Imgur Android App finally available in the Google Play Store

The most popular and fastest growing image sharing website – Imgur—made its way to the Google Play store. The application offers a simple and elegant interface that allows users to upload and  browse Imgur on their Android device.


The earlier beta of the image sharing website was location restricted and was available for Australian residents only. Finally, it has been released for the rest of the world as well. The app allows users to browse the Imgur gallery, comment on images, share them, manage your account and albums, and upload images, and much more from your Android handset. The application offers its users with almost all the features that are offered by the web version.


The application will be a life saver of all those Imgur addicts who want to stay up to date at all times. I played around with the app for some time and to me, it looks like the perfect application if you spend most of your time on Imgur, browsing images and videos, share them and much more.


According to Alan Schaaf, founder and CEO of Imgur,

We’ve seen mobile usage double annually, up from about 7% in January 2011 to 30% at the beginning of this year. The decision to build and release our own app was due to a substantial increase in mobile browser usage over time. We’re trying to develop a closer, more intimate relationship with our users and we think people’s phones are the best way to reach out and do that.

Everything is going mobile these days, and with such a brilliant service, sharing images on the internet is now much easier and is just a few taps away. You can download Imgur from the Google Play Store.
