Too political 1/5
The app used to be great for funny posts but now it’s all political posts and who knows who is making these posts. It feels like propaganda and is just not funny anymore.
Fine app, but I can’t handle the battery drain 3/5
By Over the Lecturing
The app is nice, easy to browse and navigate comments. But it drains my battery so fast, and causes my phone to run extremely hot. I deleted it in the end, it’s not worth the battery strain.
New update - even worse. 2/5
I wish you guys would test the app before you inflict it on us. After having endured the slowdowns and memory leaks for the last who knows how many months, now - as of 1/21/2021 the slowdowns have gone away but the first twenty or so images just keep repeating over and over. Back to the web.
No way to turn comments off 1/5
You get mobbed by an echo chamber of idiots the second you post anything. I’m not looking for opinions. I just wanted somewhere to post photos for an RSS feed. And there’s no option to turn it off, how dumb.
So many giraffes 5/5
10/10 memes and good community
What happened?! 2/5
Anytime I click on a post from the front page and swipe back to keep scrolling the front page, all the the thumbnailed posts rearrange and I lose my place. Is this a glitch? It makes no sense if this is intentional. Also for the love of god, let comments be longer. Replying to your own comment to finish a thought is annoying and outdated, not sure why this wouldn’t be addressed.
This used to be a fun place to go. Now it is just people that claim to be woke and accepting but hate people that don’t agree with them.
Imgur’s full of libtards.
Political Echo Chamber 1/5
political echo chamber
Doesn’t keep your place 1/5
By GOODBYE SNAP CHAT
It constantly goes off of the post your on. The app is unusable now. I hardly ever use it anymore because of this. It also has malicious ads and my phone gets hit every time I use the app. Deleting it from my phone and tablet!
Political garbage 1/5
The community has devolved into a political garbage pit. It used to be about the funny memes and now is just a leftist cult of politics.
Sad liberal getaway 1/5
If you want a place to complain about Trump and Republicans then you have found your safe place. This site used to be fun now it's lame and full of liberals looking to vent about their sad lives and share fake wokeness
The app is ok, but it definitely needs a political filter. 3/5
My biggest complaint about the app is that it looses where you are if you have to change screens for any reason. I will say that It needs an easy way to filter political posts, I enjoy them sometimes, but most of the time I just want to laugh. The community is nice, but that changes with the political posts as well.
Never load 1/5
Always over capacity. Do not download
Worst app ever
This app is designed to dhow you more ads than memes
Finally left Imgur after 10 years. 1/5
this little website that developed into an app used to bring a smile to my face on the roughest of days. There was such a great community, now it is very very left based. It’s a left wing circle jerk. If you believe in anything else you’re slammed with hate.
Battery Vampire. Solid Otherwise 3/5
The app works, full access to what’s on the desktop website. Thats the good part.
The reason I’m giving 3 stars though is because the app drinks up battery power like it’s just found water after being stranded in the Sahara for a week.
Latest build drains battery on XS (Jan 21) 2/5
I'm not sure what changes were made in the last couple of builds but the imgur app has become unusable on both my iPhone XS and my wife's 12 mini. My phone gets extremely hot after about 10 minutes of use and the battery goea down about 10-12% in that time. It about the same story on my wife's phone. Please fix this! Thanks
Fix this issue already!!! 1/5
Under normal circumstances I’d give Imgur 4/5 stars, but the months long ongoing glitch that resets the app every time you do something else on your phone is beyond frustrating and basically renders the app useless if you want to multitask on your phone. Will return better rating once this persistent issue is fixed!
I remember when Imgur used to be good. Imgur long ago used to be funny and entertaining. Now it is mainly full of hateful/misleading content and comments.
Save yourself time and look elsewhere. This place is no better than Twitter or Facebook.
Unnecessary restrictions 1/5
By Woolman 2002
Why would I want to make an account to view images?
Good app 4/5
By cash hickey
It’s a good app it’s just I’m getting kinda tired of all the politics
Fix the app 2/5
Use to love browsing, but over the last few months the app has become trash. As others have said if you move to other app and come back the app restarts. Browsing for a few minutes and god forbid watch Gif phone gets as hot as lava and scrolling becomes erratic and unusable.
Extremely political 2/5
By Drew Felter
Imgur has become a political post app (liberal). Even as a liberal myself, it is exhausting instead of refreshing and fun. I hate to say it but if you’re looking for entertainment... Imgur is not your guy.
Newest update possibly? 2/5
I find it very frustrating that whenever I leave the app, to multitask, when I come back, it acts as if I am just opening the app for the first time. I lose my spot every single time. Please fix this!
Bullying at it’s best 1/5
I joined this app years ago to share memes and pictures. Now it has devolved into yet another platform to bully users with differing political standpoints. If you post something against the accepted norm, you are called “trash” and “Neo-Nazi” at the kindest. Any threats of violence and harm that are reported are simply ignored. Don’t waste your time with this app.
Battery melter 3/5
Content and user interface are great, but this app will absolutely devour a phone charge. When it comes to energy consumption, Imgur app is positively ravenous, taking as much as 70% over the course of 10-15 minutes. In my experience, the only other app that places such a premium on battery-life is The Witness, a game whose substantial graphics processor demands are well known. I’d love for you someone to explain to me how, HOW Imgur’s needs are even remotely comparable.
The Best 5/5
Best platform out there
anonymity anyone? 1/5
i can browser the website without and imgur login, but not the app? dust for you, baby.
