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.
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.
Really great app. I use it enough to warrant upgrading to the paid version which I did. Only two problems I see: sometimes gfycat links take forever to load or just don't and v.reddit does not play sound. Both pretty minor as I can just open in browser.
Edit 2: no signs of hope, ads still reappear. Doesn't need to be like this :(. Edit: Yet again, after this recent update, ads appear again. Still without fail, every time this app updates, ads reappear. I paid ages ago to remove them, and for the longest time it worked fine. Restarting the phone sometimes works, and then sometimes it doesn't. There's no option to "restore purchases" either.
Landscape at last! As we all know the official Reddit app is tablet unfriendly, no landscape mode! So far no complaints. A few issues, but not Bacon fault, me learning the app functions. :-) Icing on the cake would be to incorporate the graphics that individual subreddits use for there layouts...if that is possible?
