Reddit App Reviews


Reddit App Description & Overview

What is reddit app? Welcome to Reddit, the heart of the internet.

Reddit is a social network with something for everyone: trending topics, diverse discussions, and engaging communities and comment threads.

Redditors have authentic and interesting conversations around all sorts of curated content. You’ll find gaming communities, bloggers, meme-makers, fandoms, travel enthusiasts, support groups, AI forums, news junkies, artists, and creators of all types.

Reddit has over 100,000 online communities (forums where members post and comment) dedicated to specific topics. Some of the most popular communities are:
• r/AskReddit, where users can ask and answer questions
• r/funny, which is full of humorous content
• r/science, for scientific discussions and news
• r/gifs, with funny animated gifs for your viewing pleasure

On Reddit you’ll find:
• Thousands of community groups
Breaking news, social media trends, sports highlights, TV fan theories, open AI discussions and personalized content, there's a community for everyone.

• Loads of laughs
Find memes, oddly satisfying videos, funny cat videos, and more to help you lose track of time.

• AMAs, or "Ask Me Anything"
Celebrities, politicians, and experts answer questions from users.

• The best discussions on any topic
Reddit’s discussion threads are where community members jump in with humor and insights for just about anything; pop culture, sports, entertainment, or financial advice.

• Get answers to anonymous questions
Ask communities anything you want. Ask questions on relationships, mental health, parenting, career help, fitness plans, and more.

• Anonymous profiles so you can do YOU
Connect with people about any topic, join interactive community groups or threads, and chat with other redditors, all anonymously.

Voting and Karma:

Instead of likes and hearts, Reddit’s social network runs on upvotes or downvotes. Voting on posts and comments increase or decrease the creator’s karma, and helps popular and relevant posts rise to the top, while filtering out low-quality or irrelevant posts.

While karma doesn't directly impact your ability to use Reddit, more karma can increase posts’ visibility and help you get noticed. Some communities require karma to post or comment, which helps prevent spam or low-quality content.

Reddit Premium:

Purchase Reddit Premium to enjoy an ads-free experience and access to premium avatar gear, r/lounge, custom app icons, and more.

Payment will be charged on a recurring monthly or annual basis to your Apple account. Your monthly or annual Premium subscription will automatically renew unless you cancel at least 24 hours before your subscription ends. Cancel anytime in your device’s Account Settings. No partial refunds.

Please let me remove the scroll button!. Overall the app is quite good. Very fluid, easy to navigate to my favorite subreddits quickly; basically does everything I’d expect from a Reddit client. HOWEVER, there is one feature that drives me absolutely batty. The scroll button. You know the one. The one where you accidentally click it and it sends you to the bottom of the thread you’re currently reading. There is already a perfectly good feature for this: pressing and holding on the screen collapses the current top-level comment and all child comments. I have had this app since the day it came out and have never, not once, pressed that button on purpose. Most of the time I just stick it in the top right corner and it stays out of the way, where it still creates a minor visual annoyance, but if that was all that happened I would not be writing this review. No, not only can I not get rid of it, it won’t even stay where I put it. Every so often, the button will jump back to its default location, and will not let me move it above that height on the screen. It’s annoying, it’s USELESS, because as I said there is already a feature that accomplishes the same thing, and I can’t remove it. Absolutely horrible feature. Please remove it from the app or at the very least give me an option to remove it. As it stands this app is two stars. Remove this infernal button and it will be five.

reddit still requires work in a lot of areas. I downloaded reddit for the pure enjoyment of having some place to post and interact with different communities. However, I noticed when receiving a follower you don’t have the option of “knowing” who follows you but you get a notification saying that person followed you. It’s annoying not being able to see who interacts with your posts from time to time or who follows you. Another thing is inbox messages you can’t delete them from your reddit inbox meaning they’ll stay there until you delete your account completely. Wish that wasn’t the case but sadly that’s how reddit is, the app isn’t really successful in managing followers like you can easily remove them on instagram or check who’s following you. Spam bots follow but you can’t get them to unfollow you which is ridiculous. Although I love reddit and the platform because you can post anonymously on reddit posts. I wish they’d focus on the important things of the app, like managing inbox messages and managing your followers or remove followers from your profile without deleting your account.

“View site in app” doesn’t work. Reddit is by far one of the best and most useful sites in the web. Whenever I’m searching for an answer to a hard-to-word question, including “reddit” in the search terms always reveals a ton of better answers than the ads & lists which make up most google results. The Reddit app is a different case altogether. Whenever I try the above approach on my phone, the site promises “this page looks better in the app.” Even with it already installed, these links just go to the App Store, rather than opening that page in the Reddit app. This just makes the whole thing feel useless - searching Reddit directly isn’t particularly accurate, so I end up just trying to ignore the button and view the results in the browser. The issue isn’t so much with the app as with those links. They’re essentially just one big redirect to the App Store, rather than something useful which automatically opens that page in the Reddit app (and only goes to the store if the app is not installed). This may seem like a little thing, but it also seems like an easy fix, and the fact that I run into this almost every day makes all of those little irritations really add up.

Useless updates and unintuitive AI. Wow! This app was great a few years ago; always my go-to! It was easy to navigate and preferred it over the desktop version. But ever since they changed the video player, it’s been going downhill. The community has been vocal about the bad updates and begged to go back, but the developers basically told everyone to kick sand. I dealt with the video player because I didn’t like any alternatives, but recently, they moved the ‘sort by’ menu to the settings! You know how to tap 3 buttons to get to the menu vs the original 1. Why would they change this? Incompetence. For the sake of changing stuff, they change THE most used feature on the app. With this update, it is my final use of this horrid app. Maybe it will change in the future, but with other social media platforms incorporating videos into their app, I doubt Reddit mobile will stray away. The best thing about Reddit was that it was a social media platform that didn’t *feel* like a social media app, but now they’re moving in that direction with their exclusive, dumb ideas. It’s a shame, I’ll be using the alternative and learning it from the beginning because Reddit mobile is NOT getting better and getting much, much worse. 1 star. Terrible app. Deleted.

A forced, and frustrating, mess. Let me be clear: I have used the Apollo app for my Reddit needs for about 2 years now. Prior to this I was using the official Reddit app. I didn’t “hate” the official app, but in comparison to so many apps in the App Store, it felt very behind and lackluster. Bad loading times, the UI was horrible, and just an overall poor experience that I put up with because “it’ll get better.” After switching to Apollo on a whim, I found a solution to every single issue the official Reddit app had for me at the time. Everything, every little detail, was so thought out. The UI, the gestures to comment, upvote/downvote, etc. was so useful and felt so natural on an iPhone. However, Reddit has forced Apollo to close, and I decided to give the official app another go. While it improved since I last used it, it certainly is not the best app to use Reddit on. That one is gone, all by Reddit’s own doing. Reddit should really take what Apollo did so well and use that to build onto their own app. The little details do go a long way, and I genuinely believe the Reddit app could benefit by taking these details and working them into their app. But the fact that they are, for lack of better term, forcing this decision to use a much worse app is truly a shame.

Not nearly as enjoyable of an experience. I’ve used Apollo to access Reddit ever since I’ve had an account, so I never knew what the native app experience was like and why so many people said it was trash. Now I know. It lacks so many features, it keeps turning my notifications back on, and it’s totally bogged down with ads. Even worse, it keeps populating my feed with “recommended” subreddits because I happened to read one post in there once, but then not showing me posts from the majority of the subreddits I follow. Seriously, half my feed is ads and recommended subreddits I don’t care about (otherwise I’d subscribe to them), and the other half is posts from the same 4-5 subreddits that I am subscribed to. I’m literally missing out on 95% of the content I want to see (as indicated BY SUBSCRIBING) and then getting inundated with content I don’t want and didn’t ask for. What a horrible UX design. Your UI design could use an overhaul as well. Even something as seemingly simple as following a comment thread is difficult because there is nothing that helps differentiate the comment level, so the longer the thread gets, the harder it is to tell which child comment goes to which parent comment. I mean, come on. Reddit is a conversational forum! Being able to easily follow the conversation is UI 101! Anyway. I can now honestly say I agree - this app is trash. It’s too bad Reddit DGAF.

Every time they fix one thing, they break three more.. Every time this app updates, it gets worse. They change useless things like the visuals of the buttons to save images and videos (if and when that works). On that note, for reasons unknown to man or beast, heaven or earth, they removed the ability to save GIFs. It’s not the first time, and I assume sooner or later it’ll be back and they’ll want praise for once again doing the absolute bare minimum. The ability to save videos almost never works either, unless you know the trick to go to comments, go back, press the save button again, and hope to your personal god *that* works. Even if it does work, for some reason the videos always save without sound. All of these used to be features that inexplicably are constantly removed, changed, replaced, and put back. Honestly, I don’t know why this app, of all apps, needs to update this much. Especially when most of the changes are aesthetic and the ones that aren’t always make things worse. I never got a chance to use any of the third-party apps, but I wish that I had. The only reason I’m giving this two stars instead of one is so that people don’t think that this is a fake review and it gets filtered out. This is a real review and real frustration from a real user. But it’s like the people who designed this app don’t actually use it themselves. Just make things work and then leave it alone.

Somebody Janked Up iOS Users Posting This Update. Sooooo... I literally CAN NOT post anywhere now because I am getting the message "Not Allowed In This Community" on every single subreddit. I can comment, vote, give awards, and even spend currency on your app without any issue... ??!!BUT I CAN'T POST ANYWHERE BECAUSE YOUR iOS APP IS MAKING ME AS EITHER NSFW OR SOMETHING ALONG THAT LINES THAT'S LEFT ME BARRED FROM DOING THE ONE THING I USE REDDIT FOR!!?? It's not just myself but also many other iOS users whom are experiencing the exact same problem with no response, fix in app, tech support, or an update to fix this MAJOR BUG. If you aren't aware of this issue by now then you should be. An I can go figure you are all well aware; but you just don't care unless it is affecting a large majority, all users, or could hinder the income of this lazy but more than capable to be a better company regardless of current worth it should/could be... Money and Power must truly be something... Because every company that is built on a foundation of users like myself; every last one of these companies have forgotten why they are running a social networking community to begin with. For the user becomes a thing of the past... Every time... An it becomes ALL ABOUT HOW MUCH MORE OF A PERCENT THEY CAN NET NEXT ROUND

Don’t Use This App. I’ve been using Apollo for years now and it was genuinely one of the best apps I’ve ever used on iOS. I loved the simple, responsive and intuitive UI, as well as all of its features. Recently, the Reddit corporate team has decided to kill all 3rd party apps with their ridiculous API pricing. These 3rd party apps include Apollo, RIF, Narwhal and others. All of these apps had many dedicated users who loved using them to post, moderate and comment on Reddit. Despite this, Reddit got greedy and decided to kill them. In addition to this, the official Reddit app is actual garbage compared to 3rd party apps. It is full of ads, less intuitive and much slower. Instead of working with 3rd party app developers to either negotiate a reasonable price or improve their app, they choose to be selfish and spit in the face of their most dedicated users. To add further insult to injury, Reddit’s CEO decided to falsely accuse Apollo’s developer of blackmail in an attempt to make themselves look better. Fortunately, Apollo’s developer recorded their calls and posted the evidence to refute Reddit’s claims. If you’ve read to this point, I hope you understand that Reddit is purely profit-driven, anti-user garbage now. Do not support them by using their garbage app.

Reddit Mobile Meh.. VoiceOver no longer reads long posts or comments, and by long I mean not long at all.⠀––⠀The awful scroll button that teleports you through the replies when you don't tap anywhere near it is back.⠀––⠀You can't unhide posts from within them.⠀––⠀You can't subscribe to video posts.⠀––⠀When reporting posts/comments, selecting any option other than "Breaks r/[subreddit]'s rules" or "Hate" causes the Next/Submit Report button to disappear.⠀––⠀Haven't been able to crosspost to my profile for >2 years. Reddit Support won't answer me, other than an automated message saying to reinstall the app...which doesn't work. My iPad doesn't even show the crosspost option within posts.⠀––⠀The reel layout for videos is annoying.⠀––⠀Pressing down for nearly a second (say, while scrolling) collapses the entire comment thread. If it's a long thread I can't find where I was.⠀––⠀Sometimes clicking to view more replies on a comment puts me in the replies of a different thread on that post, and it does this until I leave the post and come back.⠀––⠀Most of my other complaints are with Reddit in general. Like not being able to add captions to single pictures, not being able to unarchive profile posts, etc.

Zero Customer Service. I was actually a huge fan of Reddit. I frequently purchased coins to give away fake internet awards, I purchased many of their collectibles and I finally started paying for premium. I much preferred Reddit over other social media apps like Discord and Twitter, but that all changed thanks to my experience these last few months. I was just before my two year cake day and ended up with something I’m told is an “IP ban” a ban evasion that never occurred because I was no longer banned in the sub at the time the comments were made. It all started after I was unbanned from a community and as soon as I posted my first comment in that sub, I received a temporary ban. After the temp ban was over, I reached out to the subreddit mods and to support to make sure that I was officially in the clear to make comments in that sub again. The mods said I was fine, but Reddit support never responded. I took a chance and made a comment on that sub again and, boom….permanent ban. I have made multiple requests to support with zero response, other than “the ban stands”. It’s as if nobody is reading or investigating what I have been explaining. Any reasonable person could look at the evidence I am providing (screen shots from the mods) and see that the permanent ban was in error.

A Decade of Reddit: My Go-To App for Entertainment, Information, and Community. I've been using Reddit for over 10 years now and it's honestly been a game-changer for me. Not only has it been a source of entertainment and information, but it's also connected me with a community of like-minded individuals who have become friends and even a support system for me. What I love about Reddit is that it truly has something for everyone. No matter what your interests are, there is a subreddit for it and a group of people who are passionate about the same things. It's a place where I can have meaningful discussions and learn about new perspectives and ideas. But it's not just about the content on Reddit. The app itself is user-friendly and constantly improving. I've never had any major issues with it and the updates always bring new features and improvements. Overall, Reddit has been a integral part of my life for the past decade and I can't recommend it enough. If you're someone who loves to learn, connect with others, and be entertained, then Reddit is the app for you. Thank you to the team at Reddit for creating such an amazing platform. Edit: Fix the issue where when im on safari and click on a Reddit link it takes me to the App Store. I have Reddit downloaded!!! Stop making it unintuitive.

Full of quirks and bugs. Lots of annoying bugs. On an up-to-date M1 iPad Pro. Can’t use the margins to scroll ONLY in the home feed. Oftentimes and randomly, the back arrow when reading a post from any feed will not work, the back arrow completely disappears, or the back arrow will open some random media full-screen. When on the home feed, leave the app momentarily and go back into it, the home feed is scrolled back to the top instead of where you were. Sometimes won’t play media. Some media automatically unmutes when played, some don’t - seems completely random. Randomly, the Home/Popular/News/Latest drop-down menu and the subscribed subs menu just disappears. Randomly, when trying to scroll down the home feed, the up swipes are interpreted as right swipes. In-app notification badge often does not automatically show up, must go into notifications tab and refresh. And oftentimes when clicking the title of a media post, it opens the media instead of going into the post. And when playing a video full screen the overlay doesn’t go away on its own, you have to tap to make it go away. Most of these behaviors seemed to have started recently, with an update of some sort. Edit: Reddit recently cut off third party apps. Now you can’t unsubscribe from subs and it doesn’t respond to ‘show fewer posts like this’. What a mess. Maybe fix your own app if you’re going to do this. App is still flaky and annoying to use with all these bugs!

The only social media/sharing site I use. I've been using Reddit for 6 years, and while there's been a lot of changes-some good and some bad-it's still the best media platform, by far. The voting system and user content personalization keeps the content fresh and of decent quality. I never get bored. There's such great variety on here: politics, science, literature, world/local news, popular news, comedy, idiotic comments, philosophical conversation, support groups, --the list is literally endless, and if you can't find the sub you want, they're very easy to make up (although moderating can be a pain sometimes, I hear). The app itself is well-designed, and easier to navigate than it's sister app, Alien Blue. That said, I wish there was a way to easily (or at all) quote (c&p) other users and/or to access the content on the site in safari. I actually have the question our on r/reddithelp as to whether these are possible (I thought they were), so if I find they are, I'll update the review. Update, June 2023. My how the mighty have fallen. I’m not even wasting my time outlining all of the ways Reddit has let its users down. I’ve begun to suspect it’s intentional, as the last bastion of progressive discourse online. Regardless, and for many, many other reasons, after over a decade as a user and sometime-mod, I’m absolutely done with Reddit. This site is destined for the garbage.

