    Im thinking with the new mobile friendly layout, tapatalk is no longer supported or necessary. The "other site" recently did the same thing.

    I've been using the mobile version since Tapatalk stopped working here and it is much better than past versions, but I still prefer Tapatalk as a user.

    I understand that support for the Tapatalk addon for Xenforo can be bad, so maybe it should just be removed completely. Maybe I should try the mobile views of the other forums I participate in to see if they are as acceptable as the Xenforo version here. I might be able to break my Tapatalk need.

    There is a new version of the add-on that just came out. I'm going to give that a whirl and if it doesn't work well, we might need to disable the plugin altogether. Tapatalk has really gone downhill of late, it seems.

    I do agree with that last part. They've been getting more and more shady with their practices, but they have no competition for a forum aggregation. Web views have grown greatly and reduce my dependency on Tapatalk thankfully.

    Xenforo should look at moving beyond simple responsive layout and into a PWA (progressive web app). But they're resposive work is great.

    Sorry, got imto my developer mode there for a sec. But as much as I loved Tapatalk support, I cannot blame any forum mods for moving on.
