On Saturday July 7th we will be removing TapATalk from the forum and replacing it with a mobile style.
This has become necessary due to security risks inherent in 3rd party software that we have no control over and a lack of our options when it comes to controlling what and how it displays content. Plus our mobile theme is free for you...tapatalk is not!
For those that are curious in the month of May over 20% of our visitors were on a mobile device!
Ah unfortunate. Safari isn't quick on my phone but tapatalk definitely is. This will cut down on the amount of time I spend on here considerably.
A large part of that is because mobile phones struggle to process complex html pages like our forum. The mobile style will significantly reduce the amount of processing your phone has to do and thus significantly speed up the site in your browser.
Nice! Great move/idea! I never could get into tapatalk after trying it for a few months. I havent had any problems with safari, it has been fine to load but then again, I'm pretty much always around wifi anyways. It's just the pics in the threads that can sometimes take awhile and most of those are because of external links and no fault of TPT.
Anyways, looking forward to seeing the mobile site!
I'm brand new to TPT, but FWIW, I'll miss TapaTalk. I find that I tend to use those forums (both business and pleasure) that have Tapatalk access. As much time is spent on mobile devices, It will unfortunately cut down on the amount of time I spend on TPT.
I wasn't unaware of any additional security concerns with Tapatalk. I do understand controlling content - especially display of ads is difficult.
