Attention Admin!! Serious Issue

Ok, maybe not THAT serious, but I've got your attention!

I hate to sound like a commercial, but another board that I go to just got the Tapatalk plugin. It's free to forum owners, and it makes the board integrate with an app that is available for most smartphone platforms. It is SERIOUSLY awesome! We are having so much fun with it. I don't get to the board as much as I'd like because I don't have the time or want to sit at the computer at home after doing it all day, plus deal with my toddler, husband, dogs, etc. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

But anyway it's FREE to forum owners, and it's totally awesome. I am way more impressed with it than I anticipated. You can even upload pics right from your phone to the Tapatalk server. It's as easy to post to the board as it is to post to Facebook.

Nudge, nudge, wink, wink...

For the record, I don't work there or know anybody that does. I just love the app so much that I want all of my forums to get it so that I can easy check in more often :D

I've seen you using that on PBF - what exactly is it? What makes it so cool? Their website isn't real helpful! lol

I wish I could take screen caps so that I could make sense. It essentially turns a forum into a native app on the phone. Everything is formated perfectly, so you don't have to scroll or zoom. It keeps tracks of your subscribed threads, or threads that you have participated in. It will send you a notification for PMs if you want it to. I can post photos from the phone.

It's just super awesome. If you use a mobile device to surf forums, it makes life a whole lot easier.

Looks like they (Tapatalk) aren't being very cooperative with phpBB http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... #p12944470

Sounds like it would be kinda neat to have. Forums can be annoying on the phone due to the scrolling.

That's a bummer... when they have it up and approved I'd be happy to add it.

Really? I think the other two boards that I visit and use it are phpBB.

It's still a "release candidate" according to the phpBB people and I don't like to put unfinialized mods on the forum. Most of the time there isn't a problem, but sometimes there is.
