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

 

It is a Tapatalk based branded app.

Oh I see. You can't insert your site ads into the paid version. But if it's the free you can kill the ads for club members. Now I see what your saying. ;). Thanks for explaining it.

Sounds like we need more club members to offset the mobile use!

David,

I also see your concern, but I bought (TapaTalk HD) the app awhile back for another forums as well and was disappointed not to see DBStalk as part of this app. I am a heavy mobil user and do not use the web version.

I can see where you can make some $$$ by allowing only DBStalk Club members use of third party apps.

I am of the believe that running this sites and apps do have an overhead and as such I gladly pay a justified amount because it my convenience to use the app and not the web version

While on this topic, I would like to express my feeling to "in app purchases" I can't tell you how much I hate when developers go this route. I will gladly pay for "content", whether is a game app, or a forums app full price but unlimited, than make the app "cheaper" and force us, users, to keep paying more for more "features" like they are trying to "milk the cow dry"

Hopefully you dont remove the access to this app that I pretty much love.

I am looking to see the app is removed from the PAID version as it was and only available in the FREE version.  If a club member, I would then want no ads in the app for you.  If not, then ads help to support the site.

 

You also just proved my point by saying..."I am a heavy mobil user and do not use the web version."  As such, this site, as well as others, will not be able to continue with no ads as people go more and more this way using a mobile app.   

 

I thank you for being a club member.

David, 

 

how does the ads in the site or mobile version works?  do you guys get revenue per "click"?  if so, I would be happy to click on some just to help the site.

 

Is there a limit of "clicks" per user?

Most now a days for 3rd party ads are pay per click.  Sometime you get paid via per 1000 ads shown if they target your site.  The best way a site can make income is selling ads direct to sometime vs using a 3rd party.  But now a days, that is much harder sale to make. Not like it was years back.

 

But thank you for asking.

Got the new app. Nice to see the updated design again. The participated and subscribed topics were really old, and I got a bunch of network errors, but signing out and back in fixed everything.

The iOS app is timing out. I am posting this from the mobile skin in safari. I can't figure out how to access my subscribes or participated threads. Hopefully it's an easy fix.

Thanks!

TapaTalk's new rollout has been giving us and other IP.Board issues.   I just put back the old version of the plugin.  Hope that solves the issues until they can fix it.

Thanks, that fixes the app. So I guess that narrows it down a bit!

For some reason my app keeps crashing today. I uninstalled and reinstalled it but that didn't help. Any known issues?

Just uploaded to Apple a new version today as their was reported random crash issues in the last version that TapaTalk addressed with this new one.  So as soon as it gets approved by Apple and you can download, I hope you will be all set.

Cool. Funny thing is right after I read this and swiped to go back a page, it crashed. Speak of the devil eh? Prior to that I haven't had too many crashes, but then again the app was just recently updated a few days ago.

Yeah he submitted the new version to Apple. What's perplexing is how was the last version approved? What's the point in the Apple approval process if they don't really QC the app? I noticed it crashes often on large threads.

I honestly don't think they do. Too many approvals they have to go through. They probably just check to see if it meets requirements, and that's it.

No idea what that meant above, but I can say that as of this morning, the new app was approved by Apple.

I updated it but it just crashed a little bit ago after clicking back. Tell you what I'm gonna do... Delete the app completely and then reinstall it from scratch. I've seen that fix an odd bad update from time to time with other apps.
