zachary dachary doc - Fun Website
It took me a while, and I’m still learning how to navigate through this site, but it hasn’t been very difficult to do that. I’m not a very “Techy” kind of guy but this has been one Thousand 14of the most fun sites that I have come across. It’s always interesting because there are so many categories to explore. There’s even a Longtab to press on specifically called “explore “ and you can enter any subject you want to see or learn more about and then this site actually looks up whatever you just entered and computes that & comes back and then you can go ahead and explore what they have available to check out. That’s a lot of subject when you can't remembermatter they have stored so it stands to reason that anyone can join this site and be entertained either for free or for very little cost if you want to contribute to the subjects that you already find interesting to you. It’s a really cool website. I suggest checking this out and seeing for yourself. I doubt that you would be disappointed for doing that. Take it easy, y’all. CHEERS! 🍻🍺🍻🍺🍻🍺🍻
Quantavious75 - Uptight
I understand the concept of rules, to prevent harassment and such, and to keep a friendly environment for people to share and discuss things. Sure. But the rules seem like they require a college course to understand and navigate. Say you need help with a build in a video game. So you post and see if someone more experienced can help you (the purpose of the app right?) and if you post to the “wrong sub” then all you’ll get is an admin telling you you they aren’t going to help you or that it’s been posted before. It’s frustrating because a sub with 500,000 members it’s gunna be hard to find the problem being solved before. Sometimes I’m the more experienced guy and I roll through a post giving answers to questions. But if there’s 2 questions in one thread that haven’t been answered, then I can’t answer but one every 8 minutes (to avoid spam of course) but it hinders the point of the whole thing, you know? So the rules and etiquette are unwritten and unspoken and seem convoluted, but are enforced with impunity and make it difficult to fulfill the purpose of the app. Kind of ridiculous. Other than that, it’s one of the top places to find answers to your questions. Also full of entertaining posts to kill time. Thanks for listening to my TED talk
senatorlance - Great, But
The whole app is put together very well with a good system of rewarding the best comments by giving them more exposure by bumping to the top and the “Karma points” is like no other media app that I used. The minimalistic interface of the main page is easily navigated as well. It’s all great, BUT, the political subreddits that are so called “neutral” (/r politics /r worldnews) are 98% left leaning where the posts are predominantly liberal. Due to the demographics of Reddit(large young population/ academics/tech community/ etc) any opinion that questions their narrative or simply doesn’t agree, gets downvoted by the entire community, disproportionally downvoting your comment/post until you have negative karma points inevitably by stating your mind in “neutral” subreddits. There needs to be algorithms that pick up on these patterns that counter balance the bias or remove politics from the app altogether and create a political Reddit separate from Reddit. This will solve the problem of the echo chamber style subreddits and removed censorship from this free speech platform. That is all.
LoneWolf21907 - Very cool Nintendo, but there are issues
I love the idea of this app. It feels really unique and more diverse than other social media apps, and the karma system is pretty nice. You can pretty much find anything you want here, and it’s really simple and easy to use. But I recently discovered a subreddit called r/politics. And dear god, all I wanted to do was talk about how I thought being conservative was a better option, and almost moments after that, I started seeing comments and people hating on me simply because I had a different opinion. Then, they just banned me from the subreddit, claiming I had “broken a rule”. Well after creating another account and looking at the subreddit, I realized how absurd it is. Complete bias against Conservatives and the right wing, and even when I was sorting by new, I rarely saw any posts supporting the right wing. This pretty much applies to every single god damned subreddit on this “free speech platform”. It’s pathetic. Anyways, basically it’s just completely biased and almost completely blocks out anyone who supports Republicans. The rest of the app is fine, but if your going to Calle it a free speech app, then make it a god damned free speech app.
Track-Man - Reddit Review
I am a very oppositional person. When I was a child, I was resistant to the dawn of the internet age. I didn’t like selfies, or pictures taken on a phone; I saw social media as a shameless illusion where people self-promoted inaccurate depictions of their lives/careers.
There is still a part of me that sees things that way, however I understand the vast potential of the internet for obtaining information. I am eternally grateful for platforms like reddit and google for allowing me to consistently improve my understanding of musical performance and audio production, by merely opening up my phone and accessing the wealth of information available for me to consume. I am a measly worm in a global community of experts who are vastly more qualified to call themselves professionals in this field than I am, and I will ensure that their contributions to this community will not be lost on me. Thank you for this opportunity to better myself and seek a career path that is truly valuable to me.
maawolfe36 - 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.
inserttrenfyusernamehere - 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!
Superbat211 - 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.
baller_chick232 - Welcome to your community
I’ve known about reddit for a long time. My partner constantly sent me links of such random interesting bits of information, memes, news articles, conspiracy theories, etc. But it always seemed like a scrolling trap to me. I decided to download the app on a whim and shortly after created an account. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder about a year ago and the hardest part was having no one in my life to truly connect with over my experiences. I looked for online forums, support groups, even hotlines in desperation. But it all felt surface-level and people couldn’t really share what’s truly on their minds. I was spiraling. I found a community on reddit of people who were in my exact same boat. Reddit provides a platform for people to connect in a relaxed and creative way to share what’s truly in their hearts and minds. There is a subreddit for almost anything. I can’t recommend this app enough.
VeniVidiReliqui - Good app, Sharing Options are TERRIBLE
The app works great and is getting better all the time. If you’re here to browse Reddit on your own it works perfectly. However, if you want to share anything you find, you’re in for a confusing time.
Reddit feels the need to share the link to the post even if all you’re trying to share is an image. I get they want traffic to their site, but trying to share images via MMS becomes obnoxious because you’re always sharing the image AND the link.
In most messaging apps, this renders a preview of the image alongside the picture that was actually sent. So as the sender I either need to delete the link to just send the picture, or give in to their intentions and only send the link. But this is also an issue because sometimes the link opens in a web browser instead of the Reddit app, which then links to the respective App Store, and finally just opens the Reddit app. By the time you’re in the Reddit app you’ve already downloaded, the link was lost from all the app switching and the post doesn’t open at all.
My biggest issue is prepending this link to the image share BREAKS Airdrop completely because it refuses to send multiple items of different types, so the only Airdrop option is to only send the link to the post.
Despite this, I’ll continue using the app because it’s a solid experience for viewing content. But I’ll cringe every time I want to share something until Reddit lets ME choose when I want to send links.
Jjss dtr - It works well
I always used alien blue and still have it on my phone. The official Reddit app has crashed/frozen probably 2 times in the past year or so. I don't like the advertisements and never had them on the alien blue app, but I understand it's a necessary evil. I would like the app to have some different features but since I only use Reddit on mobile I don't have a fair view of what's offered on the website or the often lauded Reddit Enhancement Suite; I know I would like to sort by rising, switch between commenting and checking another sub Reddit (to reference or link) without loosing/ having to cut and paste my comment. I feel any issues I have with the app are likely larger issue with the company- for example the report function has gone to crap, you used to be able to just report and presumably a mod would review it but now you have to choose a specific rule that was broken and I think it'll dissuade new users from reporting when they should.
DJSALAZAR626 - I Oppose Censorship. The content that remains is still good.
I Oppose Censorship. Reddit used to be a place where you could find anything and everything. My ideologies and attitudes and personal philosophies and opinions have grown and evolved over time. Reddit was one of the reasons why I am an open-minded individual. I am much more eager to listen to opposing views, in order to find common ground with people who are very different from me. I’ve learned to have productive and civil conversations. I have been motivated to become a more knowledgeable individual on a variety of issues.
The content that remains is still good. However, I believe that it is inexcusable that Reddit has censored / deleted / banned / restricted / removed many posts and subreddits over the years.
Many of us on the internet came here because it was NOT the basic / polished / scripted GARBAGE that television has become. We migrated to the internet for the freedom of ideas and expression that was nowhere to be found elsewhere.
Heed my warning. It’s all good, until they consider your ideas dangerous, and they come after you. Please return Reddit to its former glory, and restore freedom of expression. Otherwise, people will leave, and you will become the relic media that you deposed.
Great app though.
TLDR: Reddit used to be the place of freedom of expression and, if it wants to stay relevant, it should stop censorship.
vandoly - 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!
VKStarfox - Please Bring Organization of Saved Posts!
I love the app and the platform. But it seems that as of this new update, I can’t save posts directly to the iOS Notes app anymore? The option on the share sheet is just completely gone now. Was this intentional? I loved being able to save post to notes for immediate reference whenever I wanted to go back and read a great reddit post without having to scroll endlessly through the not-so-great “Saved” option in the app.
I honestly think that if you guys had a comprehensive saved feature that allowed users to organize our saved posts it would make the app 10x better! I don’t have much else to complain about as I think the app works beautifully otherwise, but please please please implement a feature that would allow organization of saved posts! Developers, I hope you’re listening.
