    he he- N8 on its way- how will this benefit me if I install it????

    Reason I asked- I've always browsed Masa from my phone when I am on site(Via Opera Mini) and never had any problems (well almost never) and it is still fast.

    So if I download the paid version- do I have to learn a complete different "forum style" ??

    Ok, I'll still read the link ;)

    Bud, I have no idea how it works, never seen it in action but a few people have asked for it so I installed it. It sounds like it can read threads from a few different forums you subscribe to, not sure really, download the free version and see what it does.

    p.s. TASA also has it so you can browse our sister site as well. :D Rory uses it so maybe he will tell us what it does. ;)

    Since the livefeed disappeared, I was in need for good solution to check Masa via my iphone. I installed the free version of tapatalk and must say, it is really impressive and easy to use. Will get the full version.

    I would say it works much better, easier, with more informations on one view. Also to view statistics and who is online, etc.

    Here are a few screenshots from my iphone.

    Dean, why is the livefeed gone? I actually don´t like using Masa via my computer anymore. To much hassle to follow the threads.

    Thanks for the pics, it looks like a pretty cool app.

    We were getting database memory errors from the live feed, it has been disabled until I can find a fix for it.

    You have to download an application for it to work, then you open masa with that application, works well on my iphone, except I cant see the auction

    Tremayn I have an HTC desire with android 2.2.
    I use both the browser and tapatalk. Tapatalk is just easier because the interface is designed for a phone whereas with the browser you have to do some moving/zooming etc. It also makes private messages a bit easier as it has notifactions built in and you can obviously reply right there.

    Tapatalk has it's own interface with the forum so it means you don't waste any bandwidth on the code needed for the buttons, reply box, menus etc so you'd be using less bandwidth as it only downloads the text and the pics as needed. Unfortunately because of this it doesn't support stuff that isn't part of plain old vbulletin so addons like the auction won't show up. To get to that you'll need to use a browser.
