If you are a mobile gamer that plays a bunch of gacha titles, you’ve probably heard streamers and YouTubers mention something called TapTap. That might be how you landed on this article. Which begs the question – What is TapTap?

We’re not going to make you read another 300 words before telling you the answer. TapTap is an app marketplace. It is similar to things like the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store. Where it varies, however, is in its offerings.

TapTap is known in the mobile game space thanks to its large number of game choices. Unlike the Play Store and the App Store, TapTap doesn’t have nearly the amount of red tape. This means a wider variety of games can be offered.

Why use TapTap for mobile and gacha games?

For mobile and gacha games, this is especially great. Often, releases contain content that the major platforms refuse to host. This can lead to developers having to change the game or, more likely, just not release it on Apple or Google’s store at all.

It really comes down to options. TapTap opens you up to a whole new world of gaming options. Asian studios release a ton of awesome games each year that never make it to US app stores.

TapTap lets you unlock those games. Granted, they are not always available in your native language, but there are many YouTubers and other services that provide translation services.

Lastly, if you want to check out TapTap for yourself, you’ll need to know how to download it.

For Android smartphones, you’ll need to head to this link and download the APK. From there, you will need to sideload the APK onto your Android device.

Is TapTap on iOS?

The TapTap app is also available on iOS, but in limited form. Specifically, you can’t download games, making it kind of pointless.

It’s like looking through a shop window, seeing all the amazing products, but knowing you’ll never be able to buy them. It does give you a good way to see what people are playing, but that is about it.

So, if you came to this post wanting to know how to download games on TapTap for iOS, we’re sorry to be the bearers of bad news.

Is TapTap on PC?

If that seems a bit overwhelming, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Check out this guide to download TapTap on BlueStacks 5 and this guide to download it on Nox Player.

Use the service to expand your gaming options

At the end of the day, TapTap is a great way to gain access to a ton of mobile and gacha games.

Even better, you can use it on both your Android smartphone and through an Android emulator.

Ultimately, the storefront isn’t necessary as the Google Play Store has plenty of games, but if you are looking for something specific and can’t find it through traditional means, we highly recommend checking out TapTap.
