The user starting guide.

The idea, extend the use of BoincTasks to a mobile device, like a tablet.

Option 1: Mobile:
You are using it locally and can access a computer running BoincTasks on your local network. (browser access).

Pro:
Is't fast, because you are in direct contact with BoincTasks.
You can access  most used features, like suspending, resuming tasks or a project, view graph.

Cons:
Is not always possible to use because of firewall restrictions.
You need to run BoincTasks on one of your machines.

Option 2: Cloud:
Your are using it from anywhere.

Pro:
It works on most devices (IPad, Android, Windows 8, laptop, desktop, Windows, Mac).
You can access  most used features, like suspending, resuming tasks or a project, view graph.

Cons:
Its a bit slower because it uses a cloud based routing system.
You need to run BoincTasks on one of your machines.

Option 3: WWW:
You can integrate your tasks page into your webpage.

Pro:
It works on any device with Internet access.

Cons:
Limited to viewing the tasks.
No control options, viewing only.
You need to copy information with an FTP program.
