    Gotta put this out there. I'm absolutely loving the mobile version of this site. The ui is super slick and works well.

    Kudos to the boys and girls who have made this forum happen.

    Thanks for the feedback, it's always good to hear, both good and bad. After all, that's how we improve.

    Mobile functionality was a big factor in deciding on a platform for this, so it's good to hear it's working out.

    All that needs doing now is getting the word out, and loads more tweaks, I'm sure.

    Indeed. I was fortunate to receive an email inviting me to join up.

    What are the chances of advertising this forum on GS?

    Might also be a good idea to enable the forum for Tapatalk users.

    We probably can't advertise this on Gunsite, not right now I don't think, but I'm sure it'll naturally migrate over there through conversation :)

    Saying that, there are loads of clubs and Facebook groups and pages that we can share this with.

    If everyone here shares it somewhere, the word will get out quite quickly. ;)

    I'll look into getting Tapatalk setup, good suggestion, thanks.

    I looked into Tapatalk and tried to install it, but it came up with an error. Investigating things, it seems it best to avoid it and people seem to suggest the mobile platform that this site software provides has features that are lost in Tapatalk, amongst other things. I've left it for now, but if it's really missed, I'll look at it again.

    I've not used Tapatalk myself, so I might be missing the difference between it's functionality and this sites and it's advantages.

    Agreed that this mobile ui is much better than most, if not all, platforms out there.

    The thing with Tapatalk is more for people who are on multiple forums. It's easier to combine all forum browsing and alerts into one app.

    Not serious for now though.

    Ok, that makes sense.
