    Is anyone else having problems with tapatalk? When I launch the app is just stays on the loading screen with the title. I deleted the app and reinstalled still the same. I also tried killing the app in multitasking. I'm on an iPhone 4 if that makes a difference.

    No issues here in NY. I was able to load my automotive forums that I follow with no issues. Are you having issues with other APPS that need Internet access? Try a hard reboot. I usually turn the iDevice off then turn it on a minute later. Overkill but it solves many issues.

    I was using the official app every day before I gave tapatalk a trial run. My question is if there are any advantages or disadvantages to using one over the other. I was hoping that tapatalk would have a feature where if you reply to a post, you are subscribed. This feature doesn't appear to be available in the forum software.

    I don't get your "Subscribed" issue. No one else seems to have that problem. And the app is the same for everyone. Did you try deleting the app, then reinstalling it? TapaTalk offers a dark theme. I like using that at times. But I use the iCafe app 99% of the time. That's the only + I see for TapaTalk. The iCafe app has been great.

    I think it may just be an issue with the forum and that the feature is not supported. I have deleted the app more than once to see if that would resolve it. The issue is that when I reply to a topic, it would be great if I automatically follow that topic after my reply. As it is right now, once I reply I have to go back and press the star to subscribe to that topic. I looked through all the settings in both apps and could not find a setting or anything to do with when you reply to a topic. If the feature is not there, why would it worn for you? Maybe someone can jump in and help to clear this up.

    I don't have a clue. Works on my apps. Maybe it's something that needs setting on the mobile site in your browser or on computer. ?

    Do you actually use the site in the browser or on your phone? I'm saying that it does not work on the app. You have to manually subscribe to topics once you reply.

    I use mobile Safari to access eiC on my phone. You said you were going to check the mobile and full site and I thought I could save you some time.

    Yeah. That did help. Can anyone confirm it is working in the app? I use the app almost exclusively.

    I was having a problem replying through the eiC app and had to use the mobile site. The text was getting cut off so I was not able to see the rest of my reply that I was typing. Anyway, I checked the alert preferences and one of the options is to alert you when you reply. Is it possible to have this added to the app?

    I don't see that alert option. I also have problems with quotes not showing what I type. Sometimes I can drag the screen up and that works. Other times I abort the quote reply and start over. It only seems to do that on quotes.

    @silvermoon One thing I've noticed is the longer the quoted text, the more problems seeing what I type. So you could delete some of the quote in some cases. That helps.

    Yeah, I did try to drag the screen up to see if I can type but that didn't work so I had to resort to the mobile site. I'll try removing some of the quote or aborting the post and trying again.

    Does Tapatalk support AppleInsiders and MacRumors? How is the current version? I saw a free and paid version in the App Store. My main concern is that I might lose some functionality in the official app that is not in Tapatalk. If you are using Tapatalk, feel free to comment.
