Just wanted to make a dedicated thread for this. The apps we have are currently not working. The company that develops these apps is aware of the problems and is working on a solution.

 

I'll update this thread as needed with any future updates.

 

In the meantime, if you are on a mobile device, this new forum software has a great mobile theme which might load automatically when you access the site through a browser on a smartphone, otherwise you can change the theme on the bottom left of every page.

 

Rest assured, we'll either get the app fixed ASAP, or I'll simply dump these developers and we can have a replacement app for both Android and iOS as soon as Google & Apple approve it. Just please have patience for the next few days while we try to get the current app up and running on the new software.

For Android users, here are some temporary (or possibly permanent if we can't get the current app fixed...) GD apps you can use while we work on the existing apps:

Download Link: http://tapatalk.com/...30702110757.apk

For those with Android 4.0 or later who want to try a newer beta version, here is a link to that version:
http://tapatalk.com/...2110757-ics.apk

Your device may not allow installation of non-market apps. You can enable it by following the instructions here:

http://www.tech-reci...on-market-apps/

These are GottaDeal-branded apps from the makers of the popular Tapatalk app. You'll have to uninstall the existing app to install these.

If these become permanent, we'll put them in the Google Play Store, but until then you can get them right here.

Not getting much help from our current developers so we are going to proceed with getting the new Tapatalk-developed GD apps in the iOS and Android app stores ASAP. With this developer we will also possibly be able to have a Windows Phone app in the future as well. The current apps will eventually disappear from the stores once the new ones are approved. In the meantime while we wait for the new apps to be approved you can always download the generic Tapatalk app and you should be able to find GD in the directory.

Good to know. I've got a Windows phone now, so I can't wait.

For now we should work with the regular Windows Phone Tapatalk app. Don't know if they have a free version of that or not, but it's a useful app either way if you use a lot of forums.

For now it's $2.99 for Windows Phone, but they are promising it will be free soon. My husband has it on his Windows phone, and I've used it, and it works well.

Just an update: Apple has been having some security issues with their developer portal for the last week (search Google for full details), so we have been unable to get the replacement app uploaded. Once they have reopened the site we'll get the new apps up ASAP, both iOS and Android.

Any update on the App function? I can't get to pages in the threads-I keep getting "Page not found." And no links are available in anyone's posts...they are all in HTML code.

Thanks Brad for the tip about Tapatalk. I couldn't get my Gottadeal fix on my iPhone with the regular app due to the recent issues. Downloaded Tapatalk and I can see the pictures and links again!!

Just an update. The new GD app is now on the Google Play Store and the Amazon App Store. The Apple iOS version is in the process of being approved by Apple.

 

The Android version requires Android 4.0 or later. If you have an older version of Android, I'll be posting a link to an older version that will work with your device. Once the iOS app is approved I'll make a more formal announcement with links to everything but until then I wanted to post this update.

Thanks for the update Brad.

 

I've upgraded to Tapatalk 4.0 and have been using that.

 

I'll check out the new GD app tonight.

New apps are available. Get the links here:

 

http://gottadeal.com/App

 

 

 

The Android app only works with Android 4.0 or later. For those of you on older Android devices (prior to Android 4.0), you can download this version of the app directly and install it on your device:

 

http://tapatalk.com/...30819120807.apk

 

Note that your device may not allow installation of non-market apps. You can enable that functionality by following the instructions here:

I love these new apps, so much better than the last ones. Great work, Brad!

Is anyone else having issues with the new apps? After the last update (few days ago for the app) I can't seem to get anything at all to work. It just sits there and spins. This is on iOS7
