Fark® Not News
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Thanks for making Fark® Not News the most popular paid Fark app! It was co-developed with the Fark.com team and is integrated with the website.
What is Fark? "The first thing you should know is that Fark.com isn't a Weblog. Fark.com, the Web site, is a news aggregator and an edited social networking news site. Every day Fark receives 2,000 or so news submissions from its readership, from which we hand-pick the funny and weird notable news -- and not-news -- of the day." (www.fark.com)

What can I do with the app?
Quickly scan the latest Fark headlines in any of the standard categories (Not News, Sports, Business, Geek, Showbiz, Politics, Music, Video). Select the funniest, stupidest, or most interesting. Read what other Farkers are saying and add your own thoughts. Submit your own hilarious headlines and see if you can get "green-lit"; moved to the main pages for the world to see. Share headlines with friends via email, text message, Facebook, or Twitter. Add the best ones to your FarkFavorites (stored on your device AND synced with your Fark.com account for later viewing on a PC). Use the FarkLocator map to view all the upcoming Fark parties all over the world. View the party details and check out the comments of others who are attending. View other Farkers currently using the app and check out their Fark user profiles. Update your status, because maybe there's another Farker sitting across the bar from you right now…it could be Drew himself. Choose whether or not to share your current location, including the ability to hide yourself automatically when you're within a certain distance of "home". Later in the day while using your PC, add a few favorites from your browser and see them on the phone the next time you use the app. Do it all ad-free!
"..it's pretty clear that it's funny. Really funny. So, to both Farkers of the world and to those who have never heard of it…if you like the site, there’s an app for that, too."
Bonnie Eisenman, 148apps.com
"If you’re a fan of Fark, it’s for you. And if you haven’t yet joined in, why not?"

What's New in Version 3.1
* Minor bug fixes.
I reported this group twice to the better business bureau. They have forums for debate, but if they don't like your opinions, they invoke secret rules to ban you. They have no rule or definition for "trolling" but they arbitrarily enforce it. They have no rule or definition for "flamewar" but they will deny you service that you pay for, if you "violate" this secret rule. I followed the posted rules (e.g. No threats or insults). They operate like liberal Gestapo agents and single out even polite conservative voices.
This app is very slow when loading pages, also it has a tendency to crash and pages are hijacked. You are better off using your browser.
