    The Tapatalk app is pretty slick. I'm liking it so far. A definite step up.

    I had the same argument with hulu about being a pay for use site and then have to endue the mountains of ads as I watch programming. Told them it needed fixing and now only have to endue half the ads I use too. LOL, I hate ads! Thanks, sounds like you understand my pain!

    I am having a problem accessing insider forums on the app, but have no problem using the site directly.

    Just got the TapaTalk app. Have been using Forumrunner since the GC app issue arose. Initial impression of TapaTalk is very positive! Thanks Ray!

    Make sure you're logged into Gator Country on the app (GC login, not Tapatalk login which is not needed) when you access those forums.

    Yaaay! Seems most are happy with it. I like how it includes our news and how you can do more with it like "like" posts. So we will go ahead and start the process to have a custom app made using TapaTalk like we did for our custom Forum Runner app. Stay toooooned.

    Oh sweet! I wonder how it works and looks on the iPad version? Is it still pretty usable, @pcolagator ?

    Looks good and works fine so far...still exploring but way, way better than the old app at this point. Like how it provides mobile access to stories and many more features of the site than the old app. One thing I haven't figured out yet is if I can rate posts like the browser version...still exploring the nooks and crannies.

    @pcolagator, you have perfect timing. I just put in the order for our custom app with Tapatalk, so we will be building it now. : )

    The cool thing about tapatalk is you can access other message boards you belong to in the same app. It's almost like another forum in a same app and it is easy to go back and forth.

    Just learned on tapatalk that with a post open just tap on it once & a quote, like, share, & more button pops up.

    Touch & hold on it & a version with larger text comes up. Touch again & it goes back to normal view.

    This is on an iPhone.

    I think so - I just toggled it off, might take awhile to kick in. Enjoy!
