    It will if you use it a lot. But so does many other apps. Like Facebook, Twitter, and others. Even my SwiftKey keyboard app uses battery. But it's not anything I worry about. I try to enjoy my phone. Odds are the battery will last until I upgrade next year. So, no worries! My TapaTalk shows 25% of my battery usage in the last 24 hours. Sounds about right. I'm on it a lot. Now if I were only on TapaTalk for 10 minutes and it showed 25%, then I'd worry.
    Hmmmn....I m not on tapatalk a lot but batt usage is 25%..I think because it's set to push notifications and to update every 30 mins...I m going to change these settings and see if usage changes!

    Might help. 25% may mean nothing if your not on your phone much in general. So if you're only using your phone 2 hours out of the day and only 30 minutes on TapaTalk, that's 25%. LOL

    I never have used push notifications for TapaTalk. All push notifications use battery. Even mail. But unless you plan to use your device longer than 2 years, there's no point being concerned about it.

    Keep in mind that % is for the previous 24 hours. So you may not have used TapaTalk as much during that time in relation to other apps. I don't put much stock in that battery usage list. I rarely look at it. If you really want to minimize your battery usage, do these things:
    1. Turn off as much as possible in location services.
    2. Turn your screen brightness down as much as you can stand it.
    3. Use as little Push notifications as possible.
    That list in Settings > Battery mostly only tells you what apps you use the most. There's really no indication if an app is a battery hog or not. My Wife doesn't come to the forums. Her thing is Facebook. So on her list Facebook is at the top.

    Just noticed that I'm getting notifications in Tapatalk letting me know I responded to a post. I mean seriously? Any way to turn that off. All I want are specific notifications for quotes, replies or messages. Not that I replied to a post that I know I replied to. Stupid in my opinion.

    I was seeing that too. Going back to the App Store version. Too many issues on the beta with the mod tools.

    It should turn on/off to enable/disable notifications.

    I set my links to go straight to Safari, and like it much better. Didn't care for it going to the TapaTalk built in browser.

    You can ask on the TapaTalk support Forum. Or request by email I guess. It's been in beta since December of 2014. LOL They have a beta limit of 2,000 testers with the Testflight app. So I don't know if there's any tester spots available. Add the TapaTalk forum and PM Winter.

    You're showing 2 accounts. One is jahdaa, the other is Butterfly 2. We think you need to sign out of TapaTalk. Delete the app. Reinstall it. Set up a new TapaTalk account with the Butterfly 2 iMore account. But you would need to add all your other forums back in. The current jahdaa account only shows about 5 posts.

    You set up as a new account under Butterfly 2? You need to use a different email and password.
    Thing is, I have no idea what has happened. You can't use the same log in as jahdaa.
    Can you list step by step what all has occurred?
