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

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 assume there will eventually be a charge for the "full" version. Any idea what the price is going to be? (even if its ballpark)

I would also like to add a device to the list of ones to support.... and that would be the palm pre.

From what I've read in this thread, the iPhone App will be free for users, but the forum owner will have to pay a fee to become part of the network and get listed in the App as a site to click on.

I do wonder if this will be expensive, and/or if it is a one time charge or subscription based. I'm testing this out on two sites right now, as I am sure others are doing too, so it could become costly pretty quick.

As for the App, I've encountered some bugs, and I've reported them and have been told that they are researching the problems.

For those of you who are already complaining that its not full featured, why don't you wait until this is officially release and not in BETA stage before you start whining, this development team is creating this from scratch, and things don't happen overnight.

I'm anxiously awaiting the release of the version that will allow posts. My users will LOVE this, since I have a fanatical iPhone following.

I thought commercial mod's were not allowed here, sure the app may be free but it's useless without the connection if I'm understanding this, so it's basically a snare trapping people into having to pay a fee for the app to even function, just my view on this but in essence this is a commercial mod masquerading as a free application.

I was curious about this as well.

Hey is just getting the word out, when it comes time to release the full version, it will be a pay thing and you won't see it on here. He is only trying to gather a following of people willing to pay, then once that is done he will release the full version and start charging people, based on the feedback on this thread it will most likely dictate the price he charges as well.

Smart marketing... but still not inline with my morals.

Of course we would all love something for free, but the point is that with this solution becoming commercial, we will receive better support and more frequent updates. Most site administrators that are going to use this are not going to use it on a smaller forum, so the potential for a lot of iPhone users is good, and they'll want support as soon as it is needed.

Not to mention, I'm SURE that there is going to be some major changes needed when vBulletin 4 is released, so administrators that use this will want a timely upgrade option, and you couldn't be sure that a developer do this for free would be able to provide a vB MOD and an iPhone App quickly.

"Ya get what ya pay for"

They are here because this is the place to do something like this, this benefits anyone who immediately buys this solution or buys it in the future, they are getting feedback and bugs reported to the them and are working to resolve as much as possible before the official release.

I've reported a couple of bugs and ensured that they have appropriate abilities to reproduce the issues which helps, so if you are involved in the testing, I would recommend that you talk with Winter and see what you can do to help them help you.

Thanks

The last thing I read says they are "planning" to release vB 4 as a BETA in Q2 of 2009, which would be right around the corner...

BBcodes aren't working, not sure if they're supposed to be. for instance, smilies like :birthday4: don't parse into images.

something else I think would be awesome and a huge step for getting the full version would be some kind of aggregate option. Let's say I'm a member of 4 forums within your network, I still have to check each individually. With an aggregator built in I'd be able to see all new posts across all forums at a glance.
