Imgur Relaunches Official iPhone App, Brings Card-Style Interface

For the past year, iPhone users have been forced to load Imgur in a web browser instead of using an official app. However, that all changes today.

Imgur finally re-launched its official iPhone app on Thursday which brings a native experience, making the app a lot easier to use. The new app turns each image into cards, giving users a simple way to swipe through an entire stream of new posts.


If one of the images catches your attention just swipe up or tap the image to read the comments or add a comment of your own.

The company previously tried to launch an iPhone app in 2013, however it was incomplete and unusable, giving the company no choice but to pull the application about a year later. The new app provides a much smoother experience and has been built specifically for the iPhone.


Imgur for iPhone is available as a free download from the App Store. The app requires any device running iOS 7 or later and has been optimized for the iPhone 5, 6, and 6 Plus.
