Best. Looking. Reddit. App. Period. Makes browsing and using Reddit a breeze and a real pleasure. Well done I purchased the Display pick just to support these fantastic devs

Update: Still BY FAR the best reddit app, I have no idea why it isn’t popular at all... makes reddit seem less reddit-y and more accessible to the masses. I’m all for it, I hate typical reddit apps they remind me of the website (which I can barely look at I find it so repulsive and horrible to use) but this app is different!

Great App. Threaded Messaging Please.


I love the app, still hasn't gotten the hype that's deserved for it. My only question is will you guys be coming out with threaded Messaging, like a proper chat section instead of the current dated email format. It just makes it very hard to share posts with other Reddit users. Other than that, great app. Will be recommending.

Will update for 5 stars once chat is updated.

My Preferred Way to Browse Reddit


I’ve been really enjoying Beam as a unified way to use Reddit in my iPad and iPhone.

It’s clear to read and I have not experienced the app crashing or running poorly. I like it!

My only frustration has been how easy it is to inadvertently swipe on a post and up or downvote it by mistake.
