OFL created the topic: Use Tapatalk on our forum

I personally do not use a mobile phone at all, I don't even own one. However, I know a lot of people use the forum from their mobile phones. I installed the Tapatalk application quite a while ago so that people can use our forum a lot easier from their mobile/cell phones. I came across a later useful YouTube advert today which I have included in this post. It will be great if someone could make something similar which shows how you can browse our website/forum.

that someone will have to tell me whether the forum works as well as what the demonstration shows. I think there is an update somewhere which I should probably install. Not sure how much improvement it will make.


I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

I use the mobile app on Samsung phones. Initially the galaxy s4 and just changed to galaxy note 4 this weekend. The tapatalk app is fairly easy but I'd give it maybe a 5 or 6 out of 10 on user friendliness. For the life of me I can't change my avatar from this faceless ginger kid to a pic of my O. I'm pretty savvy as I sell cell phones but I can't find it for the life of me. May have to do it from my laptop. I've always gone on here from my cell.

Changing your avatar on Tapatalk won't change your avatar on OFL. You have to do that from a computer.

I use Tapatalk in my phone and tablet and must admt found it a little difficult to drive. Might be very helpful if one of our Tech Gurus could do a small YouTube on using OFL on tapatalk lots of little things to discover?

I use tapatalk too 99.9% of the time. To update it to the newest version you actually have to go to the new app version of it. It won't just show up as an update for tapatalk. There are a couple issues with it. First is when someone post a link to another thread, it always takes me to a thread from 2006 and a post by the boss (OFL) saying something about the site being up for a week now etc...etc.. I use the regular site to follow other thread links now. Tapatalk has always done this to me. And I use the regular site to check private msgs. For some reason we don't have msgs available on tapatalk for OFL. I know I use other forums on Tapa as well and they do have msgs available. Not a big deal, don't get a lot of them. There are a few bugs with it as well that I'm sure they will fix soon in an update.

I'm going to stick with the 3.3 version then, I've never had any issue's with it loading the wrong post or threads. Seems to work just fine.
