You want this on a phone? Here we go:

You'll need:
A rooted phone with ParanoidAndroid including per-app DPI
The apk from post 1

Method 1: Using ParanoidAndroid settings
1.) Install the apk as normal
2.) Go to your device's settings > ParanoidAndroid settings (Location and name differs per rom)
3.) Select apps > Tapatalk HD Beta
4.) Select the DPI slider to anything below 200
5.) Tap apply
Done, it will fit now. If you want the text bigger, go to Tapatalk's settings and set the font size from there

Method 2: Using the properties.conf file
Note: You still need to be running ParanoidAndroid to do this
1.) Open a root file manager, such as Solid Explorer
2.) Navigate to /system/etc/paranoid
3.) Open the properties.conf file to edit (Solid explorer has the built in text editor to do this)
4.) Add this line to the end:
Code:
com.quoord.tapatalkHDBeta.dpi=160
(Change the 160 to what fits you best between it and 200)
5.) Save the file
6.) Force close and re-open Tapatalk HD Beta
Done, it will fit now. If you want the text bigger, go to Tapatalk's settings and set the font size from there

Works like a charm having no problems. But maybe some better looking skins.

Me too! I've been using the tablet app more often on my N4 with PA than the phone app too because it's just so beautiful!

Is the a apk posted here the market version?

Been using this on my Nexus 7 for a couple days and love it. Had to try it on the nexus 4. Thanks OP for sharing. Can't wait until its optimized for phones. I bought tapatalk and will certainly but this, but I hope they let current tapatalk users upgrade to this one.

I really am liking this app and it's all working great but with a couple of alterations, it would be much better.

1. I don't like how there's no way to get to your own profile, except for finding one of your previous posts and clicking your avatar from there.
2. Using this brings un-needed options on your profile with no way to get rid of them. They also show on xda app aswell. See picture below.
3. I don't like how I can't stop the stickied threads from showing. I understand that it's there so new users will definitely see them, but I don't need to be force fed them because if I want to view them, I'll do so anyway.

Still working great and looking great though :)

I've been using this for a couple of days now and like it a lot better than the non-tablet version. The only thing I don't like is if you open a notification and then click on the back button in the top left it closes the app instead of bringing you back to your list of forums.That happened in the non-tablet version as well.

Runs great on my tablet and I even played with it on my phone.

Search is broken and causes fc's at random times. Maybe its due to it being on the phone. I have yet to test on the tablet.

Love the reply screen. Much better.

    Latest version here :)
    I'm sure Quinny will add it to the OP once he's online anyway.
    2
    Note: The beta has now expired and the paid version is now the only one available. I'm sure the guys over at Tapatalk want to thank you all for testing the app

    I've removed the apk from the OP to prevent future confusion
