I can only get it to work when I click "current" or "subscribed".  But like you I can't see the rest of the forums.

Hi...

 

We are aware of it but nothing we can personally fix.  This is a Forum Runner Issue and it running on IP.Boards.  Forum Runner is now owned by Vb.

 

Trying to get it resolved or we will move to TapaTalk if needed.   Please remember for now we do have a mobile skin for your mobile browsers.

Understood, but since it doesn't work with the new forum software why not just pull it from Google Play?

I do not have control over doing that.  They do.  I could tell them to pull it, but that then might stop any leverage I have over them $ wise.   After all, it is suppose to be working and not have such issues. I hope it will be fixed, but it really has been quite some time.

Very strange. All of a sudden it's working fine. I did uninstall/reinstall for the 12th time. Maybe that did it ??????

Hey Guys...Just now I sent into Google play a new Android App for DBSTalk.com that is powered by TapaTalk.  So at some point, two will show up.  DBSTalk (Forum Runner) and DBSTalk.com (DBNet, LLC).   the .com one is TapaTalk.  (Not sure how long it takes to show up in the app store.)

 

NOTE...I have never used it, so I have NO IDEA about the app.  So please help each other.   The old DBSTalk Forum Runner App will be removed at some point.  (Can't do it on my own and need ForumRunner to remove it and I have requested that.) 

 

(Apple iOS users reading this...I can not even upload the app to Apple until my account is approved.  Once that is done, I can upload the app and then that will need to be approved.  As such, it is all out of my hands at this time.  Sorry to say I have no idea how long any of this will take.  No idea at all.)

David, the app works great. Maybe this one will be easier to update and to add additional features.

Just a note...I have no control over the app functions.  That would be TapaTalk.  I just pay for the right to brand the app.  So any suggestion would go to them. ;)

I have tried everything from my Motorola Xoom wifi at the latest JellyBean available to it and the new app does not recognize my p010ne login?

David Brott was helpful and even tried my login with a password I supplied and he was able to login on his HTC Thunderbolt android phone!

I gave the app one star because it does not work for me!

I had an issue with the non branded Tapatalk 2 ios app logging in to any forum I tried.  After troubleshooting I found out the app has a password restriction itself, passwords can't be greater than 16 characters.  When I modified the passwords in question I was able to login successfully.

In this case I wish it was that easy.  Would not be the length in this case.  No issue logging in with his account on 2 other Android devices I have.  So it seems like an OS version thing.  (Apps, oh what fun.)

I really appreciate the effort David has exerted on my behalf; however, I have absolutely no idea what is wrong with the Motorola Xoom wifi? I suppose there is no tracing that can be activated on either end?

It is curious that the app doesn't complain about my login attempt but just presents the login register prompt and otherwise ignores me!

Why not allow access through the Tapatalk App for Android and IOS? I use it for XDA and AVS.

I also use that; however, I doubt that it has support to control Cutting Edge features (I am able to sign-in to many forums on it with my Jelly Beans)?

Good question that I will be happy again to give an answer.  Personally, I do not feel good allowing another company to make $ from our traffic.  You see, not only do they charge for the app, and it is a nice app, but then they make $ from the ads run on the app from our visitors.   I would rather try to have the ad money come in to help support the site operations vs going to someone else.  So I purchased, yes I paid for, the app to be branded for use on this site.  As such, it it free for the members to use and also, if we can recoup the cost, it may make a few $ for the site.  

 

If we end up not making anything for the site and thus loosing money, then we will need to discontinue it.  It will cost us $49 a month just to have both iOS and Android versions of the app PLUS good old Apple wants $99 a year for the right to be able to post the app. (And let me tell you, IT IS NOT AN EASY PROCESS!  Totally amazed anyone actually puts up with it.)

 

Hope this helps.  

 

Side Note...TapaTalk has been very nice to work with.  I have great respect for what they are doing.
