It's annoying, and it's just as legitimate of an annoyance as panjo, I'll never use tapatalk because of it.


No they really don't annoy me one bit. In fact i don't even notice them. And no they have not paid me shit.

Many (most?) mobile apps support themselves by displaying ads or by offering a paid version to remove them; Tapatalk is no exception. The $3 payment works out to $0.25/mo if you only use it for a year. I've been using it for at least three, so that works out to less than $0.08/mo.

So the choices are simple: part with the $3, or spend several minutes posting about how much you hate it. It's really just a simple function of what your time is worth...

Or the nano second it takes to scroll the phone past it.

Yes I shouldn't have to do this, but it's a simple workaround.



Screw tapatalk, I'll never use their app based on the obnoxious and persistent ads on every forum I visit on mobile. Also "posted from my iphone with tapatalk"


I have zero ads on tapatalk and the signature can be disabled easily. It's not a bad app.

This.

I pretty much only visit using Tapatalk. I lose some functionality of the forum, but I'm not a person who spends much free time in front of a screen.

I've always found it funny when someone tries to lecture another person on the internet about "what your time is worth" in relation to "spending time complaining"

There's a certain irony to it.

It's also funny that people actively complaining over the span of multiple posts about panjo are telling me that complaining about tapatalk ads is stupid

Meh... maybe it doesn't resonate with you, though it might with someone else. If/when that happens, then it was well worth my time.

I wouldn't worry about varg too much. Seems to be a habitual instigator. Cool E30 and I like what he does with it, a lot, but man does he disagree/find a point to retaliate against with everything.
