"Images about everything in a forum for everyone"

Reviewed by / Nov 29, 2013

Chanu is a browser for 4chan, the global imageboard forum

If you were looking for a handy 4chan Android client, welcome aboard. Chanapps Software's Chanu provides an accessible layout for all the hilarious boards, topics and images 4chan has to offer.

It features "All boards" by default, from where you can find alphabetically ordered all the main boards, its name and what's about. Tap any of the thumbnails to access it or mark it as favorites (you can also access boards from the drop-down menu). There you can find all the images and discussions posted within that board. You can sort them by reply count, image count and date, favorite them and read the board rules.

Obviously, as 4chan doesn't require any account to post (users post anonymously), you can start a new thread whenever you want.

Chanu is set in a simple yet polished layout. You can shift from list to grid view, the way you feel more comfortable and use the hidden left-side bar (Holo-style) to navigate through sections.

In a nutshell, Chanu is one of the handiest and most complete 4chan Android clients. Recommended.

    Every time I try to post, it says "Could not post: You Are"

    There are few limitations but it is mobile and so it couldn't be as good as desktop.

    Nice design and widgets, but handles images extremely poor.

    No thumbnail. No thumbnail. No thumbnail. Gets old... fix for 5 star!

    Best app but there are flaws... Changing orientation loads you back to board from thread, refreshes on its own. I'd like an option to lock orientation as well as a few bug fixes that I've seen mentioned here. I'd definitely pay if these issues were fixed in the next version
