"The folks over at Tapatalk are actually doing an interesting dual APK offering from one Play Store listing, which will give the older-style Tapatalk 2 app to those on Android 2.3 and earlier (for compatibility reasons), and the Tapatalk 4 app to anyone on ICS and above. If you're a traditionalist and want the classic Tapatalk app, you can download it from its support pages. "

Such a bad business model. Really an app killer. They could do it a little more subtle with out making it feel like a virus infested spam site
The point is to make you want to pay but make it usable for free. I think they succeeded. A bad business model would either make it non usable or give you no reason to upgrade.

You're making as if this app would be usable if it didn't have adds

I think you're the only one keeping score. I think it was reasonable, I don't know of alternative that is as good, and I'm happy to pay a small amount for something that I use regularly.

Just wait until Google starts charging for their services...

They already do. Not search, but storage, shopping, etc. And since they make it so easy, I'm happy to pay the relatively miniscule amount. Same with whatsapp and Dropbox (not miniscule) and Docusign, and plenty of others

Gmail, maps, and everything else. Case in point, this thread Help, Google just disabled my email accounts

FWIW I have a rooted android, and all I see are small banners on top of the page. I don't have full size ads because I blocked the ad activity

They have the scummiest clickbait ads.  :-[

How far back do I need to go to get a version APK without ads?

Those horrible ads had their intended effect and I bought the lifetime.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I'm leaning that way as well. Might switch to mobile browser instead though.
