Just had an android update. Mentions something about photos.

Still no better as far as I can tell.

cheers, Martin

Might be worth contacting the developers which you can do through the app.

Not sure if it's a problem on my end, but there was an "update" - I use the term lightly - to Tapatalk on iOS last night and now all images are broken in the app. Not having this problem on several other forums I checked, only NSF.

Generally speaking, when Tapatalk updates, the server's Tapatalk plug-in also needs to be updated as well. My guess is the NSF Tapatalk plug-in is out of date...

Does anyone know what's the logic behind Tapatalk keeping on changing the look of the UI?

I'm gonna go with "lack of clear UI design vision" + "lack of confidence in what they're doing" + "borderline incompetence." :p

Same here. Images showing as broken links.

Same here, as it was the case in the past several months. The preview pics in topics list work, though.

Personally I'd say got to "full site" to view images and view the site how it was intended.....

Going to "full site" is the *first thing I do* when my phone "decides" it wants to load up the forum in that horrible tapatalk format (which seems to be some annoying default rather than an option. It really should only be an option).

Concensus of opinion in our local developer community is that web has had its day, and that in the future it will become more and more critical to offer a good user experience via apps (or at minimum an excellent "responsive" version of the website. Otherwise, the pain of viewing the content will outweigh the attraction of the content itself for all but the most committed.

Frankly SMF are falling down on the job here by not offering an app front end.

Personally, if my laptop is on, it's because I'm working on it. It's once I switch it off that I want to do my leisure activities (or snatching a few minutes on the move between client meetings). I've missed a fair bit of content because of Tapatalk issues (mostly images, but text formatting is often mangled, too). Your users are inexorably moving to a world of mobiles and tablets. You can be left behind and lose your user base, or you can embrace it.

Cheers, Martin

Oh, and another reason not to use the web version on my tablet - basically just doesn't work when I try to reply to a thread.

See http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=32918.msg1474123#msg1474123

But these issues at least for me always come through the app version of it.

Offline Herb Schaltegger

Well, all I'm saying is I use Tapatak with at least a dozen forums and they're all pretty much working as normal except NSF, and NSF was working great until the most recent Tapatalk update. Personally I like READING forums (including the pretty pictures) on my phone. When I want to write a post, I prefer my laptop. But I don't have my laptop with me all the time ... So anyway, yeah. Something's broken. :)
