Title: TapaTalk App Removal
Post by: Abarthisti on July 02, 2013, 03:51:33 pm
Hello Everyone,

Moving forward, Tapatalk will no longer be available on Abarth Forum. AutoGuide 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: http://www.autoguide.com/mobile/ (http://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.

What a shame.   Why mess with something that works very well?  Tapatalk is great with the forums I'm interested in all in one place.

It's probably for commercial reasons the Auto Guide app has adverts.  Now the new owner has bought the forum, they need a return on their investment.

Tapatalk doesn't have ads, so they aren't making money out of us.  I guess that's capitalism.  If it keeps the forum going I guess it's still a positive :/

Hey guys,

I'm very sorry about any inconvenience this is causing to users as this was not our intent. We have decided to use the AutoGuide app as our app for the forum because we have full control over the app. when we would have an issue with the TapaTalk app we would have to wait until the issue was resolved by TT, which could take a while.  In the future we will be able to resolve issues faster.

- dm, community support

I think it's windows phone. But that's a guess

Now that Tapatalk has been disabled I went to check out Autoguide for ios.

Tapatalk gets about 4 stars in the reviews ( out of 5) Autoguide scrapes through with one and nobody has a good word to say about it.

Doesn't look like progress to me and I for one don't plan on installing it.

Autoguide stopped working a few weeks after the switch.  I've reported it a couple of times to the owners but they don't seem interested and haven't responded.  This is a browser only forum for now.

Have to admit, only check this forum when I have my laptop on, check all the others on tapatalk several times through the day. To small for my phone. Seemed fine on the tapatalk for the user. Autoguide' not working.

Ahh that explains why I couldn't find it. I read somewhere it was on Tapatalk but couldn't find it for love nor money.

Poor show indeed. Autoguide is rubbish in comparison.

All members need to understand this app and the decision to remove tappatalk have nothing to do with the forum staff this was a decision made by the website owners :(

We have made numerous attempts at getting a response from them much to no avail :(

I've dealt with Autoguide before and they are pretty useless. Big mistake selling the forum to them.

Totally understand this - but surely the new owners want people to use the forum more, so shouldn't they go with an App that people can use...?! Do they know that the App isn't working at all? Jon

Mine Also pops up saying there is a tappatalk app when i load it up! :s

Surely the owners want us to be happy users and not leave the forum. I love this forum, the finess and matureity of it as well as the buzz. But nothing really to keep all involved. Events page has never worked since ive joined.

Do they have any plans for the forum or just leave it and see??
