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

 

It is a Tapatalk based branded app.

It works!

It is displaying two signatures though.


It is displaying two signatures advertisements though.  Anyone who uses that should have to pay DBS for each ad they place.

I'm on Android but as the iOS users are also experiencing the mobile app no longer working, it got me to thinking.

 

With the forums now being ran by Invision Power Board.  Is there a setting or a "switch" if you will, that the mods can throw to enable use with Tapatalk forum software?  I know a great many forums can be utilized via the Tapatalk app on Android, I assume the app is also available for iOS?

 

I am on Android and the app works...See the setting mentioned above to set in the app.  I have sent a message to the app developers, but no reply.

Someone must have gotten through to the Android app dev team.  My Android app is working flawlessly now, with no changes on my part.

 

Thanks Dave.

Mobile App - Added back support for our dedicated app and found you can not get into threads without special settings. -


1. When Opening a Thread, Always: Jump to First Page

2. On Forum and Search Summary Pages, Show: First Post in Thread

3. Posts Per Page: 20


...A bug report has been sent to the developer on this. But at least it is a work around. Special thanks to member Blurayfan.


This worked for me on my iphone4, thankfully, since I don't like the mobile forum version :(, had this happen to another site too but I may try those settings since its the same app

Is there a particular reason tapatalk isn't being looked into? They seem to have a much better support for their product and ipboard than FR does now...

I purchased the ForumRunner app to make it free for the members.  As such, we are trying to get what we paid for as it is said to work with IP.Board.  They need to fix a few things and I have submitted bug tickets.

 

We could move to Tapatalk, and may.  But right now it would run me $30 a month to have it.

The mobile skin really is nice, the more that I use it. Forum Runner or Tapatalk would be better but this mobile skin is very useful. I'm using it right now on the iPhone while I'm out. Anyone know how to increase the default font size? That's really my biggest issue right now.

Because we can't seem to use attachments with the mobile skin, I may switch to the DBSTalk Forum Runner app once they fix the "show first post in thread" option. I tried using Forum Runner now, and I find it a PITA to always have to start from the first post when opening a long thread, especially if it has multiple pages. Just me, tho.

Oh yeah, it's not just you, unusable for me in its current state, I totally rely on the thread unread status, so I'm on the mobile skin for my iPhone until the fix. iPad with regular skin until the fix.

The $30/mo is only if you want your own personal branded app I thought....

Thought the free form still allows you to monetize off links and such...

I think the FREE version they make the money from.  Though I could be wrong.

 

Correction...It would cost me $40 a month as they charge per platform...Android and iOS.  (Plus $99 activation fee)

Only that.   Look at the FAQ.  It does not allow for ads to benefit your site.

Hi..

 

Thanks.  We are ware of this as it started as soon as we updated the servers operating system.  (Which is something I had to do and this not going back.)  I am waiting for ForumRunner (Vb) to get me a new beta they are working on.  They are aware also. 

 

Please not now use the mobile skin of the site on your mobile browser.  If they do not come though in a timely manor, I wil need to look into another solution.  

 

(BTW...I also am not happy about this as it takes away ad revenue that the site needs.)

It will be interesting to see if Forum Runner steps up. As much as it looks like other Apps are now more creative, it would be nice to at least be able to go back to what we were used to. Wishing you good luck.

 

Though the IP mobile skin is actually fairly nice. I really do like it.

 

I wish I could figure out how to add a "follow" from within the mobile skin, and make the font of a post a little bigger. Those are really my only items, especially the font size when I'm on the run. During the week I do alot of reading while mobile.

Branded app working great tonight. Parse error gone and the app can successfully jump to first unread post. Only issues I see are sometimes the page the app believes it is on does not match the posts that are shown. Simply choosing a different page and then go back displays the correct page with matching posts. Also the issue of posts that contain special formatting display the formatting code for example on quotes it states blockquote. Another example is strong for boldest text.
