Taptalk use?

« posted: 2 years ago »
Is there anyone here uses taptalk for forums on their phones? I've avoided putting it here because *I* don't like it. But that is a silly reason. So does anyone else use it? I was wondering how people feel about taptalk themselves?

I just figured how to read emails on my phone.
Still can't answer an incoming call without disconnecting the person I'm already talking to.

LOL. Just today I spent 4 minutes looking for my phone, to check an email for someone I was on the phone with...when I realized I was on the phone that I spent 4 minutes looking for.

Please don't ask me to try to figure other new stuff out.
Please...please.   :'(

Hahahaha Chuck! I won't make you figure anything new out. It looks like TapTalk can be installed without the annoying popup everyone complains about. However; most of the people polled thus far (on facebook too) have said the same thing- nononono!! I'm glad I'm not the only one. I just found out that it also tracks user data. Not cool. So I'm leaning strongly against it, unless I hear a number of people want it. And then, only without the popup.

LOL.
While all the stuff I posted is true, I don't relish something that would track our data.
I have a hard time keeping stuff like that off my computers.
That alone would keep me from using it.

Of course if someone was interested in using this app on their phone, then it needs to be talked about.
And if it won't cause any direct issues to the site itself...

It won't affect me one way or the other.
Being pretty much home-bound I do all my forum stuff from a computer.

I am not a fan of taptalk.  A geek squad tech installed it on my tablet and I couldn't get use to it so I uninstalled it.

I haven't used it.  I was considering it but must of the forums I visit aren't setup for it.  I prefer using my laptop or desktop when posting.  Occasionally if something of interest or a pressing matter arises, I will use my iphone.  Mostly to view and then post later on a full keyboard. 

Both of my daughter use their iphones for all their web browsing.  There are lots of folks who do this!  I was surprised by how many orders came in via smartphone on our website.  One of the reasons why we changed to a format that was more friendly to mobile devices.
