Any chance of adding Tapatalk support for this forum for reading on the go?

Maybe I'm suffering male blindness or something, but where on that website is the bit that tells us what Tapatalk actually does?

It makes forums look nice and have a consistent interface on mobile devices.

They need an 'About' page.
I don't have a 'smart' phone... how is that better than using an RSS reader app?

Good question. For reading, not much. But Tapatalk allows posting as well.

OK. Hopefully we won't see what we see on emails all the time now. "Sent from my iphone/blackberry/HTC/TLA" etc That's bloody annoying.

I knew about Tapatalk, but had never really bothered with it. On the odd occasions that I needed to check something on the forum, I just used my phone's browser.

It was a bit clunky but not too bad.

Thought I'd give Tapatalk a go to see what all the fuss is about and from a quick five minute play, is much easier to navigate the site via their interface.

Although it's still taken me a while to type this message out on the phone :)

Unfortunately I believe by default Tapatalk uses "Sent from my X using Tapatalk", however there is an option to turn this off.

Found a free app called convo, could not find the free tapatalk app in the market. Does it come as a free app as well as paid?
