    Hi everyone,

    recently we installed a plugin to the forum software that allows iPhone/iPad/Android users to access BadmintonCentral via a native app, Tapatalk.

    the tapatalk interface is quite nice and tailored for the phone and tablet screens and are quite pleasant to use.

    to download it, either search for Tapatalk in App Store / Google Play, or via the links below. after you install it, just search for badminton central within the app and you can log in via your regular BC username and password.

    unfortunately the app cost a few dollars but i believe many already have tapatalk installed.

    Hi Kwun,

    Encountered error when tried accessing BC via Tapatalk since yesterday.

    Seems the plugin has an issue to be solved.

    Thanks Tapatalk.jpg

    I am facing exactly the same problem (after setting up an account with Tapatalk for my iPad just hours ago). It costs us more than $5 something (Australian currency) to set up an account with Tapatalk.

    Hi Chris,
    I just noticed that BC server has some outage issue which admin believe 1 of the reason is due to the Tapatalk plugin.
    Thus, they temporary turn-off the plugin till further notice.

    but unfortunately BC slows down to a crawl. the plugin must be really poorly written. i need to do more work to make it stable. but unfortunately might not get to it till this weekend.

    Hi kwun,

    I tried to make a post to this thread via Tapatalk (in the last few minutes); But my post wasn't successful. :(:(:(

    This post is not made via Tapatalk, but via our usual BC forum site.

    Currently, have you disabled BC's Tapatalk again?

    chris,

    i haven't turned off tapatalk for the past 10 hours. the plugin is still giving sporadic slowdown in the system that i haven't have the chance to fix. so please bear with it.

    kwun, i suggest turning off the Tapatalk plugin for good until we know what the problem is. The server is now unresponsive.

    Setting up an account with Tapatalk, I was billed AUS$5.49

    BTW, by setting up an account with Tapatalk, I have been billed AUS$5.49.

    Right now, communicating in our BadmintonCentral forum is better without Tapatalk.
