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.

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

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.
