    I use TT on my personal mobile, work mobile and tablet. They updated it recently and IMO made it worse to use. Once I'd figured out how to force it to go directly to a list of my forums on opening it instead of to some silly new TT landing page (can't remember how, but it is possible) it is back to being nearly as good as it was. It's quite functional and makes browsing the forum easier than going via t'interwebz on a small phone screen. However you can only like posts (thumbs up) and not rate them as friendly, funny etc. Small gripe though overall :)

        Thanks for the comments.... I had heard that it had been updated and wasn't as good and I've read a few of the reviews some good and more bad!

            That's interesting.... I have a IPhone 6 so to be honest its like having a laptop in your hand, slow putting pictures on I agree, based on what's been said I will probably stick to what I'm using... the only reason I raised the question is that it keeps flashing at me and a few times I've clicked on it by accident, thanks for the info its just confirmed my feelings :ccheers:

                I quite like it. I get annoyed by forums because they are subtly different. Some make it hard skipping posts you have already read.

                Also are often loads of sub forums and I end up missing stuff.

                  I think it's brilliant, easy yo use and cuts down on my time as I'm a member of so many forums. I just go on the unread tab and read away

                    Gods honest truth? Get a life! Nothing is so important that we need to be in touch 24/7 except for family illness.
                    I get bumped into at least once a day by people engrossed in their phones as they use the pavement. I really do not hog the pavement so rather than avoid these people now I just brace myself. I am pleased to report that I appear to have broken two phones this way so far in 2015 :yes:
                    I've just installed one of these at work and it seems to work well.
                    And this irritates the hell out of me (and a few others too)................

                    I've even had customers messing with their mobiles whilst talking to me - I just walk off now.

                    Rant over - sorry!

                        I tried Tapatalk for about 4 days before uninstalling the app. I get on with most new tech stuff, but I found it really irritating to use and offered me no advantages over using Chrome, even thought it was probably a dumbed down way viewing forums, but didn't want to waste any more time on it as I can manage fine without it.

                        And that's from somebody who thinks facebook is also a rubbishy, unwieldy site to use.
