I mostly browse the net and post on forums using my phone. This site won't even let me log in from my phone.
It's not like my phone isn't made for this, it's an HTC Evo 4G. But this site just doesn't work correctly on it for some reason.
Anyway, a mobile app is way better than the web browser. And I know there are lots of mobile platforms, which would require lots of apps.
Tapatalk is an easy solution. Check it out here:
It's totally free to get up and running on the site, and from what I understand, it only takes a couple of minutes to get set up.
Once set up, anyone with a tapatalk app on their phone can start using that app instead of their web browser.
There is current a WebOS (Palm), Android, iPhone, Windows Phone, Blackberry, and Nokia app. So that is just about every smartphone platform.
This makes it a whole lot better to post on message boards using a smartphone. And if you don't do that already, maybe you will once you try out tapatalk.
Think about these 2 scenarios...
1: You are at a store. There is a great deal on a particular part- lets say a basket. You take a picture of that basket using your phone's camera, open tapatalk, and post about the sale, and include the picture. All this is done right from your phone and only takes about 30 seconds.
2: You're at a cookout in the park. You take some awesome q-view pictures using your phone's camera. You make the thread and post the pictures right from your phone, in like a minute.
There are countless times when this would be infinitely handier than using the digital camera, connecting it to your computer, transferring the images over, etc. And since a lot of the forums on the net are already compatible with tapatalk, you could use this same app on most (or all) of the forums you follow.
It's a lot more convenient, and a lot faster than booting up your computer. Especially when pictures are involved and you have to dig out your camera, take the pictures, boot up your computer, transfer the pictures to your computer, then make your post.
I'm not affiliated with tapatalk in any way. I just use the app pretty much all day and it would be nice if it worked on this site too.
