This was discussed during the recent VF trip, but it would be great if we could use Tapatalk to access veganfitness.net. It's a nifty little app that you can get for your smart phone which streamlines forum access. I use it for some other forums that I frequent and it's much better than accessing it via your phones web browser.

Has anyone else got experience with it?

I will look at turning it on for our server, but anyone else's experience would be appreciated.

It does mean you have to pay a couple of quid to use the Tapatalk app.

What about something like phpBB Mobile. It is free, and should make the forum work better on a phone. http://phpbb-mobile.com/

Damn. Thought this thread would be all about tapas. I was ready to waffle on about the joys of olives and toasted almonds.

True but if you've already got the app (like I do), then it's quite useful. It would be even better if we could get it working on tapatalk as well as phpBB mobile, that way there are more choices.

Sorry to disappoint you, if you start a tapas thread I will be happy to discuss the finer points of tapas selection. ;)

Yeah I am on it, the more people that are likely to use it the more motivated I will be to get it done.

Have you used it before, kind of feel we should maybe wait for the first release? Unless you have used it and its ok, then I can blame you when it crashes the whole site and we loose all our data :twisted:

It is still under development, but it is in Release Candidate stage and we are currently just ironing out bugs, ready for our first official release.

Tapatalk has been installed for a month now, are people using it or have any feedback?

For none geeky people, tapatalk is an app that you install on your phone to make it easier to browser forums. You get a free version which lets you just read the forum and a $3 version that lets your post.

Would like to know if this is a good solution for VF on mobile or if we should look at other options like mobile friendly themes.
