    Hi all,
    Tapatalk is a client for smartphones that provides easy viewing of forums on your smartphone. If you've ever tried to read these or other forums in the browser on your smartphone, you know it kinda sucks. Tapatalk makes it easy to read the forums in a format designed for smartphones. It also provides notification of new PMs and posts in your favorited forums.

    I've installed the tapatalk server-side app on the boards. All you have to do is install the tapatalk client on your phone, search their directory for "Timberline Garrison", and log into the forums with your normal credentials!

    Not only can you view the Timberline Garrison forums with tapatalk, but also many other 501st-related forums including several other garrisons, the MEPD, whitearmor.net, The Dented Helmet, the RPF, and probably more (that's what I've found so far).

    The tapatalk client is available for iphone and ipad in the iphone app store, for android in both the Google Play store and Amazon App Store, and for Blackberry in the Blackberry app world. The app runs about $2.99 but is TOTALLY WORTH IT!

    If you've ever wanted to be able to easily read forums with your phone or ipad, this is the way to do it!

    -Doug

    I had no idea something like that existed. I've been bugging the mods on thedaftclub to make the forums mobile for so long now. Thanks Doug!

    The tapatalk app says the API is expired? Can anybody else access the forum on the app?

    API has been upgraded.

    Also, it looks like (at least in the Google Play store for Android) the Tapatalk app is now FREE!!! Not only are we using it here, but several other 501st-related forums including some of the detachments also use it, including:
    FISD
    Sith Lord Detachment
    Clone Trooper Detachment
    MEPD
    Jolly Roger Squadron
    Imperial Officer Corps
    Krayt Clan
    Bounty Hunter's Guild
    Flagship Eclipse

    The R2 Builders and the RPF are also using it. If you haven't tried it, you should download it and give it a shot. It's really nice to have access to all of your favorite forums in one place on your phone or tablet!
