Wow. This app works great on my iPad and iPhone. It takes a little noodling around to figure out the the best way to get around but I think I like this app for the forums better than doing the forums with my web browser on my computer.

The only thing I don't think we can do is post without our signatures. Is this true? Has anyone found a way to turn of signatures from tapatalk?

I did recently cut my signature way down so at least it might not annoy anyone with it's length. I decided I could remember all my past cruises with a print out of past cruises from the RCI website rather than see them here.

Posted from a real PC, not tapatalk. (obviously since my signature isn't showing)

Can you explain the concept a little for me? How can it be any easier than just having a "favorite" button for this thread? (I have an Ipad.)

Thanks.

Kathy

On your iPad using safari is easy. On an iPhone it is not easy unless a web site has a mobile enabled site.

The app eliminates all information from the cc web sit other than the forum. Tapatalk is strictly for forum communication on the fly. Everything is neatly laid out. All topics are listed in a row so no sliding the screen side to side is required. It's not likely you'll touch the wrong part if the screen and have to go back and try again.

Everything loads much more quickly since only forums are loading. There are various ways to navigate, too making it way to find what you are looking for. If you only want to pull up threads you have participated in, you can daily do that. If you only want to pull up subscribed threads, you can do that, too.

It's a clutter free quick way to respond.

I'm using it right now since I'm away from home. I can actually see the writing on the screen of my iPhone since everything isn't so tiny like it is on the website.

People can use many forums all from one app now without having to wait for individual websites to load or trying to navigate through multiple screens with hard to find navigational points.

Making it "easy" to find... Not way to find. That is a correction to my last post. There will still be more typos from an iPhone. An app won't change that. And sometimes that's the fault of the phone since it tends to think wit knows what we want to say and changes our spelling. Or just a wrong letter is tapped because the keyboard is so cramped.

Forget daily....it's "do only".

What the app needs is an edit post button. .

Oh cool. It has an edit feature. I just found it. Tap your post and options will come up. I just added this last line. You just need to play with it and you'll find all sorts of fast and easy ways to do things.

Very cool!!!!

Alas, CC doesn't work on my tapatalk. It appears with the message 'failed to connect to forum, please check with the forum administrator if this problem persists'. I hope that this is only temporary, I've only recently discovered CC and would love to be able to use it in conjunction with the app.

Fingers crossed for tomorrow...

I just got that message while attempting to connect to another cruise forum. It must be a temporary issue. Try later.

Just downloaded it through the Amazon app store. It's $2.99 well spent! LOVE it. Thanks for doing this, mods!

Thanks for that information. Doesn't seem necessary at all for my Ipad. That's the only "toy" I have (and I LOVE it).

That's what I think, too. Free apps on ipads are fun especially when there is no web equivalent. Even the free facebook app doesn't seem as good as the real thing on an ipad.

The advantage to having tapatalk on the ipad would be for forum only access with no ads. You can go directly to the threads you post in when you want to do a quick catchup. But you might miss some things you'll see at the real webpage when you have more time to browse.

Anyone know if I can make a list of subscribed threads on CC on Tapatalk? Or do I need to go through the clicking to find the RCCL forum for example each time? I'd like to set up either favorite forums (RCCL, princess, West Coast desinations, etc) and my subscribed threads that I reply to.

Thanks for any help! Katherine
