    tapatalk requires me to give them permissions to both the forum admin panel as well as my web server log in credentials. That, for me, is too much a security risk.

    We do have a mobile version.

    m.twowheelmichigan.com

    it works very well.

    As an IT guy, I can't argue with your reasoning. But I like being able to access all the forums I read in a single place and TWM is the ONLY forum I read that isn't available on Tapatalk. Unfortunately, since its an outlier, I tend to forget to check it regularly.

    Ive checked taptalk and I can't get TWM roadglide.org so I just have icons on my phone that link to the sites. I used to use the motorcycle.com app but it sucked out loud

    Yeah I'm not a super IT guy with this stuff so I am cautious.

    Like Medic said, I too use a shortcut icon on my phone.

    tapatalk is a program that a forum owner buys and runs on the forum site. Then as an end user you get the app on your phone, you select the forums you are part of from their list of participating forums, and it kinda pools them all together for you on the app.

    But I have already stated my concerns and why I don't do it.

    Well even if you do I wont use it. My only beef with the mobile site is I can't post links. I wish the vb software allowed a little bit more freedom when posting links and pictures.It kinda sucks not having the advanced setting on the mobile site so that also means no smilies
