Honestly, I was a bit hesitant at first to pay for an app that wouldn’t let you save images, but I bit the bullet and got it. Since a lot of people seem to be confused on how to do that, here you go. You tap said image you want to save to view it, then swipe up, tap ‘share’ and then choose to save to photos. Literally not that hard. Anyways, this thing is amazing. Thank you so, so much developer. I’ve never had a better experience browsing 4Chan on my phone than this. Totally worth the $2, I highly recommend it for those in search of an app that allows you to have a better browsing experience. I have yet to run into any bugs as of writing this review, but I look forward to any upcoming updates eagerly.

finally this is a thing!!!

the app itself is pretty average in performance. no hang-ups to speak of so far. it certainly makes browsing much easier and faster while on my phone. the thing is, i do have one problem with “the chan” and to be honest, it almost ruins the entire experience for me. pictures cannot be downloaded via the app!! this is a travesty! 4chan is an ‘image board’ what am i supposed to do when i want to download an image? open up my web browser, thats what.

developers, if youre reading this, and if theres any way to fix this issue (which im sure there is), please, find some kindness down in the bottom of your heart, and enable us to download pictures through your app. it would mean the world to me.

Finally 4chan on iOS


This is the app I've always wanted for browsing 4chan, ever since my lowly iPhone 3G. I've tested this on both iPhone and iPad alike and it has worked amazing.
This IS THE DEFINITIVE experience for browsing 4chan on your iOS device, hands down. (Also accessible is the Russian 2ch, if that's your bag.) Preferable even to desktop, due to the clever inclusion of a gallery within each thread, enabling you to quickly swipe to the next .webm in that YLYL thread and the like. This is much more intuitive than anything currently available on a browser.
Well worth your $2.
The Chan is love. The Chan is life.
