iPhone App recommendation

So I just hit the site in the browser on my iPhone, and was notified via popup about an app that could be used to view the site instead. I paid for and downloaded the app, Tapatalk, only find that the forum isn't listed there. Further research here shows that AutoGuide is the app that I should have bought. Is there a reason why users are directed to the wrong app when hitting the site via mobile app, or am I missing something? Thanks!

Re: iPhone App recommendation

Don't know, it never happened to me. I was never redirected to the app store from this site on my iPhone. I downloaded AutoGuide without any reference other then its the logo at the bottom of all the pages here.

Re: iPhone App recommendation

most likely paid advertising. Does "TapATalk" load this forum?

Re: iPhone App recommendation

The autoforums folks don't keep the moderators updated on changes very well so I have nothing official on this. I did look into Tapatalk and it apears to be legitimate. Site owners register with tapatalk for free and users buy their app. Once you have a tapatalk account on your phone you have access to all the tapatalk registered forums on the net including facebook. This is different than the Autoguide app that lists all their forums, you have to use the app and search.

I'll ask for more info on it but don't expect to hear from anyone till at least Tuesday. The AF folks are a M-F 8-5 type!

Re: iPhone App recommendation

Same thing happened to me last week. I purchased Tapatalk and found it is not supported.

Re: iPhone App recommendation

Does Tapatalk allow you to access the Hot Rodders or HAMB forums? Just curious because Autoguide does not.

Re: iPhone App recommendation

I just found the H.A.M.B. on Tapatalk. You must search using the periods between letters.
Tapatalk wont work here; PT.com, Lateral G. The Autoforums app is obviously a name branded version of Tapatalk but is Autoforums only. Now PT.com has their own app.
It seems we are taking a step backwards having a specific app for every forum. It would be better to have a mobile version of a forum viewable in a regular browser. Multiple forum apps are not progress in my opinion. I feel we are being restricted & controlled.

Re: iPhone App recommendation

Tapatalk works with other software the site uses to increase revenue. The AutoGuide app only works on autoguide (autoforum sites) Tapatalk will work with any forum site willing to install it and it's free to the site owner. That seems like a bonus feature to someone like David who visits sites owned by many different factions. It's just a matter of site owners opting in!

Re: iPhone App recommendation

Dennis - Thanks for the update. I look forward to seeing what they say. I only frequent this site and nastyz28.com, and neither are listed in the directory within Tapatalk. It's unfortunate you have to buy the app *before* you can see what forums are listed.

[rant]What pisses me off though, is having bought it only to find camaros.net isn't listed. Not that $2.99 is a big deal, but I don't feel like shelling out another $2.99 to get what was supposedly supported in the first place. [/rant]
