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

 

It is a Tapatalk based branded app.

Interesting. I always thought that hiding forums was a standard feature of vB, IPB, and all the forum software.


It was a userCP option in VB, but it appears IPBoard doesn't have it as a standard option. Anonymous also should be a UserCP option and it's not.

I thought is was talkin about in the USER CP vs the - thing you click I do believe. (In the USer CP as a Club Member you can hind them.)

I also think the - thing is a cookie setting that is stored. (I think) If that is the case, the app would not know. ;)

The old ForumRunner app did honor the hide forum or anonymous UserCP options in VB. the Tapatalk app might honor the anonymous preference if it was a UserCP setting, non branded does honor it for VB based sites I visit.

A positive change of this new app is when posting to a subscribed thread you don't lose your subscription.

Well the good news is that we are not running the current version.  The branded version of the current version is still being worked on.  So what I am saying is, their is hope. :)

I noticed that my post count is different between the new branded app and the web version of the site. The branded app shows a higher post count. I'm not worried about it, I just thought it was a bit odd.

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

I hope the Hide Forums ability returns to the branded app. That is a nice feature. Also I noticed that when quitting the app and going back into it that it reverts back to the Latest tab when I was last on the Forums tab.

That can be changed in the app by going to the more tab, click Edit on the top right and rearrange the tabs so Forums is on the far left..

Nice catch. It is strange though that the regular Tapatalk app remembers that setting though.

I guess that is due to the iPad showing all the options already onscreen. Unlike an iPhome only shows a few and to see the rest you need to select more.

My guess as well. Hopefully, with the updated branded app, that issue will be resolved. I remember this being an issue in the Tapatalk app a ways back and it was resolved. I'm hoping that the updated branded app will have that fix as well so that it remembers what tab you were on when you exited the app.

They do Android just fine for me...maybe it is your Xoom and the version of the OS or something on it.  (Or some app on it making for an issue...firewall or something....not idea, just a thought.)

Tapatalk obviously has no skills doing Android - their Satelliteguys android app doesn't work for me either (their plain old vanilla android app works great for all my forums; however. They just have no skills in rolling something else out in android!)
