We're taking a hard look at replacing Tapatalk with Forumrunner. If you're a Tapatalk user, please take some time to check out Forumrunner and let me know your thoughts on it. It's a newer program with almost all the same features, plus more. It has a better moderator function for our mods, and some other stuff. It's also a lot less load on our server (which is the biggest attraction for us, quite frankly). Forumrunner is also built by the same people who make our forum software, so updates, bug fixes, and tech support is a LOT smoother. Also, Tapatalk is based in Asia, but Forumrunner is in the USA.
I will post a poll on it when we start testing next week, but if you have any thoughts on it now, it would be good to hear. Testing will last one week, and then a decision will be made.
We can get a branded version that we can sell in the App store to cover the cost (about $700). We can do the same with Tapa, but I'm not sure how important a stand-alone app is to our forum community. From the site's perspective, it extends our reach into the App store, which means we will reach people who don't currently know about our site. On the negative side, who wants to buy an app when they can get the same functionality for free? The price we are thinking of is around $1.99. What are your thoughts on that?
