    Some of you use the HTF Android app - so we have tried to keep it working as long as possible. Unfortunately, the company who make the app (Tapatalk) have started to store user information from forums and have begun to sell advertising based upon this information. Our philosophy at HTF is that nobody should ever have access to our member's data, posting habits or online activity in any way. As a result the ownership have had to make the unfortunate decision to remove Tapatalk support from HTF and unpublish our app in Google play.

    This decision will not be reconsidered, so please post here only if you need support with the mobile browser version of HTF, which works on any device.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Is the mobile version different from the one we had a few years ago? I still have that one, but it doesn't work. Hasn't updated in ages. I can't find anything under "Home Theater Forum" or "HTF" in the app store.

    I believe by "mobile", Dave is referring to a mobile browser. The app itself was based on Tapatalk, and you can't find it because it's been unpublished.

    An app that, while I've never used it myself, was no doubt, very useful to some. What a pity the makers of Tapatalk have chosen to taint their service over stupid corporate greed.

    I echo Josh's appreciation in your having our backs, in terms of privacy issues! Thanks, Dave! :)

    CHEERS! :)

    I will miss it, but I completely understand why you guys made the decision you did. Add me to the chorus who appreciate the HTF looking out for our privacy.

    I've already easily moved over to using a mobile browser icon on my phone and tablet. I completely understand your decision and applaud it. Thank you.

    Great! Now if we can figure out a way to mute an entire sub-forum so I don't have to see DOCTOR STRANGE 4 SALE posts when I click "New Posts," I'll be a happy camper.

    Brad here. Hate to lose Tapatalk access but thanks for looking out for your members.

    May now have to reconsider using Tapatalk for other forums as well:

    Only issue I have using a mobile browser (Safari) is that I constantly have to re-login.

    I constantly browse this site on my iPhone and it remembers my login. You might need to check Safari's cookie settings.

    It took me a few attempts to keep logged in on my iPhone, I don't remember exactly how I did it but it stays logged in now.

    I also am considering uninstalling Tapatalk but would like to ask for some clarification. The stated reason is dissatisfaction with the android app. Since I use an iPhone do you know if the same problems exist with the iOS app? If they do then I'll uninstall it and write a low rated review, otherwise I'll keep it and use it for other fora.

    The issue is with Tapatalk themselves on the back end. They are collecting statistics about your habits and selling that to advertisers if you use their app.
