What is the Android app for this forum?

When signing up for the forum on my Android tablet, I had a pop-up that asked me if I wanted to download an Android app, and unfortunately I didn't. On my tablet, I can't get the search window to work. It opens up and when I click inside to be able to type it in, it goes away. I'm hoping the compatible Android app won't do this. Can anyone tell me what the correct app is?

Thanks

Hmmm.. I'm typing on an Android tablet right now. Have not downloaded any forum app. Not sure why you're having a problem. Have you double checked your settings?
And welcome to the forum.

Joe - thanks for the welcome. Have checked settings and cant resolve it. I'm on the Asus so maybe it is specific to this tablet. I am a member of other forums and havent had this problem before.

That's a little curious. I don't recall being asked to install an app for this forum. I'm using an el cheapo Android that was'just a little over $100.00. I can do pretty much everything except hyperlink. Just haven't taken the time to learn how. But still if your settimg are correct ...
Maybe ask someone younger. I'm 60 and not lots of help with modern technology. Sorry.

I'm no tech wizard, but I believe that the app is call Tapatalk or tap talk, something on that order.

That said, most tablets will convert a website into the "mobile" version. It's an abbreviation of the full website, and chances are that is why you are not able to use search function.

If you tap on the address bar, you should notice that the address is converted from http://www.xyz...., into http://m.xyz.... The "m" references the mobile platform version, and can be circumvented on some platforms, by simply replacing it with "www." I know that this works on iOS platforms, I not as familiar with the Androids.

Hope it helps.

I downloaded Tapatalk, which is for Android and various online forums. Could not find the Snowblower forum, either by searching or browsing a whole l I st that they show are compatible.

Have you attempted to clear the forum out of the browser history?

It might reset the popup response that you choose. Again, I am just guessing.
