Tapatalk has been enabled for smart phones.

This makes browsing on a small smart phone much easier, the cost of the app is 2.99 and is well worth the investment. Works for iPhone, iPad, Blackberry and android and is available from your app store and ordered from your phone.

Have you ever visited a forum using Safari on your iPhone? If you havenít, good; keep it that way. If you have, you know itís an anti-aesthetical, layout-logistics nightmare, resulting in a frustrating, hurried exercise in swiping, pinching, zooming, scrolling and throwing. Thanks to apps like Tapatalk, the number of flying-iphone related injuries should be significantly down everywhere.

According to Tapatalk, it currently houses 11,529 public forums (over 12,000 according to its developer, Quoord Systems Limited, with 300 added every week), spanning 12 total categories, ranging from Aquarium and Animals to Technology. There are enough sub-categories within these, such as Watch (thatís right, watches, like the kind you wear on your wrist), Cigarette and Pipe, Blues Brother Central and Rupert Grint Forum, for those of us who just canít get enough of Rupert Grint, to appeal to even the most eclectic users.

Thanks to its speed and streamlined interface, using Tapatalk on the iDevice is even EASIER than participating in forums using a regular web browser. It contains most, if not all, of the features and capabilities offered by a browser, but in a compact, easy-to-use, no frills manner. Users lose very little, if anything, in the way of features and control; quite the opposite. Members can also easily see who else is online, view Board Statistics and their user profile. Users can even rearrange/re-configure their menu bar items.

Reviewing Tapatalk is different from reviewing other apps for the iDevice, because itís one of only a small handful of similar apps. While there are several apps dedicated to specific forums, only a few, from what I found in the app store, allow users to competently access a multitude of different forums.

That said, Iíve been waiting for an app like Tapatalk. Iím registered with so many forums, I was forced to purchase a secure, personal data app to keep track with my plethora of usernames and registration info.

Overall, Tapatalk is fast, convenient, easy-to-use and works just as advertised. Once more (hopefully) web site forums jump on its bandwagon, it will truly be, as stated in its App Store description: ďone of those applications that you didnít know you needed until you had it and then you couldnít do without it!Ē

Website owners/administrators, PLEASE add Tapatalk to the Tapatalk of your list of things to do!

Rock is in charge of Tapatalk on CU. SLW and I don't have Smart Phones so we can't see it. :frown-new::smile-new:

I'm using and love it so far on my phone. Much easier. I just discovered that I can't see or vote in thread polls though. Rock do you know if it has the capability for polls and I'm just missing it?

I looked through the settings and couldn't find it, I'll check if it needs to be enabled on the server end later.

Tapatalk has promised to fix the poll issue and are working on a plugin now.

poll issue isn't Tapatalk, it's the board

That is coincidental because Tapatalk does not support polls yet, Tapatalk has promised to fix the poll issue and are working on a plugin now.

I haven't installed tapatalk (and a lot of other apps) because the permissions seem intrusive. I don't understand why an app that isn't used for making calls needs access to my contact list or emails. The one I find most disturbing is the permission "including paid services"; it makes it sound like an app can end up costing me money.

Am I just being paranoid?

On the Tapa talk you are, it is a paid app and doesn't mine or use any of your information, the access to contact list is for sending a thread or post to a friend, same goes for the email permission, it doesn't use these resources unless prompted by you and is just part of the feature package of the software.

As far as other software apps go you need to research them on an individual basis, most are harmless but there are exceptions.
