Tapatalk Usage Survey (Sept 2018)
« on: September 03, 2018, 11:03:08 am »
I am trying to see how much Tapatalk is actually used in The Cauldron. There is no "Other" (on purpose) so please select the answer that you feel best describes your usage of TC. Feel free to explain more in a post in this thread, however.

Thanks!

When I'm at home I use Firefox on a desktop; that's a no-brainer. But when I'm out and about I prefer Tapatalk's interface to trying to manipulate a mobile browser on a handheld screen.

I use Tapatalk on my phone for all the time I’m on the cauldron.

Never used a phone to access the cauldron, probably never will. I loathe and detest the things.
"The worshippers of the gods go to them; to the manes go the ancestor-worshippers; to the Deities who preside over the elements go their worshippers; My devotees come to Me." ... "Whichever devotee desires to adore whatever such Deity with faith, in all such votaries I make that particular faith unshakable. Endowed with that faith, a votary performs the worship of that particular deity and obtains the fruits thereof, these being granted by Me alone." - Sri Krishna

I am a vote for 'use it occasionally to read and reply' where 'occasionally' is in my case when I'm travelling. (My travelling thing with a keyboard is an iPad.) It makes reading and replying a lot more reliable for me, especially if I'm somewhere the wifi is a little wonky.

Hilariously I cannot see the survey on Tapatalk. I wonder if that's just me? Otherwise might skew the results. XD

I only use Tapatalk to read and reply lately.

I had to log onto my laptop to see the survey as well. Otherwise, I use Tapatalk to read and make my occasional posts.

Unfortunately, it is not just you. Tapatalk does not even handle all basic forum features. :(

So it's a feature, not a bug, that a Tapatalk-only user can't answer the quiz on Tapatalk usage? XD

I consider it a bug. I guess the people who own/code Tapatalk see it as a feature.

I'm just going to add that this issue makes it doubly important for Tapatalk-only Cauldron participants to respond here in the thread.

Ha!  Yeah, I didn't even realize there was an actual survey -- because I mostly access TC on my phone -- until I read about how I couldn't see it on Tapatalk.

Sigh.

I've had my issues with Tapatalk -- mostly failing to quote, even when I thought I was quoting -- but it's SO much easier for me to look at my phone screen than my laptop screen, even when the screen is at it's lowest light.  It's just painful.  So, I tend to use my phone for most of my regular online interactions:  TC, FB (which, tbh, I hate and wouldn't be on if I didn't need it for a few groups I want to be part of, including Clann Bhride), email, and most of my online reading.
