New DBSTalk app should now be able to be downloaded from the app store.

 

It is a Tapatalk based branded app.

David, from the site owner and revenue point of view, which method do you prefer us using the branded app or Tapatalk? I'm not tied to either, but want to use the one best for you :)

Kind of you to ask...Only makes income if an ad is clicked.  If you do not click ads, makes no difference.   

 

I think at some point I will be just getting away from the dedicated app and having people use the FREE version with ads. (Sorry)  That is because it costs $30 a month to have it and I come nowhere near making that back. LOL...Made $2.92 last month. :)

I figured memberships help more than pretty much anything. I know you likely could get more revenue from ads, but it certainly is appreciated by the members that you don't like intrusive pop up, pop under etc any more than we do :)

Is anyone else's Taptalk Forum List for DBSTalk in a weird sort order? I have mine sorted by Category (as opposed to by Name) and it puts the DirecTV Products and Services forum all the way at the bottom. I've attached a screen shot.

Yeah the directv topic is all the way at the bottom for me too on the iPhone, both tapatalk and dbstalk apps. I've been using tapatalk lately because it doesn't crash all the time and the one link is more appropriately named "forums".

"Is anyone else's Taptalk Forum List for DBSTalk in a weird sort order? "

 

Just to be clear with the above posts, do you mean the TOPIFY app?  (Not TapaTalk)  I ask for if it is TOPIFY, I will move the above posts into that thread.

Not sure if this is a Tapatalk/DBSTalk app issue or a forum issue.

I subscribed to a forum to get updates whenever anything is posted there. I am finding that I am not getting those updates. I just received a notification via Tapatalk and the DBSTalk app and an email notification as well for a post just being made. When viewing the forum, I found that there had been multiple posts of the last few hours for which I never received notification.

If you men you are not getting emails...than that would be forum.  Check your subscriptions and see how they are set to notify you.  I do see one went out today and was delivered and opened.  So mail is going out.  So I would check your settings.

Well, you can't see what the current settings are for the threads or forums that you are following. If you select Change, it just shows Choose Action, but gives no indication as to what you currently had selected. I went through and told all my followed threads and forums to be Immediate.

 

As for the subscription notice today, I did receive one, but upon pulling up the thread I saw that there were other posts earlier in the day that I didn't get a notification about (either via email or the apps).

 

What is the default Notification setting when you use the apps to follow a thread or forum?

Well, there were three more posts in the forum I am subscribed to and I got no emails or notifications via the apps. I also checked the forum itself and there are no notifications there either.

Bug Report: Cannot Unsubscribe from Thread

This issue occurs in both the Tapatalk and DBSTalk app. If I go the Subscribed filter and select a thread, I can then select to Unsubscribe. If I return to the Subscribed filter, the thread is still listed there. If I go back into the thread, it shows that I can unsubscribe again.

Under 'Content You Follow' if you click 'Toggle Edit Options' it shows you the current subscription settings for each thread. You can also place a check in the box beside each thread to change settings for multiple threads; at the very bottom of the list you will find the Choose Action pull down to make changes for the multiple threads selected above.

Got it. Thanks. Although, that's a stupid feature as there's no way to know that.

The interesting thing is that you are getting the notices from this thread.  I can see them going out....but it seems only these.  So I know the email notice system is working.  So I am thinking it has to be your settings as all I see is this thread and one new thread forum notice from 2 days ago.  

 

I looked at your settings, and it does look to be correctly set so I am kind of at a loss as to why this thread is working just fine while the few others are not.  Might I suggesting a logout to clear the cookies and then log back in.  Not that this would solve it, but worth a shot.

 

 

This topic should be it's own support thread to help vs in the iOS thread.  However, the above about it not changing the settings when in the app in something I will report to them.

Okay, I've subscribed to another Forum for notification and verified that ALL of my notifications for both forums and threads are set to Immediate. I'll see if I start getting notifications for the other forum. I'll create a new thread for this topic...
