    For those with iphone, blackberry or Android devices tapatalk is a great app to view forums such as this one. Thanks go out to the admin for activating it here.

    I brought this application up to Mike several months ago. It is an app for the ipod touch or iphone which stops you from having to view the forum in the browser. It converts everything so that the posts/threads are formatted to fit and be user friendly. This is a very big positive step for the site in my opinion. Mobil multimedia is here to stay and this puts us right in the game!

    The change to the vBulletin software and the addition of the tapatalk application are not the same. They were just added at the same time since they were paying for the server work anyway.

    Mike doesn't make money off the app, he makes money off of advertisements from the site. Providing the option for a iphone interface is good business sense. If you enjoy the forum frequently and would like it to be more user friendly on your several hundred dollar ipod/iphone then the app which costs less than a gallon of gas may be worth it to you. The app also works w/ other forums. I believe glocktalk for instance is also compatible.

    The two are unrelated - tapatalk functionality was installed at the same time as the forums site upgrade simply because I was in the system at the time. Made sense to kill two birds with one stone.

    Also tapatalk is quite independant of these forums - Mike doesn't get any money from people buying the app. Its just installed to give you an alternative to using the browser in your smartphone.

    Well worth $2.99 in my opinion. Using browser to view forum on a 3.5" screen is not very user friendly. With tapatalk viewing forum is quick and easy with my Android phone. When people complain about .99 or even $3 for a app that really works well it cracks me up. Takes a lot of work to make a good app.

    I saw the option come up while I was cruising the site a few hours ago from my Iphone, I think I'll buy just because I frequent the site quite a bit while away from home...
