Imgur is similar to the other apps on this list as it also allows you to explore great content on the web, such as images, gifs, and memes. You are also able to comment on the content and you can either upvote or downvote as you see fit.
You can even send content to friends and family right on the app itself, so you do not need to download the content and then send it via a different platform. You can also follow users on the platform and get notifications as to when they upload new material for your enjoyment.
One major difference though between this and other similar apps is its layout. It has a layout that more closely resembles Pinterest, with the images and materials, showing in a tiled format rather than one above the other for to scroll down through.
In a way, this is a nifty alternative as you are able to see and peruse through what is on offer more quickly, but then to see the image in full size you need to click on it and then you will be taken to an enlarged version where the voting and comment section can be found.
Amino is like a combination of Reddit and Imgur as it marries content with community and social app chats. The app enables you to explore a diverse range of things that are sectioned into definitive categories and there is certainly something for everyone.
