  • Aussie Arcade now has it's own Tapatalk App

    I've taken the plunge and got us our own BYO Tapatalk Mobile App.
    Tapatalk is the most popular and easiest way to access Aussie Arcade on mobile devices.
    Simply search for Aussie Arcade in the Google Play Store or Apples equivalent, download for free and enjoy.

    Before anybody complains yes there are ad's, I've left them enabled because they help pay for the app and in my opinion are not intrusive.

    Cheers

      I'm confused. If I already use tapatalk (with AA and other forums installed) why would I download this?

      Not having a go, just trying to understand why.

      You don't have to use it Its there to make it easy for people who use AA exclusively via mobile devices, not all forums use Tapatalk.

      The fact that it is dedicated seems to make it easier to use.

      Well that's what I wanted.
      Some people may have been reluctant to use Tapatalk because it can be daunting for new users. This makes it easy to access AA on the go.
      Download, sign in, enjoy.

      What's your problem?

      I asked a question and you answered it for me (thanks again), then @SwedishTaxi made an erroneous statement which I corrected.

      You get over yourself.

      Point taken, but that's the beauty of written communication. Without body language/facial expressions/tone etc it can be taken multiple ways.

      If you knew me, you'd know it wasn't condescending.

      All good.

      What model iphone are you using? I think the long tap/press is only on 6/6+ and above models. Don't think it's on 5s or below .

      oh and ios 9 (don't think it's on 8)

      Actually try a hard(ish) push. Pretty sure it works on a 6.

      Long soft push triggers delete/shaky icons. Short hard push triggers shortcuts (if the app has any, which tapa does).

      Sorry, got my long/shorts mixed up previously.

      -------------------------------

      Stop the presses. I was wrong. It's called 3D touch and it's only available on the 6s's. Sorry.
