The BEST reddit App


I don’t usually write reviews unless the app is god awful - in which case I warn people, but this app is absolutely incredible. Not only is it free, the UI and buttons are laid out incredibly well, you can have multiple accounts to switch between, messages and comments are easy to respond to, and best of all the developer is very responsive. I submitted a bug about some issues I had and they replied back with a temporary work around as well fixing the EXACT bug in the next update. If you want a free reddit app, this is the one.

Still my favorite iOS Reddit app


Recent update was much appreciated! It's not as pretty as a lot of the other Reddit apps are, but I think it's super high on usability and user interface functionality.

The one thing I'd ask for is to letting an image of videos width determine the height. There are so many skinny pictures I have to click on the post and then click on the picture just to see it whereas if it displayed it wider (thus pushing comments down a little) it would improve it visually.

Why do you have to change things when the app is working perfectly? Gfycat, v.reddit, Imgur gifs... Any video format suddenly has a 50% chance of refusing to play within the native application window (not the built-in browser). This has only begun to happen with the most recent update for me. I am not pleased and did away with the Bacon Reader for the foreseeable future, which is a disappointing measure to have to take after five years of being a loyal user. Please fix this, as half of Reddit being unviewable is unacceptable
