The Chan App Reviews

0 add

Videos are choppy

The WebM are choppy and unwatchable. Please fix

Needs work

Still needs ability to save whole threads and webMs. Also now when swiping up to share a webm the menu pops for a second then disappears almost immediately after. iPhone 7+ iOS 11.1.1

plz fix

Latest update broke video player scrubbing on iPhone 8... :( 5 stars cause app is cool when working. Would recommend buying.

It’s good, I guess

As far as I know, this is the only chan app that isn’t perma banned and it works a lot better than 4chan’s mobile site. It’s optimized for iPhone X and it hasn’t crashed on me once yet. You could side load Fortune, but it’s not really actively maintained and I’m lazy. Lots of features still in development that you can check out on the author’s website. Well worth the couple of bucks you would’ve spent on a cup of coffee if you want to browse 4chan on an iPhone without wanting to smash your phone.

Finally 4chan on iOS

This is the app I've always wanted for browsing 4chan, ever since my lowly iPhone 3G. I've tested this on both iPhone and iPad alike and it has worked amazing. This IS THE DEFINITIVE experience for browsing 4chan on your iOS device, hands down. (Also accessible is the Russian 2ch, if that's your bag.) Preferable even to desktop, due to the clever inclusion of a gallery within each thread, enabling you to quickly swipe to the next .webm in that YLYL thread and the like. This is much more intuitive than anything currently available on a browser. Well worth your $2. The Chan is love. The Chan is life.


Keep up the good work.

Worth the $2

Does as expected.

Few things i might have missed or want

The only thing that i can think of at this time that i really need is the ability to put in my 4chan pass so i don't have to put in a captcha and can get around region bans pls. Other than that i do like the layout and the feel of browsing. Worth $2 only when i can finally use my 4chan pass.

Read all reviews

Since finding the + to add more boards, I’ve used the app every day, & love it! Thank you dev!

Not worth it

This is crap, nothing works right. I can’t get any images to come up even though it says it’s compatible with my phone.

Why the hell doesn’t this allow me to save images to my gallery?

Seriously a key feature to save images is missing from the app.

New Favorite!

Honestly, I was a bit hesitant at first to pay for an app that wouldn’t let you save images, but I bit the bullet and got it. Since a lot of people seem to be confused on how to do that, here you go. You tap said image you want to save to view it, then swipe up, tap ‘share’ and then choose to save to photos. Literally not that hard. Anyways, this thing is amazing. Thank you so, so much developer. I’ve never had a better experience browsing 4Chan on my phone than this. Totally worth the $2, I highly recommend it for those in search of an app that allows you to have a better browsing experience. I have yet to run into any bugs as of writing this review, but I look forward to any upcoming updates eagerly.

Needs bug fix improvements

It’s worth $2 so you better be hard at work trying to improve it at least every two weeks my dude.

Really good, could get better

Please add list order for the catalog (most replies, bump order, last reply ,etc) to the preferences menu. If a in app gallery for saved images is possible I think that would be useful too. (Update 10/16/17) The app is getting better and better and I'm really thankful that the Dev created it. Use it all the time and seriously, its great. I'd still like to see a thread order for the mode. Not sure if the threads are sorted by bump order by default but I'd like To have that option. Thanks

Great app until this past update

Ever since the new update webms don't play with sound. Also how does one save an image on the app?

Better than expected

Exactly what I was looking for. Runs great and is very handy for checking my favorite boards while I’m out. My only issue, which has already been mentioned, is the fact there’s no list order for catalog mode. I would really prefer to sort it by newest first. Add this and the app will be perfect.

Missing crucial features

I see in the last update that you added multiple new gestures and fixed other stuff that minimally affects the users experience. But when I use 4chan/this app, I need to be able to access the user-input catalog filters, the hide/report post features, and so on. When I want to try to use it, few expectations in my experience are able to meet my needs

Excellent app! Webm support!

The app works like it was intended. The 2chan board is in Russian though. The 4chan board is in English. Excellent work! Is there any plan to change the icon to something a clover?


Constantly crashes and there’s no save function or share function?????

Nearly perfect

This app is super fluid and easy to use. In a lot of ways I prefer it to clover on the android side. Haven’t had any issues as of yet, but not being able to save images is kind of a dealbreaker for me considering I’m a jpeg hoarder. Hopefully this functionality will come in a future update. EDIT- Dev either added image saving or I am a dumbo. Either way I love the layout and the app has been steadily getting better. Hoping for a quicker way to save images but that's literally my only gripe. Big fan thank you so much for the time put into this!

Pretty good, just needs a few minor tweaks.

Needs to let you copy and share image links, not just the actual images. It would also be great if we could get 2chan in its original Japanese, or also in English, since it's already been translated to Russian. Lastly, it would be nice if you could add boards from other sites like 8chan, 420chan, etc.

