    Everytime I go to a new page now on the iPhone I get a message telling me that there is an app I can use called tapatalk. Is there a way to turn that off? Thanks.

    I hate it when sites prompt me to download an app every single time I use it.

    Why?
    • Because I often find the browser is better than the often lame app.
    • Because many apps don't let you zoom the text in, and my eyes aren't 20 years old.
    • Because I don't want to pay money for an app when the browser is just fine.
    • Because I have so many apps I don't want to have to use the search function every time I want to find one (I'd organize the apps better but that is the one place where the iPhone and iTunes GUIs really suck).
    • Because I want to just get on with reading the fool site and that message is in the way.


    It's not that I feel strongly about it or anything...

    I agree. I bought the app but that doesn't turn the warning off and I like the web interface better anyway. Was this warning triggered from a change on the website or is it something I downloaded (I had downloaded Tapatalk HD for iPad but the warning only shows up on my iPhone).

    I only get it once. You get it continuously? I'll ask MPT about it.

    Yeah. Just started today and only on the iPhone. Let me try rebooting the iPhone. Hadn't done that yet.

    I turned the iPhone off and back on and it's still doing it.

    I have iPhone to never accept cookies. I tried everything here and it still does it. Strange.
