Great for mobile use
For some things I prefer using this mobile app to going to the actual Fark website. For browsing of posts, the app works well, with no ads to clutter things (though you really should support Fark by subscribing to TotalFark and/or BareFark) If you want to do more complicated things, like post a picture or ‘edit’ a previous post, then the iPad interface makes things difficult. There appears to be no difference in operation after ‘upgrading’ to iOS12, on the iPad or the iPhone

Solid, has improved
I really enjoy using this app. I’ve been a Farker since before broadband was a thing, and always will be. This app nicely arranges the content and keeps your place as you bounce out to the stories and back. Unfortunately, most news sites in mobile are just awful, but that’s not FARK’s fault. So there’s only so many I can sit through. But the headlines and discussion are great. Thanks for providing this app to the Farkers our there.

A must for the mobile farker
The interface is an excellent mobile interface to the Fark website for the farker on the go. Or on the couch. I particularly like the alert system. You can tune it to both headlines and replies to your posts in the comments. I use it every day.

I get all my news from Fark. Com!
If it weren’t for this app I wouldn’t have any idea what’s going on in the world. It works really for me and I don’t have a problem with ads like others have mentioned. Much more convenient than the regular site.

Don’t use this app
App used to be useable. The amount of pop ups and annoying advertisements make this app unusable. Open up a browser window with the full ( Not mobile) site and your experience will be a factor of ten to a hundred times better. I tried to give no stars after using this app for years. This app now deserves zero stars. Can’t rate it without at least 1 star.

Great App... except for one thing.
It doesn’t look like you can clear the cache, history or cookies (let’s be honest... it’s a browser.) The only way to stop the stupid ‘you’ve won a gift card’ popups is to completely re-install the app.

Constantly keeps popping a very obtrusive full screen video with zero way to turn off the feature. Also, unlike four years ago this app has ads.

Been a Fark Member,(LBS not my Fark handle), for years and it's a fun site. As for the app it works about as well as any other with minor glitches here and there, but that's par for the course for the world we live in. Nothing's perfect. Perfection is for the emotionally disordered anyhow. I've read others speak of the adds with the tiny x that doesn't work. Well you don't say! Geez that kind of bs is all over the net, not just Fark. Join! Make a handle, develop some personal satire and have some fun.

Avoid the forums.
Internet chats used to be a fun place but not anymore. Mods quickly delete opinions they don’t agree with and ban you for not being a part of their echo chamber.

No support for dynamic type
You get one font size, you can’t make the font bigger, makes the app pretty useless on certain devices. The default font is pretty tiny.

News with a heavy leftist spin
The headline teasers are real funny. Up to date news stories grabbed from the interwebs with an emphasis on bashing anything Conservative while protecting the looney left liberal to a fault. The comment section is filled with what seems like basement dwelling uberlibs, trolls, wannabe comedians, hippie elites, race baiters, obamorons, guilty white liberals, know it all collage children and a few common sense clear thinking Consevatives. If you're coming here for news don't expect any bad press about obama, his administration, or his friends. This is the kind of site that gets it marching orders from the democrat puppetmasters and they will totally ignore the truth if it means staying in good favor with the current regime. An example would be the hundreds of comments attacking the director of a UTube video for causing the Libya terrorist attack. The useful sheep are plentiful at this site.

Works on iPad, good site
The current release works on the iPad. The previous release would freeze after switching to another app, then switching back. The current release also adds a page loading progress bar which confirms it hasn't frozen. If you're not familiar with the Fark site, it's a news aggregator with a humorous bent. The commenters tend to be well informed, civil, and funny.

Solid - but could be a bit better
For one, this app doesn't crap out unexpectedly- a common problem in the unofficial app. Second, I like the navigation between sections in this app much better. However, I'll echo someone else's comment here: would like to have access to the comments from the article rather than going back to the main screen. That's a quality feature on the unofficial app.

Now you can waste time in the loo, too
As if it weren't enough to be able to pass your 9-5 cubicle slave time on Fark, now you can Fark around on your train or bus commute (please don't Fark when driving), whilst walking down the street to the office, waiting in line for the overpriced unhealthy take away, & even in the loo. I foresee productivity hitting an all-time low since Fark created a mobile app.

need some ad blocking!
the app is pretty easy to use but I'm deleting it due to frequent full screen ads (often with incredibly small or nonfunctioning Xs to make you think you can close the ad but causing you to "click" on it instead) when I click a link or being taken to the app store by ads trying to shove their stupid game in my face. no settings to allow me to stop either of these obnoxious behaviors... so I'll stick to my computer where I can block that garbage!

