Finally after many years of NOT having a iPhone i finally got myself a 4s :) and wondering if Admin was going to enable this forum to use Tapatalk the iPhone/Android forum App ??
I know there is a version here in this forum to use the IOS forum version, but was wondering with so many people supporting by becoming Premium Members if there is enough dosh in the account to enable the use of Tapatalk, as its more streamlined than using the IOS forum version.
Would go a long way to being up there with the best.
My account in Mac-Rumours is so much easier to navigate the forum than what we have going on here ??
Who else supports the use of tapatalk and who would like to see it used for this forum ??

No opinion because I know absolutely nothing about it . . . Looks like I need to do a bit of reading. :)

I personally find the whole Tapatalk concept shady. I don't care for how the product is promoted (they essentially recruit users to spam for them), nor do I find their product unique - there are other free forum "reader" apps that essentially perform the same functions as Tapatalk, but don't require a dubious plug-in for the hosting forum.

For those reasons, I'm not keen on implementing it here - particularly when there are other viable alternatives. But thanks for your interest, TM.

I actually admin multiple forums, all with tapatalk installed due to user request. From both the forum perspective, and the OS perspective I have seen nothing 'dubious' from a security perspective about the plugin. I already know your opinion on the entire subject, but since I've actually some experience with it, I felt the compulsion to reply ;)

We are developing our own mobile solution actually, and have decided against Tapatalk. You can only run your own ads in the paid version, otherwise it is their ads, and they charge your users to install the app.

I've gone through the specification of our mobile solution pretty well, and feel pretty confident it will be very user friendly, and include the primary features for users that Tapatalk has.

It will also support the forum as well as the blog, which is something tapatalk does not do, but we consider important for our sites.

That's great news Matt, especially since I just purchased a new iPad. :)

I am a recent user of Tapatalk and it works fine, until I do a search in Mac-Forums and it returns an error message. Talpatalk does not do search for Mac F

If you have your own App, please tell us which is it. Otherwise, Tapatalk is working well with Mac-Forums except for that glitch...:'(

Tapatalk says the forum has to install a plugin in order for it to work. If you are using Tapatalk with Mac-Forums, you'll have to check with Tapatalk - I just checked on our admin side and the plugin is NOT installed.

This is 100% true. I suspect there's some misunderstanding. I do not see Mac-Forums as available via Tapatalk.

It is true, not in Tapatalk... I was confusing it with MR. It does not seem to like Mac, either way.
