Some small corrections.
Ratings and Reviews
Enjoy this app until iPhone X, please update to the new screen format.
Everything still works, but not utilizing the bigger screen makes the whole experience worse.
nicely designed, could use some features
Nicely made app with a good UI and functional design. dark mode and comment prefetching (for the subway) would make this app fantastic. Would also appreciate the inclusion of “swipe right to go back” gesture.
needs swipe back gesture and true black mode
great but needs some basic additions. a true OLED black mode would be nice. a swipe back gesture in the command view is essential imo. the way to collapse comments isn’t clear or intuitive. other than that it’s a wonderful app.
