Ratings and Reviews
Inferior to the mobile website
I look at imgur for images not for comments. If I want comments I’ll look at reddit. The problem with the mobile app is that each post is cluttered with other annoying and unwanted information such as comments, links, and tags and there is an unwanted toolbar persistent at the bottom of the screen. The result is that only 50% of the screen is dedicated to the actual image. Also, on the website, if you click the ‘view more’ button, it expands the the additional posts inline. The app takes you to a different page, requiring going back and forth a lot. Personally I hate this and much prefer the contiguous browsing experience of the website.
All in the app provides an very unpleasant image viewing experience.
As an aside, that you can no longer hide the ‘view in app’ button on the mobile website is pretty effing obnoxious. How bout this- make the app better than the website, catering to my and I assume others desire to view images more fluidly.
Uninstalling Until Ad Placement is Better
I have browsed Imgur pretty much every day for the last couple of years. The community is weird, but interesting and nice most of the time. Lately I’ve been having so many problems with the ad placement though. It moves depending on the size of the post which means while I’m scrolling through I’ll end up tapping ads because they move seemingly randomly which is no fun. They also do that annoying thing were they pop-up, then move as the post loads so I tap them on accident. Some of the ads even redirect multiple times before I get the chance to close out of them and get back to Imgur. Now with these ads that are in the middle of posts with multiple pictures it has become difficult to scroll up and down through them without pressing on ads that way too. The app has become so bloated with ads it’s no longer entertaining and amusing to scroll through each day. This latest update (which added the aforementioned mid-post ads) is really the last straw in my mind. Please bring back the old Imgur that just implemented ads that are whole separate posts... I’d even be fine with spending .99 cents or $1.99 to get rid of them! I’ll be waiting for a change to the ad placement system before I re-install. Thank you Imgur community for the previous years of enjoyment.
Back In My Day...
Back in 2012 when I first became a member of imgur, the site was a great get away. It was a fantastic way to unwind after work for 15 minutes get a few laughs and continue with my day. It was efficient, straightforward, and fun. Now, though, it’s loaded with ads and slower than any app I’ve ever used. It starts off alright, but slows down 2-3 images in. After that it’s slow to transition from one .gif to the next. God forbid you run your finer over an ad. It’ll sit there and spin for a minute then load up an ad you care nothing about. At this point, you have to close the app completely and restart it, assuming you want to continue dealing with it. Back in my day it was fun. Back in my day it was efficient. Back in my day imgur was the place to be. Now it’s inefficient and a reminder of how the internet (a reflection of the world) just isn’t what it once was. There’s usually animals, so that deserves a star.
