Tapatalk or Forum Runner?

Recommended Posts

I currently use Forum Runner but I am wondering if Tapatalk gives a better experience. The main thing I dislike about Forum Runner is that it doesn't seem to allow zoom when viewing attached images. The navigation also seems a little clunky to me.

 

Has anyone tried both, and if so, which would you recommend?

I have only used Tapatalk 2. It does let you zoom images though. Touch image and it "hovers" above post and you can zoom in. Tapatalk back on my EVO 4G LTE and it closes.

I like Forum Runner better. Tapatalk has a bug that makes it difficult to access Sponsor forums. It prompts you for a password. The ability to zoom images is an advantage I was not aware of.

 

I like your new auto signature. Awesome!!!

Thanks guys. I guess I will stay with Forum Runner since I do access Sponsor forums on the go and I have random passwords so I don't want to have to open LastPass everytime I try to go into a Sponsor area.

Thanks! I saw twospirits sig and it reminded me of how I and a lot of other guys used to do it over at Android Forums. It can help answer many questions before they're even asked.

The worst part of the bug, is it doesn't matter what password you enter, it won't let you in! :scratch:

Tapatalk person here. I just couldn't get over that white background they forced on you forever. I hate white background apps. It makes it so hard to read in the dark. I know forum runner has a dark profile now but I have everything I need in tapatalk.

 

Also speaking of the sponsor area issue, you can still access the area when you hit new threads, participated, etc. All I ever use is the new threads button anyways here so I never noticed it.

 

Is getjar still giving tapatalk away for free?

Twospirits posted a while back that if you add "the S4GRU club" to your favorites, you can access them without that pesky password prompt.

 

As far as which one I prefer, I am starting to come around and warm up to forum runner. I was almost 100% Tapatalk, but forum runner feels like a better program. Tapatalk is wonky at times and Robert has told me that they are not very supportive because the site supports both programs. I do like the way Tapatalk has a widget, and I like how it will show all the threads with new posts.

 

I'm on the fence right now, but due to Tapatalk trying to force the site to drop forum runner support, I am giving forum runner a long look...

I see you're using forum runner on CM9. Do you get the option to upload pictures to your posts? I don't on either my Epic with CM9 or my acer tablet which is running ICS 4.0.3. Wasn't sure if it was just my phone or a problem with forum runner on ICS.

Try it again. I changed the settings the other day in IP Board that was accidentally blocking members from uploading anything to most forums. It wasn't a Forum Runner issue, it was a Robert issue. :)

Well look at that. There's now an "attachments" button. Thanks.

OK, so I have been using forum runner for a while to try to get used to forum runner instead of tapatalk. Today, I tried uploading a photo with forum runner and got the error "error attaching file: upload_too_big"

 

What is the deal? Is it something in the settings? Am I dumb?

 

Edit: apparently it had to be set on the lowest size...

Hmmm. I've never had that issue before.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
