    Tapatalk

    I've recently picked up an Android phone and several of the forums I visit use the Tapatalk plugin making it a lot easier to browse them on the phone.

    Warning, I'm about to cut and paste the promotional blurb from Tapatalk's website, it explains things better than I can.

    Tapatalk is a mobile forum app for iPhone / Android and soon to be on Blackberry and Nokia. Tapatalk supports vBulletin (3.x and 4.x) and phpBB forums and forum owner can activate this service for free. Tapatalk supports all the usual forum functions plus full screen image viewing, image upload, caching (less reload), private messaging, all these features are accessible in just a few simple taps.

    I too would like this site to support tapatalk. It says it only takes about 10 minutes for an admin to set up.

    I would love to have this set up too! I'm a heavy phone user and being able to browse bikeforum from my phone would make me more of a regular poster/lurker than usual :-) I would definitely be able to benefit from the forum more in this way since most of the time when I could've used info here is when i'm out and about on my bike or in a bike shop or anything bike related. I do know that some forums generally have the capability to provide several themes where the members could switch to their preferred one once they log in, so maybe as an alternative, a mobile theme could be installed and be made available for us all who don't have tapatalk too?

    yeah, I'm wondering if there's any recent update to this. I have recently picked up an ipod and bought the tapatalk app (for other forum such as XDA dev) and would absolutely love to have a bikeforums.net access there.

    :EDIT:
    oh, just saw this thread. seems that there is an app in the work :-) I can't wait!

    Well, I'm new here and I can see you guys have been discussing about it for 5 years now. The final decision was to build a paid app. To date it has less than 100 users and it hasn't been updated in three years. I guess it wasn't as successful as they expected to be.

    Point is, if they wanted to make profit from it I guess $200 in three years is probably a lot less of the incoming traffic, increasing fidelity and new users (not to mention clicks on ads, which I don't know if it's possible on tapatalk) would have bring.

    Three years later... would they reconsider Tapatalk plug-in idea?

    I would welcome Tapatalk access. It's the gold standard of mobile forum access. Works from my Kindle too.
