Forum usability on mobile devices - Tapatalk
« on: December 27, 2012, 03:10:30 AM »
Hello forum-readers!

This is an announcement that Suscipe Domine supports the Tapatalk mobile application.  You can download the client from Apple's iTunes store and Google's Play story.  It's $3 on both platforms.  I've used it in the past for XDA-Forums (an Android-phone modification forum), and it is pretty sleek.  There are screenshots and reviews on the different sites, so please check it out. 

I've found it to be a very convenient way to post from a mobile device (mobile/tablet/etc), and it lets you tag and subscribe to forums and threads.  It even adds a little signature to your posts from mobile devices.  So that's convenient to slightly-apologize for your bad grammar and horrible typos.

I hope you will reimburse us.

Nope.  haha.

I think the $3 fee for Tapatalk is far superior to having to use a mobile browser on a smartphone/tablet.  :P

Hmm, alright...

As long as this is a one-time thing and you don't start hounding us for money every month. ;)

Bahahahahaha.  No, I will not hold the forum hostage for money. 

Also, please note, you do NOT need to buy this app to use SD.  If you are having issues with accessing the forum, please let me know, and I will work with you to make your browsing and posting experience a pleasure here.

I posted this note regarding Tapatalk because I know a lot of people post from smartphones, and this app makes posting to the forum SO much easier.  Example, I'm doing it right now!  :)

I've been able to use the forum just fine on my iPhone without the app.

That is very possible.  I've had bad experiences with the use of my phone's browser for "normal" websites. 

And, Tapatalk has a great interface that makes posting and following different threads very convenient.

Tapatalk HD Beta is out. 

It is the beta of the tablet version for Tapatalk.  Free while in beta (meaning there will be some bugs to work out!), but you get a discounted price when it comes out of beta.

If you were interested.

I have the app and it makes it way easier to browse and post than the mobile site.
May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable,
most incomprehensible and ineffable Name of God
be forever praised, blessed, loved, adored
and glorified in Heaven, on earth,
and under the earth,
by all the creatures of God,
and by the Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ,
in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.
Amen.

Nope you're not.  I use it too.  It's much easier especially from a phone.
