I have installed Tapatalk on my new Nexus 4, but whet it starts it says "Directory is currently unavailable, please check again later". It's been like this for two days. When I try to login, it just waits forever. I search the internet and the only explanation I found was that this error message can appear on some 3G networks. However, I'm using my home WiFi and on my tablet (Transformer Prime) Tapatalk connects to its directory with no problems.

Any ideas?

You may have some kind of FireWall like "DroidWall" or "Avast!" that is blocking the network access for this app.

Got it working now. Turns out it was Adblock Plus that was blocking Tapatalk. Seems to be a bit too aggressive.

If you have rooted the phone I recommend you "AdAway" instead of "AdBlock Plus":
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...?id=org.adaway

It's free and 100 times more reliable. You can use it even to block any malware site, not only ads, if you add to the list a site like:
http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/hosts

This app just changes the hosts file by one file with all trusted ads directions (depends of the downloaded hosts files you selected) pointing to 127.0.0.1 (loopback) so no way to connect to these directions again

Yes, I know. I use Adaway on my rooted tablet. However, I haven't rooted the N4, and I thought I'd give Adblock a try. It does work, but apart from blocking Tapatalk, it also messed up Google Play and occasionally other apps.
