I noticed today that sponsored ads started appearing on the RDForum iOS app. Is that something that Tapatalk is doing?

It’s annoying as hell.

Yup its a Tapatalk thing. Use rdf mobile via a browser for now if the ads are that bothersome.

I can only assume that with the update, the Tapatalk addon either needs to be updated as well or has reset its config. There is an option in the config to disable ads so if that's been reset then that may explain why.

Thanks. I did see the personalized add thing in the settings now.

We’ll see if it’s better. Should be.

Main Tapatalk page on the phone app. There’s a picture with “Me” underneath it. That’s where you’ll find the Tapatalk settings. At least on my iPhone.

It’s not really making a huge difference yet.

Ah. I’m using the RDF app. I think that’ll opt either to give you generic ads or personalized. I don’t think it disables ads. Lol.

If you are getting ads on the actual RDF app (not the tapatalk app pointed to rdf) Then that is most likely an issue with the addon on the rdf server.
Nothing you can do about it at the moment.

Yes, tapatalk is a plague upon us. Switch to a browser and never look back.
It’s just not nearly as fast on mobile. Tapatalk is down completely now.

Currently another upgrade is going on from xenforo 2 to xenforo 2.1. A lot of the addons (such as Tapatalk) are getting redone. It'll probably be back up soon.

I believe this is an issue with auto-pay and Tapatalk. Honestly with xenforo2.0 I don't know if we even need Tapatalk.

Agree.

Taptalk is easier and faster than a browser when using an IOS smartphone, which I prefer to use these days, rather than my desktop or tablet.

I might try it to see if it’s better. Are you talking about accessing RDF with a browser now like safari or the RDF app?
