Great app, but terrible new font
This is one of the few apps I love and use several times daily. I have this app since I started using Reddit, around a year ago. Reddit was a whole new experience for me, with the best content from the web, and discussions to go along with it. Since then, I have used the app for news on my favorite topics/interests, viewing fascinating and informative images/videos, and whatnot. The app itself is quite responsive and easy to use. Navigating is a breeze, and the layout is clean.
However, upon opening the app tonight, I noticed something was different with the text. It was only when I opened the App Store that I realized the font had been changed. With this update, the font has been changed from San Francisco (the default for iOS/macOS) to a new font. As people have pointed out in reviews, the new font severely impacts readability and affects the whole app in a negative way. The previous font was perfect, and I don't know why it had to be replaced with a new font that makes reading text much harder. Seriously. If anyone involved is reading this, please revert to the old, default font (San Francisco). Alternatively, you could provide the option to choose from different fonts in the app.
Remember, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
A bit clunkier than AlienBlue
I finally decided to make the switch to the new app. I'm slowly getting used to it and it has a lot of great features. That being said, it has frozen or crashed on me maybe 10 times in the two weeks I've had it. It just makes the experience seem unstable. My other complaint is that the feed will scroll to the top when backing out of a comments thread which is unfortunate. It's also missing a few of the great features in AlienBlue that I got used to - being able to collapse a comment thread without seeing the top parent comment and being able to swipe forward back into a comment thread that you just left accidentally. Overall I'll probably stick with this app though since the account handling is much better. (Also I have a request to allow you to see the message you are replying to as you type a reply. It seems ridiculous this has not been considered.)
After reading one thread in a subreddit, you've kind of read them all. It seems like it's mainly people in their 20's and early 30's, who sometimes pretend they're older to answer questions posed to an older audience. I fit into that age demographic, but I'm also a mother of teens, so I'm in a different stage of life than a lot of these people. I think most of the users are trying to gain karma, so they start formatting all of their responses to be like ones they've seen are successful. When almost everyone does this, everything sounds like it's been written by the same person, and it gets really, really dull. Variety adds spice to life. It doesn't feel like there are very many different types of "voices", because they're all taking on this persona that gets the up votes. For the first day or two it's fun, but then it kind of isn't.
The stories can be entertaining, and it's nice to kind of have kind of a Pinterest of topics and info, but that's about it.
