Gotta say, this is the only forum software version I'm happy to use in mobile browsing mode (my own forum included). Works great.

vbulletin. I'm a co owner and the other owner/admin is looking at alternatives, not aggressively though. Might be an idea though- tapatalk doesn't allow direct media uploads, just hosted images on their site, and when they fold forums will be full of broken image links.

I don't think there is a converter from vBulletin to phpBB

Yes tapatalk IMO is trying to take over and if they fail its going to make a mess of forums!
