  • For those of you that have Tapatalk, what does it do for this forums viewability?
    Is it worth the 3 dollars it costs?

  • I use it on my iPhone and like it. Havent bought the ipad app though, so id be curioous to see if theres any advantage over just using safari. Also, it works with many other forums as well. Most of my truck forums are supported with Tapatalk too.

    You don't get the app transferred to your iPad?

    Bought my parents a Nexus 7, and all of their apps from their phone transferred automatically, they didn't have to pay twice.

  • I'm able to view and post here on my Droid without TapaTalk, via a normal web browser. What difference does TapaTalk make from that?

    I think Tapatalk just makes it easier to see on smaller screens, but it also organizes things and shows you posts you've participated in. I rarely use it, but even so, when I do, it is nice and at least on my low end Android, it was well worth the $3

    All new threads automatically get bumped up on the list. Or threads with most recent comments. Makes it easy to follow a thread without having to subscribe and get an email everytime someone responds. There's also a simple tab that shows threads you've participated in. Just keeps it nice and streamlined and you don't have to jump in and out of subforums.

  • Tapatalk makes browsing forums faster, easier, and just more enjoyable overall. No reason not to buy it. Buy & install it, set the theme to dark, and you're good to go.

    That happens in a regular web browser too. The only advantage I'd see is if it automatically displayed the font a little larger, without having to pull it wider to read easier.

    It does, and it's black type on white screen. This blue is nice on the desktop, not so much on the phone!

    I buy most music & movies I like, thanks. Many of them I sample in a not-exactly-legal way beforehand, but I still regularly buy.

    It is not merely the way it resizes the forums. It's the way it organizes everything to make forum usage much smoother and easier.

  • Just piling on here, but yes, totally worth it, even if you don't use it often. I don't use it more than once or twice a week and I am glad to have it.
