Can’t log in

I appreciate that this app has an auto – reader mode. I hope the author adds the ability to display images and videos in that mood, as alien blue could do.

Unfortunately I have not been able to login. When trying to log in, I gave permission on the Reddit site, but the app gives an error because of 403 status is apparently returned.

One question: is the developers Server getting involved in seeing any user’s data, or is the permission only used for the app on the user’s device?

Great start, needs quite a bit of work to be my daily driver.

I really appreciate how much this app tries to stick to iOS interface guidelines. Here are my suggestions and gripes after using it for a few minutes:
1. Please follow text size specified in iOS. Default text size on the app seems large. On that point, be consistent with text size across the app. Settings font is much smaller than comments font.
2. Tapping on pictures and videos are an inconsistent experience. One brings up a picture right over the ui, the other does a slide from the animation from the bottom.
3. Clicking links on reddit to reddit should be handled natively, not bring up safari.

Simple, convenient, feature filled - a worthy purchase

I’ve been using monochrome for about 6 months now, and with every update it only seems to get better. The swipe gestures to close windows, the clean view of posts, the gorgeous dark mode, and gif - to - video conversion make this app one of my all time favorites! Monochrome has earned a place not only on my home screen, but on my dock! Thoroughly worth the 1.99 for the in-app upgrade!
