tapatalk?

Postby JohnEtti » Sat Feb 26, 2011 12:11 am

Question I use my android phone and tablet for about 90% of my browsing when I am not home and a few of the boards I am on use a program called tapatalk so somene who has a username and pw for the board would just link it and is easy to navigate. Would it be possible or require a complete and not worth it overhaul to add this to fsf? I think it would help alot of people especially as we move to the more modern age.

I'd have to research tapatalk and see. Does it essentially let you navigate a website with your voice on a mobile device running Android?

No it is more jist a browse app. It allows you to access the board without a web browser and save credentials without requiring cookies of anything like that. Makels it easy to keep track of conversations for those who run heavily on android devices. Not sure if there is a winmo or ios version or not(i dont have either device and live on my android phone or tablet. Will supply a link to reference when i get home

I'll make sure the forum admins see this thread. That's an interesting mod. I'll make sure one of them comment on this.

I would like to post my support for this. I use my android phone to access when I'm not home, at work or on a business trip and trying to post on my sim board or in here is a bit of a pain. I USE TAPATALK on many of my other forums and love it. I would like to know what the higher ups think of this as well.

From what I can see, it looks like you can use this for free... Is the Tapatalk app free for mobile devices?

I want to say I paid for mine but that does not mean there isn't a free ad version of the app. I tend to buy my apps instead of dealing with the ads that pop up. Even so if someone is going on forums with there smartphone then they more then likely have already purchased this app, its that good lol.

Makes it much easier! The text box fits to the screen of your device. All the options for formatting and quoting easy to do and get too. It really will help us who use mobile devices to keep up with the boards and our Sims on them.

Josh, just to get back to your question, The addon from what i can see if free directly to implement it on the boards. However, the App for Android and Iphone, and Blackberry does have a small one time cost ($2 or $3 i think). However depending on how active you are with mobile browsing and accessing forums when you are on the go, that is a very small cost for the portability you can get.

There is a chrome addon i believe is free. Hope it helps. :)

There is a forums upgrade and some stuff coming soon. We'll look into trying this out after that.
