Original Tapatalk for iOS goes free, upgrades all users to the newer interface

The original version of Tapatalk for both iPhone and iPad is now free for all users and brings with it the completely redesigned interface that users of Tapatalk 2 already enjoy.

For existing users of the original version Taptalk that have in-app purchases and additional content, hold off if you'd like to keep it as they'll have an update to address it shortly.

When Tapatalk 2 was released a while back, the differentiating factor was the completely redesigned interface and some additional features such as themes and other abilities. This update brings Tapatalk 2 and the original version pretty close in functionality which makes us wonder if they're planning anything to really differentiate the two.

If you've updated, let us know what you think!