Terrible app, and it’s your only option starting July 1st. Do you love having ads for religious extremism shoved down your throat multiple times a day? Do you wish there was no way to get this content out of your feed, no matter how much you report it or attempt to block the advertiser? This is the app for you! “Why, simply use a third-party app that doesn’t have ads!” Well, starting July 1st, third-party apps are shutting down due to Reddit imposing a brand new API pricing strategy that could cost third-party apps millions to continue running. Not only do these third-party apps provide a better user-experience than the god awful official app, it provides better accessibility options for disabled folks, as well as better modding tools for the people who generously donate their time to keep Reddit’s communities thriving. It’s a selfish, greedy move no matter how you spin it. I never felt the need to use third-party apps, but I understand their importance. If I wasn’t getting Jesus ads shoved down my throat every two seconds, I may have stuck around despite this awful decision, but this is my final straw. Based on the number of subreddits protesting this decision, I doubt I’m the only one. Hope y’all enjoy watching your user base dwindle.

Constantly making terrible updates, never to be fixed. Devs can’t leave a good thing alone. App is constantly being updated and every time it is, it gets more frustrating to use. Good features are constantly being taken away and not replaced. Meanwhile, frustrating features that don’t make sense are all more common. Click on post title, and it no longer takes you to comments. It opens video player instead. Try to swipe on comment to collapse, and it changes the post entirely. It’s really feels like the people that make this app don’t use it at all. Not to mention they switched to a native video player that doesn’t work a large percentage of the time. What once was a reliable system, has been replaced by a faulty system that is consistently not working. It’d be different if this was experimental, or fixed with time. Instead, these changes are introduced with no concern for the user base, and what feels like no intention of being fixed. The community does not receive it well, and announces their displeasure. Then they are left that way, to never be touched again. Not very happy with the way this app has been managed the last few years. Going to have to switch to an alternative.

REDDiT!!😃. I love ReDDIT! The only thing I would change is the user interface. I’m pretty new to REDDIT, so I never saw much of the old UI, but the current one is very counterintuitive and confusing. But other than that I love this place. It’s a central hub for discussion of just about anything. With monopolies choking us to death (5 or 6 companies control almost all of what we see, hear, read or watch) free speech is a 4 letter word. Comment sections have been shut down so the media can gaslight us. The arts are dead because of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 (you’ll have to figure that one out yourself, but here’s a hint - 5 companies are not going to make the same films that 50 or 100 companies (who all fight for their own corner of the market) would. People that own everything would rather make 5 movies and try to force everyone to watch those. Very little options, sellers control the market, quality drops, formulas get made and simplified, etc. Sorry for the digression, but I will continue to get this info out to people until we fix this entire mess, break these monopolies and bring law and order back into our government. Anyway, love the site but bring back the old UI. Thanks everybody!

The Real Problem. So I’ve been on Reddit for around a week and I really loved it! The community was great and there was a lot to do there until recently. One day I went on and seemed to not be able to comment or post anything. I then found out a thing called being Shadowbanned which is what reddit dose to people if they break there rules. I find this reasonable as there needs to be a moderated platform for people. I looked more into it and went to the subreddit r/shadowban to see if I was shadowbanned and turns out I was. I then took the past 30 mins to got though the comments and posts I ever made and didn’t see anything. Of course if I got shadowbanned I have to happen to break the rules somehow, so I went to the mods them self’s to not be unshadowbanned but more of what I did wrong. Unfortunately to the dismay of me they never replied so I sent them any message asking kindly what I have done. The same thing happened and to this day I still don’t know why I got shadowbanned. Though all of this I’ve made 3 accounts and all shaowbanned trying to to break the rules, one of those accounts I literally made only 3 comments. I never written a Apple review before but this app has gotten me so upset I had to write a review. Reddit needs to implement something for people and get there acted together if they ever want me back again, I’m really disappointed with everything they did.

Terrible App. If I could leave a 0-star rating I would. This app has problems galore that looking through reviews of it from the past 6 months would only list probably half of them. More development time was probably spent in creating those tacky Reddit NFTs than on this app. Previously you could use reliable and helpful third-party apps that had three times the features than this sorry-excuse for a web browser, but now this is all that remains since they charge absolutely ludicrous prices to the developers of the third-party apps who can’t possibly afford to pay it. I barely ever use Reddit anymore: previously I would surf Reddit via Apollo (an actual competently developed app), but I refuse to use this waste of phone storage space in Apollo’s place. As a result, I and many others have stopped browsing Reddit almost entirely. We all have much better things to do on our computers than waste time on Reddit of all things. As per usual of the dim-witted and greedy Reddit leadership, this lapse of sane decision-making will no doubt hasten the sites already imminent death because no one in their right mind would use an app that still has the same major bugs, issues, and missing features that it did when it released years ago.

I love Reddit but this app man…. I don’t understand why I can’t do broad searches within the Reddit app but rather have to search it in safari. Although frustrating, I have gotten used to having to google search my questions/communities BUT what really begins to frustrate me is that when I search in safari, 99% of the time I have to open it in app to view the posts which is always such a process. I have to click “take me to app” and it always takes me to the App Store- it never actually opens in app. Then, what’s even more annoying is there are so many updates that before I can even enter the app I have to wait for the app to update for the millionth time. And mind you, I search for answers on Reddit more than I probably should so I have to do this process of updating the app and then click at least 5 times to take me to the app before it even opens in the app!! Like it doesn’t register the first few times and just takes me to the App Store where I press “open” only to be brought to the main Reddit feed and not what I searched for. So while I am unable to read it on safari I am also unable to read it in the app. Super frustrating! I love Reddit I just feel like this shouldn’t be an issue so I’m hoping someone sees this to make the app more user friendly!

Let’s talk about the app itself, and not the website. Honestly I’d have to recommend that anyone installing Reddit for the first time find a different app to use it. Long time Reddit users have almost always hated the official app, but I never really understood their problem with it. I liked the UI, and there were a bunch of useful QoL features that other Reddit apps didn’t have. That is no longer the case. ~1.5 years ago every update started breaking or outright stripping those features. They’re always small changes. No one change really makes that big of an impact. Things like no longer being able to change the view (card, normal, compact) on search results, the weird comment ‘tray’ that prevents you from swiping horizontally between posts, the endless compatibility issues with various embedded video hosting sites, etc. The official app isn’t as broken as some people make it out to be. However, I still advise that new users not climb onboard the sinking ship. Any features you like/get used to in the official app will be removed before long, and there will be no way to get it back. Find an app made by a 3rd party that factors community feedback into development decisions.

Stop deleting one-star reviews. As others have reviewed, it has a serious moderation issue. It’s gotten much worse because Reddit now smashed admins (Reddit employees) onto larger communities. While this may bring some good tech support, they also appear to have gone trolling for the most dishonest, toxic people they can find. They are either too lazy to give you anything other than a canned response or vile, abusive, clowns who gaslight their victims. It’s been made worse by allowing users to directly report anything to admins. Now packs of idiots run around reporting anything they disagree with or issuing false reports on people who happen to catch their abusive eyes. The communities I frequented were well moderatored. It was the admins who were absolutely out of control. It is not a joke to say that they lie, abuse, and, in my case, actually tried to change the log to hide what they were doing. Customer Service is non-existent. Anything short of public scorn gets ignored. If you pursue Newsweek, you’ll occasionally get a puff piece about something off of Reddit. That’s the most you need to invest in this app. Horrible user experience created by abusive employees. You can be absolutely fine on the forum, but it’s Reddit employees themselves that ruin it for everyone. Wall Street is refusing to issue an IPO, you be wise to invest the same amount: nothing.

Coolest people and App. You get to Scroll through Weird Avatars some Reptilian features some Asian,some Bohemian like all with different colors. I found it took too long to match up the character Avatar and the Colors I wanted but was Happy to find One I could deal with. So then you anonymously search vast subjects your interested in. Because you believe No One Can Identify You, You can be Free to Tell the Truth about something and that is so needed today when some people and some in powerful positions are telling us what we can say and what we can’t. Why do some people want to have total control over others? We don’t become our Best Self without the Freedom to Think outside the Box. Respect others perspectives. Sure some have decided to strictly stay true to their own convictions, culture, or education, but we can all learn something from each other from personal experiences that can be told on a Social Media platform that won’t shame you, or threaten to cancel you. We Become Better at Being Human when we remember we are All Humans Being.

Threatened w/ ban for reporting animal abuse. Automated message warned me that i would be permanently banned if i keep false reporting. I have only reported blatant rule breaks such as animal abuse and sexism. Examples of animal abuse and sexism: kids put fish in a toilet while laughing and then flushed the toilet. Woman was saying men are genetically inferior and need to be cleansed from the gene pool. Reddit reviewed both and said that there was no rule break. Now i have been suspended for quoting a racist that i was responding to. They were saying variations of “why is it always [insert group of people based on skin color] doing x y z”, and i made an intelligent response after quoting the racist, clearly making a case for antiracism. I got suspended for “attacking marginalized or vulnerable groups of people” because reddit doesn't know what quotation marks mean. I have since found out that this is a common occurrence. Worst of all, this app is absolute brain rot and should be avoided at all costs. Over Fifty percent of redditors are children and the other half are people immature enough to use an app run by children for children. Ive already muted over fifty subreddits, but the brain rot has pervaded to ever corner of reddit. 6 years ago the app was better (but still a waste of time) and it has been in a sharp decline for at least 3 years now.

Where are my communities?. Well, it finally happened - I finally ditched the official Reddit app for a Reddit client. A lot of users have had issues with many of the updates and general usability of the official app over the last couple of years but I hung in there. The final straw for me was when an update released a couple of weeks ago made it so my communities no longer display and it times out whole searching for them. I researched it, and others are experiencing the same thing which has been reported to Reddit but no fix has been provided in the handful of subsequent updates. I tried out a few other options and landed on an app that is reminiscent of Reddit’s glory days, complete with a responsive developer who interacts with the community and updates the app based on suggestions from actual users. Sorry Reddit, I love the platform but your app has degenerated so much I’ve decided it’s time to go - I’m leaving you for a third party app. Even if this bug were to be fixed and you change your ways, I’m happy with my new crush and don’t foresee myself coming back to you. It was fun while it lasted and I’ll look back on those years fondly, but you’ve changed for the worst - best of luck to you and your developers. Off I go, to spend time with my new Reddit squeeze :)

Word’s Can’t Explain…Or Can They?. First of all if anyone thinks that you will be treated fairly, that you will have a voice, or a place where you can have a different mindset from everyone else, where you don’t feel like the website is controlled by the Gestapo, or Stalin’s NKVD, or feel pressured to “go with the flow” to be treated as “sheep”. Well then this app isn’t for you. Because it certainly wasn’t for me. It doesn’t matter how polite you are, how cordial or reasonable you are you have to build up “Karma” and a reputation to even post a comment. I had a comment stating “Mario Cart Be Like:” and it got taken down because it quote: “Violated rules and guidelines” but yet everyone on that same page is using curse words and other vulgar types of language. I put in an inquiry to see if I could get the situation resolved and I was a bit frustrated but at the same time I wanted to make sure I was being respectful. And I was essentially told to give a less “triggered inquiry” So me being me I chose to be the bigger man and apologize even though I had nothing to apologize for. But I stated to them many times that I come in peace and my objective is humor but not the type that makes targets or victims of anyone. And they told me to give a less “triggered response”. Which tells me the wheel is spinning inside their head but the hamster is dead. If you can’t stand ignorance avoid this.

Banned for no reason. This app is so sensitive. I got heavily downvoted then BANNED PERMANENTLY for saying ‘I think you need to read the post again..’ which the person did.. He asked a question that was ANSWERED IN THE POST and was heavily informed about that exact question. And since I got downvoted hard, and I guess some people reported me, I got banned. I tried to make another account but they banned that one too. I’m scared that they banned my IP address because my mom uses Reddit and I don't want her account to get banned just because mine did.. I looked up this issue and this is a HUGE problem on reddit. You literally can’t have your own opinion on this app, or say anything that will POSSIBLY upset people. And if you do, its downvotes, downvotes, downvotes. Then it will be led by subreddit banning or permanent banning. I can understand if someone was being racist, homophobic or just disrespectful. But I see the simplest comments get downvoted. One time, on r/aww it was a video of a woman with her dog at the gym and the dog was being cute or whatever. Some people were wondering why she was allowed to have a dog at the gym so someone answered saying, “She owns the gym, so thats why the dog is there:)” and it had -30 DOWNVOTES??!! WHY?! People on that app are SO sensitive! And they were right!! I looked it up and she did own the gym! And guess what? I tried to click on their account and it was banned. Probably for literally just that one comment. Do better Reddit.

You cannot have an opinion and you have to think the same way everyone else does :/!. The issue with Reddit is you can’t actually have an opinion, and by that I mean valid opinions that are harmless such as which chip flavor is better or little things like that. The downvote feature penalizes you for getting downvoted, such as it’ll hide your comments or not let you post on certain subreddits if you don’t have enough. For example on the hello fresh subreddit, there was a question asking if they think the price is worth it and only people who agreed yes had upvotes and they downvoted anyone who said they personally didn’t feel like it was worth it. You make a thread asking a question and to have people voice their different harmless opinions, yet they got downvoted? This just proves you have to think the same mindset as everyone else, which is just not how the real world works. The downvote feature should be replaced with if a comment gets reported a certain amount of time it’s automatically deleted, since there could be racist comments or creepy ones that need to get deleted which is understandable. Yet it’s tiring to get downvoted for simple things. People will literally go as far as checking your whole post history and page just to add on to a downvote and prove their point, which is super … odd to me. I honestly just don’t like posting at this point, because even for simple questions I get downvoted if people find it too boring, which is dumb.

Update: Bugs. New: I am really unhappy with the bugs in the updated version in the app. In certain subreddits that I am active in, I can no longer sort by “New”. The “New” sorting button is completely broken. My settings are set to sort by New, and my communities are set to automatically sort by new, but this feature no longer works. I can see the newest posts in the communities I am in on Safari, but I can no longer see them on the app. Once fixed, I’ll update my rating because I’ve been on Reddit for years and this is my favorite source of Social Media. Hopefully this will be fixed soon because this is a huge issue, and judging from other reviews, I am not the only one having this problem. Previous Review: I have been using the Reddit app for quite a while now, and I love it. There are so many great features, and the process is very smooth. The application is also very easy to use, and the admins are always very helpful if any issues arise. This is 100% the best app I have ever used. If I could request an addition to anything, I would say more customizable avatars for purchase and to bring back power ups, but this is definitely no downside to having the app. It’s my favorite!

Not Working, Design Changes Hurt User Experience. This app was working just fine until the recent updates where Reddit has (1) swapped the video player with a TikTok wannabe video players and forced videos to sticky to the top of posts and (2) replaced the bottom communities tab that conveniently listed recent communities, favorited communities, and all other joined communities with an Pinterest-like browse tab which includes none of my communities. Now to get my communities list I have to tap a More button in the left - which is difficult to reach on an iPhone 12 Max - to open a side pane that wasn’t loading until I opened and closed the app a bunch of times (suggested by an admin on r/Redditmobile). What’s even worse is that if I want to jump to another one of my communities I **cannot**. I’m forced to tap the arrow in the top of the screen to exit the community, then I have to tap the More button to open the pane AGAIN, and then I can scroll to my desired community. The extra tap is annoying and frustrating. I wish these forced changes were optional so I could sidestep these weird choices whatever leaders at Reddit are forcing because they want to increase engagement in more boring normie communities that may have more ads.

Perfect App. Reddit is the best social media app available out of every single social media app that the majority of the population uses, like even though TikTok is very main stream right now, it can get really old, always seeing the same videos and what not, but Reddit however is like a fresh breath of air, constantly updated, pages for every single content out there- literally anything you can think of and you want to see wether it’s just a hobby, something funny, wanting to learn new stuff or even just people fighting, wanting to find something new, or you are curious legit anything you can think of you will be able to find a Reddit page for it, I never have any issues with Reddit— no lagging, no connection issues, I never seen the same videos over and over again, the app is super easy to use and learn so no excuses to not have the app unless you just really don’t want to download it or have an account, you can just go through Reddit with a guest account aswell, perfect app! Deserves all 5 stars I gave it, keep doing you reddit !! 😁😁😁☺️

The UI “updates” are terrible and not user-friendly!. HEADS UP! THE PREVIEW IS NOTHING LIKE WHAT THE APP LOOKS LIKE NOW! Continuously, Reddit App developers change the UI not to fix bugs but to make a worse experience for users. Reddit used to have a UI design that set it apart and was functional. Now the app is designed to emulate other social media apps and it does not fit with existing design choices. The new video player is somehow worse than the video player that existed previously (and was never fixed, despite constant bug reports). Sorting options have been removed from the top of the tabs and placed within the profile menu (and only lets you sort for home now). That means instead of one click to sort, it’s now three. They’ve decided, in their infinite wisdom, to change how the upvote, comment, and share buttons are displayed. Instead of across the entire bottom of a post, spread out so you know what you’re clicking, it’s all now squished to the bottom left of the post. They choose to overhaul the design of the UI repeatedly, straying further and further away from what made Reddit unique while not fixing any of the existing issues. I could go on and on about the horrible choices they continue to make, and how they don’t listen to the community about what we actually want out of the app, but they clearly don’t listen (duh).

