    Well, this is some great news!

    However, the question remains: is it as good as Rudy's app?

    Not compatible with 512MB RAM devices.
    Why does an app like this need 1GB or more of RAM??

    Since it's only for 1GB devices I'm sure Rudy's app would still rule.It surprises me that an app like this requires 1GB.

    Fake. 9GAG app shouldn't even cost in the first place, and fyi this is just the cheap browser version like all Facebook HD+ mockups. Don't be fooled by the name either, it may be 9GAG now but take note that you can change it.

    obviously not if it requires 1 GB RAM.
    hell. why that app requires 1 GB RAM, when Rudy's was working perfectly fine with all the phones?

    Have you ever thought of the fake developer could've intentionally copied that from play store? Need I remind everyone about the Instagram 2013 April fools incident:

    http://www.windowscentral.com/april-...ows-phone-fake

    Obviously this app shows no effort at all to be official. This is an example of an app you could make in 10 minutes.

    Ok you could be correct. I have anyways tipped the WPCentral team about this. Let us get some official confirmation from them, I guess they will know best. Thanks for sharing your input.

    In addition I have sent 9GAG a tweet asking them for confirmation. Lets see if they reply back.

    even if it were official (which I doubt it is), it's just a custom browser opening the 9gag website. Horrible to use.

    Just a few days back we had a series of fake Google Inc apps on the store. If this one turns out fake too, Microsoft's review process sucks and they should indeed consider doing something about it.

    Oh, they have proven in the past that their review peocess sucks. Take apps like the hacked Subway Surfers that seem to appear regularly on the store, take the case were a bunch of popular apps (like Week View 8), the 1:1 flappy bird clones (that use the same images and the same name and dont forget the candy crush saga fiasko.

    Thread opened. Post updated with link from WPCentral. (the best source of WP news on the planet. )

    As others have pointed out, the official app looks like a lazy wrapper for the website. It may still be best to stick with Rudy's app.

    This what is awesome about WP.
    First wait for app to come on WP
    Then it need 1gb RAM
    And after that it cost you

    WP has everything what you need from from a great smartphone

    Waiting for apps
    No apps optimization
    Cost you even the average quality app which completely free on other OS
