Tapatalk support for LQ?


I would like to know if there will be any support for Tapatalk to LQ on Android in the near future.

I use Tapatalk most of the time from my mobile and since LQ doesn't have support for this service yet I thought it will be a good idea to suggest that LQ should have Tapatalk support. I believe it will be a great a advantage for myself and other users who are using Tapatalk.

Thank you,

Been brought up in the past, and the answer is no. LQ already has a native app, there isn't much point implementing Tapatalk on top of it.

It called (appropriately) "LinuxQuestions.org":

I was searching the forum for the Tapatalk word and I suddenly found this thread and even if it is just a little bit old - but not too much to open a new unesless one - I wan to say my modest opinion..
I still haven't take a look at the LQ native application for Android, but the real point is another: why the end-user should install and start another app? If he is using Tapatalk and he is confortable with it, it's easy to understand that he would prefer to use Tapatalk also for LQ..
Sure the native app will have some specific feature that Tapatalk couldn't, but implementing another app could maybe be another way to capture more users, an occasion for someone to know LQ!!

my 2 cents..

The reasoning was that since there is no fully-functional free forum app (tapatalk and forumrunner are both paid), a user shouldn't have to buy third party software to post to LQ from a mobile.

see also: my own glorious thread on the subject.

The reasoning is good. But would it not be possible to give users the choice i.e. free native app or support for paid tapatalk app as some other forums offer?
Many LQ users may already have TP installed.
