Clear your cache then, works fine on Android 4, WP7, and iOS atm. You will only get a last page / first page button (if its needed).

the biggest thing is the lack of selecting the last post you gotta page and page and page..... I wanna be able to pick a page # to jump to in a thread.

Oh man, that is more annoying than you will ever know. I absolutely hate that.

My main beef with the current mobile site is that it's difficult to view larger topics. There needs to be a last-page button and/or a drop-down page selector. With that and the lack of an easy way to navigate to the front page and back keeps me from using it.

The day the site got updated that was the first thing I posted about.

Just loaded up the site on my iPhone and brought up the Guild Wars 2 topic and it went to the last unread post for me and I also see the first and last page buttons. Very nice.

I would love TaT as well. I like it a lot.

 

However knowing how IPB is with updates ... :( is all I have to say.

 

I have noticeable battery drain as well if I have this forum up on my phone, it drains really fast on 3G on my Gnex. 

 

I really hope IPB gets thier skinning problem fixed soon. They tend to have major skinning issues with version upgrades. I worked there and I took TONS of tickets where people would have theme issues!

What's so great about this Tapatalk application? I've never used it or seen it, and have no idea what it does. The mobile site works just fine for me.

Multi-forum application that allows you to use any forum in a more mobile friendly format regardless of the boards software, skin configuration, device resolution. It also saves bandwidth by not downloading extraneous resources. Also places all your forums in one app for ease of use.

A web browser also collects all your forums in one place and shows them at your devices resolution

Yes but you gotta pan and move around a lot for forums that don't have a mobile theme defined. Try using a forum that doesn't have a mobile theme... It's a pain, specially on a slow 3G network.

IMHO there is no need for Tapatalk support. The mobile forum works fine in Chrome on Android for me.

I know it works fine, however it would be nice to have TaT support. :)

But Neowin has a mobile theme for the forums. I'm able to navigate without an issue, no need to pan around with it.

I still miss darkside though :( It would have been nice to keep it and have a mobile version.

Does TapaTalk support ad insertion for sites like Neowin because if so I would see no harm in adding it? :)

It's not a matter of it doing harm. It's to do with the time that it would take to make it supportable when there is a perfectly good mobile view of the forums for us to use already.

I understand since the devs have already spent a lot of time and hard work coding the current mobile version.

 

No

I guess that means a lot of forums wouldn't support it then as ads are usually a big part of keeping the sites alive.

We already have a great mobile site, and we're already working on a responsive update to Neowin which will support all devices from large displays down to mobile (including the forums).

The single best thing about Tapatalk, IMO, is the notifications you get when someone quotes your post. 

 

I've resigned myself to Neowin not supporting it now though :p

We should be able to do that as well, like if it's a tile or something.. don't see why this shouldn't be possible.

That would be quite simple to emulate if you set up the email account you use for Neowin on your phone. I get lots of notifications sent to my phone from here. Just go to your notifications options and select the email check box for whatever notifications you want to receive on your phone.

I think Neowin already supports this (at least, there's an option in the user CP that I've just turned on). There's just no way of getting native push notifications.

Not a bad idea. I just usually find myself getting annoyed when I get e-mailed notifications like that. It's not really any different to getting push notifications, so it's all psychological.
