Phone user now forced to use Tapatalk?
« on: August 29, 2018, 01:56:45 PM »
As of this morning I click on my shortcut for the forum index page of www.multitool.org and am automatically redirected to Tapatalk. Android phone. Has anything changed to the web site to force this behaviour? I'd rather have the liberty to choose myself.

Tapatalk sucks....I don’t care what anyone says...I hate it!

It’s super buggy and still feels like it is in a Beta faze

I don't think anything has been changed. Still working fine for me on android.

Everything is ok on mobile website on Chrome on iPhone with no tapatalk installed.
No attempts at redirecting me to tapatalk, or ads trying to get me to install tapatalk.  :salute:

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

I'm accessing this on my phone right now, with no intervention or interference from Crapatalk.

Uninstall Tapatalk?
Yep, that works. Would've preferred a less extreme measure, but if they want to get it that way, they can >:D

Wow. Glad it wasn't a broad redirect.

I have posted over 99% of all my posts from the same browser on my cheap cell phone. The thought of having to use tapatalk is scary. :ahhh

Main collections: SOG, Gerber, Leatherman, Victorinox. Also lots of cheap & cheerful tools.

Don't have Tapatalk installed. Just go to the forum site,log in and surf like in a desktop.

Don't know if this helps. Maybe trying to navigate to the site, without using Tapatalk?

 :think: :think: :dunno:

That didn't work as long as Tapatalk was installed. I have now banished it from my phone. :dunno:

I still use it because of the easy image hosting...

And I do like the message overview and easy reply buttons.

I prefer the PM inbox of Tapatalk over the Forum's too TBH.

But yes, the bugs... bug me.

Buy now or regret later

Tapatalk image hosting worries me. When tapatalk goes, as it probably will eventually, the images will go, yes?

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Dedicated hosting websites seem a little less temporary than tapatalk?  :dunno:

Go into apps and check Open by Default.  You probably answered the question that talks about using TT always, instead of just once.
