Tapatalk is back

Post by crypto » Tue Sep 16, 2014 9:42 pm

I just re-installed Tapatalk on the forums for our mobile users.

I notice that the premium pay-for version was recently made free for everyone, so I would expect there to be yet another $5 premium version up for sale soon.

I tried to turn off all the sketchy crap that they enable by default.

I'm still not a fan of it, but we're going to try to support it again because so many of you damn kids use it a lot :D

Let us know how it works here, please. I'll close this topic in a couple weeks.

And also also, please note when the tapatalk app hijacks links people post and you see them running through tapatalks server before being redirected to the actual site you wanted to go to, that's not us either. We turned off all the link monetization stuff.

I swore off Tapatalk after they tried to make me pay for their product multiple times. I'm now using Forum Fiend, which is built on Tapatalk's API but seems to have a less sketchy developer. So far, I have had no issues except that a photo I posted in Chat Thread is upside down. I don't know if that's a ZS thing or a Forum Fiend thing.

More updates as events warrant.

ETA: In case I haven't said it already, thank you for turning Tapatalk back on. Using a forum app is much easier than using Artodia Mobile Style.

Thanks so very much. Most of the time I have to read the forum is when I am driving to and from work, sitting at stop lights. Now that Tapatalk is back, my commute is much less painful!

I gave tapatalk a chance for awhile, but whatever version I was using sucked. But I just bought a shiny new phone a few days ago and am willing to give it another chance.

I never liked the interface of tapatalk. I personally just use my web browser on my phone.....

Try Forum Fiend. So far, I'm liking it better than Tapatalk, and it works on any Tapatalk-enabled forum.

Forum Fiend still says it can't find the Tapatalk API here. Odd.

Towanda, try editing the URL you use to get to the ZS forums and change it from http to https.

We forced all web traffic to go over the secure port yesterday, and I suspect thats what broke both tapatalk and forum fiend. I edited the tapatalk.com dashboard today, which updates all tapatalk clients, but you probably have to edit Forum Fiend directly.
