    I am so glad you posted this @revhtree! I recently downloaded the app and while I'll love being able to recieve mobile alerts, I wasn't excited about the app. overall. The mobile version is so much better! Is there a way to receive alerts other than email?

    love the full site in the browser and while i have tapatalk, i never use it.

    one thing i noticed is going from portrait to landscape and back the screen doesn't fully expand on the return to portrait. i can zoom in and everything is fine though. i'm using an iphone 6+ with latest updates. not a big deal but i'm wondering if anyone else has this issue?

    I prefer the mobile version for sure but the one thing I hate is that I can't attach photos to post directly from iOS Camera Roll. Every time I've tried, I get a "unsupported file type," so not sure if there is something can be done about that ;)

    Edit: here's an example when I try to upload a photo.

    I've always used the mobile version. Never knew I could add a link to my home screen though (I'm new to the iPhone). Thanks for sharing.

    I was using the app because I get notifications about content but the app wasn't updating properly. I'd get notifications and nothing would be updated. Was a PITA...

    Now using mobile and it's soooooooo much better although I miss the notifications

    David is the only one who owns an app that encourages people not to use it.

    Taptalk sucks anyway

    I have to agree - the mobile site is fantastic. Literally 99.5% of all of my activity here is on the mobile app!

    Just gave this a try and the mobile site is much better than the R2R app. Thanks for pointing this out.

    not really, that's the only "hole" IMO. I keep Tapatalk around because they have implemented "persistent" push alerts. What that means is that when you are watching a thread, you get a push alert for every single reply, whether or not you have visited the forum since the last reply. So you'll get an email for the newest one since you last viewed, but after that you don't get another email until you view the specific thread. Tapatalk serves that purpose for me, and that purpose only.

    I only use TT when I have to view a thread via my phone on a forum that doesn't use Xenforo. Because, the 90s are over man. Over.
