We're considering making the forums Tapatalk enabled
 Thoughts?

Is there any downside to doing so?

Can it be optional? And am I going to be prompted for it every time I visit on my phone? I'm not a fan and the constant prompts I've run into on other sites are annoying.

I've made it this long without knowing.  The link will only spoil it.

OK guys - I think we've got Tapatalk installed.  Someone go give it a try :)

Since this voodoo appeared the site takes forever to load on my phone without the app installed.

weird - I hadn't noticed any change.  Let's ask the group!

What Mirth said. The duel pop-up is annoying as hell. :tickedoff:

I never realized there was a dual pop up. I will see if there is some way to disable it

I have also seen the popup now when visiting the site from a mobile device and for some reason when I try to close it, won't go away without a fight.  Eventually will close, but takes a very long time.

How does Tapatalk work? Do you have to add forums to a list or does it automatically recognize forums that have the tapatalk thingie already enabled? Is there a way to make a favorites list in the app and if so how do I add or remove them? Once on the groheads site how do I get the unread topics list up so I don't have to check each forum for new topics or replies I want to read first? There don't seem to be a lot of intuitive options available when running the tapatalk app.  ???
