Edit: Rating it 1* now. The crashes continue. The app is basically useless. Time to go look for a new app, one that works. I love BaconReader and have been using it for many years now, but the past month nor so.. The app has stated to crash. A whole lot. Tap a link. Crash. Tap a hyperlink. Crash. Open the linked article. Crash. It's getting irritating at this point.
I've owned the paid version of Baconreader for awhile now. It's worth the small amount paid to not have ads and supporting the developers. If you ever see a Reddit thread talking about best mobile apps Baconreader always makes an appearance if not the top suggested. Great app.
Have to drop the rating to 4 stars for the time being, however, as v.redd.it files play the video but don't actually play any sound in app. Not sure if this is just something I'm doing wrong, but it's frustrating to need to open the browser or a separate app to hear sound on these media files. Other than that, BaconReader has been my go to for reddit and it provides a very simple, efficient experience. Keep up the good stuff! Hoping to see a fix for those v.redd.it files.
Best Reddit app on the store currently. Just wish imgur and Reddit would quit sabotaging loading times for those of us who don't use the official apps. Imgur makes the image low res on mobile unless viewed in the official app, and v/i.redd.it links take a while to load unless you use the official Reddit app.
I've dropped my 5 star rating to a 3 star one, because when I click on posts, the title is no longer visible. Makes it especially difficult to know what the post is meant to be if you can only view the title outside of the comments link.
Edit: I can admit when I'm an idiot. This is a great app. Previously mentioned issue was me being stupid. Mystery up and down votes on the associated account with this app.
