Try Puffin Browser, but very slow when navigating around the page in the FV.

Just tried reading the FV Express version of the whole paper using Puffin today. I'm satisfied as it's the only solution now.

In Puffin, change to Drag mode to turn the page and to zoom in/zoom out.

i tried using iSwifter. It can work. Can read the epaper zoom in and out although it crashes sometimes.

iSwifter has a free 7 day trial period. U can use it to see for yourself.

Well, i tried to remote desktop to my computer using Splashtop.
It works to some extent. Can zoom, can flip but need a computer to be running.

Actually Teamviewer does the same thing, and it's free!

I use Puffin because it can also play the video in xinmsn Catchup TV!

During the keynote on iOS5, I saw the straits times logo when they talk about news stand. Maybe next time we can read straits times nicely on iPad liao.

iSwifter is US$2.99 per month. Subscription based. Very expensive.
