Do the DSLR forums work with the Tapatalk Android app? If not, then why? Thanks.

Out of the box, tapatalk supports the following forum software:

If DSLR wanted to support tapatalk, someone would have to develop the plugin with the tapatalk API.

If this sites creators don't want to use the tapatalk api, why don't they create their own forum app like other forums have?

Satelliteguys, for example, have a really nice forum app even though they do also use tapatalk.

I don't know. Have you tried asking Justin and/or the site admins?

This site's software (I believe it encompasses ALL of the site, not just the discussion forums) is all custom-built by Justin (and others, I presume). Implementing the API for a mobile app may be next to impossible.

What about ForumRunner's API ? What about others ?

I asked about this years ago, probably the first to ever bring it up and got the same run around. I don't cruz these forums near as much, because I hate having to pinch and zoom on my Iphone, But good news is I'll be getting my GS4 very soon. And well, I will still be stuck pinching and zooming, but at least with a big ole 5 inch screen it wont be so bad. I do think the admins need to get on the ball and innovate for a custom built app, but I am not holding my breath.
