Yes it is! :D I guess we should post in News about it, once we finish up with some other changes.

EDIT: Love this thing. Helps me keep up with Omnimaga again, finally.

Here are the links to download the tapatalk app. If you put it in news, you can put these 2 links on it.

Yeah I heard it was added. Great addition for mobile users. :) (although it would be great if there was a free alternative too)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Android users could try Convo. Its perfectly free, but I don't like it as much. I went ahead and paid $3 to support tapatalk and get the market app. :-)

That's what I tried but I didn't liked it that much either, so I might go to the official Tapatalk.

If you are a big forum browser like I am, the $3 is worth it. You could also wait for the app to go on sale if you really wanted to. :)

Just look at my post count lol :P

But the problem here is that the Android Market only accepts credit cards...

Yeah. It still bugs me that they don't carry prepaid cards for the market. You could go out and buy a generic prepaid visa though. That's what I usually do.

Yeah it sucks. It's not as bad as Apple store, though, which requires either a credit card or a pre-paid card EVEN if you want to download something that is free.

Yeah, that's what really sucks about the whole thing—on the App Store (and to a lesser extent the Android Market), you really get what you pay for. Seems like there was once a "free" alternative to Tapatalk, except that you couldn't even reply to topics unless you paid for an upgrade.

Same deal with IRC clients, for instance. Colloquy sounds like a great client from the screenshots and reviews, but it's paid, of course. There are free alternatives, but they're incomplete at best, breaking the connection whenever the device is in standby mode, for example. There's even a "free" IRC client that'll connect you to a random IRC network unless you upgrade x.x

You just won't find any decent free programs for a platform when it costs a hundred dollars a year just to be allowed to develop for that platform. Imagine if all forms of programming on TI calculators were subject to a $99 annual fee, and hacks like Ndless were illegal. Thing anyone would still have made any games?

(Funnily enough, the one exception I've found so far in terms of iOS is the free port of Block Dude (yes, the one in PuzzPack), which is almost definitely better than the paid version by a different porter.)
Yeah it sucks. It's not as bad as Apple store, though, which requires either a credit card or a pre-paid card EVEN if you want to download something that is free.
Lucky I got an Apple ID back before they had that requirement—I had no need for one then, but I'm sure glad I have it now XD

Well with android you can also use different markets. For instance, you could buy an amazon gift card and use it on the amazon app store for android. I don't understand why apple charges app makers so much. That's the one thing keeping me away from iOS developing. And the fact that the app must be made on a Mac, as there is no windows sdk. If TI were to do something like that, it would be a real shame. I would miss gbc4cx too much. :-\

Well for a period of time we feared the official Lua SDK would be paid, because the original 83+ SDK was, early on.
