I would like to know this.  The cost associated with this, does it go on the administrator to add it to the site, or is it per user to get it on their phone?  I'm kind of confused.

The package and the usage of the services are free. For your phone, you get to choose between a free or paid application. So, the user decides whether he pays or not. Although the free app seems to have it's limitations, (I've heard).

i think you can't post from your phone with the free app only read

When will this have support for RC4? I am waiting until my main modifications (the important ones) have RC4 support before I upgrade. This is holding me back.

I will also post this on the Tapatalk website.

Oya

jeez be patient, it's been out a day or two, with lots of changes, mod authors need time to fix things

I tested it installed no errors. but it wont verify on tapatalk.com's end. "not installed: error (1)" something like that

PLAYBOY

Does it recognize the person who is connected from phone and switch the theme automatically?
Even changing the theme option is disabled?

But everybody else who uses computer will still have the regular theme up?

1.1.12

zg4me

Tapatalk package installed fine for me too, files/folders there, won't verify though: Not Installed: Server Error(1)

Chmod 7xx is kinda useless on Windows 2008 Web edition.  ::)
forum.concours.org/
SMF 1.1.11, php 5.2.10, MySQL 5.x

Maybe Tapatalk support can post a solution here, saving me from registering on yet another forum  :-\

ok. Here is my feedback about this mod. Its gonna be a little hardcore but honest feedback.

1- The link provided on description http://tapatalk.com/en/plugin wont work.
2- I have a mytouch android and it didint make any changes to my forum view. even after changing the chmods.
3- I thought it would recognize the person connecting from cellphone and switch the mobile mode instantly but nothing like that is there.
4- I feel like this mod is made to advertise tapatalk app. because its so hard to find info about the free version but the info about paid version is everywhere.
5- I couldnt get it work. I couldnt understand the explanations. I couldnt even get answers to my questions before hand.
6- First thing it asks you when you go to your forum after installing this mod is that if you wanna buy the tapatalk or not.
So as a result i would not recommend this mod to anybody.
It doesnt fit-in what SMF stands for. FREE

I've been using Tapatalk on my Motorola Droid for some time with my SMF forum.  From the feedback that you provided, it sounds to me like you aren't using the app correctly.  Your answers on #2 and #3 lead me to think that you are looking at the site in the mobile browser and not through the actual app.  It will not switch to the Tapatalk app automatically, like a theme change.  I'm not trying to insult your intelligence, but you do know that its a separate app that needs to be installed and that you do not run it from the mobile's browser, right?

The mod installation doesn't do much to SMF, nothing that you are going to see unless you use the Tapatalk app.  When you bring up the app, you won't see anything resembling your SMF site.  You should see screens like these:


The app icon is in the second row from the bottom, third one from the left.  That launches Tapatalk.

 

As for the price, there is no price for installing the mod to your site.  The end user is the one who will be paying the price for the app , if they choose to use it.  I'll be happy to help if you wish to take another look at the mod and app.  It really can be useful.

My members on my RC3 forum have liked the addition of the App.  I haven't upgraded to RC4 because I'm waiting for some mods that I use to get updated first.

But, I updated this last night to another test forum that is running RC4.  I used the package that they have on their site because I learned in the past that the mod gets updated and released there first.  I had no problem installing the mod and publishing it on their site.  There are easy step by step instructions there that make it pretty much fool-proof.

Also, I don't like having to register at every single place for something I'm going to use one time, but I think of it as the cost of something that is free.  If I can't register and take a little bit of effort out of my own day for something that I'm not getting charged for... well, I won't pass judgment on that behavior.  It's nothing to do in return for getting something as useful as the App.  (Also, I've found that when I had questions in the past, they were answered just as quick, if not quicker, than on the SMF site for support, so it was worth the time to register.)

As far as price goes, Apps are freaking cheap.  It's less than a coffee/mocha/cappuccino. As far as the comment about it not fitting in with the Free-ness of SMF, you still use  hosting, your domain name, your computer, your electricity to run the computer, etc etc etc and it didn't keep you from using SMF.

I started using this plugin but I'm a little concerned for security. It is yet another door opened to your site & SMF. Mine is not an educated concern of course since I know very little about security. Is there anyone out there more qualified than I am (which is probably all of you) who can comment on this? Thank you.

I am having issues with sessions I think.  If I come to the site and virtue new posts button, I get nothing.  This is when in fact there are many new posts.  If toto log put I get an error about sessions.  I will get the exact error message next time.

Another problem, and I suspect it's related is that the tapatalk doesn't show up to date information.  Today I am here on Tapatalk and its showing yesterdays information.  I can see new posts in the new posts section, but when I go onto the thread its displayed only to the point it was at yesterday afternoon when I visited via tapatalk.  For example, in the Rounds death penalty thread,  it shows in the post listing that Drudger made a post at like 10 something this morning, but when I go into it, my post "well its true" is the last one visible to me on Tapatalk.  I even replied and I can't see my reply either.

I think this MOD is not approved by SMF Open code laws... Or is it?

I was having issues trying to verify my installation setting the folder to 775 did not seem to help at all. I eventually found that changing permissions to the folder and the on the mobiquo.php file to 755 seemed to resolve all the issues I was having.
