    You can download the Tapatalk app and connect to the forum that way (as with most other forums). But the mobile website is IMHO much better than Tapatalks app.

    Yeah I generally agree with this. I make apps for a living, but I feel this is the perfect usecase where an app would be very complicated to make (let’s face it Tapatalk whose whole business is their app, is far from great) and the mobile web works very well, probably the best of any forum I’ve used.

    Yep, that’s why I never pursued the app thing. It works well in a mobile browser, and to be honest, having both the app and the forum would be very time consuming. I mean you have to stay on top of those apps otherwise each new OS update might cause things to break.

    I used Tapatalk for a few months but recently deleted it. I added a shortcut to my home screen and never looked back, the mobile web works great.

    Hate Tapatalk. Don't use it.