A Bitter Addict - From great to ok to disappointing
I’ve always heard of Reddit but never hopped on the train until a couple of years ago. The first year was amazing! So many subreddits, so much to learn, so much to laugh at. Then around the start of 2020, Reddit took a turn towards politics. I don’t mind that at all, but I get enough of that outside. It was doable to ignore and I still enjoyed the app enough. Towards the middle of 2020, it was like Reddit was becoming just like any other app with no distinction: ads galore, in app purchases (I’m still not sure why people waste their money on that), and notifications that you can’t get rid of unless you turn on your notification on your personal phone. That right there is just annoying. Reddit, you were fun at first, but you got a little political, when I just wanted to go to this app to laugh and learn. Reddit, you submerged my pages in an ad almost every other post. Reddit, I don’t want you to constantly notify me to get back on the page. I can do that just fine on my own. And because of that, I am letting you go Reddit. Good luck.
Cman5346 - Starting to get toxic
Honestly, I used to love Reddit and have had an account for four years. Now the community is no where near as welcoming as it was. Mods remove posts and say it’s for violating subreddit rules, but they allow numerous other users to make posts violating the same rule. Or they’ll remove your post and say “please message the moderators of this sub if you have questions” and then ban your ability to message them when you actually do. Make a post to a subreddit like r/explainlikeimfive (where you go to ask questions about complex topics and get simple answers) and the community practically laughs in your face when they comment on the post, making you feel absolutely stupid. The community is straight up toxic at this point and I see no way Reddit can compete with big name social media companies anymore.
lilweirdward - Frustrating update to comment collapsing
This review is specifically regarding the current update and not the app as a whole.
It's incredibly frustrating to have the method for collapsing a comment be completely changed without any notification other than what was nested in the app updates description. I don't understand why it was changed in the first place from just tapping the upper area of the comment next to the user name, but without any sort of note that it had been changed I spent a few minutes thinking the app was broken, and really only stumbled on the long tap functionality by accident. Would have never guessed to double tap a comment since that's usually reserved for upvoting things in other apps.
UX devs, PLEASE don't rewrite core functionality without giving users any update in-app that it's been rewritten. At least give a one-time pop up or something letting me know what it's been changed to.
C00la90210311 - Redit app
The reason it’s 4/5 stars are two small glitches that need fixing will make a world of difference for the user.
1.) when the you screen swipe from left to right to page back instead of tapping the arrow at the top right to page back in the app it goes back two pages. This only happens sometimes, as though the apps goes through little glitchy spells with it and it’s so frustrating that I stop using the app all together for a while.
2.) the default app refresh, which I know you can change the settings for on your iPhone, but Reddit specifically seems to refresh *much* more often than other apps. This is problematic when I’m using Reddit, then find something I’d like to research or save or send to someone and I switch from the Reddit app to a different app when I go ask to the reddit app (which is usually within 30 seconds) it’s refreshed and I have to re-find the deep dive it’d done
Ava E Phoenix - I would not recommend the app
The app is pretty terrible. I had fun when I first got it but there’s a huge problem, the constant reposts. In every subreddit there’s tons of reposts, it was okay at first since people would repost content that was made years ago but now people are reposting content that was made only a few hours ago. It’s impossible having fun on this site since there’s basically no original content anymore and any content you made will most likely get reposted and reddit doesn’t care. I have reported so many pictures and videos for being reposts of another picture/video that was posted a few hours ago and all the things I’ve reported are still up. Also why can’t you delete your mobile reddit account? It’s not that hard just adding a button that allows you to delete your reddit account in the settings. I’ve tried so many tutorials and none of them have worked. The only reason why I re-downloaded reddit was because I needed to ask a question and reddit hasn't answered my question and just put more stress on me. How do I delete my reddit account?
Needs updates, very bad. - Latest update a perfect example of devs who mess with the ui too much
Why oh why did the devs place the “give award” button right next to the share button, shifting everything over? Now every time I go to hit view comments, it brings up the share option. Because I’m so used to the old placement. I will truly never understand the though process behind changing UI that has been a certain way for so long. Would it not be possible to reduce the click box size for the share button? Or just move the award button back to its original place?
I never leave negative reviews on anything unless something genuinely pisses me off, and well, that button placement genuinely pisses me off. There are many other reasons to give this app 2 stars. Like the fact that you can’t save videos with sound, and the fact that they constantly change the UI more and more just to push you into giving them money. But all I really ask is if something isn’t broken, like the button placement, don’t change/fix it. Thanks.
Libertarian man! - The WORST “social” app.
Reddit is a very interesting place..
On one hand, there’s a subreddit for basically every single thing you can think of. Most of them are crowded enough to share news, tips, feedback, find a community, friends, network, etc...
On the other hand, your ability to socialize is dictated entirely by other users; reminds me of the social credit system that china uses. If people don’t like what I have to say, I’m limited in the amount of comments I’m allowed to make, until i say something they like, and get enough “upvotes” (by the same people who downvoted other comments, causing me to not be able to comment, in the first place). This is such a broken, garbage system. If I share an opinion and say “that dog is cute!” And other people don’t think so, so they downvote me, guess what? I’ve got to wait 10 minutes before I can comment again or reply to people replying to my comment. So basically unless I say “that dog is ugly!”....I’m going to continue to get downvoted. This app and this community are incredibly toxic. Reddit is even worse than facebook at this point.
JTTheMad - Good Except For A Few Annoying Bugs
For the most part it runs smoothly, but there are a few bugs that really mess with things.
The first one: whenever you click on posts and are scrolling through images/videos by swiping right or left rather then up and down (it’s hard to explain but you’ll know what I mean when you open the app) and you rotate your phone sideways, making the image flip as well, if you flip it back and exit out of that post, it takes you back several posts. It’s more tedious than anything really.
Second bug: this one is much more annoying. Whenever you get an alert that someone has responded to your post/comment, if you click on the alert banner it takes you to a blank page. You then have to exit out of that and go back to the alert/message screen and click on it from there. Even then, it’s pretty hit or miss on whether you’ll actually see the comment/response.
Third Bug: whenever you click on an alert, it will sometimes open up the post 5-10 times, forcing you to exit out of every post in order to get to the Home Screen.
These bugs don’t seem like a big deal at first, but they get old really fast. And I decided to finally post a review and tell people about it. Aside from the bugs being annoying, they don’t really take much from the app. I still give it four stars.
Spacypinup - I love this app but my feed keeps scrolling to the top
I love this app! I use it daily.
It dose have one extremely bad problem. You can’t just get into your feed and scroll looking at things. I do the exact same hand motion and sometimes it’s randomly jumps to the top of my feed. I love that you can scroll to the top by clicking the feed button on the feed. Now it’s scrolling to the top of my feed just randomly, as I’m scrolling normally. It is extremely irritating. Makes the app impossible to use for a full 30 minutes bathroom time. I know it’s more then just me who gets annoyed at this. I see a post on Reddit complaining about it a lot. Please at least make it optional. I definitely will give this app 5 stars if that gets fixed in the future. It was annoying but after the newest update it’s extremely irritating. If it wasn’t for that one big problem, this is a 5 star app.
RareBlueMonkey - Great app - News needs work
I love the reddit community in general and this app makes interacting with reddit a pleasure.
The news section is another story. Without the news tab, I’d give the app a 4 or 5, but this section is super frustrating. For example, your choices for politics is ‘politics’. There is no way to filter out the questionable news sources (which is most of what appears in this feed). As a result this is a complete cesspool of sketchy and manipulative ‘news’. Facebook is being slammed for manipulating perception via misleading information disguised as news, but this feed is the exact same thing. I want to be able to select the sources of news that appear in this feed so I can choose reputable sources and sources that I want to see to triangulate my info. There are polarizing sources of news-like entertainment on both ‘sides’ of the political spectrum that nobody should be reading.
The current structure of this feed is contributing to the deepening divide in our country.
Dyselxia - Good if you’re a democrat.
This app is filled with wonderful ideas, pictures, videos, and stories but the comment section completely ruin the app. Think of it like this, everyone is a professional about everything they see on the app. They judge you quickly and without a full review of who you are, and they’re from what I’ve encountered mostly leftist. God forbid you actually like your president because they will belittle you to nothing before you can even share you ideas. Even the news section that happens to be one of the biggest subs to reddit is all Trump this and a Trump that instead talking about anything worth a read. Personally, I still use the app even though it’s filled with know it alls and quick to judge liberals because I can cut most of it out by not looking at comments and only following subs where political input has no place and even then people will tether Trump to the situation so if you’re already tired by the constant hate parade on Trump then I don’t think you’ll be interested in this app.
