Default TapTalk

Maybe it's just a big rock I live under, but this weekend I downloaded TapTalk on my phone - Oh my! I love it - so easy to stay on top of the forum, browse new layouts in the gallery and read private messages!

Tell me I'm not the last person to know it existed!

I knew it existed, but I struggle to use it or even understand it


I mean I see the site, but it doesn't show me any activity! I'd much rather just go to the browser and use google to get to the site.

Is there a secret to using it? Or is really only useful if you check in one more than one site?

I struggle with it as well..... Basically I use it to stay on top of notifications (for when I get private messages) so I know to hop on my computer to take a look.

I've been using it for a couple of yrs now. When at home I like that it alerts me to new discussions, my phone is on my desk when I'm working so I hear the ding and see the notification come up so I then go to the forum on my computer to read and respond to. When on the road I can quickly check anything new going on from my phone.

It's great for checking the forums from a phone! Web browser works well on my computer, but the formatting is much better with Tapatalk on my phone.

They have updated it since I tried it over a year ago. This seems more user friendly. Like I can actually see posts instead of having the boards laid out like on my computer.

Have it on my phone and love it! It helps me feels a little connected when I can't be at the computer. I love how if I bookmark a thread, a notification will pop up letting me know a new response happened in that thread.

I might need to check it out again, I had it in the past and never really cared for it.

Taptalk is SO much better than trying to read the forum on a browser on my phone! I'm glad you found it and like it, Jill!!

I've tried it in the past for a different forum (not scrap related) and I was constantly running into errors. It drove me nuts, so I stopped using it. It's probably improved since then, maybe I should give it another try!

I had the app on my previous phone, but I didn't like it that much. So I didn't install it on my new phone.

I see the option to download pop up on my phone, but I always was afraid of the learning curve to being able to use it efficiently. I live the minivan chauffeur life right now, so I would love to be able to check in on the forum when I'm out and about.

I just downloaded Tapatalk last night... only got to spend a few minutes on it.

I called it bookmark, but it is to subscribe to a thread. When in the thread you want notifications for, at the top of the screen there is a pennet with a checkmark. Click on that and it will subscribe you to the thread. To unsubscribe, just click on it again.

Here is a pic. I highlighted it in yellow. Hopefully the image is ok to see. I'm doing it from my phone.

You know you can actually get an email notification when you have a PM? just a matter of settings

I did not know that, but I try not to flood my email with too much since it's already pretty crazy, but that is great to know in case I find myself needing to get rid of some apps to make some space that I can set that up. Thanks!

Email notifications are very helpful. I check the forums often, but kind of like FB, those notifications can be helpful!

I like to read to catch up on the forum. I like that if I've read 10 messages in a thread the next time I go to that thread it starts at message 11. It kind of keeps my place. I've responded on it, but don't know how to post images and such, so I just read. If I need to actually post a layout I wait til I can get to my computer!

One thing I DON'T like about tapatalk is that you can't see siggies. I don't always know everyone by their forum name and I hate that the app doesn't show me the siggies. I ask a lot of an app!

Will TapTalk allow me to leave comments in the gallery from my phone?
Or is it just me who can’t do that? I can post comments in the forum from my phone. (iPhone)
