Ah bugger. Don't even notice the sub forum with the Latest Posts function be it app or website. :eek:

Just assumed iOS went the way of Blackberry by now. :p

This looks suspiciously like the old browse function to me? Tap on forum name top left.

Hi all

I've run out of patience with Tapatalk, are there any alternatives similar to how Tapatalk used to be when it was simple and easy to use? I can't believe how they've messed this app up over the past year or two, the new update is the nail in the coffin for me.

Thanks.

Haven't read through the thread yet, but also on the hunt.

The latest update is the worst - the Topic Headings are now so large that on the iPad I can only see two topics at a time (before scrolling the massively oversized forum name tile).

Tapatalk pro has been discontinued on apple App Store. Cannot buy it. Looks like we are stuck with the crappy free version. I have tried to submit a negative review but it's doesn't seem to go through.

Seems your review has been processed.

That looks suspiciously like an android device in the attachment?

:D

The UI is gone to schit.

@PP try the pro version, it's a lot closer to what it used to be. Can't believe we have to pay for what we used to have...

I did pay for mine! :mad:

I don't mind paying for apps that are genuinely useful and that I use all the time - the latest update is just shyte!

They dumbed it down for the average 10 year old and Apple user.

Anyway the Pro version still works as before if you're willing to fork out a few bucks. It's cheap but it's not something we should have to pay for...

They fcked it up on both Apple and Android.

They did away with the "browse" function/button so Tapatalk is now useless

If you tap on the Forum Name (in the middle of the Orange bar) you can then browse to subforums, etc.

I just hate this new LARGE approach which basically gives you a maximum of 3 topic headlines at a time.

Lol, just found that the pro version I'm using was retired at the end of May! Oh well seems I'm better off using it than the current one

I've never liked tapatalk, best alternative is the good old browser and mobile VB theme ;) actually... that's not the alternative but the standard!

NOTHING beats tapatalk or the mobile version for myBB

A browser will Never be able to deliver the notification and ease of use and navigation.

I never visit the browser Ever.

I also prefer the Tapatalk app.
I participate on several forums and it is just easier to use the app.

I do have to use the browser as well.

Unfortunately the Tapatalk app sucks when it comes to Admin or other moderation.
You need to login via a browser.
I can't even approve new members via Tapatalk.

For admin yes indeed then I also use my browser for sure.

Was more referring to the general user

Why does everyone hate Tapatalk so much? Works fine for me.

Seriously, my only complaint is that it doesn't support polls.

I think everyone hates the changes to the UI that have been made over the past year or so. Making it pretty should not come at the cost of making it less functional or intuitive...
