Cheezburger Network Launches iPhone App; Risks Landing on Own Failblog

The Cheezburger Network of comedy websites has released a free iPhone app (iTunes) that aggregates the images from across more than 40 sites of curated humorous content. It’s a handy way to peruse the wide range of content, though the app is a little bit buggy at launch. The content displayed is limited to the images posted across sites like The Daily What, Failblog, Failbook and ROFL Razzi, and in some cases the images really need the text that accompanies them on the Web in order to make any sense.

For at least The Daily What, accessing the site in mobile Safari works better.

The ad-supported app was built using mobile content management system RedFoundry. The app really isn’t great, but perhaps it will be improved in subsequent launches. Perhaps fans of the niche titles in the network won’t care; it could be good enough. When considering the use of these kinds of DIY app publishing platforms, however (and there are a number of them now), you might want to check out the Cheezburger app as one data point to consider.
