The iOS APP works very well. I like the tap feature.

No rope necessary . The apple app ( which is what I just updated ) works great. It's not the same and will take a little time to adjust but it's a far cry from the broken one it replaced.

I like the new app, the only negative point for me would be the size and light grayish color of the main text, I now need to wear my reading glasses, but no big deal. !!!

I had the same concern and just changed the font size to the largest they have. It helped me a lot.

I use Tapatalk for all my other forums that I am on (motorcycle, MR2, etc). I did a search for iRV2 and it wasn't listed so I am assuming this site doesn't use Tapatalk?

And to the comment about how they have recently updated the Tapatalk app, the only real difference that I have noted is the icon and some back ground issues. Everything still works the same for me including how it displays. I find it very efficient and is awesome when using a phone compared to the browser. They did have to update the app a couple of times though because for a few days there it was broken but now it is back to smooth sailing.

I haven't used the iRV2 app because it got such a terrible over all rating on GooglePlay so I can't comment on its effectiveness. My only concern judging by the posts I have read here is that it looks like someone is trying to port the android app from the apple one which is a recipe for disaster since the two formats represent completely different ends of the source code spectrum. Android is open source where Apple is "my way or the highway", "we will ban you from our forums if we don't like your attitude" (seen real world examples), and "we don't like your kind around here" type source code. That isn't to say they don't make reliable products but I find their products over priced and after decades of building my own software and computers I prefer the more open minded approach of Android. That being said the android app shouldn't try to mirror the apple app if this is the case. Probably why it fairs so poorly on the GooglePlay reviews.

How can I changed the font size on this app only?

Most of the reviews at Google Play are old reviews for the old app, not our new Tapatalk app that is only a few days old.

For Android users, go to the page labeled "Forums" with the 3 bars to the left.

Tap the 3 bars and then tap the "Gears" on the right for settings.

Font Size is one of the settings.