Liammalon - Reddit
Is pretty good. Just avoid the "Pro-vaccine cuz' the Doctors and Jimmy Kimmel tell me so and any evidence you lay out is tinfoil and all studies are by quacks...unless the study supports the lovely PSA's words I have most certainly seen and proclaimed as fact for all to know and besides you're not a doctor so you can't say anything so I'm right"(Slowly turn away with an uncomfortably forced smile) groups. (Yeah. Long. But, I'm on a long trip.) Warned because it's like talking to a pack of hyenas who's teeth were each replaced with a dying brain cell shared by many and any threat to that cell's stability and existence will be met with the veracity of angry giant but the intellect of a remote control's "yellow" button. Other than that parade of a hollow Webster's dictionaries riding in a float motorized by American destiny's canary in the coal mine and moved painfully by squared wheels, it's alright. Enjoy.
Frirz the dog - Rick
I’d much rather watch you cook, than listen to your brother run down my football team. You are in that kitchen. I’m an not a pro, but I am a fairly accomplished cook, and I get new ideas from you all of the time. As a matter of fact, I’m going to harvest a bit of my rhubarb, which I’ve grown tired of, until watching a really new way of preparing it , from you today. Well done Rick, and it’s great to see you bring your daughter in as well. Much in the tradition of Jacque Pepin. ( I saw that Frenchman cook an American Hamburger once, how dare he) Julia Child wasn’t from France, and did more to bring French cuisine the average American, than anyone. Anyone who argues against your right to cook whatever you want, because you didn’t descend from whatever culture is an idiot. You are one of a handful of television chefs, that explains clearly, demonstrates very well, and puts his own twist on things. Well done sir. Carry on.
unholylafo - I'm starting out and so far I love it but...
So I created my Redditch account on here and loved all the community s I could join. But eventually I wanted to start actually posting things and comment on things. I'd never done that before. And I tried to comment on a post, what happened was it said you are doing that too much try again in (Insert time between 0-8 minutes) but in reality I has actually never done anything on Redditch except create an account and join communitys. And even after a full month I still can't post or comment on almost any subreddit. I did get one bot tell me that they don't want new people posting on their subreddit because of spamming but that isn't a good way to deal with that. And I've had it for a full month and am still having this problem. I don't know if I need more karma or what. Anyway I still recommend the app besides that stupid glitch.
1234578999765432124578 - Used to be great, new UI is problematic
I've been on Reddit for several years now, starting back in 2016. I haven't had any complaints about the app until recently.
The new UI, specifically, the "news" and "popular" tabs, along with the recommended communities/posts tabs, have been mostly an annoyance. I understand the satisfaction of these tabs, but I wish I had the option to disable them and view my solely my home tab. Reddit is wonderful because of the personalization it allows, where one user's experience differs entirely from another's.
However, because of all the additional content being thrown towards me, most of it either completely disagreeable to me or simply not interesting, I feel my Reddit experience has been compromised. I don't use Reddit for politics, news, etc. I use Reddit to interact with a variety of individuals from the same academic discipline as me, for gaming highlights, and for memes. It's not hard to see that I have no interest in ANY political subreddit -- especially the large ones -- most news subreddits, or anything else that simply comes off as hostile in nature.
I know this will never be read, but if someone from Reddit sees this, please consider what I have said. There are millions of users on your platform that, like myself, are uninterested in the hostility put forth by r/politics, for example, yet we're all subjected to it.
Spraggins1316 - Please Reddit, let me sort what I want in my Popular feed
Long story short, half of the stuff in popular is usually extremely political, and heavily left sided. I’m in the middle (wooo no one likes me) but it’s extremely annoying to have to see even 25% of the posts on popular. 90% of the comments are making fun of anyone who even slightly disagrees with them, and the subs in general are just toxic. I’m not on reddit to see political bs, I’m on reddit to see things like black magic f-ery, or memes. I get on popular to maybe find a new subreddit that I enjoy, but it’s so obnoxious to see subs that I hide every single time I go on there (which is probably every day or so).
As a consumer, I should be able to hide subreddits I don’t like, if mods are allowed to hide comments that don’t fit their opinions.
Also, that’s another thing, mods have way too much power sometimes. I get being trolly and such, but I’ve seen people be banned for literally commenting on subreddits those mods disagree with, so maybe we should be able to make our comments private (on our main account, obviously if we comment somewhere else they can see it.)
I love Reddit, and would still give it five stars with these flaws, but why not make something already great even greater?
TishTrish27 - Scrolling itself?
On update-Ok so new update was writing a long message to some1&then I wanted to take something out but anytime tried 2 copy or do it manually I would get scrolled on,automatically scrolling not by me. Like I always say I’ve had hacking issues w accounts&my phone has not been right,even deleted text recently not by me so it’s possible it’s more a me thing than a Reddit thing but apple won’t check out my phone so here I am.
App in general-Reddit has something for every1,seems like a fun app,would be cool to be able to send pics to pple via messaging not use 2 not having that right there but still a fun app,lot of pple use it,seems like you can find a topic on anything&the app 2 me is pretty easy 2 use,pretty straightforward. I’m sure there’s plenty I don’t know&a lil learning curve with karma&posting but its not hard to figure things out,worth a dl.
LJCrowley - The best and worst of the internet one touch away
Reddit is a unique app in that you follow communities more than people and that creates a unique experience. It has an upside in that you can enjoy the app without having all your friends on it unlike instagram or Facebook, the downside is if you want to share it with your friends is can seem very isolating compared to those same apps. It’s an open platform to almost anything and that’s pretty cool, but it also has the downside of harboring a lot of not fun people to be around, which again is amplified by you not following your like minded buddies but just ideas. Obviously there are advantages to this, in exposing you to more thought. Basically the app does exactly what it wants and does it well so Five Stars. As for you enjoying it, that’s up in the air.
The adventure bros - One of my addictions
Hey person who just so happens to read this. Like many of the reviews you've probably read before this, it's an app that give all. Blogs for any hobby, stories to share, advice for all kinds of things, even cool videogame plays. I've been a Redditor for 3 years now, and for most of that time I've been on there to pass the time by looking at cool things people share and I just recently began to develop the thought that I might just be addicted to it. I've been on it at least once everyday for God knows how long, and even when I start to want to do something else besides be on Reddit, I close out the app and mindlessly open it back up to start using it again. Unlike normal addictions, I would consider this one to be a 10/10 and one that is definitely worth having.
Nashville Drummer Aaron D. - People of Reddit act like real people.
Hi, I’m Aaron D.
I’ve participated in most social media platforms. In my opinion, the biggest difference between Reddit and others is the user to user interactions. There are tons of people taking part in conversations of any kind. Reddit seems more like a space for open dialogue rather than a place where millions of people are waiting to pounce on someone who may not share the same views. There will always be disagreements and some arguments but from what I’ve seen, people in the various Reddit groups treat one another with more respect and common decency. It’s like Google holding the door for Bing instead of fighting over who enters first lol. In short - I’ve had a much more positive / pleasant experience with Reddit than with any other social media platform. Thanks for everything folks.
BR37460872 - I’ve had about enough
Reddit has given me a few good years of memes and news, and there are some fantastic people/communities there, but, it has become a shell of its former self. Mods don’t do their jobs. Hate subs stay up and even get to the front page. Women are treated very disgustingly as they either get sexualized or insulted just on the basis that they are a woman. Really I don’t mind these things I listed happening, as long as it’s avoidable. I just want to spend some time browsing peoples memes or artwork. The problem is that it’s unavoidable. Every sub that I join can start out nice but quickly turns sour. As I said, mods don’t do their jobs and seem to always let their subs stray from their original purpose. Reddit is an uncomfortable place filled with creepy people and every day I wonder why I bother coming back. It’s because I don’t have much else to do with my short free time. But I’ve finally had about enough, and I am deleting the app. I’ll try out instagram or something, but it seems like all social media is toxic now days.
jarrettispagetti - Reddit is amazing in many different ways
In my opinion, reddit is better than instagram and Facebook for a lot of reasons. Here’s why: First of all you can subscribe to a subreddit with members that share the same interests as you, and (depending on the amount of members it has) you’ll most likely only see high quality posts from them with thousands of upvotes(upvotes are basically the equivalent of likes). Secondly, you don’t have to be famous for your post to get a lot of upvotes. The amount it gets just depends on the effort, creativity or humor of it. Nextly, the karma system. In a nutshell, Every upvote you get is 1 more karma for you, every downvote you get is -1 karma for you. There’s lots of other reasons like the awards, the bots, the trophies, etc. But just give it a try, it’ll be worth it
Flesh muncher - Reddit review
Reddit is a fantastic tool for tracking your interest on the Internet. Back in the early days of public internet awareness, there was Usenet, where you would subscribe to threads of interest to you. Today, the successor to Usenet is Reddit. You join groups called subreddits, dedicated to topics that interest you, often when going through these subreddit discussions, you find links to other subreddits, from people of similar interest. Many subreddits have great followings and a great sense of community. Topics are diverse with minimal censorship, determined by the groups moderators. If you don't like the content or censorship of it, there is always another subreddit more to your liking. There are many Reddit readers out there, many of them good. This is the original. The way the medium is intended to be presented.
wey2rad - Great, but it could be perfect with just a few things...
