Ho i get the message box on my ipad and android now that there is an app for this messagoe board.. are these apps really better? I pretty much always browse on ipad

For a small screen devices apps like tapatalk are really great, you dont have to zoom in/out hunting for links to click, it formats everything to a simple item list (like gmail app)

...but with ipad i would probably stick to a standard web browser

As some (few) of you probably know, tapatalk is functioning as a plugin on our forum (read all about it here), but last time I checked (the tapatalk stats) exactly three people were using it, one of them being the person who brought it up originally (pun intended) and our two additional testers.
It would obviously be nice if some more people would consider using it... :p

The problem is it's paid app. If someone knows free one let us know!

I tried Convo which is supposed to be a free Taptalk client. Couldnt get it to find si-community, so cant say anything good or bad about it. I dont like the idea of paying for apps, since Android has sooooo much free stuff, but I must say that for all the time and data Taptalk saves it is worth it. IMHO

Yes, the fact that Tapatalk isn't a free app bugged/bugs me too. Looking at the price they ask for it, it doesn't feel like such an enormous setback, considering it apparently opens up the si-community on smartphones and from what I hear it does so quite well. A friend of mine (who does own a smartphone) also informed me that in the smartphon world paying a small amount of money for apps is quite common...
To me as an administrator there is a hidden benefit to the fact that Tapatalk is a commercial app, although it has yet to be proven to be true (and I hope it will never come to that). If something goes horribly wrong, I know "where they live", so to speak (i.e. whom I could pester for additional support). All kinds of non-commercial solutions might be harder to track down, if and when the s*** hits the fan...
;)

Now might be a good time to finally add rray's screenshots of Tapatalk in action that I technically couldn't add to the announcement post (as it already was way over its word count limit). To state the extremely obvious: these are two screenshots merged together to one image...

I have just installed an update to our Tapatalk plugin.
As I still don't own a smartphone, I need feedback, as I am unable to test it myself...
:-?

Looks like it's working fine! Tested image attachments, post editing etc...

Deleting attachments after posting doesn't work but that's probably a missing feature in tapatslk itself

I'm late, but I just tried Convo and works fine (free tapatalk client for android), the web server for this forum is: si-community.com/community

Cheers!

Great! Hope more people join in since free apps seem to work... I check this community often through the phone now, even though some limitations apply.
Hope other forums would adopt it...
