Now we need some themes to get rid of that hideous orange in both the new apps.

I was concerned about uploading screenshots too after I saw your screenshots but mine has the icons as before as you see in my screenshot below. The one thing I like better from the original version is the themes. I prefer light text on dark backgrounds. For whatever reason I find it easier on my eyes hence making it easier to read.

But I'm sure I'm in the minority on that. So far though I do like the new version quite a bit. It feels easier to navigate to different areas of the forums

Before & After

Thumb resize. Thumb resize.

One thing though, modifying the post on the new version didn't seem to allow me to add a pic. I had to go to the old version to upload the two pics. That is something I don't like.

Note the lack of any image upload icon in the new version.

Thumb resize. Thumb resize.

I have image upload icons if I reply or post a new thread; they're absent if I go back and modify the post. That's what I am talking about.

Yeah, my experience is the same: no image, or anything other than the keyboard, when editing a post. And they need to figure out if they want the images attached or embedded. Both is superfluous. Or give us the option for one or the other (or both, if you're into that sort of thing).

Also, regarding push notifications, the in-app settings for those don't appear to work, or so I've found. I originally (default) had notifications selected (aka "ON") for both PMs and Subscribed topics and was getting way too many so I unselected them for subscriptions. Shortly after that, nothing changed; I was still getting them for everything. I then turned them off completely in-app and, shortly after that, nothing continued to change; still getting them. I had to turn them off in the Settings.app to shut my phone up.

It's funny to me how a v2.0.1 can act like a v1.0...

I can't seem to find the edit signature option like there was in the original app.

I couldn't find it either but it's moot because it's disabled on this forum, or at least it was when I was using v1.

Yeah, it is disabled but i use two other forums that rely on me having a signature so people understand why my responses are short or if if i use short type. Also it let's people know i am not at a desktop environment. I never understood why macrumors never allowed for " Sent from "Device" using tapatalk or forum runner.


Thanks for the follow up response.

There are other forums!?!

Kidding.

I'm of the same opinion as you regarding using signatures to inform others that you're not on a full-fledged machine and I, too, don't understand why MR wouldn't enable this. Perhaps a trip the Site and Forum Feedback is in order.

Oh I see. I'll have to check that. My apologies, I thought you meant when you reply or create a post in general. So it's when you go back to edit a reply you already posted. Got it.

Probably the issues such as the ones stated above. Hope the next version will be better improved.

Well, looks like we paid them to let us beta test. I hope they do fix the issues soon. Maybe beta testers should get the iPad version free!

Just to keep you updated, I'm already testing a version that fixes quite a few of the above issues already and the developer is working as fast as possible to get all these resolved.

Just put Tapatalk 2 on my Appshopper wish list hoping to be notified when it returns. Any other way to be notified when it reappears in the App Store?

Not that I know of. Tapatalk is installed on the MR server to make all this work. I can't say for sure but I doubt arn is going to be installing multiple app solutions. Tapatalk is clearly the most popular.
