    My last tapatalk update was 11/12/2015 version 5.3.6

    To the forum that you can't do "Mark all posts read" Check to see if they have the latest tapatalk installed on the server. Admins get notified when tapatalk updates. Something may have changed.

    Everything worked fine until the last update to my phone. No you can't make everyone happy all the time I guess.... But this is now boarder line useless for me.

    You can find a signed apk version on the web if you really want to go back. Then turn off auto-update.

    That would be great! Except I don't know how to do that :-( I know what an apk is and how to install it. Where would I find the last good version?
    Thank you!

    Be very careful sideloading apps. There's things that go bump in the night down that path.

    While I agree completely, apkmirror is supposed to run verification checks on all apk's uploaded there to ensure they are legit.

    Correct. The version I gave him is signed by Tapatalk. So in this case, its safe. Normally I wouldn't suggest anything like this.

    This is what APK Mirror does..

    Of course we're aware of the risks of running a site that provides downloads of user-uploaded content, particularly when that content will be installed on your device. To keep things safe, AP staff checks each APK that's uploaded to make sure it's the real deal. To ensure there's not been any tampering, we even have an automatic signature check that will ensure the app's signature matches with the original. Additionally, the MD5 and SHA1 values are presented to the user explicitly (along with useful compatibility info), just in case a download goes wrong.

    This is the newest thread on Tapatalk, so I'm resurrecting it.

    Anyone else having issues signing in to Tapatalk today? Mine was working this morning, but when I left work for lunch, it wouldn't connect to sign me in.