Stay back, and don't come back until their API prices are reverted.. As of now with the abysmal prices of Reddit's API plus their absolutely narcissistic way that they have handled the community's answers, the user are now less valuable than the revenue their API calls produce. Many apps will be shutting down TOMORROW because the prices they have been given are madness. For instance, Apollo, a 3rd party app that has been running for the past 10 years, and has even been recognized by iPhone (i.e. WWDC) is 24 cents for every 1000 API calls, with each call being sent for just about anything you do. Comment? Call. Post? Call. Upvote or downvote? Either one is a call. With all of those costing 24 cents to Apollo to give to Reddit, this amounts to 2 million dollars, MONTHLY. Keep in mind, the sole maker of the app, u/iamthatis AKA Christian, ran the app and only supported himself through completely optional extras. Apollo won't even be the only casualty of such a change. Narwhal, Reddit is Fun, etc. u/spez AKA Steve Huffman, you have gave each and every moderator team, the people who made your servers live, a singular clap then a "Screw you". Maybe that 2 Million a month won't be so worth it when you'll have a community that loathes you, and if you don't know what "loath" means, which I completely understand by this point, this means you'll be considered the enemy of Reddit.

Instagram 2.0. Final Update: I’ve used this app for 5+ years and am now deleting it. Between the rearranged USI making it harder to enjoy, the recent API issue, and the ads, my god the ads. It seems every third post is an ad and they’re never anything I’m interested in. There are thousands of Christian’s ads that are just completely tone death. Also the content quality has just diminished. It’s great for wasting time but there really isn’t anything that interesting going on anymore. I wouldn’t recommend it, it’s just a huge waste of time. I’m deleting it for good now. Finally time to go out and touch grass. The recent updates have really killed the magic of Reddit. It feels like an Instagram clone now. They made the list of subreddits harder to access and replaced them with a “feed” of popular stuff that I’m not interested in. The ads and recommended communities are excessive and Intrusive. Very much has gone from, online form for discussion, to social media “check out my avatar” and upvote my posts! A lot of the magic that made Reddit unique has given way to the pressure of becoming a social media platform. If you want to look at pictures get Instagram instead. Has been a great opportunity for me to quit though. This app is a complete waste of time and would not recommend. Given 2 stars just for what Reddit used to be. The interface has ceased to be user friendly

Now requires account to follow. I’m not really into social media due to the lack of privacy and mundane content. Reddit is the most I do. I really liked that I could follow more positive, uplifting feeds and as a result didn’t have to stroll thru everything. Since it was updated (the previous one, not the one 5 days ago), now it asks you to create an account to follow specific feeds. I don’t know if you can still view only your chose feeds cuz I don’t care to create an account when I didn’t have to before. Looking at Reddit in its entirety influences me negatively, hence the reason I only followed Calvin & Hobbes, Earth Porn, Humans Being Bros, and Animals Being Bros. Before the update, Reddit started with my feed and I had the option to view Popular. Now all you have is Popular and News. I gave the new update a try for over two months but now I find myself feeling anxious or angry after strolling Reddit, just as I used to do before I began following more positive feeds only. Creating an account may be a simple matter for many but it’s not for me. To me it’s another way for tech to have some of your private information when it’s not necessary. I don’t do comments or votes so why should I have to sign in? So after giving the new Reddit a try, I’ve decided it’s best for me to delete it.

I haven’t had any issues with the app till now—video player, I’m looking at you.. Man, sometimes I like to watch 5 second long videos, read the comments for a couple minutes, and get on with my day. Unfortunately now I can’t even do that because the video keeps looping, which turns my comment reading session into a torture session. Come on, is that tiktok ripoff trend so lucrative that you have to jump on it too? Nobody on Reddit wants tiktok on the platform—if they did they’d be using tiktok. Stop trying to be like the social media giants and go back to being your own thing! That’s why your user base exists and you’re gonna lose a lot of us if you keep making these awful choices. Ok but for real, the video player UI is just awful. On everything else the upvote/downvote buttons are on the left, but on the video player they’re on the right. The pause button is tiny. Pressing the “comments” icon takes you to the video instead of the comments, and to read the comments you have to pause the video first (if you care about your sanity). Scrolling on the video no longer takes you to the comments but to another random video. You can do better. Or wait, how bout you just go back to what was there? I never had an issue with the old player.

Does not care about users, moderators, or developers. At one point in time Reddit was a free speech centric community with quality content and communities and at this point in time it is an over-corporatized and over-valued app. The Reddit team has shown its lack of care for users with third party readers, developers of apps and bots that can help everything from getting you a job to automoderation, and moderators by making their jobs harder and threatening to replace the founders do once great communities for expressing their opinion on the current state of Reddit. Furthermore they are even unwilling to work with some developers who are willing to pay for the API access. This company has consistently said one thing and done the exact opposite for the last few years and the site is suffering because of it. With a notable example being Reddit stating they’d like to avoid being like elon and then weeks later admitting they’re actively replicating his business model which quite blatantly killed Twitter. After June 30th I will no longer be using or supporting Reddit, an app I once loved as an alternative to other social media platforms offered. I highly recommend no one else does either. Good luck with an IPO for a site based on the volunteer work of others after you’ve angered everyone who built your success, because I feel the near future for Reddit contains a lot of internal sabotage and debt.

Dark UX patterns. Reddit used to be great. It’s still really good, but the commercialization of it has pushed the need for growth and conversion. These metrics sound good to investors, so now we cannot see 18+ subreddits in a browser, you get forced to download the app (3rd party apps work normally, for now, I fully expect them to enforce a move to the official app soon though). At every turn you get lured into using the app. For the majority of redditors who just want to “read it” this is a dark pattern, as we don’t want to, but are being forced to download and use the app under the guise of a better experience. But we all know that companies can collect more data and metrics from apps, because most of us are savvy enough to use as blockers and DNS filters like NextDNS on our regular browsers. So Reddit itself gets four stars. This app gets 4 stars if you want it. The one star is for the overall experience of this app, as an unnecessary bloat to my phone, and overreach into my data forced by greedy investors, and the use of UX dark patterns. To the UX researchers and designers, come join us on Mixed Methods slack channel, because you need some education on how to push back to management—this won’t end well for Reddit imo.

Declining features. I’ve used this app for years. For the last 2 and half years or so, almost every update tries to ‘refine’ the app to make it better. It adds in recommendations that I don’t want, new tabs I never asked for, breaks the post swipe feature (or just outright removes it), forces the media player into a poor TikTok replica that no one asked for. I miss the way this app worked from about 3 years ago. The search bar at the top didn’t randomly break, the video’s actually played mostly correct. For how much I use the app, I can’t really be justified in giving it a 1 star. Considering that this app is marketed as the official Reddit app, I’d expect them to know their target audience, but competing apps are only growing more popular due to new and increasing issues with this app. I’m probably not leaving Reddit for a long while, but I don’t know how much longer I can commit to this app. June 18, 2023 Updated the app a couple weeks ago. I absolutely love how often the app crashes, I cannot scroll for me than 10-15 minutes before it crashes. If I’m on the app for a few minutes, background it, lock my phone and come back an hour or two later, it’ll crash almost immediately. I’m going down to a 1 star review because the app is literally only growing worse. That’s also not even touching the removal of 3rd party apps. I did not think it would get worse, and then it did.

Reddit has been a good app until now. I love this app, I really do but when the developers made it so when you tap a photo or a video it goes to this different player that when you scroll up it goes to a random video from a subreddit that you haven’t joined. I mean yes I know why that it was changed to do that, so you can have more variety on watching similar content. For awhile I got passed that for videos by taping a photo and swiping to the left to get to the video but now in a recent update they made it so taping on photos does the same thing with videos which at least for me it really annoying. I know just me saying this won’t get anything changed so I’m hoping that other people agree with me or at least make it a setting to change it back to the way it was before you changed it to what you have now for a video player. Adding this after making this review, also why did the developers get rid of the sorting system that they had to change it to new, hot, top, or controversial it’s just bad app design to get rid of these things that people love about Reddit but changing it to this, I’m not really mad just annoyed and kinda disappointed in the developers on getting rid of the sort option and changing the video player

New update is broken and frustrating. After the new 2022 update where they removed the communities tap and put in a discovery tab is just annoying. I’m still not use to it. I keep clicking it trying to get to my communities by mistake. I already follow all the communities I want to, and if I want to find a new community for an interest, I just search it in the search bar. Plus the “drawer” for my communities does not work. Every time I click it, it doesn’t load anything. So basically I haven’t even been able to use Reddit for the past few weeks since the update. No point in using the app till this problem is fixed. The Communities tab needs to go back down to the hot bar. And the discovery tab should be moved elsewhere. Maybe it can pop up after selecting the search bar. That way if someone wants to search for new communities, they can get recommendations under the search bar before they start typing. Also bring back the alphabet select for communities we follow. It makes searching through 100+ communities easier. Summary: new update is broken and can’t access my communities drawer because nothing loads. And the new discovery tab that replaced the communities tab needs to be moved elsewhere, and the communities tab needs to go back down to the bottom for quick access.

Ruined by abusive mods and lack of customer service. Reddit used to be fun. Unfortunately, they ignore suspension appeals and attempts to receive customer service, while letting random basement dwellers to act as kings of the app, not only banning people unfairly from subs, but abusing the report function to get people suspended out of spite. Don’t spend money here. Don’t expect someone to help when you have an issue. You’d think when they allow coin purchases, they’d at least have a handful of people responding to help requests. Nope! Toss your money into the oblivion and prepare to be totally ignored by Reddit’s staff. Update for 2023: I got permanently suspended for “abuse of the report function” which I don’t even know how is possible. I’ve only ever reported heinous bullying and hatred. I tried to appeal and their response was emailing me to tell me that subreddits are run by mods who can do what they want (I wasn’t banned from a subreddit, but Reddit as a whole, which was clear from my appeal) and then banning all of my other accounts permanently as well. Legitimately didn’t think any social media could be worse than FB, IG, Twitter, TikTok or Nextdoor…but Reddit is. Their treatment of customers (I’ve actually spent money to support them) is absolutely disgusting.

Mods have too much power. The way Reddit works essentially is that anyone can claim a subreddit that isn’t already taken and create their own mod team. This means if you don’t want people to talk about baseball cards and you are the first person to get the subreddit r/baseballcards you can essentially shut down any conversation from ever happening about the subject on the platform. Not only that, if they actually want to let people talk about it they can police and ban them w/o giving any reason meaning subreddits often become home to power hungry mods who ban you for disagreeing with them even if not directly. Reddit has no problem with this because the site is big enough that the people effected don’t make enough noise to cause problems for the rest of the users nor do they have any form of recourse. They can appeal to the mod team of the subreddit but they will more than likely end up talking to the person who banned them. You can appeal directly to the Reddit mod team but like I said, they won’t care because as a mod you can ban anyone for any reason so they will say they aren’t breaking any rules. And don’t fool yourself if you are thinking this kind of degenerate mod behavior is exclusive to political subs and the like, it is every corner of reddit. The mods have too much power so of course it goes to their heads. There needs to be some kind of standard mods are held to, it has completely ruined the website.

One annoyance.... I honestly like the official Reddit app way better than any other third-party apps I've tried. However, I have one minor annoyance that's grown into a major gripe over time: whenever I use Safari to Google search something, and a Reddit post is in the search results, if I click the link there's a pop-up that says "See Reddit in..." and I have the option to open the page in the Reddit app or continue with the web browser. My problem is, whenever I try to open the page in the Reddit app, I'm sent to the app store as if I hadn't installed the app. I have never been able to open a link from Safari in the Reddit app, and I've tried everything. The app is up to date, I've tried opening the app before clicking the link and it still won't take me to the app. Honestly, if this was fixed I'd give 5 stars. The Reddit app is really good. But this is just so annoying, and it's difficult to search for a specific post within the app so there's no real workaround. So I'm just hoping the devs see this and find a way to fix it. I'm using an iPhone XR 128GB, if that matters.

Issues opening Reddit from Safari. I really like Reddit and I try to browse the forums and threads frequently but I’m pretty frustrated with the repeated issues I’ve had. Reddit frequently forgets my account so I’m pretty much always signed out. And my major problem right now is whenever I pull up Safari and try to google a particular thread to look at, the link will redirect me to Reddit. That fine except it’s super janky. I’ll say yes go to app and it will (on Safari) switch to a second page and then give me a second pop telling me I need to download the Reddit app (which I obviously already have). It will pull up Reddit at that point despite telling me I don’t have the app 🤦🏼‍♀️ It usually rapid fire switches between a whole bunch of blank pages on Reddit before finally loading whatever page I was trying to look at. Again, I really like Reddit but I definitely feel like the app is not refined. I don’t have these issues with any of the dozens of other apps I have and use regularly, including redirected to from Safari. I never encounter these issues except with Reddit. I explained best I could, but it’s very weird and frustrating. Hopefully Reddit can fix these issues. (And yes I always check and update Reddit, it never fixes it.)

Needs block filter URGENTLY. Dear Reddit creators, I have used Reddit for many years as a means to connect with other people of similar communities but the lack of a block filter has become increasingly annoying. To my knowledge there is no way to block a subreddits content from MY feed without upgrading to premium. There are many things I’d rather not see on Reddit when I’m simply scrolling through my gaming communities looking for updates and such. I have seen something so disgusting today I’ve had to delete Reddit all together due to the mental health crisis it spiraled me into. As someone who has dealt with crippling mental illness for years and spent countless days in therapy working through problems, having one single post set me back months on my progress is unacceptable. I know I’m not the only person who is suffering from this. All I want is to be able to see feeds from the subs I have joined so I don’t risk my mental health while looking at a thread of Pokémon related content. Do better! And just an added touch, NSFW content does not cover many of the things that I have been personally triggered by in subs I am not a part of nor have I ever shown interest in.

Very sensitive community/should have better guidelines. You can’t even state your own opinion with out getting bashed even if it is valid. People make hate pages about other people and im sure it says that you are not supposed to support any sort of bullying or harassment or send links or @ other people and screenshots. The community is just full of sad and awful people who think they know everything and say they want to make the world a better place but then make snark pages about people just because they view the world differently or have a different opinion. So many people get away with nasty hateful things on this platform to where it is worse than tiktok and twitter combined. Honestly the way the app is advertised makes it seem like a wonderful community and so supportive but in reality everyone on their brings u down. No wonder why so many people are depressed on this platform the whole thing is full of hate and ugliness. I don’t know if the owners or people that run the platform know what really happens on their but they should have alot more control on what is said and posted on their just like other platforms. There are seriously older adults on their along with probably minors that talk horribly about one another. The whole community is just horrible its self literally can’t even scroll down without seeing a post hating on someone; just full of so many sad people that think they are doing something right in the world.

Worse All The Time. If I want to seek out new subreddits, I will do that. If I’m curious what videos other users are watching, I will find out. But when I launch Reddit, I want to see the feed I’ve curated for myself first and foremost. The ads are awful enough. Reddit’s suggestions only add to the clutter. That I can disable these suggestions is beside the point. I am able to decide for myself what I want to see and participate in. Even more frustrating are the icons at the top of my feed that notify me there are live audio conversations in various subreddits. Although I’d disabled every so-called feature that seemed remotely related, I could not rid myself of these icons. I wondered, did I have to visit each individual subreddit to disable these? Are they permanent UI fixtures? The answer to the last, according to a comment on a changelog post, is yes. For now, at least, and for too long. The team “will be building a toggle” to opt out of the live bar. They implemented the feature and didn’t bother to provide users a choice in whether to participate. They’ll get around to that. Create separate feeds for suggestions and live dialogue, put them beside Popular and News, fine. I’ve no doubt some percentage of the user base are interested. But don’t opt in on my behalf.

