For those of you running an iPhone, Blackberry, or Android, I've installed this piece of software:

Tapatalk - iPhone Android Nokia BlackBerry forum app for vBulletin phpBB IPBoard SMF

From what I understand, the standard WAP interface kills it in terms of performance, but if anyone is interested, MG is available on Tapatalk now as well. There's a free version of it in the app store that's read-only, or for $2.99 you can get their full version.

A few screenshots from their example site are attached.

This post is from the paid app. Pretty cool stuff, actually. If you have three bucks to blow, it might just be worth it - it's pretty fast!

I actually don't mind the WAP version on my iPod Touch. But is it possible to stop it from posting the metadata at the top of every mobile post?

I like tapatalk because it simplifies the interface in a way that makes me fat-finger things less - worth the couple of bucks.

Is anyone using this regularly? I'm thinking of punting on it - they're pretty good about patching it, but people keep finding security holes.

I've never used it. $2.99 seemed a little much for something that isn't absolutely necessary. The WAP interface is a little buggy, but it gets the job done most of the time.

If you find bugs with the WAP interface, please let me know. The developer is awesome, and tends to fix things pretty quickly. I haven't had a problem with it in ages.

A couple of things i've come across...

I find it still cacks on some pages where people have attached images. I'll have to let you know next time i come across it. It seems largely random.

If any text is put inside [square brackets] it's invisible on the WAP interface.

When YouTube links are posted, it only shows in text form as a YouTube embedded video, but there's no hyperlink.

Do me a favor and posts those in the WAP thread, so they don't get lost in here. :wub:

Updated it today. Here's the current usage:

The WAP site is a bajillion times busier, but since they've fixed the security holes, I'll keep it for the time being.

If I had seen this earlier, I wouldn't have picked up ForumRunner. :mad:

Any news on when it'll be back up - really miss it.

Tapatalk show exactly the stuff I want to see (latest, by date and by my own participation). Can't find any of that in the wap version.
