But I have all that on my iPhone and iPad using Safari, I'm still lost on the point of it Mike :?

That's what I thought, DickieG so I've given up on it, using the browser instead.

Pain the posterior so it is.....

The latest version of it certainly is Richard...

The earlier version was actually quite usable but now all it's good for is ringing the temple bell to alert you to a topic reply...

This may just be my total incompetence with technology but the Tapatalk on my iPad doesn't even do that!

I've spent a couple of hours messing with it and I can't work out how to..perhaps if I could find the installer for the last version I could. .

Yes you can.... I'm posting from it now...

Uninstall Tapatalk. Go to the Google play store. Go to My Apps.. then find the older version of TT that you had installed before, install it and turn auto updates off...
