    I've been gone a lot due to summer classes and working on my car some. It's probably somewhat the new factor. People always get upset when facebook makes a change - even if it's for the better.

    Some of it might be that the downtime broke people out of their habit/obsession of being on here too.

    it just seems that i need to click 10 tiny buttons before i can get to where i want to be. with tapatalk it was 1 or 2 presses and i was in my messages/participated threads/started threads. also the load time is a lot quicker on tapatalk (probably because not as many ads)
    My local forum and another forum i use are on tapatalk and it is convient to have all of them in one spot on one app. i could check 2 or 3 forums to see if any messages came through or reply's to threads very quickly. don't get me wrong, i love the new site and what matt did, it looks great, but for mobile users i think tapatalk is the best option. just my 2 cents

    What phone do you have? I've never had a problem, but I have a Note 2 (although I don't ever use the stylus).

    No Tapatalk pretty much killed it for me. I was on a few times a day browsing now its once a week. Its nice being able to browse all the forms essentially at once through an app. I only browse through phone and Tapatalk makes life more simple. Currently there is too much on the homepage to make we want to browse it looks like a 16 year olds pintrest. I just want to see the last updates and keep scrolling down. And unless you were a Tapatalker you wouldn't understand, its too hard to go back haha

    Sorry but I disagree with you. When you hover - I get a menu but there is no button so you can see your posts or threads. I click conversations and nothing shows up and I have a few active ones. As far as tapatalk - I liked having all my forums right there - I see my new posts navigate easily and IMO a big plus when 3Reef was on it.

    I never used tapatalk and find the mobile version pretty easy to use. I can understand if you have several forums and use them all through tapatalk but IMO the mobile version works great.

    And didn't I read somewhere that Matt was working on an actual app as well?
