    Default Tutorial: Mobile Device Application- iPhone Android & others

    The new mobile device application is hosted by Tapatalk. It is not a free application, but it is not too expensive (currently $2.99 for iPhone) and can allow you to visit many forums, including our other forums! It loads pages very quickly in a compressed format and also allow you to share and upload photos taken from your mobile device.

    I took the liberty of taking many screenshots so our members can check it out before making the purchase. Unfortunately it does not compress blogs or articles, so those would be viewed in your mobile device's normal state. Note these screenshots are taken with an iPod, it may vary depending on your mobile device.

    Here is the link for more information.

    Tapatalk - Forum App on the iPhone, Android, webOS, Windows Phone 7 (WP7), Nokia, and BlackBerry for vBulletin, phpBB, IPBoard, SMF and more

    Eventually we may take the plunge to provide a FREE application, but this is very costly to do and we do not have the funds available for this.

    Okay, lets get on with the photo tutorial!

    To view photos on the forum they are compressed into thumbnails, so far I see that all images show up, whether they are added via mobile device, photobucket, imageshack, or through EBN.

    I have it but keep forgetting to use it. I haven't taken the time to really get to know it yet. I did know about uploading pics on it. Guess I'm going to have to take time to play with it more.

    Yes you can upload directly from your iPad or iPhone. It is much faster to browse and read, but you don't get to see some stuff, only some smilies, you will occasionally see posts in bbcode. I love it for the speed.

    Some small child in my house... Not naming names deleted my tapatalk on my iPod touch! So I had to redownload it. Oh I was even more mad when it did not just say "install" on the app. Well I decided to get it anyway. Once I clicked "buy" a message came up telling me I already had it installed and it was a newer version (free). Yay!

    The newer version has better options and inserting photos is very quick and easier too, also you can connect to twitter. So if you don't have the latest version I recommend you search it.

    Inserting a test pic now for the first time -imageuploadedbytapatalk1340205444-766840-jpg

    Yes the settings have changed. Now you connect Facebook and make changes from the main page. So when you click on tapatalk, where it says English Bulldog News, there is a settings button at the bottom

    at the bottom of the screen BEFORE you enter into EBN... at the top is has two tabs, 'account / recommended'. On the bottom there are 5 buttons, per say, and one of them is settings

    @desertskybulldogs... that right?
