Taken from a post by a previous member on November 24th 2009,

Members on our forum have requested this mod as we can not install the mod at present Sad i have searched and found very little with regards to the above mentioned mod which in this day and age is a must have i would have thought for easy access for those members using mobile phones to access the forums.

Quote "While looking for ways for the board I am associated with to have an interface I came across the TapATalk solution( www.tapatalk.com) . It is a software piece that takes a phpBB 3 board (which Forumotion is able to use) and can turn it into a clean interface for an iPhone or iPod touch. The product itself is completely free to forum hosters. While trying to see if I could add it to my specific board I learned that it would not be possible, but I could suggest it in here.

So I am hoping this suggestion gets a little attention from the people who run Forumotion. It seems like a win win for everyone involved.

The users would get the ability (after getting their client) to view forums written in a clean interface that looks like the normal iPod and iPod Touch applications. To the user it would be as easy as installing their application. They are working on an Android and a Blackberry version as well.

To hosters the of the boards (Forumotion) they would be able to easily add these capabilities without development or licensing cost (the software itself is GPL) and could add it as soon as they please. I tried it testing on a private installation of phpBB 3 and it worked instantly. No hassles. I know it would take some planning but in the grand scheme it seems like it would be one of the easiest advantages to add.

To the developers of TapATalk they would get to sell a lot of their clients (which are very cheap for iPhone, $2.99). For all the ability it adds and makes it easier for the users it is a very fair price."


this mod is free to install and the user is given the choice to read only or pay for the app and they can post via the i-phone etc.
I would appreciate your reply guys

Somewhat of a turn off that you have to pay to post from the iPod when you can just use the web browser app and do it for free. Granted, it's somewhat more of a hassle to do, but it's saving me $3 that I could very-well spend on a more useful app or music.

Not entirely convinced.

Havent been on here in a few weeks, but came on especially to ask about this very feature.

Since I been gone, I notice a Facebook Connect feature has been added. Seeing as this was a little un-neccessary as you can just drop your Facebook page into your header anyway, hows about adding something REALLY useful like Tapatalk?

I'd really like to see this added. I have the app on both my iPod and Android phone and it would make browsing my forum so easy and painless.

Please implement ASAP

I also believe this would be good for forum-motion in general since it would generate more viewers which means more ads which means more money Wink

Im guessing its becuase of the advertisments that dont show up on your tapatalk app.

even though thats a crappy excuse not to do it.

I just got a news email from tapatalk.
I hope this is what was stopping forumotion from using this service, because they are allowing ads.

Here's a quote from the email

Code:

Activate Tapatalk, Monetize with Admob

House your own ads, or earn higher eCPM with in-app Admob integration with Tapatalk. Tapatalk for iPhone and Android allows you, as a forum owner, to insert Admob ads inside Tapatalk. For forum owners having their own inventory or local sponsors, Admob House Ads (Beta) is a great tool to feed your banners to Tapatalk. Already activated Tapatalk?

See, this is exactly what they needed to hear.

I strongly feel, that this is exactly why they wont do it.

But now that they can, and still make their money, then whats stopping them??

I hope so... this is absolutely the only thing missing from forumotion (for me)

I'm generally happy with everything else.

me too, but this is a deal breaker in my eyes. time will tell. Its not like it would be difficult for them to add it to the options. they already integrated facebook!

What the hell is wrong with tapatalk?
