Imgur for iOS brings viral images to iPhone and iPadImgur released its first official iOS app this week, offering a browsable and searchable version of the popular online viral picture, meme and GIF repository to Apple's portable devices.
Imgur for iOS allows users to browse images, filter searches, vote, and for registered users, upload content directly to the gallery.
Searching uses a filter mechanism that mimics the web version by narrowing down images by "Most viral," "Highest scoring" and "Newest," while the gesture-supported user interface and layout is carried over as well.
Many familiar features make it into the app, including a condensed comments section, in-app voting, a share button, and management for accounts and albums.
Imgur is available now as 4.4MB free download from the App Store.
