I'm very sorry you're having trouble with SO2 for iOS.
The dashboard should be viewable no matter which device and which operating system you have.
Can you tell me which version of iOS you have running on your iPad?
To help me research this, can you describe what you see after you launch the app? (Can you attach or upload a screen shot of what you see?) I'm concerned the app is not successfully loading properly.
One thing you should try is to power down, then restart your device.
