Add "Tapatalk" forum client!!!!

There's an app for the iphone/touch that will enable one to view forums through the app. It's called tapatalk. I guess it's free for a forum to be a part of this, the administrator needs to instal some sort of server extension.... maybe it's worth looking into. I would enjoy easily surfing rx8club from my phone...

I've seen this as well. Makes browsing a forum much nicer than mobile safari.

Tapatalk is awesome on my android phone too for browsing different forums. It would be awesome if you could get setup with that here.

The problem is when viewing the website on the iphone, it takes a lot of pinch zooming around. With the tapatalk, it will make the browsing a little easier. Speed has not been a problem for me.

When I say slow I mean you have to do alot of zooming around and its hard to read posts.

I don't think it's a necessity. I'm just more of a tech dork and think the app is cool. Not gonna lie, i don't really have a legit reason for it. I've played with the Read Only version with a couple of other sites and it is pretty slick.

yeah, it basically breaks the site down so it's viewed like an explorer/finder window, in list view, so you just see top level instead of everything It sizes and simplifies the text to make it easier to read. Definitely not a deal breaker if you choose not to use it. I still browse the forum in mobile safari all the time. On the phone end, it supports the iPhone, Android, Nokia devices, and Blackberry. I'm a tech geek like I said. Thanks for looking into it. Screen shots probably tell a better story.

I remember evom used to be native for mobile browsers much like this 'tapatalk' Users voted to get rid of it but I always thought it was great, really helps not having to zoom in on every little detail!

I would appreciate being able to use it, just as the previous posters stated

It also uses a LOT less data.

All these table layouts and JavaScript and CSS files are HUGE when you consider mobile broadband datarates. It takes forever to load it up. Tapatalk adds either an XML or JSON interface (I'd have to look it up) that only transfers relevant info and makes loading times (and bandwidth) drop like a fly.

Do it!

we've ran into some issues with our mobile device detection product and it's caused some delays. hopefully this will be solved very soon.

thanks for your patience!
