I’ve tried 2 other similar apps. One I could not get working - was very complex. The other had a horrible interface but kind of worked. I even paid extra for more features only to be bombarded with notifications I didn’t want. I found this one and within an hour deleted the others. Super easy to use and sends you only the notifications you set up. Works perfectly and has helped immensely. Love it.

This is it.

If you need custom alerts for Reddit posts, this is the app you’re looking for. It’s free with no monetization aspects at all—the developer said he is funding it himself (as of mid 2020). Clean UI is a bonus, and the option to select your preferred Reddit client for opening links is the cherry on top. I hope the developer opens this app up for donations before trying to monetize anything, but as of the time of this review this is the best option for this type of app, by a large margin.

Sporadic success

When it works, it’s fantastic! Very helpful. But it works for me about a quarter of the time. I have tried deleting the app and re-downloading it multiple times.. Making sure notifications are enabled.. Making sure I have the correct text on my Monitors... Everything. Alas, it only sends me notifications maybe one out of four times. I usually end up going to this particular subreddit maybe ten times throughout the day and I always see multiple posts that I never got notified of. This app would be 5/5 for me if that didn’t happen.
