Nothing has changed since the previous discussion.

Sadly. It's a travel-oriented board almost unusable from a mobile phone.

OTOH, the vBB board I administer is chugging right along and I do most of my reading and posting and moderating with Tapatalk.

See http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/techn...flyertalk.html. IB Admin will focus on developing a better mobile skin; Tapatalk will not be an option, not apps for iOS or Android.

Oh, I know their response before even asking. About once a year I just like to mention Tapatalk just to hear them tell us again that it isn't happening, even though it's the best tool for the purpose.

And it's not like they're really improving the mobile skin given how many FTers complain about it. I mean this nicely, but it truly boggles my mind that an entity such as IB which owns many websites/BBs & presumably knows that the majority of people (especially millennials) access websites/bulletin boards via mobile apps still have a crappy mobile app.

Cheers.
