Tapatalk has just announced the launch of their own authentication platform named Tapatalk ID.
Tapatalk ID would allow users to sync their favorite forums across multiple devices. Users would still need to manually login to the different forums as this information is not synced with the Tapatalk servers.
The company said:
Tapatalk ID allows you to save your favorite forums under a single account, just like our previous attempt of Cloud Account, except it is more secure and universal that allows us to continue to build value-added features on top of it. Tapatalk ID does, however, support multiple users on a same devices, e.g. if you and your spouse also happen to be members of different forums, you can easily switch your list of forums to his/her list with Tapatalk ID.
The company also has good news for forum administrators:
From Forum Owner perspective, future version of Tapatalk Plugin will also support this ID just like Facebook Connect, allows much faster new registration on mobile devices, to drive more memberships to your forums.
This feature is currently available on Tapatalk for Android and Tapatalk HD for iPad. They are working on adding it to their mobile app for the Apple iPhone.
