Default Forum Access Options

I've been using Tapatalk to access the forum for the last couple years, but recently they've started to run video commercials that can't be bypassed.

What is everyone else using (other than regular website access)?

Default My tablet

I have used my Samsung Tab A for a long time, at least five or six years, when I didn't have a laptop.

I had started off using Tapatalk and found it useful at first. However, I found it somewhat difficult to browse the forums and I also found it difficult when the subject line couldn't be seen and posters didn't include what was in the subject line in their post.

Finally, I ended up signing into Winni.com on the regular site with my tablet. Over all, this was a better option than Tapatalk. After getting my laptop a few years ago, that has been my sign-in method of choice, although I still use my Tablet on occasions for portability reasons.

I have used my Samsung S23 cell phone on a few rare occasions, but it is overall a little too small for regular browsing.

Good luck with trying to find an alternative to Tapatalk. There is a price to pay for portability. Is there an option for paying to bypass the commercials?

Dave

Just use winnipesaukee.com

Login, done!

You can create a link on your phone or tablet page, the it works almost the same as having an app. I do the same for winnigas.com

Honestly, I hadn't thought of that, but just went and tried it and was reminded why I didn't do that in the first place: too small font that requires zooming in, choosing tabs, etc.

Thanks for the tip, though!

Click the option off that says "Desktop site" vs mobile version, or something similar, depending on which phone/tablet/browser you use.

It makes it a lot easier to use, etc.

I did that before responding, but it still requires zooming, though it was less so. I also had to find the forums or choose "today's posts," which is less user-friendly than Tapatalk.

I may just have to pay for Tapatalk Pro (egads!) or suffer with the videos.
