Tapatalk loads the content that I want to read, whilst the mobile site looks great when it loads, it first needs to do that.

And because of that, if i'm on the move, I won't even bother because it takes too long.

Just tested it connected to work wifi (below) and it took nearly 2 minutes to load entirely from uncached.



If you factor in that the current best practices state most general users give up after 3 seconds, its a little bit out of whack. In comes Tapatalk, connected to a similarly image heavy forum, less than 2 seconds to load content.

I'm using WM10 on a Lumia 640 and with Edge over 4G or 3G the mobile site is pretty much instantaneous, the site is very low yield on mobile networks. There is very little nay, no need for Tapatalk integration.

Mobile rating is quite good for the forums, fair bit better than some mobile sites from major companies.

Where in cambridge are you? Because I'm in cambridge and there's none of that.

There's something wrong with your connection, or you're otherwise blocking an element of the site. It simply does not take that long to load.

Same here, Instant on iPhone 6S. Been on an other Site using Tapatalk that changed back to an own Mobile Site, at first when Tt was Free and very Simple it was great but now it is like 150MB, Needs Registration, Wants your Passwords, is slow and very unintutive in terms of Navigation. The quick and hard downfall of a Program that started as a genius idea actually ed me of a bot, all because of the money.

Same here. Also the mobile site I found uses FAR LESS data than using the desktop version. It's actually insane the difference. I still use the desktop version mostly though, I just like that everything is a little easier to use.
