Mobile App Change Coming Soon-ish

Some of you may be seeing a slidedown notice for tapatalk (a mobile app). In the next week or so we are going to be changing our app. Please ignore the tapatalk notice for now but in a few days you should see a prompt to install our new app which is based on the tapatalk platform.

We're making this change because we're just not satisfied with the current app; lots of folks have had trouble and we believe this will be an improvement.

Will this be a custom tapatalk app? Or an interface on the server side that talks to regular tapatalk?

Anyone else not like the format of the new app? It just doesn't seem intuitive to me and the layout hurts my eyes. Wish I wouldn't have updated to the new app.

Hmm, feel a bit lost at the moment but trust in time I will find my way. This definitely is different.

This is how it appears on an iPad.

Mobile App Change Coming Soon-ish

So the updated app is only for iOS so far? Searching the Google Play store only shows the SocialKnowledge version, but the iPad prompted me for the tapatalk thing today.

It is quite different but I'll give it a bit before I decide what I think about it. Still doesn't display avatars properly, but at least it has a usable editing interface after saving a post.

Mobile App Change Coming Soon-ish

In the iOS app, the display of avatar images seems to be inconsistent from page to page of the ui. E.g. My avatar and some others show on the People page but not on this page.

Also, when looking at the "People" page, selecting someone to view their profile shows an entry for their posts, and it seems like clicking this is supposed to take you to their posts. Instead it just says there are zero posts to display, which seems to be a bug.

iPad 2 running iOS 7.

Thank you. I suppose that would take a while to get used to that. Doesn't look horrible to me but definitely different. I haven't received the note to change yet.

If you touch the 3 bars in the upper left a menu comes in on the left sidebar. Once you make a selection, it vanishes again. I assume that replaces the tabs at the bottom as I haven't found a way to put them back. For me, the rusty red bar at the top seems to draw my attention to it, but suspect that is only because it is prominent and different, expect it will become less of a distraction in time. The current threads are called timeline now. Click image for larger version

ID:	201901Not sure what happened to the avatars. Was used to the familiar "faces" but now everyone seems to be a smiling blockhead with X O eyes.... A green dot on the avatar's chin indicates that person is online as in the past.

I did find that changing the font size in the settings table in the side bar did help the readability for me. Age? 😄

Maybe the avatars will come back in a future update. If so, it would also be on my wish list that they be larger as they used to be.
