    I have seen this also, but only on my smart phone.
    Probably an option for using an app, for beter viewing

    Ignore the app and just use the browser option. LFP does not use complex web effects, so the browser view is fine.

    Hi Paul
    I get the same thing from time to time, I think for whatever reason the site's software forgets whether or not you are on a mobile device and whether or not you have a browser preference and it is asking if you'd like to use "tap talk" or similar/other mobile applications to make the your large format doom scrolling that much more pleasurable. I've never used the 3rd party/mobile browsers so I don't know if I am missing anything, like animated Memojis, Emojis and 3D images, TBH, if they had "telnet" as a 3rd party option, I'd probably use that, much easier to doom scroll without distracting images.

    but why so many posts showing this option? is it an android thing? do my posts show this? thought we are getting smarter but it seems improvements are a step backward lately.

    It is just a plug (ad) for you to download the Tapatalk app on the device you are using.
    It happens occasionally on all vBulletin forums I visit.

    I have never bothered to use Tapatalk (which supposedly should give you a better user experience of the forum on mobile devices) so I don't know if it is worth pursuing.

    If you select the option of "Continue" with your own browser - in this case Chrome - then it will be a while before you are asked again.
    Just an irregular nuisance - that is all.

    Because LFPF supports Tapatalk, one of the standard aspects of that support is the nag when you view the forum using a browser on a devise that Tapatalk supports. I use Tapatalk a lot and I get the nag all the time. If you don't want to use Tapatalk, just continue past it.

    Yes, it's a nuisance, but many of us prefer Tapatalk for accessing the forum online. I preserve the browser view for certain moderator actions, like killing spam, but it involves a lot of zooming in an out to do anything. But that's just me, and others may prefer the browser skin on their smartphones.
