    We've phased out the mobile app (no longer available in stores), and many members feel that the new version of Tapatalk is a mess.

    To add a link to your phone or tablet homescreen so that the site can be launched like an app, follow the instructions below which depend on what mobile OS you are using.


    For Apple devices (iPhones, iPads, iPod Touch):

    1) Visit www.photographerslounge.org in Safari.

    2) Tap on the share button (looks like a box with an up arrow) and then tap on "Add to Home Screen"

    3) Type a short name for the shortcut and tap on "Add".


    For Android devices:

    1) Visit www.photographerslounge.org in your browser*.

    2) Tap on the menu button and choose "Add to homescreen".

    3) Type a short name for the shortcut and tap on "Add".

    *I used Chrome. May be different in other browsers.


    For Windows Phone:

    1) Visit www.photographerslounge.org in Internet Explorer.

    2) Tap on the More (...) button and choose "Pin to Start".


    For Windows 8 / 8.1 / RT:

    1) Visit www.photographerslounge.org in Internet Explorer.

    2) Swipe up from the bottom, tap on the star icon

    3) Tap the pin icon, type a short name for the shortcut and tap on "Pin to Start".

    I have a copy of an older tapatalk "classic".apk for Android. I run it on my phone, and am using it to type this. It is a few versions back, and works without all the faff. I'm happy to email a copy to anyone who can use it - drop me a PM with your email if so. If you install, and disable auto updates as I have you should be fine.
