There is a free version of the Taptalk app that restricts posting. The full featured paid version is 2.99.

I installed the free version on my iPhone and it works well. Pretty neat interface. I am going to spend 2.99 for the paid version so I can make some smack down posts when I am away from home and you people get out of hand! :)

I'm not sure about the Iphone version, but the if you go to the Android market, you will have to pay for it.
The only way around this would be if your phone was rooted and you sideloaded the app.

Thats why I rooted my phone... if you get the apps outside of the Android market, you can't sideload them without root access.
Here's an app that will let you sideload apps without root.

My phone's so old it's got a DIAL!!!Well at least you have a dial. I was afraid that you were so far out there, that you still had a crank on the side.

BTW, I actually got pretty good at dialing one those phones by just tapping on the hook. One tap dial 1, two taps dial two, etc.

My sister used to win a lot of DJ records when we lived down the street from a radio station. Dial the entire number and hold the last one, count the seconds needed and release. You could hold the last one for more than a minute.

My brother recently got an iPod touch and I had him search up Tapatalk, I didn't know it was such an expensive app at $3! (When most apps are .99 I consider $3 high) But he also saw an app called TouchBB (http://www.messageforums.net/iphoneforumreader.php) which is free. Maybe it doesn't have as many features as Tapatalk I don't know but it is free for both the forum owner and the user.(except for possible ad or nag screen but the full version is only .99) All you have to do is put the touchbb.php file in the forum root and it is ready to go.

Learned something new... I didn't know I could take a screen shot on the iPhone; that will come in handy.

Attached is a screen shot of what the "unread" tab looks like in the "Latest" section of Taptalk. Each time I try to reload, it remains blank... The other two tabs "Participated" and "All" appear to be working fine.

Oddly, the red badge seems to always show 60 for me, just like in the screen shot you posted. Meaning if I go out and read a new topic through the forum tab it doesn't change my unread count from 60 on the blank unread tab. If I click mark all read it does reset the badge to zero though.
