    Why don't we have the ability to view this ANDROID based website on an apparently for androids called taptalk I'm just saying you guys should look into it I mean its for android phones to view forums and it would only make sense for this android based forum should be compatible with a forum viewr just for android phones anyway its called taptalk you guys should get on it

    I was thinking the same thing since I already use Tapatalk to view the NASIOC forum.

    Yeah, TapaTalk is great. I just set up the GPS forum I run on it. Only takes about 10 minutes total.

    This looks AWESOME. I've not used it yet but I have a few other forums that I run and I'm going to try it with them. Would be GREAT to see this here on DroidFourms!!

    If this is anything like the "Touch Site" for Facebook, I'm all for it. Was wondering why it wasn't an automatic.

    LOL, sounds like a reason to push for the Tapatalk.:icon_ devil: But I will say they did a great job with the mobile version of the site. With the exception of quotes and editing posts its great. Loads quick and looks good.

    We've been discussing it at length in the mod forums.

    Since our mobile site went live we don't see a very big need for Tapatalk. Mobile site has been working out VERY well for us so we are going to pass.

    Thank you for the suggestion though. We ALWAYS consider any and all suggestions that our members bring to our attention.

    We want you ALL to have a great experience here and know that your voices are heard.

    Thanks everyone for your input.

    Why would you "pass" on this? It's free for the forum owner, and is as simple as uploading a few files and adding one line to the header of vBulletin.

    Why do you choose to deny users the choice of using Tapatalk or the mobile style? Adding support for it doesn't force people to use it.

    My only thought is that maybe you're running ads on your mobile style and don't want to lose that potential income. (I haven't actually used the mobile style, so just a theory on my part.)

    I haven't seen any adds on the mobile site (not saying they aren't there, but if they are they're not noticeable or distracting. But even if they do and that is the reason SO WHAT?? This is FREE (you haven't been asked to pay for your membership in any way) and there are costs associated with running this site. So it is not only their option but completely reasonable should they decide to get revenue from ads.

    It would appear that with Tapatalk you have to get the paid version to be able to post to a forum anyway (according to their homepage, I haven't used it though) so given the free mobile version of the site or the Tapatalk I'll take free.

    And that's your choice, so why deny others the choice of using TapaTalk? (And the Droid version is completely functional in its free form while in Beta.)
