I use it for all the forums in one place and to upload pictures without having to resize them etc. Good for when we travel or have to wait in line somewhere and don't have or want to use the laptop. Its all in the phone and don't have to open a browser and go between sites. Just sayin :)

Someone said to me the other day," oh how do you find out what's going on then?"
I Just laughed and said, "I can't tell you it classified." :o

As much money as Samsung pays Apple for patent infringements you probably have a I phone with a Samsung name  8) I don't like either but I phones are easier for me to use "ok Google" has a problem with the Texas language.I will never pay over 800 bucks for a friggn phone that will never happen with me, ;D for 800 bucks I could buy 2 boxes of fine Cuban cigars and enjoy those

I never buy a new phone. The last few phones I have bought were 1 to 2 years old. I wait until a new model has been out for several months and then buy the previous model at a fraction of the cost. Works for me.
Some are called, some are sent, some just got up and went.

So if I'm reading this poll correctly, a third of the forum prefers to access via tapatalk. Let's keep the forum alive and bring it back. I've noticed several of the regulars have been a lot less active since its been dropped. That's not great. Let's also not make hurdles for new people getting involved. I found this forum through tapatalk and it would be great if others could also.

Gary, any update on Tapatalk re-integration?

Thanks!

Ditto. Lots of the younger generation coming into the hobby are using apps like TapaTalk much more than browsers. I'm pretty much an old curmudgeon, and even I prefer the app for accessing the various forums I participate in.

It just occurred to me that there is a serious flaw in the methodology of this survey...

If a member was using TapaTalk to access the forum, if that was their only way to read & participate in the goings on, and now that is not available, how are they going to possibly respond to this survey? TapaTalk doesn't give any indication as to what's wrong, just that there was a 'server error'. They wouldn't even know that you've asked the question.

Perhaps it would be possible on the admin side to review the list of those most active before the update and loss of TapaTalk with the list of those active after the updates. There were a few forum members that were quite active before the update that we hardly see on the boards anymore.

Just sayin'
