Question To Tapatalk or Not
The forum should be relatively Mobile user friendly with auto resizing images according to screen size etc.

Should I bother with Tapatalk on here or not

No, I find it irritating being mithered about tappatalk every time I visit some forums an I find tappatalk irritating to use. 

The forum is fine on my original browser other than the reply box cannot be scrolled, it really doesn't play well with firefox though.

RE: To Tapatalk or Not
I voted "yes" for one reason alone.  On my phone and even on my tablet, no what browser I use, the posts appear to be all different sizes.  While one post in the thread may be readably large, the one below it is super freaking tiny and impossible to read without zooming way in.  Then, when I go to read the post after that it's large again and I have to zoom back out to see that one.  Bugs the shit out of me.

I have Tapatalk but rarely use it.  I just might if it works well on here.  I can live with the one single Tapatalk prompt when I first log in.

i as well vote YES for tapatalk. i use it on a few other forums i regular, and man is it a blessing. like Johnny said, on the native web broswer you have different sizes for every post(whether that's the code within the site, or the android's FF, Chrome browswer's fault) TT give a smooth clean look and all.
+1 for tapatalk.

Just no!

There was a time I'd have said otherwise.

The reason I won't now is contained in the word "monetise"

Same reason Photobucket lost a paying customer...

I hear it raises hell with some forum softwares, as in collides, and cause things from lagging to time outs.

RE: To Tapatalk or Not
at this time my only web is via PSN wich only supports select software , and further blocks content it dose not support . out side of that ... why fix what works.

When life hands you lemmons , make lemmon aid . When life hands you coconuts , stuff them in your shirt and ask if they make your boobs look big .

Don knows the score.. definitely no tapatalk here. We have a mobile theme now which defaults on mobile devices and TVF passes the Google mobility friendly tests.

Admittedly it would be nice to have a TVF app... but I don't know any app coders Tongue

I don't think it would be super hard to make an app, from what little app coding I've done it seems forums and websites are the easiest to program, you basically just design an interface and let the app download content to fill it in. I'm sure there's probably even a "drag-and-drop" app creator that could do it, but I don't have the time, plus you have to pay to put it on an app store.
