Board Express App for WP7

Free Resource

Some of you may be familiar with Tapatalk, which is available on iPhone and Android (as well as other platforms). It’s a popular application that makes it easy for users to read and write to internet forums. In the Android Market, Tapatalk is listed top five under Social (Paid) and in the iPhone App Store, it’s a top 25 social networking app. Good news for WP7 owners is that this application will be making its way on to the platform on 21st October and will feature the Metro UI design. The application will be known as Board Express and been optimized so that it minimizes the network traffic it creates, saving your data usage amount. You can write posts, open new threads, subscribe to topics and search. Furthermore, it can display unread threads or topics in your own themes, show private messages or send them and of course quote, edit, delete and report posts, and much more. Check out two videos demonstrating the application. The first video features the most recent version. It’s in German, but the video has English subtitles.

There are three versions of Board Express that will be out on the Windows Phone 7 platform:

Board Express: It’s free! Board Express supports all functions to read all Tapatalk enabled boards, but you aren’t able to write posts or start new threads, neither can you send PMs.

Board Express Pro: 2.90 EUR only! Board Express Pro supports all functions known from the free version but also enables you to write posts, new threads and send PMs.

Board Express Rebranding: forum owners may publish a customized version with their own logo, name and splash screen. Board Express Rebranding is bound to a specific board, like the PocketPC.ch App. It enables you to do everything like on Board Express Pro, but only on PocketPC.ch

It uses the Tapatalk plugin which is currently installed on more than 8000 boards all over the internet. Last month for example, more than 1100 forum owners enabled their forums for Tapatalk. More information about Tapatalk is available here and for more information on Board Express, you can visit the official site.
