Dunno about Android but on iOS you just tap the 'share' icon and choose 'add to homescreen'.
Helps to do this as well

would that be so hard to do? :shock:
That's not an 'app', of course, but a just a bookmark to your forum which has an icon like an app icon... :)

Update - Privacy and Security concerns with Tapatalk.


Firstly, Tapatalk puts its own advertising into your forums - even if the setting is off and even with paid versions. Besides affecting revenue, if you rely on advertising to cover costs, the ethical question is whether the injected advertisements are suitable for your forum content and your own views.

The big issue and concern with Tapatalk is user tracking. With the new European laws on data protection, this has come into focus recently as international businesses and organisations comply. Ethical organisations and businesses do not sell customer data without their knowledge and explicit content

Tapatalk gathers and sell this user data, even when the app is off. So as a forum manager, if you support tapatalk, you are also supporting the practice of tapatalk gathering and selling the following user data.

- IP Address
- Type of device
- Browser information
- Demographic data
- Profile Data
- Specific identity data for the device including identifider, brand, model, operating system
- GPS Data / Location
- Strength of wireless (WLAN / Bluetooth)
- Battery percent

There are various repercussions from your own legal liability as a forum manager / owner through to your opinion whether it is fair and acceptable behaviour. It is worth considering these details if you want to start or continue supporting tapatalk or other forum apps.

All this should and could be notified to the Office of the GDPR Supervisor.
If everything is true (I'm a guarantor) it's unacceptable.
Not to mention the code of that software, which is a real insult IMHO.
