I have seen a large number of posts that have been written using 'Tapatalk'. I have come across adverts for this this ap. but have never looked at it or tried to use it. What if anything does it do that would be an advantage over just posting normally?

Thanks, Mike

Taptalk is for mobile phones, simplifies the Forums to make threads and posts more accessible on a tiny screen.

So if you see that it means the reply was made from a mobile phone.

The word Tapatalk always reminds me of the slightly comical scene and song Happy Talk from South Pacific.

I am not sure why

I can't get along with it. But that probably says more about me than the app!

I'm with you there, Marty. I haven't tried paying for the app, though: it might be more useful that way.

I use it for FADU and some other sites I visit. It works well on iPhones. It doesnít allow viewing of the whole site. The galleries arenít accessible.

Thanks, all, for your replies. I think I will stick to my existing systems. I seem to be able to access FADU satisfactorily on my Kindle Fire which approximates to an all singing and dancing mobile phone and I am not regularly involved in any other Fora. I will forego the pleasures of Tapatalk and handing more data to these voracious Internet scavengers.

Lost and Alex are right,

I use it for a read of the forum during the day (during a work break ehhem!) and the occasional quick post from my Android phone, it's not as good as using the forum on a tablet or a laptop as you can't see photos and the layout is simplified.

I prefer to post from my laptop if I can as it's nice to see people photos.

BTW, I use the free version, I don't know what the paid for version does better.

There you are! That will be the version they call Happy Tappy Tapatalk

The corona isolation had to get me in the end
