EDIT: For those of you who don't know what tapatalk is, its a website add-on that allows for mobile phones (and other apps) to access the forums.

I know a while back we were considering Tapatalk. Any chance to reconsider it?  The Tapatalk API is free to install in itself, and there are enough 3rd party apps to at least give people the option to access the forums without cost to the site or the users. From what I understand this isn't banned from a tapatalk perspective. Its just not optimized.


I'll put up a poll if a few of the web-devs and/or site owners want to get an idea of who is interested.


The API has changed a lot since we last tested with it so I'll also provide a link to the SMF installer

Thanks for your (second) consideration and I hope this will turn out good for everyone!

I could have sworn I had this installed, and people were telling me to turn it off...

Because pressing "No thanks" once is too much to ask for, right?
It never bothered me to be honest. o:

Oh shit. I never realized I was on private browsing until now. Oops.

IN MY DEFENCE IT ISN'T OBVIOUS. IT JUST CHANGES THE COLOR OF THE BROWSER AND DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING LIKE "YOU ARE NOW IN PRIVATE BROWSING MODE"
