    Been watching and waiting to see if the poll warrants installing this "Free For All" Tapatalk app...

    I use Google Chrome on my tablet. I'm not sure why I would need anything else.

    Bump.

    Would really like to use TT for TVWBB.

    Any progress? Is there cost involved? I thought that it would work with this board's software.

    During down time at work I sometimes ck the site on the iPhone using the mobile site. One thing I've noticed is it doesn't attach my signature when I respond to a thread on the iPhone. No biggie -- just something I noticed.

    The more I look at Tapatalk, the less I see what's in it for me as a forum operator. Yes, some people like to use it. But Tapatalk makes money by selling the app to users and I don't make anything. Everytime someone with a mobile phone visits the forum, they're hit with a pop-up box suggesting that they buy the Tapatalk app. Every post from someone using Tapatalk ends with a signature that advertises Tapatalk. And there are reports of some technical problems when installing Tapatalk on vBulletin 4.

    I'm leaning toward not doing it.

    Tapatalk will increase traffic to the forum and give more access to members, moderators and admin.

    Tapatalk signatures are a choice of the user, they can choose if they are there and what they say.

    The main benefit is for users because it makes reading and replying much easier on a tablet, but the forum does get listed in Tapatalk for people to find. In the poll you did on Tapatalk, the majority of people are interested in using it.

    Not sure how good my polling methodology was. People who want to use Tapatalk were highly motivated to take the poll and say they wanted to use it, while the vast majority of members did not bother to take the poll. There are over 900 active members per month, but not even 10% of that number have taken the poll since November 23, 2012.
