First topic message reminder :

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

forumotion can't add TapaTalk because they use phpBB2 server software, and TapaTalk requires server software written in this millennium. I suppose forumotion could write their own TapaTalk support code (the API is available to do so), but that would be just plain dumb given the security holes in the phpBB2 server code.

So if you want this, and MANY MANY other features, start a campaign to get forumotion to upgrade their server software -- because topics like this are WORTHLESS until the server software is upgraded.

That is the first sane response I have seen about this whole topic.

Thank You soo much!

A User

Post by titanshadow on March 19th 2011, 2:45 am

I am a forum user, I don't own a forum through here but I do use some that are here. I know admins of forums I participate in are all happy to install the tapatalk addon should they be able to but they are not able to. Admins are busy people, and I wanted to bring up that I truly believe admins should have access to the tapatalk features. One person mentioned the cost of $3 to be able to post. That is correct, the app is not free in its full version, the app makers do have to make money somehow. This allows them to provide the mod itself for free.

Moderation of forums is also now possible from the app as well. So an admin of a forum could do everything they needed to do in their forum during a bus ride to work or school. Any of the users could do the same, on a multitude of platforms.

I beg for the administrators of the site here to please add this addon to the sites so that users can have all the speed and convenience of modern mobile computing.

Well this good ad on but rather than having tapatalk (which we must pay) why dont we have forumotion to rush their R&D on the mobile site so we can also post there not only viewing... thats will be FREE and EASIER

I haven't heard anything. I hope someday this feature will be available. But I believe at the moment there are issues regarding compatibility on forumotion's servers.

Agreed. Why is this topic so taboo. Come on forumotion. At least give a real explanation as to why this is or is not possible. Tapatalk is huge. You're missing the boat on this one...
I can't believe this topic is so ignored.

Yes, that's what I thought, too.
Very sad.

Now it's possible to have Forumotion forums in PhPBB 3, so Tapatalk could be implemented.
Is there any admin listening?

Edit: sorry, I have now read this

I hope something can be done in the future.

No official response? I find that unusual. If tapatalk doesn't fit the business model, please tell us. If it does and having trouble implementing it, let us know. If a new mobile version is better, do that! But with the influx of mobile devices, the current setup is not cutting it. We need to be able to post from mobile devices!

One thing guys and girls

I really can not see this going to be put on our servers the votes are to small and you will not get an admin or tech even look at it if you do not have well over 900 votes lol
It just goes to show not a lot of members want this or there would be more votes by now..also for the length of time the poll's been open there would have been some thing by now.

The Tech do not even look at all this anyway lol we don't even have a tech on this site only pro admin and they don't even reply to any threads here ..

Sorry to give ya bad news but it's gonna be a no by now
