It's not on here. Not sure who the hell told you that, but I've had tapatalk for awhile and it's not on there.

You just spent $1.99 on a lie.

They have other good forums though, like the Big Blue Hurdle or Huddle.

It was a post from you moke you said you use tapatalk or forum runner
Thought you were saying TAGF was available on there

No lol , I said I use tapatalk AND forumrunner for OTHER forums.

I was asking the mods if they can find out about putting the forum on it... which I doubt they will do.

Ok Thanx for clearing that up
Hopefully it will get in there
Is this forum software compatible?
Any idea what's involved?
Let's make it happen if possible

Sorry dude.

Yep, the mods or mod or whoever has to go to the tapatalk website and get it started. I hear it only takes 5-10 minutes, but it needs to be an admin or moderator.

I'd love to get it done so I can post via phone.

Let's keep this thread alive and use it as a petition to the mods to get it going if possible
If not, an answer as to why not would be good.

Post from my Android all the time. could never figure out the scramble over Tapatalk since this and every other forum I frequent run fine on my lower tier Android phone. Surely the mighty IPhone can do it if my Android can do it?

Because Safari sucks, or google chrome, or any browser on a smartphone that you need to zoom in and stuff.

Tapatalk gives you an app that is easy to access. Don't see the problem.

Zooming in and stuff is a pain in the ***. I've done it before and it's annoying.

I agree, it is possible to post from the phone brower but a mobile app would be so much better! Yes, we are spoiled in America..

Moke

It's not even about lazy, it's about battery usage.

It's much easier and better for the battery by using a mobile app rather than going on safari and having to zoom in and out constantly.

Maybe we can have Harooni stage a protest, where he won't come back until we get a mobile app?

Ah, ok. So I assume you are just able to see a simplified version of the forums. Is a Mobile version of the site that you could load up in a browser an answer as well then?

I can see why the Giants dont want to get involved with Tapatalk. It is a paid app, it comes with a certain amount of front end advertizing (this may be optional, but I see a lot of sites that clobber you with a pop over to purchase tapatalk when you load the site in a mobile browser) NFL teams dont often get in financial bed with just anyone, its a major undertaking for a result that many users might see as the Giants trying to sell them software in order to use the boards.

It's free to get it set up, so I have no idea where you see anything involved with payments.

The only people paying for this is US, the ones who want to pay $1.99 for the app to access the board and various other boards.

Paid apps don't have advertisements... so advertisements have nothing to do with it.

The IT folks are looking into this. They would prefer to integrate the MBs into the Giants' mobil app and is a work in progress.

Moke

Great. If they can do that, then that's fine too. As long as it's clean-cut and easier to access.


I hate zooming in to press little parts of the screen.

This is a vBulletin site and they have an available "mobile style" that integrates with the forum. It detects the browser and optimizes the page view for that device. The current mindset of the mobile community is that we need less apps and better mobile sites.

I'm on another board and Forumrunner is currently not working on iPhones right now and the owner is putting the forum on tapatalk today. So it shouldn't be long at all to install tapatalk.

The moderators aren't the ones standing in the way, it'd be the administrators (Giants marketing, or something?). Should hassle them.

Assuming the 'contact us' link actually goes to the admins like it says it does, perhaps you could try requesting the feature via 'site feedback'? http://boards.giants.com/sendmessage.php

It said in this thread that IT was looking into it.
All they have to do is activate the mobile version of this site or activate tapatalk, then work the forum into the mobile app at their leisure.
I browse thisn forum 99% of the time from an iPhone. I hardly ever post due to the hastle.

Yeah it's probably a bit more difficult than just pressing a button. This being an extension of a massive brand, any alterations would probably have to go through some lengthy approval process.
I'm just guessing, though.

It's getting worse foe me lately.
I can't ways click thread links. Sometimes the links load but I get the thread above the one I selected.
Also when I go from a thread back to the forum sometimes the links flash like they are gettig bigger then smaller.

I barely post here if I am on my phone. It's too much of a hassle. It's too bad because I'd love to really post from Tapatalk.

I can't stand zooming in constantly and not sure what everyone is talking about because even vbulletin on my browser isn't coming up with a nice, smooth render of the site.

I have too many problems with my browser and accessing the boards to even bother wasting time. Plus, it wastes a lot of my battery having to reload the images and **** on my mobile browser.
