I think Tapatalk is a decent app for reading forums on your mobile device. It's not perfect ... it can't convert many PC emojis to equivalent on mobile devices (e.g. :raises: ) still it's pretty good at checking latest content on SGU forums during my work breaks.

My question is what other forums should I subscribe to that is friendly to this app?

Alternatively, is there another app I should be using that's even better?

Thx in advance.

Hmm. It does appear to be less unusable than the last time I tried it.

I still see no control over the order of posts (I want the most recent first), or any way to show just the unread posts. Am I missing something?

Yep. Select timeline from the top. It should be just to the right of "Subforum"

There is also an "Unread" tab.

Found it. Not the most friendly interface on Android.

If you slide the menu to the right you can select what you want displayed. Unread and participated do example (on the iPhone).

Anyone have issues with Tapatalk? 

I’m finding it often doesn’t show the last post in a topic. I’ll see the preview but when I go to the post and scroll down there’s empty white space where the last post should be.

Also this may be something the SGU forum administrators can help with.

In Tapatalk as soon as you start typing in the search field it starts searching for what you’ve entered as you type it.

But each new character you add is considered a separate search, so anytime I search for a word or phrase I get the alert that my last search was less than 5 seconds ago.
