I love having an android phone again, specifically the Note 8. That being said this app is totally lacking. The Apple version is so much more user friendly. This takes a step back for me. I'm a heavy redditor, I miss the ease of use of the Apple version. Tis my only complaint.
I understand you need to show ads. That's fine. It's just if I close an ad which is at the bottom of the screen, a new one will pop up after less than a minute, even if I haven't changed thread. Update: well over a year later, and this has still not been fixed which is a real pity as it is a great app other than this persistent annoyance
Oh goodness bacon reader, why design an app like this and have my spot lost when I switch to check another app? I'll be reading an interesting post and switch to my internet to do something and come back to my home page. This is as terrible as IG doing that. Would have 4 5 stars if not for this horrendous feature.
Used to be good, but now other apps are much better and streamlined. Crashes often while loading articles even after clearing cache etc. Ads pop up occasionally even after paying for pro. Do yourself a favour and get a better app. I recommend sync pro for the UI and customization.
Poor support and plagued with issues. Constantly have ads reappear even after purchasing the pro version. Developers are slow to respond to issues. Pictures from imgur fail to load often. Gifs don't even work in the app currently. Reddit video links have no sound. Tons of better more functional options out there.
You can't collapse comments individually and users have been asking for this for at least 6-years. So obviously customer support is lacking. Also, the app overall is fairly clunky. No swipe features to make voting easier. What I do like is you can swipe from story to story. Overall, without being able to collapse comments - this app is not for me.
