FSB on tapatalk

Is this forum ever going to feature a more smarphone friendly interface? I did a quick search but couldn't find anything......

Tapatalk is not so attractive for forum admins: mobile theme vs. Tapatalk on the phpBB forum.
A mobile theme would be more appropriate here.

Sure, a mobile theme works just as well.

But it's not true that users have to pay for the tapatalk app, it's free in the amazon app store.

Isn't that why they bought an iPhone in the first place? To show of how much money they have? :hmmm:

Quote from the Tapatalk site:
Our monthly subscription license is $29/month per forum and per mobile platform. Or $39/month for both iOS and Android (A one-time $99 setup fee is required). Bulk Rate available upon email request.
This is for the forum owners, if I understood right.

Another and more serious problem is (from what I read on the phpBB forum) that Tapatalk affects both the normal forum and the ads previously in place. How do you think this forum's costs are covered?

About the mobile theme - there are already free mobile themes for phpBB. And I'm sure there will be some volunteering right in this forum (I already offered my help).

I could install a responsive theme, that would be a way better route than a mobile based framework. Those never work correctly. The problem is with metalanguage though. What will look good to me in English might look like a steaming pile somewhere else.

I'm just a lurker in here, and soon will go back into the shadows.

I exumated this thread just to let you know that Tapatalk is now free for all, including iOS.

I agree that a Responsive Site (for mobile) is a great idea and mandatory, but the folks that use Tapatalk (like me) greatly appreciate the fact that you can manage and browse hundreds of forums inside the same app (just one icon on the screen, in a smartphone it is a must!), and the app has visual and sound alerts for when something happens in one of the forums. Even if you put the http link to FSB website on the smartphone screen, it just sits there and does nothing.

I keep forgetting to visit FSB because nothing reminds me of it. I'm an old fart with a lousy memory, brainrot and all, so an app that draws my attention to Frestompboxes would be nice.

Just my to BRL pennies, which are worth nothing these days, and back to the dungeon.
