This is why I like using my phone. Much simpler than lugging a laptop and finding WiFi to stay connected.

It kinda looks like I am a lone duck here, as one who likes and uses Tapatalk. Just like so many other things new to us, once we give them a good go, they often turn out to be quite a good thing.

No skin off my butt though whether others care to use it or not. I am very thankful for it myself.

I too use Tapatalk, it's handy to keep up with the forum when camping or travelling. To me it seems easy to use on my iPhone 6.
Cheers
Doug

I recently switched from a iPhone to a S7 Edge. I only use tapatalk to read and usually never post with it.

Maybe it's a sign

Anyway I love my new phone

BUT, Tapatalk doesn't work the same on Android as it does on the iPhone. Hate it. Can't quote or multi quote and then edit the quoted portion. At least I haven't seen how to yet. Terrible app on Android, or at least, much more complicated.

Seems you just hit the arrow at the bottom of someone's post.

Maybe it's because you can't see the tags for what you're quoting

It's simpler but with less control. And, the app doesn't show you the number of unread posts. Once you read them, they still show up as unread. Or, it shows no unread posts when there are a bunch of them.

Oh well, a browser works.

Aha. More steps. I can live with that. My life is already complicated to the point where I won't notice.

Thanks.

To multi-quote, just tap on all the posts you want in your quote. If they are blue, they are in.

They you can edit the individual quotes just like Tom said.

Anyhow, I am out of here for a while, but I can lend help where I can later, with what little I actually know.
