Guys, I am close this thread now as we are rolling out the Public Beta in next few days. We will create a new thread by then. Many of the feedback you provided here have fixed / added in the upcoming Public Beta. Thanks!!

If you have VIP status at the TapaTalk Forum, you have been able to test the "Private Beta" over the past few weeks and if not you may have noted many of our Nexus 7 Forum members posting with a signature indicating that they are using "TapaTalk 4 Beta". Personally I have been very impressed with the potential of TapaTalk 4 and look forward to it merging TapaTalk 2 and TapaTalk HD. The public beta mentioned in the quote above, should allow anyone to install the beta and may even entitle you to free or reduced pricing when TapaTalk 4 is released. So I encourage you to at least install and register an account with the public beta. The updates to the private beta have been released on Sunday, so we could see the public beta as early as Sunday, 26Jun2013. I will update this topic when the Public beta is released.

If you have the private beta, the public beta should show today, but I have not found a link to it, but I expect it sometime today.

Initially it looks much improved over the private beta. Other opinions ?

I can't find a thread on the Tapatalk forum for the public beta? I've found a real annoying bug... I can start a new paragraph. The enter key on stock 4.2 keyboard now says "Done"and closes the keyboard. Damn frustrating...

Tapatalk took down the thread earlier today and no one knows why so we are waiting for them to put it back up. As some extra information, if you are using a swipe keyboard, there have been issues with that type of keyboard in the earlier beta.

Edit: Some follow up, I tested it with SwiftKey and hard returns, work without issue.

Good find, I rarely use the quick reply and usually tap the full reply (circle with plus)

Yes on the quick reply but that's not really the point, I'd class that as a work around. It wasn't like that before the public beta.
If I'm replying to a large post and I want to scroll through that post and answer in context, I can't if I open the full reply box. I can use another workaround and quote the post I'm replying too but again that's a workaround and seems to defeat the point of Tapatalk in the first place... Convenience...

Just as a test with Quick Reply.

Edit: Quick Reply is working on my tablet.

Quick reply works but the enter becomes "Done" and simply closes the keyboard.

Public Beta now available in the Play store...

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tapatalk.tapatalk4

Eventually this will be merged with Tapatalk HD and renamed Tapatalk 4, so anybody who hasn't purchased Tapatalk HD can use this for now but once merged you will need purchase this to continue using it and all Tapatalk HD users will obviously be using Tapatalk 4 instead of Tapatalk HD.

Thanks to JayJ for posting the link to the Play Store "Public Beta" and those of us who have purchased Tapatalk HD, will apparently get a free upgrade to Tapatalk 4, but don't write that in stone until the final release of Tapatalk 4. If you are happy with Tapatalk 2, don't worry, it will remain supported to accommodate Android versions prior to JB and will continue to work on your Nexus 7, if you choose not to change to Tapatalk 4. I will be repetitive and suggest, that you at least install the free beta and follow/join our forum's discussion, as we follow the beta's progress.

The OP has been updated in the Tapatalk forum with the latest information on the Public Beta or Tapatalk 4.

Tapatalk 4 - Public Beta on Play Store - Download and Feedback

Interestingly, MortyT, is quoted on the pricing scheme for TT4:

Free upgrade for users who have purchased TT HD

Limited time discount for users who have purchased TT2

For our forum members: Note that when TT HD was released, the discount price for it only lasted one day, so we will try to post a notice when the discount price is available.
