    Android app works very well on my galaxy s6. Metro PCS is the phone company.

    Well that is a welcome change. When I previously looked at it there was an annual and monthly charge.

    That's what I do, I just use Chrome on my tablet, and phone, works good, I very seldom use my phone for the internet but use the tablet a lot, I don't like installing a bunch of apps for everything, maybe it's just me but I don't think it's necessary

    I do the same thing-- chrome for the win! I find if you never close the FHC tab you don't actually need an icon for it...

    I just have a bookmark for it and I never log out.
    Too many apps installed on your mobile device can just cause all kinds problems and just take up space.
    I have never used tapatalk on any form

    This is what I do. My problem with this is that chrome is slower than TT and it takes a lot of memory on a phone to run chrome and takes a lot more RAM to run chrome as well.

    TT is really easy to use. Actually easier to use to me...the mobile version is not hard though. But TT is less busy and loads faster.

    Its probably my phone with too much stuff on it but chrome crashes and acts funny...sometimes not allowing pictures to be added. Or they take a long time. The TT app seems to take pics very fast. Maybe it is compressing them where FHC is not? J dont know. I am not a tech junkie though.

    The main benefit I find with TT is the more instant notifications. Sometimes the emails are instantaneous. Sometimes they lag 5-15 mins I noticed and seems like just last week there was a day or two that no email notifications went out. I like the little icon it puts in my notification tray for notifications from TT. Maybe its just a personal preference? Just like I personally dont like the FHC app. I dont like that it hides the top. I like to pull down and see things like email preview or like to watch texts scroll by in real time etc. Others dont mind...for me its a deal breaker. That and I think I found a few other things I didnt like. Chrome is way better to me. So for now I keep viewing as I did before.

    After all the facts that everyone posted, Adam really looked into it.. It appears in the last couple years that there has been a lot of improvements.

    We hope that everyone that uses it likes it.

    Thats the good thing. Choice!!! You like Chrome. Cool continue using it. You like TT now we can use it. Or you want to use some of both...have at it. Now I just have to get more use to this new format of TT. It has gonna through some major changes in the last year or so.

    I may even dump chrome from my phone now! Its a memory hawg!

    You spoke, we heard, and Adam did some research.

    Glad you all like it. I have yet to try it here. It's been several years since I tried to use it. I was never really a fan. But maybe things have changed? My phone is pretty large and this forum software is very mobile friendly.

    TT is totally different than it was a few years ago Dex. The only thing that is the same is the way the posts look when your actually reading them individually.

    I still use this app all the time for the cord calc. It is very handy.
