Tapatalk?

Are the new forums going to support Tapatalk.

I tried removing the old entry I had and tried to add it back but it says it cannot access the forum.

    A dang, just saw the last item on the FAQ. Bummer :(

    Can't seem to figure out how to edit posts.

    Sorry about that!

    (It should be possibly to edit posts mobile, but otherwise it's the gear at top right, unless there's a permissions issue.)

    Boo. Grown to love tapatalk.

    Same here, I really liked reading the forum in Tapatalk as i'd usually come across topics I wouldn't normally see. Also a great way to browse unread topics.

    Why is every 'upgrade' for forum owners a 'downgrade' for actual users? Let's hope this isn't a disaster like some other forums went through when they switched to 3rd party platforms that promised th e world (HTF, AVS, etc)....

    And keep you silly badges.. This isn't kindergarten....

    Yeah, this is a big loss :-(

    They say that Vanilla doesn't support tapatalk, but...

    Tapatalk DOES support Vanilla

    Hosted Vanilla doesn't.

    Last I can see is that the tapatalk plugin isn't approved by the hosting site - https://support.vanillaforums.com/discussion/comment/8891/#Comment_8891

    Doesn't look hopeful either that it will happen any time soon.

    @elan Do you guys have any metrics on the how many users were utilising Tapatalk via the old IP Boards forums?

  • fouxfoux Posts: 597Members, Plex Pass, Plex Ninja Plex Ninja

    I guess a lot, just looking at the signature on the posts pre-vanilla.
    I also miss tapatalk : even if vanilla mobile theme isn't bad, it's nothing compared to a native app.

    Plex Media Server 0.9.12.12 running on Gentoo Linux
    Plex Home Theater 1.4.1 running on Gentoo Linux
    Plex Home Theater 1.4.1 running on OS X Yosemite
    Plex for iOS 4.0.2 running on iPhone 6, iPhone 5C, iPad Air 2, iPad 2

    Either Plex needs a native forum app or they need to get vanila to implement tapatalk. I know other vanilla forums that use tapatalk but recently stopped supporting it.

    Gah, I used Tapatalk all the time.

    This is a huge loss and downgrade in the usability and accessibility of the forum. And as someone who has run many forums past and present myself, I can tell you I've never been a fan of Vanilla. So these issues don't surprise me. It's never made it past stage one any time I've re-evaluated it for a forum project.

    I was saddened as well to see the lost of Tapatalk

    Very sad news... IMO, this should have been taken in consideration... Tapatalk is really not comparable to forum mobile version (web)...
    Just like using Plex/Web client on iOS web browser vs the actual iOS Plex client...

    I do not.

    Sorry guys, I used to use it myself, but I am really not a fan of Tapatalk in general. Their apps are crashy, their plugin has had security issues, they do questionable user tracking and monetization, so I'm sort of glad to have them gone. The mobile theme looks great, and we'll be making improvements to our theme as well for smaller screens (and probably end up replacing the default mobile theme at some point).

    I used Tapatalk pretty much only for Plex forums, I would agree their app just got worst and worst, but I do miss notifications. The new mobile theme works well. I miss having 1 click access to threads I am following.

    I miss having 1 click access to threads I am following.

    If you "star" (i.e. favorite) those threads, that's pretty much exactly what you get with a single click, as you can see all those threads and which ones contain new messages.
