I have been using Tapatalk to read this forum up until the last couple of weeks. It seems Tapatalk will no longer connect to this forum. I’m wondering if anyone has suggestions on what other readers to use on smart phones and tablet computers? Web browsers and my old eyes do not work well together when it comes to accessing this forum.

The forum works perfectly with Chrome on mobile devices, no matter now small the screen is. Resize screen as you lik it better by placing two finges of the display and slowling opening them up - pinch zoom.

I pinned this to the top of this section 😉

Chrome does not work as well as Tapatalk, for me. I was hoping someone knew of a forum reader app similar to Tapatalk that works with this forum. After searching for such as app, I have not found any. 
 

Just in case Mark or a forum admin sees this post, I am NOT advocating re-enabling the Tapatalk plugin on the forum.  I think Tapatalk has stepped over the line with their recent policy changes. I do not like using Chrome to read forums on mobile devices, but I rather use Chrome than Tapatalk at this point.

What does not work? What device are you using?

This forum software (Invision) is the absolute leader, and is designed to work equally well on both desktop and mobile. My experience since 6 years fully confirms that.

I hate to disagree, but after using TT for several years, not just this forum, I can say that the mobile version of this site - wether loaded in chrome or safari on iPad, iPhone and my wife’s galaxy S8 runs much much better than TT. There are some features that just do not work in TT aside from my gripes with images not being hosted but rather being uploaded to TT servers (not sure if that’s changed) and the horrible advertising I cannot manage the forum through TT - I can manage the whole forum via the mobile version loaded into chrome or safari. I am writing this in chrome on my iPhone, it’s easy to quote, select quote, and edit. There is nothing I can’t do and many more things I can perform that I cannot do in TT. 
Tapatalk has outlived its usefulness. If we lose some members then I’m sorry - but it’s not coming back - too many bugs and errors to deal with. 
 

invision has a competing app but I have decided on the KISS rule and I think that’s how we shall keep it from now on. 
I hope that’s ok.

I have never used tapatalk on any forum.

Currently I use Safari, when on my iPhone, and any issues are attributed to my ineffective, overpriced cable provider, not to the forum software.

I us TT to read 8 forums on 5 subjects. TT allows me to navigate the forums in a uniform way, no matter which forum I am on or what software is being used to run the forum.

As you pointed out, there are a number of things TT does not allow one to do, or does not do well. I only read and post on forums, thus, I only need basic forum functionality.  Even so, TT can be a pain.

I guess the conclusion to this thread is that I need to learn how to use a web browser to read my forums.  
Thanks everyone for your responses.