Accessibility Concerns and Atrocious Communications. As a web designer for a large non-profit I’m extremely disappointed with the lackluster accessibility features of this app. I believe in equal access to information and forcing people onto this app or alternatives that are technically “accessible” but devoid of features is inexcusable. In addition to this, recent press releases from Reddit representatives and their CEO, Steve Huffman, make it very clear that their leadership does not care about the impact this will have on users with disability. If you can’t afford to service everyone equally, then you can’t afford to operate. In my world if your website or app isn’t totally accessible, than it’s not allowed exist (unless you want to knowingly discriminate against a large chunk of society and open the door for an ADA lawsuit.) I refuse to support a company acting in such a manner, though I still hold out hope that cooler heads may drive Reddit in a reasonable direction. Others may feel the app is enough for them and I respect their feelings. But until Reddit offers accessibility options on-par with priced out 3rd party apps AND improves their communications with their unpaid volunteer moderators, users, and the public, I will never recommend their app.

Fix the Bottom Bar Please!. Writing a review hoping this gets fixed so I can change the rating to five stars. The app will randomly change the orientation of the tabs at the bottom of the screen. Sometimes the app will open with my home page and five buttons at the bottom with the notifications on the far right, which is ideal. However, sometimes it opens to the world news tab and instead of a notifications tab, there is one that says “more” with three dots, where I can then click on notifications from a menu. Not only is this an annoying extra couple steps, there is no need for it since there is nothing else. On top of that, when I view my notifications this way, I cannot get to my profile in the same notifications tab. I can bring up the sidebar while viewing notifications, but when I click on my profile it just returns to my notification feed. Thought it was something that surely would have gotten caught and fixed quickly but the app was updated two days ago and this is still happening.

Good app but needs tweaking. Love the app but you can't do certain things on it. You can't do certain things through the app that you can on the computer. My friend can't turn off NSFW shield to view certain pages for example. Also I don't like how you can't leave the app on a thread, page or post for hours or days etc. it switches back to the homepage after a few hours which gets annoying when you have to go search for it again. Why not just return where you left off like a computer would behave? Other than these little gripes it's a fine app

One of the best free apps out there!. Reddit is one of the best apps out there in my opinion, it’s a place where everyone has a community to join, you can chill, discuss events happening all over be world, laugh at funny memes, get your mind blown, say “awww”, and meet new friends. I’m happy that Reddit is a place of free speech and doesn’t require a subscription or play unskippable ads every 10 seconds. 10/10 would definitely recommend. :D

New logo. Hi so as a new update you have changed the logo colour to show that black lives matter, you will by most change change it back but I thing a good feature would be having the option to change imbeteween Colours (even if just black and orange) I would love to see this feature as no other apps let you do this (as far as I know could be wrong) and don’t know if it is possible, love your app, it has given me a reason to get up in the morning, thank you

*fixed* Comments disappear when watching videos in landscape. Edit: bug has been fixed :) it’s nice and refreshing when developers listen. I like reading video comments and for some reason, they don’t show when watching videos in landscape. This worked fine before the app update. Note that I can view comments in portrait mode, just not landscape. Fix it reddit.

An “offical” app which is officially useless. Unfortunately I was forced to install and use this app since the latest apple iOS update made Reddit Blue unusable on my iPad. Sorry Reddit I didn’t change because of the invasive advertisement for your offical app, which appears on almost everything (it also covers half the screen). I used Reddit Blue comfortably for years, albeit with the casual crash. Fortunately the offical app doesn’t have that issue, and for the most part it is a solid app, but it is far from perfect. A particularly aggravating issue is the tendency for gifs and videos to not load. And the only solution reported seems to be to completely reset the app. Which also interrupts the place you were reading. Considering Reddit seems to be 50% gifs and videos I would say this is pretty far from okay. Researching this issue shows that it has been known about for over a entire year and the developers seem to either or not car or are to incompetent to fix it. I never used the offical app because it was never good years ago and now I’ve been stripped of a choice.

Better than the others, but has it's share of crazies. Reddit is a great social media platform as it allows you to laser focus in on certain areas of interest with its subreddits, developing great communities of like minded people. However, there are certainly areas of reddit that attract the lesser nature of man. The site wide moderation is often not enough to keep these corners clean and so they can often become far worse than a bigot ever could on Twitter. It's good to keep in mind that this is a downside of not only all social media, but society. There are bad people. But reddit helps you find what makes you happy if you look for it instead of letting yourself get tempted into the usual social media anger and sadness traps.

One of the best time killers. I’m in love with this app. No one social media platform can gang up together so well, be it disliking emojis or Tik Tok. It’s so addictive, just scrolling and scrolling. It’s great for memes, news, politics and just plain cool stuff. The whole concept of having multiple little social media’s in your social media (or supreddits, as they are called) is genius. You can join the ones you enjoy to just see things you like, and with one swift swipe you’ll be in the popular tab, seeing what the rest of the world likes. I highly recommend downloading this app, and remember to always downvote ads!

The video player is impossible to use. The video player has recently been updated and is now completely impossible to use on iPhone. The scrub bar is so low that you cannot scrub through a video without exiting the app! How did that get through testing?! Not to mention that when you click on ‘comments’ for some reason it takes you to a full screen video instead of taking you to, you know… THE COMMENTS. Why?! And the videos won’t load full screen, you have to exit back out to watch the video. Have your developers gone on holiday and you’ve replaced them with particularly dexterous goldfish?

Reddit Is incredible. You all should know that, so instead of reviewing the service I'm reviewing the mobile application, it works great. I came from a state of thinking that revolved around me being biased towards pc, thinking the mobile version of reddit would be terrible and un-optimised, it is neither of those things it works perfectly!! Why the 4 stars? Merely because to alter some settings you need to do that from the desktop site, which it redirects you to, this may be a hinderance or merely an annoyance to some mobile users.

A sub-par forced experience. This app has forever been a disappointment. While reddit communities are kept alive by the content shared and moderated by users, the official app is a woeful experience. The only saving grace has been 3rd party apps, which thanks to short-sightedness and stubbornness are now forced to close. I've been a daily active user for many years. I won't redownload the official app, nor will I use reddit anymore. I'll mourn the loss of communities and knowledge, and curse the corporate mindset of greed that failed to consider where its content (and profit) comes from - the users generating and moderating content. Best of lack crashing your IPO, not that you'll need it.

Lots of worthwhile subs but the mods are ruthless.. I enjoy reddit but it is fraught and filled with women wanting you to join their onlyfans, but there’s also wonderful, fulfilling and worthwhile subs like r/mademesmile . I just wish the mods on the various subs weren’t drunk with the power to silence other redditors. They love using the ban hammer! You won’t get a warning, you’ll be banned swiftly from any sub you might post in, and no amount of trying to work it out like adults will work. Most often your messages to explain your side will be ignored. If you are bothered by being downvoted for sharing your thoughts despite it not being in line with the majority of people, then yes, download this app. Perhaps Quora is more suitable, or even Imgur. Use at your own risk and if you have depression or anxiety, perhaps you should reconsider using this app.

Terrible UI and poor business decisions. Don’t get be wrong, I absolutely love Reddit - but this mobile app is straight garbage. Frequent updates which unnecessarily change the UI layout lead to a frustrating user experience. The settings bar would move from the left to the right for no reason other than…to be different, I guess? This really messes with the muscle memory and I absolutely despise such changes. Reddit’s stance on 3rd party apps is wrong and I condone Reddit’s behaviour. They’ve lied and disrespected 3rd party app developers and it’s shameful what this company has resorted to. Make your app better and incorporate the hundreds of features that 3rd party apps can do before going after them and then maybe, just maybe, I’ll give you an extra star on this review.

Recent api changes. Reddit has made a very bad decision by disabling api access. Many subreddits rely on api access for moderation and function. Third party apps are getting killed too. The official app’s performance is very poor and has too many bugs and glitches and not enough functions. You can’t even format text properly and have to go back and edit your comment. Pretty much all bots are gone now, except for the ones that flood subreddits with explicit content. And now the moderators can’t even do anything about it. This is the equivalent of google not only limiting access to their website through google chrome only, but also disabling all extensions and modifications, unless the extension developers pay google $20 million per year. I really hope they revert these changes because if they don’t I think the whole site will just die.

Riddled with ads and soulless too. Coming from a reddit user of over 10 years, reddit took over alien blue and turned it into this monstrosity. The app has useless promoted content suggestions that cannot be opted out and the navigation is more akin to TikTok than one you actually drive for the content you want to see yourself. Suggestions to the devs have fallen on deaf ears and their focus is only to monetise and collect data from users. Was a reddit premium user but the constant tone deaf feedback (or lack of it) means that this app and the platform will slowly die on a hill for a platform that solely relies on grass roots content generation. The new API changes for third party developers takes the icing on the cake. This reddit app was purely used for new chat purposes (what’s with that? There’s DM, chat and new chat) and now they’re forcing third parties to funnel to their app. No thank you.

New “feature” is infuriating. Devs, this new “feature” that has the “Add a comment” bar at the bottom of your screen whenever browsing the comments section is INFURIATING. The amount of times I accidentally click it is obscene. It was so much better before where the bar was shown only when you swiped down, rather than it being there all the time. Please revert this back or at least give users the option to not have it there permanently. Review will change to a higher rating when this is fixed Edit: change has still not been fixed but have updated star rating because reddit is great

Used to be great. Honestly just take this app around the back and end it’s misery. It’s crazy slow, the video player is a joke, it force closes every day, you got rid of the news tab, and on top of all that you somehow make it worse with every update. Pressing on the comments box shouldn’t full screen the video where I have to press the comments box again, and then swipe on a tiny little bar to minimise the now half screen video. So help you if you forget to mute the video before doing that too, as it’ll play on repeat while reading the comments. You care more about getting new accounts with a fresh, but not necessarily better, format. Well guess what happens when those teenyboppers grow up? Take a look at Facebook for an example. I would know, I was one of them. /rant Edit: and now they’ve replaced your subreddit list and added an ‘explore’ tab. If I wanted a tik tok clone I’d just download tik tok. You’re destroying the well-being of your user base.

I love you reddit!!. After deleting Facebook their was a void in my life, constantly refreshing news sites and endless scrolling of instagram just could never make quite the impact that I so desperately needed, then, I stumbled across reddit, it’s not as popular in my country as it is in the states, but after using it I can’t seem to figure out why! I am in love with the community, and I feel more informed about social and current events both national and international, minus all of the drama, complaining and censorship that has been riddling Facebook for the last couple of years. Thank you reddit, you give me the hit every internet junkie is looking for, you got me hooked!

Moderators problem abuse their power. You get banned for no reason or minor issues they are not being fair, use their power to do whatever they want remove your post mute you if they don’t like it. Super unreasonable. These moderators are crazy they need to be sent to the mental initiation for a reality check. They refuse to communicate with you cause they hold power against you. They are biased and hold grudges suddenly accuse you your post from months ago too make up nonsense excuse to remove or ban because they are offended when you speak up. Absolute terrible. I do get some good advice from other users, however, the politics need to change, the app isn’t good, and I fully agree with some other reviews on here that pointed out the same issue I said.

Love everything but one thing. I’m a massive fan of Reddit and spend nearly every day logged on and browsing content. The layout is great and it’s easy to navigate. My only issue is that videos don’t have sound unless the link directs you away from Reddit. It’s incredibly annoying to have to copy the link and past it to a browser on my phone any time I want to watch a video with audio. If they can fix this issue soon I’d be happy.

10/10. Reddit... I have no words. It's amazing. Users anywhere and everywhere are able to post, vote and comment. I always laugh when I'm on reddit! I truly thing it's one of the best platforms ever! There's honestly nothing wrong with it! I've been reading negative reviews for a single reason which consists of the new notification feature! It is easily disabled in settings on the app. If you can't find it, one single Google search will show you how to disable the notifications. There's really no reason for all these negative reviews!

Your glitches annoy me. So many glitches in the chat function To name a few it won’t let me scroll down and it does this weird shuffle thing. Why? Just let me scroll normally please? Whenever I get a reply to my comment I click on the pop up at the top of my screen notifying me, to take me to the comment, and it’s not there. WHY. And I have to go back and go to notifications, click on it again to see it. If it’s there long enough to notify me that somethings there, why is nothing there when I click on the thing, notifying me, that somethings there. Stupid And now my rate feature is gone. It’s there for my own profile but for some reason it’s not there anymore. Why is this gone? What kind of imperfection in your software can cause a feature like this to disappear ? So annoying. And everything is a gif why can’t I have sound. Just give me sound. It’s not a gif it’s a video with no sound. Why would I wanna watch that

Can I add another star?. Reddit is such an amazing app, filled with amazing people! (Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of terrible people, but we usher them away into a corner.) Reddit feels like one big family reunion where everyone’s talking about different stuff, like you can go over to the gay aunts and uncles in one section and talk about LGBTQ+ stuff, then go talk to the Zoomers in another section and talk about memes! There’s so many different types of people, it’s actually kinda crazy... Everything is here, literally! Think of anything and it probably exists! So come on in, you’re not late to the party, we’re only getting started! ^^ Have a great day/night and thanks for reading, I hope this encourages you to join our family, if so we welcome you with open arms!

The front page of the internet. Reddit is called "the front page of the internet" for a reason - a global online community connecting people through issues, topics, interests, news, hobbies, films, TV, music and much more An interesting phenomenon that is a contemporary incarnation of Usenet - the text based forums from the early days of the internet. Reddit has something for everyone.

Great!. My only complaint is the fact that I can neither see or write in the comments when the post is a video. It just brings the video up full screen and refuses to show anything to do with the comments. When it’s a picture, the comments work as they should. Would be lovely to fix this glitch, as it is highly annoying. Thanks

A place for the wise and their sheep. Absolutely love the unique dynamic of reddit, The first person to write the best comment gets praised and then more join the band wagon to farm a somewhat imaginary form of social (cyber) status. Get a unique customisable mini you, and everyone is most often genuine and interesting. You feel somewhat achieved on here when you create a post, and actually receive praise or criticisms. On other social media or reality often someone will criticises you for a negative reason, within reddit it is often genuine insight insight, and if you disagree with their point you can usually have a decent debate without issues of creating a toxic environment. There is just a dynamic freedom within reddit that no other interactive media site have been able to replicate. Incognito from reality whilst staying plugged in.

Inspiring as!. As this is only my second day using this app, I find it useful, as it can help me find questions to reality. I also like answering questions too! There is so much to explore. You can post things of your own, write questions, find answers! I would really like to see some more updates in the future, but for now they are really great! My advice is to keep the app updated as much as you could. Thank you for reading.

A saga of disappointment. While this app looks nice, it lacks so many great features from Alien Blue. At this point it's just not worth getting. Devs, please keep supporting Alien Blue, at least until this app is almost the same. Until then I'm going to stick with AB until this app is either on par with it or it stops working (Please keep supporting it). The above was written many years ago. Since then, the official reddit app has not improved in the slightest, becoming a masterclass in what to avoid in UI design and devolving into an ad filled mess. I would not be surprised to see the further tik-tokification of the platform go into overdrive with the recent events regarding third party apps being shut down. These third party apps (specifically Apollo) have provided an outstanding platform to browse reddit on, with clean UI, fast response, no ads, moderator functionality and excellent community engagement. The official reddit app is genuinely worse than browsing the website in safari. On June 30 the third party apps will disappear, and I would recommend getting a taste of what you have been and will miss out on in the future by using this absolute garbage software.

Horror Experience at Bellagio. Bellagio has been the worst experience. There is no complimentary service incl water or consierge downstairs. You have to wait for hours to get checked in and the whole process is conducted without any smile or desire to make you welcome. The whole hotel aim is to squeeze as much money out of you as possible. Smoke and mad crowds sitting in front of poker machines fill the whole downstairs area. The pool is overcrowded and closes early. In the room the fridge is full of their own overpriced beverages and alcohol and it took us 2 days fight to get the alcohol removed. Everywhere are sensors and you can’t move things from these shelves without them charging the credit card. The room wasn’t cleaned on daily bases. On top of that they failed to follow the protocol and didn’t check the TV between stays. Without any evidence nor contacting us they just claimed we broke it and charged over $2000 AUD for it.

Is called a reddit hole. Be careful you can lose an hour easy. It can be super helpful if you have issues - you can find support or different ways to look at things or approaches to try and you can find out that you’re not alone. And it’s great to be anonymous. That’s probably the most powerful opportunity. But there’s just general mindless entertainment and hobby stuff and special interest opportunities too. There’s a few trolls but it’s not too big of a deal. You can report then if you can be bothered. You will be misunderstood but you can handle it. Careful of that reddit hole.