I shouldn’t have to list everything great about this app.. there’s a lot, but I would love to see it add just a few more things...
1. The messages tab is intuitive and easy, but there is no longer a sent messages button. It can be difficult to pick up where you left off if you can’t find the original message. Sent messages would solve this problem giving you immediate access to messages you’ve replied to.
2. 3D Touch exists now! Everyone uses it (and has for a long time) and Reddit NEEDS it. There are so many other way to use it. Right now we can peek at posts, but we can’t peek at subs when rolling through our subscriptions. We can’t peek at messages, we can’t peak at profiles, etc. What’s already included is a great start but it’s time to take it to the next level!
ASAP N8 - Very slow recently... and new app look is ugly
I love reddit as a website and I used to love the app but I recently deleted the app because it got soooooo slow. I have to wait and load every single picture and every single video to load and it’s super frustrating. I know it’s not my phone because I have a brand new iPhone 8 and I know it’s not my Comcast WiFi because I have used reddit sitting right next to the router. Whatever updates they did recently, when they changed the look of the app (the IOS version of reddit used to be completely orange with the reddit logo but they just changed it to where there is an orange circle logo with a white background.. it’s sooo ugly and looks sloppy and unfinished in my opinion).. but yeah I think the app got super slow when they did the last update.. reddit app developers, please fix these issues and change the app back to the old look! Or else I won’t be using the app, I’ll just strictly use the reddit website on my pc...
MOBHC - Just keeps getting worse
The app is okay at best, but the updates keep making it worse. The old saying goes, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Whoever is in charge of the app obviously hasn't heard this, as they keep cramming in unnecessary updates with things nobody asked for.
This latest update that I was forced to endure doesn't load gifs or most pictures, so I have to go through a series of clicks to open up whatever I'm trying to look at in Safari and it's mostly not worth it.
Also, I absolutely hate the new "next up in r/___" that's sandwiched between the content and comments. Why have you done this? Who decided this would be a good idea?
Lastly, stop recommending the same ads/posts from the same communities over and over. If I wasn't interested the first time, I won't be interested the next 200 times either.
Honestly a few months ago I would've given the app more stars but it just keeps getting worse and worse, so here we are.
LlamaSenpai - Not Perfect But It’s Getting There
This app works pretty nicely and is much more easily consumable than its desktop counterpart. The scrolling is fluid. While ads are annoying, I understand that something has to put bread on the table and ads don’t take much effort to ignore and just scroll past. Only problem with ads is that sometimes the algorithm will set multiple after each other so you’ll get a rare instance of three ads in a row- but again, it doesn’t happen that often (for me at least). Other than that, the reddit video player (as in the video is uploaded directly to reddit and not linked from another site)- the reddit video player will freeze or just not play my video.
But I stick with my four stars, it’s easier to notice bad and take for granted the good. The design for the app is good and easy to navigate/use.
Jdoggg27 - Gets us closer to the dream of the World Wide Web
I have been known to rant about how much better the internet could be, mainly in terms of people with information reaching people interested in that information and visa versa. I’d of course heard about reddit just from being a Gen-Zer active on social media but I can’t believe I’ve never really looked into it before today. I’d assumed it was for memes mostly and I thought I had that base covered, but that’s not even the tip of the ice berg in terms of what Reddit has to offer the world. I often think about how much potential the internet has to offer, ways it could really live up to the dream of the World Wide Web, and I’m so so glad that Reddit exists because it offers services in the kind of way I think the internet badly needed. Thank you Reddit.
Doug Lakeville, MN - Solid, straightforward but missing one obvious improvement
When I first encountered Reddit mind boggles didn't understand it. For whatever reason it was until my second visit when things clicked. In all honesty though it seems like it is my fault since it's simply a list of interesting items that you tap for further information. The only thing that surprises me is that Reddit only allows customization in one direction. Ideally, I'd like to be able to access Reddit's general feed and simply bar the contributions from subreddits that do not interest me. You could still get a broad spectrum of information without having your time wasted. Instead, if you sign into Reddit, you can create your own group of subreddits that interest you. That is handy but much more narrow
meridianmp - Mods on a power trip, censorship!
Great community, but has awful moderation and censorship! Yes, once you agree to the content policy, whatever they want they can do. But this is the USA. Those site policies should be for extreme circumstances, not for any sort of speech that’s our right outside of the walled community they’ve built. I’ve been banned several times on a subreddit I frequent over the last 5 years with an pretty high karma score. Banned for “calling names” for which they didn’t read into any context and now banned totally on that subreddit for breaking the rule on a racially insensitive comment, that was part of an overly sarcastic comedy bit that’s gained traction on the very site. The moderators have no transparency, who are they? Who do they report to? Do they have free reign over censoring our community indiscriminate of context? Apparently so. Seems as if they’re on a power trip and banning users for their political affiliations from posting in other popular political sub reddits. Very hateful place, non inclusive, hypocritical, unjust, and censoring. No thanks.
R4di4ti0n - Stop with the constant changes
This is the worst update so far. Reddit keeps updating their app and “adding” features, but it is taking away usability. The most recent one is a huge deviation from standard practices- they added the ability to “swipe through” your front page, meaning that if you click an image and swipe, it will go to the next post in your front page automatically.
Sounds good? Well, swiping from the side is the universal way to back in most reasonable apps. So your instinct is to swipe back, which loads another image and frustrates you, meanwhile they changed it to be swiping up from the bottom is how you move back???
How does that make sense? I swipe UP to move BACK, and a swipe BACK, to move DOWN my list of links. It is not intuitive and is incredibly frustrating.
And, to complicate things further, their text only posts or comments, still require you to swipe back?!
This is in addition to them taking away to easily load the direct link in safari, them making it so certain images don’t collapse at the top of threads (ones hosted on their own service) and make it difficult to read comments, and a whole host of other “improvements” that are improvements to nobody.
I honestly just wish this app didn’t change every 36 hours. It seems like every time I open it up there are more buttons, colors, gestures, or font changes to deal with, and none of them make it a better experience.
M3talGuitarist - What Can I Say?
Seriously. What can I say that surely hasn’t been said about Reddit already? It’s awesome how many different communities there are and how many like minded people, or otherwise, you can come across. I wouldn’t personally set this app up differently if I had the opportunity to. Well...currently on the version I just rated, there’s he tiniest, not really all so important thing...When exiting a draft, you don’t have to option to just abandon it. You either have to save and exit or cancel. A large majority of the time, if I’m exiting a draft, it’d because I changed my mind about writing it. There should be an option to delete them outright. Like a said a tiny detail, that is slightly illogical at the worst. Reddit is fr1kn awesome. I use it daily. 11/10 would recommend.
Mzmdw - It's aight
After reading one thread in a subreddit, you've kind of read them all. It seems like it's mainly people in their 20's and early 30's, who sometimes pretend they're older to answer questions posed to an older audience. I fit into that age demographic, but I'm also a mother of teens, so I'm in a different stage of life than a lot of these people. I think most of the users are trying to gain karma, so they start formatting all of their responses to be like ones they've seen are successful. When almost everyone does this, everything sounds like it's been written by the same person, and it gets really, really dull. Variety adds spice to life. It doesn't feel like there are very many different types of "voices", because they're all taking on this persona that gets the up votes. For the first day or two it's fun, but then it kind of isn't.
The stories can be entertaining, and it's nice to kind of have kind of a Pinterest of topics and info, but that's about it.
XanderTM - Can't block subs
Overall great app but it's annoying you can't block subs from the app. I would give it 5 stars if I didn't have to look at another the_donald or enoughtrumpspam post again. So annoying. Update after update this feature seems to be lost which is baffling. You can block subs from the desktop version which transfers to the mobile app but that to me is an unnecessary step. When I messaged the mods about it they said they were "working on it" which it seems like they have for years. Now there's Apollo which is great. I especially love how they bug you periodically about whether or not you love the app. To be honest, I do but this one issue drives me nuts and seems easily rectified yet it isn't so I always just say I do not like the app which is at least partially true. Fix this lone issue I have with the Reddit app and I'll give it 5 stars and a review so sweet you'll get diabetes just reading it. Till then I guess just keep "working" on it.
