Used to be one of the best reddit apps out there with support for multiple image and video host built in. Now the app is completely infested with ads. I don't mind an ad here and there but when an ad occupies 25% of the screen while reading a thread it's just unacceptable. Going to uninstall it and go back to the official reddit app.
I think Sync is a great reddit app. For a long time I used it but had switched to a different app for awhile. Honestly though I always felt like something was missing with the other app. So here I am back to Sync... Its like being back home. Its comfortable, nice, relaxing.... I gotta say it feels good to in sync again with such a great app. 😉
Edit: Three years later and the only comment edit I can make is that my comparison of this to Alien Blue is an insult to Sync. Everyone has their preferences but for me Sync is hands down The Best Reddit app out there. I don't know why I had to discover this app myself. I like it better than baconreader, better than reddit news, it is right up there with AlienBlue maybe even better. Of all the issues I've had with other Android reddit apps, Sync had none of them. ONE request though: the option of not saving the browsing history. It's the only thing I miss from other reddit apps. Fantastic app.
It took me a while to post a review due to a few little things that I wasn't sure about. Since then I've moved past them, and see this app for what it is: the king of reddit apps. As soon as I am able to afford it, I will be purchasing the pro version.
This would be the perfect reddit app if it weren't missing a couple key features. One, there is no feature to save drafts as far as I know. Two, I can't report a comment for a specific purpose or "other". As a mod, I can't view the reason for reported threads and comments. These don't seem important at a glance, but when the need arises, not having them is terribly inconvenient.
Lately there has been an increase in Google Play Ads that pop up for no reason. Show me as many ads as you wish in the app, but when you automatically redirect me to the play store without me clicking an ad, that is unacceptable.
- When using the internal browser, you can now swipe back to the previous activity along the Toolbar
- Added the same comment formatting options to selftext submission
- Added a button at the end of the formatting options to configure the visible buttons
- Added an option to delimit scores with a bullet point (in the comment description)
- Fixed a bug caused by ads
