GagBook is an unofficial client for the 9GAG.com website that allows you to easily browse 9GAG with a simple, smooth and native user interface.

GagBook brings the fun to your device. It is light, fast and easy to use. It is so easy to kill time by viewing funny memes and videos from 9GAG. Just try it and you will love it.

This GagBook fork uses the undisclosed official 9GAG API as data source. Finally you are able to spend your time browsing 9GAG again after GagBook was not working due to a 9GAG website change back in December 2017.

 

Currently not working/implemented:

  • The user login is not fully implemented yet and will expire every 90 days without warning (Beware: Currently NSFW/NFK content is shown nevertheless)
  • Delete/Add sections is currently disabled/not implemented
  • It seems that in some occasions some gags are loaded multiple times - I'm investigating the root cause

Donations:

I am spending a lot of my spare time fixing and updating GagBook to provide you with a native app for browsing 9GAG. If you like it, show me your support by buying me a beer or two. :)

Development:

I intend to update GagBook by fixing bugs and adding a bunch of new features, if there is enough interest.

Very good 9gag client, smooth and clear, love it ! Any plans about translations ? Would be great if that app could be translated via Transifex or similar ;-) Cheers !

Yes translations are already planned but I need to implement some other things first. :)
