    I've had this problem since last night. I believe the RD team are aware of the problem and are working to correct it as quickly as possible :)

    Noooooooooo how shall I now feed my addiction on the go? :(
    On a more serious note, are you looking into getting it back online, another solution or just not gonna bother with it (I know it has caused issues before)?

    RD is working fine on my Android tablet but my iPhone screen (4S, not 5) is a bit small - so if you're using a tablet, give it a go. :)

    Use the browser on your phone buddy, that way you get to see all of RD's news and other content :)

    Rather than just the forum on Tapatalk :)

    But I want just the forum on my phone, as well as notifications when threads I follow have new posts, and in a readable format on my iPhone 4. Forums on that screen is completely unreadable unless I'm sitting down holding my phone completely still 20cm from my nose, at which point I could just use a computer instead :p
    But that's beside the point, I'm just asking if it's coming back or not. :)

    I was using Tapatalk on my phone a lot Kjell, so I understand what you mean.

    We will try to make it come back, but it causes issues and apparently has to do specifically with us (mods we use?, our server config?) so I can't really tell...

    Thanks for the update Xose, I understand that the plugin can (and have) cause issues and I see it as a bonus rather than something the site MUST have. Keep up the great work, I recently became a premium member because I wanna show my support to the awesome work all of you staff are doing here! :)

    It would work fine on my tablet if I could copy/past on it.

    Thanks mate.

    I actually used it a lot, I don't have a tablet and on my smartfone its a bit painful to browse now, but better than not browsing at all :D

    Tell me about it, I bought it on Android and iOS. But the issues with Tapatalk were pretty bad so it's been turned off for good reasons, believe me. :)

    So, any chance tapatalk will make a reappearance anytime soon? I've got a Samsung galaxy s3 now so browsing the forum with my phone is doable but tapatalk is so much better and I miss it deeply :(

    I think Bram mentioned that the forum will be getting upgraded with regards to phone use at some point, so maybe we won't need tapatalk. No idea what that entails though :p

    Jep next version of the forums will be fully responsive and compatible with phones, tables and other mobile devices.

    Not sure if we roll it out to all or that we keep this a premium member feature as its pretty neat.