Server Error. My thoughts on Reddit have been rather positive until today. I comment or post like I usually would with no issues until now. I have been logged out & unable to log back into my account, not being able to create a new account either. The issue that keeps popping up is a “server error” & to “try again later”. I’ve deleted the app, re-downloaded it & I’ve restarted my phone. I’ve tried to log in online since the app isn’t allowing me to & even there it’s saying “server error, try again later” You guys need to fix this bug, I’m afraid I’ve lost my account to this so please fix it.

disgusting. this app is disgusting , child pornography is not it , my daughter is on this app and she is only 14 this app should be deleted and banned , it is illegal and disgusting to see my daughter up there for thousands of grown men around the world to see , reddit needs to be shut down for good!!!!!! This is not right , and it truely disturbs me on the amount of videos and photos I have come across with other girls and guys doing things that aren’t appropriate for people… this app needs to be deleted and banned because I would not want my daughter to be stalked and watched because of something other people seen on this app , it’s truely disgraceful where this world has come to , delete this app or there will be consequences, stay safe y’all 😚

Not an original thought.. Reddit Inc once again showing their employees don’t have any idea what reddit is, that they don’t employ any UX engineers / designers and instead just try to clone the latest craze app into their own. This months update brings us the TikTok interface to navigating posts that have videos. Who needed to see comments anyway? Now all videos loop and the entire post is just a single button to open the video in full screen. If you try to swipe it away it just shows a different video instead. No more reading or engaging on reddit. Just blindly consume never ending videos instead because that’s apparently popular now.

Oh god what have I done?. This app might seem fine on the outside but please god don’t be fooled. It starts with the funny cats and dog videos, then to the funny jokes and videos, then to some harmless memes, and then the next thing you know, you’ve been jerking your manly third leg at some sounding (don’t look that up) or some weird human-animal anime hybrid and you haven’t touched grass in two years! Don’t be foolish. Just stick to the pewdiepie and jacksepticeye videos related to Reddit and continue browsing tic tok! This is not a joke, it’s a warning. Don’t be like me. Don’t be like us. It’s too late for us, it’s not for you. Also don’t go to 4 chan that’s MUCH worse.

Very good, but moderators hold way too much power, and hidden messages keep reappearing. As the title says, you speak against the status quo on a number of subreddits (r/worldpolitics for example) and you get a permaban. You don’t have to be rude or obnoxious, left, middle, right, or anything, and you get banned. You just have to comment against their personal view and your whole freedom to participate in the subreddit is taken away with no warnings or anything. Freedom of speech and impartiality aren’t really valued by moderators, meaning every comment on their subreddit aligns with their values. This heavily influences all reddit users opinions that read the comments as they don’t get a full range of opinions. As a US based company, reddit needs to be more open and free, a platform that resembles a democracy and not an autocracy. They hold too much power with no consequence. Also whenever I delete a previous conversation by pressing “hide”, it just re appears the next time I open the app. Really annoying. All message requests also reappear after pressing “ignore”. Serious glitch here that seems to have been going on for a couple of months now as per previous queries raised about it on r/reddit.

reddit does not care about its users. killing 3rd party apps is nothing but an exercise of corporate greed and an absolute disregard for this website's users. the users are the heart and soul of reddit and literally the reason reddit can make profits at all. increasing your API request pricing sends a loud and clear message than you do not care about your moderators (who keep your site running for free) or anybody with disability who requires an accessible format to engage with content on reddit. (and don't pretend the reddit app is equipped to accomodate blind people in its current state..) this is a pathetic cash grab and until reddit decides to change, this will remain a cruel reminder that this company cares about monopolising its niche for maximum profits with no regard for how that affects the users that let reddit profit in the first place.

Not user friendly. First time user. I’ve had an account for 20 minutes. I made an account thinking I could quickly get a question answered about a video I have. Very disappointed. I can’t post my video in the big communities. The small communities allow me to post my video but they are dead. I found a large community in which I could post the link to the video I posted in the smaller community, but moderators removed my post because supposedly it is a question and does not belong there. Mods suggested another community for me to post my question, but this community does not allow me to post links or videos... absolute waste of time.

Good BUT. I love this app for the adult content but there’s a few issues -It’s easier to find posts on reddit through google search then reddit search -adult videos don’t have sound -page won’t refresh sometimes -to use grid view I have to refresh first -custom feeds are basically gone But you can find them if you save the link to your notes -no grid view on saved posts -comments can string on and on and on, without an option to “read more” it just has literally every comment open already… -Isn’t this website a huge mainstream social media? Disgraceful honestly.

I love the app, here are some suggestions. I love reddit, the layout is great the content is as good as the internet can provide and the service is great. However I believe we should be able to get an in app NSFW button and an in app section to show us what email we are using, or at least a setting to change it in app. Recently I have had trouble and been in need of this as I have forgotten what one of my three main emails my account is linked to, and in the future I would like to be able to change it in app. this is a small thing but, because I have forgotten my password I can not log into the desktop site and enable nsfw. This has degraded my experience and made it a lot more of a hassle to use reddit and change my preference of nsfw items, thanks.

What a shame. I love reddit, I spend inordinate a Libra of time daily there. Well I did. The new app is full of poor choices that seem to have been done to transform it into TikTok. The video player is now broken, scrolling through casually is broken, reading comments on videos broken. Can’t even pause a video while scrolling. The whole design is just not user friendly now. Then the annoying notifications to join subs or to like posts whenever you purposely didn’t in the first place. Disappointing that Reddit didn’t listen or engage their users. I use Reddit because I expect more, expect better than other social networks. There has not been one single post about liking the updates. Go check out r/redditmobile.

Save 3rd Party apps.. Lots of subreddits are going dark from June 12th to June 14th. To support the cause of saving the 3rd party apps (Such as Apollo), join the protest. Edit: The blackout has ended, but the protest will not. Reddit is closing off certain services, (ie. The 3rd party apps) which means that many people, including people with disabilities cannot browse reddit as these features are not available on the native reddit app. Because of the API changes and costs towards the third party apps, an announcement has been made that one of, if not the most popular 3rd party reddit apps, Apollo will be shutting down. Join r/Save3rdPartyApps and join the cause. We cannot let this go any further.

Your Moderators Need to remain neutral. I love Reddit...BUT !! your Moderators are the worst. I am hoping someone will look into this as it's really killing your user base and there ability to speak from a left right or even a neutral standpoint. They take things personally and clearly target you if you offend them (which is easily done) Internal politics, bias targeting and threats to ban you for something minor and unintentional is a big downfall in any company, community or social platform. You end up feeling like your treading on eggshells afraid that you will offend a moderator. Some of your Moderators need to be taken down a peg or two as it's clear the power they have been given has gone to their heads. Aside from all the above Reddit to me is the best social platform, just needs to check those dudes (and dude-ets) a little more often. ✌️

Great app. Perfect navigation.. This app is so good it almost ruined desktop reddit for me. The swipe navigation on this app is pretty much perfect. All apps should just navigate the same way this one does. Apart from that, it's solid, bug free, and has enough flexibility to work for me. Just a word of warning though- I'd turn off auto play Vids/gifs when on mobile data though. This app chews through data when that's turned on.

Use Apollo. You killed alienblue, are suffocating 3PA, and destroying everything that makes this website unique. Your greed and hubris have blinded you to the fact that your users are your product. Without them all you have is a disgusting UI and companies role playing as users to astroturf. Your entire business model is built on unashamedly stealing content from other websites and yet you have the audacity to lambast 3PA for daring to profit for creating apps that provide critical features you’ve been too inept to deliver for years. The hypocrisy of it all would be funny if it weren’t so obvious you’re too stupid to recognise it, glaring as it may be. To spit in the face of the moderators that toil endless hours for free to make communities thrive by calling them landed gentry shows how far you are removed from any reason. Without Apollo reddit is dead to me. I would rather lose the site altogether then ever use this pathetic excuse for an app. I’ll only return to watch wallstreetbets put your IPO in the hellfire where it belongs. - 10y account

Nice. Reddit is an app where you can find a subreddit (like a small section of the app) that suits you. E.G. : Memes, Politics, Humour, public freakouts, casual conversations. The only problems I have in my opinion is while subreddits are entitled to their views I have seen a few particular subs ONLY delete hate comments to a certain group of people (E.G. “Religious People Should Die”... “Black people deserve what they have” etc.) when the post makes the front page. I am also severely annoyed at the excessive amount of notifications this app gives. I would turn them off but then I would also be blocking notifications from people who reply to me. Notifications like “Trending in this subreddit is (post I’m not interested in)” Overall a much safer place than most social media as long as you stay away from subreddits that show hate (and for some reason are not deleted though they break reddit TOS).

Here, but not by choice. Reddit Inc. should be ashamed of the way they’ve treated third-party developers. This app is a poor substitute. I don’t mind the presence of ads (I was fine with them in third-party apps as well, but I guess you weren’t), but the way they’re integrated here is bad. A banner ad would be far more tasteful and less confusing that the native nonsense that goes on right now. The compact view is less compact that narwhal, meaning I see less posts at a time. There’s only two things I can say the official app does right - it lets me set favourites, and it supports swiping for back navigation. These are not high bars to cross! I will never understand why your company, and Twitter, despise third-party developers so much. Their impressive work should *inspire* you to do better, not feel threatened that your non-existent monopoly should be enforced no matter what. This is petty, and I will never view this app with the same gratitude and appreciation I showed to my clients of choice. My mobile usage of Reddit, as a result, will decrease. Do better.

Glitch galore. Reddit is great, but the app is not. I have had glitches all the time, it’s a complete nuisance. The main one is my profile, it often zeroes out everything and says that it can’t load. So I can’t find my old posts and comments. The karma and Reddit age both go to zero. Also! I posted something that has completely disappeared. Please fix the glitches on the iOS app.

New "buy coins" logo is gross.. The app as a whole is okay. Buggy with weird design choices but it was the first reddit app I used so I'm too used to it to change. However, as the company continues to come up with ways to monetise it gets worse and worse. First it was ads that you had to pay a subscribtion to remove. Then it was adding a million different ways to reward users with useless icons that cost actual money and in most cases offer nothing. The latest update added a big coin logo at the top of the front page next to the search bar just so you never forget that you can spend money to buy absolutely pointless "coins". Hilariously the icon is bigger than any of the reward icons actual posts get. And unlike regular reddit ads this icon begging you to spend money doesn't go away when you have gold. The glory days of Reddit are long behind us. That's reality. Every knew decision the company makes seems to be anti consumer however which leads me to believe that the platform won't plateau at mediocre, it will nose dive itself into becoming indistinguishable from any other social media platform.

The app itself is great. I use reddit a lot, whenever I get bored, it’s community sometimes isn’t very good but you gotta learn how to avoid them, it’s actual app is good to use I don’t really notice any problems when using it, though it would be nice if at the submit section of making a post they could make a small image editor so you can make a title or edits to the image to make posting a little easier. Overall though it’s good

Bugs bugs bugs. With every update it gets buggier. I used to love this app, now as I’m scrolling, half of a previous post I was looking at will pop up on top of another post. The new comment format doesn’t work half the time (don’t know why it needed to be changed), entire comment threads will disappear or I won’t be able to scroll down without it springing back to the top comment. Sometimes I can’t even click the button to see the comments. I’m not on an old phone, my iOS is up to date - I don’t understand why it’s getting worse, shouldn’t it be getting better?

Great with problems. The website is great the format is simple and easy to understand and it’s a good idea to have different places for different conversations but the mods are kinda dumb, I got banned for writing a harmful comment when the post itself is more harmful than my comment and there’s no way to get unbanned unless it was a mistake witch it stupid since you could have committed something years ago and get banned for it when you wrote it when you were a dumb teen this is only one of the many other dumb things that the I see the mods doing.

Censorship. This app use to be the best part of my day , it’s now a absolutely joke , the admins are power hungry ban machines.

Not great for how long it has been around. This app is 9 or 10 years old and is still missing some basic features. - personal home page with the subs (communities) the user has in their list. - proper text edit when commenting - access to the community sidebar and rules Just to name a few.

Deserves 0 stars. Apollo is 100x better than this piece of garbage

Terrible app without a focus on users. I’ve had to delete my Reddit app today, it is garbage. It’s readability and functionality is poor. It drives ads and reddits own function like surveys like no tomorrow. 3rd party apps were the only way to read reddit in a protected and functional manner. When 3rd party apps are taken offline, is when I quit Reddit forever.

Worst Reddit App. Much better off with a well made Reddit client. There are many good options.

Brainwashed. Almost every user is brainwashed in one way or another. Looking through reddit is just seeing a multitude of hive minds.

Fire those people who work in the appeals department.. My account was permanently suspended without a given reason, and when I sent an appeal, all my alt accounts were permanently suspended as well. I made a new account only to find it banned as well and I didn’t even post yet. So I got banned without a given reason, ask politely for an appeal and receive an IP ban as a result. What is this logic? I use Reddit for homework and French help and I was actually doing better in French because of it. All I ask for is an account I can use for homework purposes and apparently that’s too much to ask for. And that person who decided to ban me is a sad, sad excuse for a human.

Anti-woman website. Reddit hosts disgusting pornography of actual women getting raped and subreddits glorifying the rape snd murder of girls and women. Subs that have complained about this have been banned. Women-centered communities are banned left and right for dome sick reason too. Stay away from this app/site if you're a woman.

Poor wanna be app. Poor interface, wrought with spam and advertising. Cannot even stop the only fans porn related user requests. Will be soon deleting Reddit once Apollo goes dark.

Reddit Censorship. Reddit has removed a lot of subreddits that don’t fit into the main stream political ideology. Complete censorship, good bye Reddit!

Terrible. The app has not gotten better and instead of using competition to be better they simply shut down competitor apps. So disappointing

App sucks, CEO sucks, Apollo is way better. Absolutely horrible way to handle 3rd party apps, wish management would be better… site is supported by unpaid volunteers. 3rd party apps allowed a better experience for users and moderators, yet selfish Reddit CEO tries to inflate his app by lying about other developers, and killing their apps, just so he can IPO, whole killing the golden egg laying goose. /u/spez can gargle marbles

Best app ever. This app is better than Facebook and Instagram, I assure you. Say goodbye to all your free time though.

money hungry. the new pricing of the api for third party apps really shows their true colors. They make up scandalous lies about people who bring them business and revenue.

Doesn’t comply with Apple TOS for screen reading. Not that great of an app compared to the third party ones that are about to get nuked thanks to spez being greedy.

Well. App incites violence and hatred against women, and bans any womens discussions subs, from men-free feminist discussions to subs against domestic violence or subs supporting single moms.

Zero customization. What is with default apps and their in ability to understand their users wants? July 1, 2023 will be a sad day for sure.

Bloatware on iOS. Beware.. Tons of unnecessary ads, storage space and network usage behind the scenes. Although it’s an official app, I do not suggest using this app to access Reddit.

Mods & SuperMods. The community has been complaining about the terrible work lead by mods and even more so the “power mods”. Reddit is the next Tumblr. Don’t partake in something you disagree with. This is your voting power.

If this is the only option I’m not using Reddit anymore. Apollo was the best of the best Reddit clients out there, and Reddit has out of nowhere started to charge an obscene amount of money (around $20 million per year!) for developers to create third party applications. Obviously, this is unaffordable, and is a thinly veiled way to kill off 3rd party apps entirely. Out of all the social media apps I’ve used, this is by far the worst one. It’s terribly buggy, spams notifications about posts that aren’t even relevant to any subreddits I’ve joined, and is just generally a chore to use. It feels like an app designed by people who don’t really use Reddit. In addition, the moderation tools are abysmal, and they have put basically zero effort into accessibility for people who are visually impaired (which Apollo was amazing for). I sincerely hope Reddit reverses their decision to essentially ban 3rd party apps. If this is the only option, I’ll just leave Reddit entirely.

Not like Apollo. Title: Disappointing Experience with the "Reddit" App: A Review Rating: ★☆☆☆☆ As an avid user of social media apps, I recently had the unfortunate experience of using the "Reddit" app. I must say, it left me extremely disappointed and frustrated. Comparatively, the alternative app, "Apollo," offers a far superior user experience and has no ads, making it a more appealing choice for anyone seeking a seamless social media experience. First and foremost, the "Reddit" app seems determined to stifle competition by attempting to shut down "Apollo." This monopolistic behavior raises concerns about the fair and open nature of the social media landscape. It is disheartening to witness such actions from a platform that should prioritize user choice and healthy competition. Moreover, the "Reddit" app falls woefully short when it comes to user experience. Navigating through its cluttered interface feels like stumbling through a maze, with an overwhelming number of tabs, menus, and subreddits that make finding relevant content a tedious task. In contrast, "Apollo" offers a sleek and intuitive design that enhances usability and makes it a breeze to discover and engage with communities of interest. One of the most frustrating aspects of the "Reddit" app is the excessive presence of advertisements. They pop up incessantly, interrupting the user experience and making it difficult to focus on the content. It's clear that monetization takes precedence over user satisfaction. In contrast, "Apollo" respects its users by providing an ad-free environment, allowing for uninterrupted browsing and engagement. Furthermore, the frequency of updates on the "Reddit" app is disappointingly lackluster. It seems that the development team is not fully committed to addressing user feedback and improving the app's functionality. On the other hand, "Apollo" consistently pushes updates, introducing new features, resolving bugs, and listening to user suggestions. This commitment to improvement sets "Apollo" apart as a platform that genuinely values its users. In conclusion, I cannot recommend the "Reddit" app due to its poor user experience, intrusive ads, and questionable tactics in attempting to suppress competition. I urge users to consider "Apollo" as an alternative that offers a superior social media experience, free of ads, with frequent updates that cater to user needs. Don't settle for mediocrity when a more refined and user-friendly option is readily available.