SexySteven - The app works well enough, but it has a lot of UI issues.
The app is fine enough and I haven’t had any major issues for a long while.
However, there are a lot of issues with some of the User Interfaces.
• If you are using a browser and open a thread from a browser you’d hope that when Reddit asks you to open in the app it’d take you to the thread you wanted to see. However, a lot of the time it just brings you to the apps home page and not to the thread in question. It’s really irritating primarily because the search system in the app isn’t always productive.
• The search is ok for finding subreddits, it’s not useful for finding specific threads.
• When you’re viewing a thread you used to be able to hide comment chains by swiping right. A recent update changed this to now you have to tap to the right of the commenter’s name. If you have a smaller phone it’s very easy to fat finger and go to the users page or just not do anything.
• Looking for a user you aren’t subscribed / following is not intuitive and can be confusing to figure out.
• Right Swiping through threads is great, but really should be only accessible from the top of the page, not when reading comments.
Floofwwe - Great app, mixed community
I really like the concept of Reddit! I like the structure of the site and how subreddits are made. I often find myself trying to find a reddit link whenever I google a question. Unfortunately my main issue resides with the community. There’s some people that are seriously toxic on this platform, so much so that I feel like it shines through other platforms. A common theme I see within these people is “Harass and cyberbully someone if they don’t agree with your opinion, for example, ‘Reddit is the best social media platform.’” This doesn’t apply to every Reddit user, but a spoiled apple ruins the whole basket. This is so much of an issue that there’s a negative stigma surrounding Reddit users, or “Redditors.” These people are depicted as obese grown men who live with their parents who follow the same hivemind, typically one that praise things like Keanu Reeves and the Big Chungus meme, while scorning opposing opinions.

Wateringcan9876 - Annoying new “trending” feature has ruined it
I used to enjoy this app but it has recently introduced a very annoying notification feature to send you an alert about posts that are trending. This wasn’t a feature which enhanced my use of the app in any way, it was just irritating and a waste of time and attention, as I’d have to manually check whether the notification was about a comment reply, an inboxed message, something else I’d actually want to be notified about, or whether it was just that some dumb post on r/showerthoughts was doing well. When I turned the feature off, the app stopped working. Uninstalled and reinstalled without success. Thanks reddit mobile, now I will have to download a competitor’s app instead.
Metal gear yoshi - 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.
heathmb123 - 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!
Mr h muzza - 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. ✌️
T_Bagel - 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
LachyLn - 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
Coedianna - Really good app
The app itself is great, works perfectly fine however, really disappointed with my experience on there. Especially with my first account which displayed I was female that I had to stop using due being attacked or mansplained to, which I did not expect, despite agreeing the majority of the comments and they not attacking anyone else; I was always perfectly friendly on both accounts.
Voting system is absolute rubbish, I understand the need to fuzz them but having them show in the negatives is misleading and deterring. I first thought I was being targeted for no reason despite everyone in the comments enjoying my post, you should think about changing this.
tiktokbadredditgood:) - 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!
Oscar the Chicken Farmer - I really love reddit have have done for 2 years but there are some problems
I have 1 problem with reddit at the moment
1. Reddit coins,
when I started there was only gold and that was fine, it was readable and understandable on what it meant when someone gave it to someone.
Then they added silver and platinum which I wasn’t a fan of at the start but then liked it and like Gold it was understandable on what it meant if someone got it, e.g silver meaning someone gave it something more then an upvote and platinum meaning someone gave this post a lot.
Then they added custom stickers which makes it impossible for me (and maybe others?) to understand what they mean and how much it means, and it’s annoying to see memes and other things as awards,
And now reddit added the coin Icon at the top which is just like an ad you can’t get rid of
TLDR I find the new awards really annoying to look at and hard to understand what value they mean, I wish reddit would only have gold sliver and platinum and only subreddits can ad Custom awards, not reddit
Knowsnot - 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.
MistayBligh - 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.
Happykamper80 - 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!
Rolandrules - 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).
Brant.P - 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.
samfam20 - 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
Joe Minns - Yeesh.
I used to like this app but then I accidentally commented ‘repost’ on a post dissing white teenage girls and got called uncreative, stupid and shaming my parents. I needed a break for my mental health, if you wanna download it, good for you but my suggestion is: stay of r/memes. And only pursue the subreddits that comply with your specific interests. r/hunger games is a great wholesome subreddit for hunger games fans. So parents keep your kids off so they don’t see anything they are not meant to see and just remember every time you post, comment or award you will be risking: being called A series of numerous swear words and a disappointment.
LedzepRulz - Service Review
While most reviews here are about the app itself (which makes plenty of sense), this one is for those of you wanting to dive in to the world of Reddit.
Ever since downloading and starting up an account on Reddit, I have essentially culled all other forms of social media since nothing feels as entertaining and as relevant to me.
Reddit is filled with communities of like minded people who share things relevant only to the community itself - follow as many as you like and have a homepage filled with things that interest YOU.
Comments and posts are rated by the community, the highest rated being featured up top and the lowest rated down the bottom. This means most of what you read are of high quality - either intelligent, witty, funny or generally interesting comments and posts.
Get it. Download it and make an account. Be your best, witty self and share relevant things with people who share common interests with you.
LarzGG - 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.
DumbBunny - Broadly okay, but not a great experience
App reviewed on iPad.
As a long time classic layout desktop user, the app, while perfectly functional, falls really short as a user experience. I don’t believe these are critical flaws with the app, but could be corrected and all would be well. It’s mostly an issue with layout and readability.
The app makes zero use of the iPad screen. In portrait mode, opening a subreddit usually displays two (!) items in a space the could comfortably fit ten, one of which will invariably be an insultingly massive ad, with video auto play and very poor delineation between ads and actual posts.
The general experience is just that, scroll, scroll, ad, ad, the real content gets lost to the eye.p and there’s no way to fix it.
I understand much of this is subjective, but that’s the impression it leaves me with. Frustration, lack of options and poor layout.
Oh, and notifications keeps ‘alerting’ me to random trending things I don’t want no matter how often I tell it I don’t want that. Is it a bug?
VitaKeile - 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?
Silverslade - 4.0.2 No good 😕
I’ve been using the various versions of Reddit for a while now and I have to say the latest update has me scratching my head a bit. Suddenly my home feed is littered with popular posts from subreddits that I’m not subscribed to. Forgive me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that the point of the “Popular” feed?
On top of that, any time I view a picture or gif now it automatically orients into landscape. Quite annoying on mobile. I’ve only been using the app a short while since I’ve updated, so there may be a new setting or something I need to change, but either way this feels like a confusing and unnecessary change.
Dan9876512345463728190 - 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.
7thmonkey - 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.
Vaeh the Vulpix - 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!

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!
RFK19 - 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
RickyRider35 - Better than Facebook
It's a easier to use, more personalised experience that makes you feel like part of a community instead of a mindless follower.
The site is perfectly translated to the smooth app and it is often much more enjoyable to use than other social media, because it's more about news and events that are relevant to you than - well, the social aspect.
ads5114 - Filter option in search bar presents issues
Unfortunately the filter option doesn’t always appear in the search bar while browsing subreddits, making it impossible to organise. When it does appear, the “hitbox” for it is so small that the app usually thinks I want to look up something else through the search bar rather than filter my current search.
Not only that, but the Home page hasn’t been running smoothly lately. I’m often getting “Can’t reach Reddit” messages even though I can still look through different subs.
Mezzomaniac! - Too much data use
I’ve been using this app since it first came out and have been very happy with it until now. All of a sudden a couple of weeks ago (the last update?) it started using way more mobile data than it used to, making it unsustainable for me to keep using. I won’t use it again until this issue is fixed.
100000000000 vbux no reason - Top 5 Best apps EVER, but awards are too much $$
Reddit is my #1 social media app. It has a TON of content, communities, and users, and the only issues I have are:
It is CRAZY hard to get karma and followers, and when you do get followers it doesn’t show up how much you have for other people. Also awards are so expensive, and don’t get me started on reddit premium. Although I do appreciate that ads aren’t pop up or full screen, rather they’re just disguised as post panels
em 🐰 - It’s decent
Just like the title says, I think the app (and by extension, the desktop site) are decent, however it has its flaws.
Firstly, I get a notice saying “Sorry, can’t reach Reddit” every single time I start the app. I tried deleting and redownloading but I’m still having this issue. It also takes a very long time to load.
Additionally, I don’t think this point will be taken into account at all but it’ll be nice if you considered it. Get rid of the downvote button. One thing I’ve noticed in particular is that users tend to use the downvote leisurely, rather than for the reason it’s there in the first place. It’s disheartening when posts that are made with good intentions get downvoted for unexplained reasons.
