Other Comments: 

I followed this app from beta when it was a web-based application up to now. I jumped on it when I first heard about it from a post on the AppleVis Forum.

I will stress one thing. It will work differently with different social media platforms. I know that with Twitter you can upload the meme directly from the app to Braigo. I only have experience with Facebook. Here's how to be able to upload memes & photos from Facebook.

1. You can take a screenshot if you have another iOS. device & upload the photo.

2. If you're like me & only have 1 iOS. device, you can swipe until you get to the photo & click on it within the Facebook app.
Then double tap & hold until you hear an tone & VO. will say `Alert save photo.`
You may have other options, but swipe until you hear save. Once you've selected that, wait a few seconds for the photo to download then close it with a 1 finger swipe down & upload it.
