What is Tapatalk?

Tapatalk is a vBulletin mod that allows your users to browse your forum using a native mobile application. Tapatalk supports iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, webOS and Windows Phone 7. It provides super-fast access to your forum and allows your members to participate more in your forum while on the go.

Why Tapatalk?

  • Only one MOD installation to support all mobile devices including iPhone, Android, WebOS, Windows Phone 7 and BlackBerry.
  • Forum API - build your own app or server-side integration with well-documented Tapatalk API, enjoy quality forum app from third-party developers, beyond what Tapatalk internal team can offer.
  • Well-tested. This MOD has been installed in over 23000 forums, including some of the very large forums with 2 million members with over 10,000 online users. This app is designed to scale
  • Tapatalk allows you to put your sponsored banner into the app so you don't lose potential revenue **NEW**
  • Analytics support - you get too see how many users are accessing your forum from the Tapatalk app


Installation Instruction:

Installation is easy. It does not change any of your forum settings or overwrite any
of your existing forum code and configuration. Simply follow the procedure below:

Step 1

Create yourself an account at http://www.tapatalk.com/plugin.php. Once you have logged in
to the website, you can download the largest version. If you are not sure you are
using the latest version. Download a new one from
http://www.tapatalk.com/download.php. You can follow the rest of the instruction
from tapatalk.com onward if you want. Otherwise read on:

Step 2

Upload the zip package at the root of your forum system.
Unzip the package. You should see a directory called "mobiquo" inside your forum
system root directory. For example, if your forum URL is http://www.mysite.com/forum,
it should be placed at http://www.mysite.com/forum/mobiquo/.


Step 3

Login to Administration Control Panel (admincp) in your server.
Choose "Style Manager" under "Styles and Templates".
Choose "Edit Template" in your current template.
Click "Edit" in your current template
Choose "headinclude" in the list, click "Edit"
At the bottom of the editor, insert the following line:
<script type="text/javascript" src="mobiquo/tapatalkdetect.js"></script>
Click "Save".


Step 4

Visit http://www.tapatalk.com/addforum.php to enter your forum URL and upload you forum
logo there. It will allow end-user to find his way to your forum using the Tapatalk
app.

Step 5

Visit http://www.tapatalk.com/manageforum.php to confirm the setup so you can select
whether you want to publish your site to the public listing or you want to set it up
so it is complete private to other end users.

I see our definitions of "informative" are different. It's a single post pointing out all of Tapatalk's shortcomings and praising a product we have yet to see from vBulletin- we don't know it will do anything you bash Tapatalk for not doing and you neglect to mention it will be a very expensive add-on for forum owners whereas tapatalk is free for forum owners and very cheap per user.

I hope the vBulletin app does do more but there is nothing we've seen so far to support that... we know for a fact it doesn't support social groups- we don't know what else it won't support.

I guess I just thought clicking on your link would be informative in some way since that's how you worded it.

Oh and vBulletin hasn't even begun working on a Blackberry app and have no plans to ever do so, let alone WinMo7, Nokia, or WebOS.

Just a head up that the iPhone app is updated again with Facebook integration and host of other new features and bug fixes.

Here is the screenshot of using the app to publish forum topic to the user's Facebook again, with link back to your forum.

It's also a post by a forum that actually uses Tapatalk, or at least used it until many of the shortcomings where found (like spoofing the UA and providing no logging to check for abuse, etc.)

It's also a post from a forum that does not have any financial interest in the outcome; so of course it is informative, unless of course your definition of "informative" is to simply heap praises on Tapatalk.

Then, of course, I imagine you would provide a "thumbs up"

I have no financial interest in Tapatalk... One of my forum members requested it months ago, I researched it and installed it. At the time it was the only option and it remains the best option IMO simply because it supports the most devices.

I'm not saying it doesn't have short comings, but is there anything better out there? You're comparing it to an unreleased product that you assume will overcome these short comings but we have no idea if it actually does or not- unless you are part of the alpha testers group and want to share some first hand info with us?

Just don't make the "good" the enemy of the "perfect."

Two options:
The user can use for free the read Only app or buy the "pro" version for $2.99 (I know this is accurate)

or you can buy a license for the MOD and then either sell or giveaway the pro version for your site only. (http://www.tapatalk.com/rebranding.php). Not sure why you would do this.

really annoying as hell and I want to eliminate it from my users post, I can see a promo on a limited edition but after they pay for it they should not have to advertise what device and browser they are using, I restrict members from seeing each others IPs and user agents, and I don't think it is anyones business what they are using to log on with. at least change it to a discreet graphic .

Hello,

This is the signature user inserted. The default is OFF so the user has explicitly turned it on - Also the signature is customizable so it's really up to the user what they choose...

We can, however, add an extra warning? Or perhaps control it from serverside??

Ahhh OK My bad I don't have access to an I-phone If my member is choosing to promo it thats a whole different thing, she is very happy thus far with it, and was especially pleased today that she could view a video in a post.

I will ask her if she knows it is an Option

Just to make sure every forum Admin is very clear on this, none of your users will be able to make posts unless they buy the full blown version. The free read only version allows them to read only, (fairly obvious). My own forum users absolutely hated the fact that this app advertised itself when they logged in, and that to use it properly would cost them money. Now completley uninstalled.

You could disable the "advertising itself" by not using the javascript code in your footer. As for my users having to pay ~$3 for an app that lets them see thousands of forums I have hard time feeling bad for them after they probably spent $500 on an iPhone or Android + $30+ a month on a data plan and god knows what on actual phone minutes... Someone has to pay for this app after all... If you want you can buy a branded version for your site and give it away free to your users- but it's an expensive investment.

So you can pay for your users or they can pay themselves- no one was going to make an app this big for free- hell it costs hundreds of dollars just to list an app in apple and google's stores to begin with.

Not really excited about promoting a app that leads my members off to "thousands of forums"
