Easy to use, streamlined, and intuitive. I have been using it for 3-4 years with consistent results. There's only one issue I have - when people post oversized multiple images, you can't hit next from within the expanded image, only the smaller version (which cuts off some texts in a screenshot). It's easily fixed by opening images in a browser instead. Literally my only complaint. It's very versatile and customizable. This is how to make an app.

It took a little while for me to get used to the slightly different presentation, coming from the official Reddit app, but it's vastly superior once I got acclimated. The official app didn't have the same options for customization, and tended to slow down a lot. RIF has none of those issues. It's smooth, let's me get rid of annoying garbage on my feed, and I haven't had any technical issues.

Definitely better that the original app, but it still has a few issues. For one, you have to open up a video post to play it and it cannot autoplay. Galleries are also much worse than just scrolling left to right through them, and they have ads between images. However, a lot of features are added, such as filtering posts by title, subreddit, or more. There are also a lot more settings you can change to fit what you want.
