I only installed the "RO" version (free), so I can't post from it. I have an issue with paying someone for an application that rides on someone's free application. If I really want to post from my iPod I'll use the browser. I've already been using it to view the forums and while not ideal it does work.

I agree with you Jason, the app does allow you to post on any number of forums where this app has been installed. I'm looking into ways to buy credits for this app for forum members.

In the mean time please let me know if Tapatalk is much better than viewing this site in a Safari browser.

I've got Tapatalk on my iPhone as well, just the free version. Seems the full version is free on Android but not for iPhone.

However, it does make navigation much easier. I'll probably spring for the full version as many of the forums I'm on use it.

After the server upgrade I reinstalled Tapatalk and discovered that the price on Android is down a dollar to $1.99. So far I'm quite pleased with the ease of installation and capability of this app.

I'm still looking for a way to offer free downloads of this app through Tapatalk and they are looking into it as that is something that many other forum admins would like to see.

I'm of two opinions:

1) on my Blackberry, the most significant use for the website that I have is "on the spot" research of a rum I might not be too familiar with, i.e., in a liquor store and I stumble on something and want a little more info before I buy it. With that in mind, a mobile site that only had reviews would be fine with me.
2) the coolest mobile site I've ever seen is BlackberryOS, a tech website. They actually have a mobile app with different sub-icons to access different parts of the site. you can see a screen cap here if you want. That may be WAY more than you want, but it sure is cool.

In the end, though, no matter what you do (or don't), I know I speak for a lot of us when I say we REALLY appreciate the site and all the work you put into it!

I'm thinking along the lines of reviews.ministryofrum.com that would be a stripped down site with just rum details and reviews from members with the bottle shot at the bottom of the page.

Tapatalk has a Blackberry app but Tapatalk is designed for forums and not websites.

I've been using a Droid less than a week so I'm still figuring out what works and doesn't seem to work at all in regards to mobile web site browsers.

Tapatalk is now free for Nokia mobile phones and there is a free download for Blackberry users as well.
