Tapatalk is easily the most popular mobile forum browsing application for Android. It’s quite handy, with a great interface that makes any supported forum easy to navigate. Free to most forum owners, it’s very easy for an Admin to set up his site so that it’s users can feel at home while “on-the-go.” Today we’ve been given an update to the latest version 2.0, which is quite an improvement. Their forum illustrates their “timeline” and I’ll walk you through it a little bit.
Day 1 Revamped UI – the new layout is an improvement over previous version with the ICS style tab, revised color combo to make reading forums on Android more enjoyable
More Social: Improved support of Thanks and Likes, along with the new layout:
Day 2: Like and Thanks
Ability to Like and Thanks – supporting more forum system:
Day 3: Private Conversation
Private Conversation is now supported in additional to traditional Private Messages. Private Conversation is a thread-like conversation – both IPBoard and xenForo are supported – we also aim to migrate existing traditional PM-based forum system to this new interface.
Day 4: Account Sync
Starting in 2.0, your username and associated forums will be synced among your other devices, supporting both iOS and Android – also your username and forums will be restored after you uninstall and reinstall the app. Everything are transparent, you do not need to register any “Tapatalk ID” to get this to work. Also password are not stored in our server.
Day 5: Improved Image Upload – streamlined interface to provide faster upload with less taps
The official Changelog looks like this below.
