GagBook brings 9GAG to Symbian

Published by at

9GAG is a renowned source of funny, ironic and pointed graphics, GIFs and jokes - and now it's available on Symbian, thanks to a new third party client, GagBook. It's not a 100% fill rate for GIFs because of RAM limitations, but most if it worked fine. See the screenshots and links below.

From the AppList description:

GagBook is an unofficial mobile app for 9GAG website, currently available for SailfishOS, MeeGo Harmattan and Symbian.

  • Simple, smooth and native UI
  • View posts in different sections, eg. hot, trending, fresh, etc
  • Full screen view of image with pinch-to-zoom
  • Login (with email only) and voting
  • View comments for each post
  • Save image
  • Share post using Harmattan's integrated sharing

Limitation/Known Issues/To Do:
- GagBook may fail to work anytime when 9GAG update their website (if this happens, you will see "error: Unable to parse response")
- Image upload is not supported
- Large image will be stretched down due to hardware limitation
- Some animated GIFs will not play properly due to hardware limitation

Here's GagBook in action:

Settings, including dark and white themes... Plus your login details to 9GAG, needed for many entries which are NSFW (Not Safe For Work)...; (right) a choice of section timelines....

Static jokes and GIFs are easily viewable, along with comments....

Larger images require scrolling on the small Symbian screens, but still work well. Wow to this Batman plot twist, eh?(!)

You can grab it here in AppList.

Hopefully the AppList Store is working out for you all. See here just in case you haven't already got this installed or if this is new to you. Also, if you have custom firmware installed, make sure you tick the option in settings to show 'unsigned' applications, you'll see extra applications!