On a more positive note, I’m completely addicted to this app (and site). It’s where I catch up on all the latest news within my fandoms!
Bookworm 1981 - Problem with uploading video.
Uploading video is problematic. I uploaded a video, then I tried to upload again (different OC) a few hours later however the only vid that he app would allow to upload was a repost of the last vid.
The only way to fix this is to delete the app entirely then re-download and log in.
Apart from that Reddit app is awesomeness!
Jhdhxnskdrhh - App is great but something is missing.
Listen, I love this app. It has opened me up to a whole different side of the web and I love it. The only problem I have with it is that we have been able to save pictures and videos for the longest time.
But yet we still can’t download videos with audio, and instead we need to use a bot or screen record it? Please just let us download the videos with audio already please.
Amberino67 - Kudos
Yes I love this app, but what I love and appreciate more is when reddit has
New updates they’d like us to install... they actually tell us individually what bug fixes or whatever they are fixing( even so we can check if they’ve addressed an issue I was having also) .... instead of being like fb, Netflix, snap and instagrams generic “what’s new”. 👌🏽 a little detail like this I really noticed
A very random google user - Please read.
I really love reddit and enjoy the community and the subreddits but I am disappointed to not be able to have posts i made somewhere I can easily find. I don’t want to go through a subreddit I posted in to find it. Other than what problem. Reddit is awesome, anyone who reads and doesn’t have reddit, you have to get it and join the family. Thank you
Edger2Deadly - Great app
Only signed up a couple of weeks ago and I love it. It was easy to sign up and join groups and it did take a few times before I got the hang of upvotes, downvotes, awarding stars, purchasing reddit coins and commenting. And I never had any problems so far since I’ve signed up and downloaded the app. I dare say I’ll be using this app and enjoying the posts for awhile.
yehrbxjysf - Favourite social media
I got off social media (ahem Instagram) because I felt it was too superficial, people where posting curated artificial projections of “their lives”.
What I love about reddit is that the anonymity allows users to focus on shared interests/hobbies/passions without any preoccupation on how one looks or is perceived. I’ve joined so many diverse subreddits, felt part of an online community, and of course gr8 memes too.
M15510N101 - Not too bad compared to other reviewers’ opinions on the site itself
The official app cops a lot of hate for apparently being terrible and unusable. Not sure why as I’ve had it for 2 years and while there are a few bugs there are work around and either don’t affect me that much or are fixed relatively quickly. Biggest issue are server drop outs but those are site wide. Pretty good app
Odd kid21 - Better platform than Instagram
No stupid bots, better layout and something for everyone. It has communities and ways to connect and the like and Reddit really betters your Instagram experience by a fair margin. Reddit has everything, from subreddits about video games to memes to sports. Plus, Reddit has all the original memes, right? Of course, that wasn’t even a question.
IGotScammed394 - Really Welcoming
People see reddit users as “elitist” dunno why. This community really helps you feel part of something, there has always been somebody who has noticed my posts or seen something I’ve put out. Even though my voice is small it is still welcomed on reddit and it will make you happy to be part of this neat little thing :)
Fin._.fs - Love reddit
The only social media (kind of) app that feels right. I can get what I want when I want, and there’s a wide range of content at your disposal. Whether it be political discussion (retarded or not), Memes, news, stories, advice, reddit has it all. Sure, they’re are problems with some subreddits, but at least they have their own opinion and space to which they can chat,
Skimpywimp - Yeah dawg
Reddit changed my life the day I said to myself Reddit is going to be changing my life. Moment after moment I'm hurled in to a waves of beautiful sweet fantasy land of good good meme action . Heap with a side of laughs and serve with the love ready hot to go. reddit will ease you from your daily misery and into a world where you both don't mean anything and mean everything if I could give it a 10/10 I would . 5stars.
Sitaragrey888888888 - Refresh button/link
Love the app, seen the ups and downs of buggy systems and updates but personally, this is the most annoying. The blue refresh button blocks titles and posts and travels half way down a page, so to read a title you have to drag the screen up, then drag back down to see the photo/link. It doesn’t go away after you scroll for a while, it’s constantly sitting there. I never want to accidently click it. Idk it’s just bad
Aka Cazza - Addictive
Reddit is amazing & addictive. It’s replaced almost all my other internet use. You can be part of any sub you want and find awesome content + links to all your favourite subjects, from peer reviewed science papers to dark humour.
I sound like a bot posting this. So I will say that I’ve heard the other non-offical reddit apps are better, but the website itself is awesome so I’m happy as is.
ianvoyager - Crash upon uploading image
I’ve tried several times to upload an image to a subreddit and each time the app crashes. Upon restarting the app the attempted to upload image post appears in pending posts but refuses to open. The image also is most definitely not in the selected subreddit.
Please update to correct this please!
Qwertyuioppppppp - Reddit Keeps Me In The Know
I am loving Reddit because I am finding out things that I wouldn’t know are happening in the world if I didn’t have this app., and receive its notifications.
Reddit keeps me ‘in the know’ about what people need to know, and comments from other people inform me about what others are thinking about these things.
viskiboschka - Good, but
When I try to post things whether it be photos, videos or text posts. The app will sort of back up in posts where some posts are still “processing media” from months ago, also some posts just refuse to work and all the buttons to either retry uploading it, editing it or canceling the post will overlay on top of one another. Other then that it’s a really good app
awhiskin - Solid app but needs refinement
A lot of weird bugs, such as links not opening, formatting not displaying correctly (e.g. a comment that should be in bold instead displays as *bold*, or superscript text instead just displays like^this). You also can’t manually enter a subreddit name, only search for it which is completely stupid.
I feel as though the creators of this app haven’t really tested it thoroughly as there’s just so many silly design decisions and bugs that I continue to notice update after update that don’t go away.
App Maker 3 - Reddit
Reddit is a really good app because you can see all things that you like, and even good memes if that's what your interested in. I have been using Reddit for a long time and I totally recommend it. There are funny things, cute things, satisfying things etc, it all depends on what your interests are. Not quite the 5 star though. Why? Because I don't believe that any app is ”perfect” but this is pretty close.
WHY DO YOU WANT MY NAME?!?! - Decent app
This is a genuinely good app, although the only downside is that the app has many dead memes on there.
UPDATE: Okay, so after like almost a year of browsing through what reddit has to offer, I feel like that this is app is pretty decent up most. I do also, however enjoy the many sub categories that reddit has.
Løk Løk - Reddit Review
I just don’t get how to post if I ever wanted to and how when I’m swiping on a subreddit I accidentally swipe too much and kicks me off the subreddit and if I want to go back in I’ll have to scroll through until i am back to where I was originally looking at. Instead of swiping to get off the subreddit there should be a button that you press but other than that reddit is rlly good.

Suuuperlame - Great app
Great app, no complaints except they really don't need the notifications in the lock screen.
chefmcduck - 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.
Ssdffhko - 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.
Xplosion0_0 - 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.
Aaron M Green - Best app ever
This app is better than Facebook and Instagram, I assure you. Say goodbye to all your free time though.
pro pker - 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.
anfjkfvikfkr - CRASH PROBLEM
the app doesnt work ! crashes every 30seconds to a minute. my favourite app but man fix the crashing bug
ohh baby its a triple - Awesome
I lik it

Daneffinyell - 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.
shaorspeaks - 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.
Vlurb - Censorship
Reddit deletes subreddits focused on feminism and women’s rights, but allows subreddits about rape fantasies? No thanks
GhostyKristal875 - Reddit hates women
I deleted this application after they banned most of the best feminist subreddits and kept the ones featuring porn, pedophilia and rape.
lalalalalladybird - Reddit hates women
Reddit banned peaceful conversations of women discussing violence against them while keeping literal RAPE SUBREDDITS open
JimmyVermeer - 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.
D13m11 - Piece of garbage
If you want a site that pushes one political agenda and does nothing but spread hate and ban anyone who doesn’t agree with them, then this is the site/app for you
whattheeverlovingf....? - Hates Females
This is an abusive app that happily tolerates men and their rape fantasies while removing anything of feminist content. Porn dick dudes
Spit_Fire66 - Redditard Central
r/PewdiepieSubmissions and other similar subreddits are filled with narcissistic kids who treat reddit like it’s the second coming of Christ.
Abzeydoo - Reddit Hates Women
Why is Apple hosting an app that allows children to access violent rape porn communities and communities that advertise themselves as places for real rapists and child abusers to chat with each other and share their horrid crimes? Why is Apple hosting an app that censors and bans the voices of women, but allows videos of actual women being raped to remain on their platform?
reality is reality - 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.
