WinMo not done in the same way, but there is an "Application" called board express that seems to do the same.

Give it a try Barrie :) everyone should try everything once :)
My phone is an HTC 7 Trophy phone with a proper browser and file system that does all I want and syncronises properly with my computer network - without any "apps".

I'm usually on here from my proper computer although I can work it from my phone without any problems.

Well it has IE, less said about that the better :)

Wasn't saying anything to have a go Barrie, hope it didn't come across that way, but you asked what it was and suggested you couldn't get it, was just saying you can.

No offence taken, but what does it actually do?

It basically is a one stop portal to all your forums (if they are Tapatalk enabled) so it will send push notifications on various forums etc if you have messages and all that.

It also pulls the forums into an easy viewing format so you can read things much easier than wrapping in web browser.

I know most browsers wrap the text ok, but it is quite easier with Tapatalk.

Each to their own, I love it, some wont

Prior to the 'downtime' over the weekend when I clicked a link in a posting the link would open up in a new window.
Now when I click a link it goes to the website using the same window and I therefore lose the forum topic (yes I know i can backpage to it again)
Is this a standard feature of the new look forum or something I can change (could not spot any relevant options in the UCP tho) ?

There's another thread all about the downtime

http://babybmw.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=70806

In short, opening urls in a new window needs to be added back in again.
