The Cracked Reader

By E.W. Scripps Company

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


If you like Cracked, own a mobile device and want to appear more attractive to the opposite sex, this is the app you’ve been waiting for.

Chances are you’ve been navigating Cracked by tapping, pinching and groping your touch screen. Could that be why the man/woman of your dreams has yet to tackle you in public and make love to you? Almost definitely.

The Cracked Reader combines all of the mind blowing facts (did you know a zombie apocalypse is scientifically possible?), pop culture analysis (who’s the greatest Batman of all time?), and info-graphics (a body map explaining what your neck tattoo says about you to prospective employers) that have made Cracked the fastest growing humor site on the internet.


* An easy to navigate, fast loading feed featuring all of our latest content.
* The Cracked Reader-exclusive Editor’s picks, a daily updating feed of the best of our thousands of articles, hand selected by Michael Swaim, Robert Brockway, Dan O’Brien, David Wong and Jack O’Brien.
* Faster loading and easier to navigate versions of all of the content that used to be so difficult to read in the bathroom.
* Video and photo feeds of Craptions, and more!

Fans are already calling it a major breakthrough in laughing at your mobile phone technology:

“Like the Onion App, except it actually has articles!” – Comedy fan

“The thing they said about me is totally true. Buy this app or I’ll think you’re a pervert, and we'll never get it on.” –Man / Woman of your dreams.

A+ content, crappy ad update

I'm a huge fan of your website and love reading your articles and browsing through the occasional photoplasty. For the past several years, I have generally gotten all of your content through the Cracked mobile app. However, for the past few days it's been automatically redirecting to the Apple App Store to convince me to buy Candy Crush, etc. im not really sure who decided this new update was a good idea, but it makes enjoying your content very difficult. It's not really worth it to have to close out the App Store and pull up what I was reading again 5 times in one article. I understand that you guys have to make money through some sort of advertising. This pop up/redirecting is not the way to do it. It's extremely inconvenient and frustrating. I'm sure it'd be far more preferred if we just had to scroll past an add between points in your articles. Your ratings have already suffered in the App Store because of the change. Please change this because I'd hate to lose that method of access to your content(really the only way I have time to access your content these days). I would even pay $5 for a premium app where I didn't have to deal with ad redirects.

What happened?

I have been a fan of cracked since I was in 7th grade. I've been reading these articles ever since and been using the app for a long time. But it's just not worth it anymore. I can barely go four or five seconds without either being ripped out of the app to go to the App Store to look at candy crush. If not that then intrusive ads that don't even load because of the slow internet pop up, being exited out from before the product even appears. I love cracked, I do. Some weeks are better than others for articles sure but even the worst week is pretty awesome. I can forgive the app for not containing or loading everything that goes on the app. I can even forgive the lack of an update for quick fixes that causes me to look at Robert durst and a humanized inflatable and sexualized my little pony character despite my disdain for both (hasn't updated in like a year). But it's gotten to the point where I can't even enjoy the content anymore because of the ads. Want more money? Make me pay $5 or put ads between entries or before articles. But don't take away from my viewing pleasure like this. I'm tolerant but I actually have grown to hate this app, hence why it is being deleted. After countless hours of enjoyment, cracked, thanks for everything. I'm sorry it couldn't end on a better note.

Love this app!

Cracked has been my favorite humor site since I discovered it like 4 years ago. I gave this app only 4/5 stars because occasionally photoplasty doesn't load the pictures and very,very rarely articles don't fully load. However the most recent update gave soo much more content and browsing ability that this app is the must have for anyone who likes sarcastic, immature (yet intelligent) humor filled with video game, pop-culture, science, technology and dick joke references. If it wasn't for this app, I might actually socialize during my breaks at work. But as it stands, this is far more enjoyable than listening to my co-workers complain about how much they hate so and so for doing this and that and what not.

Update: what's with the people talking about ads? I've not once come across a single ad on this app unless u click a link which will take u to a we page rather than just a new page in the app infrastructure. And no ad has EVER taken me out of the actual app and into the App Store in my 2-3 years of using it.
