    I tried to get it working with Tapa when I saw the notification the other day, but I'd never used Tapa before so couldn't find it.

    When it's back up, how will I go about finding it exactly?

    A search for "student" pulled it up for me.

    First thing I tried :beard:


    I'll give it another try when you get it working with vB4.

    Board Express for Tapatalk.

    Problem is, if TSR launches a branded app and doesn't allow the regular Tapatalk to access the forums then Board Express won't be able to access them. A branded version of Board Express is possible if the TSR team deem it worthwhile.

    It doesn't seem to be working at the moment. Anyone else having issues with it?

    See post 20 http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showpost.php?p=36411672

    The Tapatalk functionality has been temporarily disabled with the update to vB4.

    I expect that we'll see an announcement from admin once it's all back up again.

    Tapatalk is now working again

    Our own version of the Tapatalk app is also underway now. It'll take us a few weeks to iron out the bumps before we release it - but it's in progress

    Any news on the app?

    Tapatalk is quite limited since it misses a lot of TSR specific features.

    One question; will latex be supported on the app?

    Yup - the "Latest" functionality isnt yet working as on TSR we use a different methodology for Latest. This will be fixed before our own app goes live.

    Everything to do with latex on TSR happens behind the scenes - you put bbcode-latex code (i.e. plain text) in your post, TSR parses it and displays it as an image when that post is requested.

    "Why wouldn't it?" is my question here.

    Development is well underway. I have a TSR branded version in my hot little hands

    There are bugs to fix, and tweaks to be made, before we release it in Beta. We'll know more about the size of those bugs and how long they'll take to fix within a week. I'll try and keep you posted.

    On day one it will be pretty much the same as the Tapatalk version - we want to get a version into use quickly so people can use it for the core functions of posting/viewing threads etc.. we can then see what else is in greatest demand to add after.

    One thing we are clear on though is that we aren't going to fully reproduce all functions of TSR in an app - that would make it too complicated and lose the benefits of a nice, simple easy to use app. There will always be things that are best done when you get back to a PC rather than in an app - I suspect Latex may be one - but again we'll assess demand once we get the app out their being used.

    Exciting stuff though - I think you will like

    No sorry I meant would it be displayed on the app, I know it would still actually appear on the full site

    Thanks a lot for the reply - with regards to specific features that'd be including stuff like rep ('thanks' for XDA works on Tapatalk so I'd think that'd be fine) and displaying stuff like spoilers etc. But yeah I understand how you have to hit a middle-ground so it's still a smooth simple app.

    Thanks again for the communication - hope to hear more soon
