    Is anybody else getting the "this forum appears to have deactivated tapatalk" error when connecting to android forums? Just started for me about 20 minutes ago. I just did a bunch of updates but I don't remember if tapatalk was one of them.

    its because of a security issue. a few people have been working on a malicious application that sends them your tapatalk login creds

    i think they are working on it and thats why its down.

    IMO its not worth it, for our phones atleast. I like looking at real web pages.

    It is quicker and nice having the black background option, since a lot of forums do not offer background changes.

    I've been enjoying it greatly until it stopped working today.

    I love taptalk. Faster, less garbage, and easier to navigate around for me.

    tapatalk stopped working for me after update as well. also, some forums went from black to white backgrounds, which sucks.

    the big draw to tapatalk to me was the battery savings. web browsing eats alot of battery especially the bright white screens on most web pages. tapatalk saved me hours of battery with dark screens.

    You can get black backgrounds back via an option in the settings.

    I'm missing taptalk already. I'll use Opera Mini for now, but it's just not the same.

    +1, what's the deal? :( It was working fine after I updated, then this morning I tried and it said this forum is deactivated. Other forums still work though.

    anon says he thinks it's related to security issues that AF is working out. apparently when tapatalk says the forum has deactivated it, it's right.
