    Hola, staff....

    I found this nifty thing called tapatalk for forums.

    http://www.tapatalk.com/


    It supports:vBulletin, IPBoard, phpBB and SMF forums that have activated Tapatalk.

    and it's free to put on your forum.

    Since most of us are pirates anyway. we cna pirate the app. but there is a free one [​IMG]

    So.. YEAH!

    I use this application for a few other forums and found browsing to be far easier on a phone using it.

    Fairly sure we're running a heavily modified version of IPB v2.

    I think I remember them saying it would take a lot of time and effort, and there's the old saying ''If it's not broke, don't fix it''

    Smartphones and devices like iPod Touch should browse the forums just fine at this point. I tested quickly with Opera Mobile on my N900 just now and had no issues navigating the site. Opera Mini on iPod Touch, iPhone and Android ought to have comparible results at the very least.

    This just seems like slapping features on for a select few people with little reason in the first place.

    I disagree ^^

    Its all about ease and accessibility and increasingly more and more people use there phone for what would have been considered common desktop tasks in the past

    Tapatalk on Smartphones and gbattemp...by the way i did find the cheat section of gbattemp via the search in this app - or was that some rip off merchant using your name

    I have just started using this (free version) and its a great way to read forums on smart phones I was just wondering if gbatemp will ever be compatible.....
    at the moment i read xda developer and evo-web as my only two that i read on it, ideally would love to see gbattemp on here too, any thoughts?

    No i don't make any money from this lol....i just wanna see all my fave forums compatible lol
    and by the way i am going to ask a couple of my fave forums the same this ie psx-scnene the same thing so hope you don't think it is spam, i just thinks more forums these days should be accessible from a smartphone easily i hope you guys who are on the move like me appreciate that this will help greatly

    Info
    http://www.tapatalk.com/

    btw i read the discussion on mobile version....from what i have read you need to upgrade the version forum code etc....for this to be compatible on tapatalk
    but seriously reading and writing on phones is /can be very quick and easy esp with swype and will continue to be so ....if you are not then fair enough just don't close the doors on it

    I must admit it is quite a good app on android. I use it to access xda-developers forums quite often.

    yes you can just browse the normal website but loading takes forever (especially when not on wifi)

    the point of tapatalk is that it only loads the necessary elements of the forum while still retaining most of the features, cutting down on data use and being much faster

    Tapatalk only supports IP.B v3
    We are on v2 and the admins have hinted slightly at upgrading. And IP.B V3 has its own app, so Tapatalk is kinda useless unless you want all your forums together in one app

    Browsing with Opera Mini on 3G here, pages load pretty fast.
