Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

This is a pretty slick app that I have been using for a week or so now on this and other board type sites.

It's great - it cuts down on how long it takes to find and read new posts and  makes reading them much more enjoyable as well.

I am using an iPod Touch, but I think it is available for most platforms as well.
 
Most apps are so-so, but this one is quite useful.

I tried it a while back but couldn't see any advantage over using the forum in the browser. Am I missing something?

After reading how thoroughly Tapa Talk can brick a phone, I decided not to use it. Bios and all can be gone in a flash.  Huh

It's just easier/faster. It doesn't do anything that a browser doesn't do other than make the text easier to read (which you can do with the browser - just more work pinching and tapping).

I imagine that it does other things like new post modifications, but I haven't looked into that yet.

Had not heard that.

I have no concerns with the iPhone or touch - I've installed hundreds of apps with no issues.

Hadn't heard of it bricking a phone either and I read a lot of the Android news and forums, overall it's gotten good reviews in the Market, but I see some complaints. I don't recall if I installed it or just reviewed it but decided it wasn't for me. I don't like the "show only new posts" type options personally, I might read the forum a few times a day but the 70's were hard on me and I have to review back in a topic to keep things in context or at least in whatever tenuous grasp on reality I've retained. And it sounds like it doesn't include any moderator tools for "Mod's" how would we keep you guys in line?
 
Plus it made the forum look different, didn't feel like home in it  Cheesy

There are a few ways you can view the forums. I think the Latest tab might be the default. But you can veiw different forums just as well.

And it sounds like it doesn't include any moderator tools for "Mod's" how would we keep you guys in line?
I agree. It would be _much_ better if it had this capability.
 
It does make reading forums easier then viewing in a phone browser. Much easier to move around... just takes a few uses to get used to the layout. It's well supported and additions are made all of the time (I know... I need to update 3 or 4 forums every time a forum update is released).