So far, everyone is right
Yes, there are sometimes ads with nonfunctioning Xs that get in the way. Yes, it doesn't take you back to where you were after you enter an article, but returns you to the top of the page. There is no way to save in app. But you get to read the articles in a clean interface, with a notion of what level of sanity it requires prior to opening it, generally. I like it's alert feature, but would love to be able to set it for levels...hey! for general alert and maybe heyyyy! for breaking news? I do use it as one of my dependable sources for news and entertainment. The bugs are mild enough for me to still enjoy the site.

Use the non official app instead
I had been using the non-official app for Fark for a long time, but then decided to try out the official app thinking it would be better. I couldn't have been more wrong... The official app doesn't keep your place after reading the articles , you must go back to the main page to get to the comments sections, you must be logged in as a member to even read anything, and it's clunky. I don't see any benefit to this app . Doom on you official Fark app!

Farking App!
Farking waste of time, I have check it several times a day to see all the great new stories! I forward to my friends & family and have a great time commenting on with all kinds of Farkers. It's the 1st thing I check in the morning and the last I check at night. Thanks FARK I waste lots of time enjoying your site.

Great way to stay abreast of the headlines
... both serious and otherwise. With the push notifications enabled, I've gotten immediate news of a celebrity death or a catastrophe. But this is Fark, so the app is also a fun way to read the sarcastic comments on the frivolous news stories, as well.

Almost better than surstromming
I had this app installed in my 1987 Ford Escort EXP, and the gas mileage was negatively impacted. I tried adding ketchup, but that was the wrong move - it attracted weasels. So then I figured I ought to take it out for a fresh shave and a massage, and that pretty much did the trick. I now enjoy this app with chocolate sauce and bourbon. It's totally the crunk and stuff.

Notifications don't always work, browser won't reorient itself when phone is rotated, cannot see URL of link before clicking, only one browsing window at a time, cannot copy URL of target website, cannot scroll to last post in a large thread forcing you to hit next page 50 times, basically just acts as an extra inferior safari page when you are currently using up your quota. Other than that, nice app.

First review of an app.. Has everything you'd need.. Only thing I have a problem with is the fact I can't hear any video from the app.. This is most likely an issue with my phone settings.. And FARK has an "open in safari" feature..

New and Improved!
My latest gripe with the app--that when it linked to news sites it made them look all Internet 1.0--seems to have been fixed. It seems to be firing on all cylinders right now. My faith in Drew has been restored. Carry on...

We don't make news, we mock news!
With the ways of the world today, FARK is my go-to for all thing newsworthy (and not-news worthy). At times all that is needed to get a non-biased education is not read TFA and skip straight to the comments section. YMMV.

Launch Safari automatically pls
Would love if the "Read Story" and "Read Comments" buttons could be set to open a new Safari tab externally rather than embedding the browser in-app. still, liking the alerts at least :)

I live Fark but the app always is buggy. For instance if I'm in the entertainment section and read an article then exit it takes me back to the main site but won't load entertainment again. It's annoying. This problem I have on iPhone 4. On the new iPad mini to works much better. 1 star for iPhone 4, 5 stars for mini.

I've been a Farker since 2002. I love how this app keeps me up to date with the world 30 min faster than most news sites. Way to go Drew, way to take a Chance on a Storm of info. Run through Heather fields unto the Sierra Nevada mountains to celebrate you success.

Fark sounds like fart if you think about it
You'll laugh, you'll cry... Mostly because you've never seen the seedy underbelly of the news cycle like you will with Fark. Also, I prefer Booker's to Maker's, which puts me on Drew's hit list

Great app
This app is really fun and nice to mess with. I check it often for my news. The app would get five stars but sometimes I get an alert and I can't find the headline I was alerted with. Maybe I missed it but, this app needs a search engine for archives. Great job though guys thanks!

Works well but frame is annoying
Nice app for my fix during the day. The real site is blocked at work so this helps. The frame, however, makes it difficult to close pop-ups. If I see that flurking Mazda ad with the close button behind the top border one more time, this app is getting dropped like a rock.

The point if this app is the tigger alerts, that notify you breaking news, and news you wanna hear about. possible triggers are: Video tab, geek tab, shoes, Los Angeles, so you are never out of touch with the things you care about.

Great content
Sometimes difficult to find the piece your looking to read if you get off topic. Refreshing to the beginning/newest article is frustrating if you're reading several screens down.
