Ads are intrusive on the front page. Comments don't sort and frequently repeat. The upvote/downvote and link buttons have been moved from the bottom (super convenient) to the top of the screen (makes pressing them much less convenient). This used to be my most used app but these changes are a step backwards. The UI is prettier, that's the only good from this update. Edit: they've fixed all of my issues above, it's great now!
App works great; feels compact and is visually nice, esp with the dark mode. Would be better if you could click on a sub and subscribe while within, instead of going back to menu and choosing "Manage Subreddit". Otherwise Bacon Reader has been great. Would recommend. EDIT: LoL I knew someone would come along and tell me I haven't been looking hard enough. So, for fellow Baconer who didn't know, click Menu while within the subreddit and click View Sidebar. Thanks for the info, OneLouder Apps!
The interface is well thought out. It does take some exploration to figure some things out, and I am sure there are things I haven't learned yet. I tried to like the official Reddit app, but I gave up. Bacon is MUCH better.
My original issue is fixed, but now it runs out of memory and crashes every few minutes. I've had to reinstall in the past because of other technical issues, so I think it's time I just tried a different app.
I can't even use reddit on my computer anymore. Also the support is crazy. Onelouderchic or however you spell her name will answer questions before you can even submit them! Totally worth the price to get rid of adds. Support devs who support you back. Haven't changed reddit apps since I found this years ago
go to app for reddit. while minor amount of gif/gifv cant be played, it can be open into external link! definitely handled it better than reddit official app
