Common Sense Media says

Large collection of interesting facts and tasteless humor.





What parents need to know

Ease of play

The app controls are very intuitive, and have a few options for joke navigation. Within each category, jokes can be scrolled through one by one, ahead 10 or back 10, or randomly. There is no search capability.

Several of the joke categories use name-calling words such as "stupid" and most categories of jokes are generally insulting to at least one group of people.


After playing with the app once or twice, subsequent usage has revolving ads near the bottom of the screen. Tapping on an ad brings up a screen with more information, or takes users to the iTunes store.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking

One of the joke categories is "Bar Jokes," where many of the jokes refer to drinking.

Is it any good?


1500+ JOKES! (Free) contains a wide variety of content, from the tame (Riddles) to the interesting (Wild Facts) to the funny (One-Liners) to the insulting (Insults). The functionality of the app is well-done, but the constant ads at the bottom might cause the user to tap them accidentally. While some of the content is interesting or generally funny, there are plenty more jokes that are offensive to groups of people (e.g., people with blond hair, the mentally ill, and a variety of others). Also, in addition to the obvious Insults category, some of the other categories have insulting and tame jokes mixed together.

NOT FOR KIDS! Beware parents! Kids can go to "Bar Jokes," which refer to drinking and smoking. They can go to anywhere they want, and have no history where you can see what they viewed. They will start saying it to you and it will drive you crazy! Don't do it!

1500+ Jokes

Ok. All of the jokes are so funny, but some are mean. This is for kids. I think the company of 1500+ Jokes should add "Knock Knock". They're funny too.

I love jokes!

I do really like jokes, but the Yo Mama jokes are a little insulting to some of my friends. A Yo Mama joke is like this: Yo mama so fat, when she gets in the water, her splash attacks do damage! ____ _____________________________ ________________________________ Insult Cause Effect A joke like this: Why did the chicken cross the road? It had to go to the other side! _______________________________________ _______________________________ Question Answer Some people prefer to do this: Q: Why did the chicken cross the road? A: It had to go to the other side!
