Droid X Forums Android App!
Today, we are excited to announce the official Droid X Forums Android App! TapaTalk has been one of the most widely used applications by our membership to access the forum on the go. We thought what better way to give back to the community than to make a FULL Version available for use on the site for free. We've done just that by partnering up with Tapatalk to bring you a DroidXForums.com branded version of the TapaTalk Professional App - at zero cost.

How can you get it?
You can get the app a number of ways... simply load up your marketplace and search for "Droid X Forums" and our app should be the first one listed (created by Droid Network). Or you could use the QR code or direct link as well (market://search?q=%22Droid%20X%20Forums%22).

We do ask that if you download the app to please rate it as well... while we prefer 5 star ratings (Thanks!) all we ask is that you rate the app and give us some feedback so we know if you are enjoying it or how we can approve it. To rate it please follow these steps:


Download the App via the Marketplace
Install the App
Run the App
Exit the App
Go back into the Marketplace and find the App
Click on the "My Review" portion where the stars are and provide a rating

Keep in mind that this is very similar to the Tapatalk Pro app (same thing actually) but it's free where as Tapatalk Pro is a paid app... this only works with Droid X but it should save our users from having to pay for Tapatalk themselves. Hope this helps.

When you open that tab, the number on the right, shows "green" if there is new posts...in addition the app updates upon each time it is opened or you can press the hard menu key to refresh...

So in the settings you can turn on notifications. Is this for when someone replies to a thread you have posted in? I have had it enabled for an hour or so and am not seeing any notifications. Any suggestions?

Once you make the setting you want, log out and log back in to see if it will notify you...I get notification of PMs via the app - mine is set on 30 minutes...

I just found one issue with this. I have it defaulted to "latest" when you open the app. When on that page if you hit the "all" tab, it freezes until you hit "menu" or "forum" then it will load "all".
Anyone else noticing this?
EDIT: its working now... NVM.

Yes - it seems a bit "finicky" at times...sometimes, it won't open unless like you say, you tap something else...

The app is free. Ads help support free apps. I personally don't see how people are really bothered by ads. I have not come across one single app that has bothersome ads. Most are subtle and you barely notice they are there.

+1 to this.

People gotta get paid, whether it's directly from my pocket (paid app) or a free app (with ads) it's all the same.

I'm with Garemlin, I've yet to see ads that are intrusive or annoying, yea they're there, but I just ignore them.

.... side note... look up the Samsung Continuum.... it's got a double display... the second one is a small strip on the bottom of the face of the phone.... ad space??? hmmm. Food for thought.

I did find a video player that put ads at the top and bottom of the screen. You could only see a sliver of the video itself. Naturally, I uninstalled it. But I though I would just throw in my 2 cents. :)

Seems like a pretty great app except that I have the same problem that some of the other posters have. Whenever it is on the latest tab...if you try to move over to "all" then it wont move unless you click on something else.

Really have to thank the forums and tap talk for the free app. I was just about to buy tap talk; it would have been my first app purchase on my new droid.

Love the sexy splash screen, very slick!

Designer note: there seems to be a small line at the top of the icon that was not deleted when it was created. Nothing to mess up functionality but if there is an update, it should be erased.

Sorry, can't help it, it's my job to look for things like that when I'm creating things. :)

Not sure but it doesn't keep the phone awake. I have been checking it with spare parts. Great app! The more I use it the more I love it!!

What error message are you receiving? You might uninstall / reinstall and see if that helps...

Also, are you using the DroidXForums specific app or the Tapatalk / Tapatalk Pro app?

Odd thing, when clicking a link to another thread in the forum, I get a pop up asking which program I want to use, none of which is the Droid X Forum application. Is this a glitch or something happening since I switched ROMs to RubiX 1.6?

I've been using it since it was announced and it's really nice. Two things I did notice are clicking on the top tabs, like latest and participated, seems to be buggy. I will tap and it won't do anything sometimes. Also, the icon has a 1 pixel line on top of it. Noticeable on light wallpapers and when you click "more" and see the icon on screen within the app. Either way, it's still a really great app and real easy to use.
