Ratings and Reviews
Quality app. Could use a few million more users.
This app is very well laid out. It’s simple and easy to navigate for anyone. There’s tons of technical forums that have details on all kinds of d.i.y. Automotive and motorcycle projects. That’s just what I spend most my time browsing. But there is a ton of stuff on almost every topic. It seems like summer 2017 this app was having a real surge in users and traffic. Seems like every forum I look at there’s a ton of activity, posts, chats, etc. from June- August 2017. Thad’s also usually the most recent post in a lot of the forums I’ve found. Maybe it’s just what I’m looking at. But seems like any social app could benefit from some publicity and few million more users. If it weren’t for that 5*. Top notch. New favorite app.
Yet another step backwards
Yet another update that has added nothing of value and retains all of the faults and shortcomings of previous versions:
The "reply" is now the "quote" button. Change for the sake of change.
Thread view is still centered on the iPad. Not only does this waste valuable screen real estate but it makes browsing more difficult by eliminating the split screen of earlier versions. Now you must repeatedly return to the previous screen just to view other topics rather than having them constantly present to the left of the current thread. And this was done without the benefit of a full screen view!
The continuous "page" in thread view introduced a couple updates ago was also a huge step backwards.
Ads continue to get more intrusive (who thought that was even possible?!?)
It repeatedly prompts me to log in to my most viewed forum even though I've never logged out — and then returns an error message when I try.
And this "modern" app still cannot do what could be done in any web browser 20 years ago!
Bottom line is, as easy as it is to browse forums in the app, it is still no match for a web browser. Inexcusably, even such a basic feature as text formatting (bold, italic, etc.) is not included so it's back to Safari for all but the simplest replies.
I'm seeing less and less reason to use Tapatalk. I will certainly NEVER pay for it!
Developer Response ,
Please write to us to email@example.com with more detail and we’ll look into it.Thank you.
Usable but needs some improvement
I access several forums with this app and it does alright. It could use a little more powerful user interface.
I'd like to see the ability to start a new thread rather than being limited to only posting responses in existing threads. I'd like to see a Feedback button in the Settings of the app so that we can offer suggestions or requests from the app rather than hoping Tapatalk reads through hundreds of reviews here to find our lone review with suggestions. I'd like to see a more intuitive interface for posting photos to threads.
Overall, it's decent but it seems like a work in progress. I hope they update it again soon.
UPDATE: 2017 - Still plenty of bugs! If you make a custom Signature for a forum, it won't Save it. It reverts back to a generic "Sent my my iPhone using Tapatalk". It's pretty annoying.
