As a forum supporter, I'd love to see this as well.
A mobile tapatalk app is much better than trying to read the forum in a mobile browser.

There's a FAQ which addresses tapatalk plug-in security: http://tapatalk.com/faq.php" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
(It looks very widely used, so one would think any security issues would've shown up and been addressed by now...)

If (when) tapatalk is added, I pledge to become a supporter the day I use tapatalk (have been considering for a while).

In many places, the only internet access I have is my iPhone. Yes, the tiny iPhone browser works but tapatalk is easy. This is the only forum I am in that does not support it.

Doesn't sound likely... See related Mobile access thread.

Ok, when the mobile access site goes live and works, then I will put up my few bucks toward site support...

I've been a tapatalk fan for a long time. If you've haven't used it, you really owe it to yourself to look into it.

It would only cost the forum $3500 or so.

It sounds like their issue is more of a security concern. From the previously mentioned thread:
wxxyz wrote:The TapaTalk plugin (and others) allows a third party complete access to user profiles and all other data in our site database. We don't like that idea, so we aren't going to use it.

We are working on a mobile friendly theme, but that is still a ways off.
That said, thousands of other sites use it anyway, so it's frustrating that we can't use it here.

I can say for sure that I find it very hard to keep up with MNL and have been a lot less active here as a result of it being so painful to use on my phone so if MNL is not going to use tapatalk, I hope that mobile theme comes along soon! :-(

There are other forums (e.g. AndroidForum) that have disabled tapatalk (after initially offering it), and lengthy threads appear there from people who are upset about that and talking of leaving the forum.

On the other hand, there are forums like PriusChat.com that have re-enabled tapatalk, and there are even some Leaf threads there...

It seems that the debate goes on as to whether taptalk is "safe" or not. It looks like many of the vulnerabilities were reported years ago and presumably fixed since then, but I can see that it might be difficult to figure out just how safe the latest version really is and it would appear that the tapatalk folks aren't helping matters (instead relying on the fact that thousands of other sites do still use it, which still does not guarantee that it is safe).
See: http://support.tapatalk.com/threads/php ... oval.9791/

Clearly it's easiest to "just say no" but I would prefer that the MNL admins would work with the tapatalk folks to find out if their specific concerns have been addressed or not. Or finish up that mobile theme. :-)

Tapatalk would be nice. I bet there would be more posts if tapatalk was available.
