Lean and clean UI. Runs lightning fast even on modest hardware. Easy to navigate simple minimalist UI. Everything you need and nothing you don't. If you're looking for fluff and decorations, look elsewhere. If you want a free, fast and efficient app that stays out of your way, you will love it.

Fastest, most pleasant-to-use app on my phone. It works great with my slow mobile internet, caching posts and images beforehand, and even allows going back in time. There are no ads or tracking or anything bad other than Reddit itself, which is getting increasingly censored. Nitpicks: 1. Doesn't support many New Reddit features, which can lead to confusion with others. 2. The new feature to automatically reload comments with an old cached copy makes loading comments slower than before.

Great app but needs more search functionality. There's no way to search within a subreddit that you're viewing and the main search requires you to manually type in the full sub's name. Seems like a major oversight. Also it would be good to have a forward navigation button in the main menu. If you accidentally navigate there you can't go back to where you were.
