most if not all of us here are smart phone users, it would be convenient if we have tapatalk for MAL forums.

tapatalk is available for IOS, android and blackberry.

Oh, I think I saw that when I was looking at the apps. before. I don't intend to get it, though, since I don't use smart phones.

Well I have requested like twice and supported others requesting this but I get the same reply...

Use your browser.

Hardly seems like an answer.

to be honest i am quite surprised regarding the lack of response for this.

its either this topic doesn't have enough publicity or nobody uses a smart phone out there which i doubt so. maybe people don't even browse MAL forums on their mobile device anyway.

I think it's the latter for the sole reason that navigating the forum via any browser is cumbersome especially when posting. I Tapatalk would solve this and ideally get more people to be active in the forums while on the go, I know I would.

yeah i would surf the forums on my mobile while on the go too with tapatalk.

i have sent a private message to the site administrator (xinil). hopefully he will take a look.

anyway tapatalk supports this type of forum right?

from what i understand, the site admin just has to enable tapatalk by getting the plugin. sounds pretty simple to me.

Thx...kind of got sick of showing real profile on sites like this specially when otakus find out i'm a girl...had to be creative in hopes that i get less people trying to pick me up. At least this way, I can reply back by saying "in some states, what you you just wrote is a federal offense....to my brain"

Posting from my Galaxy Nexus:

I'd also love to be able to use Tapatalk, but nothing ever happens on MAL ... they only ever fix critical issues. Since that's what stop them from making the $$$. MAL is not based on a popular forum software afaik, it's an indie software per say. Links are damn hard to click without zooming in, even on my relatively big screen.

I don't see Crave making it any easier for apps to access the site. The revenue to keep the site running comes from advertising, and a good part of that is from forum browsing.

Obviously a native mobile app can navigate the forums more efficiently, but we won't see anything unless a user makes a standalone app or some system to bridge them. There are many users with programming knowledge who have made list management apps for Android and iOS, but none that are designed for the forums. There is no standard api for the forums either, but the page could be scraped to read topic lists easily enough.

I am a banana.

tapatalk is good. you should get it and use it to surf some of the forums that you frequent, provided that they are tapatalk friendly.

I guess not as many people use smartphones as you probably think. I think I wouldn't count to "all of us" either :/ I dislike smartphones and handys too, actually. I don't need a fancy phone, all I need a handy at least is for contacting someone in times of need or write a short sms or so lol that's actually the reason for which those things got invented, now look at what became of it. A fancy allround talent with useless features to make your lazy, convenient life more lazy and convenient and it's a wonder you actually can still use it as a phone.

Omg, I didn't even want to go that far, but when we're at this topic...

Well whatever, I wouldn't need it or anything related to something like you suggested. Also I think MAL doesn't have a need for it. If it ever get's approved and all, it wouldn't bother me though. I wouldn't be forced to use it of course and could just ignore it, so while I disagree with you, it wouldn't bother me if it actually will be there someday.

I don't use a smart phone, but it's obvious by the amount of people that do, websites will be required to fully support mobile technology within the next decade, probably sooner.

I do not want to sound mean, but if a MAL Staff member thinks that the chance of the idea actually being input is low, it means that it is extremely low.
Although I really like the idea and the intentions, realistically looking and looking at who owns and runs the site, I wouldn't want you to have your expectation too high.

Hi everyone,

I search today and I couldn't find MyAnimeList on Tapatalk. It's such a pity. We could browse this forum with tablets and phones. I am sure the feedback will be good and the number of posts are gonna increase.

Yeah, I took it there and 'bumped' this (AND add my vote for 'yes'), lol. Mainly b/c like manuelcalavera mentioned I just recently happen to do the same thing and was surprised that it didn't. Considering this one of the most well-recognized anime communities on web it's quite surprising it's behind, as it were, in mobile sense.

Tapatalk really is pretty nifty to use. It truly does make forum interaction and browsing on the go much simpler. And actually for those that don't soon you won't even have to worry about paying for Tapatalk anymore and the FREE version will become the default. News about that here: https://blog.tapatalk.com/?p=66

I mean, like others have said while I too have access this site fairly ok on my table it's still rather annoying zoom and do other sorts of manipulations to use it (and even more so for smartphones).
