Any news yet?
The latest from those developing the app (posted this weekend):
Ok, just heard the mobile app service is rolling out April 4th. Initially for testers and a then full release shortly after that. In the mean time I have some code updates on our current style that will fix many iOS bugs. That is scheduled for this weekend.
Thanks Sean. Can any person interested be a tester? Do you have a person to contact if we want to test?
We'll probably start testing end of next week.. will keep you all posted
Any update or ETA? I would be happy to help test the iOS version.
They are currently working with several large forums now testing the app in the wild. It shouldn't be much longer now as they are reportedly squashing bugs and nearing a first release.
Any updates from them?
This was posted by them yesterday:
They have several big boards running the beta and it sounds like they are doing some bug fixes. I think it's close.
A very frustrated tapatalk user: Any idea when? I would rather not bitch with a buggy app than have no app at all.
The last update was on the 21st, they posted some screenshots of their ordering system for the app stating they are nearly ready to take orders now. It's frustrating they have had delays but from what I've seen it will be well worth the wait. My best guess is next week. Also, could you let me know the most 'out of whack, frustrating' components of the current skin on mobile screens. If we can identify those issues I might be able to improve on that. It might only be a couple pieces of code throwing things off (and let me know your device/OS). Thanks!
I program both platforms, so that should be easy.
still no release candidate?
this is starting to seem more and more like vapourware ...
Soon! He said soon!
Any updates here? Frustrating to use the browser
They claim a July release, that testing is going good and they want to release the best product possible. As for issues you have, it's hard for me to test as I have no tablets. On my iphone 5s it functions quite well in google's chrome browser. What is broken or difficult for you, I might be able to tweak a few things while we wait for the proper app.
Browser works, just cumbersome and not a clean and neat experience.
cumbersome is one word
the search option doesn'tappear at all in my android browser when I am on apug. I use opera.
there are sites that developed their own Xen app already at least a year ago.and I'd be surprised if they wouldn't do a deal for apug.
I mentioned this to sean by pm months ago but he didn't seem interested
I search their resources almost daily and have not seen any mobile apps that don't come with countless issues. The only thing I've seen are a few skins that are more mobile friendly but discussions contain pages of problems people have with them. Feel free to point me to something here if I've missed it. Thanks
I've tested a few browsers and in the header is an image of a magnifying glass, that should open a search box. Image attached:
At this point I don't think Tap-a-talk could have been that bad. It wasn't for me. It is a big deal to use a browser on a device. I can't sit on my PC most of the day.....nor want to.
Perhaps something broken is much better than nothing at all.......
Problem with tapatalk is they are gaining access to forum databases and harvesting data, among other sketchy activities. That's why I've been holding out for a native app for xenforo. I might see if they'll let me be a tester.
Don't worry. 10 mins after I get something to use, I'l be over it......
No magnifying glass here ...
(otherwise I'd have noticed it)
Nothing under the overflow menus, nothing in those curious crossed boxes either.
