    Tapatalk is a much MUCH better platform than the forums mobile site imo .
    I have (Tapatalk pro) cause I'm on many different forums and Tapatalk is better than their mobile sites too ...

    @Shaggy obviously you don't like Tapatalk we get it ....... but please stop trying to create a false brigade to get rid of it man .
    Having Tapatalk simply allows the forum to have more contributing members ....is that a bad thing ?
    I don't think so .

    Again, getting rid of tapatalk would be a bad move ... there nothing wrong with the app and I see a lot more members posting through tapatalk than the mobile or desktop version ... even though I am using the desktop version right now lol ...

    I run several other forum sites and I'm not overly interested in Tapatalk. I keep it on one site because it's working but the later versions of vB and XF have pretty decent native mobile support, I can't see the point. If it caused an issue, it would be an easy thing to dismiss. Other than turning it on so I can test my own forum, I don't use it much.

    To me that is not the point though flying ... the fact that everyone who uses it and has on these forums for the last few years are used to it and like it. Removing it would just throw them all a curve ball and possibly force them to stop visiting the site.

    Look I have ran many forums in the last 15 years, when "WE" which included the owners of the sites and myself as an admin made decisions that removed features that most members liked, the outcome was not good.

    There is nothing wrong with this website running tapatalk, there is no security risk by having TT on here and the worst that happens is some people for some reason get tons of adds and popups, something that "I" don't get at all here or on my own website.

    VB and XF have mobile versions yes, but they have their flaws and they are many ... Tapatalk runs very smoothly for an app that allows you to interact with any forum that offers it to it's members.

    If you spend more time on the desktop or mobile versions of any forum or website you will see a lot of latency and time of loading for those forums. With taptalk you don't have to worry about a page taking too long to load which is proven that turns away potential and even current members of any forum or website.

    My website and forums are very quick to load, but when I am in a hurry to post something or browse mine or these forums I use Tapatalk because I don't have to worry about the forums taking too long to load up. You get on the forums you read what you want, reply if you want and it's all smooth sailing.

    I really prefer TT.

    I do visit several forums although I spend more time reading than posting. I only have one post here.

    I prefer TT for the many reasons stated above.

    I found THIS site through TT, and I’m also intending to become a supporting member here very soon. I know that these forums don’t organize themselves, and we all need to make a living.

    I’m also enjoying the forum very much. Before coming to this forum, I didn’t know what a VP3 or UAQ radio was. Now I have bought a UAQ through this forum, received it Friday, and installed it Friday night in my wife’s 2016. She loves the upgraded radio.

    As an additional bonus, my wife won’t have anything to say when I pick up the OEM Alcoa wheels that she doesn’t even know exist from the polishing shop and put them on my Dually.

    Thanks to your forum and TT.
