San Francisco, CA (PRUnderground) June 26th, 2015

Doublie, home of a popular iPhone app that allows users to remix images and create their own memes on the go, today announced that it has published on its site round-ups of the best memes covering this week’s pair of historic U.S. Supreme Court rulings in favor of same-sex marriage and Obamacare (also known as the Affordable Care Act). The company has also published round-ups of memes commenting on other current events.

Screenshot 2015-06-26 12.18.17.png“Memes are today’s graffiti writing on walls, except no laws are broken and viral messages can be spread faster than at any time in humanity’s history,” said Doublie CEO Shane Walker. “That becomes incredibly important when major social issues are being debated, and Doublie is proud to be on the forefront of that cutting-edge culture.”

“Meme Creators in Support of Gay Marriage” takes a look at the best pro-gay marriage memes, as well as reactions to Justice Antonin Scalia’s scathing dissent in Friday’s historic 5-4 ruling.

“Obamacare Challenges End: The Best Memes” is a rundown of the celebrations in response to the Supreme Court’s ruling, which effectively ended the legal challenges to the law, as well as the commentary that has swirled through the memesphere during the past several years.

“Jon Stewart Takes on Charleston Shooting: Memes Round-Up” opens with a look at the Daily Show host’s eloquent response to the tragedy in South Carolina before moving on to many of the best Stewart memes from his tenure on the show. Doublie expects to publish another round-up of Jon Stewart memes when he steps down in August.

“By the Numbers: Blatter Blasted 3:1 vs. Brady” is a statistical analysis of meme reactions to FIFA President Sepp Blatter’s recent resignation, compared to how meme creators responded to the news of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s four-game suspension at the start of the next NFL season. Unsurprisingly, Blatter was thrashed by Brady in a blowout loss. Doublie will check on both news stories as they continue to unfold.

“Trump For President: The Memes Make Themselves” examines the many amusing reactions to what was probably the strangest Presidential campaign kick-off speech ever. Trump will undoubtedly provide plenty of fodder for meme creators through next year, and Doublie plans to follow all the action.

“2016 Presidential Election: Best Memes So Far” takes a look at the early meme reactions to the marathon run to the November 2016 general election. It’s another subject that Doublie will be paying attention to in the months ahead.

Doublie leads the way in mobile remixing of social media while on the go. The company has raised $1.7 million from early investors in YouTube, Uber, Facebook, and Twitter.
