9GAG launches official app for Windows Phone to make you giggle

9GAG (www.9gag.com) is an online resource of funny, witty and downright strange media, much like a condensed edition of a handful of Reddit communities. The website hasn't yet had an official app for Windows Phone available for use, but this has recently changed with the official 9GAG client now listed on the store.

Wether you're after some funny pictures, animated GIFs, videos, memes or just a shot of 'WTF', 9GAG boasts an expansive collection and is updated on a daily basis. There's a slight issue with the Windows Phone app the website has launched, however. It's not a native experience with similar functionality available in other apps.

That said, it's an official title on the store. You're able to log into your 9GAG account, upvote/downvote entries and engage with the community as a whole. That's where the list of features comes to an end. There's no Live Tile, lockscreen or Modern UI support, which is a shame as we've seen some solid third-party 9GAG work.

You can download 9GAG from the Windows Phone Store for free (will go commercial soon). If the app doesn't make you laugh and giggly inside, we recommend you check out Rudy Huyn's unofficial 9GAG Windows Phone app. It's a feature-rich app with a full Windows Phone experience. Thanks, Lance, for the tip!
