Allow users to override the dashboard browser auto-detect

Most web sites which auto-detect the device/browser in use allow the user to choose to use the full web site or a mobile/limited site. HootSuite does not offer such an option for Android Honeycomb/tablet (Xoom) users, and forces them to download and use the sub-par HootSuite Android app. The same restriction is not made on an iPad / iOS, where Safari can be used for the HS Dashboard.

        almost too late for Honeycomb... better get going with Ice Cream Sandwich!

        ditto the others, the benefits of Hootsuite are massively diminished when using a tablet that would easily cope with the normal desktop setup

        I agree 100% that an Android tablet app or a tablet friendly browser version be available.

        If you download Opera for Honeycomb, you can tell the browser to indicate that it is a desktop, but there is no scroll functionality

        Until you develop a Honeycomb version like the ipad specific, I think this would be tremendous. Clearly the android version for tablet with Honeycomb is quite poor !!
