It's definitely my go-to reddit reader. Some of the features are a little tricky to learn, but the devs seem to be on top of adding features and fixing bugs. My biggest complaints are that you basically lose your place in a thread if you change posts, and there isn't a way to show parent comments, but it works well as a touch interface (waaaay better than the official mobile site), loads most links in-app without incident, and crashes very sparingly even on my crummy 1st gen Moto G.
Have tried other reddit apps, including the official one but none can beat BaconReader in terms of functionality, responsivity and layout. The only thing that bothers me is that sometimes, for no apparent reason, GIFs just won't show. This persists for days and I'm met with an error with no explanation. If there is a bug that hinders normal use of the app, I'd like to know about it and that the developer is working on a fix. A little pop-up with something like "Gfyat links not working. Working on a fix." when I start the app would be sufficient. Other than that, love the app!
Best Reddit mobile app hands down. Been using this for years and I don't see myself switching to anything else for a long time to come
Long this app. Wish there was an offline mode to cache postings for reading before hopping on a flight. I need something to read vs watching crappy in flight entertainment.
I have tried literally all the Reddit client apps and BaconReader is by far my favorite! So worth investing in premium - the continous development, support and updates are worth it alone; nevermind the fact that this is one of the best reddit clients on the app store!
What's up with this new box? Every post has a fixed size box on it. Text goes beyond, it can't be read. Links are now weirdly expanded in the center of the box
What's New in 5.2.1:
- Better handling of SSL errors with option to not display warning
- Fixed Twitter videos
- Several crash fixes on image saving
- Support for amp.reddit.com links
- Misc bug fixes
