    Yeah so?? There are no known bugs and the free app has no benefits above this one. So what's the deal?
    It's like this, would you rather stay on iOS 6 that works perfectly on your iPhone 5 or update to iOS 8?

    Not quite the same. In iOS, every upgrade has had it benefits, whereas for Tapatalk this is not the case for pro vs free

    I've tried the free version with free upgrade. It doesn't give me the photo editor for when uploading pictures

    Not a fan of the way the non-Pro version works. I cant make it open and operate the way the Pro version does. It wants to show me all kinds of articles and stuff from the sites and NOT the forums. I have to dig through the menus every time I launch it to get to the forums. What a piece of crap. Im sticking with the Pro version. Like Apple, it just works.

    I read on the Tapatalk forum that to get pro features on the free app you have direct message or convo @ken and show proof that the pro app was purchased by attaching a screen shot of the pro app in your purchased apps list.

    I've read the reviews on the free app and a lot of people feel cheated out of their money.

    They are not upgrading it anymore. However assuming you created a Tapatalk user, if you download the current Tapatalk you get automatically upgraded to a special user class that normally requires an in app purchase.
    Can you provide details? I don’t even see an area for in-app purchases or any way to contact Tapatalk support.

    The photos app has an editor. Why not edit them before uploading? I use my ProCamera 8 and Camera+ to edit my photos. But if you are using the Pro, then they add a great new feature to the free version, you won't get it, unless you switch to the free version.

    Imagine this:

    You have to post a picture or a screenshot, but you don't want the edit to be permanent. With a build-in editor, you can edit a photo on the flow and still maintain the original in your camera roll.

    I.e: you like to crop just a part of a picture for just that one particular instance on Tapatalk

    I save all originals I want when I edit in ProCamera 8 or Camera+. And the edits are better.

    Let me give you an example.

    Let's just say I want to explain how to turn on Personal hotspots for the first time. I take a screenshot and I want to draw a circle around it. To do that, I would have to open my picture editing app, draw the circle, open Tapatalk again and select the latter picture. That's one too many actions for just a simple task.

    In the editing option build in Tapatalk pro, i don't have to go through all that hassle.

    I just have to take the screenshot, Tapatalk Pro-imageuploadedbytapatalk1419379136.049064.jpg

    Select the photos tab

    Select the drawing tab in the next screen

    Draw the line

    Tap the apply and then the done button

    In the free version, go to your Profile, then click Edit Profile. In there if you see VIP then you have the perks. Sorry about the misinformation about their being an IAP.

    Thanks, Karen. I don’t have VIP status, so I went to the Tapatalk site, signed up for a forum account and PMed Ken. Hopefully this will sort itself out soon. Naturally, I am doing this 2 days before Christmas.

    You might want to sign out in the free app and sign in with the Tapatalk ID in the Pro app. And then sign back in to be free app and see if that changes your status.

    Yep, you can do that. That editor is basically the Aviary Photo Editor. I have it in a photo album app. Aviary does some things really well, but it's limited. But then I'm a photo nut, and spend a lot of time working on and creating all kinds if images. Sort of my hobby.

    Now I get why I had the feeling to express myself more clear. You were talking about editing pictures in general, whereas I was only stating the handy option to use it for use in Tapatalk related stuff

    I agree though. I miss the built in Aviary based photo editor. I also used it all the time to mark up screenshots.
