Yet another looking for an update...I hate to have to say it, but my DIS time has been curtailed significantly just because there's no real iPad-friendly way to do it... (granted, my reading of random WDW blogs with twitter has increased exponentially, but I'd rather be on the DIS!)

Another vote for Tapatalk. However as the Dis have eticket I think that they won't use Tapatalk as eticket is a revenue for the Dis.

Strange that DISboards is not on tapatalk. I think just about every other bulletin board I frequent uses this wonderful feature. I would love to have DISboards catch up with everyone else!

I wish it was that simple
It goes something like this
Tapatalk won't work with our boards because we use a third part search system and it's not compatible
The mobile client that will work is not compatible with our CURRENT version of search
We can't upgrade search because the new search is not compatible with our current version of Linux

So.. I have some new servers I am setting up now
Once that is done we will migrate to the new servers
Upgrade the search
Try the compatible mobile client....

Stay tuned!!

Can't wait! Love Disboards but don't like being unable to use while traveling.

Am I the only one who finds this board REALLY slow to load often. I frequently click on a thread and then go to another page in a different browser tab because it would take 20-30 sec to load on my computer. The search is even slower and often the results are 1000s, many of which are not relevant to the search.

The only reason I bring this up is because if the owners of the board consider upgrading the website to allow tapatalk, maybe they could think about an overall larger upgrade to accomodate this board's volume better and let it run faster and more efficiently. I frequent quite a few very active boards (including cruise critic, some android forums...) and while the boards have 1000s of posts every day, they are all much faster than DIS. It would be nice to see improvement in this as well as being able to use tapatalk.

Another vote here for TapaTalk. I use it for CruiseCritic and Passporters, and we have a Disney Cruise coming up soon!

So how are the new servers coming along? I know it's a lot of work to get things set up and move things over and not have down-time on the DIS.

Unless the mobile client is free, people are not likely to pay for it just to read DISboards. Tapatalk is widely used for most boards (pretty much every single board I am on uses it). I think it will not be successful to find some "random" mobile client and assume that people will want to pay for the app.... Because most of us don't want to pay for anything when it comes to the internet.

I would recommend finding an upgrade for the boards that makes use of tapatalk (and a better search engine)....

JMHO of course.

Did anyone say anything about paying for the mobile client?
As for finding an upgrade for the board, find me some software that
can handle our volume.
Trust me there is not much out there
