Tapatalk App support will be discontinued
« on: June 22, 2013, 07:49:40 AM »
Hello Everyone,

Moving forward, Tapatalk will no longer be available on ramchargercentral.com this coming Monday.  AutoGuide.com has made available for your download the AutoGuide App, available to Apple and Android Phones and Tablets. It’s available as a free or paid version. You can find it by searching “AutoGuide” in the app store or by clicking here:www.autoguide.com/mobile/

The functionality of the free vs. paid app is the same; however, the major difference between the two is the presence of the advertisements, or absence thereof, respectively.

For users who access the forum using a mobile browser, you will not be prompted to download the app every time you access the forum. The prompt is cookie-based and will only happen once every 30 days, unless you delete all the cookies off your mobile device or use the browser’s incognito mode.

    Why discontinue tapatalk? Sounds like a money grab to me. No more support for the free and advertisement free app. But you can get our app for free with nonstop annoying advertising or pay for no advertising! You already stated the only diff between payed and free is the advertising!

    What about those of us that payed for membership to this site! We should get this mobile app of yours for free (the add free version).

    Had to vent. With my messed up leg spend most of my time in a recliner and 90% of my time on the site through tapatalk on my phone.

    It is a money grab and just another way Vertical Scope is showing how stupid they are.  This has gone over like a lead balloon on several sites, including Pirate and I don't expect it will make anyone happy.  Pissing off the people who out bread on your table is never a good way to do business and yet VS does it repeatedly.  Maybe they should take a look at what happened when Microsoft thought they could get away with anything and still keep their customers.  Forums are not hard or expensive to start up so it's not like these places are irreplaceable.

    I ONLY get on this site with tapatalk. I don't know if I will keep visiting without it.
    The "experts" are great at telling you what you can't do. Don't let someone else's opinion be your limiting factor.

    It's a very user friendly FREE mobile app. that lets us view a simplified version of RCC on our small screen mobile devices (cell phones) and there are no annoying advertising popups or advertising at all.

    i use tapatalk quite often myself.  no way in hell i'm installing your app.  you've converted every free inch of space on this site into an ad and installed text links to boot - i sure as hell am not going to pay to keep from looking at them or give you the satisfaction of eating up my mobile bandwidth with a ton more ads for free.

    how much can tapatalk cost?  my guess is not that much.

    between the massive hike in vendor fees and crap like this i'm beginning to wonder if you bozos really want this site to continue to thrive.....

    It isn't thriving now. The amount of posts have dropped I believe. There doesn't seem to be near as much activity as there was a year ago.

    I downloaded it to see what it was like and if it had ads. I was a frequent user of tapatalk but on the new auto guide or what ever i only saw one ad and it was when i was finding the site other wise i havent seen one ad on the app i have only been using it for 10 min or so. so i could be mistaken and there could be a bunch more.

    I have to regularly clear cookies on my phone, my kid plays games, and android apps keep self starting leaving a massive cookie history, it states that you will have no problems and the program will be easy to use if you don't clear your cookies, guess that is a problem for me. I don't want to have to do an email verification every time I try to long in because of having to keep my phone clean.

    Hey Guys,

    We're very sorry about any inconvenience this has caused.  We have decided to remove TapaTalk across our network to provide a better service to our members. Int he past we found troubleshooting issues on the TT app very slow leaving our mobile members frustrated.  With the AG app we have full control over issues and can quickly resolve them. As mentioned before there are two versions of the app available for download, free and paid. Personally I use the PetGuide app free version (IPhone) to access sites as a personal user and I do not find the ads very bad. I get one per page.

    This site was one of the reason I PAID for tapatalk, guess that was a waste.
    What good does it do to protect the forests from tire prints if you are just going to replace them with septic tanks?

    When you need to use tapatalk go to http://bombedcummins.com it is basically RCC members so all the knowledge is there too.
