Although Microsoft likes to boast about productivity in Windows 10 and Mobile, there is no reason why we can't have some fun too. Monocle Giraffe is a relatively new app that has become my new time-waster when I need a good laugh.
At its heart, Monocle Giraffe is a simple creation. It's a browser for the site Imgur where memes, photos, and animated GIFs are posted and often shared on Reddit. What I like about Monocle Giraffe though are the design and features.
Launching the app brings to the Most Viral section aka what is trending on Imgur and Reddit at the moment. Switching to the next section, you can browse popular subreddits like Dank Memes, Cats, Funny, and more. Just as you expect, you can add your favorite subreddits by using the add buttons and doing a search.
Under Search, you can find media under Reddit, Posts, and GIFs for something in particular.
Finally, you can log into Imgur and manage your account. Monocle Giraffe also lets you upload and download images, vote on Imgur, favorite pictures, share using the native picker, and read and leave comments. It does it all and I am not sure what else the developer can add.
There is not much else to say about Monocle Giraffe except that it works well, does what you expect it to, and is a great source for some laughs (especially if you're into internet humor). It's also an excellent example of a Windows Store app using the Universal Windows Platform. And yes, it is available on PC and phone working well with touch or a mouse and keyboard.
Combined with Meme Generator Suite, another personal favorite, and Monocle Giraffe is just a fun must-have app that is perfect for a quick distraction. Best of all is it's free.
