    Hi all

    So you all know MASA is TapaTalk enabled, that's old news :p I have also installed a similar piece of software called forumrunner, apparently it has one or two different features to TapaTalk, but I haven't played with it much yet to see what is different.

    Anyway, reason why I installed this is because there doesn't seem to be a free version of TapaTalk anymore, well if there is I certainly can't find it? However forumrunner does have a free version which allows you to browse/read the forum, but not post. Which is cool if you're bored in the middle of a meeting.;)

    ForumRunner is available on both iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and Android (HTC, Motorola, Samsung etc.). Download it and check it out, it seems pretty cool. You will find us under the following category: Home >> Aquarium, we're on page 2 at the moment.

    Let us know your experiences with it and if you're running both TapaTalk and ForumRunner, which one do you think is better? :)

    This forum now supports Android and the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad natively with Forum Runner!

    What is Forum Runner?

    Forum Runner is an Android/iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad App that allows you to browse this forum using a native client. This means faster access for those users since it only downloads the actual forum information rather than all the extraneous images that slow down the mobile connection.

    Forum Runner Feature List



    • Browse your favorite forums in an easy-to-use-interface with multiple notification types (private message, subscription, etc)
    • Fully customizable home screen with your favorite forums
    • PUSH NOTIFICATION SUPPORT : Get private message and subscribed thread updates from your favorite forums in the background!
    • Poll updates (private messages/subscriptions) from favorites on home screen - shows you a summary of which forums you have new messages or subscriptions on!
    • Image attachment thumbnail and full size viewing from threads
    • View a thread's image attachments in one convenient screen (much like the native iPhone "Photo" app)
    • Save thread images to your iPhone/iPod touch library
    • Fully search-able forums!
    • View embedded links without leaving the app, including YouTube videos
    • Supports portrait AND landscape mode
    • Full posting options (quote posts, start new thread, etc)
    • Attach unlimited photos from your library (or take a photo from the camera and attach it)
    • Full support for private messages and private message folders
    • Full support for thread subscriptions - track your favorite threads and be updated via push when they have new posts!


    Some screen shots of Forum Runner running on various devices:

    iPhone: Home Screen with customizable icons and notifications:

    Push notification updates while outside the app:

    How can I get the Forum Runner iPhone Client?

    Either search "Forum Runner" in the App Store on your iPhone, or click one of the links below:

    Get Forum Runner Full Version from App Store

    Get Forum Runner Free Version from App Store

    How can I get the Forum Runner Android Client?

    Either search "Forum Runner" in the Google Market on your Android device, or click one of the links below:

    Get Forum Runner Full Version from Google Market

    Get Forum Runner Free Version from Google Market

    Ouch. I recently got a torch on upgrade to see what the hype is about and i am so disappointd. I should have taken another iphone. The torch's user interface looks like notepad and the touch screen is so slow. The nokia has a nice camera and thats it

    NEMO dont! you will be making a mistake. I have access to torch and have the iphone, and the Iphone really is a lot better.

    The BM is a nice thing to have, but there are other apps like viber and whatsapp that makes up for that.

    just my opinion.

    I like tapatalk and will propably stick with it, since i have purchased the full version just for MASA :p

    Ciao

    I'm using TapaTalk at the moment. Really nice and user-friendly.

    I will give Forum Runner a try and give some feedback.

    Evo - the applications just makes it a lot easier and streamlined. Deepblue, I have the Iphone 4 also, and since the last 2 versions of tapatalk I have the same issue - not huge, but a bit irritating.

    Let me know what you think about forumrunner.

    Ciao

    To show the photo links in TapaTalk app go to the "main menu" and then "settings".
    Under "General", tap on "Open URLs" and select "In App"

    Now the pics should open in the app and not safari.
    Is this the issue you guys have?

    Mine is set up to open in App, but it still opens in safari sometimes, cant figure out why.

    I just noticed there is an update, so will see how it looks after the update.
