    .... quote long OPs, paragraph after paragraph, when you are the first to reply? Or even tenth to reply? It's quite apparent when you are addressing the initial query, isn't it? All the scrolling required when using the phone app can be avoided.

    Don't quote me on this. :p
    GO...... /thread.

    I have to now with the new app that crashes constantly.
    My phone is useless now as far as TB is concerned. I even have to take a magazine with me to the bathroom, haven't had to do that for years.

    Hmmm the new tapa talk app for iPhone works great not like the old one.

    Sure but the crux is there's no need to Quote the OP. that's what the thread topic is: THE OP.

    It works for you?
    I never had a problem with the old one. What iPhone are you using?
    There are a couple of threads going about how many people are having problems.

    I was trying to help solve your scrolling problem. Which seemed like the main issue.

    Why not?

    So that people know I am not referring to the 8 people before me.

    Not always. If Im typing, yeah, but not every one here is capable of coherence.

    Who uses thats? Not me!




    My point, exactly.

    Use the mobile web instead of the app. Apps are stupid.

    Tapas are great!

    People do lots of things they dont need to do.

    I'll stop now, though.

    I quote so it's easy for someone to see who I am replying to. Unfortunately my Tapa app doesn't show who is quoted but I would imagine it eases someone's reading.

    Makes it easier for me to remember what the heck I was going to say in response, especially if it was a long quote.
