All;

After reviewing the metrics and looking once again at how I can ensure that I am able to provide the most stable and consistent experience to our members regardless of what platform they are using to visit the site, I am making the decision to no longer participate in the Tapatalk network.

The recent software upgrade from IPBoard once again broke Tapatalk and the Tapatalk developers were once again incredibly slow to keep up with the IPBoard development cycle.  I've never allowed Tapatalk to delay the installation of critical security fixes on TGO's software, and have rarely allowed it to delay us from using newer and more improved versions of our software.

It is perhaps helpful to put this into perspective:  TGO does not run on Tapatalk.  TGO runs on IPBoard.  Tapatalk wasn't our platform, it was a convenience and for a few years a bit of a necessity until IPBoard caught up with mobile technology.

The developers of IPBoard have made tremendous headway in providing a feature-rich and easy to use mobile version of the software, which functions great inside of your phone's mobile browser whether you are using an Apple iOS device or an Android device.  Foregoing that in favor of third party software which isn't kept up to date and which doesn't bring to you all of the features of the native IPBoard software is allowing the tail to wag the dog, and just doesn't make any sense to me.

I am seeing quite a few other large forums making the same decision to abandon Tapatalk.  Third Party software, such as Tapatalk, are losing market share as forum software authors are getting better at making their software better on mobile devices.

 

My apologies to those who prefer Tapatalk.  I hope that you will give TGO a shot using your phone's browser instead.  If you don't, we will miss you but TGO will still go on.

I too fear Tapatalk (and similar software) is on its way out and fast. At this point, TGO is the second forum that I use in the last month or two to abandon it. Shame really, because it did have a lot to offer.

Oh well, the decision will make your life easier. Removing it (Tapatalk) from my iPhone right now, it's useless to me at this point. It was sweet when it lasted...
