    It was a pop up when you first downloaded.
    All apps do it and its up to you to read whatthey want access to.

    I like the current color scheme a lot. It's soothing to the eyes but still cheerful color.

    I don't like the browns and blacks option at all. It makes me think of a tech forum, cold and sterile seeming for some reason. Sorry. Also, demanding it be your choice of colors, then purchasing it immediately seems like an attempt to force it to be used.

    I agree with those that say the theme and colors and layout is good, and improving a couple things like uploading photos and improving mobile access would be the only things to concentrate on.

    I access this site only on my laptop. So I'm still looking for a better place to use for uploading pictures.

    Here I downloaded just to show you, this is the permissions Tapatalk supposedly needs to work, I denied them all just to show it.


    And I guess my response to I like the way it is, why do you see modern styling as worse? You can change colors easily, don't focus on that, but layout and navigation look much better imo. This is what I see on the phone

    Video takes a ton of space, pictures, hardly at all.

    Thank you everyone for your feedback thus far--it helps us to determine what is important to you all.

    We will be keeping the current color theme for the foreseeable future. Even if we were to add on some sort of mobile optimized option this would still be the color theme (or something very similar).

    We do have a gallery that you can use for hosting your photos. A gallery that takes up several gigabytes of space on the server, because photos do take up a lot of space when there are gazillions of them. Do you not like the gallery? Is it not easy enough to use, or what is the main complaint with it?

    As far as mobile options go, what exactly are you looking for? Is it the appearance or the functionality that you would like to see improved? Or both?

    My phone photos are too big to upload, so I never use it. It needs to resize on upload I would imagine. Also ideally we would be able to upload where we type our messages.

    Responsive design is what I would like. Not having to zoom and scroll left n right to see things would be nice, nested quotes in PM's are a mess also on mobile. It looks like vbulletin 5 is responsive from the start.

    Well I myself have never had any issues with TapaTalk and I've been using it for years ... I stopped bothering with PhotoBucket and the like many years ago as they were such a faff to use .

    TapaTalk works great with IPhones and IPads and I'd say that I possibly upload more photos to this site than anyone else ...

    Why does it need to have your contacts available when you only want to use it for your gallery?
    This is what Tapatalk can access on the phone. Why do you say it accesses your contacts?
