I'm very pleased to announce support for Tapatalk and Forum Runner here at Mu-43.

These are inexpensive apps (with free versions on some platforms) which make it easier to read and post in our forums from mobile devices with small displays and/or limited bandwidth.

  • Tapatalk has support for iOS, Android, Blackberry and Nokia. There is also support for Windows Phone 7 and WebOS via third party apps.

  • Forum Runner currently supports iOS and Android with announced plans to support Windows Mobile (Phone 7?) and Blackberry.

I've used both Tapatalk and Forum Runner on my iOS and Android devices. Both are very slick, useful apps. Features are different, so check out the user reviews before buying.

If you try one or both of these apps, let us know what you think of them in this thread!


Please note:

  • These apps will only work with forums which support them. Don't buy thinking they will work with all forums (eg, DPReview, etc).

  • It is possible though (unlikely) that we will have to remove support for these apps in the future if security issues arise.

  • As a general security measure, remember to use a different password for forums like Mu-43 than you use for your email, banking, etc.

You may notice in some of my posts that there is a signature line saying "posted from Tapatalk" or "posted from Forum Runner". This is totally optional in each of those apps. I just have it enabled in order to help spread the word.

Hi -

I've been using Tapatalk for a while now and it is quite good: the only downside is that there is no access to moderator tools. If you have mod rights on one of the forums running this software, you know what I mean: the admin tool button and the forum tool button are not available.

Other than that: first Android app I spontaneously paid for. Works great, less filling. :)

The forum, by the way, works fine using tapatalk. Was able to find without much looking and it's a great way to access using a smartphone...

Thanks, Travis!

Both are nice on my iPod Touch and Nexus S. I'm going back and forth between them and haven't decided which one to stay with, but I like both better than using the default web browser.

I follow APUG and now Mu-43 on tapatalk. Very handy.

One issue: If I click on an attachment photo, how do I return to the thread? There are no navigation icons displayed when viewing a photo.

I'm on an ipod touch 3rd gen. Thanks

Hello Brockton,

You really sent me on a trip down memory lane by contacting me to ask after photos I took in the early to mid 70's.

I have no idea how you managed to find me, but it's all good.

I did delve into the old file cabinet and I've found several more published advertising shots that I did in your area of interest...

I sent you a PM giving you my personal email address.

Welcome to MU-43

I can't seem to find a way to save the forums in forum runner on my iPad. I have to keep searching for it. Is there a way to do this?

In the top right corner on forum runner you will see the arrow, hit add to favorites then it will place a quick short cut on its home screen.

Thanks Amin. You made me discover Tapatalk (iOS). It is much faster in 3G, and way more legible than my browsers on a small screen.

Thanks Amin - I've used Tapatalk quite a bit in the past for other forums but have just signed up here. Good to see you're there!