Steadily deteriorating 2/5
I used to browse the app for laughably unhealthy amounts of time and mainly because it was seamless. But for months things have steadily deteriorated putting me on the edge of deleting and leaving the community.
Aside from the widely reported refresh bug: leaving the app for a moment and returning refreshes the app and resets your viewing. Say you want to double check something you’re writing in a comment, you jump into a browser to research, then switch back to the app, you’re no longer in the middle of writing a comment, you are now at the top of the home page again. OR enjoying a dump, switching to a text, and returning to find your spot and the post are gone. Other apps can remember where I was yesterday before I switched out of the app and never returned.
Aside from this, the app overworks the phone’s processors. In less than a half hour on the app, my phone heats up, and simple gestures and taps slow down and my iPhone XR freezes. Once I can, closing the app quickly solves all problems with my phone.
The administration running the community and supporting this app have surely focused on anything other than providing the enjoyable experience I have known for years. Sorely disappointed in their actions towards one of their most popular users, their overzealous moderators, their apparent disinterest and ignorance of their community’s feedback, not to mention no desire to improve the long standing problems.
One long standing problem: searching the app is an abysmal experience. It’s impossible to find a specific post from earlier in the week (or day sometimes) unless you literally added it to your favorites. But searching the same terms in a search engine adding “Imgur” does not take long to locate your goal.
I hope there’s a change within this organization. The community can be and often is a wonderful escape. Like any online forum, things can get ugly and negative, but (on basically anything other than politics) positivity, inclusion, and unconditional support are a norm that are the reasons I’ve stuck around so long. Please fix the platform.
Infuriating inability to pick up where I left off 2/5
It’s an image app. You scroll through images. But if you happen to switch to a different app and interact with it, then go back to this one, you literally start over again as if you just opened it. Then you have to find where you left off. Absolutely horrible user experience.
1/7/2020 ..this is why Reddit is EDITORS CHOICE! 1/5
Yup..it’s official, whoever at imgur runs the show on this app must be gone bc this is intolerable. I’m out, you chumps!
I wrote a scathing review about Imgur‘s latest updates and how it seems to refresh every time you change view AND the monstrous amount of ads. Now my review reset, but no matter..here’s your one star imgur..again! And me making sure it’s there should speak volumes how bad your app has gotten. Down-voted
I have found the IMGUR app to be relaxing to browse through due to the variety of posts available which include pets, art, and memes.
Used to be good 1/5
Waiting for the next hot app. This one has turned so political and over the top. This community is one of the most toxic communities out there. Where did all the memes and funny pics go? They don’t exist anymore.
An app for political echo chambers 1/5
I’ve been using Imgur for around 6 years. It used to be a place to share memes, community creations, inside jokes, but now the front page is completely filled with angry political rants reposted from Twitter. I’m not even exaggerating—the front page is consistently 100% politically charged images. There used to be other places for that, but I guess Imgur is now just another one of many venomous echo chambers floating around on the internet.
It’s an American political app. 1/5
By imgur is a joke
It’s an app that is almost 100% made up of people complaining about the American politics
I can’t see all of my posts! 1/5
When I scroll down it doesn’t load all of my posts. Why is there a limit to how many posts I can view???
Security Risk!!! 1/5
Scam. You need to hand them your cell number to activate an account. For that reason, I won’t be using your software, Imgur. DELETED.
If I could give you a -5, I would have.
UI is clunky, hemorrhages battery life, but functional 1/5
Interface isn’t as good as desktop, but is better than mobile site. Battery draw is incredible. My phone normally lasts me 2 days, but will be drained in a few hours if I’m not plugged in. Ads are pretty annoying, as there’s always a chance they’ll automatically redirect you without user input, but I’m not willing to pay membership for an app that feels so unfinished.
Notifications broken 1/5
By Lololololololol J
I give one star to any app that sends me notifications without my permission. I have all notifications turned off and yet you continue to send me notifications. I know this is intentional and not just an oversight because I know how companies like this operate.
Frustratingly bad 1/5
I used to love Imgur, and it was probably my most used app on my phone. But there was an update a while back and now the app closes every time you leave it so that when you go back you lose your place. It’s annoying enough that I came here to change my rating and write a review, and I will most likely just delete the app.
App crashes 90% of the time 2/5
When you switch to another app and return, you’re not back to where you left off, you’re placed on the front page again. This is terrible and should have been fixed a long time ago. Was this intentional? I’m seeking alternative apps.
F^€kin MINT! 5/5
Title says it all
Another fun thing ruined by leftists 1/5
Literally nothing but a leftist circle jerk. Used to be fun, now just a bunch of fat losers complaining that the government doesn’t give them free stuff.
Forced to use the app 1/5
I shouldn’t need to download the app to upload an image. I’ve never had before until recently.
Contains malware 1/5
I removed the app because almost every time I use it my router sends me alerts that my phone is trying to access known malware sites.
Restarts when minimized, otherwise a solid app.
People didn’t like the app before,update made it worse 2/5
I don’t know what to tell you. It updates and knocks you off where you were if you go to another app. Why? My guess is to show you more ads. Thanks imgur. You’ve made an inferior experience even worse
Imgur is one of the best long running meme-popping apps 5/5
By Julian Gude
Not only are there memes for days on imgur, there is a community of funny and nice folks behind the postings that is all but impossible to find. Follow the fun stuff and you’ll be rewarded.
