I regularly post to the forum from tapatalk via my iPhone and iPad. Within the last month, tapatalk no longer works on either device. I have updated all software and applications. What gives?

I think John has been working on this. There was a forum software update about a month ago, and Tapatalk quit working after the update.

The new interface on a tablet or smartphone browser is not bad. I still use Tapatalk for other forums.

As do I. I have no other way to post my photos, which is the true bummer :(

Tapatalk tech support has been slow to respond and want all of my passwords. I sent them over two weeks ago and nada. They blow....

So this explains it. I was thinking to myself that Steeds had been awfully quiet lately. Then last night I logged on from the computer for the first time in months, and saw a ton of stuff I had been missing. I do hope it gets fixed soon, as I rarely get on forums from my computer or browser.

Use the chrome browser on your phone or tablet. The new layout makes tapatalk obsolete.

Chrome seems to be a great app. Runs very fast. Unfortunately, I cannot "simply" post my photos via it, as I do with Tapatalk (which uploads directly from my phone and hosts the photo) and would need to switch between a photo sharing site and SS. That's what I did before using tapatalk. I don't think I'm interested in taking a step backward in ease of use.

I can upload both live and stored pictures, see here: http://www.sovietsteeds.com/forums/view ... 57#p497657

Use the camera settings on your phone to lower the resolution to have pictures >2MB.

Any update on this? Anything that we can do to help get access to SS via TaT again?

I have tried 5 times to work with Tapatalk tech support to get this resolved without response. Just going to have to suck it up and live without it. Sorry, I tried...
