Tapatalk

Free version updated with new interface styling for devices on ICS and newer

Following the release of a new tablet-optimized Tapatalk HD earlier this year and an updated Tapatalk 4 for phones in August, Tapatalk is making its base app free in Google Play. What is now just called "Tapatalk" is the latest version 4 update, with the new "holo" styling and features, which was previously a paid application that was $4.99 at launch.

The folks over at Tapatalk are actually doing an interesting dual APK offering from one Play Store listing, which will give the older-style Tapatalk 2 app to those on Android 2.3 and earlier (for compatibility reasons), and the Tapatalk 4 app to anyone on ICS and above. If you're a traditionalist and want the classic Tapatalk app, you can download it from its support pages.

Those who would like premium features will now have access to Tapatalk Pro for $2.99, formerly known as Tapatalk HD. This version offers full tablet optimization, and Tapatalk says it will continue to roll out more premium features at no additional cost in the future.
