    App has stopped working on my iPhone. When it stopped loading, I logged out. I've tried logging back in on the app, but I get a tap-a-talk error. If there is information on a fix, could someone please email me? Thanks.

    @Cowboy_Ken still working on the app update! The new version of the site is mobile-ready though! Tapatalk is going to issue us an update that will get the app back online. We're at their mercy. This is one of the reasons I eventually want to move away from them :-/

    Yes, and it will also alert them if they have that preference enabled.

    speed seems fine to me.
    It's the navigating that is slowing me down..:rolleyes: that's to be expected though. It's all new and will take some time to learn what does what..etc.

    I think I like the mobile ready TFO version. App obviously is offline (just read the above info about the app).
    I LOVE that we can "like" comments. That feature is perfect! I also like that we can tag people with the @ symbol.
    And it just notified me that someone messaged me, with a little pop up bubble. Most excellent. They app was very inconsistent about message notifications.

    Page transition appears to be very fast but navigating is still slow because I have no idea where I am from one moment to the next lol. But I'll figure it out in a day or so and it'll be smooth sailing.
