Wow what a great app.. I am a refugee from RiF and really like this already. Sure it's not the same, and certain settings need to be enabled (video controls and disabling tap to close were first to adjust), but the app styling is great! Hopefully Reddit doesn't nuke it. Edit - Honestly, I like this better than RiF. It's faster.. Just can't use NSFW subs, but I just use the official app for that and immediately close it because it's not very good!!

I love you. Seriously. I'd rather eat a bowl of live cockroaches with sour cream than use the official Reddit app, and while FF mobile made Reddit bearable, I had to keep zooming in because some page elements like the arrows were positively tiny, plus I couldn't readily tell which links were videos (I skip videos unless they look really interesting). Red Reader is *beautiful* and I actually came back, looking for a "pro" version so I could support the project.

It's not perfect, but it's miles better than the hot garbage the official app is. RedReader let's me see posts from all the subs I'm subscribed to instead of just the ones the algorithm wants me to see, an no suggested subs. Still fiddling with the customization and the interface will take some getting used to, but so far so good. I'll never forget you Reddit Is Fun.
