Back in April we told you that the official Tapatalk app, which is on iOS and Android now, is coming to Windows Phone 8. That app is now in private beta, which means only one thing: it’s close, darn close, to being released. Additionally, a Windows Phone 7.x version is in the works.
For all you forum hounds out there, having an official Tapatalk client is great for not only continuing the discussion on the go, but for discovering new ones as well. Tapatalk, as some of you may not know, powers many of today’s discussion forums on the ‘net—they’re like the Disqus of more in-depth, online communities.
So what else can we tell you about the app besides what you see in our video hands on? For one, it’ll be free. In fact, it will be the only free Tapatalk client out there (there will be an optional, paid ‘pro’ version coming later). Other features include:
- Tapatalk ID integration
- Access to all 60,000 internet communities
- Create New Topic / Reply Topic
Other features in the free version but not included in the initial release
- Private Messaging
- Push Notification
- Easy Photo Sharing
Finally, two other things:
- Release is slated for third week in June, give or take a few days and pending any last minute fixes
- The WPCentral forums will be pre-loaded in the app. Yowza!
So are you folks excited? Because you should be. The app is fast, fluid, very Modern UI/minimalist and it should be a great online tool. Stay tuned right here at Windows Phone Central for more information as we near release!
