Intercepts links but doesn’t go to image 1/5
worse than worthless
Used to be great. 2/5
With the new ads I can't listen to music and browse at the same time. My music stops playing (pandora/Spotify) and I can't start it again unless I close the app and go back to the music app. I don't mind the new adds other than that. It only happens with posts that have a lot of photos so I know it's the new add system.. fix that and it's easily 5 stars
Little much 2/5
Repetitive content, bots, app crashes due to ads ads are intrusive and ruin overall experience.
Has gotten greedy with ads 1/5
At first it was nice and clean with only promoted posts and a subtle ad you can ignore. Then they put another ad at the very bottom below the top comments put above the other comments so you only see them if you want to go deep in the comments. Now if you have 5 or more photos in a post they will put an ad in between those. Which means one post can have around 5 ads including the two at the bottom. This has truly ruined my experience while I know they're other apps that are way less frequent with ads.
I enjoy the app 1/5
One star for giving me a pop up to rate the app.
Infected with advertisement 2/5
In the beginning they had a simple ad right under a post, but now its placed everywhere! between posts and in the middle of a post and its gonna get worse later on.
But the contents pretty good besides people emotional drama and petty opinions.
Uploading content is confusing 2/5
The upload feature doesn’t show photos so how the heck am I suppose to upload?
Was fun 1/5
Ads in the middle of every post. Nearly impossible not to click them while scrolling
Run away from latest version, run far away 1/5
By C Tulip
Newest version has add in posts that drain battery like it’s a job, and when scrolling through posts, I’ll accidentally click on them and be rerouted to download an app or a new game. Extremely frustrating. On top of that the screen freezes quite often so I can’t scroll up or down or back and forth to other posts. Avoid this app until they get their stuff together.
Great Until Recently 2/5
I used to spend a lot of time on Imgur and this app. But recently, Imgur introduced “gifs with sound”. My battery goes down 10% every 5 minutes while using this app, with a large portion spent on audio. I would not recommend this app anymore.
Doesn’t Upload 2/5
“The server did not understand what to do.”
Everytime I try to upload a photo, I get that message.
I’m using iPhone X and whatever the latest update is. - June 20, 2018
Thanks for messing it up 1/5
By tripling the number of ads on this app in less than a month 👍🏻
Phone and time cancer 1/5
Freezes phone has malicious adds. Waste of time.
Ad Attrition 1/5
By Musical Bones
What once was a pretty decent scene is now being encroached by more ads and worse ads as they juice their community for as much money as possible. I understand that they need to make money, but this was the poorest way to monetize the platform. By making their money through advertisements, they endebt themselves to corporations instead of to their users.
Big piece of crap app 1/5
By Disappointed duder
The thing is constantly freezing up and needing restarted. It has a sharing feature that maybe works 1 out of 10 times. I can’t get more than 20 images into a session before the thing slows down and freezes. Then you need to restart it. I wouldn’t mind if it wasn’t for the fact that they make it nearly impossible to browse on a mobile device without the app. The share function works maybe 1 out of 15 times. It is barely even a functioning piece of software.
Love it! 5/5
This app is actually reliable
Excellent minus ad placement 4/5
Seriously my dudes... I’m trying to browse memes but you placed ads LITERALLY EVERYWHERE so I can’t scroll anywhere on mobile without accidentally tapping one and being zoomed away to safari land to look as viagra’s stupid website
By Wild child 79
Imgur is just a place to post selfies and stories about feelings. The entertaining content has become rare.
From greatness to disappointment 2/5
This app used to be great up until the latest few versions. Ads are everywhere now a bunch that are videos that slow down your scroll. I have an iPhone X and this app is lagging. It shouldn’t happen. So now my phone starts to heat up and excessively drain my battery when I’m use. Alas, this is the fortune of every free app.
Ads and Battery Drain 1/5
Used to love this app. It was always smooth and worked without issue. However, with the introduction of the obnoxious ads, the app has become unusable (and not just because I don't like ads). With the introduction of the ads, the app becomes more and more slow the more you use it - until it becomes unusable, forcing you to close it. With this slowness, your phone becomes increasingly more and more hot. With this hotness, your phone battery tanks. I can use up about 40% battery in 20 mins. The ads seriously need to be rolled back until the performance issues have been solved.
Ads everywhere and slow 1/5
Ads load super fast, actual content somewhat slow, and the ads are everywhere and take the place of a post so you’ll have to swipe past the ad, the next post and then swipe back twice to make sure you didn’t miss anything. You’ll get Chinese ads, video ads that are just a tiny square you can’t even see, and ads that are too large for the space they are in too. So all in all it’s wasted space...
Oh the actual posts? Ads in between every 5 pictures if it’s a collection of pictures... Oh sorry! The posts right- oh sorry my phone is slowing down from being on imgur for too long, gotta swipe it away and reopen it..
Sorry sorry! Gotta talk about the actual posts, right... they are pr-
Stop it with so many ads and information trackers. They drain battery and data limits. (Imgur has more trackers than Facebook that run allllllll the time. 0/5
Why can’t I just upload an image? 1/5
Why do I have to create an account and have a social network forced down my throat?
By bob Abernathe
Not sure I like this imgur site
This app RUNS AWFUL on my IPhone 6+. Constantly freezes and runs as slow as my first pc 15 years ago. Not sure what happened but it used to run smooth.
Use at your own risk 1/5
If you like ads then this is the app for you. But honestly the fact that there are ads isn’t the worst. The worst is that they are malicious ads with spyware and such.
