Have you posted an image on the internet recently? If you didn't use Imgur, you have upset a certain contingent of internet denizens who are sure to let you know the error of your ways. The Imgur app on Android has just gotten a nice update to v1.3, making it even easier to do the right thing.
It's important to be able to admit when you're wrong. Imgur, everyone's favorite image hosting site and backbone of Reddit, took its mobile app out of beta on Monday. The developers removed the ads late yesterday after getting a piece of everyone's mind.
So, now the app is back to it's ad-free state, but that isn't the entirety of the update. The widget has been revamped and a few crashes sorted out.
The Imgur app has gone through rapid iterations since it launched as a Australian exclusive back in April. The UI has been partially redesigned, performance has been improved, and new features have been added. The app was updated yesterday to 0.1.13 without the beta label.
Imgur has become one of the standard Internet destinations for quick and dirty photo sharing, but its official Android app leaves a lot to be desired - though to be fair, it's still in beta. The latest update adds a much-needed Holo interface... sort of. The UI has definitely been improved over previous versions, and according to the changelog, it's Holo. While it's clear that the designers were trying for a more standardized app, the guidelines have been followed in some places and not others.
Imgur's official Android app first hit the scene back in early-ish April, but was then geo-restricted to Australia (later expanded to UK and Canada) whilst in its beta period, leaving tens of thousands (possibly even millions) of angry image-searchers without, well, an app. Hell was raised, tempers flared, blah blah blah. The calm settled in once again, and life went back to normal for the bulk of us.
But now, everything changes.
Everyone's favorite image hosting site has just made its way into the Play Store. Of course I'm referring to Imgur, "the simple image sharer." Unfortunately, the app is georestricted to Australia during its beta period, so those of us in the rest of the world will have to wait a bit to get our hands on it.
Those who can use it, however, will be able to browse through Imgur's content, comment and vote on images, upload directly from their device, manager their account, and more.
