Post Mobile forum (Tapatalk)

Hi I wanted to suggest to make the forum easily browse-able on mobile devices. There is a free plugin that you can install on vBulletin called Tapatalk.

Althought the mobile Tapatalk app is commercial it would be great to have to option to use it whoever got the app. It works on Android/iOS devices.

It would be great to consider this proposal.
Thanks.

I'd suggest that you send a pm to the mods, I don't know how frequently they come here...

Yeah we're reading! I actually suggested something similar a few weeks ago, hopefully we can have a look at how much effort it would be and if it seems worthwhile, but I certainly don't see any harm in adding the option if it's easy.

Are you sure the Tapatalk plugin even works with a vBulletin version as old as the one we're using here? I thought it needs vBulletin 4.

Good spot, if it does involve buying an upgrade then I'm afraid it won't happen any time soon. I wonder if there are any alternatives.

I don't post from mobile but I can view the forum well on my android. Does Tapatalk really improve the experience? Or just optimize the display for mobile devices?

Yes it works on vB 3.6.x and upwards.
I sent the admins a PM about this.

Unfortunately the Root Administrator is absent so we can't do anything that involves accessing the forum files.

We're actually on 3.8.x? Wow... I must really still be in 2007 then. I remember us being on 3.5.x and people refusing to even consider supporting an upgrade to 3.6.x or later.

I remember El has done an upgrade at some point after I became a mod, which is after 2007. It's a waste of money to do it every time I suppose.

From looking at the html meta tags of this page we are indeed using vBulletin 3.8.4.

HTML Code:
<meta name="generator" content="vBulletin 3.8.4">
There is a recent tapatalk plugin release supporting 3.7/3.8 which can be downloaded here.

I think it should be pretty straightforward to install it, and it would be of great use to many of us who mostly browse the forum on mobile devices nowadays.

Oh, btw, is El the only person who can do this, or does anyone else have such administrative powers?

Added the feature. Let me know if it causes issues/or if it sucks.

Sorry for triple posting, but to answer your question, yes it does improve the experience, as it is a native app, and not just a modified view of the forum.

This is really going to make posting easier. Are push notifications enabled by the way? I haven't had a chance to see it work yet.

Thought I'd share a few pictures. It's really very nice to use, easy to browse all the forums, and the "latest posts" tab is very handy. I can even moderate threads within the interface.
