I'm using Tapatalk more and more for my forum viewing, but LMLOCGB isn't on it :o

Any chance the forum admins could set it up? Here's how:

Thanks!

What are the advantages of this?
I've never use mobile versions of forums so am unsure of the benefits... don't really get a problem viewing stuff on my phone. If someone could let us know then we'll look into it (or advise you to get a better phone :D ;) :lol: )

It's a much nice user experience using Tapatalk. I regularly visit half a dozen forums, and they're all on Tapatalk except this one. Using the app, you can easily switch between forums, get instant notifications and so on. Viewing forums on a mobile browser isn't ideal as you're constantly having to pinch-zoom and scroll around, and have multiple tabs open.

I think that the ease of access is why I find I'm increasingly on the club's FB page rather than this forum. I know that in general forums are having a hard time because of FB, so anything that can be done to reduce the effect would be welcome in my opinion. AFAIK, the Tapatalk plugin is free, so it seems like a no-brainer.

BTW, I currently use several Android and iOS devices, including iPhone 5, Galaxy S4, iPad 10" and Google Nexus 7. I use multiple browsers on these devices (Chrome, Firefox, Safari).

If you want to see what it looks like, install Tapatalk on your phone/tablet, then search for Scooterotica - it uses the same phpBB platform as this forum :)

I second this,using the forum on safari is a pain in the arse and recently I have noticed its been running really slowly.

It appears to require installation to the server that hosts our website. I'll get hold of Martin our webmaster to see what he thinks, as we have a free hosting this might not be possible, but worth checking out considering we've now had a few requests to be more app based / mobile friendly.

It's looking like we are going to have to pay to update our hosting. Geezer has contacted Martin to get a ball park cost so we can work out the best way of paying for it and if it's worth it.

Can't happen soon enough as far as I am concerned.
