Event App - needs many taps to activate a field

Does anyone using the Events app on iPad find that it takes multiple taps to navigate between fields? I've seen many comments that the app is slow and better suited for small events, and even a couple of reviews on the App Store itself indicate that other people encounter the "need multiple taps" issue too. Is this common? Is there a fix?

The double-tap issue (specifically for iOS) has something to do with the way the front-end is coded. It boils down to changing the display of an element using the "hover" state. Since you can't "hover" on an iPad, iOS fires the hover state on the first tap and then the link on the 2nd.
