Tapatalk on JCF?

As you may or may not know, Tapatalk is a 'forum reader' app for mobile systems, aiming to centralize and integrate forum conversations from multiple web forums into your device.

I use and like this app especially for the ability to check followed threads across multiple forums all from one screen in my pocket. And I believe it would be great to add the JCF to the list as well!

The only requirement is the installation of their API through a vBulletin plugin, one which they say is pretty lightweight. Another plus is that it enables JCF in their forum directory, which is basically free publicity in some way.

Well, maybe I'm the only member here using Tapatalk, but it's just something to consider, so might as well suggest it right.

I'll second that request. Tapatalk comes in really handy on mobile devices as a quick way to catch up on forums... I will say I don't care for how they try to push you to sign up for a tapatalk profile or to log in with facebook or Google+, though. Completely uneccessary.

Tapatalk works fine with just your normal forum credentials, but you have wrestle with it a little bit to do so. More so with their latest update, that is.

Hmm, it seems to work but it's somehow using my Tapatalk ID as a new standard user account, while it should ask for my JCF credentials instead?

In other words, I think it's a good practice to look at this: https://blog.tapatalk.com/knowledgeb...-for-my-forum/

As I don't think such automatic registrations are generally a good idea. Other than that, browsing the forums and subscribing to threads works fine!
