    Anyone else thinking tapatalk may be the wifi issue culprit?

    Well up to the time I installed Tapatalk I never got dropped wifi no matter how many roms i've tried. Every since started using the proggie i get dropped wifi?

    The one thing I will say is SS4.8 makes the switch when wifi drops to 3g cleanly as the other roms built on 2.2.1 from source do not!

    Have you tested your theory by uninstalling the tapatalk app?

    if you're correct, wi-fi should work no problem with it uninstalled...

    then I'd try a fresh install....

    Semi tested when I came back to SS the tapatalk app had not been installed in my backup image so it ran for awhile sans tapatalk with no issues.

    I will uninstall and test for a few hours.

    I have absolutely no issues with Tapatalk and my wifi. I would agree with the rest. Uninstall, test, then reinstall.

    Its a forum application. You can log onto droid forums and quite a few others using tapatalk

    Indeed! And now DroidForums had their own app in market ( it's basically tapatalk but exclusively for DroidForums...and free...)

    So hears what my findings are on my phone obviously every phone is different so YMMV. Re-installed tapatalk after flawless wifi connecting and didn't have a wifi issue but before I could thoroughly test I lost some screen sensitivity so I'm not even going to bother with the wifi testing as everything ran perfect before re-installing tapatalk.

    Just to save a bunch of redundant replies yes i did re-download just in case bad download the first time. My phone does not like tapatalk and i can live with that!

    your phone may not like it... could be
    also it might be the rom you're running and your phone...

    dang droids have minds of their own :)
