Best Windows 8 Apps
11 December 2015
With the latest From summer 2015 update it really sucks!!
WTF it was really good level until the latest date.
Fix it or is completely useless and broken as it is today.
Shame so many months and still not give us proper and functional version.

App now locks me out until I create a Tapatalk ID or log in with Facebook. This has always been optional in the past. I already have accounts with the forums I frequent. That should be enough.

Loved this app on Android and it seems to be even better and less "laggy" on Windows 8.1. I'm using this on all my Surface devices (v1 and v3Pro) and it helps me keep in touch with all my forums.
I'm glad it is ad-free (for now) the developer should keep it this way. I paid for the one on Android and it needs to be ad-free. Mobile ads are horrible, non-relevant and ruin the user experience.

I use this on IOS with no issues. I just tried it for my Win8 laptop and it is just about worthless. I can login and read my forum, but:
- it doesn't show me threads I have participated in, or unread threads, or a timeline
- it won't show the admin boards I am part of
- it doesn't show any of my PM's
It is really frustrating how little development effort companies put into the Windows platform.

I usually go to a few specific forums when browsing the internet. The tapatalk helps me quickly discover new forums in the areas that I'm interested in: mostly computer stuff, games, movies and cars.
Initially, the landing screen came up, but clicking on a category took me to a blank screen. Relaunching the app fixed the problem.
The UI feels like it could use some improvement, but it is functional and I would definitely keep this app pinned!
Great app to help me keep up with my various interests on my Surface Pro 3.
I have recently started getting into photography and these forums are really helpful as I start to learn the basics about my new DSLR and also techniques to make my shots tell a unique story!
This app was awesome! Definitely recommend people to download and give kudos!
This app is very helpful in following discussion topics in forums based on my interests. It's easy to select topics and keep track of discussion threads.

I like being able to talk to friends via tapatalk
Use it to talk to friends in other countries, works great!
New great layout with easier navigation.
Ive been using the Metro app for about a year and love it. Especially the [NOW REMOVED] preview pane in where you can click a thread, and on the right a new pane opens to allow you to scroll through the thread. But now that is gone. And the thread list doesn't keep the previous position which makes it even more annoying. Please revert back to the preview plane view.
provoded to be very useful

the visual update is welcome,however the performance downgrade is disappointed.

While I love the app, it seems to have problems running on surface Pro 3 with 8.1 pro. App is non-responsive when opened and then will not let me log in. Please fix.
1 star. Make this app useable.

I really enjoy being able to easily find new forums about things I'm interested in.
With the latest update I now can no longer turn off push notifications!
What happened? Why are there all these extra columns. Too busy and a mess.

That's what happens when the user does not have the option to update.
Nice seeing some similarities w/ the Phone app now
Downloaded the app. Signed in. When I click to either search for a forum I follow or even any of the forums or topics listed, it goes to a blank Tapa screen and zero information comes up. Waste of time. Uninstalling it now.
The layout was much better before the latest update. Not liking the columns of timeline, unread etc... on my SP3. It was better the way it was.

I don't have the same issues that others are talking about. Looks more like the Android and iOS versions now. Looking forward to what Tapatalk does on Windows 10 in the future. Thanks for the update.

Before today's update it was "working" (there were some issues like gifs no moving, not remembering the last unread post, etc.). However after updating today, there are several issues like: tablet mode disappeared (in my surface pro I don't see the split window anymore), there is no more subscribed section (now there is a "home" and the subscribed forums are almost at the end. Every time you open a forum and you want to go back, you have to scroll again), embedded YouTube videos disappeared, gigantic images, gifs open in the web browser.

App doesn't seem to get past the loading screen on the Surface 3.

I love this app, I would give a five star review but when the app is full screen the posts do not fit the page. they are to big and you cant scroll to see the whole post. this happens with all of my forums so its not specific. Other than that its an awesome app.
