I use tapatalk for all my forum's. Simply put, if its not on tapatalk I'm not gonna bother going to my computer and looking it up etc.

Having to use a separate app, and having to pay for it to get rid of the adds, means ill be viewing this forum rarely when I'm at home.

If I'm honest, I view this forum when I'm away from my computer, at work, and out and about when loading pages etc is quick and easy on tapatalk.

Poor move gentlemen.

This forum is starting to eat itself alive and I can't figure out why.

Stupid move and will anger and loose members as a result.

The owners of the site have made this change and switch which they are entitled to do as the site owners. Business is business at the end of the day and they did not buy the site to run it as a charity.

The app is available free or you can pay just over 2 euro if you want it advert free.

This thread will be left open for the time being but any abusive posts will be deleted.

I've never used tapatalk, but I've used the Autoguide free app
a few times recently and found it fine to use.

I'm posting from my phone now using the web browser, and
I'm pretty sure it's just as easy as posting from tapatalk or
the Autoguide one.

I didn't notice the adverts on the free Autoguide app to be
honest.

I'm not sure I see the big fuss.

They supply no content. We are the reason people visit the fourm. While I agree the site is not a charity the new owners have done nothing but litter the site with adds and now want to make us pay for an app to browse it on? Totally clueless they didn't even lock this thread they must know we wouldn't be happy?

They supply the servers that this site runs on.
Not locking this thread is a good thing. It gives members an opportunity to have their say.

I don't know what browser you are using but the only adverts i see are the banners at the top and bottom.
