Default Tapatalk for mobile access to forum?

I just installed Tapatalk on my phone to try out the new plugin that they installed over at another forum and it makes viewing the forum and responding very practical from your phone.

It's easy to set up and free for Forum admins and works with vBulletin ^^

The way it works is that the phone owners pay for the app for their phone if they want full features from the app (posting as well as reading) or there is a free version that is read only.

Most forum features are available through the app including personal messages etc. Looks like a sweet addition to interact with the forums.

Fancy taking a look Max?

They support iPhone, Android, some Nokia and Blackberry

I don't use mobile phones to access the net so, I just don't get it

We have a "mobile skin" which is supposed to make it easier for those of you who do use mobiles. Now we have this.

What's the difference between the mobile skin and Tapatalk? I thought you could read and post with the skin

I think the mobile skin just compacts everything and makes it so that so some features can be seen and used in a mobile format.

This tapatalk changes the whole thing entirely to a mobile friendly format, and makes it easier to post from a mobile phone.

I Mainly use my mobile to read. Posting from a mobile can be quite tedious. That might change now.
