    What's the advantage of having tapatalk on my mobile rather than just using my standard functionality to access Zorg....?

    Is it a "must have" if I'm going to use my phone to access the site?

    From a personal point of view it's a lot easier than having to scroll, zoom, pinch etc to see what you want to look at. Here are some screen shots from my Android phone version...

    Thank you so much for a comprehensive reply.

    That looks like a neat app to have - is that the £1.99 one??

    Yes, it's the £1.99 one from the Android store. Do you have an Android Snoops? If you have an iPhone I can do some screen shots from that, just need to find my iPhone though! Pretty similar functionality, although they look slightly different.

    Gary this reply is sent from a free app called Convo which is a tapatalk client using Mrs Ragtop's android phone.

    Thanks Ron,

    The convo version is a great way of keeping up with the threads and new posts! I used it for a few days, but got frustrated as it didn't allow me to do everything I needed!

    Would be a good idea to install Convo though to get an idea of what it does, before splashing out!

    There is an overlap of smilies which both understand, and some which are only understood by Tapatalk and some only by phpBB3 (the forum software).

    That means if you put a Tapatalk only smilie in a post, it will only show on tapatalk - and vice versa.

    We can add specific smilies from Tapatalk in to phpBB3, but I don't think there is a way to change Tapatalk...

    Hope that makes sense.
