    First go to google and search "no longer support tapatalk" You will get some interesting reading from lots of forums on the internet.

    First and foremost I am not here to bash a product but the new Tapatalk layout is horrible but that's not the main reason.
    Tapatalk runs their own ads on the app, they pay forum owners a very small amount of their profits to the forum owners...
    Currently this is the breakdown on the users here and how they are accessing this website

    60% of the Traffic here right now is coming from a Tablet or Phone that means when Tapatalk is being used on all of those devices, Truckingboards loses 60% of the revenue it needs to support this website.

    Plus on top of that there have been security issues in the past.

    I am not trying to take away something you like but I can't afford to run those apps here and I can't afford the 70 dollars a month + setup fee to have a custom Truckingboards app developed .. If I did, I would have to put it on the Google Play Store and sell it to recoup funds.

    Use your browser on your phone to go truckingboards.com , you will find it has a very nice layout and has no sidebar.

    Thanks for being a Member here
