Top 3 Best Imgur Apps for Android
Imgur is an online image sharing community and image host that stands apart from many other image hosting solutions with its community-oriented approach. While you can easily access the site through your mobile web browser, installing a dedicated app greatly improves the experience. Here are our top 3 picks for the best Imgur apps for Android.

The first app on our list is called Opengur. It is the most popular third-party Imgur client on the Play Store. This free app actually packs a lot of useful features, especially considering that it comes totally without any ads.
It uses a very well executed Material design interface that is both intuitive and pleasant to look at. The built-in meme generator and native gif and gifv supports are definitely welcomed additions.
After you log in with your Imgur account, you will be able to browse different topics and explore various tags. The app lets you upload single photos or whole albums. Notification support works fine and keeps up to date on any changes and events that may concern you.
One of the best features of this great Imgur application is a support for Muzei. In case you don’t already know, Muzei is a live wallpaper that refreshes your home screen with selected images. These images are tastefully blurred to keep your icons and widgets in the spotlight. Simply double touch the wallpaper or open the Muzei app to enjoy and explore the artwork in its full glory.

Imago is another well designed Imgur viewer that lets you browse through galleries, search subreddits, and sync everything across all your devices.
The app still needs some for since few important features such as sharing gallery link from Reddit to imago are either missing or do not work properly.
That being said, Imago is worth a good try and something tells me that it could become the top Imgur app in the future. It all depends on how much work is going to be put into it.

This leaves us only with the official Imgur app for Android. With only 3.6 stars, it is easily the worst rated app on our list. Users complain about everything from an inability to create an account, access their images, regression of features, and so on.
To be fair, the app has a rather good user interface and lets you do quite a lot of different things. Well, at least on paper. You can browse through the most popular gifs and pictures, upload your photos and create albums, vote to help select the best pictures on Imgur, and share the things you like on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and more.
If only would Imgur put more work into it, it would be the go-to app. As it is though, you are much better off using Imgur through the web browser or an alternative client.
