Fark® Reader has been updated for iOS 12 with improved navigation, Siri shortcuts support, and 3D touch support.

What is Fark? "The first thing you should know is that isn't a Weblog., the web site, is a news aggregator and an edited social networking news site. Every day Fark receives 2,000 or so news submissions from its readership, from which we hand-pick the funny and weird notable news -- and not-news -- of the day." (

What can I do with the app?
Quickly scan the latest Fark headlines in any of the standard categories (Main, Sports, Business, Geek, Entertainment, Politics, Fark Party). Select the funniest, stupidest, or most interesting. Read what other Farkers are saying and add your own thoughts. Share headlines with friends via email, text message, Facebook, or Twitter.

"'s pretty clear that it's funny. Really funny. So, to both Farkers of the world and to those who have never heard of it…if you like the site, there’s an app for that, too."

Love it!

I've been reading for years. Love the tags and witty comments on the stories. Keep it up!

Something changed. One star now, was five

Loved Fark for years. Read through it every day. The last few weeks about every sixth article it hangs and freezes the iPad. Then i get the screen for a game that doesn’t show the “X” for a good twenty seconds, instead of five. I also get page ads that the only way to get free is to close the app entirely. Instead of interesting reading, it’s now a herky-jerkey ride to annoyance. Too bad.
Added 2/3/19. Finally abandoning what had been a daily read. Two or three times a day the app goes black as if stalling to bring up the above “games”. It never comes back. I’m uninstalling.... bye

Hangs, annoying ads, connection issues

This app hangs on articles, takes up space on the screen with non-closable ads that cover content, and some of those ads force you to those annoying scam iPhone user winner pages. Also - if I am using the app, why do you advertise the app every 3 stories? Annoying app, going to remove and finally give up in Fark.
