Tapatalk HD Beta Released to Google Play, Forum Fans With Tablets Rejoice


Folks who spend time on forums throughout the web already know about Tapatalk. It’s the go-to app to get your fill of the message boards through your mobile device, but until now, the app wasn’t very hot on Android tablets. Consider that officially changed thanks to the release of Tapatalk HD Beta through Google Play. 


  • New – Gallery view on bigger forums, discover new discussions by photos
  • New – Push Notification – instant notification of subscribed topics, private messages, likes received, mentioned, and more!
  • Portrait and Landscape view optimized
  • Forum Moderation – stick, open, close, delete, ban and more
  • Dark and Light themes

…and all the features you would find from the already amazing Tapatalk Forum App for phone!

It’s a beta, but the developer says we should expect to see the full version sometime in January of 2013. Let us know what you think down below.

Cheers @WinDroidGuy!

    If I were running a forum or community focused on mobile devices, I would make it my top priority to develop a responsive theme/skin for the forum software. I’m amazed that nobody seems to be doing this.

    Not compatible with my vzw gnex running 4.2.1

    • will bartlett

      really? i didnt know that the gnex was a tablet.

    • I don’t usually advocate trolling, but you deserve every insult you receive.

      • Thomas

        OMG…LMAO !! Dude..very funny !!

      • Justin Swanson

        It’s very possible he just misread that it was only for tablets…

    • Its for tablets -_-

      • Cowboydroid

        Tapatalk is doing it wrong if they’re making two separate apps for the same service. Someone should let them know about fragments…

        • someone should be happy that developers are making tablet apps now.

          • Cowboydroid

            Two years after tablets hit the market? Yes, I guess I should be glad they’re doing their jobs and actually responding to the market, finally.

            Of all technical professions, it seems like software development is the laziest, full of the most excuses for simply not doing something, or doing it poorly. Maybe that’s just the nature of their profession, not producing any physical, tangible goods, and always throwing disclaimers on almost 100% of their work. I can’t think of another profession that operates in a similar manner, except maybe politics.

    I can’t wait to try this out on the Droid Life forums !!! Oh wait…never mind.

      Check out their Google Communities
      Basically, it’s the same thing

        I even made a post on there asking if people would stop complaining about the lack of forums… looks like i got my answer.

  • mustbepbs

    Why oh why is there no Ignore feature in Tapatalk? It doesn’t even recognize who’s ignored on the actual forum website in your account settings. This is my biggest annoyance with Tapatalk!

    • Agreed. Luckily though, most of my forum usage is with grown-ups…so I generally don’t need to ignore anyone.

    • BaconEater

      Biggest annoyance is the stupid a ss default sig they enable by default

  • I can’t wait to get home and use this on my TF Prime!

  • TurdFerguson1

    Oh snap!!! First!!!
