    tis neat, we get a little monthly email statistics thing from tapatalk...apparently more than 700 folks browse the forums using it.

    I honestly didnt think it was that popular. :banana:

    It's a great app! I'm spending more time on multiple forums now than I was previously...so easy to use. I especially like the proactive notifications on threads I participate in, which I prefer vs email notification.

    The iPad version has a nice feature that brings up the notifications on the unlock screen. Slide across the notification and it will take you right to the app and the that specific message!

    I haven't yet bothered to figure out how to get that same functionality on my iPhone...

    The notification process is the same on both devices.

    Oooh, I use Tapatalk to read TUG on my iPad mini before falling asleep (no offense!) but I didn't know about the notification features.

    Might it be worth a sticky on the "About TUG BBS" thread about how to use/set-up Tapatalk to access TUG via tablet and phone?

    For the last couple weeks I keep having to login way more frequently than before. Not every time but quite often. I think a recent tapatalk update might be the culprit. Happens with all the forums I view via tapatalk. Anyone else having this issue?

    I believe the cause was a tapatalk update and not a TUG update.

    Same for me so I switched to the Pro version, it keeps me logged in and remembers my password.

    I don’t like the recent changes either, bring back the view that had threads on the left and message on the right, this new message only view has a lot of wasted gray space on both sides.

    I'm now having to login on a daily basis when I access TUG BBS via tapatalk. Up until this week it was sporadic but this week it has been every day. I did submit a help request directly to tapatalk a couple weeks ago when this started happening but they have opted not to respond.

    that screams to me some sort of cookie problem on your phone. (having to log in each time you visit)

    im not sure what phone or browser you have, but id try to completely delete the cookie used for tugbbs.com and then "relog in" using tapatalk...doing so should recreate the cookie and allow you to remain logged in.

    I read reviews after I installed the app and promptly deleted it. I don't need the hassle.
