Is Tapatalk the thing that spams my mobile browser each time I visit a forum using it? Not going to happen. I'm principally against this kind of thing anyway. Let the mobile device vendors fix their browsers so the site is usable.
if I sound rude, sorry. Just annoyed that you seem to be dismissing something incredibly useful because of a misconception and couldn't-care-less-because-i-dont-use-it attitude. I'm not asking you to overhaul your entire forum- just at least check if your forum supports the plugin. If it does, it's a simple matter of installing the plugin. If not, well thanks for checking.
Why use some shitty bloatware instead?
...not that it even reflows so bad! I posted this whole damn thing from my phone.
Upon what is exactly based this very precise examination of yours?
Just for the record: as an exercise, I'm posting those very words from my phone too, using Atomic Browser which does a decent reflow and font zooming, but why use something "not so bad" (to be polite) when it's possible to have a better UI? I mean better in a functional way, not just eye candy.
I still don't see any solid reason beyond your personal opinions not to enable it. Neither I see how helping other people feel more comfortable could possibly prevent you from enjoying HA any other way you like!

Neither I see how helping other people feel more comfortable could possibly prevent you from enjoying HA any other way you like!The cost is the labour time of the few individuals both trustworthy enough and technically-skilled enough to do so. And what's the benefit? I see no solid reason beyond your personal opinions to enable it. From that cost-benefit analysis, it's quite clear that of the two categories, the cost is the more heavily weighted, at least in any objective sense. I welcome rational rebuttals (certainly you've proven yourself here), but I honestly have no idea how else the cost-benefit analysis can turn out, especially in any objective sense. Care to set me straight?
I thought the standard for accessing websites are browsers.But alas, thanks to the mobile-app-age, we're back to buying programs to access websites. Ka ching!
The "cost" is at most an hour to install and do the bare minimum of configuration, or even 5 minutes if you confirm that the board does not support tapatalk. Also, you have *no* idea how it works or what it does- centralized tracking of users? Wasting bandwidth / might as well go to lynx? Furthermore you're very flippant and almost rudely up in arms about this incredibly trivial and simple procedure, and based off (I reiterate) your odd misconceptions over it, and also you continue to force your opinions and way of doing things on others. I suggest you do the bare minimum of research before posting again if you're so worried about wasting time- if you're not careful, the effort you put into rebutting this request will exceed the work it takes to install!
The app is free, by the way, so there's nothing to buy.
This is the public beta release of Tapatalk 4. Final release of this app will be merged with Tapatalk HD and will be renamed to Tapatalk 4

The official client is paid. There are 3rd party tapatalk clients which are free. Paying is a choice.

on the Tapatalk site they speak about a 15 mins procedure (yes, maybe they are overly optimistic and it could as well take twice or three times so).
Tapatalk can be installed in 3 minutes It is possible to choose just to add the file "Mobiquo" and to upload it to the server.
Even if any of the admins cared, the old IPB 2.x.x branch is apparently not supported by that thing.
