Any chance we could get the forums set up for Tapatalk?  I find this app a far better tool for viewing forums on my iPhone than using a browser.

Thanks in advance,

AJC

I support this.
Tapatalk is the No1 forum reader for android and it is really easy to make a forum tapatalk-able.

Every time Tapatalk was requested at the BattleTech forums it was shot down. Bad, buggy code and security risks were the reasons. As this forum is running the same software (and probably by the same people) I would think it'll get shot down here as well.
Power corrupts.
Absolute power is kinda neat.

I hope not, but one never knows.  It would be nice to have a version optimized for mobile use...the Kenzer forums are a great example of this.

+1 for tapatalk, for what it's worth. I've used it on a few of my forums and on a few more I visit. I'm quite the fan.

I'm going to necro this topic, and mention that at least ENWorld and PCGen's forums use Tapatalk. Those are the one's I'm aware of.

So does Infinity (sci-fi miniature skirmish game) and Bartertown (online trading community, mainly focused on miniature games).

the fact that they haven't even answered our pleas for spoiler buttons to return leads me to believe we better just be happy with that we have now :(

They would tell us when they are fixing the spoiler button but.....that would be a spoiler :P
Do you believe in a greater WIRELESS, an Invisible(WiFi) All Seeing(detecting those connected- at least if within 100'), All Knowing(all online data) Presence that we can draw upon for Wisdom(downloads & updates), Strength (wifi boni) and Comfort (porn) or do you turn your back on it  (Go Offline)?

To be honest, as much as I'd love the Tapatalk plugin, if I had to chose, would much prefer them to invest the time (and/or money?) to update the website or the Battlecorp online store.

Amen to that. It makes me wonder how many people go to that website and then leave instead of poking one step further to the layers underneath

Damn good question. I hit the blog pretty regularly but don't delve deeper unless I want to check out the Crossfire page (typically only when they post something new). Most news/updates come from FB or Tumblr.