Terrible. Reddit sucks and is nothing but a far left echo chamber. They have recently deleted 2000 communities for wrongthink. This is unbelievable censorship of free speech that is occurring

Great app. Great app, no complaints except they really don't need the notifications in the lock screen.

Terrible app. 👎

Censorship. Reddit deletes subreddits focused on feminism and women’s rights, but allows subreddits about rape fantasies? No thanks

Garbage App. Maybe if you’ve never used an app before you would think it is acceptable. The user interface is trash. Cluttered screens and unintuitive navigation. Be ready to see just 2 posts relevant to the subject you are there to see between all of the ads and suggested links. I hope I never come across whatever site/app they took inspiration from.

No thanks. Unacceptable. The rise in API costs has essentially killed third-party apps, some of which were much loved by the community and a lifeline for disabled users. Add to that a swarm of bugs and glitches, Reddit has moved from being user-friendly to an inaccessible, bug-ridden disaster. Greed over accessibility, not cool.

No moderation. I am constantly being posted to really gross and degrading forums that have resulted in me getting messages of people wanting to “assault “ me, there is no where to report these posts or the comments that give out my personal information. A really gross app with no regard to the impacts that having no posting restrictions have. Do better.

Reddit No More. I am a long time Reddit user. It used to be great. But soon I will leave Reddit because of recent change in Reddit policy. I cannot support the “If you can’t win, just kill your competition.” approach.

REDDIT. my mom said that if she catches me on Reddit she’ll swipe my head against my keyboard but I don’t care it’s really funny gljgjfvjchdhhdhfhfhfvhdhfhdjvjchvuvizyyryfrttr5t5t5ttrh(GGhFf(GFggGgGGgfysF6373),??&.?

Anti-developer is anti-consumer. The move to price an absurd amount to their API is no more than just a cash grab. With the direct consequence of phasing out third party apps, apps that brought the reddit name to where it is. A move to gate-keep and stifle innovation will be the burning bridge that Reddit won’t be able to get back. Please listen to the developers and be fair!

Apollo is better. Shame on Reddit.. Thank you for greedily pushing out the only option to make your service usable. Account will be deleted come June 30th & I’m hoping others follow suit.

Bugs. Buggy app always freezing + is owned by an anticompetitive company preventing better reddit apps.

Significantly worse than any of the third-party options. They’re killing third-party apps because they want a better valuation for an IPO, but their official app has a horribly unintuitive UI and it’s riddled with useless ads, tracking, and “suggestions” that make actually reading or contributing a horrible experience.

Subreddit searching seems to be broken. If you're searching for a subreddit that you know exists, for whatever reason the search function won't find it but will show other results which have similar names.

CRASH PROBLEM. the app doesnt work ! crashes every 30seconds to a minute. my favourite app but man fix the crashing bug

Video player. This video player is terrible, why is there no option to revert to the previous style.

Terrible app. How they manage to be this terrible and buggy while solo third party devs do a much better job is baffling. No wonder Reddit feels it’s necessary to make it impossible for 3rd party apps to continue.

terrible buggy app. whats wrong with this garbage app? constantly gets stuck on a page then occasionally crashes. Absolutely trash of an app

Reddit hates and censors women. Reddit will allow rape subreddits but not subreddits for critical thinking related to women’s rights. Sadly, reddit is anti-free speech and pro-misogyny. Reddit bizarrely lumps critical leftist feminist thought in with extreme racism and fascism. Reddit moderators who delete critical thinking subreddits that discuss women’s rights compassionately and polite are disturbingly biased and admit to it. I am extremely disappointed with reddit. One day, this will all be realized as the shameful, pathetic nonsense it truly is. Until then, reddit is an utter disgrace.

Unfriendly to Developers. Reddit has a clear effort to remove third party integration by directly hiking the API costs to an unrealistic and misguided levels. Do not support this company- there are other ways to pass free time then to support a company which destroys livelihoods.

Spam popup asking me to upvote. Theres is a new feature asking you to upvote every time you read a post. Dumb and annoying, if I want to upvote it I’m a big boy I’ll upvote it.

Reddit Sileneces Women and Uplifts Abusive Males. A recent wave of subreddit bans has targeted women’s subreddits that sought to counter act damaging parts of the patriarchy such as pornography and calling out subreddits that are 100% based around hating females. Though many feminist subreddits have faced the chop, many pornography subreddits that have rape and violence against women remain. Reddit’s priorities are transparent and blatantly sexist.

This app is why I wouldn’t invest in Reddit’s IPO. They’ve actively been making it worse. They removed sorting options, they keep breaking the video player, it doesn’t have necessary functionality for moderators and on and on. I get it, they need to sell ads and drive engagement in order to make money. I don’t think any of the changes actually help with that, though. Ads and recommendations are poorly targeted at best, and users have little control over what they see. I mean, I keep getting crypto ads because I’m on a sub that makes fun of it. Recommended posts are even worse. Now there’s some nagware telling you to share a post instead of taking a screenshot. Which you can’t turn off. Just let us take the damn screenshot, okay? All this is a symptom of bad management. Development of this app is a dumpster fire. Reddit doesn’t understand its own platform or user base, as you can see when they mismanage nearly every crisis. Currently they’re mishandling a revolt among power users and moderators over the decision to kill off third party apps which frankly work better than this app. Tl;dr: the app sucks and Reddit management is terrible.

Stop ruining Reddit. I don’t normally leave reviews but these recent app changes have been so unpleasant I’m considering leaving Reddit as a whole. I have no idea why your design team is so out to ruin the experience of the mobile app, it is not intuitive, not easy to use and overall unpleasant. Get it together

App is decent. I love Reddit but the app could probably have better UI and enhanced features to better utilize mobile. Overall, it's still a good app.

Reddit hates women. Reddit banned peaceful conversations of women discussing violence against them while keeping literal RAPE SUBREDDITS open

Terrible App. This is by far the worst app for Reddit and with the new API changes going forward this will be the only app available, and unfortunately I’ll have to stop using Reddit because this app is unusable.

Oh reddit, you messed up. If you don’t know about it already, google the API changes then delete the app. Greedy company removed all of the (better) third party sites and has made moderation worse by an order of magnitude.

👉 Are you looking for an Adsense alternative advertising platform?

Adsterra is the most preferred ad network for those looking for an alternative to AdSense. Adsterra is the ideal choice for new sites with low daily traffic. In order to advertise on the site in Adsterra, like other ad networks, a certain traffic limit, domain age, etc. is required. There are no strict rules. Sign up!

Absolutely hate the new feed experiment. They are supposedly running an experiment on your home feed. Some users are effected by this, some aren’t. They are no longer display posts from all the subs i follow in chronological order. They are running an algorithm that is picking what it wants to show you—and there’s no way to change it to Top, New, Hot, etc etc. I’m missing a lot of content now. Before in chronological order i felt like i saw *everything* now with this new algorithm i feel like i see 60% of the content. I see repeating posts nearly all day. I thought it was spam posters at first but then i realized it was just Reddits algorithm really wanting me to interact with that post for some reason. I hate it lol. Please go back to chronological order and give us the option to organize by hot, new, etc pleaaassseeeeee. Besides that, i really love the app. It works great, and does what i need it to.

Screw the Users. Over the last few years, Reddit has been destroying countless features and changing user interface making it more and more inaccessible and irritating to the users. Now they are destroying third party apps so that this app is used more and they have more power over the user base. This is still ignoring the fact that by banning third party apps, they are actively blocking people with disabilities and impairments from using Reddit. It has never been cleared that Reddit and u/spez (The Reddit CEO) don’t think of their users as people, but as assets. I used to love Reddit, but I have been watching it be destroyed for the last few years in disbelief, but I can’t do this anymore. If anyone reading this thinks Reddit won’t go further than it has, you are wrong. Now that people are forced to use their app, there is nothing stopping them from adjusting it to milk as much money out of its “assets” as possible. Goodbye Reddit, you apathetic void of disparity.

Toxic moderators ruin the experience of Reddit. There are some great communities on Reddit and I like the idea behind it. However, if you share an opposing view in any political sub or one that deals with a sensitive social topic to initiate civil discussion you will be banned from that sub, even if you followed the subs rules to a T it doesn’t matter, and it doesn’t matter how respectful you are. These moderators also have a tendency to mute you for 28 days so that you’re unable to appeal or request further information regarding your ban, it’s incredibly childish. Unfortunately Reddit is an echo chamber for like-minded individuals, particularly for those that consider themselves progressive or lean to the Left. You will also be downvoted into oblivion and accused of being “Far-Right” or a “Trump supporter” for not following along with the herd, there is no having a civil discussion on this platform or sharing your opinion. Basically, those individuals can say what they want free of consequence including name calling or harassment. Ultimately after a couple of years of using Reddit I deleted my account, if subs can be moderated by adults in a respectful manner I’d consider rejoining.

I love Reddit but there is a HUGE bug that has to be fixed. Reddit is cool for when you just want to chill and go to your favorite communities and meet people who have your same interests, but there is a problem. In some if not all of the communities it says I can’t post images. Now before you say, “some communities don’t allow images” in the subreddit I was in it LITERALLY had a flair titled “IMAGES” I even scrolled through and saw people posting images left and right but on mine it says it’s not allowed. I closed out the app, logged out, reseted my entire fricking iPad, and it still wouldn’t let me. I found out by doing some digging that it isn’t just me who is having this problem. This has to be fixed because I can’t even enjoy the app anymore. I always love posted OC art on subreddits but now I can’t. I spent 5 days making art for r/Pokémon for nothing due to this bug. Please fix it.

Don’t Use This App. I’ve been using Apollo for years now and it was genuinely one of the best apps I’ve ever used on iOS. I loved the simple, responsive and intuitive UI, as well as all of its features. Recently, the Reddit corporate team has decided to kill all 3rd party apps with their ridiculous API pricing. These 3rd party apps include Apollo, RIF, Narwhal and others. All of these apps had many dedicated users who loved using them to post, moderate and comment on Reddit. Despite this, Reddit got greedy and decided to kill them. In addition to this, the official Reddit app is actual garbage compared to 3rd party apps. It is full of ads, less intuitive and much slower. Instead of working with 3rd party app developers to either negotiate a reasonable price or improve their app, they choose to be selfish and spit in the face of their most dedicated users. To add further insult to injury, Reddit’s CEO decided to falsely accuse Apollo’s developer of blackmail in an attempt to make themselves look better. Fortunately, Apollo’s developer recorded their calls and posted the evidence to refute Reddit’s claims. If you’ve read to this point, I hope you understand that Reddit is purely profit-driven, anti-user garbage now. Do not support them by using their garbage app.

1 Star is still too generous. I was a day one Apollo user who immensely enjoyed the beautifully customized and tailored experience, who is now forced into using this abomination after they purposely destroyed all third party applications that helped them make it the popular website it is today. Reddit has abandoned all pretense of caring about their users experiences, they only care about money, and this was the latest of many garbage decisions company wide, all to try and benefit their upcoming IPO. This app is the dollar tree version of a competent product (like Apollo), it’s bloated, frequently experiences issues loading, it’s interface looks to have been designed randomly by covering a wall with bad ideas and playing pin the tail on the donkey to choose which features to roll forward with, and so many more poor decisions and “optimizations”. I’d say they should be ashamed, but you have to have a moral compass for that to mean anything, and they sold theirs to the highest bidder years ago. I wish them nothing but the worst on their IPO, and in the words of the Principal from Billy Madison “I award you no points, and may god have mercy on your soul.”

cannot switch from safari to app. often , i will be googling questions or whatnot when a reddit thread shows up. when i click on the link to reddit, a pop-up opens and i cannot view the post in safari because it tells me to read it in the app. there is no X out button, so i usually click the “go to app” option. despite having downloaded the app, it brings me to the app store. instead of the downloaded app icon, it says “OPEN.” when i click the “OPEN” button it just brings me to the general feed of the app instead of the post i was trying to read. it is very irritating, as i cannot even read the thread on safari because of the pop-up. this does not happen with any other app i’ve used (twitter, instagram, tumblr, facebook, etc.) all other apps bring me straight to the page i was looking at. additionally, in terms of notifications, i find it annoying that if i look at one thread from a subreddit i did not join, i am given daily notifications for new posts. the notifications from subreddits do not happen with ones that i DID join, and i’d like to be notified about those more than the ones that i just glanced at.

Put ‘Communities’ back where it was. Who’s idea was it to hide the ‘Communities’ tab behind a pop-out menu button? Now when I am browsing one of my favorited communities and I back out, I am sent back to the home page rather than the list of my communities to chose from. It just adds an extra step for no reason at all. While you’re at it get rid of the ever-present trending tags at the top of the home page. Leave that on the popular page, I will never click on it unless by accident. A couple other things: When I am scrolling through a user’s posts/comments, and I dare to try scrolling back up, the user’s bio and avatar dominates half the screen for no apparent reason, making it difficult to view the actual posts. Also, everyone’s ‘Cake Day’ date is displayed as a random date in late January of 2018 regardless of their actual date joining the platform. You might want to look into that.

Don’t give them your money or support them in any way. You might have heard of the whole Reddit API drama recently, but if you haven’t, just know it’s exactly as bad as everyone is making it out to be. The official Reddit app is, bar none, the worst social media or forum experience I have ever had. Constant ads, unwanted site promotions, incessant bugs, and poor quality control from a site as large and popular as Reddit is inexcusable. Here’s the kicker though, these issues were never the biggest deal since a plethora of free, well-coded third-party clients existed. Now Reddit themselves are deciding to drive their user base away in hopes of getting more suckers to spend money on awards and avatar customizations. I haven’t even mentioned the lack of accessibility the official client offers, it’s honestly so bad you just have to laugh. I can say with complete conviction that this app does not do a single thing right. If Reddit never bothered to improve their app when competition existed, just imagine how much worse it will become when they drive away everyone who put time in to this community they used to love. The people make Reddit what it is, not the other way around.

New UI is terrible - playback has audio issues. Hate the new UI that uses the Instagram reels / tik tok style for viewing media. It makes it so hard for reading comments; it constantly plays the videos while reading comments, pausing it while staying in the comments is this huge process. I liked the sound button better on the left hand side but I like that it has black behind because before the white sound button would disappear in videos with white background. Adding to my previous review and lowering my rating. The above has not been fixed, and lately if you open a video but don’t finish watching it, the audio will continue to play. Even if you are watching a new video, the audio from the previous post will continue to play. Even if you go into the post to pause it, it will then continue to play two instances of the same audio. You either have to wait for the video to finish or you have to restart the app. FIX THE PLAYBACK WITH THIS APP. There are so many third party apps I’m about to switch to a different one. This app used to be great and now it’s just getting so unusable

MODS have too much power and ban you for no reason.. Please all I want is my account restored! This is a message to the mods. Why? I have bipolar disorder. I apologize about my outburst the other day, I thought I was talking to a robot. Please can you guys restore my account. I’m not doing anything wrong. This is really affecting my mental health. My dog just died last week and my grandpa is in the hospital with COVID. I need Reddit as an outlet. Please I am begging you. I get the community engaged with my posts. Please, please, please as one human speaking to another human during a pandemic with the world in chaos mode can you please have some sympathy/empathy. I sincerely apologize to the MOD(s) I may have exchanged words with. I honestly just thought it was a robot. Please I ask you to restore my account. I have learned my lesson. I have just been getting frustrated that my posts keep getting removed with no explanation. I apologize for my actions. Can you guys please forgive me? Can we end this on good terms? I am a beginner streamer, I lost my Job during the pandemic a few months ago. This is all I want to do is contribute to this Reddit and continue to help it grow.

