Last day today. As I am in the UK, I will be fascinated to see in which time zone it disappears.... sticking with the app as long as I can!

I shall install Tapatalk free and, if TFO continues to work tomorrow, I’ll pay for the upgrade to remove the ads.

So is it both taptalk and the iOS app that are being disabled? I use my phone only but I do use the website on occasion (on my phone). It was way more convenient and easier to read on the app but I’ve been around for a bit so this won’t really stop me from using the forum. It’s just disappointing [emoji20]

The iOS and Android TFO apps (actually a customised version of Tapatalk that Josh had to pay for) are definitely going.

The forum may continue to work through the Tapatalk app... I am hoping it does... I will find out tomorrow

I started my Forum adventure from my computer - Google Chrome/tortoise forum.org, etc. and then after a few times my friend Google put up an icon on my Google Chrome home page for the Forum, so I just had to click the icon to get the Forum. Then, as the years went by, I was given a Kindle. I know the Kindle is not like a cell phone - you can't make calls on it unless you download a program - but it IS a small screen, and the only way I can get anything on it is to have an app or an icon. So from my Kindle I had to click on the Silk icon and because I like Google better than Silk, I would ask for Google, then type in tortoiseforum.org. After a few of these, I eventually was blessed with an automatic icon for the Forum. So now I just click on the Silk icon and the page that comes up has the Forum icon. It's the web version that I've been used to using. It's not any harder to access the Forum from my Kindle than it was from my computer. I really don't understand what you cell phone users are complaining about??????
