For us forum junkies... Tapatalk 4 is on a sale this week (I think it's going on this week anyway). Price is 99 cents.

I have seen other mentions of this sale, so I don't think it's a special just for some people.

Edit: Tapatalk 4 shows up as on sale, but old Tapatalk is still $2.99 when I'm logged out of Google.

Reviews on the play store are quite mixed. what's the general opinion here? (Yes, I'm that cheap)

Personally I don't think it's much of an improvement from Tapatalk 2 (that I love to bits!).
For larger screen tablets (larger than 7") it does have a nice looking UI. But possibly more "pretty" that "good" IMHO.
For people who don't have any Tapatalk version it's a cheap way to get at least one version.

Tapatalk 4 - super launch sale!! $0.99. Was $4.99. Only one week. Upgrade Tapatalk 2 to Tapatalk 4 with HD tablet support for less than a dollar!
BTW, Tapatalk 2 is free on Amazon and iTunes. Google is still charging $2.99 for it.

They have finally allowed use of the HD on phones. Originally the HD was a money grabbing scheme that would not install on phones (forcing you to buy both - or so they expected), but now the HD will install and work on phones too, as all Android apps are supposed to. At $0.99, it's a good buy.

Is Tapatalk 2 the one I show as just Tapatalk Community Reader?

What's the difference between 2 & 4, from what I see not much.

Yeah, I do not understand the difference either.
Also, Amazon app store seems to have a totally different version: HD ver 1.x, in addition to the free 2.x version. A bit confusing.

And in my brief period of trying them, I really can't see the value. It seems that any device that can run Tapatalk can also browse the forums just fine the normal way.
Clearly some forum-savvy folks swear by it. Maybe I need a tutorial video or two.

Also, one of the few forums I frequent that supports it started reporting an error in Tapatalk and I had no idea what to do about it, so that's one reason I stopped trying them altogether.

We I mostly agree, but I have found with my older phone (so to be replaced) that is on Android 2.3 it is not always easy to reply in forums. sometimes I had to type out my message as a text then cut and paste. Sometimes that didn't work. Taptalk (the free) made that easier for me.

The only forum I frequent that uses Tapatalk is this one, but at least I stay up to date on my freebies while on the go

I have a love hate relationship with Tapatalk. I use it too for visiting MobileRead on tablet and phone devices. Unfortunately it's also one the most buggy software I have ever encountered (both client and server side). In the future we plan on making our site more "responsive" for mobile devices, meaning less dependency on Tapatalk.