Why 4, and not 5.. The only reason I’m giving this a 4 star review, instead of a 5, is because of the not so seamless transition from Safari to the app. Let me explain. Whenever I come across a Reddit page in Safari that I like and it gives me the option to open it in the app, all it does is take me to Reddit’s page in the App Store, instead of opening that Reddit page in the actual Reddit app. This drives me crazy and seems like it should’ve been one of the first things fixed, and yet it still persists to this day! Now granted it might just be me getting old and not knowing how to use technology like the youngins’ haha. However, it seems to me that it simply shouldn’t be that difficult to open the app to the page you were viewing in safari. I don’t know if it’s just with apple products or if other smartphone users have the same problem, but that’s my reason for a 4 out of 5. Hope this helps in someway or another!

Confusing premise. Reddit seems like it doesn’t know what it wants to be. Is it a social media site where you can share posts with friends? Apparently not. They take their internet “karma” points so seriously that if you interact with the same posts and comments as your friends and family, Reddit will flag all of your accounts as voter manipulation. This especially occurs if the people are using the same wifi. Reddit has serious issues with revenge P, bullying, and misinformation, yet it appears in their agenda to go after small families with warnings and suspensions for upvoting the same comments. A website/company that goes after their small users for sharing posts with their immediate family is not one that I want to recommend to others. And, a company that cannot separate true vote manipulation - ie bots and software - from a family socializing and bonding over Reddit posts, is a site that needs to reevaluate whether it is a social site at all. They apparently desire to control people’s lives outside of the app and expect all users to remain anonymous even to their own family member’s accounts. So what kind of social media platform/forum is Reddit?

A huge thank you!. I have been a Redditor for a few years now and always look forward to updates on the app. I don’t usually use the computer so I appreciate any and all updates to mobile. My all-time FOREVER FAVORITE & also what coincidently brought me to Reddit in the first is No Sleep. For the longest time, I couldn’t subscribe to series with one click. I tried to read how to fix the problem and or do it manually but could not figure it out. I knew from web searches this wasn’t an isolated problem. It sucked that I had to save the story then login on the internet to subscribe. But just for old times sake I clicked “here” and it worked! I appreciate all the time and effort everyone puts in, even though most of Reddit only comments and complains about Reddit. I can’t afford to buy premium monthly but I do when I have extra spending money and love to give awards the few times I have. I wish it was a bit more cost-effective but other than that you have a fan/user for the life of this platform!

Video player. This app was really good for a long long time, but I’m not sure why the choice was made to change the video player? The new one doesn’t stay in the subreddit I’m in, and rarely even plays the videos I tap on. I understand making something similar to compete with other social media apps (via the scrolling down like Instagram or TikTok instead of scrolling to the side), but I don’t want to use those other apps, that’s why I used Reddit. As far as I am aware, there weren’t any problems with the old video player and it always worked perfectly when I used it, so why change it if it works well? Everything else in the app is great and flows well, but I’m really considering uninstalling because of this issue because I’ve lost one of the features of Reddit that drew me to the Reddit app. If I didn’t already like the app I’d rate it 1 star. If the video player stays the way it is, I’ll probably uninstall and use something I like less than Reddit, which makes me sad.

Reddit Rulez. Love Reddit so much I just wish it wasn’t blocked by a lot of Wi-Fi networks like my at my work. It’s guest Wi-Fi blocks Reddit with a firewall saying it has adult content smh. My boost network cell data hasn’t been working right ever since I got this new iPhone 11. Safari won’t load most of the time and Reddit always gives me the lil Reddit face with x’s as it’s eyes. Used to be blazing fast even when my 5g would run out I would still get unlimited 4g data with my old iPhone s. Someone stole it and so I was due for an upgrade so I got the iPhone 11 for a very low price. Yes it was opened and the lady said it was used for like a day until the lady brought it back because they couldn’t pay there bill so the store ended up with it on there shelf so she was able to give me a good deal I think it was 160 out the door everything else works fine like phone calls and texts but no FaceTime unless I’m at home on my own wifi.

Crashing and Performance issues. I am writing this after years of frustration with the is app. Want to scroll through a subreddit? Too bad, your device is going to run ridiculously slow after 25-30 posts. Want to close out of Reddit since it’s slow now? Well too bad, now all the other apps on your phone are slow until you close the app, if you even can with how unresponsive the phone becomes. And god forbid you actually want to see your feed and be able to swipe through. Say you select the 3rd post in your feed then start swiping, well first you’ll get post 3, then post 1 then post 2. If you click on say post 15 the same thing will happen, and you will need to swipe through all the previous 14 posts you had already seen to reach post 16. Like who designs an app that un user friendly. It seems kinda counter intuitive for them to make the app so bad it’s difficult to use, if forcing me to use my computer will just make me use an ad blocker. Do better Reddit, there are literally no other apps on my phone that function this poorly or drag the performance of my entire phone down so significantly

Bad moderator and banning policy. Arbitrary and capricious moderators will be the downfall of Reddit. Reddit policy is, anyone can be a Mod, and Mods can ban sub users for anything. It’s all good and roses until you get slapped with the arbitrary perma sub bans because a mod doesn’t agree with the way you think and didn’t like even your mild comment. Trust me - if you post, and esp if you talk about controversial topics, it’s coming and it will be irritating. You might not even notice if you didn’t say anything terrible and don’t post much on that account. Again, sub mods can and do perma ban for the most polite and well reasoned comments. And if you start using Reddit enough, soon you might make a mistake and accidentally comment somewhere you were banned from, like my comment recently, “100%,” I said to someone, on a sub I didn’t know I was banned from. I researched it and I had posted a single polite comment disagreeing with someone about a controversial topic more than 4 months ago. Then, according to Reddit I was trying to circumvent a ban. 7 day suspension. I am a veteran Reddit user and commenter and this took me one step closer to never using Reddit again.

Terrible experience, simply a service not worth a subscription for. I decided to check out the official app with the recent news about third party API changes. The ads, quality of life, and user features of Reddit are SO much worse with this than any third party app. A service like Reddit is simply not worth a monthly fee. Everything wants to be an eternally billing service these days, but the reality is not everyone gets to be. I had no problem buying a premium mobile app as a one time fee, but I’m not paying for an already monetized service that only serves text and still images when video hosting services (significantly more expensive to run) offer a better experience for free users and a better value per dollar for premium. As a 10 year plus user of Reddit, go check /u/Tyr808, I’ll simply be closing my account for good. Reddit has already gone wildly down hill over the years anyway ever since it just keeps getting more and more corporate. I’d rather cut my ties with it entirely than stomach one more awful change.

New update makes the app unbearable with the new video player. I’ve used the Reddit app for about 2 years, despite all its bugs and flaws because I understand that my traffic contributes to the income the devs get. I am now deleting this app to move to Apollo 3rd party, as it seems there’s absolutely zero consideration to the user base when this new video player was designed. It’s the most unintuitive design imaginable, that irritates me every time i click on a gif or video post. Revert the unnecessary change and I’ll gladly revise this review, until then i don’t see myself coming back to this app. I don’t dislike it because it mirrors that of Tik-Tok, i hate it because of the new viewing window when looking at comments, the inability to enjoy cross-posted video threads, the pointless feature of being able to view other videos beneath it, as well as the irrational swipe feature to view comments. Blows my mind his a company decided to take a perfectly good feature about their app and then just completely obliterate it for something no one likes, and then ignore the feedback, find access to Reddit somewhere else.

An interesting type of app. This app is a very unique app because of the countless communities this place has, you can just scroll scroll down once and you can find another great subreddit just waiting for you, not to mention most subreddits are incredibly funny, interesting, and some directed to your liking. Granted, the app has minor flaws, such as the people that overreact to the slightest things, the fact some videos can break your ears, and some can even show you something weird, or gross. But the fact that there’s so many good things, plus some bad things might not even exist for you, weigh down the negative things about the app for miles on end that they don’t bother you at all really, it’s a good app and it pretty much cures any boring time, (not at funerals, Not at funerals, not at funerals, not at funerals) and it allows people to express their creativity in many ways, this app is worth getting for the entertainment it will give you

Absolute garbage. Looooong time reddit user, 8+ years and this app is beyond garbage. Videos that I’m not looking at play constantly even after moving past them, videos auto-play once you click comments even after pausing it, constantly crashes. The same content is constantly shown, days after it was first shown in my feed. All of these issues are new since the last major overhaul, I assumed it was just a case of bugs that would be worked out so I gave the developers the benefit of the doubt for what seems like well over a year. The absolute unusable-ness of this app has pushed me to delete my account and not look back. Do not download this, and don’t get hooked on the addictive algorithm it just isn’t worth it. Also the constant notifications are incessant and obnoxious, worse than facebook. I would give it zero stars if I could but I want to make sure this doesn’t get lost in all of the dumb one star reviews. I was a huge reddit fan, and they’ve honestly just ruined everything that made it good. Now with Reddit going public soon theres no way it wont get worse.

Love it. I’m beginning to feel the addiction take hold. I really like the potential Reddit has for sharing ideas and discussions. I do have one complaint, that is, that there are too many rules. Which wouldn’t be so bad if it didn’t wait till you spend time writing something just to be denied in a sort of rude manner. It is annoying when the reasoning for denial is something like, you have to wait 5 days to post on this subreddit or you have to have X amount of gifts or points. I can sort of see where it’s trying to improve and think it’s a decent idea. However, perhaps a little change to the bot mediator system would improve this app in a profound way. On more than one occasion I have been denied after spending time crafting words. This huge review should give you a sense of what I mean. I’ll work on shorter comments and then we’ll both be on our way!

“View site in app” doesn’t work. Reddit is by far one of the best and most useful sites in the web. Whenever I’m searching for an answer to a hard-to-word question, including “reddit” in the search terms always reveals a ton of better answers than the ads & lists which make up most google results. The Reddit app is a different case altogether. Whenever I try the above approach on my phone, the site promises “this page looks better in the app.” Even with it already installed, these links just go to the App Store, rather than opening that page in the Reddit app. This just makes the whole thing feel useless - searching Reddit directly isn’t particularly accurate, so I end up just trying to ignore the button and view the results in the browser. The issue isn’t so much with the app as with those links. They’re essentially just one big redirect to the App Store, rather than something useful which automatically opens that page in the Reddit app (and only goes to the store if the app is not installed). This may seem like a little thing, but it also seems like an easy fix, and the fact that I run into this almost every day makes all of those little irritations really add up.

Nowhere near the best Reddit app, soon to be the only one.. While this manages to be an okay, if a bit mediocre app it is far, far outdone by better 3rd-party apps like Apollo. Reddit has decided to charge for API access, which is reasonable, but they’ve chosen absurd pricing. Apollo alone would be facing $20 million a year to continue using the APIs. Rather than choosing to build the best app that users want to use they’re effectively killing off better apps they can’t compete with. On top of that they’re attacking other developers and lying about their discussions purely because other developers have requested a reasonable rate that they could meet. The same developers that have helped them build Reddit into the popular and successful business it is today. Despite huge resources they can’t compete with small one or two person teams because users aren’t their priority. They could have handled API access at reasonable rates, they could make their app the best on the market, they could put users first, instead they’ve compromised their integrity. There will no longer be better apps to use Reddit, but there will be better networks.

They keep on permabanning my accounts. I made an account. My parents followed it closely and when I admitted truths, they punished me badly. So I made an alternate account they didn’t know about as to not cause drama. And they deleted both my accounts for “circumventing a ban” in another subreddit that I’d never been in before, they got my accounts confused with another persons. So I made another account. Same thing happened, they thought that was connected to an account of a person I didn’t even know. They banned me for lying about being banned from r/AmITheAssHole, which I have never been banned from. They cited a comment that was the apparent “lie”. The comment was, and I’m not kidding, asking for plant advice. So that account got banned. Since then, any account I’ve made has been permanently banned within HOURS. Their frickin’ site is ran on a potato. I can’t even just browse Reddit in peace or have fun because they made a mistake a long time ago and refuse to admit it, thus every account I’ve had, despite never even doing anything wrong, has been deleted for “circumventing a subreddit ban”. Screw this app, wouldn’t recommend it, 1 star

My fifth year on Reddit. Today was my 5th Reddit cake day. I thought I’d leave a review for the app since it has been almost 100% of my interaction with the site since singing up 5 years ago. I have tried other 3rd party Reddit apps and find that this one is the best for me. It’s easy to navigate and play with and does have some nice features for finding new subs and whatever. Does the basic functions of Reddit pretty well, as it should. HOWEVER The app is constantly being “improved” with god awful UI quirks to make it some form of “better.” The app is constantly fixing what isn’t broken. Just getting used to a certain feature of the app? Yeah, they’ll change it to something even more awkward and unusable in a few months. The most recent video player change makes NO sense and I don’t know of a single user I’ve interacted with that actually thinks it’s a good idea. As I mentioned before the site is really good at the basics of Reddit. And it should focus on being the best app for those basic features of the site! Stop messing with all the controls every few months and releasing updates that are just out of wack, for no good reason! Refine what works well and keep being the best at the fundamentals for the website YOU created in the first place! I love Reddit but these changes are frequent and annoying enough to make me just close the app after a minute or two because interacting with the content is such a chore. Really frustrating!

Put 5 star so you have chance of seeing. Where do I start. I been using Reddit awhile. Don’t use Reddit if you have any questions. They will most likely have a bot that doesn’t understand English and blocks your comment even though you haven’t broken any rules. This is okay but then it will stop you from trying to post your question again. It will say “wait 20 mins your posting to fast” I DIDN'T EVEN GET TO POST! What are you talking about ? This is a very small problem which made millions of people decide Reddit isn’t worth it. If you need news I would recommend somewhere anywhere else but Reddit If you have a question your not gonna get an answer let alone be able to post your question. If you wanna just have discussions Reddit isn’t the best place. The discussion would take over 8 hours and 1 person might be able to say 2 maybe 3 posts that can help/ answer someone’s question. (No matter what forum no matter place you are tying to post to. If you posted somewhere else on Reddit you still have to wait 20-30 mins. I don’t know about you but if I need help getting a answer then I’m not gonna have 2 hours to wait if I failed or forgot to mention something. This is literally one for he dumbest apps. I think it’s for people who are toxic who are trying to not by toxic I don’t know. Truth Reddit has become useless. Definitely for people who have things to do in there lives.

The most unique and customized social media platform out there. Many people look at me like I’m a nerd or dweeb when I say something about Reddit, but that’s just because they’ve never used it. Reddit possesses its own culture, comment memes, and sense of humor and it is just delightful. It’s where you can have a simple epiphany that gains you underserved adoration from thousands of random Redditors, and where you might just have the cofounder ask you if you’re his brother (both of which have happened to me, thank you Mr. O’Hanion). Reddit creates a feed based on your interests. There are thousands of subs dedicated to very specific things, many of which you didn’t even realize you were interested in. It’s not like FB or IG where you scroll and hope to find something interesting or relevant to you. On Reddit, the feed is made up of things you subbed to, and after you create a feed, you get to get your hands dirty in the comments... just do it, you won’t regret it.

ABSOLUTELY awesome to be able to ask advice from Someone/Anyone & Receive it ASAP. I have been extremely happy since I’ve found and become a member of Reddit. For the most part (like 90-96% of the time) I can ask a serious, and very personal question & I ALWAYS get a response, no matter what I’m asking. Yes SOMETIMES there is a troll, but they’re will always be one if your just going to sit on your bridge not sure which way to go at your crossroad. For me? That’s where Reddit sometimes comes in to help me. I’ll be stuck at my next crossroad, my juncture if you will. But I can’t quite decide for whatever reasons. Reddit’s place is also one of the most HILARIOUS if your lookin for the right threads, then you’ll know what I’m talking about, lol. I’m just SUPER STOKED that I’ve found Reddit, and I’m glad that others have too. Bc like life, it would be awfully boring going it alone! Thank you Reddit and my fellow Reddit-ers! Lol

Latest updates are ruining this app. I am a long time user of the Reddit mobile app and haven’t had any problems up until the release of the latest updates. One major problem is the new video player. Any time you try to open a gif or video, you’re forced to view it in Tik Tok format. It is absolutely dreadful to try and read the comment section of posts with this sort of media. This new feature alone makes the app borderline unusable. Another issue with the latest updates is that the home feed is now filled with posts from communities that you are not subscribed to. If I wanted to see that content, I would be following those communities, so seeing those posts on my feed is annoying. It is very clear that they are trying to mimic the features of other social media, and in doing so, they are ruining the app. A lot of what made this app good in the first place was the fact that it wasn’t like every other social media. Tons of Reddit users have voiced their dislike for these new features and things need to be fixed.

