I can't post with mine.  Does this mean I have to purchase the app now?  It's not free?

There's 2 versions of the app, the free one only lets you read a forum but not post.  The paid one lets you post, it's always been like that.

Strange, they used to have 2 versions the "read only" version that was free and the $2.99 version where you could post.  I don't ever remember being able to post with the free version, also it looks like they've pulled the free version.

Here's an old link that shows the differences between read-only (RO) version and the full verison:

Mine says "Tapatalk for Blackberry (Beta 10)", so maybe it was some sort of free trial or something.

I just got an iPhone last month and it's pretty hard to navigate the regular site on it, let alone post.  Is Tapatalk worth it?  Does it reformat the screen so it's readable on the iPhone?  Any advice before I blow $2.99 (I'm a Software Scrooge) appreciated.

It's not bad. Not perfect but not bad. Here's 2 screenshots:

I have it installed and I love it. Had similar doubts as you did before deciding to blow the $2.99, but I'm glad I ended up spending the money. Can't imagine myself going back to browsing this forum on Safari.

I love it on my Android phone too.  Awesome for keeping up with the GDTs during games and catching up at random times. :)

Wow, thanks Zee, char, pn -- you've convinced me.  Thanks esp. Zee for the screenshots!  Maybe I'll follow the GDT on the phone while keeping my laptop on fullscreen instead of switching back and forth.

Every once in a while I notice a bug where I can't read something that someone has quoted. Not really sure why, maybe it's multiple quotes that screw up. Generally it's pretty good for reading / posting. Way easier than zooming in and out on Safari that's for sure.

Got it the other day and I like it -- thanks for the advice!
