Android/iPhone/BB/Nokia Users - Tapatalk for SS.org??

Discussion in 'Feedback & Suggestions' started by djpharoah, Oct 12, 2010.

Should SS.org enroll in TapaTalk since we don't have a Mobile Website?

  1. Yes - sounds like a good idea.

    So recently I've been doing research on my incoming Android smart phone and thought why don't we get ss.org down with Tapatalk.

    For those who don't know Tapatlak is forum based software on your smart phone where you can post on forums without heavy browsing of the page like most currently do. You can subscribe to your fav threads, reply to them etc via the software. It saves bandwidth for those of us on limited data plans.

    Here's the link - Tapatalk - Forum App on the iPhone, Android, Nokia, and BlackBerry for vBulletin, phpBB, IPBoard, and SMF

    Yeeeesssss, I've been waiting! :lol: I hate browsing ss.org on my phone because it takes forever and it takes forever to log in. It never remembers me. Tapatalk should happen! I already have it on my Blackberry. I don't have an Android or Iphone obviously, but I think I remember it saying it was free for Blackberry users or something. I don't exactly remember. Just make sure it is available for BB and I'll be super happy.

    I don't mean to thread hi-jack, but if you're on an iPhone i recommend using google reader to subscribe to the ss.org RSS feed, then using an app called Reeder for the iphone. Here's what mine looks like - http://i.imgur.com/Cp1rb.jpg

    fastest/easyest way ive found to browse ss.org.

    It makes mobile browsing less bandwidth heavy especially on forums. I already use it on a few of my bike forums, XDA developers, androidcentral forums etc etc.

    I'm all for it, considering the bandwidth hog the full version is. :)

    Oh goodness please no, at least if SS.org went this route please include the link for full site.

    Sounds like a good idea as so many people are using Tapatalk now. Myself though, I browse SS.org on my Droid 2 with no problems. Loads mega fast, easy to browse and use. But yeah, definitely do the Tapatalk since so many use it and love it.

    If Tapatalk was installed, I'd get it.

    Nice to see more interested parties in this - I use Tapatalk way too much for my other forums. Makes online forum browsing on my android a lot easier and not to mention faster.

    Make this happen already! :) When I am away from home and bored, I have to browse other forums since SS loads waaaay too slow on my Blackberry. If this happened I would have access to SS at all times and I'd never be bored! :lol:
