Hi Everyone,

Most of you may have noticed that the Coldplaying app has been removed from the IOS app store and has not been working so well on Android lately. This is mostly due to lack of funding for the app. For a small site like Coldplaying, it is not viable to continue development on our app.

App Costs
Tapatalk BYO - $40/mo
Apple Developer License - $99/yr
Google Developer License - $25/yr

Total - $604/yr (+ any extra costs)

As of today, we will no longer be supporting the app and pretty soon it will be removed from the Play Store. You will still be able to use the app but once you uninstall it, it will be gone forever. We simply cannot afford to continue with the app and even if we offer it as a paid product, the small amount of users would never be able to cover the costs.

However we are looking for a developer who can create a coldplaying app for us that will support the Xenforo API and Wordpress. If you are a developer or happen to know one, please email me at [email protected] or drop me a PM here. This would eliminate the tapatalk BYO charged every month but we would have to pay a one time fee to the developer which could prove to be quite expensive.

Thank you for your interest in the Coldplaying App!

It doesn't work well at all. I can't find the galleries, etc...
I'm happy with using the website!

It works quite well but doesn't include some features such as the Gallery and Multimedia

Oh no! I'm so sorry about this [emoji47] [emoji22]
I hope you can find a developer very very soon. Some people rely a lot (even exclusively) on this app to use the forums!! It would be very sad to see it disappear :bigcry:

Damn, the app was what I mainly used before sending my phone off for repairs. Sad to hear that it'll be going, using Coldplaying on a phone browser will be a nightmare.

In future or even now, I'd be willing to pay to support a Coldplaying app or Coldplaying in general. I also have a step brother who's job is app making and stuff. We don't really talk but if you want me to I can put you in touch with him.

I agree!....but luckily those already with the app can still use it.

I got lucky, literally a few minutes after posting that, I got an email saying my device is ready for collection:dance:. Got the app.

If you don't have the app installed when it gets deleted you can still use the tapatalk app, it's essentially the same as the Coldplaying app, so it's much more convenient than a mobile web browser.

This may also change, tapatalk's software has been interfering with the forums as they use their own CDN and collect users data.

Is there a Coldplaying app?
There was one on iOS, but it got removed.
The Google Play/Android version is still online, but it is getting removed very soon.

They are looking for a developer to make a new version that doesn't require the $600/year development fees.

If you want, I can help, at least with the iOS version.

I don't have a Google Developer account, but I pay for the Apple Developer Program.


I also have access to the Xenforo API because I use Xenforo in my own site.

I'm based out of the US, so I will need to convert currencies.


Let me know if you need help!

Yayyy the app is back! Thanks everyone!

Would like the Multi quote feature though (or is that somehow implemented in a way I haven't discovered yet? I've only had it for about 15 minutes lol)
