Mobile App Change Coming Soon-ish

Some of you may be seeing a slidedown notice for tapatalk (a mobile app). In the next week or so we are going to be changing our app. Please ignore the tapatalk notice for now but in a few days you should see a prompt to install our new app which is based on the tapatalk platform.

We're making this change because we're just not satisfied with the current app; lots of folks have had trouble and we believe this will be an improvement.

Is this going to be only accessible through Tapatalk, or just formatted like it?

I guess that I've been lucky, I've had the current app on multiple android devices without a hitch.

Rocket J Dawg, Tapatalk is an app that serves as a portal to many forums, one app can give you access to multiple forums, you just pick from a list. It's a paid app.

For those concerned about having to download and learn a new app, DC also seems to work fine in any smartphone browser.

Uck! My parents bought me a brand new IPhone5 for Christmas and the old app was working. Tapatalk is a pain but once the bugs are out, it works well enough.

With love,
~Cat

I know what you mean Cat. Everything looks different and it's hard to find the current stuff. :(. It seems if you use the "timeline" function you get what we were used to seeing in the old ap when we opened it. Good luck! I suppose we will get used to It in time =\

Is the compatibily issue with IE ever going to get fixed? That would be nice, too.
It's a real pain in the butt having the page refresh itself all the time.
This problem is only experienced here, not on other vB sites.

I haven't experienced any problems with the current DC app, save for a couple times online while at our daughter's. I thread or two didn't recognize I still had a page of posts to read. Problem resolved itself on my phone when we returned home.

From what I've seen online re: Tapatalk, it seems to have plenty of its own issues. I don't like problems to begin with, and if I've paid to get those problems.... I'll have to limit my DC time to my laptop if Tapatalk goes live, or try to use Steve's method of a regular browser window.
