GagBook is an unofficial client for the website that allows you to easily browse the content with a simple, smooth and native user interface.

GagBook brings the fun to your device. It is light, fast and easy to use. It is so easy to kill time by viewing funny memes and videos from Just try it and you will love it.

This GagBook fork uses the undisclosed official API as data source. Finally you are able to spend your time browsing the content again after GagBook was not working due to a website change back in December 2017.


  • Simple, smooth and native Sailfish Silica UI
  • View posts in different sections, e.g. Hot, Trending, Fresh
  • Account login (with email only) and voting support
  • View comments of each post
  • Save image and video files

Currently not working/implemented:

  • The user login is not fully implemented yet and will expire every 90 days without warning (Beware: Currently NSFW/NFK content is shown nevertheless)
  • Delete/Add sections is currently disabled/not implemented
  • Comments: Embedded GIFs are only played once, this will be fixed later
  • Sometimes the download-bar stalls and does not finish, a workaround is to disable and re-enable your data connection. Please let me know if you notice a pattern or find a way to reproduce this.


I will maintain GagBook by fixing bugs and implementing new features.

  • Plans for the next update(s):
    - Finalise Comments implementation
    - Implement proper account login with corresponding features
    - Implement full Sections support
    - Rewrite Gags implementation
    - Localisation support
  • Bugs: Please report bugs, issues and your idea of improvement on GitHub or in the comments below.
  • Source Code: The source code is available on GitHub -


If you like my work and want to support it, you may want to buy me a beer or two. :)
