    All of you with iPhones that find the site hard to use with Safari can now access the site using Tapatalk. The app is $2.99 but you get access to over 400 forums in the Tapatalk network and the list keeps on growing.

    There are some flaws with the app, smiles do not show. Image handling leaves a bit to be desired, but when one is on the razors edge with these types of apps one is bound to get cut.

    For more information on the app please visit the Tapatalk site

    Motoring Alliance gets nothing for the App sale but like stated, there is access to loads of other forums. For you clubs that may want to add this to your site. There is not charge for the forum software, jsut the app, and you have to be running vBulletin.

    I wonder if this applies to iPod Touch as well; most iPhone apps, etc, do.

    This is worth the $ if for no other reason than having a constant pipeline into the gold that must be spewing on "El Camino Central."

    Reminds me of an ultimate cheer we used to do in college:

    El - Camino, El El - Camino.

    The front is like a car.

    The back is like a truck.

    The front is where you drive.

    The back is where you EL CAMINO, EL EL CAMINO.

    :lol:

    Was that inappropriate?

    You make fun of it now but when you have a question about mullet maintenance or if spilling your Keystone light down the Quadrajet qualifies your car for an alternative fuel tax credit you'll know where to go.

    M/A - There's an App for that.

    Lots of new updates to Tapatalk. You will need to update the app on your device.

    - New feature in Tapatalk Network, now you can browse and discover forums by name and by their popularity.
    - Added iOS4 multi-tasking support with auto-refresh topics, threads and private messaging (Check your settings, default is 30 minutes)
    - Ability to insert inline images with Tapatalk hosted image upload.
    - In Unread tab, now the topic will be removed as soon as you have read it, revert it back to what you were used to (Check the Settings if you want the 1.9 behavior back)
    - Fixed crash when removing last private messages (Oops!)
    - NEW! Ability to display avatar and number of replies in the topic listing view (You'll love this feature)
    - Ability to set the font size in thread viewing screen (great for elderly like me!)
    - Fixed avatars not appear issue (You can still turn it off, check the Settings)
    - Now "Next Page" button will jump to the top of the page, not the bottom (if you have previously turned on "jump to last post" in Settings)
    - Forum Owners: We added ability to hide "Latest" and/or "Search" tab if Tapatalk usage is affecting your server performance (not a problem on M/A as the server has a lot of room for growth still.)
