    I've mostly moved over to Tapatalk in last few months. It finally displays social media links, the notifications and alerts are good. Straightforward stuff like editing posts, quotes, uploading images is now also pretty straightforward.

      Always use browser and had very few problems. Never tried Tapatalk - thought about it, but never taken the plunge.

      Never had any problems using browser on phone to access NSC. Only ever access it on phone.

      Tapatalk is great if one is moving around, i.e shopping with my wife which usually ends up with me hanging about between shops and refreshing NSC. I find it much quicker to use than a browser on a phone. Yes it has drawbacks, but it is very quick and uncluttered. I have the V.I.P. version, don't know if you can get that anymore, but there are no ads at all.
      If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice......

      Just tried it. One question was this supposed to be a link to NSC on this script or is it just the forum test script with loads of admin type threads/posts just for us to get an idea of the look/feel?

      Itís the only way I access NSC. I will try the other link.

      Edit. Tried link but not sure how to access NSC from there. Tapatalk is simple, no need to log in repeatedly, always opens on the page I want. Even shows tweets now.
      The logging in/out all the time is what puts me off from using it via safari or any other browser tbh. That might be lazy but Tappatalk is excellent for skimming what's going on, notifications etc when zipping between meetings and wanting a mooch about or a quick reply. Would probably not use it as much if this method was cut off.

      Tapatalk app on Android (phone) and Ipad for me. Both work fine. Ads are less intrusive than on desktop using Windows.

      Can't vote in polls but otherwise ok. No issues with being logged out etc.

      Interesting thing is that notifications in Tapatalk often show as posted by full name rather than NSC username, so if you're trying to stay anonymous you're possibly not......not sure of which setting determines it though as it's not all users.

      I think this depends on whether you follow that poster via Tappatalk or not rather than specific tappatalk settings.

      I only use Tapatalk for NSC. it's ok but no loyalty to it - the other link you posted looks fine and would happily move over to that

      I find it very useful, much easier for accessing NSC on phone than using a web browser.

      My general preference is for desktop sites across the internet on my phone. You end up losing too much content by using mobile sites.

      I am old fashioned so phones are for making calls and PC/laptop/tablet are for the internet and all other functions.
      So can you answer the question with regard to tablets? I didn't realise using one made you "old fashioned"!
