    Martin , Jul 4, 2014 :
    Today I bring you guys some potentially bad news. We've been running with TapaTalk enabled since a month or so, but as originally stated it was only for a trial period after which we would evaluate if it fit our needs.

    Unfortunately it does not. TapaTalk lacks support for our custom OnePlus Account which would be quite a headache for us to deal with. To make TapaTalk work for us we'd have to make significant changes and it's simply not the correct time for that right now.

    In addition the code is honestly not very good. There are numerous bugs and the TapaTalk developers are just barely responsive with bug fix releases taking months. To add insult to injury a security error was added into an already existing version instead of releasing a new version - tricking people into thinking they already had the fix applied while they didn't.

    While we can appreciate that some people find TapaTalk useful it is a nightmare to run it for us and as such we have made the decision to disable TapaTalk support as of Monday the 7th.

    In future we will definitely be exploring the possibility of a custom app that will work well with our set up, but until then our forum is responsive and should work well on mobile phones. If you have any problems using it on a phone please don't hesitate to let us know and we will see about getting a fix coded up for your issue.

    OK. It was broken.

    What we would need is a list of messages unread since the last visit, that'd be great. Tapatalk has that.

    Otherwise, the website works just as well.

    Aww.. :( I was actually quite liking to use it on my phone rather than use a laptop/mobile browser every time.. :(

    But at least you have valid reasons :)

    Not a big loss, I'm pretty happy with how the forum works from a mobile anyway.. Tapatalk is amazing for other places, but OnePlus have made a good job having a forum that works very good on a smartphone!

    Shame, but I understand the decision.

    Tapatalk, is pretty horrendeus app if your forums is even a little bit customized and setup and admininstrating is a pain in the ***.
