No advantage for us in the app not being free, I promise.

No offense taken. In fact, we would like to offer the app for free.

There is also the option for us to purchase a branded version that would not only make us more visible in the App store but also allow us to offer the app for free to you. The only reason we have been hesitant to go with that option is because it doesn't receive the same update treatment as the official Tapatalk version does. Tapatalk people are currently in the process of reviewing this update cycle, and once it is more favorable, we'll definitely go this route.

Interesting, I never heard of TouchBB before. It seems they only offer an iPhone app though. There is also Forum Runner, but we opted for Tapatalk instead.

My biggest complaint with TapaTalk is that, by default, seemingly every forum that I visit on my phone creates a popup to tell me that they have an app and that I should download it. It's annoying.
100% agreed. We opted to remove the popup (there were justified complaints), and replaced it with a forum notice if a mobile device is detected.

I don't. Don't have a tablet either, but I am eyeing the Nexus 7.
