The Definitive 4chan Experience
I had previously complained about not being able to save images. Since then, two things have happened:
1. I figured out how to save images and felt like an idiot.
2. An update was released that dramatically improved WebM performance.
This is without question the best way to use 4chan on iOS.
Alls it needs is a better light theme. And maybe a few Quality Of Life additions, but currently it’s a solid app. Definitely worth the 1.99$
Implement the pass already
Missing important feature
The problem with this app, is it does not tell you when a thread goes 404 or has been archived. Without that, it's hard to sort out which threads to keep watching and which threads to close. I find that a very important feature in any imageboard program, and I consider its absence to be a bug.
Less important, but still desirable features would include notifications when your posts are replied to in threads you are watching, the ability to post images directly from a Google Images search result (this was one of my favorite features of the long-gone Anonyma app), the ability to do reverse image searches through iqdb and yandex as well as Google, and integration with the various archives.
I strongly suggest the developer take a look at the "4chanX" browser script on Github for an idea of what features users consider desirable, and have come to expect from their site experience.
I will update this review as the requested features are added. I am a developer with some familiarity with the site's API, so feel free to contact me if you need clarification.
Severe oversights make app unusable.
I got a three day ban last week for posting duplicate threads. Normally this wouldn't be a big deal, however on the iPhone browsers, captchas no longer work and you can't post. I've tried safari, chrome, brave, opera, and others, yet they all crash.
What this means is that you can no longer get your unban message, meaning a temporary ban is effectively a permanent ban on the device (until changes are made). I've contacted the developer with no response, and now the app is effectively useless.
I’m giving this app 1 star until refreshing from catalog view becomes possible. There’s absolutely no excuse for such a basic feature to be missing, especially for the people who only browse threads in catalog view. I did contact the developer about this months ago but was ignored.
I wish you could upload images from iCloud though.
Last few updates completely broke video sharing to other apps etc. Can’t even drag up on the video in gallery to get to the share options.
What did I just purchase?
Garbage, plain and simple. Does not work at all.
Video player still needs more work

The new update is causing the webms to blink and flicker repeatedly. Also the gallery tends to appear and not go away after touching the screen. Everything else works smoothly