Gifs don’t save

Gifs don’t save correctly, but other than that and some other bugs it’s not bad. I’d like to see a picture count like 20 of 55 when scrolling through pictures. Would also like the picture scroll to stay hidden after a picture is saved and scrolled to next photo unless I tap to bring it up.

Update on original review

For some reason if I watch a couple webms in succession my phone freezes and hard locks, thus causing me to force shut down


Don’t buy this stupid trash apple wont even give me a refund it won’t even load webms or any content

Horrible on iOS 11.

Webm locks up phone after iOS 11 update. Used to work great. I will update review once that is fixed. Latest update has fixed everything.. Thanks Devs for the update

Fantastic app, webm issues

As mentioned before, after updating to iOS11, webms in the app cause the entire phone to freeze until reset.

No adult boards

How tf do I save stuff?

Make it compatible with IOS 11

After i updated to IOS 11 i have problems. Videos/webms make the phone freeze or crash. Please fix it. Its the best app on my phone.

Immediately crashes at webms

Have to reboot to get it to clear

Great app!

It’s a great app, but currently random webms cause the app to crash and lock up the entire phone for a few minutes

Crashes phone after update to iOS 11

After updating my phone to the new IOS, it crashes quite frequently. If I try to play a webm file or gif the first few may work, but it always eventually freezes, and after a couple minutes restarts my phone. Happened 6 or 7 times within the span of an hour. Still 3 stars because beforehand it was great and I know it’ll be fixed.

iOS 11

Love the app, but since the firmware update for iOS 11, WebM's continuously freeze the phone. Causing me to reset it nearly every time i try to watch a video.


I will give 5 star if this is fixed or explained to me... For some reason I can't view images posted by anons unless I'm on the catalog, and when I open the thread I can't even see OPs image or anyone else's Help?

4 out of 5 anons agree...

Best way to keep up with /pol/ while you're on the run. Already amazing but it could be better - development seems to be steady with pretty regular updates, so it's definitely getting there. Dev is always listening to feedback and adding useful features.

Finally a chan browser

FYI you have to go into settings to see photos 👍🏼

Good but needs features

I'll adjust my rating IF we can save images. I'm guessing this app is allowed in the App Store is because we can't save images. The moment we can save images I'll bet apple pulls the app.


It navigates well and has good features. If I could suggest some future enhancements: Notifications for post and thread replies Expanding the OP image without opening the thread A way to mass remove favorites Post IDs and flags Thank you

Great app

People should review how the app works before complaining. My only request is that I'd like to have a way to save photos if possible. The high resolution photos make great phone wallpapers.

No photos?

app navigates and works well except you can't see photos?? on an image sharing board?

Great app but still no photos

Would love to see photos with each thread

Lol fixed it good app

Pictures don't work


Supports 2ch and 4chan, even has webm support


Wew laddy

Confused on how to access images

Its a really smooth app for looking at threads but only the text part, im not sure how to access the images or webm's in threads or if that is even a feature of the app. Images are half the enjoyment of threads, so I can only give half stars so far. If you dont care about images that much, you'll definitely like this app. Hopefully its a feature that i havnt found yet or will be implemented in future updates.

Almost Perfect

This app is fantastic for browsing. However, I would like an easier way to save a gif or video as the original format, it gets extremely frustrating. Will 5 star when fixed.

Good smooth app

Holy crap much better with the catalog, anon number, and all the other features added. The only reason why I haven't rated 5 stars is because there's no ability to sort threads


Solid, beautiful browser for all the stanky danky memes


10/10 would download again

Great, and hopefully will get better

The app has gotten me back into visiting 4chan again. There is a recurring bug that annoys me though. If you post an image in a thread and then want to post another one, you have to back out of the thread and then go back to it. If you don't, hitting the plus icon to add an image won't do anything. Now for some minor annoyances / feature requests. 1) In the modules section there are checkmarks beside 4chan and 2chan, which gives the impression that you can disable modules you're not interested in. Tapping on the checkmarks does not actually do anything though. Unless I learn Russian, I'm probably never going to have a need for 2chan. If you work this out, it would also be appreciated if the icon for 4chan disappeared on the main page, since you would only have one board to select from anyway. 2) It would be nice if the favorites page would indicate if a thread has been closed (or maybe when the last post was). Some threads continue on with the same title, and so I am often unsure which one is the old one. I have a few other suggestions but do not want to bombard you at this point. The other reviewers have also pointed out a few good things. The app is great and I think it has the potential to become even better than the 4chan website.

Good but can be better

Wish it was more like clover on android Sometimes it crashes when watching webms Most important thing is NOTIFICATIONS AND KNOWING WHEN A THREAD IS ARCHIVED
