    Tapatalk seems to be the quickest and most reliable. RSS I never tried. Emails are ok. My problem is I don't like Tapatalk anymore.

    Is there any other ways to keep track of forums ?

    Load the mobile page click forums then click new posts. No 3rd party app needed

    Why don’t you like Tapatalk?

    Tapatalk stopped being useful a few years ago when they ruined the app and polluted it with ads. Most forums I use have removed support for Tapatalk as its so crap & instead spent time fully optimising for mobile devices. Any forum should allow you to subscribe & customise your notifications for topics/threads that interest you.

    I use the pro version now, no adverts. I think it’s worth the couple of pounds.

    I see more people making multiple duplicate replies on Tapatalk.

    I prefer using the regular internet site for posting on MR. I do use an ad blocker.

    Don’t think it has got anything to do with the app. Doesn’t happen to me at all.

    Sorry but have seen multiple dupes using Tapatalk. The posters would come back and apologize and confirm that were user of this software. Most said they got no response when replying to a thread so they hit the send button again and again resulting in dupe posts. I find using the full site on my iPad is a much richer experience but it is up to each user.

    Guess I'm overlooking better ways of doing this, but I've always just used Safari and have been happy. I have all the forums I follow in a Favorites folder and can easily select the one I want to read or contribute to. Has always worked for me.

    But I'm open to learning. What am I missing by doing it this way?
