As android Tapatalk Pro users transition to the one and only free Tapatalk app there may be a few questions along the way. Some features did not make it into the free app from the Pro app, any time this occurs we try to not make it a net negative for the user. A loss of a feature usually means it was more likely moved elsewhere or was so underused, that it became irrelevant to the momentum of development.
This post will be here to answer any of the functional or design questions you may have about the app, so feel free to comment and we will do our best to get to each one. To start it off here are the 2 main questions we are hearing:
Where is my inbox tab?
When a Pro user transitions to the free app, one of the 1st things he/she may notice is that the Inbox tab is noticeably missing. Actually this feature was not removed but relocated. The functionality of your inbox is still present in the Unread Notifications section at the top of the Feed tab. This freed up some visual elements across the main app interface and made other tabs larger for presses.
Where is the photo editor?
The avairy photo editor however IS a feature we decided to drop from the app. The stock Google photo editor has made leaps and bounds in terms of power and functionality and we have redesigned the app to take advantage a part of the Android OS that has eclipsed the old photo editor we used to include in the app. Functionality is not only retained but also improved, not to mention we spared a bit of app bloat.
Let us know any other questions you may have in the comment section!
