Imgur is much more than an image hosting service; it’s a way to store and share photos with several different image formats. You can add your own files, view memes, GIFs, and other viral content. The ability to comment on them is just icing on the cake.

Upload and store images

Imgur delivers good content and has an amazing community, but there are a few issues when sending images.

This app is a way to connect to the imgur service. It’s a unique way to catch up with what’s going on in the world through visuals.

There’s an opportunity to be part of the content, too. You can do this by uploading your own set of pictures. You can use the app to share images with specific people, as well. You can also use the link system to simplify how you distribute your drawings, for example. There are lots of active participants on Imgur, so you can comment and share, and contribute to the digital community.

When you view content, there are often consequences regarding commercial subject matter. This app hasn’t struck the right balance when it comes to advertising. The ads are intrusive and negatively impact your experience when browsing.

The emphasis has shifted from the mobile website to the app, but the functionality hasn’t moved quickly enough. There are certain issues when uploading images, including long wait times and failed attempts to upload. If it weren’t for the frequency of these problems, it might not merit a mention. However, you’re likely to try to send an image through imgur more than a few times before it actually works, which is frustrating. There’s definitely room for improvement.

Where can you run this program?

Requires Android 5.0 and above for use. It’s also available for iPhone.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. You can find fun content and communities on Instagram and Flickr with fewer issues.

Our take

Imgur’s popularity is dependent on the content and the community. While it still has people that post the latest funny memes and images that go viral, it struggles with technical issues. It also has overbearing advertisements.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you’re looking to kill some time and stay up to date on the latest jokes and trends, then this app is still a decent option.
