Memeois is available for free in the Apple App Store.
Memeois—essentially Instagram for memes—was built by 17-year-old Anushk Mittal, and it’s available for free on iOS.
Like Instagram, the app uses machine learning to search through your Facebook profile and present you with the most relevant new memes. Unfortunately, this means you’ll need to sign in to Facebook to use the app, a condition many seem unwilling to make considering the app’s one-star review comments. Once you’re logged in, curated memes will show up on your “Feed,” a vertically scrolling homepage for newly uploaded content.
If you like a meme, you can save it to your “Book” by hitting the share button underneath. This should theoretically get the algorithms to start churning out more relevant images. It’s also a great way to show your friends or spouse a bunch of memes you found while you were(n’t) working without sending them a notification every five seconds.
The “Discover” tab is a clever way to let people choose their own categories of memes in case they aren’t a fan of what the machine learning algorithms are spitting out. Just press on a meme and you’ll be taken to a folder filled with similar memes. For example, selecting an image of Amy Adams from Arrival holding a whiteboard that says “covfefe” pulls up a bunch of political memes. Other categories include college, food, celebrity, sports, and trending memes.
If you’re a creative type, or don’t think a photo is being used to its full potential, you can either create a meme from the ground up or use a quick edit feature. The editor is similar to what you’d find on most photo apps, with tools like filter, transform, text, and overlay, among others.
The “Create” tab is also pretty intuitive. Here, you have the option to make a meme from scratch by uploading images and tweaking them or by using popular “Quick Memes” like Roll Safe and the Y U No Guy. These are all very simple to use and should give you everything you need to become a memelord.
Once you create or come across a good meme, you can share it with your friends or on social media directly from the app.
If you’re not convinced yet, Memeois is ad free. Yep, you won’t be seeing any cringeworthy attempts of companies trying to be funny—just legit memes from the moment you open the app. The app also comes with support for at a glance notifications on iPhone and Apple Watch.
