I was checking out the XLF stats on Tapatalk and XLF is ranked #2 in popularity in the Harley-Davidson category behind The Doof Clenas Motorcycle Collective.

Come on guys and gals this just won't do!

We need to be #1!!!!!

You need a smart phone and then install Tapatalk and login to the forum from it.

Sorry Bert, can't stand smart phones. I don't even like the dumb ones.

I must be cheap, but I dont see the point in paying 3 dollars for the app when I can just open the forum in the browser on my phone.

Just a regular phone here. Don't want a phone that's smarter than me. :)

IMHO this is clearly the best forum! Besides, when did it become a contest?
They may have more hits but we have great content. Probably 'cause we are all out riding while they are sitting around tapping. :laugh

Edit: looks like it is no longer there. Might check back in awhile to see if it comes back.

If you download an app called getjar, you can get Tapatalk for free there.

Get the app, open it and search Tapatalk. That is on Android. Not sure about ios.

Downloaded and installed a while ago. Though I say popularity ratings based on Tapatalk are biased!! I know way too many people who hate smart phones..

To be honest, I'm surprised we're even number 2 given the recent problems with connecting to XLF through tapatalk....

I use windows mobile OS on my phone, so I cant get tapatalk for my device..

So, we are numbher 2 in some category that has nothing to do with what this place is all about? We are #2 in electronic devices? Sorry Bert. I'm lucky to have a computer, never mind a phone that thinks it's smarter than I am.

I'm a techie and a geek. Don't really care about connecting to XLFORUM while away from a PC.

Sorry Bert. My smart phone is an amazing thing but the small screen frustrates me to no end. So I use the browser only when I have to...like when I get lost:doh

I find it easier to navigate and post from my phone than from a PC at this point.

The one time a PC is nice us when you want to see details on a photo.

Think of the smart phone as a tiny portable computer always keeping you connected to the Internet , kinda handy to have anywhere you go, barely use a PC anymore...


sadly I'm not paying for the Tapa talk feature to hook to the XLF when I can do it for FREE by using my browser!! Sorry Bert! :banana

I had a good laugh when I went over to the Doof Clenas website. The origin of the name and stuff is pretty funny.

If you have an iphone that is jailbroke, you can get tapatalk through installous for free. Also if you have android you can get it for free at 4shared.com, just search tapatalk .apk. .apk files are for android you can download without having to root your droid.

what makes tapatalk any better/easier than looking at the forum with my phones browser?

I have a new iPhone while the browser ver of the forum looks like the computer one I like tap talk because you see more posts per page and it loads much much faster! No more scrolling all over to look at stuff u gotta try it out to see when I first got my phone I was a sceptic at first!

Plus a added bonus is that tap talk actually sends very little data so if u need to look something up on the road or a friends house u can do that quickly and without taxing your data plan (if u have one)

On my PC now, but using Tap A Talk a lot. It's great!

Yeah, could someone learn my ass this as well? What's the benefit?

The forum is just fine on my Droid Bionic, either in the native browser or Firefox.

It might be number 1 if you had not had that post months ago about disabling tap a talk. I have not tried since then.

Metro PCS is only $45 mo for unlimited everthing but that's per phone so if you have more than 2 phones on a family plan it could get higher than your old bill (my parents like it). I currently have AT&T but only because I need to be on that provider for the company discount (20% off entire bill) and to be able to connect to secure company server on my phone. :geek

I had a big long-winded post typed, but I'll spare everyone...

I use tapatalk when I use my phone to surf the forum. Which isn't often.

I dislike tapatalk in general because it doesn't allow me to use the forum like I'm used to and doesn't have some of the little features I use. Another reason to dislike it, it's responsible for the stupid vigilinks that I utterly despise.

Tapatalk does a decent job of formatting the page for a mobile device. I suspect so would a well written (free) mobile CSS stylesheet. :rolleyes:

And some may find this hard to believe, but I don't give a crap what device you use to post to the forum.

I have nothing against smart phones, nor tapatalk. I will download it and log on just to give the count a boost, but I doubt I will continue to use it. My browser works just fine on all the forums I frequent.

Besides, aside from a bit of an ego boost I don't know what the benefit would be except maybe selling more tapatalk apps ... in which case we are playing right into their marketing hands.
