Mobile users: did you know?

Did you know? For over a year, PentaxForums.com has been a very mobile-friendly site, with not only a mobile skin (activated automatically if you log on via a mobile device), but also support for a native forum browsing application, Tapatalk!

Tapatalk is a mobile forum app for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry. Tapatalk supports vBulletin, phpBB, IPB and SMF forums and forum owner can activate this service for free. Tapatalk supports all the usual forum functions plus full screen image viewing, image upload, caching (less reload), private messaging, all these features are accessible in just a few simple taps.

Showing New and Unread Thread with Avatar and Number of reply:


Images are thread are converted to thumbnail and allow full-screen viewing


Ability to see Who's Online and what they are doing:


Ability to search by topics and posts:


Ability to upload images directly from Android and iPhone!:



You can download tapatalk from your phone manufacturer's app store.

I have to say I have been a iPhone user since it first came out and never used that app. I will check it out after seeing this.

Sadly, I'm a Windows Mobile user... But that's OK, as a Pentaxian, I'm used to my devices not being supported.

Just use the mobile skin then- that's what I do!

I use Tapatalk extensively. There are some functions that I actually prefer to the standard browser functions so I occasionally use my Droid for those things even when I'm in front of my PC.

No, in that case I will need your device's user agent string so I can add it to the detection list.

I would like to use the full website on an iPad without using tapatalk or buying some other browser to imitate a desktop. Is this possible?

Just go to your user control panel CP and disable the mobile skin when you login from your iPad.

IIRC there are a few different Tapatalk versions, some of which are either deprecated or in the process of becoming so...at least, on iOS, that seems the case (I had all sorts of grief with Tapatalk HD lately, whereas Tapatalk 2 just flies). Maybe that could be it on your other phone?
