    So, which versions pf the Crackberry is this going to work on?
    One huge dowfall of viewing this site via my phone is I don't see any graphics. Are you telling me that will change with tapatalk?

    Technically, we 'could' make it so that you see the full version of the site from your Blackberry. But it's probably going to be painfully slow and not very user-friendly. As you can see, Tapatalk is the solution to that.

    No word on which Blackberries will be supported. I would assume many of the newer models will. They're targeting the first week of February for the first beta release.

    Right, I understand why you guys chose to make the mobile version "Graphically challenged" but it is frustrating at times.
    Is that 2.99 a one time charge or will ATT charge it every month?
    Thanks for all you guys/gals do btw.

    One-time charge.

    Seems to have gotten a very good response from the membership thus far.

    And yes, it makes it much easier to view the threads in the Ladies Lounge. ;)

    Looks pretty interesting. One question: what are the benefits of using Tapatalk over the HTML version of the site? Are we looking at faster navigation, less loading time, no ads, things of a technical nature like that?

    Definitely looks like it's worth the modest fee. I'll have to give it a run sometime this week.

    Thanks for having the feature available. Always wondered what the forums would look like in a more iPhone-optimized configuration. :up:

    Hmm. 'thephins' works for me in search. I'm using an Android, so maybe something is different there.

    It will serve you well. :shifty:

    Just poked through the iTunes App Store and noticed a free, read-only version of Tapatalk available. Like the name suggests, you can't post with it, but you can use it as a sort of demo to see what the app is like.

    Personally, I just coughed up the money for the full version. 3 bucks, pfft. Though I do admit I think the Android version has much better UI. I'm a little envious.

    I should probably update the first post. I've got the RO listed in the 3rd post but it'd be easier to find up top.

    They upgrade pretty regularly so you'll want to make sure you check in. Android users should be on v1.2.4. iPhone is currently at 1.6.1.

    The UI indeed looks better on Android right now. But the app came to Apple products first and is therefore is much more mature over there functionality wise.

    In the next couple of weeks, there will be updates for Android to bridge that gap a bit by adding image uploads, search, mark forums read along with the usual UI/performance enhancements. Notification of new PM's also coming.

    Also FYI - the free beta version for Android will become read-only at the end of February. You'll need to throw down the whopping $2.99 for Pro if you want to be able to post and such.

    Seems to be that way, judging by the screenshots. They went a little "too" iPhone-style with the iPhone version, IMO. Could use some features like a "mark all new posts as read" function, better presentation of thread page numbers, things like that. But it's definitely a nice way to browse the forum on the go.

    Make sure your Tapatalk client is up to date.

    They issue updates almost weekly. If you're on Android, the latest version of Android market lets you set it to automatically do so.

    Give that a try.

    If you log out, and then re add the site through the Tapatalk interface you should be good. I was having the same issue this afternoon.

    I thought you meant since we upgraded the forum (in November). :lol:

    You have to re-add the site because the forums URL has changed. No more subdomain.

    I believe it's still in beta, and I think you have to have OS 4.5 or newer.

    Try the following link in your BlackBerry: http://tapatalk.com/bb/

    Which version of VBulletin are we using? Tapatalk updated last week with support for the Thanks function in VB 3.x only. Since I can't find any way to actually thank posts, I'm guessing we're on 4.x.

    Yeah we're on VB4. We stay up to date on that.

    Not sure why they'd choose to code for VB3 only. Seems counter-productive at best.
