    I confess I haven't used Tapatalk in years finding that most of the forums I frequent do fine in Firefox on my mobile devices, particularly now with my Landscape Pro1 using Fulgaris, a browser optimized for the Pro1. But I'm sure it will turn out to be some ridiculous non-reason which will hopefully get corrected.

    Supposedly, a new version has been submitted to Google for approval. What changes they had to make... are unknown. Transparent as a brick.

    I had not heard that Tapatalk was pulled. I do enjoy using it - basically for Brighthand...

    I think I've asked this in the past, but what exactly does Tapatalk do/improve on? I admit that I pretty much exclusively check in on BH on a laptop.

    It's supposed to provide real-time notifications for forums. threads, PMs, etc, without need of email notifications. It can keep your forum credentials saved, and log you into all your favorite forums with just a click. It also allows for messaging between forum friends, outside of a specified forum through Tapatalk itself. It gives a more unified experience across all your forums.

    Me, I'm just sick of email spam, so getting notifications without emails is a wonderful thing.

    Notably absent, is proper integration with Xenforo forums for moderators. The tools provided are meager in contrast to what I could do when we used vBulletin while still holding super mod role. That's a tiny subset of users that would be impacted by such things though.

    Sounds good. I agree on the deluge of notifications etc. It's quite tiresome.
