Free Open Beta for Tapatalk 2
Most users have heard of Tapatalk. For those who haven’t, it is a forum browser for mobile devices that allows users to connect with many forums with a single user interface. In fact, our own XDA forum app is based on Tapatalk.
Recently, Tapatalk began the open beta for version two of it’s popular forum app, aptly named Tapatalk 2. XDA Senior Member BurnRubber90 was kind enough to post links to the open public beta for users to try out. So far, the feedback seems great. The beta, now in its 4th version, has fixed common bugs such as tablet incompatibility and various force close issues. There will be even more bugs squashed prior the final release. Says BurnRubber90 via Taptalk:
Tapatalk contains all the features and capabilities found in your favorite browser but in a simple, straight-forward delivery. Easily see who is online, view board statistics, and even user profiles all without waiting for your phone’s browser to connect to the Internet. Give it a try today.
