Tapatalk problems / questions thread

Postby seeking perspective » Thu Feb 19, 2015 9:47 am

Tapatalk hasn't been working right on either my tablet or my phone (both Android devices) since last night. It will load the trending topics, but it gets stuck when I try to see the list of unread topics, topics I participated in, or messages. When I click on a topic under the trending topics list, it won't load the thread at all, either. In other words, Tapatalk is pretty much useless to me at the moment. :)

Has anyone else had difficulty with this, or is it just me?

I've had trouble with it for about a week. Duplicate entries listed for TMB, can't find new posts, on and on.

Not just you. :D

I'm always relieved when it isn't just me. Because quite often, it is. :)

I went into my app manager and cleared the cache. It seems to have worked.

Anyone else having troubles with Tapatalk?

I am glad to hear that I am not the only one in the same boat. I love this app on my iPad. I have found that turning the iPad off every-once in awhile helps not only TapTalk but all other similar type of programs. They seemed to clear up their other glitches. (Added) Now how can we get rid of the ads especially the one for the war game with the scantily clad model.

I use the Tapatalk Pro app. I don't see any ads, it was worth the price. I also haven't had issues like these, and the app layout hasn't changed. I recently changed phones and loaded the app. I quickly realized I had the wrong version and reloaded Pro!

Hello, I have installed Tapatalk on my iPhone5 and I would like to set a password so that if the app on the phone is opened a password is needed for this app to run.
Is there anything like this available? I do not desire to "jailbrake" the phone.

If I log off of TMB inside Tapatalk the TMB forum still shows each time Tapatalk is opened. My only other option is logging off of Tapatalk, the downside for this is it is a hassle to log back in, typing my full email and password. My phone is sometimes in the hands of others, children etc.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks

The tapatalk settings allow for "auto lock" with a PIN necessary to open the app. That should give you the privacy you're looking for

This recent version is worse than the Christmas update.

My main issue is that when I select a thread to read, it will always jump to the last post in that thread. The options in the settings are: Read Order: "Latest Post, First Unread, Oldest Post, Always Ask Me". Previously I had it set to "First Unread" so I could pick up a thread where I had last read it. NOW (even with that setting the same) it will always jump to the last post in the thread and it is a PAIN to try scrolling back and try finding where I had last read. I changed that setting to "Always Ask" and it will offer me the options, but regardless of which one I choose, it jumps to the last post.

So now I am stuck at only being able to read the forums at home on my laptop. :evil: :evil:

I went to their support page and registered for an account. It was created, but they have never verified it (over 2 weeks now) so I can not post to any thread in their forum.

So… I left a VERY critical review (and 1 star) on the iTunes App Store. It's about all there is I can do.

(For Android users)<br />
Download the pre-update version: <br />
http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/tapatalk-inc/tapatalk/tapatalk-4-9-5-apk/<br />
<br />
You'll have to uninstall your current version before installing the older version. After that you'll have to sign in again but that's it.<br />
<br />
Ohh, and make sure you disable automatic updates in the play store or it will just get updated again.<br/>
I was having trouble too. I did this, and haven't had anymore problems. Good luck. It's pretty easy to do.

Digging through some of my old backups, I found a copy of 3.1.1 TapaTalk. This was the version just prior to the Christmas update.

I successfully re-installed it to my iPad and it is now useable again!!!!!

If anyone using a Mac would like a copy, it would be legal for me to send it to you. (I checked). This is the free-ware version, not the premium version.

I will also include a link to instructions on how to get it into your app library.

PM me.

For some reason Tapatalk is not working for this site only . I can only see what I have scribed to. But no unread or tending but it works on a mother site.

Anyone having issues?

That happens to me sometimes. Often it coincides with a very short term board problem, like you can't use the active topics button or search feature. Usually it resolves it self in a a short time.

Tapatalk, TMB, or me?

Postby seeking perspective » Sun Aug 02, 2015 7:54 pm

Is anyone else having trouble accessing TMB from Tapatalk? On both my phone and my tablet, it doesn't load at all for me. Other forums come up with no problem. I've been having intermittent problems on my laptop as well, where I can see the index but nothing that is search-based (like unread posts or my posts).

I'm wondering if it's a TMB problem, something wi th Tapatalk, or even something related to my home network.

I noticed it also. I went into safari on my iPad yesterday and had to type in a code word. It was. Like the main server for TMB was not talking with Taptalk and was putting on an extra layer of security. It seems to be working now.

Twit, your mention of security made me wonder if I could try to sign out of my account on Tapatalk and then try to sign back in. It worked on both my devices. Thank you.

I've been having the same issues. I tries clearing cache. It would work on some views (like Participated but not Timeline). Last night, what little came up looked like the DB was missing a few years of end recent posts.

A removal of the forum and reading it seems to have fixed it -- at least for now.

The boards and Tapatalk seem to be running into several issues lately. Our apologies! We will see if anything can be done to make things go more smoothly. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience!! :D :D