Falsely Accused, Permanently Suspended. My account has been permanently suspended for supposedly posting something sexually suggestive toward a minor. Browse the few comments I’ve made, admin, because I haven’t made any posts, only comments here and there. I’ve deactivated my account because I’ve gotten no acknowledgement from actual staff in regards to my appeal or any of the other times I tried contacting them regarding this false accusation. The Reddit app itself won’t even allow me to sign out. It keeps reading “error”. I’m also thoroughly disappointed that anyone can troll your account and make false reports without admin looking into it. I’ve had all my privileges taken away for no good reason, and I tried to work with them to restore my account to no avail. If I ever get back on Reddit, I’ll truly be afraid to post/comment/upvote on ANYTHING for fear that the trolls will win and destroy my new account. They win on Reddit, at least. This was my favorite app, now it makes me angry and disheartened.

For and not for softies. I was able to finally free myself from some sorts of social media here. I’m not commenting as me and I’m not comparing myself to someone that I would have seen on another platform. It’s anonymous which is great. Making sure you “stay in your lane” as in keeping within the type of subreddits that really intrigue you is what everyone should start with. Don’t explore random things.. find a community here that you are super into. ExampleX I just started my first outdoor garden and there’s r/gardening or r/homestead if I wanted to look for some others doing what I’m doing. It’s really cool once you do find a community that fits your hobby whatever it may be. However there are areas of this platform that spew endless negativity but goodluck finding a platform that doesn’t.. I mean last I heard neopets was done for. Luckily I’ve found some super cool tips from countless subs that have helped in my own real life. Stay away from hate and get into what you’ve always liked!

Dark UX patterns. Reddit used to be great. It’s still really good, but the commercialization of it has pushed the need for growth and conversion. These metrics sound good to investors, so now we cannot see 18+ subreddits in a browser, you get forced to download the app (3rd party apps work normally, for now, I fully expect them to enforce a move to the official app soon though). At every turn you get lured into using the app. For the majority of redditors who just want to “read it” this is a dark pattern, as we don’t want to, but are being forced to download and use the app under the guise of a better experience. But we all know that companies can collect more data and metrics from apps, because most of us are savvy enough to use as blockers and DNS filters like NextDNS on our regular browsers. So Reddit itself gets four stars. This app gets 4 stars if you want it. The one star is for the overall experience of this app, as an unnecessary bloat to my phone, and overreach into my data forced by greedy investors, and the use of UX dark patterns. To the UX researchers and designers, come join us on Mixed Methods slack channel, because you need some education on how to push back to management—this won’t end well for Reddit imo.

Update seriously broke accessibility for voiceover users. Multiple reply buttons all over the screen used to show up when replying to a message and it was hard to guess which reply button would reply to your message. Now when replying to a message all that’s on the screen is multiple instances of the same advertisement and reply button is nowhere to be found. Nobody is going to develop for reddit and pay those api prices outside of reddit itself unless Microsoft or some other deep pockets corp does reddit development in the future. I’m going to delete this app and if I have reason to think of reddit in a year’s time I’ll try the app again then and see if it’s anymore useable than now. I’m leaving for hive and I’m not happy doing this since there were communities on reddit I found interesting. Appollo was taken down and for voiceover users appollo was the best accessibility app available for reddit on the iphone. As was said at the end of Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy “thanks for all the fishes”.

Avoid at all costs. Apple didn’t post my original review and this needs to be read. I’ve used Reddit for quite some time, usually just browsing through topics. The ONE time I shared my own personal experience with wanting advice about cutting off a sibling, Reddit refused to post it. Not only that, but I got an incredibly nasty message from a modifier saying I didn’t use a “trigger warning” and that I’m not allowed to talk about what someone else does. So essentially, I was not allowed to discuss reasons I felt my sibling was not a good person? I got a permanent ban. Meanwhile, there are posts on there about illegal substance usage, people cheating on spouses, and worse..I can’t share a story about growing up with a sibling I don’t get along with??? I’ve since deleted Reddit. There is NO free speech on that platform and the cowardly modifiers have absolutely no lives with far too much “power” behind their computer screens. I will never use their website and deleted my account after giving a piece of my mind to the modifier. If you’re considering this app, don’t. Run the other way, find another community. You will be censored if you try to contribute to a conversation.

Updated Video UI Is the Last Straw. The app functions relatively well, but Reddit developers have - over time - regressed the UI of their mobile app. It started with the increasing frequency of ads and subreddits oh don’t follow thrown into your feed.. then the Reddit Public Access Livestream starts showing up every five posts. For multiple versions now, the interplay between clicking a Reddit link in your mobile browser and it asking if you want to open it in the app has been broken. Instead of opening the Reddit app, it simply takes you to the Reddit App page on your phone’s App Store, not actually opening the app. Eventually the comment threading gets worse, and now they made the video playback and interaction UI so painfully incompetent I now must find a different app to browse Reddit. If I click on the “comments” below the video, I should be taken to the comments, not this frustratingly clunky video playback interface that takes multiple taps to get what you need. This is what happens when you insist your developers keep changing things instead of keeping a solid design and bug fixing/maintaining.

Reddits full of creeps. I was banned bc I commented on a Reddit discussion about how a certain porn star was not hot…thousands of “men” weighed in on the subject & I was just trying to warn them that porn addiction is real & ruined my marriage. I got banned from that sub Reddit almost immediately. Then I complained to the mods & they banned my entire account for “bullying” & “harressment” I’ve been bullied & harressed by NUMEROUS users on that account. A few I would block & bc on that app you can make multiple accounts, a few redditors would had more than 1 after I blocked them & kept messaging me! The app is FILLED with nudes & porn omg more than most porn sites I’d imagine! I don’t know how Apple keeps it in their App Store! I’ve messaged with at least 20 Redditors & they are all a lil or ALOT off & wanted to sext with me (the “men”) it’s a mental Verizon of Facebook. If you want to feel sane go on there for about 5 minutes. People down vote you for saying things like “I wish you’d love yourself” & people say how much they hate themselves or their lives & that’s fine but if you talk bad about porn….you’re banned. Utterly ridiculous. I’d LOVE to talk to the CEO of this company

Great mobile experience that needs to be tuned for iPad. I’ve been using Reddit on iPhone for the better part of six years, and just recently got an iPad, so I’ve started using the app on here as well. I hope a developer actually sees this review because I think this small adjustment can really do wonders for the iPad experience as more and more people are using the iPad as their proper daily computer, either for work or leisure. I think the portrait orientation of the app is fine, but landscape just has so much wasted screen space. I think that extra space can be used to be more like the desktop version of Reddit to give the iPad a more unique experience rather than just feeling like an upscaled iOS version for iPadOS. There’s plenty of space in the left (or right) margin to utilize the profile menu that is normally hidden, as well as using the other margin for in-subreddit sidebars. I know concerns about a congested screen can make that seem like a bad idea, but I believe it’s something to at least try to really round out an otherwise great mobile app.

video player and explore tab are awful. the past few reddit updates are literally so horrible that i came here to write a review and i never write reviews. the video player is god awful on mobile, why when i click the comments to go to the post, it completely minimizes the video. then if i want to make the video bigger i click the video but if i swipe down it brings me to some random next video? no i want to leave!! why would i want to go to another random video?? what is the random video even from???? and now the newest update replaces the second tab on the left where i used to go to to find all my subreddits im subscribed to, my recent subs i visited and etc. and now it just has some useless explore feature showing random pictures and posts that im not even subscribed to. and theres ONE thin small bar at the top for me to horizontally scroll through all of my favorited subreddits. theres an option to click to view all which brings me back to the original screen but WHY IS THE EXPLORE PAGE THE DEFAULT. i joined reddit because it wasnt like typical social media, and now it is. horrible

App PMs don’t listen to users. I’ve been using Reddit for over 10 years, starting with the Alien Blue app on iOS when Reddit didn’t have its own native app. It was then bought by Reddit and everyone was eventually migrated over to an official Reddit Mobile app about 3-ish years ago. Since then, everything I loved about Alien Blue has been stripped away until finally, in early 2021, the experience became downright awful. The video player is beyond bad, they keep pushing recommendations down your throat, and they continue to pester you to subscribe to things just because you looked at it once. I WANT to use the official app; I tried an alternative (Apollo) several times over the last two years but always went back to Reddit Mobile because it felt better. I can’t say that anymore; the Reddit PM who owns the mobile app straight up ignores constant constructive feedback about the negative changes being made and the UX continues to worsen. I’ve officially moved to Apollo not for the love of its features but because Reddit Mobile has gotten so much worse to the point of misery and infuriation when trying to use it.

Honestly a hard review.. The app is overall a good platform but it rewards mob mentality promoting echo chambers and confirmation bias. Which isn’t all bad. The flaw is people avoid being ostracized leading to more censored takes killing any actual constructive engagement. Example you ask questions about help with a car person A: this is the issue I ran into and how I resolved it. Person B: I’m a mechanic and wouldn’t recommend it because x,y,z. The community may mob either a or b because A, “you shouldn’t give advice you’re lucky that worked”. Or B: “your wrong because my uncles third cousin yada yada” The good thing about the app is it’s very easy to farm karma by either agreeing with the echo chamber, dog piling, or having general states to play on emotions. Recommendation, if you plan to use the app have two accounts. One for actually engaging and getting down voted into oblivion and a second one to have reserved, general takes, well farming karma if you want. It’s not a serious app because anything nuance is a bomb. For gaming, hobbies, and so on it will work well as there isn’t as much of a mob mentality. Overall I wouldn’t recommend actually fully engaging with the app.

Reddit is great, app is a bit buggy. I switched over to this app once third party apps were shut down. Overall the app is fine, but there are some frustrating bugs that make me switch to a different social media site more frequently than I did before: - The app is very inconsistent when it comes to marking posts as read. If I read it from one feed it’s marked read in that feed but then if I navigate to the subreddit it’s not marked read there. - The back button frequently gets stuck on a post and freezes the app to one post. The only way to get out is to force quit. This wouldn’t be that annoying, but I prefer to navigate Reddit by looking at one subreddit at a time for the most part. So, to get back to a different subreddit on the app, you have to double tap back past the home feed and to the side nav every time. And since it doesn’t keep track of your state and frequently freezes during that flow, it makes browsing for me overall pretty clunky. I wouldn’t mind the double tap back if it actually worked consistently. I landed on 3 stars because I do frequently give up on the app and do something else for a while, and certainly spend less time browsing than I did before. I’m still a fan of Reddit though and would love to see the app improve! UI/UX is mostly fine, just fix more of these bugs instead of adding new features and you all will be golden. Thanks!

Good content but bad U.I. The content on reddit can’t be criticized because it is all user material, but the way we interact with the content CAN. The user interface is trash and hard to use. Scrolling through a video on ios almost certainly results in failure as the bar to scroll through the video is far too close to the bar you swipe to change apps. Another thing, when googling a question and finding answer on the reddit site, opening to the app takes you to the app store and doesnt let you see the actual post preventing you from seeing the rest of original post, or comments which for some reason is not allowed on the website. The whole system of selecting posts to view is broken to me. swiping up or down like in tiktok does not show the previous or next video in the sub, it shows a random slightly connected video forcing you to swipe out of any post to view the next in the sub. Small changes to improve quality of life is all that is needed to make this app a 5/5 stars for me

This is what the internet would be if it was censored. I would rate 0 stars but then it wouldnt show up, this app is terrible, i cant even view a discussion thread without being forced to download this app and i dont want it, the administrators are all politically biased power trippers who force you to dance to their tune, or you get banned, its like an echo chamber. If you arent an extreme leftist and you try to have a serious discussion on a political subreddit, you will be banned, if you try to dispute the ban they will ignore you, if you tell them to perm ban you from the garbage subreddit they will ban you from the whole app for harassment, the moderators have too much power and no repercussions for misusing it, you can be banned for literally anything if they deem it so, the only thing this community is good for is video game discussions or help, everything else is biased and subjective, people call ifunny the forbidden app, but atleast you have more rights there than here

4.8 / 5 Stars? No way that’s true.. There is absolutely positively no way this app has 4.8 stars. It is the biggest piece of ad choked garbage out there. They traded user experience for as much $$$ as possible. Not to mention they constantly force you to use it. If you use a search engine and tap something that happens to be on Reddit, you are forced to open it in the app. Reddit was one of the things that made the internet great and they ran it completely into the ground. It’s like MTV all over again. Used to be cool now it’s just a corporate sponsored joke. Even the worst 3rd party Reddit app is better than their native app? No one wants to view Reddit through your dumb app so stop forcing people to do it. Update: I still hate it Update 2: now that they are forcing out 3rd party apps by charging insane pricing I will simply not go on Reddit. I feel like they think forcing us to use their garbage native app that we will all bite the bullet and use it. Not a chance. I’d rather stair at a wall than use their native app. If your app was decent people would use it but they don’t. Add Reddit to the pile of apps that were cool but they chased the $$$ too hard and crashed & burned.

Misinformation Station. While the majority of the communities on Reddit (known colloquially as ‘subreddits’) aren’t political in nature, the top most subs like r/news and r/politics are riddled with left-wing enthusiasts, posting articles that are either outright false or demonise their supposed enemies, to the point where violent threats are celebrated towards those who are being targeted by said articles and hit-pieces; many of those cheering on these violent threats are the same moderators that moderate around 90% of the subreddits on the site. There’s also a heavy contingent of subreddits that engage in racism towards those they believe are stereotypes of a person’s colour, such as r/WhitePeopleTwitter, which mocks those of Caucasian skin tone based on mostly rehashed posts of those aforementioned ‘people to hate’. Last of all, the app is soon to implement a change in their site that would disallow third-party apps (such as Apollo, which is used by moderators (Reddit-appointed or not) for its moderation tools) from accessing the site entirely, making it an echo chamber for those who are paying for Reddit’s subscription service (Reddit Gold) and the hateful users who will be able to threaten violence against anyone right-of-center.

Ruined by June 11 Update. So this app has been said to be inferior to other reddit applications, but I always found it to be perfectly suitable to my needs. Now all of a sudden I open up reddit for a little late night browsing before I go to bed and there has suddenly been some sort of update that I never downloaded and had no way to opt out of. This update butchered the video player that I was very content with, which is my main point of contention. It is clearly trying to mimic the “scrolling feed” that has become standard for most social media apps, but the reality is that most people come to reddit because they don’t want that crap. I have no desire to tap on a video and get brought to a blatant tiktok ripoff video player, in which I can swipe up and see content completely unrelated to the subs I am subscribed to. What makes it worse is the way the comments look when I open them up. I just liked it the way it was, and it seems that all of these updates were not intended to provide a better user experience. I hope they update the app with the option to go back to the way things were. Until then I honestly just don’t see myself enjoying this app.

Spez is a greedy liar. As an 8-year Reddit user I have not been happy with the official Reddit site/app’s decisions to “modernize” the app and make the experience more social-media-esque. I am a long time Apollo user, and the reasons why the official Reddit app is an inferior product are as such: 1. Ads. Ads everywhere. You can’t avoid them. 2. Avatars and social media aspects. Reddit is straying too far from its roots as a pseudo-anonymous forum. 3. “Algorithm” and “tailored” feed. If I wanted that I would re-download Instagram. 4. Can’t sort by rising. 5. Spacing. Too much empty space, poor design, no compact option. 6. Slower load times and more server errors than 3rd party apps. Spez, the head of Reddit, blatantly lied about the creator of Apollo sending threatening/harassing/blackmailing messages. Christian (Apollo’s creator) debunked these claims with audio and visual proof. Spez is a slimy, greedy, narrow-minded, stubborn moron. Do not support him and his decisions. Reddit, I am extremely disappointed with your decisions to essentially blacklist all 3rd party apps. I have nearly 100k karma and have been a daily, active member for years. No more. I hope the website crashes and burns.

Needs block filter URGENTLY. Dear Reddit creators, I have used Reddit for many years as a means to connect with other people of similar communities but the lack of a block filter has become increasingly annoying. To my knowledge there is no way to block a subreddits content from MY feed without upgrading to premium. There are many things I’d rather not see on Reddit when I’m simply scrolling through my gaming communities looking for updates and such. I have seen something so disgusting today I’ve had to delete Reddit all together due to the mental health crisis it spiraled me into. As someone who has dealt with crippling mental illness for years and spent countless days in therapy working through problems, having one single post set me back months on my progress is unacceptable. I know I’m not the only person who is suffering from this. All I want is to be able to see feeds from the subs I have joined so I don’t risk my mental health while looking at a thread of Pokémon related content. Do better! And just an added touch, NSFW content does not cover many of the things that I have been personally triggered by in subs I am not a part of nor have I ever shown interest in.
