Customer Reviews

Responsive to feedback/best overall layout and feel

Basically as the title says. I’m here because BaconReader bugged me to rate it, but honestly I’ve now downloaded the free version of this app over the life of 3 phones and 2 tablets so maybe a review is the least I can do...

I’ve tried (and really wanted to like) the reddit sponsored app along with various other reddit 3rd party apps but always felt myself liking the baconreader layout best. I’ve run into maybe 3 or 4 instances where the software was buggy but was always patched pretty quickly. The devs post on r/baconreader and actually respond if you tell them about a bug.

A step back, then forward

The latest update crashes constantly - loading images, reading comments, you name it. I’m restarting every fifteen minutes or so now. If this isn’t fixed soon, I’ll be moving on to a different app.

Edit: Developers are very responsive getting things back on track. Good work, guys. Seems much better now.

The best alternative to Alien Blue

Its official I'm switching to BaconReader! After support for Alien Blue had stopped the app started feeling its age then I try this app many years later (late 2017) and by far this is the best Reddit app. I have zero complaints as this is how Alien Blue should have been.

Believe me I tried all the so called Reddit apps none hold a candle to this one. Nice job devs!
