This app was great around a year ago. But each update has made it more and more unstable since then. Now, I'm almost unable to use it, since I get a "Connection closed by Peer" error 80% of the time I try opening posts, even on Wi-Fi. This is not related to my internet, since all other apps are running fine.
Paid the 1.99 to get rid of apps and upgrade to premium. It charged me and the transaction went through. I don't have adds but I also don't have premium. The app is pretty great. Saving posts to read later is a bit clunky. I used to have a lot of problems with the app crashing but the regular updates have resolved most of it.
Having the app open even in the background causes other apps that produce sound to constant dim the audio. Youtube, spotify, doesn't matter. The sound keeps going in and out. Closing bacon reader solves the dimming in and out audio issue. Needs a fix asap.
This once fantastic app has gotten noticeably worse with every update. First it was the intrusive ads. Then it was the autoplaying intrusive ads. Then it was the autoplaying intrusive ads causing audio dips on OTHER APPS while open in the background. With the most recent update, random crashes occur 50% of the time the app is simply open, instead of the usual expected crash when opening a link inside of it. I used to think this was one of the best android apps, but the commercialization of it, and reddit itself ironically, is making me search for alternatives.
Since the changes to picture downloading, the app has been producing gallery folders that don't work with Windows computers. I attempted to report this error on the official subreddit and was met with negative response and disregarded by the developers.
Alot has been fixed. This app is getting better. One complaint is that whenever I scroll past an ad it makes my phone vibrate ever so slightly but enough to notice. It's like a quick jolt. This is not only annoying but if I am connected via Bluetooth or headset it causes the music to lag or turn off. Please fix.
