To access the fishlore forum, do you use the tapatalk app or the fishlore app? The fishlore app is just a branded version of the tapatalk app.

If you do, have you tried using just the mobile version of the site on your phone's browser since our latest upgrade? The mobile version of the site is better than the tapatalk and fishlore app in my opinion. The mobile browser version has full forum functionality whereas the tapatalk and fishlore apps do not.

The main reason I'm curious about this is because I'm thinking about stopping support for tapatalk and the fishlore app. There are several reasons for this but mainly tapatalk is the culprit for some of the speed issues I'm seeing on the server. And with the mobile version of the site working fine, tapatalk is not really needed any longer. It's one less thing I'd have to maintain. And it is a pain to keep it updated.

I use both my phone and desktop browser. I used to use the app in order to get notifications, but that was the only way I used it. The browser looks far better and even though I got notifications on my phone from the app, they would never actually show up in the app for me to see. Notifications randomly stopped coming to me from the app, but now I'm able to get them from my browser instead. If removing Tapatalk speeds the site up, I'm happy! I've heard others mention using Tapatalk though.

The only thing about the api like is photos from the post show up on main screen. But I dont like the app. Mobile browser is easy to use.

Have you tried to use the mobile app to upload photos since we upgraded? That should be resolved with this new version of the forum.

Ok I go through the App to put pics up on here but mostly browse on my PC. What is the mobile browser? Through a search engine?

Well the app you download. Mobile browser is the internet on your phone without downloadong
Yeah I had the app installed so when I even tried to go in through google it brought me to the app. Through the browser you have all of the emojis and stuff where the app did not. I didn't care for the app anyway so now its gone.

I use the Fishlore app when I access the site from my phone, because I always have a ton of stuff open on my phone's web app and its one less thing I have to deal with. But I'm not attached to the Fishlore app, so I won't be heart broken if you drop it.

I almost exclusively use the fishlore app! I only have time to keep up with this stuff when I'm on the train or waiting around somewhere... the mobile site is a huge pain in my current phone configuration.
