Community,

I recently installed TapaTalk, a mobile app that provides a nice design/skin for EMTLife. EMTLifers with an iPhone, Android, Nokia, or Blackberry can use the app/program to access EMTLife while on the run.

Ideally I had hoped and thought that vBulletin would provide a mobile skin in their recent product release, but it appears as though one is not forthcoming. While the most basic Tapatalk version is free, the one that allows you to post replies and start threads costs a few dollars.

To access our mobile skin via TapaTalk:

  • Using your phone's app marketplace either purchase the paid version (suggested) or download the free version of the app "TapaTalk".
  • Once you've installed Tapatalk, search for "EMTLife".
  • Tap on our name to enter the forum, and then you're welcome to log in and enjoy!
In the meantime I'll continue to work on providing a free mobile skin that looks great on a mobile device. If you know of another forum that has a great mobile skin please let me know. Also, if you're able to get TapaTalk to work on your mobile device, please let me know how you like it. I'm waiting for my iPhone to arrive next week, though the news reports don't seem to promising.

The free version of Tapatalk allows you to view the forum but not respond.

The paid version allows you to post and create new threads. You can even use the private message system.

There are over 4,000 forums using Tapatalk. You only have to pay once to use it on every forum using Tapatalk.

You can also edit your signature so "sent from" doesn't appear every time you reply.

For those who are using Tapatalk for the iPhone, is it working okay with the new OS?

I haven't had any issues. I am using it now- after the update.

Just a quick update about Tapatalk.

Tapatalk has been improving their app. They've made it more user friendly.

If you haven't tried it, head to your app marketplace and search for Tapatalk. There are two versions: free and paid. The free one allows you to view threads while the paid one allows you respond to them.

I use the paid version on my Android powered phone and really enjoy it.

I use the free version on my BB. I can reply with the free version( like now).

It does act up once in a while, but better then nothing.

I love this app, I'm in the rig posting on a corner like a two dollar Hooker, but thinks to tapatalk its easier to post and view the forum.
