Every time I close the browser window on my phone and come back I get informed that Zombie Squad is iPhone native, and Tapatalk will make life easier.

Confirm or deny? I've seen a few people with signatures that say their post was made using Tapatalk, any input would be appreciated. Basically, is the money worth it, or am I better off spending it on a few hundred rounds of .22?

I use it on occasion. It does work pretty well, too. I still very much prefer a web browser, but when you just have to flame someone from streets, nothing beats tapatalk! :D

Confirm.

I use it with my iPod touch, and it lets me reply and quote and add/take pics, and sort the forums by stuff that's new and stuff I've participated in, and even moderate threads and posts...

The adding pictures would be nice in some instances, especially since I spend most of my time in the gear section, but beyond that it sounds the same as running ZS from safari on my iPhone.

It's certainly worth $3 IMHO, for the increased ease of use and extra features as compared to Safari.

YMMV

It's a lot nicer to respond with than full browser on a tiny screen, especially with all the damn images and smileys and all that stuff that modern forums have. The few who have WAP pages (remember WAP?) are almost as good but you still get rendering weirdness. Tapatalk ftw.

I use tapatalk more than I use my laptop. Mind you I tried to upgrade my Zynga game bar & since then it's all gone a bit Pete Tong :(
I'm going to have to install a new browser :mad:

Rather than start a new thread I'm having a problem with Tapatalk on my iPhone and on my iPad but only with this forum...

If a post is longer than just a couple of lines, I can't see the full text of the post in Tapatalk. For example, in my introduction post over in the introductions forum, I can only see as far as "(bit of a slingshot fan, although I only have two at present!)" in my original post and "ZS Forum Guidelines:" in wee drop o' bush's response and I have to switch to viewing in Safari to see the rest of the posts!

On other forums, if a post is long, Tapatalk displays a "More" button which when pressed displays the whole post for reading, but that doesn't appear for me here??

Is anyone else who uses Tapatalk (or Tapatalk HD) having the same problem?

Tapatalk can be very buggy. An earlier update left it unuseable, but after dreadful reviews they fixed this.

I created a Tapatalk forum account & now report any problems there.

I mostly use Tapatalk for here, but always review the days posts on my laptop. That way I can view the gifs, videos, sigs etc that Tapatalk doesn't display.

Ok, got it working now on the iPhone.

According to tapatalk forum it's because the forum is using an out of date plugin, so the workaround until the forum owner updates the plugin is to turn off BBcode support in tapatalk settings.

That's solved it for the iPhone and normal tapatalk, but tapatalk HD doesn't have that setting option.

I'll switch to back to normal tapatalk on the iPad for the time being.
