    I was thinking about forking over the bucks for this app...

    I see that a number of members are using it including some moderators.

    Can some one give me a few pros and/or cons to it?

    I tired it, and got a refund. Nothing wrong with using the browser, plus its free. Saw nothing in Tapatalk that said "WOW this is great!"

    Nit only do I agree with this I'll also say I found the app difficult to browse the Forum. I too got a refund.

    But many people seem to like it. Maybe you will to. You've got 24 hours after you buy to decide.

    You need to make sure that you have cookies enabled, if you do it will only ask you once.

    I find it very convenient. It's rather simple and I think how it sorts the posts, it has a favorites section that lists your subscribed threads.

    For me, its nice. The only drawback is the picture quality of posted pictures. It's bad, at least for me.

    I like it pretty well.

    I agree completely here, but I'll add that I really like how fast threads load, and the fact that pm's are accessible/can be replied to.

    As well, I emailed them and they said they're working on notifications. If they do it right, I could disable my email notifications, since I currently get an email, then, if I want to reply, I open Tapatalk.

    I can't really see how it makes browsing difficult. The main tab is "active topics," where I spend a lot of time in the browser/on my PC, then there's a tab to view forums and sub forums. They just added the ability to make those favorites.

    Those are in addition to the info in the quote.

    That's not on our end. That's been day one since we started using the app. We weren't even aware of it, and I thought it had been taken care of. I'll mention it again.

    I don't see it when I enter the forum on my Droid.

    Unfortunately that's not always the case, I think it might be 3rd party browser related. I got cookies enabled and I'm using the dolphin browser but that popup comes back about every 2nd/3rd time I come here.
