I have been following some threads on advrider -- trip posts (Jammin' Jay) and some gear related threads -- and I must say that Tapatalk is very cool. I am actively making some decisions on some topics related to some of these threads so I am getting updates as they come in.

I having been using Tapatalk on an older Android phone and 7" Google Nexus tablet (now cracked and not usable ) and Tapatalk is (was) very usable on both. My phone is on the older side (read: sucks) and the web browser crawls. Tapatalk, at least for subscribed threads, makes the phone feel useful again and more readable than trying to use the browser version of that site.

As some context, I work in computers, spend too much time on computers and too much time dealing with my phone (work related matters) so I often find that I have little patience for things like Facebook, Twitter, etc. That said, I am almost always excited when I see my Tapatalk notifications come in as I have subscribed to threads that truly interest me and want to keep up to date. And I get to see them with minimal fuss.

My CDN$0.02.

Nothing new, just asking if there's been any advance on this yet? I search for the HUBB now and then on Tapatalk but haven't found it yet.

Hi all, Tapatalk is getting higher on the list! Soon-ish, with any luck and assuming testing doesn't reveal any nasty surprises!

Tapatalk IS LIVE on the HUBB now - I think!

Poor installation system, registration etc at my end. Wouldn't work with IE or Firefox, ended up using OPERA!

So now we'll see what happens - do you get the Tapatalk notification? I suspect it will take a little while for it all to roll through Tapatalks servers, so let us know if you get it and it works!

Enjoy - I hope!

I'm in. Found my way in by searching in travel. Initial redirect from the browser didn't work for me.

That's great!

I'm faffing about with an old Android phone, and even I managed to get it to work, so cool!

Seems we're now listed in the Tapatalk Forums listing, under motorcycle / other, or just search horizonsu does it.

Please let me know if you have any trouble!

Works on my iPhone 5 with latest OS.

Photo attach function seems to work too.

Photo attach - good - we're using the native HU vBulletin attach, not the Tapatalk attach, so your images are stored here, not on Tapatalks servers, so less risk of loss etc!
