TheSite.org boards on Tapatalk mobile app

We've taken another step to make the Boards more accessible on mobile by integrating them with the Tapatalk mobile app. Tapatalk is a generic third party app that provides access to online communities using forum software like TheSite.org.

Tapatalk is a paid for app £1.99 on Android, £1.99 on iPhone and $3.99 on Blackberry. There's a free client app available (that's ad supported) called Convo on Android. Convo has only basic functionality.

We should stress Tapatalk and Convo are a third party apps- so this is not money going to YouthNet :( It's meant to provide another option for getting on the Boards on mobile. We're still looking at providing a free mobile app customised for the Boards. This is still in development though for now.

We've been testing how Tapatalk works with the boards over the last week or so. It's not perfect, but it provides an alternative way of accessing the boards on mobile with much more functionality than currently exists with the boards mobile style.

We'd be really interested to hear what you think about this way of accessing the boards, in particular, if you already use Tapatalk for other forums.

    That's nice to hear. I use it already for other forums so it's a useful addition :)

    Not a big deal but I thought you should know: the Valentine forum is not accessible.

    I got a notification saying that the tapatalk API on this forum is outdated. It's probably because I upgraded to Tapatalk 4. It's working fine, except for notifications (which I wasn't using anyway) so to me personally it doesn't matter, I just thought you should know if you don't already.
