You can scroll around by pushing at the edges of the battlefield view.
The dev already mentioned in the Wesnoth forums that he's planning a bunch of fixes to improve controls: like better scrolling, and a "next unit" button.

That's good to hear, Wesnoth is one of the best TBS games out there IMHO, just want it more tailored for the iPad

Has anyone figured out how to reliably show the hex percentages for where you move characters to?

Read the whole thread before you freak out.

As has already been explained, Wesnoth is open source. Anyone can make an iOS port. The previous port is not supported any longer and is several patches old, this port is up to date and supports player made Wesnoth maps.

The creator of this new port is in no way affiliated with the old port and does not owe you a free game.

This was never ever a Poole game!

Here you can inform yourself about it: http://www.wesnoth.org/

I wrote last year that it will be the same as in old Palm OS times: K. Poole makes a game ... and grabs as much money as he can get ... after that: No updates, no new features ...

Default A little bit of Credit

I think it is not absolutely correct, to describe Mr. Poole as that. Yes, during the Palm days he delivered broken promises (presenting products far to late - even after getting money from the customers - and delivering broken products).
In the case of Wesnoth, it is not totally true. Neither was the product broken nor does he not delivered updates. I believe that he delivered 5 always with added content. After that, he turns to his new project, a deck building game named Shadow...something and brought nothing new.