Intrusive Ads 1/5
Intrusive ads that almost seem to click themselves.
It’s killing my phone 3/5
I like the app well enough, but it overheats my phone and kills my battery. 10 minutes of browsing, about 10% battery drained. I do it anyway.
Bad ad addition 2/5
The mid image list ads open easily and are quite intrusive. App was working fine, but as with most organizations, instead of coming up with a decent way to monetize with ads, they chose the laziest path, at the expense of user experience. I have yet to see this be anything but a signal for an audience to jump ship before things get worse. It’s a shame, it was a decent and fun to use app.
Too many ads 1/5
So many ads now. I understand a way to make profit but ads in the middle of albums is flat irritating
By Southern poppy
Hate every user, they all think they're cool
Amazing App 5/5
Memes never stop
Battery drain 1/5
By WE ARE SEX BOB-OMB!!!!!!!111
Are used to love going on this app.
but now it just drains my battery, lags out, and closes any other app I have up. And the way that ads are displayed ruins the format of Imgur.
Can’t even close ads 1/5
Ads? Sure. Middle of post ads? Fine, if I have to. Accidentally click an ad, and have it open many times, even after closing it? Done.
Overheats and freezes 2/5
The new version isn't coded well or is allowing advertisers to run their own code as running the app for a while eventually causes the phone to overheat and the app to freeze.
Great community, but the people behind the wheel aren't being careful.
Ads in posts 1/5
Are you really going to put ads in posts that have a scroll within them so you need to drag around it to get past it.. great app but this is ridiculous.
Drains battery life in background 1/5
Maybe my iPhone 6s is a bit out of date, but it’s getting very hot when running Imgur. The app uses a lot of battery, and often is laggy.
I wish I could just use the website, because imgur is a website. The mobile version is intentionally gimped to force you to get the app.
Imgur’s “social” aspect is quite odd. I have been using imgur since it was just an image host, and the “community” that has developed is kind of creepy. I’ve been messaged by creeps. I don’t even want messaging.
The amount of ads is getting out of hand. On galleries with multiple images, weird ads are inserted between photos, leading to confusion. A lot of the ads don’t make sense or are in foreign languages. The way you scroll down a gallery makes it too easy to accidentally click an ad launching you out of the app. I usually just force close the app in frustration when this happens. This is simply a shady technique of getting clicks.
many ads, much slow 1/5
I used to really love Imgur, but now? First they started with banner ads at the bottom of posts. We complained. Then they added full-page ads in-between posts. We complained even more. NOW they’ve decided to and ads IN THE MIDDLE OF PHOTO DUMPS. Wthell you guys.
Plus this ish is so friggen slow now that I have to browse on mobile instead of the app to get anything to load.
Slowly worse 3/5
With every update i can feel the app getting slow as they bog it down with more and more ad placement. I have an iPhone 6 and its to the point that my phone gets physically hot while on the app and the performance tanks after only a few minutes. I love the content but the app needs improvements.
Great app, BUT.. 2/5
The ads, they’re everywhere. Not only do they have their own posts now, they’re inserted in the middle I’d other people’s as well. It’s really annoying.
Used to be good 1/5
I used to spend a lot of time on imgur. Probably too much, that said I enjoyed the content imgur offered. It’s ads never previously intruded into content, that changed with the most recent update and I am sorry to say that it’ll now force me to delete the app. Ads used to be separated, and mostly non-intrusive. I’d honestly rather pay a donation than deal with this many ads. I’m sorry Imgur, but this time you’ve lost me.
Ads are ridiculous 1/5
I didn’t mind the ads at first, but now if I click on some of them they won’t close.
It’s nonsense. Fix the ads or get rid of them.
Good Community Terrible App 2/5
The Imgur community is pretty exceptional. However, the iOS app has been terrible in my experience. I use an iPhone 7, and the app has been consistently bug and crash filled for months. It has always been buggy in general, but I can barely scroll through 3 posts without the app freezing. Recently the number of ads has skyrocketed as well, increasing bugginess. If I accidentally tap an ad, it will continue trying to load even after I close it and scroll to the next post. The app is unacceptable at this point.
Easy with the ads 1/5
Lastest update made this app so bloated with ads that it affected performance. Guess I'm not using imgur mobile anymore... 😕
Ad scam! 1/5
Deleted the app because the greedy Imgur office decided to place ads in the middle of dumps and I can’t scroll without clicking them on accident all of the time. Absolute garbage. Stay away!
Irresponsible with ads 1/5
By Mathias Stroganoff
I used to like this app a lot but over time they continued to to insert more intrusive ads to the end user experience. The last straw was for me was when they included ads in the middle of posts themselves. Imgur has a bit of a history with not being able to get ads right and I hope that this is just a phase but for now it’s 1 Star from me.
Ads in annoying places 2/5
I like browsing the app for memes and jokes, but the ads in long multiple picture posts are almost the size of the pictures and easy to accidentally click. The banner ads are annoying but they are at least always at the end of the post. The huge ads are going too far.
Perfect 5/7 5/5
By Awesome ducks are hoes
Don’t get how 5/7 is a perfect score? Up your meme game by joining Imgur!
Yeah that’d be great 3/5
Everything works no bugs except the fact that every other week my folders disappear. Gone. Poof. Erased from existence.
Ads, ads, and more ads 1/5
By Traveling Maggie
Imgur used to be great. It has now implanted so many ads everywhere that it has become confusing and nearly unusable. Stop selling out, just let us post weird things in peace. @Sarah
Out of hand 2/5
Riddled with ads.
