Excellent replacement for Alien Blue
As someone who browses Reddit from my iPhone about 95% of the time, a well designed client is very important to me. Alien Blue was previously the best iOS Reddit client on offer, but after no updates since the new official app has been released, it has become stale and full of bugs since the introduction of iOS 11.
At first glance, Readder does not appear to be all that different than any other Reddit client. However, the number one reason I like it so much is the level of customization available. You can configure swipe comment collapsing to work exactly like Alien Blue does, which the official Reddit app still does not do 100% correctly. Having good eyesight, I appreciate the ability to shrink font size down to make each page more information dense, so I don’t have to scroll as much. The “card” layout Reddit is pushing these days is ridiculous, especially on a larger plus sized iPhone. Such a waste of space.
I’ve only just begun to work through all of the features available, but first impressions are everything, and I was thoroughly impressed in this case.
Great client. I literally have every client available on my phone going back and forth noting features and trying to decide. On or two things of note is everytime I go back to the feed view and want to vote or even comment it asks me to sign in. That's getting annoying quick considering I paid to add the account. While I have no problem with that, it's a stopping point for me. I'm also having some issues with the swiping features not consistently working. That might not be anything but user error, but figuring the real cause is frustrating. Feature rich is the reason I have gladly paid for the use. Keep up fine tuning it devs. Thank you.
Developer Response ,
Thanks! Please report any issues you're seeing on /r/readder so we can get to the bottom of it.
I switched from Alien Blue
I've been using the discontinued Alien Blue app for a few years now and this is the closest app I can find to it. I've tried many reddit apps (even the official one) and I haven't liked any of them. I even tried Apollo. Readder is the app for me! I like that the dev is active with the users and adds many improvements over time.
One thing I wish Readder had that Alien Blue has is that if you force kill the app, it will load up the app from the last place you left off. I would really like that feature in Readder.
