    Tapatalk is $2.99 at the itunes store or google android market (play).

    They occassionally offer a sale on the app for as low as .99. It happened twice in 2012 - I will make certain to post news of a sale if it comes up again.

    A free read-only version of tapatalk should be available on the various app stores. It allows you to read - but not post - on the forums.

    Note that one copy of tapatalk will allow you mobile access to the thousands of forums which use tapatalk as a mobile add-on (skin).

    Great! Now I got to use some of my $25 Google play credit for buying this.

    Awesome! It is tough to view this web site on a iPad so the app will be loaded tonight!

    I know this is a nice thing for people who live with a phone in there hand. Myself have no use for it. Is there anyway I can stop the little add reminder block from popping up everytime I get on the this site. It kinda reminds of someone trying to sell me something I don't need.

    Hmm, It should say "dismiss" on it - which does away with it for good! I'll check......maybe I can only show it to new visitors after awhile.

    I changed it so it will only show to folks who have not been here lately. But it is also dismissible.

    If you go to Latest -> Participated, you'll be looking at your Watched Threads list. Anyone know what the little orange star on the top left corner of half the avatars is?

    Oh... And it would be nice to see sig's!

    My guess is not -because, in theory, that would defeat a lot of the purpose (size).

    But I will check.

    Good point, and please don't waste much time on it. Maybe they'll include it in the next version as something you can see when you click on an avatar, or something along those lines.

    Cool app anyway!

    Yea I thought that at least you should be able to see it when you look at the profile.

    Yes, seeing signatures would be nice. I think the tapatalk signature is on. The app does help for forums, loads easier to post pictures.

    I wasn't too excited about paying $2.99 but in all honesty the app brought me back to hearth.com. I very rarely use my PC since I've had a smartphone for some years now, just don't have much use for it, but at the same time it's difficult to view and participate in forums with such a small browser. Love the app!

    It's $4.99 for the iPad. I'm passing on that for now. I can use the forum just fine with the iPad without tapatalk.

    Yeah... it's a bigger issue with the small screen of a smartphone. Although, don't you still have the problem with slow loading and the page shifting as it loads (always when you're clicking a link :mad:) in Safari on the iPad? Drove me nuts on the iPhone... which is why I bought the app!

    The slow loading only takes place when I have a weak signal. Otherwise, it is just like browsing on the desktop version of Safari.

    I think I only paid $2.99 for it. I've paid more than that for a cup of coffee.

    I can't get the silly pop up bar to go away no matter how big I zoom in on the screen on my phone. I have even tried using a stylus to try to push the "X" with no luck.

    It blocks most of the screen so I guess I won't be using my phone to surf this site much. Works fine on the laptop or my desktop puter.

    What pop-up bar? Are you using the web browser (eg. Safari) to browse the site on your phone? If so, try Tapatalk! That's why they implemented it. You won't regret spending the $3.
