    What are your experiences with Tapatalk?

    Mine? It fails to update the number of contributors to topics in feeds. It also indicates that I'm not allowed to access certain forums or that I'm not signed in. All completely frustrating nonsense.

    On the upside, it's picture-posting heaven. It's also a nice way to manage several forums at once.

    What are your thoughts?

    Right now its most annoying problem is it shows threads last updated several hours ago as "now". But it's still much better than trying to browse with a browser.

    I can't view the BST forum through it. Noticed it last night. Other than that, works good.

    So glad I have the discontinued pro version for iOS; no ads and rarely any issues.

    I concur. It sucks, but doesn't suck at the same time.

    Huh it's discontinued? First it was 2, then Pro, now gone. I don't get their market strategy.

    Ads make more than the pro revenue did most likely. The license was supposed to transfer but idk.

    Problem is i bought the pro version in early 2011. But since it is discontinued and i have a new ipad and a new iphone i had to dl the current version which has ads... i found out that you have to go to the tapatalk support forum and provide your purchase ID to one of the mods by PM. Then if you are lucky and that guy reads your PM and feels like doing something about it he will grant VIP status to your account and the ads schould be gone.. Great service and workflows...:rolleyes:

    You should still be able to find it in the purchased section under updates. This is a new iPhone and I still have it on here. Along with something else that was discontinued, although I don't remember what the other one was.

    The old purchase now links to the new version in the purchased section. At least on my iphone it does... well we will have to see if the PM some guy on the tapatalk forums way works i am afraid. :nah_disagree:

    Interesting; you can't just tap on the cloud next to the app without going into the info to redownload?

    Example:

    That is what has worked for me. Never went back into the description again since I'm usually restoring all my apps in bulk.

    I did get the cloud and dl'ed it from there. I event just deleted the app and repeated these steps but i just keep getting the latest version then which has ads and doesn't know my pro status. I am just trying to remember how i purchased the pro version. is it possible that there have been two ways to get the pro version?
    1. direct download/purchase
    2. upgrade of the standard version via in-app purchase

    ???

    Maybe if version 2 was possible that might explain why i keep getting the normal version and you get the pro version because you did it via version 1??!

    Confusion!!! :frantic::bounce::spin:

    That very well could be; I had the separate pro version which appears like this:
