Default How to use BA forum via Mobile Devices

In general, there are a ways of experiencing and using BA forums via a mobile device, depending on the kind of device you got, and the browsing capabilities of the device.

Option 1: Tapatalk for Iphone/Android/Blackberry/Nokia smartphones

This is a cooperation with the provider www.tapatalk.com
which are porting Vbulletin forums into an Iphone look.
Very easy to use, looks very good, and works very well indeed.

Downside: Full functionalty only with Tapatalk's full version, which costs 2.99 USD in the Iphone App store, and the same on Android's Market.
Same applies for the other smartphone app stores.

Free version can be downloaded without some functionality.

You only got "Read only" with the free version, meaning you can not reply to forum messages in the free version.

Check for yourself at www.tapatalk.com



Option 2: Auto-detection of skins (text based or default)

BA forum currently got 2 skins. "Default" which is the normal PC view, and "Mobile2", which is a text based view, more like a WAP type of view, no images, only text.

We have installed autodetection of mobile devices.

1. Ordinary phones

"Old" mobile phones without good browsing capabilities will be detected as a device which will automatically get the text based forum view (Mobile2 skin).

2. Iphone/Android/Ipad, etc

More advances phones, typically smart-phones like Iphone, different type of Android based phones, and also Windows Mobile /CE based phones will see the default forum view (Default-skin), BUT they got the ability to change their skin if they want to, manually, but chosing the desired skin in the bottom left of the forum.

3. PC/Mac, etc

Ordinary PC-viewers will default see the "Default-skin", but can manually change to the text based ("Mobile2") skin if they want, by manually changing the drop down in the low left of the forum.

----------------------

Note that there are many types of smartphones, and sometimes some of them may be detected as "non-smartphones".
If so, let me know via PM, or as postings in this thread, and I will add rules that fixes this.
At the moment I dont have the complete overview of all the different user agent strings needed, but it will come good.

In case you encounter problems, please check the www.tapatalk.com forum for solutions.
It is vital to keep your phpne app updated with the latest fixes issued by Tapatalk.

The light version works well to my knowledge. Not heard of any problems.
I have had some PMs from people with problems on Iphone, with the Tapatalk software.
Usually this happens because they have not updated their app in the App store.

I use Tapatalk on my HTC Desire (Android), works like a dream.

Can I just say I used the new mobile version of the site today and its top banana

Unlike other forums who dont do this, it very easy to use, very compatible with my N95 8GB, and this gives you the edge over other forums

Thanks

Personally I'm not using BA mobile, so I may not be 100% right but at the bottom of every forum page you have menu to select skin:

just select mobile2 and I believe it should work with any phone..

Why doesn't BA develop a mobile app, like 2p2 or Covers have? It shouldn't cost that much and it would be so useful for those of us using mobile devices...

TapTalk is the best mobile app through which U can read/attend forums. In the official store it cost some pennies but if U are smart enough U can get a "bit less legal" download on internet

no idea about 2p2 (how their app looks like and what features are there), but as for Covers, the things is that Covers is something more than just website+forum with betting tips, like BA is, it's a big website (almost a web portal) where betting tips are just a small feature. They have team stats, live scores, trends, sports news - all that jazz, so a personalized, complex app for all of that is definitely a must. But like Akira mentioned, Tapatalk is forum-focused app and it wouldn't really make sense spending bucks on our personal app while you already got a cheap (and very good) app that works here very well.

Now with new Tapatalk API.

You will now receive push on your phone, if you so wish, when someone send you a PM at BA forum.
