I've browsed web-based help on my Android phone. As with web sites in
general, it seems to work better when the phone adapts the desktop
version than when the site detects the phone and substitutes a
dumbed-down "mobile" version.
The iPad works as well as a desktop for all the web-based help I've
browsed with it. A lot of the apps I use have help in PDF format,
If you're using Flare, you can generate the different flavors and
judge for yourself whether they're an improvement.
