9GAG launches official app for Windows Phone to make you giggle

9GAG Lede

9GAG ( is an online resource of funny, witty and downright strange media, much like a condensed edition of a handful of Reddit communities. The website hasn't yet had an official app for Windows Phone available for use, but this has recently changed with the official 9GAG client now listed on the store.

Wether you're after some funny pictures, animated GIFs, videos, memes or just a shot of 'WTF', 9GAG boasts an expansive collection and is updated on a daily basis. There's a slight issue with the Windows Phone app the website has launched, however. It's not a native experience with similar functionality available in other apps.


That said, it's an official title on the store. You're able to log into your 9GAG account, upvote/downvote entries and engage with the community as a whole. That's where the list of features comes to an end. There's no Live Tile, lockscreen or Modern UI support, which is a shame as we've seen some solid third-party 9GAG work.

You can download 9GAG from the Windows Phone Store for free (will go commercial soon). If the app doesn't make you laugh and giggly inside, we recommend you check out Rudy Huyn's unofficial 9GAG Windows Phone app. It's a feature-rich app with a full Windows Phone experience. Thanks, Lance, for the tip!

Edit: damn it's just a web wrapper sigh..

omer620 says:

Fuck 1gb ram requirment

I3unny says:

Yea.. Fuck it

hotraia says:

Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck

Mind your language buddy

omer620 says:

Fuk dis i will switch to moto g or i will upgrade my fucking 620 to 930. Fuck my phone, no fucking good apps, the fucking volume rockers and the fucking power button is not fucking working. All my photos are red coloured, sometimes green but not fucking in normal colour and i fucking lost my fucking sim card

Tomazon says:

I know that feel bro. Getting tired of my 520, getting tired of waiting to apps to get funtional (i'm talking to you Spotify and Whatsapp), i'm tired to OS to become competitve and stable, i'm tired to see every single cool app on a website/service i use, only available to iOS and Android.

Also, my wife's 620 has the same issue with power button, it's all flat and unresponsive.

Chemilinski says:

I've not ever had the thoughts you have with my 520. I'm very happy with mine.

However I've had the unresponsive buttons thing a few times, but it's a very simple fix. It often happens when I've dropped the phone or thrown it onto my bed, and all you have to do is take the shell off, and put it back on again. Viola!

I was very happy with my 521. I only traded up to a 925 for the ram and storage space.

BinaryInk says:

Fuk fucking Fuck fucking fucking fucking fucking fucking fucking fucking.

Do you really expect anyone to take you seriously? I'd say take the phone back to your carrier since it's obviously a defect, but nobody fucking wants to fucking deal fucking with that fucking (so do them a favor and don't).

And the SIM card is on you?

please don't use offensive words in your comments

kullkid92x says:

Some advice on the button issues on your 620 or anyone with a 530.

Just take off the snap on shell and mess around with the rubber button thingy inside and make sure you place it well into the holes. I did this once to my moms 520 and she never had the buttons go flat again.

jibreezy1982 says:

Uh huh...Fck it!!

sethpogi says:

True. 1GB RAM? Fak

Dantekai14 says:

I don't know what to fuck it,
WP, Lumia or WP app ecosystem

ammoiz says:

Tells whoever made it was a knob head

Ratman826 says:

Nah, stick with Rudy's

Rich Edmonds says:

Agreed. They need to step up with an update to at least make a native app.

wtma says:

What? It doesn't look native as in HTML-based apps? Duh... I'll stick with Rudy's.

freshfelicio says:

I dont like Rudy's beause I have to swipe through every post and zoom in on long posts, instead of simply having a feed like the mobile website. The mobile website is bugged on IE though.

Vanezzable says:

I like Rudy's more because I can swipe through every post instead of loading a huge feed of images.
I also liked Rudy's one more than the official one on my old Android phone.

ammoiz says:

Rudy is a bloke

avigyan says:

Requires 1GB RAM?!!!

albadi88 says:

and for what a web page ?? i'm gone stay with rudy

Dantekai14 says:

This is total fuck shit

Nabkawe5 says:

Yup I use rudy's 9gag, it us way too good.

1gb ram required for a website??? Hahahahaha

Rich Edmonds says:

It's a serious web wrapper, man!

Rich do you still think this is the official app , or maybe a prank for April fool ?

Chemilinski says:

Wow, that is pro trolling if it were. I wonder if they have a thread about their new app and everyone is just cackling at it for being a pitiful excuse of an app.

henocksandy says:

Lol, when did these apps need 1GB RAM? -Lumia 520 user, cant download

dKp1977 says:

You're not missing much. It's just a wrapper for their mobile website. Waste of time.

Dantekai14 says:

Yeah!nice try.
But you know WP apps sucks

omer620 says:

Seems master

Posted via the WPC App for Android!

omer620 says:

Seems web wrapper

Nimdock says:

The problem with Rudy's app is that it crashes a lot, gifs load slowly, and my phone gets extremely hot while using it.


This one seems to be a bust though.

SenneVc says:

Yeah, the same with my 925. I always use the mobile website over Rudy's app.

Soypan says:

Yeah, same here, it's a good app, but it's in need of a performance overhaul

Jan Tomsic says:

It does, but it's still better and faster then this official one.

Corvodin says:

I can't remember when this was announced, but it was a long freaking time ago.

lemonsteveo says:

Just don't read the comments, it will scar your mind and take away a few brain cells with it.

Need 1GB RAM. zzzz...

Rudy's app is way way better!

Dantekai14 says:

Again a stupid comment to cover WP uglyness

telenorce says:

Wooooooot? 1gb :D

I think once it goes commercial then an update will kick in with the Modern UI, livetile etc.. It's atleast good that 9GAG has brought their app to WP.

