Tapatalk for Windows Phone

This morning, the official Tapatalk client for Windows Phone (both 7.x and 8; optimized for WP8) has been released to the Store and is now available as part of an early-access program for enthusiast users.

Tapatalk is the leading standard for discussion forums, allowing users a common system by which to access and utilize internet communities. Official apps have been available on iOS and Android for some time but today, Windows Phone users finally get their due with an app built from the ground-up.

Windows Phone Central readers were treated to our sneak peek of the app a few weeks ago, where we noted that the app was close to release having been in a private beta.

App  description

Early access and an introductory price - $2.99

Tapatalk for Windows Phone

The app is being made available slightly ahead of schedule and will cost $2.99. While that seems expensive, the app will go FREE after one month (in addition, trial should be added too).

The developers are doing this for a few reasons, none of which are to hoodwink Windows Phone users:

  • Larger base of dedicated users who can provide feedback
  • Gives the developers some breathing room to fix bugs, tidy issues up, before it goes wide-release
  • Consider it donation-ware/support to the developers for their hard work

Indeed, being a part of the beta and seeing the intricacies involved with testing (quick: think of how many sites you know have support forums—now imagine getting them all to work within one client), we can vouch for the developers who put a tremendous effort into the app, resulting in a solid representation for Windows Phone.

Of course if you are a casual user, than paying $2.99 is probably not an option and that’s fine—this is being made for the “forum junkies” who want early access and a chance to test out the app before everyday folk get their hands on it.
