So much customization!
Coming from iAlien (which I was very happy with) was kinda weird. The menu bar being on the right than the left was hard to get used to also. BUT as time went on the app gained more traction and more customization options kept being added. Things like what happens to a video or post when force touching (for force touch compatible devices) or what icon you prefer to use. Dark and light mode with a single tap! No going through settings to change the mode when viewing at night or day. The font you read can be changed. Literally almost everything can be changed to your liking. You can even hide certain menu options that you find yourself never using at all. Hopefully one day they add an option to switch the menu tab from the right to left lol.
Recently a new tab was added called recently viewed and my goodness I did not know how much I actually would use that tab. I always find posts I find interesting but forget to save it and wouldn’t be able to find it later. Now I just go to that tab and it’s there! It’s super useful.
Inconsiderate icon design
The devs mentioned that a lot of people complain about the icon, but that they have no intention on changing it.
It's weird right. You don't see such complaints on other Reddit apps. But the devs are perfectly fine to tell you to go elsewhere if you are unhappy. Wouldn't it be polite to respect the user a bit.... Maybe not use a color scheme and art direction that clashes with every color scheme and wall paper you could pick? Many different people want a solid Reddit app. To go "well we like the design so we won't change it"... Isn't that an indicator of a developer who doesn't care? Any time this app is brought up, the design of it, the mascot eating bacon... The devs have no respect for the breadth of content that can be consumed on Reddit and how cohesive a dolphin eating bacon and a vegetarian subreddit might mesh. Or maybe adults who look at philosophy subreddit who are looking for a more serious experience. It's just a selfish decision, and I hope developers star really caring about what the people want.
Edit: and the fact that you can customize the app icon means nothing. This creepy cartoon is still everywhere in the interface.
Great App, but has recent freezing issues
This app came through clutch once I had to let go of Alien Blue. It took some getting used to since I used Blue for sooo long, but once I got the hang of the format I quickly learned to love it.
The ease of organizing your most frequented subreddits is probably my favorite feature. Also the search feature is great! Commenting is easy along with upvoting and downvoting.
Recently I’ve run into issues with a freezing bug. It has only gotten worse every day for the last week. The app will just randomly freeze when scrolling forcing me to close the app and wait a second before opening it up again. I’m sure this bug will be fixed, but it’s gotten to the point where the app is almost unusable. Please fix it so I can go back to loving this app!
