As you probably know, Tapatalk is an application to allow access to Internet forums on mobile devices, the forum software systems supported by Tapatalk being phpBB3, vBulletin, xenForo, IPBoard, Simple Machines Forum, MyBB, bbPress, Kunena, Vanilla, and Drupal. Now, you will be glad to hear that the app is available as an universal app in the Windows Store for both Windows Phone and regular Windows users.

It’s funny that Tapatalk didn’t update its changelog to mark the change, but it has changed its icon to ‘Get once, download on compatible Windows Phones too.’ Here’s how the official description of the app sounds like:

Discover robust online communities and stay connected with your favorite forums on-the-go with this award-winning mobile app. Tapatalk is the only mobile app combining over 50,000 internet communities in a streamlined mobile experience. Fast and accessible features allow you to read posts, share photos, and keep updated on private messages in all your forum communities within a single mobile app.

Tapatalk aggregates content from a network of communities that cover a wide variety of interests, from automotive to parenting, gardening to hiking – You will find a forum that matches your interests full of fellow enthusiasts that share your passion.

If you haven’t downloaded yet the app, go ahead and follow this link to get it for free from the Windows Store. Various users have been reporting that the app is slow and buggy, and also crashes frequently, but let’s hope a future update will fix these issues.
