Are you a 4chan fan who likes surfing the website for memes and other anonymously posted images? Then you will love Fortune, a full-fledged 4chan client for iOS.  Featuring a modern UI and other important features such as support for WebMs. The client is available for all versions of iOS from 6 to 8, so now you can get the 4chan experience on any iOS device.

A bit about 4chan…

For those of you who don’t know, 4chan is an imageboard website where users can post anonymously. It is split into various boards with their own specific content and guidelines. Launched on October 1, 2003, its boards were originally used for the posting of pictures and discussion of anime, as the site was modeled on Japanese imageboards. However the site quickly became popular and expanded, and has been linked to Internet subcultures and activism.


The use of 4chan, however, required you to visit the website. Now though, with Fortune, you can surf it from your smartphone! It features a modern UI and one of the most requested features – support for WebMs, which can be played with or without sound. Here are some more features you can expect;

  • Custom-sized cells in catalogue view
  • Adjustable font size
  • Animated GIF support with a save option
  • Batch/selective download
  • Automatic refresh

iOS support

Fortune requires a jailbroken device, and is available from Cydia’s BigBoss repository. It can be yours for $2.99.
