Default Make Blowout Cards TapaTalk Native

For those who don't know, TapaTalk is a mobile forum app for Android and iOS. It's the best mobile forum app there is and would be extremely helpful to those who post from phones. All it takes is an easy download and activation by the website admin

Check it out here: Tapatalk

Millions of forums are already using it. It's completely free to Blowout to install. It would allow the site to bypass the time and money that goes into building a mobile application themselves, and a forum on TapaTalk is very well done. Sleek, easy to use, 100% accessibility to all features including viewing and posting images. No reason not to do this, IMO.

The only catch is, I believe, it costs about $2 for users to download the app from the Play Store or Apple Store. But that shouldn't be a big deal to just about everyone here. Very much worth it.

I'd love a mobile version of this forum to download on my Droid.

There is definitely a need for a more modern mobile layout. A simple CSS update for the exisiting mobile template would be easier and cheaper (FREE) for everyone and would make it seamless for users clicking links from their PM/subscription emails and going to their browsers. It also saves people from having to hit cancel on the SUPER ANNOYING "Download Tapatalk?" message everytime you go to a TapaTalk site. I'm sure there are even some more modern mobile templates available for vBulletin. It's just a matter of getting it implemented.

who is they? and where is it? I can't find it in the playstore. there is a 3rd party app that some of us use already. It's a little hard to deal with but can get the job done on the fly.

Blowout staff made the forum compatible with tapatalk and it looks GREAT. Just search tapatalk in the play store. It is not a free app.
