Default Mobile App changes coming!

We're making some changes to our mobile applications at the end of this month that we would like to share with you.First, the two apps (PetGuide.com Free and Petguide.com) are being discontinued by the software developer that created them for us. As such, those apps will not work past May 31st, 2015. Second, we will soon be introducing a new way to access the forum through mobile applications. The new PetGuide app is based on our Topify in-web version, and is developed with photos and videos in mind, and allows you to save your favorite forums, receive notifications, change your theme, and access all of your favorite PetGuide communities.

We work very closely with the developers of this application, so we can build and add custom features as requested by the community; a luxury we did not have with the former applications. Please send us your ideas!Lastly, we will be allowing Tapatalk users to now access the sites via their app. However, because it is not affiliated with our company, we do not provide technical assistance. Thanks!

Is TapaTalk 'live' yet, or is that still coming? I was not able to find it just now. I much prefer that over another stand-alone app, I use it all the time so will be pleased when it's added back Thanks for that!

I'm not sure if we're on the same page here but the Tapatalk based app that we made available previously won't be "compatible" to browse our site here as of May 31. If you want to use the NEW mobile apps, scroll up to post #2 for the links to download them.

I thought that this meant TapaTalk would be an option again?

Perhaps you misunderstood or we mistakenly wrote that somewhere. I'll look over our posts again but to be 100% definitive, the new mobile apps will NOT be based on Tapatalk.

OK, no TT. Got it. No need to look over posts, that's at the end of #1 above. It's confusing, or at least was for me.

I'm just not a fan of PetGuide (current layout) and suspect I won't like the new one either. I'd like, at least, an ad free version. I also don't like that every pet forum is smashed together in one app. I use this one only and it's a pain to swipe through all the 'useless' ones.

Just me griping though. Thanks

Giving it a go now. Added to favorites so that's better! I'd still like an ad-free option, for not a ton of $.

Two things:
It's really slow, and I'm on wifi.
Would it be possible to bypass/ignore/strip the text modifications people use? Just have it all default to a plain text? It's incredibly hard to read some of the fonts folks are using on a phone.

Thanks, and I do appreciate the effort to make this a great forum and available everywhere!!!
