It should have an option to auto update the list of subscriptions or not.
Just wished to re-raise the point.

Its torturous/unusable over the pathetic airtel 2G (even the 1.3.13), whereas my tapatalk subscribed forums are perfectly usable - even in a train moving at 80-90 kph.

I mean, its a great way to get more usage (readers / posts) - why not try it out?

@phamilyman, it works perfectly well in my Docomo 2G, maybe you should try a different operator and see the results.

Perfect, so let us all ditch our respective operators just so that one app can work!

It illustrates a failing of the setup - plain and simple. Tapatalk works perfectly even with XDA sized forums. I can't change my operator for TBHP on the go. Not yet

tapatapatap is very new to me (hope you pardon my ignorance) , so I just googled it and found that it is something (a forum app ?) that users like you enjoy and PAID for it because without paying for it, you cannot reply to any posts (that's what i read) and hence asking for this forum to download their yabadabadoo (plugin). Again I am not smart, hence . At least Team-BHP is FREE so far, no charges for viewing or posting, right ? No offence meant sir, just my understanding, you are free to correct.

No one asked you to change your operator for one app, I only suggested you to try with another operator's 2g services because of my experiences. Why this Kolaveri on me ?

Pardon me Sir, but tapatalk is totally free. You can pay to get rid of the ads.

But the Android Market has got only the paid app. 164.56 rs. I just checked. Hope this is the app you all are talking about. And different themes cost the same. Many other car ownership forums like Cadillac, Mercedes and jalopnik have their own apps which are free. Paying for tapatalk from which none of the money goes to tbhp is probably not worth it especially as a bunch of people want support for that.
Yes the images tend to take longer than usual to load and sometimes dont load at all. For those pages where i want to view the images i open them in browser and that works flawlessly.

An oxymoron in today's world. If there are going to be annoying ads occupying my small screen (even a 7 inch tab), it is not worth it.

Esteem lover too:

Ads are found in the Forum Runner based Team BHP app too.

What I meant is that the Tapatalk based XDA app comes in free as well as paid versions.

Ah, it was my frustration on this topic coupled with your irrelevant suggestion (since my 2G works quite acceptably otherwise). I have used the free version of tapatalk in the past and you could do everything but with ads - don't know what's there in the current ad supported version. And you have missed the basic point - We are NOT asking mods to shut down the Forum Runner support - but open up a new avenue. And FWIW sirjee, as for ads/paid apps, TBHP would have paid a decent amount to Forum Runner to license their application and skin it for TBHP. So someone always pays. TANSTAAFL anyways.I don't want them to waste it either.

Sir, someone has to pay for someone's hard work - the developers, your or mine! That aside, you can always block these ads *wink*

For normal lcd screens users can opt for the current one. Im providing an attachment with my battery usage.

I second this. But it may not be an easy job like in the Mobile website. If the theme is dark, it would be great.

After so many days i think this is the first post supporting my comment. Many users dont realise that but the black theme will actually be beneficial for everyone using the AMOLED displays that use most energy when displaying white. Would appreciate it all the more even if the editing window could be made all black and text only white.

I used to enable the reverse contrast option from Accesibility in the settings menu. But after updating to ICS its gone.

Overall the app works fine, however loading images is taking a lot of time.
Any one facing similar issues?

HJD & Parthasarathig,

Try going to Settings > Remote Thumbnailer [enable]

See if that makes a difference.
