I hate Tapatalk's "improved" look

Geez, it was fine until recently, but the new version is visually cluttered, at least in a thread list view like "new threads." It's like they decided that the most important information about a thread is what sub-forum it's in, then hides the title under a grey bar and graphics. Terrible design. Why can't they leave well enough alone? I had just got used to the last set of "improvements", but I think I'm one again going to abandon posting from my cell.

If someone knows how to tweak the settings to clean up the screen, please let me know!

I don't know any way to tweak it. And I've looked. It's terrible and extremely space inefficient.

Agreed. And, it loads more slowly on my phone that the regular website does. I find myself looking at the regular version more now.

Unfortunately, I participate in a few forums that have *terrible* web UIs. The new Tapatalk version is still more tolerable. Barely.

Huh, what kind of phone do you have? My Windows Phone Tapatalk app hasn't changed recently.

Bounceswoosh, VolklGirl and I had this discussion on facebook about 3 weeks ago. I finally got it to show the new posts only.

Mine's on Android. iPad is fine so far (I rarely use it there).

I'm on Android too. You should consider yourself lucky that they haven't gotten around to redoing the Windows app.

I did figure out how to get it to show new posts--God forbid they should explain what those icons mean--but yeah, it's so inefficient that there's hardly any there there. I wonder if there's a way to see 'participated' posts? Anyhow, I'll be using the website more, but will still be much less likely to do anything on my phone or iPod.

I don't remember how I got there, but it was Volklgirl that found it.

Yeah, it's the @ symbol.
