Tap A Talk

I have noticed for sometime some members are posting from their smart phones using a app called Tapatalk.

Being an old geezer I would appreciate any PMs explaining the app to me because even social media savvy Mark, Jr., is not familiar with it.

Thanks,

MTD, Sr.

I Love My Flip Phone ...

What's a smart phone? What's an app?

If he can submit a post, can't he just punch it into any online search engine to get the details? Or is an explanation of the internet forthcoming

Download the Tapatalk app.

I probably do 90% of my reading and posting through the app now.

I feel bad for Jr. who has to print off all the posts so Sr. can read them by the fire in his smoking jacket and then transcribe Sr.'s handwritten response. Not to mention slaving away in the attic looking up ancient NCAA-W rules.

Older than MTD, I have no idea what all this means: http://www.techrepublic.com/article/...-with-tapatalk

It must be true--it's on the internet.

I've installed the app and am now moving through the sign in phase. Will signing in with Facebook or Google compromise my identity to other users or forum admins?

Yes. In order to stick with your current name and such you must use the same credentials.

I've tried tapatalk...not very impressed. It is a great idea but a weak implementation.

I used to like it more. The changes they made and making my paid version obsolete soured me on it. Now that I have a larger phone, I just use a browser.
