After I hit “reply” in the top right, while it’s posting I can see the bar at the very bottom, like it’s hidden behind the keyboard. I’d try and snap a screen shot but I can’t post it!

Same problem here. For now I click on the ... in upper right and choose webview and then make my post with picture. It’s some extra steps but a work around for now.

I don’t love Tapatalk. I pay for it too. The interface has gotten better in the last 6 months or so. I like having all my forums in one place and the best thing about the app is the ability to post pictures straight from the phone which is not working for the Max.

I didn’t expect them to fix it over the weekend but certainly do today. We will see what kind of company they are. I guess they don’t get these phones ahead of time.
There is also issues with long posts not scrolling down. Just kind of goes under the keyboard and you can’t see what you are writing. Probably related.

Well, it’s now day 5 post XS Max release and Tapatalk hasn’t released an update/fix. This is disappointing. The interface has other serious usability flaws with the Max including running out of screen real estate when posting.

So disappointed in Tapa for not fixing this. How hard can it be? It’s obviously a display issue with the Max. I guess they kind of suck.

now this is pissing me off. ridiculous.
Everyone relax. The fix has already been issued as a beta release and I’m sure it’ll make it to final soon.

If you’re so upset by this just join the beta program.

A simple search of the Tapatalk forum or Google would of given you this information...ridiculous. It’s how I figured it out.

yeah all the other big apps had updates on launch day or on Saturday. it's only been 10 days so far, so totally acceptable.

That’s really not an acceptable answer. “Join the beta program”. Yeah, that’s it. Try out their garbage they couldn’t have ready on launch day like everyone else.

Still nothing. Going to try to get my money back and research some other forum readers if they are available.

Imagine if the XS Max was released and you couldn’t post pictures with the Facebook app or your replies got cut off by the keyboard? Maybe Facebook will buy Tapatalk.
