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)?

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

 

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.

Understood. I don't recall seeing ads on the app. No complaints. Thanks for the info.

Nice to read.  Please also be aware we are now testing a new app... Topify.  See other thread if interested.

Motorola Xoom 4.1.2.  It was working great until 3 releases ago.  Even the one that came out today still hangs on the initial splash screen.  I uninstalled and rebooted.  Still doesn't get past the initial splash screen after re-installing.  Something changed 3 releases ago.

 

Todays app is version 2.4.13.9.

 

Sadly, I didn't backup the older version to try reloading it and see if it still works.

jkane, you can try using the FREE version of the TapaTalk app and then look up DBSTalk to use the site.  Thank might work for you.

The latest dbstalk app allows me to open links to other forums using the app. I clicked on xda developers from the browser and I was able to browse that forum using the dbstalk app. Sent from my YP-G1 using Tapatalk 4
