Photo sharing service Imgur launches iOS app as part of growing mobile push


Photo sharing platform Imgur has finally launched its own iOS app, giving users a client for easily uploading, browsing and sharing images across their favorite websites. The app is a fully featured version of the desktop Imgur experience, containing everything users would expect from the service.

The Imgur app allows for image browsing, as users can browse the most popular images and memes on the web. Memes are most easily described as viral internet jokes or anecdotes, and are a major part of Imgur’s past success and culture. For instance, many users rely on Imgur for image hosting, before posting those “meme” pictures on other social networks, including Reddit.

Users can also post comments and vote on images, add images to galleries and manage their existing accounts while on the go. This iOS release follows the launch of the Imgur app on Android at the end of May.

“Our community drives our priorities here at Imgur, and the Android app was a great start but only got us about halfway there,” said Alan Schaaf, founder and CEO of Imgur, via a company release. “The mobile iOS app gives our iPhone and iPad users a way to enjoy the complete Imgur experience on the go. As more of our lives take place on the go, we want to make sure Imgurians have access to the full suite of Imgur features anywhere they are, on any mobile device.”

The Imgur iOS app is now available to download for free on iPhone and iPad. You can track its progress on AppData, our tracking service for mobile and social apps and developers.
