Grow Up

I've been reading cracked for years now, but I've had to delete the app. The writers can no longer make it through an article without spewing some kind of hate or politically correct bull. Article about toasters? That cheeto is a racist! Article about adopting puppies? Careful, you might be racist too! It's absolutely ridiculous. Grow up. A political article is fine, but learn to differentiate between humor and hate.

Also, many articles on mobile are not clickable, so the app clearly isn't functioning at full capacity either.

Fun time waster

I agree with other reviews much better than the mobile site. I enjoy reading the short articles on my break. Some of the articles are very biased. But hey maybe I should take up their offer and write an article for them. Great way to spend ten minutes on break but don't take too seriously.

Mediocre Reader

The app is alright. Better than the mobile web version but pretty terrible.

The article frequently loses days worth of articles. Articles are frequently bugged so that clicking on them redirects to the wrong article. Only worth it if you really need some Cracked on the go, otherwise the regular website is the way to go.
