This app's integration of Readability is an unfortunate setback for BaconReader users. Instead of being able to view a gif, video, or photo directly from the website it is on, BaconReader redirects users to a third party interface called Readability. This is a host site that is supposed to make a more user-friendly experience but ends up making things look much more complicated instead. Readability's website also fails to include any pictures, meaning that all pictures in the articles users attempt to read on BaconReader are now removed. As a result, BaconReader users are often forced to resort to the "Open in Safari" feature just to view a simple video, GIF, or view a picture. The Readability interface ultimately fails to deliver.
Upgrade it and you're golden
Every complaint I see in the reviews have to do with the ads. Upon upgrading, they all go away. I have been in alien blue user for years. I'm liking this one more and more, and I didn't deal with the ads for more than an hour. I also saw complaints about the readability of you. Simply turn it off if you don't want it. It's a button in the top right.
The perfect way to troll the planet
I love this app, it's the only way to get the truth about our way of life, or its all a bunch of crap and we'll never know anyways. Thank you Reddit for getting me through the worst job on the planet (credit card collections).
PS I know there are worse jobs out there, like cleaning out septic tanks and sewers ;-)
