    You shouldn’t get it on every post. Are you logged in with the “keep me logged in” box checked? I’m able to use the browser skin for quite some time between nags. But if you click links from notification emails, you’ll see it every time.

    It’s been this way as far as I know for many years.

    To check myself, I just spent the last half hour looking through the forum using Safari on my iPhone. I saw the Tapatalk nag precisely once.

    But I also got a headache reading that tiny text, or trying to scroll image windows that don’t scroll. And trying to sharpen my thumb in a pencil sharpener hurt.

    Of course, there is forum software with better mobile skins, but none of them really work well on a smartphone.

    Don’t skip posts that show the option — it is not the fault of the poster, rather it is the software, so you would be ignoring valid posts. I don’t want to install Tapatalk, so I just select the browser option.

    I don't have any of those apps but still get the nag occasionally on various forums. It happens on both my kindle fire and my iPad.

    One thing just came to kind…

    If I leave the forum as an open tab in Safari (or whatever browser), I get the nag less often. I do a couple of forums that use Xenforo, which I don’t really like but which at least has a usable mobile skin. One of them has implemented a Tapatalk interface which I don’t use. I get the nag on that forum maybe as often as once a week/month, but I never close that tab. That may not actually be cause and effect but I’ll pass it along.

    The taptalk virus should be removed from the host server.
    It makes this site a real shit forum.

    Re: why does this happen on some posts?

    the nag went away the last time i mentioned it , but its back since yesterday.. what changed?.

    when it went away, i tried signing out and logged back in to see if it was cured... and no nag! mysteriously it returned yeaterday and i didnt log out between then and now.

    i wonder if it has something to do with my android tablet os?
