Tapatalk 2, the premium edition of the original Tapatalk app, has just received its first major update. Released last January, Tapatalk 2 aggregates more than 50,000 communities around the Web and presents their forums and discussions in a streamlined mobile experience. The app's first major update brings a couple of significant new features as well as several notable improvements. First and foremost, Tapatalk 2 now comes with WordPress integration for communities that use 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 install the official Tapatalk plugin from WordPress.org. The other significant new feature in the new version of Tapatalk 2 is Dropbox integration. Earlier this month, Dropbox debuted a new API suite for easy syncing of files across various apps and devices. One of the first apps to take advantage of the new API suite is none other than the Dropbox-acquired Mailbox. And now, it's Tapatalk 2's turn to do so, thereby enabling you to upload photos from your Dropbox folders to forums and discussions. The newly updated Tapatalk 2 also includes the following enhancements:
Also including miscellaneous bug fixes and improvements, the new version of Tapatalk 2 is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $3.99 download. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
