    Any way to get the forum to use Tapatalk?

    I use it on all the other forums, makes picture sharing fast/easy.

    Main reason I use it. Since the photobucket deal.

    Just curious.

    That's why we moved to this forum - so we can upload pics directly to this site and not rely on external sites to host.

    Ya see Red.. We couldn't chip in money over at AA and we wanted to be able to... The money finances storage and helps fund the site. Photos nice and safe here and photobucket can go get bent. ;)

    Red97, are you having issues loading pics with your phone??
    What phone are you using??
    This forum software is supposed to work without neededing tap talk.
    Just hit upload file button and select your photo on your phone... 20180128_140736.jpg

    No real issues, just twice as long if not more upload time with my crappy wifi. Even if using good 4g signal

    I realize the issue is on my end, was just curious. Obviously if it is cost prohibiting than I have no problem using the site as is.

    I only use the tapatalk for picture posting, use the online/browser version for looking At threads/ text reply.

    I only have my phone/tablet. No laptop or desktop.

    Just a speed thing, on my Wi-Fi I guess. That was a quick upload on 4g 20180127_111740.jpg

    I've tried uploading pics from my iPhone 7 and it always tells me files are too large.

    I'm using a galaxy s8, never says anything about file size.

    S8+ working good here. I went through a period where I had to back the size down. But okay these days. If you android guys need a decent ap, look for Photo Resizer. It's free and easy.

    Waiting for the s9 release. Hopefully it has a flat screen. I can't handle the curved smashable one. I drop mine all the time.

    Been lucky with mine so far. Stuck one of those 30dollar soft plastic covers on the face. It's saved me many times. For the rest of it, my phone is in an otter box. It's taken a few hits and I cringe everytime.

    I'm HARSH on phones.

    Mines got a HD silicone rubber bumper car seal and 6061-T6 aluminum aircraft case wrapped around it.

    Not intentionally but I've dropped it and accidentally kicked it across the driveway, garage and LR once or twice.
    That case is almost indestructible.
    Only sucky thing about it is when I try to use the speaker on calls people complain they can hardly hear me.
    That option works great when the wife calls, can't hear ya dear, by. :D

    Be careful with Tapatalk. They might inadvertantly reformat the web version of the forum to better suite their app usage. Something like that happened to a firearms forum I used to visit recently and the tribe over there is fairly peeved about it.

    Also, Tapatalk works great!! on my phone but their desktop app is positively awful.
