Functional. Some rough edges.
I don't OD on reddit very often, so from the perspective of someone just wanting to access a few specific subreddits from time to time, I think this application is a little rough around the edges.
The application implements its own little stylized popups for reddit login and such. And the rounded edges are literally rough with white pixels. The buttons are all along the top of the dialog, which was odd.
The application does seem a bit slow, and uses the now-famous dark linen background in places where it doesn't scroll around properly. The buttons along the top of the item you're viewing are all solid black, looking too dark on the rest of the UI. The "Link" button (with sharing options and open-in-new-window stuff) doesn't have an entry for "open in browser", but it is in the menus.
I feel like it's a bit haphazard. Completely functional, but not yet a homerun for the perfectionist :)
Wait for Alien Blue
App is really slow. Mind you, I have a pretty fast machine, so it's not hardware related. Every mouse click seems to result in a swirling beachball. I am not impressed by the layout and overall GUI direction of this app. The button to view comments is hidden until you hover over it. What's the point of hiding it in the first place? Comments themselves are rendered exactly as they would appear on the website--ugly. I could live with the GUI shortcomings but the overall unresponsiveness of the app is too much.
Can't wait for Alien Blue to be released for the Mac. I have it on both the iPad and iPhone. Now that's how it should be done.
It could use some work
Ive been using the Alien Blue app on my iphone for quite some time and decited to get one on my MacBook. Since this is the only one out so far i gave it a shot. It an alright application, but it doesn't quite compare to going to the actual site, its generally slow and a little bit disorganized and the icon is a little bit awkward on my dock. But it has potential so I'll continue to use it in hopes that a future update will fix these minor issues. Go narwhales!
