iOS Users - Best MGS experience - App or Safari


Recommended Posts

So, what to my fellow iOS users prefer for the best experience of MGS?  Using the App, or just using Safari?  Just curious what long time users find provides the richest experience for reading/viewing; and best for posting.  
 

for example, I have yet to figure out how find the gallery with the app, or be able to post a graphic via the app.  But hey, I’ve also gone looking for a wayward drive in the junk sixty yards from where I should be...  Using the app should be more convenient.  Just curious about others experience.

I use my old ipad (1st gen?) with the app in the evening while watching tv. The app version is definitely more limited and has random glitches, but you can post pics,  If you have a reasonably fast ipad go with the safari version.

Without having to provide too much detail - how Do you post Picts.  All I get is the little “reply” box and I can see any attachment options.  Thanks for any advice, and help.

Chrome or Tapatalk direct. The app is unusable for me.

Yes, how do you post Picts in the app.  Easy enough to do in a web browser.  Just can’t figure out how to do so in the app. Thanks.

I started with the MGS app and then switched to Tapatalk. I’m currently using Safari exclusively as I really did not care for the apps. To each their own but I prefer the Safari page.

Interesting topic,

I use either a laptop, tablet or phone. Always went through a search engine google or chrome. Then star it as a favorite to get to it quicker. But the interesting part is that the MGS site appears differently based on the devise I'm using. Never tried the app over the years but I think I'll load it today and give it a whirl.

Just to chime in on the topic, the browser version of the site gives the truest experience. This would either be on a regular desktop or in the mobile/tablet browsers of your choice Safari, Chrome, Firefox, etc and it's my preferred method. 

That said, totally understand the desire to have a dedicated app. There's currently 2 ways to access it: standalone MGS app and via Tapatalk. The experience is the same in each since Tapatalk hosts both. Problem is, Tapatalk's software is steadily diverging from our forum host so the functionality continues to dwindle as we get further apart. This manifests itself in various bugs and errors that we can't fix although the apps are still mostly compatible. 

Sounds like there's not a solution? There is. Our host, Invision, will be offering mobile app support with the next major system upgrade. This will be great for us all in the way of a native app that will continually be upgraded to keep common language with the forum. It'll take the forum of a multi-forum environment like Tapatalk but specific for Invision-hosted sites. 

I'm really looking forward to it but am still cautious that it may take time to get it right. So, we'll be carrying the Tapatalk tie-in until we feel comfortable enough to fully transition.

I use the app 98% of the time.

Just hit that little circle with a plus sign and you’ll have the option the add pictures.

99% if the time I use tapatalk. If I want to do a poll before I get on a computer I will use chrome for iOS. The only problem with tapatalk is that it is a little slow and glitchy but does most everything I need it to do.
