VMB now available on tapatalk

Post by glg »

I setup the board to be viewable on Tapatalk, which is a forum reader app on smartphones. The app is free for readonly access or $2.99 for one that allows posting too.

I have an Android phone and have been playing with the readonly for a bit. It's pretty cool, you login normally, it gets the read/unread posts right. When you read a post in it, it shows read in the browser, etc. Haven't bought the Pro yet and tried posting..

Here's some promo stuff they have on their site:

The freebie lets you read, so you can check out the interface before you buy.

It does not have any mod/admin stuff in it.

What phone do you have? I have the Samsung Captivate (AT&T's version of the Galaxy S line).

Did you search for and find the board? That should allow you to read. On android, there's a button at the top right to login, looks like an arrow pointing into a door I guess. Same login/pass as the board. Then you should be able to post.

Yeah, I found it. I was ready to give up and accidentally hit that part with my finger, lol.

Anyone else unable to connect via tapatalk? Just happened within the last few days, I think after an update. Can't figure out if it's something on my end or not.

Just checked it and it worked okay for me. Maybe they had some downtime?
