When i first opened the forum my iPhone said this forum works with an app called 'tapatalk' - £1.79. Has anybody tried this app? I am tempted to buy as it looks like it will make reading the forum much easier on my phone


Edit: there is a free 'view only' version, and it looks very good, makes viewing the forum from iPhone very easy

Hi Owen,

I was wondering who would be the first to notice that :)

There's an app for iPhone (from the app store thingy I assume)

Andy



I coughed up the £1.79 to view message board and it works well, easier than viewing through iphone safari. It will take a little while to find my way around the forums but its good to have the option

Just tried it again on my (non-i) phone and it's not as messed up, loads better than this morning... just a bit squished. I think the font is bigger than it used to be.

Anyway - all good here. Sterling work chaps and chappesses. :clap:

Got to agree, it's looking fantastic, left a msg on the news page too, does that mean various members/ex members of the WH will grace the live chat room? :bounce:

There's no reason why they couldn't if they wanted - apart from the fact that AFAIK only Ginger has an account at the moment.

Waaah. I've only just recovered from the journey home from the Ginger BDay Gig (flight at 7 a.m. cancelled due to it surprisingly being wintertime, had to queue in lovely Heathrow T5 for 5.5 hrs after 3 hrs sleep to be told that I could maybe get home the next day... eventually managed to get another flight but arrived in Frankfurt 12 hrs later and a few hundred quid poorer than intended - could I have Ginger's Birthday changed to 17th of June please?), and now I return here for the first time in weeks and there's a new forum to get used to. I'm too old for all that.

Ah well, it does have style. Well done!

I think it looks great, though it's not so friendly to my very limited works internet access! (I don't have proper access so nothing has pictures - some places are OK, some not!)

How big (in pixels) are we allowed the signatures to be now?

Aye, my phone doesn't like this one.

Time for a new phone, I guess. :D

There's a size guide here.

I really like the new 'View unread posts' feature - saves a lot of time! But could a link to this feature be put on all pages so I don't have to keep returning to the Board Index page? :eh:

It's something we can look into. In the meantime, if you bookmark this link:

http://www.thewildhearts.com/board/search.php?search_id=unreadposts

and stick it on your toolbar somewhere, it'll do the same thing.

Working on it... :hmmm:

Meanwhile, you have the option to bookmark it as Ean said earlier...

OK, I've added those links to all of the forum list pages, and the topic view page, so you can get back to your unread post from anywhere in the forum view.

That do? :)
