I downloaded this app after the most recent update to the official Reddit app and have been overall pleased. After tweaking the settings a bit this app exceeded the expectations I had going in. The only issues I have is that gifs don't autoplay while scrolling through and you can't browse posts by swiping left to right.
I used the official reddit app for quite some time, and switched over because the official reddit app was slow, and crashed or froze about once every 2 hours. I had heard good things about did, and it turns out they're true. The app is very fast, and the interface is clean (it could be better, in particular it could take better advantage of touch motions, but the current one gets the job done).
Super easy to use, had an iphone for a bit and it sucked because i couldnt have this app for reddit. Definitely one of my favorite time wasting apps haha. Edit: Still loving the app in 2018, actually the only app I've ever reviewed. Great interface and just enough customization to browse Reddit your way.
A couple bugs really bother me. 1) Superscript doesn't format properly when you comment. Using multiple carets across a sentence causes jumbled and inconsistent levels of superscript. ^^This ^^sentence ^^does ^^not ^^appear ^^as ^^one ^^line ^^two ^^levels ^^up, ^^but ^^is ^^instead ^^a ^^terrible ^^mess. This is not a problem on the mobile site; it only occurs on the two reddit apps on the market. 2) When trying to select for new, or top posts from today, I'm inundated with dozens of posts from days or weeks ago. This didn't use to be a problem, so either Reddit changed some algorithm, or this app is having a very frustrating glitch.
I lowered my review from 5 stars to 2. With a lot of users using the i.redd.it domain for content, it's become increasingly difficult to view this content when 90% of the time this app won't load it. Really frustrating.
Unable to open certain image hosting sites, such as the official reddit gifv host. When I tried to submit an issue on r/redditisfun the moderator removed my post twice. In the PM conversation that followed the moderator called me a liar, "retarded", and banned me from the subreddit. Dont waste your time with this app. The official app is much better.
