    I was wondering what version to buy so I can use my iPad and phone to check in here.

    Good question Mark!  I didn’t really know much about Tapatalk when I purchased it.  I just typed in Tapatalk in the Google Play Store.  I don’t know if there are really different versions.  The tapatalk app just automatically dowloaded Tapatalk 2, which must be the latest version.  May be able to search tapatalk on a browser and see if there are different versions.

    How does Tapatalk help.  I use my phone and computer to access as I always have.

    What advantage is it to use Tapatalk?

    When I was on here last night I could not post using my iPad. I searched the Apps store for tapatalk and found three; one for forums, one for iPhones, and another tapatalk HD or 2. I was looking at the versions and the one for forums looked to be the correct one for accessing here and using both the phone and pad. I thought one or more of you gals or guys have figured that one out.

    Tapatalk just puts the forum in a format easily usable on the phone.  Makes it look similar to Facebook… No more zooming to read on your phone because all the fonts are appropriate sizes etc.  It doesnt have ALL of the functions of using the forum on a PC but it’s a WHOLE lot easier to follow and keep track of.

    There are sections for each forum, unread posts, only posts you participate in, etc.

    On most forums there is a section for Private Messages but that hasnt been activated here yet.

    Hope this helps.  BTW, I am using Tapatalk 2 because guys on other forums said it was worth the extra $1 over the original version.  I have never used the original version so I have no basis for comparison.

    This is how I read it:

    Tapatalk for Forums – Works across multiple Devices
    Taptatalk 2 – Works on Iphone
    Tapatalk HD – Works on Ipad

    So if you want something to work on both devices you’d need to go with Tapatalk for Forums
    Or you could pay for Tapatalk 2 for your phone and Tapatalk HD for your Ipad but that would be $10 for 2 apps… a little pricey IMHO when you could get the original version for $3.99 and it would work on both.

    That’s a great help. I think if I buy it for one device and I have them linked it will be functioning on both as well.

    Are you able to send PM’s, and see all pics, including the ones you have uploaded? What phone are you using.
    I use both tapatalk for forums, and tapatalk 2. They are both basically the same, just formatted a little different. Tapatalk for forums is a little easier to use.

    Nope I can not see pictures with Tapatalk just the written stuff. I’m using a iphone 3 and 4th gen ipad. On the ipad I’m thinking I might use the google chrome apps and see if it does more for this forum. Maybe this weekend I can work with it some more. But if it’s like the other browser Safari I can see stuff and pictures very well but can’t post.
