Desktop mode needs to be fixed

Since you can’t do things like fully operate packages from the mobile version you need to open desktop mode. Unfortunately I can’t get it to work in landscape mode and I also can’t zoom in and out so it’s difficult to use. The biggest thing that needs to be fixed is that it zooms in when you touch a text field (and brings up the keyboard) but there’s seemingly no way to zoom back out after.

There’s a workaround for using the desktop

The new iPad version of DSM Mobile is a bit strange. The DSM desktop is larger than the iPad screen. Top-level DSM windows can’t be moved or resized on the DSM Mobile desktop, so parts of a window may be off-screen, making vital parts of a DSM app’s GUI inaccessible. My previous review concluded that the iPadOS app was therefore useless, but I have found a workaround. If you tap on the DSM window’s full screen decoration, the program (File Manager, Package Manager, and so on) will completely fill the DSM desktop space as bounded by the iPad’s screen, and will recompute its geometry correctly for that space. Therefore, all of the program’s controls will be laid out within the space, and will be accessible. I don’t find that to be as intuitive as being able to resize and move desktop windows, and to scroll those windows’ contents horizontally and vertically, but the one-window-at-a-time full screen model is completely usable; I just need to get used to it. The GUI of the iPhone iOS app is significantly different, and its lack of support for landscape mode encourages the use of the built-in tools rather than an attempt to do any work in desktop mode.

Can’t update packages using app

DS Mobile won’t allow you to scroll down to disable packages so that you can update when said packages require you to disable others first, making it far less useful. For instance if I need to disable three packages to update nodejs, I can’t scroll down far enough to turn them all off. Either make it automatically disable said packages for the user and then re-enable them upon update, or let the user scroll down, or both. It’s like the devs have never had to use this app...
