    I think I saw something flash by when I checked GA from my phone about an Android App available with the new forum software.

    I've searched but I can't find anything else.

    Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere.

    Tapatalk is installed for the site. The next update to the forum software is supposed to have a built in mobile style that should alleviate the need for Tapatalk.

    I think I will wait then. $2.99 seems high considering some of the reviews/comments I read on the Android Marketplace.

    Can't speak for the Android version, but the iPhone version of Tapatalk is fantastic with GA.

    I haven't checked the site with my Vox since the conversion, but I would imagine that Opera Mini would handle things very well on your droid.

    Tapatalk's sig spam pisses me off. Paid apps should never do something like that.

    Lol came here to test and post from tapatalk and it hit a double with two discussions on the forum... Check out the below auto signature.

    I went on my iPhone 5 about half an hour ago and attempted to go to GA. A message flashed on about Tapatalk, so I guess it isn't a built-in feature of the new forum. No matter, before I spend money to purchase it, can you tell me if Tapatalk needs to be voice activated. I'll only be coming here on my iPhone when I'm away from home without my laptop. Thanks.

    The Tapatalk app is not voice activated. It just reformats the forum in a different format for mobile devices.

    I like Tapatalk, but it's not needed. You can view the forum just fine through safari on the iPhone.

    Downloaded it. It now shows up as an app, so I searched for GA from it and got this message: Cannot connect to forum. This forum is either restricting access from Tapatalk or the installed Tapatalk plugin is not working. Please contact your forum administrator.

    SIGH! What do I do now besides "contacting the forum administrator"? I'm totally brain-dead from two days of learning how to use this phone. Someone said it didn't come with a manual because it was intuitive. Well, maybe for those who were either born with cell phones in their mouths, or started using them from the very beginning. I did find a 156-page iPhone 5 manual at the Apple site. It's quite good, but doesn't cover every single hole some of us manage to fall into. I'd be totally lost without it.

    I'm going off to have a brain transplant now (cup of tea!). Be back later. Thanks for any help you can give me. I used www.globalaffairs.org/forum/ Maybe I should have left off "forum"?

    It's working now, but a new problem has surfaced. The password I was given last April after the crash is about a mile long, and I can't read some of my own handwriting. Could you please send me a new password? I'll change it to something shorter right after that. Thanks.

    Okay, but why didn't it print "Sent from my iPhone with Tapatalk"?
