Five star Reddit client with one caveat.

As of the time of me writing this review, the app doesn't allow me to post comments, stating only that an error has occurred and nothing much beyond that. This is, in my opinion, the best Reddit client available right now and has so much amazing functionality. However, not being able to post comments (as I've been able to do before recent updates) has been killing me. I've tried across multiple subreddits in case some subs prohibit comments based on user frequency or karma etc and it just doesn't work.

It's still not enough for me to rate below five stars, despite this glaring issue. It could also be due to NAT issues which don't fault the app at all. Have not tested that yet.

Tldr; freaking fantastic Reddit client. Hoping my comment issue is an isolated one.

What’s with the new full-screen ads?

I’ve been using BaconReader for 3+ years as my main Reddit app. I use this app more than just about any other app on my phone. As long as I’ve been using the app, there've been ad banners at the bottom of the screen. The only ads have been these banner ads. I can ignore those ads, so I’m fine with them.

However, in the past day — that is, since the most recent update — I’ve had 4 or 5 full-screen pop-up ads appear out of nowhere, and I’ve had to wait several seconds to close them. This completely takes me out of my Reddit browsing experience. Don’t get me wrong, I love this app, but I’d give it 5 stars if the developers removed the full-screen ads.

Developer Response ,

We have always had interstitial ads. For years. The issue is that the former ad mediator we've been using since the launch of the app went out of business, requiring us to switch to a new one. The new aggregator is filling the interstitial at a much higher rate (though the frequency isn't actually any higher - you just see it more because it's actually filling). Because of this, we reached out and asked them to please reduce the frequency way, way down. It should be significantly better now.

Completely broken on iPad

I’ve been using this app for years on my galaxy phone with no issues. I’ve been using it for maybe a year on iPad and it’s been a reasonable app with a few shortcomings. There have alway been problems dealing with comment permalinks. Specifically, the app has no way to let you copy them. This can very annoying but not the end of the world.

But the permalink problem is now much worse. Clicking a comment reply in the inbox should take you to the post and parent comment so you can read it in context. Instead I get taken to the post but just get a “no comments” message and have to “display full post” to try to hunt down the comment.

I’m not sure if this is just me or not but this is driving me to consider alternatives on iPad.
