Using this version of Windows 8 9GAG app, was quite a good experience. The photos (basically Memes) are very funny. They can make you laugh really hard! One good thing about the app is, it updates on regular basis, so that you’ll get all the latest photos, without manually refreshing the app. The app has a good looking user interface.

One good thing here, is, the app shows you tips in this bottom flyout. The tips are basically instructions for using the app. Click on the bulb icon besides the tip, to see more tips.
