond that, Apple doesn't let us access images on your iPad, or the camera, so even if you were able to use the uploader, you wouldn't be able to add any images. I apologize for the inconvenience, but unfortunately in this instance, you're going to have to email Apple, and let them know you think the iPad should be a little more open (though I don't think that's going to help).

If there's anything else I can help you with, please let me know!

a BIT difficult?   I officially nominate that for "understatement of the year"  ;-)
