    Is anyone here using Blend on a Surface tablet (pro i.e. windows 8.1)?

    If so, is it any good, particularly outside wifi range?

    All I could say is: It installed ok, and it seemed to work ok. Font is however so extra tiny that it's almost impossible to see, or read anything. Some folks think it's alright but they must have eyes like an eagle.

    Personally, I find it completely unusable. Quite a shame, btw.

    I installed it on my Toshiba Encore 8". The font so tiny, it also is on my HD screen laptop but I stick to the modern side on my tablet as using the desktop side is a pain without a bluetooth or usb kb and mouse. Using the on screen kb on the desktop is bad on a small screen as sometimes it covers where the text goes so you can't see what you're typing. Since the surface has a larger screen I don't know if it would be better or not. It would be nice if they could make a blend modern app.

    I use Blend on my Surface Pro 2, it is quite nice and handy. The fonts look small but I took care of that by magnifying my screen (using the magnifier feature in Windows 8.1). It works well at the office when I use my Classic as a hotspot and connect my Surface Pro to the hotspot. Overall it has been a very pleasant experience.

    Ps: I tried it on the 8' Toshiba Encore 2 tablet..., I wouldn't suggest that. It sort of slowed down my Encore 2 (but then I think the Encore 2 was slow by itself, period.), and the screen couldn't be magnified enough to make it worthwhile using Blend on it.

    There definitely has to be a modern app for Windows 8.1.

    It is barely usable on my Dell Venue 11 Pro. The fonts are so tiny that it is barely readable.
