OK, I think I'm getting the hang of this on android. Still prefer the app behavior on iOS, but not the pitiful battery life of the old phone.

phones

I gave my Galaxy S5 to my daughter I rebooted back to new and it worked Great I bought a apple I-6 phone I'm having a very hard time with this new phone the S-5 was so much better . I've had Android since they came out and I started having small issues with the S-5 and once rebooted it works Great again .

I see I have tapatalk on my apple phone it looks like you read stories that interest you on it ? what else can it do .Also can i-6 phone's contact list put the list into groups like a android phone?

I did a bunch of playing around with both last night, both the Mobile App and Tapatalk.

As far as browsing and reading they are both similar. Locating unread posts in both is just as easy.

The Mobile App is more like the full web site, just a bit more simplified. It is the best looking of the two.

Maybe because I am fairly used Tapatalk I found a few things easier. I like that I get phone notifications (and not email ones, that is shut off), which gives me instant access to the new posts in the thread. Posting and editing wise, I can do multi-quotes easy, and could not figure out how to do that on the Mobile App.

Basically, both work fine for the most part, and keep a fella connected on the go.

Here are screen shots of the same post in the two apps. I prefer the simplicity of Tapatalk for most functions, as it seems more dumbed down, yet functional. I don't seem to be searching around for functions as much on Tapatalk. Again, this may be due to the fact I am more used to it too.

I also like that I can view a bunch of new posts on different forums from Tapatalk as well.

The notifications for every post are what drove me to get rid of the app after about a day.

I set it up for notifications on threads I subscribed too only. You can turn them off if you want. They just show up with the myriad of other notifications I get, and you can just swipe them away if you don't want to go to the thread.

You can see the notification on my screen shots. I don't find it intrusive at all.
