Has the forum ever been on tapatalk? Or would the owner/mods ever consider it? I use the site on my mobile and it would probably make it easier for me or other users to get on the site whilst out and about.

Never heard of it, we'll have a look.

Any Mayhemers interested?

Neither have I.  What it actually does would be of interest as more and more folks have portable devices these days. I researched the web but nothing of any detail at the moment.

I had a quick play with it on another forum (using an Android tablet) a year or so ago. It all looked and behaved the same as without it, so I got my money back before my 15 minutes was up.
YMMV  :-)

It's so you can have all your forums you visit on an app, it's mobile friendly and allows you to upload pictures and videos from your mobile rather than putting them on the PC then onto photo bucket for example and then loading them onto the site. Also sometimes on websites it's difficult to use on a mobile device which is why tapatalk is there, for those who want to know more details go onto your App Store on apple products don't know what it is for other androids and type in tapatalk  and it will tell you  :-))

It cost me 1.50 about a year ago, it's not a replacement for the forum it's an addition and could quite possibly attract new members  O0

I use it for plenty of other forums, it makes most forums work much smoother on mobile devices. 
Personally I'd love to have MBM on Tapatalk.  The app is a one time purchase like any other app but not sure of any costs to the forum itself to get set up with them.
It would probably generate more new members in my opinion and does allow for easier uploading of pics and forum updates from mobile devices.


Either way I'll keep reading the forums wether it's available on Tapatalk or regular browser.

I've found the various forums I use are resolved just as good using a web browser on my tablet,without resorting tapatalk. It may be different if you are using a smart phone, but then again phone is the giveaway, use it for calls not for web surfing!

I use chrome on my iPad and have never had an issue with MBM or any other forum for that matter.  With regards to posting pictures, I prefer to use photobucket for hosting pictures online.
I did try tapatalk a few years ago and it didn't work very well on my phone

Like I said I can take it or leave it however most of the forums I use with tapatalk are better than with the browser on my mobile devices.
I most prefer my laptop but as life is quite busy it isn't always an option.

Sound a like most here aren't interested.
