Default Is tapatalk worth it for this forum?

I've just moved from an I530 Nextel to an HTC inspire Droid phone so you can imagine the learning curve is pretty huge. This is the only way I can get any sort of internet service at my new place. I would like a simple way of posting pics on this forum. Does tapatalk work, or is there another option for me besides tethering to a laptop and using Photobucket or tinypic?

I love tapatalk. Try the free version and see if you like it.

Its good stuff, you should buy it.
When you do, make sure you go to settings and remove the tapatalk sig that's displayed by default settings.

It's like $3, not an arm and a leg. I think it's worth it. It's great because you can post pics from your phone onto the site without hosting them (photobucket, tinypic) first. Plus it's a lot easier to navigate than the website via phone web browser.

Bought the app and two things 1. It said this site's tapatalk was too old of a version.
2. When it started to load it locked up and just kept trying to communicate with the site.

Also, I tried the free version and it wasn't supported at all.

I assume this is a site issue and not the app or phone.

Update. Free version still junk, 2.99 version lets me access approx half of the site but it is the main parts, so I'm totally happy. I can however access posts in the other parts (like this website part) providing I have already previously posted on them. Maybe a future update will allow browsing in all parts of the forum.

Not to turn this into an iPhone vs droid thread, but I have Tapatalk on my iPhone and haven't used an actual web browser in several months. I only use safari to leave itrader.

I also haven't had an issue not being able to see something on the site. I do have issues with YouTube links though, it loads up a white screen then stops. I have to go to my YouTube app to search for and find the video.