DennisvdG says:

Haha maybe next year

vijax21 says:

WOW.. that splash screen feel like time rolled back to 2010?... at least it doesnt have advertisements..

Eas195 says:

ah, shame. It requires me to download on 1GB RAM phone. (n)
will go to the unofficial one instead.

c41 says:

9gag? haha. a real imgurian or redditor will skip this sh.t.

kleider1 says:

Then why waist your time on this page?

Dhani_muh says:

God damn it!!! 1 GB?

nuclax says:

Wtf 9gag
They are taking wp like a fuck*ng joke .

DJCBS says:

A web wrap...yeah, stick with Rudy's.

Also, for the sake of other people, leave a review warning them it's not a proper App. That ought to help people not waste 1.99 when they put it as a paid app.

Will they really make it a paid app? That's even worse..

Did put some hate in my review for the app >:)

pinkymoshy says:

Fuking shit bo 512 ram support

Problem with Rudy's app is it crashes randomly..Sucks lot of battery when I use it maybe I'm wrong..Was desperately waiting for a official app and now they ask for 1gb ram :|
Gonna stick to ie.

Soypan says:

Nope, same here, you're not alone :/

Yea thought so, the day I don't use Rudy's app to check 9gag battery lasts for an entire day :/
Or else it sucks lot of battery and has fucking drawbacks too
The minute you switch screen to reply to a message and return page fucking reloads back to the latest post :/
Getting irritated. :|

Boyack says:

How is that possible?

It doesnot support devices with 512 MB of RAM.


Its nothing but a web app, just like that Youtube from Microsoft. And it needs 1 GB of ram Lamo.

Oh I just got it .. Maybe this is the FUNNY side of them.

BinaryInk says:

Yeah, not a very good app; just a web wrapper, and it doesn't work all that well either.

busyman96 says:

The app is just bad. It looks bad and has minimum functionality. Even the website is better!

Artur198 says:

That IS the website lol...

Jan Tomsic says:

OMG this must be one of the worst official apps in the world. I'll stick to Rudys one thank you, at least that one is done properly and isn't just a mobile web site. I'd be ashamed to put something like this official app in the store as 3rd party.

Jack Janik says:

Well, it's all reposts from Reddit anyway! :P

scorpian007 says:

This app is pathetic. Going to stick with Rudy's.

mazami says:

1 GB ram? Seems fucker

itti_sam says:

1 GB ram for a web app that shows photos? Dick move..

saBBfanBoy says:

This 'app' sucks so baaaaaad! And I was so excited when I saw the news on WPC. :(

smogg9 says:

what a straight basic piece of fucking shit, seriously, what the fuck is wrong with giving wp some support with ''good quality apps'' ?  i cant understand

What a piece of crap this is... Just pushed me to pay Rudy to remove the ads from his app, as I was waiting for an official app to make a decision.

itti_sam says:

i am happy that we are not as naiive as app developers think we are

either give us the real deal or F off

1 gb ram requirement for an app!!! You got to be kidding me :-(

MrSimmix says:

Pretty crappy. Back to Rudy's everbody!

terrokkinit says:

Yeah, it is just a web wrapper...but hey, I'm addicted. A good laugh never hurt anybody ;)

terrokkinit says:

And I stand corrected; there's a better app from Rudy. Downloaded. Thanks! :)

I just installed the app and tried it out. Its really nice for a start. It loads really fast and the GIF play seemlessly.

Talk4Lig says:

Worst official app.. ever

ahmedjan87 says:

Aprils fool keep it in mind

Talk4Lig says:

1st april on 31th march? Never seen that shit before.

MikeSo says:

It's like Black Friday. Starts on the afternoon of Thanksgiving now... ;)

paliotti says:

Why would they not make this app available in Canada??? Ehhh, it's ok. Rudy's 9Gag app is much nicer anyways!


Suck it 9Gag

klaw24 says:

No. Just no.

SamiHanna says:

Atleast It's the official app, this one of the new and famous apps coming to WP.

ahmedjan87 says:

I think this is Aprils fool

Yeah, sucks that you need 1GB of RAM. I love my little 520 but I'm being forced to upgrade due to app limitations. It's not fair.

Islam Adli says:

and why the hell an app like this needs 1GB ram ??

Hmmm didn't liked it.

I'll keep Rudy Huyn's app. That's the best!

but it works quite well for me

Why the hell does 9gag need 1gig for!!

MikeSo says:

Probably for all those GIFs that crash the browser otherwise... at least on my Lumia 521.

MikeSo says:

"It's not a native experience with similar functionality available in other apps."

Same old story, in other words. "Hey we have that app too! It's much worse than on other phones, but we have it!"

Probably took them several hours to make this though. That's dedication!

taymur says:

What is this whatsapp integration?

bruteech says:

1gb for 9gag, and 1,99$ price tag? Completely absurd.

croivo says:

1gb ram?!?! For app that only loads pictures?!?! Can't believe...

NathanDuarte says:

Why does this kind of app require 1GB or RAM? That doesn't make any sense.

Dean Lewis says:

Share via WhatsApp doesn't work. :P

1GB RAM required? Lolz, 9Gag ain't worth it anymore

Wait how do you know its the official app?

HanifAhmat says:

1Gb ? For what ?

Turanga06 says:

The only thing that Rudy's App is lacking comparing to this one, is the direct Whatsapp share button!

chmun77 says:

That's the problem with most Windows Phone apps, web wrappers. That's not gaining any traction with apps at all.

Lumio says:

WTH, it needs 1GB RAM. It's just a simple app. :/

iflixe says:

the app is below 1mb, and it needs 1gb of ram!! AND JUST WEB WRAPPER! WTF IS THIS A APRIL FOOL JOKE FROM 9GAG?!
