Any chance of implementing the free server side of this app so that iphone users can take advantage?

Thanks for the heads up. We will look into it.

Have you tried the iPhone skin we already have online?

Great! It still needs work but it's functional.

Again, we will look into Tapetalk. The only big issue I see is that iPhone users will have to pay $2.99 to download the app. Not a big deal for some but could be a show stopper for others.

Yep, I can definitely see how some might have an issue with the app price. I must say though that it's actually really nice and makes browsing forums MUCH better than even the iphone skin we have here. There is definitely work to still be done but it looks they are actively adding more functionality. In the end it won't matter how good the app may be if the forums one visits don't have the plugin installed, which is of course why I inquired.

Thank you

We looked into using Tapetalk and it turns out that it interfaces with our software a little too close. A lot of backend stuff going on which we don't really want. Also, the fact that users have to pay to use it doesn't help as well.

Thanks for your suggestion.

Interesting app, I could see buying it if the forums I frequent supported it ;)

I really wish DBSTalk would reconsider. Tapatalk is a great app that I use for a couple of other forums that I frequent and would be nice if it was implemented here.

Let's not leave out other smart phone users.
There is a BlackBerry beta version, which I just downloaded, and a Android, Nextel versions also.
We need some love. :-)
Thanks to Google search, people can appear to be smarter than they really are.

i too sure would like to have tapatalk support for this forum i use a droid and it would make reading and writing to this forum better for me and other users. i wish the site would reconsider and give the user the choice.

I'll add my vote for Tapatalk. Been messing with it on the iPhone and it makes reading vBulletin forums very pleasant as opposed to the tiny print in mobile versions of Forum software or the full browser use.

I'd buy it for $3. It's not like anyone MUST use it. Right now I am testing out the "read only" version which is FREE. FREE is good.

After using it on some other forums I can say I really wish it was here.

It is miles ahead of using a mobile skin on the iPhone. So much faster and better formatted for surfing a forum.

But I totally understand if the owners/staff do not want to implement it. It is a 3rd party.

Someone else posted about this the other day and I did some reading. Although the Iphone browser does let you see this site this Tapatalk would be it so much easier. Put my vote down for this as well. I saw an affiliate site that seems to be on Tapatalk already.

Hi All...

Please be aware we are currently working on a iPhone app for the site. It will be free.

You see, one issue we run into with this site is the amount of customizations we need make to the software. As such, we can not just add something like is mentioned here based on issues it can make. Like searching for example, as we do not use the standard Vb search.

Stay Tuned
