Ads get shoved down your throat I'm going to be looking for an old version that won't update or at the very least chucking this app in the trash and moving elsewhere. I need adblock for freaking reddit. Of all things.
Won't load half the time Just says loading at the top no matter what. All other internet things on my phone work. Since update I have only been able to get into the app to browse twice....
I was happy with the ads in the older version but putting ads in the feed is going too far Large text is the default and probably the best in this app(I preferred two notches less in the older app) so comments are always bold. I used bacon reader because I wanted more information on my screen but this reduced density makes this all look like any other app in the pay store.
Where is the option to hide all child comments? After the update every comment is visible. Collapse all in options won't work by default, needs to be clicked in detailed view. Please fix. Also, changing sorting methods for comments requires manual refresh to use the new selection
Ads? Meh! I have adblock installed so I don't see any of the dreaded ads... What I get instead is huge gaps everywhere, I think I'll follow the herd and uninstall and move onto another app... Slide for Reddit seems pretty good so far, and best of all... No ads!
The Update!!! The latest iteration of this app is such a huge step forward. The GUI is super intuitive and the app never crashes. This is hands down the best reddit app out! Hats off to the baconreader team.
