San Jose: Tapatalk 2, the best edition of the original Tapatalk app, has just obtained its first main update.
Released last January, Tapatalk 2 aggregates more than 50,000 communities across the Wen and presents their forums and discussions in a streamlined mobile experience.
The app’s initial major update brings a couple of major new features as well as several prominent improvements.
Primarily, Tapatalk 2 now comes with WordPress integration for communities that employ WordPress as their primary systems for blogs and articles. Note, though that in order to use this new feature for your community, you must first set up the official Tapatalk plugin from WordPress.org.
The other important and new feature in the new version of Tapatalk 2 is Dropbox integration.
Earlier July, Dropbox introduced a new API suite for easy syncing of files across various apps and devices. One of the first apps to take benefit of the new API suite is none other than the Dropbox-acquired Mailbox.
And now, its Tapatalk 2′s turn to do so, thus allowing you to upload photos from your Dropbox folders to forums and discussions.
The newly updated Tapatalk 2 also includes the following enhancements:
- Search Improvement: You can now search and filter topics within a category (i.e. a sub-forum) or search for specific post in a thread. Look for the search bar in the topic listing or discussion view.
- GIF Animation: Finally we support displaying GIF animation in discussion!
- Page Swipe: You can now swipe left or right to quickly change pages in a long discussion.
Also including various bug fixes and improvements, the new version of Tapatalk 2 is available now in the App Store. The app is friendly with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later.
