Tapatalk on newer Android phones

So I finally got my company to agree to upgrade my phone from an iPhone 5 to a Samsung Galaxy S7. Love the phone and now get more than a day of battery life instead of 4 or 5 hours.

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.

Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

I find Tapatalk to be entirely free of value. Not cost... value. I installed it, but don't bother using it. If I must use my phone for the forum, I just use the browser; that might be a viable option for those unimpressed by Tapatalk.

On the bright side, it's good to hear that there's something good about the Tapatalk app on iOS. Given that it is incapable of posting more than one photo in a post, and doesn't handle the iOS image rotation tag...

Never tried it before but I got a new Galaxy a couple weeks ago so I gave it a shot. Didn't care for it at all, I'll just keep using the browser (Firefox).

Actually I did try it before, back when it was first introduced here. Didn't like it then but blamed it on having an old out of spec phone.

I find Tapatalk very useful on my phone. In fact, I am using it right now on my Galaxy S6.

I would just say to keep at it. Practice makes perfect.

I find Tapatalk WAY easier to use when viewing of the Forum on my phone, then using a browser

Hmmm.... Seems to work fine for me. Love it!

Oh, and you can get rid of that signature line too.

And editing your post to get rid of the stupid way that speech to text translates is easy as well.

I installed Tapatalk about 2yrs ago. I used it a few times that first week but never since. I guess that is an indication of what I thought of it. LOL.

I have it, don't use it. Perhaps because I haven't used it.
Not sure how you have it display only unread posts. Don't have enough interest to find out.

Easy peasy. Just click on the UNREAD tab, and the list is the same as hear.

I I am at home, I will usually default to using my PC, as I can type faster and more legibly than I can talk to my phone, and edit.

But, if away from my computer, often even at home, I just use Tapatalk. The learning curve is not very big, and it really does beat the browser view IMHO.

I don't even have any interest to have a smart phone.

I gave up needless complication when I retired.
