So I got a new Droid Incredible and I want to be able to access the forum on my phone. Is there a possibility of adding TapATalk functionality to the site? It's free...

I was wondering about this too. I have Tapatalk on my Nokia X6. I hadn't realised the forums had to be signed up for it to work.

Great minds and all that ... this has been on my list to look into! I hadn't yet gotten as far as "free." To be bumped up the list. I know there are several Blabbers who would appreciate this. :)

Where are we at on this? Is this going to go forward?

Thanks,

Apparently this is an app that we can buy for iPhones,Android,Blackberry,iPad,iPod Touch, etc. ($2.99 for iPhones). Free for forum owners though! Sounds like it would be a fantastic addition for the Blab forums! I would definitely use it!

Q: My favorite forums have not activated Tapatalk. What should I do?

A: Activating Taptalk is free for forum owners! We suggest you make the forum owners aware of this service and point them to this website as we have a dedicated section just for them. Alternatively you can copy and paste the feature list and screenshots in below section.

Tapatalk is a forum app on the iPhone (http://tapatalk.com/mobile.php#iphone), Android (http://tapatalk.com/mobile.php#android), webOS (http://developer.palm.com/appredirect/?packageid=com.newnessdevelopments.forums), Windows Phone 7 (http://www.board-express.com/) and BlackBerry (http://tapatalk.com/mobile.php#blackberry). Tapatalk Forum App provides super fast on-the-go forum access to majority of the discussion forums that has activated the Tapatalk plugin.

Good sales pitch! :lol :thumbsup

Have reviewed this twice since the thread opened last year. The first thing was to make sure Blab's sw provider did not see it in any way as a mod that would cause support issues. Then the provider was promising to issue their own fully integrated app. Then they did. Holy smokes the cost! :eek

Time to take another look at adding tapatalk ... with luck it's non-interfering of the web side, and installs quickly. :)

:hello Ha! Not selling, just thought it would be more informative initially. :) I haven't used it yet, but the Cruise Critic site has it available for their forums which looks like a very similar program that's used here. Tapatalk says it's used on lots of forums, but I'm not on many and that's the only one that I've come across so far.
As far as the technical stuff, uh, you know more than I do! :getaway LOL!

I was really excited to see there is a mobile site for Blab now and plan to investigate from my phone soonest!

However, I frequent another non-modelhorse forum on MobileRead.com and they have had a nice mobile site for some time, which I used on my Android phone. But when they recently enabled Tapatalk for the forum, I was SERIOUSLY BLOWN AWAY by how much nicer and easier access was! I don't bother with the MobileRead mobile site any more, because from Tapatalk, I can easily stay logged in, access PMs, subscriptions, everything I need to pretty much. It's very nice indeed and I know I would be more active on the forums here if Blab had Tapatalk access!

Thank you for the feedback!

I am happy to consider it, but it does get wedged between all kinds of competing priorities ... :)

Glad to know it is at least under consideration! The Mobile site is nice by the way, so at least I can access via that mode more often!

Hey Mary,
Any news on this yet? Please? Pretty Please? :ppplease It would be so cool to be able to post with people in real time when we're stuck at home and they're in line at BF, waiting on the NPOD or any other model event. But most importantly being able to access Blab whenever I want. :5fam :grin
