Hey guys,
             I have no idea about the complexities of addon development but I had one of my forum members suggest Tapatalk. Do any of you use it at all?

It's supported by all the other major forum providers. Would it be a big task to design?

Cheers,

From what I've just read about Tapatalk there are very real disincentives in integrating it into you forum.

See: https://support.tapatalk.com/threads/an-open-message-to-the-tapatalk-developers.15374/ .

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy S / Galaxy S II ? If so, why not check out my ScreenFree FM Radio .

Its not just the profit side of thinks, it the fact that you basically loose all creative control of the presentation of your forum.

And if you want creative control through Tabatalk you have to pay for it (i.e. what they refer to as branding).

Things like Tapatalk could be bad in the long run for all. I think it better to avoid those kind of apps where too much control is taken away from the site owners. There are other ways to get the benefits it provides without giving up control or revenue.

I use it to post on several forums which run on PhPBB3 and it seems decent enough but not really considered using it for ocPortal as it works fine on most phones anyway from what i have seen unless you heavily customise the layout