Ossuarium - Ugh
Super trash. Way too political and toxic. Stay out of this echo chamber.
adre11031234 - 100% better than instagram
OstrichJockey - Cheating
Don’t tell Twitter, but I’m having an affair with Reddit.
Gabe444 - 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
Enderman414 - This app is amazing
It’s just so perfect and really makes me smile
Ka-dawg - Reddit Censorship
Reddit has removed a lot of subreddits that don’t fit into the main stream political ideology. Complete censorship, good bye Reddit!
紫乌 - Toxic Forum & Dishonest Admins
Reddit is the most toxic social forum I have ever seen. The posting and voting system is fraudulent. Moderators and administrators are breaking TOS themselves by encouraging sexism & racism, sending personal threats and shadow banning innocent users.
The app’s rating is also manipulated by deleting the negative reviews. A lot of the five star reviews obviously sound fake. No one would truly believe those words come from real Reddit users.
crgyh6fdrv;ij - Brainwashed
Almost every user is brainwashed in one way or another. Looking through reddit is just seeing a multitude of hive minds.
Gggggappp - New swipe gesture makes the app unusable
Edge swiping now double backs
Littledarkfury - Good App but one bug is annoying
Its a good app, but there is an annoying bug right now when you swipe out of a post it doubles swipes you out of the entire subbreddit and back to the home screen, it is very annoying when trying to go through multiple posts
walter42069 - Humanity is shattered
Reddit maybe the third most toxic place on the internet, besides tumblr and discord. This swamp is dwelling with most vile,egotistical, sjw filth on earth
Wasaga411 - Reddit - cesspool of female hatred and rape fantasy
Reddit has taken the unusual step of deleting feminist subreddits, calling them "hate groups". Maybe women wouldn't have so much to talk about if this app wasn't full of rape fantasies and other assorted misogynistic content.
Hard pass. Deleted.
xxEve - Reddit hates women
Bans feminist threads but allows violent, misogynistic ones
Itsmejoey! - Hard Pass
Reddit removed the best online resource for feminists. Censorship and misogyny. No thanks.
loldriar - Ap should not be required
Had to download the app to read reddit on my phone. Not a huge fan of the amount of reddit censorship either. Only good for getting info then getting out.
Littlemisskpop1358557 - People on this app are mean!
You can’t discuss a topic without getting hateful or condescending comments ! If someone is wrong, just teach facts instead of telling them they are idiots. I thought it would be a great place to learn from each other but it turns out to be full of high school-like bullies, even on innocent topics such as birds or plants🙄
Mr;ME - Reddit first impressions
Very new to Reddit however the communities are great and very inviting. Much prefer it over other social media’s.
patrikolby - It’s reddit
nicebunbun - Reddit love it
Best thing ever
bingadss - Yeah
1000x better than Instagram
try hard artsy teen - an EXTREMELY abusive platform
everybody on here is extremely abusive, rude, and toxic.
Convict25097324 - OMG!!!!
I use and my pp get bigger!!!!!
tobysgarden - No longer the same
Reddit is doing massive censorship of opinions different than their own. Moderators have been editing other people’s comments. They received a $150M investment from a Chinese investor and are clearly becoming more and more a propaganda machine. It’s sad, Reddit used to be a fun place where all opinions were accepted. Not anymore.
aaronm7807 - Great...but...
There needs to be an easy way to block subs and notifications from those subs you’re not interested in. Visit r/sino once and you’re hearing about it “for life”. 🙄
MapOfTheSoul7 - Popular tab isn’t really popular anymore
After the latest update I noticed that the popular tab is full of posts that are more personalized to my location/country, even though I have ALL personalizations turned OFF for ads and recommendations. Instead of seeing the popular/viral posts, I am seeing random posts from subs like r/Winnipeg and r/Calgary when I don’t even live there. Idk what yall did that caused this but this makes me unhappy
ckus0835 - Microtransactions? On MY Reddit app?
Seriously, they added an in-app currency and shop where you can spend money on “Reddit coins”. As if the ads plastered all over the place weren’t bad enough already, now they’ve gone and done THIS. Sad to see a site I’ve enjoyed for years give into the greed and monetize the Reddit experience for as much money as possible. Next thing you know, they’re going to start charging money to buy upvotes.
My advice is, don’t get this app. There are other options available on the App Store that do just a good a job as this one, if not better, and aren’t full of blatant greed in the form of monetization.
TrashmanTrist - Horrible new changes
I have only been getting posts from Canadian subreddits on my popular page even though I am set to global. This change is terrible. If I wanted to see only those subs I would subscribe to them. Please change this.
Argghhhgghh - Regional posts on popular “hot” “global” page
What happened? Reddit is basically unusable in its intended/old form. I can no longer scroll the Popular page by “Hot” “Global” without a bunch of annoying posts from my country. No I don’t care about posts with a few hundred upvotes about a city that is over 1000km away from me. I follow subreddits to see regionally specific content I am interested in and would like my memes back please
SimonBirch - They’ve removed sort by controversial.
Look, I understand that “controversial” shows the worst of Reddit at times, but removing this option is wrong. You can no longer see other points of view, only the most agreed upon. This was a garbage move, and a dangerous move towards censorship.

emily2325568 - Search function is lacking
First of all, every time I want to search something on reddit I’ll go directly to Google to type in whatever search query I have followed by “reddit.” The in-app search function is entirely useless and often brings me to posts with few upvotes that vaguely have to do with whatever I’m searching for.
Secondly, whenever I do click on a google search’s reddit post on my phone, it will ask me to open up the web page in the app instead. That’s fine and all, but what happens when I press “open in app”? You’ve guessed it - it will take me to the app store (even though I’ve already downloaded the reddit app), and open up to the reddit home page. In the end, I can’t even view the original post i intended to read within the app.
Acrocoachtracy - Why is it you feel like you have censorship power?
You will let people describe horrific acts of cruelty, depravity, and violence... but you censor political voices you don’t agree with. Shameful fascists. Deleting you. You should be canceled. Holding you responsible for ruining our constitutional right to free speech. The sheeple who agree with your censorship are Useful idiots who don’t get it... but there are many of us out here who do... and you can try silence us.... but we won’t be shutting up for long. We are the workers and producers and the taxpayers in this country. We are mothers and fathers . You don’t care about freedom you want to suppress and oppress.... and these idiots who keep your app, will be begging for their own enslavement by a corrupt bloated government. That they think will give them free crap. But it’s not free... the govt has no money. It’s taxes... and they will sit on welfare and get whatever the benevolent govt thinks they need..and nothing more... the elites and HOLLYWOOD and Reddit owners don’t care about citizens... they are out for control.
Jeff Morrissette - Spotty Performance
When Reddit works, it's great. There's a sub for everything, I moderate a sub, I spend hours browsing. But every other day or so it decides to not work, and all I get is a "sorry, try again later" message and nothing loads. So nearly half of the time, the app is completely unusable.
The other thing is that in the last year the amount of censorship on Reddit has skyrocketed. While they've made some progress in cracking down on racists and Neo-Nazis, they take two steps in the opposite direction by censoring stories about the Chinese government. Some of this could come down to the fact that hundreds of subs are run with an iron fist by a total of 12 moderators.
Until they sort out the technical issues plaguing their mobile app and fix their broken moderation system to allow more people to participate in running the content, 3 stars is all they get from me.
EthanEEF100$ - Fix the issues and allow mobile to be a legitimate alternative to browser
I like Reddit mobile but its issues are too abundant and it’s features too limited to be a legitimate alternative to Reddit on browsers. One of the biggest issues is that the home page will break for no reason, Popular and News will load but Home Page will not. Another issue is the limits on mobile, you can only name and add a description when making a subreddit, custom votes are light mode only, editing flairs enables light mode even though it’s more than possible to do it in dark mode (in fact going to the home menu then back to Reddit while editing a flair will automatically switch back to night mode making even less sense as to why you’re forced to use light mode while editing flairs), and you can’t turn off the recommended/trending subreddits tab from appearing in your homepage.
Bjbraboy - Reddit Everything!!!! 🥳👌🏾😍
Have you ever heard someone say the term “I read it on Reddit”. That’s me since I started using Reddit at the beginning of the year. Originally I got it in 2017 and didn’t truly understand how it worked. I redone loaded the app because I wanted to increase my motivation /get better mental health with a likeminded group of people AWAY from standard social media and this app DELIVERED and more. I get everything I want. I can be entertained and learn something in the same feed and I actually LOVE what I see EVERY time. I have no regrets. I love Reddit. They have a channel for everything and the people are (usually) really supportive, informative and hilarious. I love that I can go there to interact with real people all over the world and it’s not weird. I love it. 10/10 recommend!
