    tis neat, we get a little monthly email statistics thing from tapatalk...apparently more than 700 folks browse the forums using it.

    I honestly didnt think it was that popular. :banana:

    It's a great app! I'm spending more time on multiple forums now than I was previously...so easy to use. I especially like the proactive notifications on threads I participate in, which I prefer vs email notification.

    The iPad version has a nice feature that brings up the notifications on the unlock screen. Slide across the notification and it will take you right to the app and the that specific message!

    I haven't yet bothered to figure out how to get that same functionality on my iPhone...

    The notification process is the same on both devices.

    Oooh, I use Tapatalk to read TUG on my iPad mini before falling asleep (no offense!) but I didn't know about the notification features.

    Might it be worth a sticky on the "About TUG BBS" thread about how to use/set-up Tapatalk to access TUG via tablet and phone?

    For the last couple weeks I keep having to login way more frequently than before. Not every time but quite often. I think a recent tapatalk update might be the culprit. Happens with all the forums I view via tapatalk. Anyone else having this issue?

    I believe the cause was a tapatalk update and not a TUG update.

    Same for me so I switched to the Pro version, it keeps me logged in and remembers my password.

    I don’t like the recent changes either, bring back the view that had threads on the left and message on the right, this new message only view has a lot of wasted gray space on both sides.

    I'm now having to login on a daily basis when I access TUG BBS via tapatalk. Up until this week it was sporadic but this week it has been every day. I did submit a help request directly to tapatalk a couple weeks ago when this started happening but they have opted not to respond.
