Do any of you use this? It's a free desktop app that lets you sign and post to message board forums that use Tapatalk and vBulletin. I think that if they use Tapatalk that includes Xenforo but if a Xenforo forum isn't connected to Tapatalk then it doesn't work. I haven't tried it out yet. http://www.owlclient.com/
Yeah, it's still very much a pre-1.0 product. A lot of work remains to be done on the Tapatalk functionality. The reason Joe's board (and some others) is that Owl will use vBulletin (right now 3.x only) directly to gets its info.
Owl will also use parsers to basically do an HTML scrape of data from boards that don't have Tapatalk installed. Because it's just me (and since Joe is too lazy to help! :shakefist: ) the only parser that ships with Owl is for vBulletin 3.x. This is why you were seeing images and markup when you viewed JUOT in Owl, since Owl wasn't using Tapatalk but was using vBulletin.
I hope to have vBulletin 4.x and XF support before 1.0.
