The best out there in my opinion, but it could definitely be improved, especially for those who moderate. My biggest gripe is the auto refresh feature that can't be turned off in modmail. It's really frustrating trying to go through modmail when you have an almost constant auto refresh happening! Just let us refresh the list ourselves! Please remove the modmail auto refresh, please! This app could also take some design cues from the Relay Reddit app and make comments color-coded for easier reading and better navigation between threads.

IMO, the best way to browse Reddit on mobile. It has ads, but they're unobtrusive in line with normal content, and you don't even notice them. The comment drafting feature is fantastic for saving something to post later when you can finish it. I took off a star because there are some very long standing bugs that seem to have never been patched, like images not displaying unless you open a menu or something else. Annoying to say the least. Other than that, I wouldn't use anything else.

Feature and usability wise this is the best Reddit app, but the last month or 2 I've been having tons of issues with posts/images/videos taking forever to load. Also, quite often when I open a post w/comment section the comments won't load until I refresh. Definitely not my internet as it happens on my gigabit connection, and I don't have any issues with any other apps. I just dealt with it for awhile, but it's been happening for a long time now and I think I'm going to end up switching apps.
