Default I-phone access to the forum...

I don't have an I-phone, but thought this might be of use to those who are addicted. (Found the link mentioned on MySwag)

It's here: http://www.tapatalk.com/
and apparently simple to install on a forum: http://www.tapatalk.com/en/plugin
There is a free and paid version for the iPhone. Free is read only, no posting, paid is full featured.

I understand it is compatible with v-bulletin based forums like ORS, and is at no cost to the admin.

Barry, we will take a look at tapatalk. At first blush it looks like a winner.

We have an i-Pod touch, I can access ORS but I haven't tried logging in and posting from it. I'll have to give it a try and see what happens...will report later.

I just got a CrackBerry Tour this weekend and I can view the site. I didn't try to post either. Is it safe to login on the Crackberry with my admin password? I'd hate to get it stolen.

The plugin/addon allows the iPhone app to just pull down forum post data without all the other forum 'stuff', thus more efficient and downloading less data.

I use this app from time to time and can't say overall I'm all that happy with it. For example it only seems to show the last 20 unread posts. Which means I have to trawl through sub-forum by sub-forum to see if I've missed anything.

Safari on iPhone & iPod Touch works just fine for me

Not that I'm likely to get an I-phone Hoadie, but are you using the free or paid version?

After Reading what the app is about, the point is moot, but I am posting this from the i-pod touch.
