I have the lite one and I found the group. I just typed in prison talk online and it came up on mine.

DO NOT PAY for an APP for PTO.. That isn't how it should be setup.

I finally got access to the iOS version and I'm NOT happy with it. It works but I hope it will be better. I'll contact Tapatalk in a few to discuss things. I couldn't find it on either app store and it wasn't as branded as I thought it would be, though that may be my fault not having time to research more. It took me a while to find it searching. It should be at the top of the www.prisontalk.com/forums page for download / notice when you view via a mobile device. I'm unable to download Android at this time.

That's where "PTO" (popular acronym for our community) came from.. Originally, our domain name was PrisonTalkOnline but Prisontalk.com became available and we've used it for most of its existence.. I didn't know they'd file it like that.. Thanks for pointing that out so I can address that as well.

My iPhone is too old, but I don't want to part with it as I like how small it is.

iPhone 2s? They were really cute! Or was that the 3?

David, I downloaded the Android version. It doesn't allow for staff functions.

I'm glad to know it can be downloaded. I wasn't able to via my phone. I've had some things going on outside of PTO but tomorrow I'm going to get with them and find out what is going on. There are some errors coming up on my stats page. I appreciate the feedback!

the app is called tapatalk.. it's free to download & when you sign up search "prison talk" & it'll come up as "prison talk online", then you sign into the forum with your username & password for the PTO website.

Yes, but it should be temporary. Working on that.
The chat is unsupported by us.

Oh...I don't like it. I'm so used to using the site on my iPad on chrome that it looks very hard to keep track of things. Maybe I'll get used to it.

Andy,
You can still use it the same way as before, right? Admittedly, I have not done much testing, so I am curious.
Thanks,
David

David,
Just mentioned this on the staff forum but I'll mention it here too for people who are curious about how the app enhances the experience.
It's definitely a bit of a different system of organization, but one little feature I've discovered the last couple of days is a little chat room. A few of us have been using it and it seems like something that people like. Might be something to check out. For some, that feature alone might be worth getting TapATalk.
