    Anybody think the new version sucks?

    Tried to find feedback option in app but don't see one.

    I do not like the way it lists unread posts now. The information is all over the screen and sometimes pictures from the thread are behind the text.

    Yeah, I don't like it either. Maybe I'll get used to looking for the thread title on the right, but the display takes up way too much room for each thread.

    I realize it takes time to learn something new. And you can't please everybody. But some things are not that subjective.

    1. I would imagine the new bigger screens on smartphones would be an opportunity to make things easier to read (bigger font). Yet they made it smaller!

    2. What is the purpose of the blue heading bars? They take up space with little to no content.

    3. Thread titles on the right. Just doesn't seem intuitive. Especially when you consider most people are right handed and will be covering the text with their finger while scrolling whether using the phone one or two handed (I do both).

    Those are pretty clear cut IMO.

    Also the giant header with mtbr and a picture that takes up a ton of room. I'm using a Note 3 and the wasted space is silly.

    Every Tapatalk revision is worse then the previous. This one takes the cake. Completely ruined the program. Is anyone aware of an alternate app?

    My Lumia Tapatalk is complaining quite often html error and stops stacking next pack of data when scrolling forward, worst is unread.

    Latest Android Tapatalk just silently stops reading next pages. It reads just some amount of days in timeline, like 4 hours. This seems to be MTBR forum problem, other forum doesn't behave lake that.

    I almost learned to use latest Android version...

    I agree it's been getting worse with each update. Thanks for the heads up. I'll steer clear of the latest update.

    How does one send feedback to Tapatalk?

    Any way to revert to old version?

    I've been irritated with Tapatalk since they restricted the ability to post photos to registered users. I paid for the premium version of the app before that, and they effectively crippled a purchased product. I don't see any reason to give them any of my identity information, so I still haven't created a Tapatalk account. If there was a viable alternative, I'd go with it, but it looks like they're really the only option when it comes to forum readers.

    I don't get any errors such as the one above. My issues are with the format and sometimes it doesn't display my posts. Also notifications are hit or miss.

    And another:


    Again when scrolling down unread topics, makes following of the forum updates practically unusable. Likely not only client problem as Android versions, both old and new, are behaving much the same but without error dialog. Just silently stopping to get new topics.

    I am not liking the new version as used on my iPhone and ipad, I can't navigate the forum, I get stuck in the topics I'm subscribed to and can't get out unless I fumble around, it's not intuitive.

    Also it never really updates to the last viewed post. I always get something at least a page back.

    It's so awful beyond comprehension.

    I reverted to the old Tapatalk Pro I bought years ago. It's the best thing I have.

    There are threads in the Tapatalk forums with people ranting and begging for them to revert it. Go register there and complain. Maybe they'll listen??

    What I don't get us why there isn't more competition in forum reading apps. It's desperately needed.

    I too got suckered into the recent "upgrade." What a mistake.

    MTBR should be aware that this horrible program is reducing participation on this site:

    1 Older version works great
    2 Delete all email subscriptions to threads, why not?
    3 "Upgrade" to the current, unusable version of tapatalk
    4 Find it absolutely unusable; delete it from every device
    5 Wonder what's being talked about on those threads you can't really be bothered to locate and subscribe to again
    6 Spend more time on other sites that have sufficient speed to not need an app to browse forum

    The main problem, of course, is the slowness of this site, not tapatalk. I wouldn't need the app if the site ran at speeds like the other forums I happily browse without tapatalk.

    I've been using Forum Fiend from the Google play store with success. It is based on the older tapatalk software.

    You can torrent an older version and install it directly from your phone. Thats what I did.
