    I wanted everyone to know that by the end of the week we will be converting to Tapatalk. If you see any issues with the current mobile app please hold tight while we convert. Thanks, and I know this will be a positive change for the community, and the issues with the mobile app.

    We will be doing away with the current standalone app, it will be through "tapatalk" which is a community based forum where you can have all your forums in one place.

    It is supported by Android and IOS, just do a search for "tapatalk" in the apple store or google play market

    Any questions, feel free to ask

    I wanted to clarify something. There will still be a Marlin Forum branded application, however instead of being a branded ForumRunner one, we will be using Tapatalk as the backend. There is no need to go and download Tapatalk, just update the Marlin Forum application you have now and it will work just fine.

    I've got both apps (TT/FR) on my phone. Is there an advantage of one over the other?

    The Forum Runner will not be avaliable once the update goes through, it will have the tapatalk as the backend

    I started the Tapatalk installation. Got as far as giving permission for them to have my FB personal information including my list of friends. Sorry folks. My privacy setting are set to keep that information private. So I cancelled the process. There may be ways around my FB settings that I'm not aware of but I won't deliberately give out my friends list w/o their permission.
    Just the way I am.
    If Marlin Forum can not be accessed w/o Tapatalk, I'll miss you guys.

    Or you can keep using Marlin Forum app and just use your ID and password to login.

    The problem I'm having is I signed up with my phone (gmail) account a while back. So for some reason I'm having trouble logging on. It won't accept my log on, it's telling me wrong password . So I don't know if I need to log on with my tapatalk name/password.

    Please just hold off until we get the conversion done, then you will upgrade your current Marlin app, and use the same username and password that you currently use

    Typically that's a user error, so if you would like me to confirm your pass please send it to me through a private message.

    Ok, so I tried tapatalk again. This time it couldn't even find you in a search. So I downloaded your app (cool looking app, BTW) and logged on ok.
