    You obviously know more of the experience than us hoi polloi, but the constant Crap-a-talk tag lines are truly annoying. as are the inmates that don't know how to turn them off! :lol3

    This is the first time I've used my phone browser for ADV. I've had tapatalk since before the upgrade.
    I must admit. Looks pretty good.
    Bear with me while I see how the emoticons work.
    :lol3. :y0!
    :*sip*

    Ok. I like it.
    How does the bandwidth compare between the 2?

    20171208_182150.jpg Now I see a hitch. Loading pics to tapatalk is easier. My last attempt at uploading to adv failed
    That worked!

    Once you get used to it uploading pictures is easy.

    What browser are you using?

    Chrome. The site looks beautiful. When I went to upload the pic it was my phone. Out of memory message. No I'm not buying a new $1000 phone to remove that issue.:lol3

    Have you deleted any pictures lately? If you can find 2 or 3 to get rid of, that may free up room. Are you trying to upload previously taken pictures or take one to upload?

    When I use ATK to free up some ram then I can upload ok. Just did it a few minutes ago.

    I've tried to upload images from my phone but get an error message that the file size is too large. Most of mine run 5-6MB, and ADV maximum size is 4MB IIRC.

    I think mine is more of an issue with all the bloat that Verizon puts on these phones. Tapatalk works thru it. The browser his the error message every other upload. Grr
    I think my next phone will be unlocked to eliminate all that bloat.

    Mine is Verizon as well. Maybe I'll try a smaller image and see if I can upload it from my phone.

    Mine are 8Mb pics. The error I'm getting is on the phone browser. Not from ADV.

    It should be 20mb. That's what I set it to long ago and unless someone changed it?

    No idea. It was quite some time ago, and from a different phone. I just tried to upload an image from my Galaxy S7 and now the upload pic function won't let me access the gallery where I store images! The only options are my camera or camcorder (which don't store images), and documents. :scratch

    No big deal, really, as I mostly use my computer and link to my SmugMug images.

    Go to the documents tab. Then you will see your gallery. More steps needed on the browser.

    Had to do a reset of my phone, so was logged out of ADV.

    My guess is the basement is driving advert selection somehow.

    First ad was for Fredricks of Hollywood. I' guessing we ain't their target audience.

    Next ad was for toilet paper...Perfect. :lol3

    Next was this one, that was all I could stand before I felt a bit like puking.

    The ads are based on your search history, I keep getting a Suzuki motorcycles ad.
