I see this forum is not enbled with Tapatalk which is a great way to read forums from mobile devices.

Can the Moderators and Founders please enable the site. It is FREE and great way to keep up while on the road.

Thanks

Got something against the dedicated Bimmer app?
AFAIK it's even based on Tapatalk (judging by the directory names it has created on my devices).

If this forum isn't accessible via Tapatalk as a generic app, I would suspect that the existence of a dedicated app has something to do with it.

Pretty much this. It's been asked before but the Bimmerfest Gods are not interested in enabling Tapatalk as the site has it's own mobile app.

bimmerforums has it's own Tapatalk derived app and they "unofficially" allow the normal Tapatalk app to access the forums still..........

seems like a stepping over dollars to get to dimes situation to me

i don't mind supporting the forums i frequent, but I think Tapatalk (generic) access is something they should allow. I would rather pay a one time fee of $2 to access those forums than to have to launch a different app for each forum I frequent......cost is the same to me, but to have all forum accounts under one app is easiest on members and would be in everyone's best interest

I don't understand why it would be so difficult to enable it here. It's ridiculous for every forum to have its own "app"

I use lots of forums from mobile devices and my laptops (PC + Mac) - topics include cars, food, firearms, beer, wine and tech related sites - I much prefer using the browser option on my iphone/ipad and every time I see a popup telling me they have an app, it annoys the crap out of me...

The reason I prefer full browser, even when I'm on the iphone is that the experience is the same from mac > PC > phone... having different apps on the phone slows me down - although I rarely use the forums when browsing without wifi - because I have wifi keys stored for almost everywhere I go - including the grocery store these days! ...
