Intuitive and active My favorite reddit client by far. It just keeps getting updated with better and better features! The navigation is familiar in some aspects to other apps, however features like subreddit navigation and media browsing are where this app really shines!
Edit for accuracy: I'm using dark theme and full size cards for reference. This was a fantastic app until where/how the subreddit for each card was moved. With the old setup, they are in the same corner and stand out. In the new setup, they blend in and are tagged @ the end of the title, making their position extremely random. Giving them a fixed position / making them stand out makes this 5 stars. It's probably not an issue for most people but makes it unusable for me.
Love the look. Love the layout and functionality and the menu layout. Yay for a good dark theme. Only downside is pics are sometimes really slow to open and a majority of the time gifs won't play/only play a second or 2 with internal browser. Usually have to go to external browser, which is kind of annoying extra 2 steps.
Well, I've been using this app for a while now. It's probably been my favorite Reddit app so far. One issue: it seems with the latest update, whenever I press my Home button, and reopen the app, it reloads my front page. Meaning, if I was on another subreddit, in the comments far deep in a post, and I press the Home button, I have to navigate all the way back there, as opposed to it simply staying where it was at. There is a front page button, it is easy to get to. There is not button shortcut to get me back to where I was reading. This is especially frustrating being at work, and only having 30 seconds to check my phone, if I had just sent a text for example.
Flashing ads I hate the new design, it's really hard to see which subreddit the post is from. There is also no option to remove flashing ads. Frequently many of the ads flash and I can't x them out, the flashing gives me a headache and makes me mildly nauseous. The flashing ads are always very high contrast like white to black or very neon colors too like bright pink and they flash very fast. I don't mind ads but we should be given an option to remove any ads we find offensive like most other ads on other apps.
Slight adjustment I've been using Reddit Now for about 2 years now, and I believe it's the best Reddit client. However I have noticed a very annoying issue regarding the overall performance. I feel like every time the app loads a picture into one of the cards, the scrolling stutters. When all the pictures are loaded its very smooth. So I suggest an aggressive loading option in behavior so people who have plenty of data can enjoy a smoother experience. I'm running a Nexus 6p on 6.01 btw.
