I saw a reference to Tapatalk on another forum I frequent and was curious if it would work as a relatively quick, easy way to optimize these forums for mobile users. Has anyone considered it? I don't know enough about the guts of this site to know whether it'd even work.
According to the site there's a free plug-in for forum administrators - if that was something cost-effective (taking into consideration the integration with the site, of course) and would lead to a good user experience, then those of us who use smart phones could download the supporting app.

We have definitely thought about working at a forum template for mobile users. The product in question doesn't look to support our forum that we use, but we are still considering possibly implementing a special mobile template for the forums and looking into options.

We're still looking at options, but tapatalk isn't one of them due to the fact that they do not offer support for the forum software we use. It's difficult to find a basic mobile forum software application since we don't run a phpbb forum or any of the more popular ones.
There is some hope here, our content management system recently released a plugin that allows for mobile optimization. Costs a bit of money, but I will speak to Sangiro about it and see if we can get it to happen.
