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

 

It is a Tapatalk based branded app.

Very wacky behavior. Now getting "You are not allowed to use the private messaging system".

I'm thinking that something is screwy if you access from the App and a PC at the same time. I'm typing here, and playing with the app at the same time, with the erratic behavior.


The simultaneous use may be the cause. I just read my PMs through the app without any issues.

I was just able to get the unread subscribed count down to 0 by opening each thread, hitting PREV, then hitting NEXT, then it would reduce the count. Did it for the 8 threads, and now down to zero. Guessing that something is wrong with how it's tracking where you are in a thread.

As you reported in Forum Runner Support you have lost your invisible status now.

I think this is due to this being a per login option where as in vBulletin software invisible mode was set it and forget it (active always) unless you disabled it in UserCP.

 

When logging in via the Mobile Skin you have to select it each time as well, although I use LastPass Premium which will remember the anonymous check box (and the password of course) on the computer and mobile devices when logging in.

Hey Guys...Just an FYI...I am working on setting up TapaTalk with the site.  I am still taking with them and then it needs to be made as I want a dedicated app like we have.  So no idea on timing or how long it takes to get on-line with Apple or Android.  But wanted to say that I am looking at it as I am tried on the ongoing issues with ForumRunner and it not getting fixed.

 

One issue is..."Branded (aka. BYO) will becomes v2 beta in next week and will transition all BYO customers to v2 by end of next month or so."  So I am not sure if we will have the beta or the older version.

David,

 

I appreciate your desire to bring Tapatalk support to this forum (I personally think it's much better than Forum Runner), but the dedicated app just ends up in a folder somewhere because my home screen is already full of often-used apps.  I really like having a single Tapatalk app that takes up a single space on my home screen and lets me get to all of the forums that I visit.  I understand that you're trying to monetize from the dedicated app, but it's definitely a lesser experience for me.  I rarely visit this forum on my phone because of the dedicated app, while other forums are just a tap away.

Thanks...But I can not in right mind allow a company to make money off the site that also charges you for the app.  It't not right and the forum owner gets nothing for it, they they make $$$$$ off the ads that I can not even control.  Case in point, if you were a club member here, you would see the ads regardless even though you are a paid club member.

 

Sounds like you have to many apps.  LOL   And out new logo would look cool on your screen.

 

BTW...you can always just use your browser and a bookmark if you want it all in one place.  We have a mobile skin for the site that is actually quite nice.  :)

Just as an FYI... When viewing the site via IP.Board on my iPad or iPhone, I get a banner to try DBSTalk via Tapatalk, however, DBSTalk is not in the Tapatalk network yet.

Augh...I had to install it to start to develop the dedicated app...They did not say it would do that.  I have now removed the hook and I hope that stops the issue.

 

The app needs to be made, then I need to setup accounts with Apple and Google to get the app published.  I did not know I would need to do that all myself as ForumRunner handled all that for us in the past.  So a lot more to do to use TapaTalk than I expected or wanted. 

 

Thanks for letting me know.

With Tapatalk on iOS, there are currently three versions, soon possibly four.

There's the basic version (Tapatalk) for $2.99. There's the new version (Tapatalk 2) with the more modern UI for $3.99. And there's the iPad customized version (Tapatalk HD) for $4.99.

There may also soon be a Tapatalk 2 HD for the iPad.

The Quoord systems guys have been busy, they certainly get lots of favorable reviews and awards, and I've purchased every version since its only a few bucks and ad free, and available for most every forum as we move to a more mobile society.

What I wonder about is with a branded App, which of the flavors above will be supported.

Personally, today I use Tapatalk 2 on the iPhone and iPad, but will probably move to Tapatalk 2 HD on the iPad when it's released. I was on Tapatalk HD on the iPad until Tapatalk 2 was released.

I've not found any ads on any of the versions, for any of the forums that I follow.

For Tapatalk 2, there's also been 7 enhancement releases since Tapatalk 2 was released in December. Been updates on 1/3, 1/16, 2/5, 3/21, 4/13, 5/3, and most recently on 5/11.

 

I wonder how new releases would be handled with a dedicated app. The older Tapatalk had 14 updates during 2012.

Just curious.

As updates come out, we will need to upload them as they are released.  At this time the only one they off to us is version 1.2.1 of the app.  (Whatever that is.)  I am not aware of what is inside the zip file that TapaTalk sent me that I then needed to upload to Apple.  I am not sure if it both iPhone and iPad version in one file or what. I do know that it is not ver 2 as that is not yet released for the branded owners.  But have been told within the next month.

 

I just uploaded today the zipped app to Apple and now we are waiting for it to be "approved" by them.  (Apple does not make this at all easy.  It was the WORST process I have ever had to go though for something that should be so simple.)  So at this time we just wait.  Again, not sure, nor was I aware, their was a version for the phone vs the pad.  So I am guessing they are in the same file.

 

But this is all out of our control.  

 

And if they are releasing software that often, it does not make me feel good I will tell you that.

The regular version of Tapatalk is universal. The HD version is just a little more optimized for the iPad. I still use the regulars Tapatalk on my iPhone and iPad.

You lose anonymous status when logged in with the app (same as the Forum Runner branded one). I believe this is due to there being no check box option when logging in via the app. I think if they would allow you to set it once in the UserCP it would always be in use as it was with vB unless you manually unchecked it in the UserCP.

Not a big deal though, overall very nice app. Also like the fact that Club Members have no ads within the app!

The green was my bad...I missed the setting for the iOS app colors.  I thought that once I set my colors, it would be set for both apps, silly me.

 

I have made the change to be more like this main site.  Next time you restart the app, it will auto correct. (Note I said restart, like it needs to be stopped and reloaded vs put into the background.)

Thanks David.

Just restarted. Fabulous.

This is great, played with it and customized (settings) last night on the iPhone and iPad and it is perfect.

Thanks again for moving to a great mobile platform.

While the mobile skin is actually quite nice, having a true mobile app and one that is continuing to be enhanced by Quoord is even better.

And now it looks good too!
