The Best Apps for Humor and Memes
With more and more web users logging on from their smartphones and tablets, many popular humor websites are coming out with their very own apps. Now, instead of browsing your favorite daily reads on the computer, you can load them on your mobile device and browse jokes and memes whenever and wherever you please.
Imgur is the image-sharing website where memes, gifs, and viral images are born. The site began as a sharing utility for Reddit, but it has since taken on a life of its own, complete with loyal followers, inside jokes, and a must-read comment section.
The site’s new mobile app allows users to browse the most popular images of the day, read and leave comments, scroll through user submissions, and more.
Fans of newspaper-format satire site The Onion will be happy to learn that you can now get their brand of biting, irreverent wit on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. When the app was first released, it had a lot of bugs and other issues, but it has since been redesigned from top to bottom. The result is sleek, easy to use, and lots of fun.
One of the most popular sites on the web, BuzzFeed is home to humorous listicles, quizzes, stories, and more. The app keeps users up to date with daily highlights and trending topics.
You know that feeling you get when you log onto Facebook and you see that someone has posted something completely idiotic, blatantly racist, or morally questionable? The people at Lamebook not only know that feeling, but they have designed an entire website around it.
Lamebook is a parody site that lampoons Facebook and its multitude of ridiculous and clueless users. The site provides hours of voyeuristic fun, allowing you to take a glimpse into other people’s Facebook feeds to see the silly stuff people post, and it’s now available in app format. Just like the full site, Lamebook is a fun internet destination if you’re looking to feel a little bit morally or intellectually superior to your fellow social media users.
With a tagline like “Get your daily dose of fun,” it’s easy to see why this colorful and vibrant app is so popular. If you’re looking for funny web comics and memes, this app is a good bet.
Break is one of the most popular humor sites on the internet, specializing in viral videos, compilations, crazy pranks, fails, animated gifs, and bizarre but funny images. The app allows you to browse the entire Break site from your phone. Users can also upload their own images and videos.
Break is also known for its great YouTube Channels, and the mobile app is a good way to keep track of the site’s ever-expanding video catalog.
While many purists (read: 4channers and Imgurians) revile 9gag as a repost site, there’s no denying that it’s good entertaining, mindless fun. Funny web content might not originate on 9gag, but it certainly ends up there eventually.
The name of the app says it all. If you like Rage Comics, check this one out.
Mematic is a meme generator that allows you to apply text to pictures and videos. The search function gives you access to a library of popular images and gifs.
Smosh is a fun, goofy website that caters to 20-somethings. The app is a condensed version of the site, with funny listicles, meme collections, and original videos.
