Is it possible to enable Tapatalk on this forum? Before I carry on I'll say that I have no clue how you'd go about doing that, and if it actually involves any hassle then don't bother.  :P

It's an app for iPhone and Android that lets you browse the forum in a much more convenient way than using the phone web browser. You can post, receive PMs, do everything you can do on the normal forum. But it's much more suited to mobile phones. TGN has been Tapatalk compliant for a year or so, and I couldn't imagine going back now. So if it's easy to install, I'd love to see the Society make the switch. :) And encourage everyone to download it!

The Society is now part of the Tapatalk network. Thanks for the heads-up on this, as I didn't know it existed.

That's fantastic, thanks! Sending this from Tapatalk right now :D

For anyone else using this, you have to search for society.miskie. Well if you want to find it easily you do. :P

I searched using The Society - I ended up getting only four or so choices - look for my avatar (I couldn't find a copy of The Finger in an appropriate size, once I do I'll update it)

Ah, I searched 'Society' and got loads. That 'the' must make all the difference. :D

Regardless, all is well!

I have to say I quite like it. It automatically 'phone corrects' added websites with little intervention from me. The server install was simple - almost 100% automated. Then its a matter of making a free Tapatalk account and adding the website. I also like the way Tapatalk handles media - a web link to the videos , and a thumbnail for images. Again, great find - much appreciated.

I need to get used to this. It's so... well, smartphoney. Where's my non-working Flash? Where's the having to pinch and zoom to read stuff? Where the accidentally hitting the latest post and making that get larger when all I want to do is press Read More? It's just not sporting, I tell you! :D

Indeed.:) But it isn't often I'm accused of being 'sporting', so it works for me - So the flash videos behave now using an iOS device ? Because that would be awesome. Anyway - Tapatalk... great little US $3 investment.

I wish I had mentioned it sooner now! :D The only reason I didn't was because I assumed it would be a pain to install.

Easiest mod I've done on this forum. Took me Longer to register at the Tapatalk site.

I got quite excited when I saw that Tapatalk was available for my ancient piece of crap Symbian phone - sadly I should have read the reviews before I downloaded it because it doesn't work at all.  Another reason to upgrade.

I post on the Society using a telegraph.  A pox on these new-fangled devices!

So I went to download this for the iPad and it costs Actual Money!

Is it really worth it?  What do you get that you can't get just by using a web browser?
