KakaoTalk, Android, Smartphones and tablets

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a major update for KakaoTalk on Android, though we have seen very minor updates between April and now that dealt with behind the scenes fixes (although the Windows Phone version has been updated like crazy).

In version 3.8.0, KakaoTalk bids adieu to Android devices running OS version 2.0.1 or before, so if you’re still rocking that old Donut or Cupcake device, you’ll probably want to invest in an upgrade to be able to continue using Kakao on Android.

The update also brings a couple of major fixes to the scene, the first of which is a problem where photos were unable to be edited on certain devices. The new version supposedly fixed this issue, something we can believe since it is now working on our HTC Glacier.

The second patch is aimed toward an issue where the application would crash and force close when scrolling down the friends list. We have yet to see this problem in action, but it’s apparently affecting enough devices for South Korea to take notice and roll out a fix.

Assuming you’ve got OS 2.0.1 or above already, you can download this latest version directly from Google Play.
