I emailed Tapa Talk see if they have any more info. It worked for a day and it was great you sure don't know how much you miss it when you don't have it.  The funny thing is i get the notifications but when i go to respond it crashes very weird

Hello everyone still have not heard back from Jen or tapa talk. I have got the app to work for a bit then crashes have to delete app and re install usually once a day. I sure hope they get this figured out this is over 6 months of issues.

Why don't you just use your browser? It works fine for most of us.

I appreciate all your answers.  I don't understand why the mobile app isn't a priority.  Thank you for your responses and I am glad I'm not alone wishing I could still enjoy the app.

Since full functionality is available using one's browser I fail to see why the comparatively few users that refuse to use a browser should have priority.

 

I’m with broberts. I’m posting right now on my iPad via Safari, and regularly do the same on my iPhone. What advantages would an app bring?  I regularly access other sites via Safari on both of my mobile devices, not via apps. What would an app do?

We don’t refuse to use a browser. We like the app better. I prefer the way it works for forums. I am using my browser on an iPad now. Browser or app on an iPad is somewhat of a tossup for me. But on my smartphone I prefer an app. An app works better on a smaller screen. I use Safari a lot on my iPad. On my iPhone I definitely don’t use Safari that much. Mostly  I use apps, they work better on small screens. That is why there are mobile apps for phones. Even on phablets mobile apps are preferable to web browsers because of the screen size.

I think the app is so much easier. I was looking back and am surprised that the app has take so long to be fixed.  I emailed a few people at cc about it and nothing same with tapa talk weird.

Originally the was no plan for the current CC site to work with TT.  

 

 

Personally, I think TT has a user friendly interface and it's still up and running since the last TT app update. Hope things continue, and hope the iPhone app gets back up and running soon!

I don't like the way things are laid out on the website. Never have. Even before the switchover to the current software. With Tapatalk, I can see all of the boards I've joined, all presented in the same way. I can customize which forums and threads I see, and how. Just the ones I subscribed to. Or just the ones I've participated in. Or whatever.

It's fast, intuitive, and consistent.

I could count on one hand, the number of times I've accessed CC from my desktop this year.

Is it perfect? No.

No idea why CC is having so much trouble getting the plugins for Tapatalk working correctly. The biggest drawback at the moment, is it will only pull the 20 most recent threads in any particular forum. It's annoying, but I've learned to live with it for now. They say they're working on it, so I figure it'll get fixed eventually.

Take that with a grain of salt. I posted about the same response (in this thread) back in June. I believe others have posted similar responses for most of the past year.

I know it is a joke really how long this has gone on I mean I think cc should get this fixed as a lot of people use the app.

Just noticed your signature. Are you up and running with TT at least temporarily?

I’m posting this comment from the Tapatalk app. Don’t see any crashing yet and haven’t on the rare occasions I actually use the app.

I don’t get on CC from my phone much. When I do, I just use the browser. If I do use the app, I don’t even log in to my Tapatalk account. I just log in to my CC account through the Tapatalk app. Maybe that’s why I’m not experiencing any crashing, I don’t know.

CC was supposed to get the developer of their stand-alone CC app updated to work with the new forum format, but it’s been a long time since that was mentioned.

Some of us don’t want to use facebook. Besides, I find the Cruise Critic forums to be a much more valuable source of cruising information.

The original intention with the new site was NOT to update the CC app. They felt that the mobile experience on a browser was the way to go. It was only when a lot of people complained that CC even contemplated updating (or replacing) the app. I don't know how wedded they are to that, which might have something to do with where it seems to be on their priority list.

I find when using the browser and looking at your notifications a bit messy on an I phone

The original intention was misguided in my opinion but they should have stuck to it with the CC app and Tapatalk  instead of saying things about supporting the CC app and Tapatalk they don’t intend to carry out. Both the CC app and Tapatalk could run with little effort. I am a member of other forums using the Invision software and their custom app and also Tapatalk work. One of them switched to Invision in the same time period as CC. They were down for a few hours.  And those communities don’t have the 20 threads issue! It seems like CC wants to wait it out until users who the apps give up. Probably most have given up who remain on CC. Most people who like you that don’t care were never app or Tapatalk or CC app users so you don’t understand why we like Tapatalk or the CC app. Maybe CC was right in their original intentions but priorities have nothing to do with it. The apps could work. They made a decision. It is their business and they have that right. We will make do if we stay on CC as there is no alternative unless CC changes it’s mind. They should stop making promises they don’t mean to keep. If they wanted to they could have the apps working in a day or two.

I agree I think if this was priority it would have been done by now.
