    Heya folks,

    Sorry if this has been asked, i did use the search but didn't see anything relevent to my question.

    Moderaters - Is there any plan to support tapatalk? I almost exclusively use that for my forum browsing :)

    Thanks

  2. There's a special app called Phandroid in Market that replaces Tapatalk here.

    I'm not sure if they plan on re-instating Tapatalk itself. Rather doubt it. ;)
     
  3. We had it implemented before but decided other alternatives were the route to go, so my guess for the foreseeing future is no, Tapatalk will not be supported.

    so I need the xda app for xda, phandroid for android forums and tapatalk for the other forum I participate in. wow, thats pretty lame.

    can you please link me to info on this security risk? I just had my forum admin install tapatalk and would like to know what security risks are involved?

    could we not have worked with tapatalk to resolve the risks?

    Is it possible on the Phandroid app to make a whole forum into a default tab or as a Favorite Forum? For the time being, I'm mostly only interested in learning how to use my Thunderbolt so I'm looking for a way to automatically go to that forum.

    Right now it looks like I have to:
    1. Open Phandroid
    2. Select Forum (Browse is set as preferred tab)
    3. Select Android Phones
    4. Scroll down and select HTC Thunderbolt

    It is possible to do this on Tapatalk so I'm hoping there is also a way to do this on the Phandroid app. Anyone?

    Thanks in advance! Robrecht

    It's not possible to open it straight to the thunderbolt section no, as far as I know, but you can definitely add the thunderbolt section (and any other section you frequent) to the Browse >> Favourites tab.

    Just tick all of the sections/subsections you want to be accessible in favourites out this list and hit save at the bottom.

    Also, going to the Recent >> Favorites tab will show you all the new unread posts in your favorite forms. Just like the favorite forums box on the main page of the forum website does.

    I find using that more useful than going in through the browse tab, because I have about 10 favorites and I like to be sure I've read everything :)
