    Tutorial: Mobile Device Application, iPhone, Android & more

    The new mobile device application is hosted by Tapatalk. It is not a free application, but it is not too expensive (currently $2.99 for iPhone) and can allow you to visit many forums! It loads pages very quickly in a compressed format and also allow you to share and upload photos taken from your mobile device.

    I took the liberty of taking many screenshots so our members can check it out before making the purchase. Unfortunately it does not compress blogs or articles, so those would be viewed in your mobile device's normal state. Note these screenshots are taken with an iPod, it may vary depending on your mobile device.

    Here is the link for more information.

    Eventually we may take the plunge to provide a FREE application, but this is very costly to do and we do not have the funds available for this. I love it because now I don't have to print recipes, I just need my iPod in the kitchen!

    Okay, lets get on with the photo tutorial!

    Tap on your profile to see what it looks like on the app, and you can change your pic by using the photos in your mobile device. Click on "My Topics or My Posts" in your profile to see your topics/posts quickly and easily!

    Here is more available settings:


    To view photos on the forum they are compressed into thumbnails, so far I see that all images show up, whether they are added via mobile device, photobucket, imageshack, or through the forum.


    Tap on any image to make it full size:

    Let me know if you have any questions, I will try to answer them to the best of my ability!

    This will be very handy since you can just use that as your grocery list when running out real quick.
