A few weeks back we showed you guys Grin for Windows Phone. It was (and still is) the best app for accessing Imgur (www.imgur.com) on Windows Phone, a site dedicated to free image hosting and sharing, often considered to power sites like Reddit. The latest update that came out today widens the gap between itself and any potential third-party Imgur apps. Let’s check it out.
Fire up the Windows Phone Store and you’ll see version 1.8 for Grin is now available. When Grin first launched it allowed you to do all the basic things you’d want to do. You could browse all the different sections of Imgur, view comments, albums, profile and more. The latest update improves some core functionality and adds features that we’re happy to see. This is what’s new:
- Comments and replies
- Full screen image viewer for uploaded image
- Subreddit enhancements
- Advanced sorting in gallery
- Fixed Facebook sign in
The most obvious feature that will be welcomed is the ability to now leave comments to images and reply to other comments. It was missing in previous versions of Grin, but we’re digging having it available now. It works great too. Subreddits have some slight enhancements as well. When we first mentioned the app we couldn’t exactly figure out an easy way to pin your favorite subreddits to the app. Now a star icon is present to easily add it to your lists.
When viewing images you can sort through them by newest first or most popular. If you sort them by popularity you can specify the time window by week, month, year, or all time. It’s a handy feature to quickly browse the top images in a section as they change over the course of a week.
Like before, Grin has no ads and is fully free for Windows Phone 8. You can donate to the developer through the app if you think it’s worth continued support. Tip: It is worth it.