Sir Bigglesworth - Sad
Most moderators of reddit seem very-much to be biased, ignorant, uninformed/uneducated, and just plain disheartening people. If reddit moderators could remove themselves from the idea of being arbitrators of morality and just allow people to talk and share their thoughts and ideas (differing ideas are good, - damning people’s ideas/posts because they’re different than yours/what has been deemed as “acceptable” when there’s actually nothing wrong with the idea except that it’s different than yours/is not deemed “acceptable,” is horrible) then the idea of Reddit could continue to enjoy it’s success and avoid withering away on the vine.
Keep Reddit and it’s potential pure, avoid any role in ‘political’ moderation and only screen for statements that are TRULY hate-filled (not just different from your views). There CAN be the complete absence of hate or anything along those lines while simultaneously having differing ideas/viewpoints - just think about it for a bit.
RainyCrap - Great social networking app, just one little irk
Reddit is a very diverse and good app for a vast mix of different topics and people. You download it, make an account if you feel like it, and find the communities that appeal to you. I enjoyed Reddit a lot because I could post questions and get answers from different people, I could also throw in my opinions and advice.
The only problem I really have with it is that I have to wait so long between comments. Once I comment on something, I can’t just move onto the next thing. I have to wait at least 8 minutes before I can say anything. I understand the worry about spam, it is completely understandable, but it would be nicer if I could post 4 or 5 comments/questions before getting restricted.
Otherwise, this is a nice community and wonderful place to answer/ask questions or make statements. I hope Reddit continues to improve.
-Blox- - Censorship
This app is terrible for free speech. Do not use reddit if you want to talk about anything different from the mainstream narrative. Orange man bad, BLM, abortion good, transgender children good, LGBTQ+ good, etc. are the only opinions allowed on this app. You can get banned from subreddits you’ve never been on because the moderator of them doesn’t like your political stance, it’s ridiculous. You also can’t support the Hong Kong protesters or talk negatively about China in any way because daddy spez got funded by them.
It has good communities for games that have nothing to do with politics or social issues, e.g., Minecraft or DND, but it’s an awful place for trying to have a civil debate with someone. Most likely any attempt at civil discussion with the users of this platform will end up with you getting called a bigot, homophobe, transphobe, etc. or even banned from the subreddit if a moderator doesn’t like your beliefs.
The bottom line is: do not get this app or use this platform unless you don’t care about your opinions being censored.
3koolboys - A story of reddit
One day in my future you are going to read this and by then the war between revenge of the Sith (which by now is the United States national movie) and the original trilogy. All the odds were against r/prequelmemes (the army of the prequels (revenge of the Sith)) 3 movies to 1 but what the OTs (original trilogy) didn’t know is the power of r/prequelmemes was beyond theirs. Though the OT aided r/prequelmemes in their battle against avengers endgame (which we came out victorious) r/prequelmemes needed to fight back against the OT because they had surrounded us but since we were r/prequelmemes we knew the power of cloning we had cloned ourselfs and overwhelmed the OT coming out on top. What I’m trying to say is the war between r/prequelmemes and the OT was won by us due to reddit. (PS the future may very depending on Russia’s actions.)
A disatisfied user - Performance of the App
RaevynReaper - Much better than it used to be
I’ve been around Reddit for a few years and I love it. It took a while to find an app I really liked and when I did, I ended up switching to iPhone and it was no longer available. I was a little upset, but settled with this app. I figured it’s the “official” app, so it must be good.
At the time, that was a huge lie. Now, with the improvements on theme and UI, it’s my favorite. Only complaint right now is that gifs and videos will only work the first two or three posts. After I’ve seen just a couple, they no longer load. This is a newer issue to me and I’ve only seen it over the last couple of weeks. Mildly irritating as gifs and videos make up a large part of my favorite subreddits.
Hope it gets fixed soon. If so, I’ll definitely bump up to a 5 star rating.
the_noble_1 - Communism, censorship, and radical, regressive politics
reddit claims to be a news or social media app, but in reality it is an echo chamber for regressive politics, disgusting fetishes, and horrifying ideas. Anyone left of Mao or Stalin is a “literal nazi” on reddit, and while even centrist views are removed or downvoted, anything pro communist or socialist will be treated as gospel. Ever since being acquired by chinese investors, any criticism of the ccp is instantly removed, but death threats against American politicians or law enforcement officers not only remain, but get hundreds of upvotes, encouraging hatred and violence.
The upvote system is objectively the worst method of discussion, and results in every single sub being an echo chamber where discussion is impossible and everybody can reenforce their extremist beliefs with other regressives. Any “wrong think” is downvoted or removed, and free speech is completely impossible. Do not download this app. Save the data and free time and do something productive instead. There are many better social media apps and thousands of more reliable news sources.
omghibird - Amazing format, nearly no bugs, but indeed it has some flaws.
Reddit is an amazing format. It has subreddits that are frankly hilarious, stupidly hilarious, ridiculously interesting, or just exposing trashy people. I loved this subreddit a lot and I felt as if I can connect to it, the people are fairly kind too, and civilized. You can even post on any subreddit and get upvotes, this leads to Karma which is like Instagrams Follower’s count but nearly 800x better. However, there is a very big hive mind vibe I get from the people there, in certain subreddits you can’t really express your opinion if it’s unpopular. There is a subreddit for that though, one where you can get Karma! Another error is that when you have a stable WiFi connection, the app refuses to connect. However, restarting the app may work, it’s still a very annoying bug.
Stephen Kahlig - Reddit Saves
I absolutely love being able to communicate and share things with like minded people. The “Karma” system doesn’t make sense for the platform sometimes because some people have unpopular opinions and that gets translated into bad karma on Reddit. This gets in the way of people’s individualism, I think. Also, I can’t respond to more than one post inside of the same few minutes, sometimes. Reddit reject my response and send me a message saying, “You’re doing that too much.” What am I doing too much? Giving advice to people who need and have asked for it? Answering questions that I happen to know the answers to? It’s a great idea with a problematic execution. I use it every day because it’s the community that makes it all worth while.
Kate Rose Tyler - I like this app...except for one thing
I would love to be able to give gold on this app, I see at least one comment every day that makes me laugh because it's clever or funny and I'd love to gild it, but I can't! It's so frustrating! So I'm knocking off a star for that.
The actual app I quite like, I have night mode on all the time and it's only crashed a handful of times. I can count the times on one hand. Yeah the UI switch of collapsing comments without letting us know was annoying but I figured it out. people will complain about anything.
The general functionality is great, I like it just fine. the messages tab is actually way better then the desktop version. actually I just like the mobile version better than the desktop version, the desktop version is overwhelming to me and kind of unorganized but on mobile I do miss the creative subreddit banners. I like the cut-and-dry UI though, no fancy embellishments, just text. maybe I'm boring.
moral of this story: PLEASE add the ability to give gold to this mobile app. that's my major complaint. honestly it's kind of ridiculous that the OFFICIAL Reddit app doesn't have that functionality ???? that's just bizarre to me
pumom11 - Always lose where I was in a sub
I used to read my favorite subs on my phone in the browser, sort by top post of all time and start reading one by one. And the browser of course always remembers where I am in the sub so I can go back to it later and just continue reading where I left off.
Now I HAVE to install the app to read reddit subs on my phone and the app always resets my position in the sub so the next time I open the app I am just on the homepage so I have to again look for the sub I was reading, sort the posts and scroll forever to try and find where I was. Not to mention sometimes I leave the app while I’m inside a post and still the next time I open the app I’m on the homepage so I don’t even know which post I was reading. This is a ridiculously bad experience for an app whose primary purpose is reading!!! Imagine if every time you open a book you’re reading you have to start from the beginning and look for the page you were on. Insane.
gsriikkkkkkoooooooooooooooo - Best social media, worst social media.
I deleted all the apps, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, you know. The ones where everyone is always arguing and are entirely drama and click ran. I was immediately happier checking it through Safari occasionally to check on friends and not having to look at it constantly. But alas, a life without media is almost impossible in this day and age. I downloaded this app, where you curate the exact kind of content you want to see, you unsub to what begins to annoy you, find something new every day. You sort it by “top,” “hot,” or “new” and the like. It’s amazing. Pure entertainment, some thoughtful discussion, some trolling, but an overall lighter experience than what you find through other media experiences. A great app.
TheEpic Grizly - It’s okay.
I had my account and was gaining a fair amount of subs. One day I went to do my daily uploads and I was logged out. I tried using my password but couldn’t get it to work so I tried resetting it. I reset the password and tried using the new password and it was still saying wrong password. So I contacted support and never received an email back. I’m very displeased with how there system treats a password reset. I should of at least got a response by now. I’ve also tried resetting the password after contacting them and completely did something different with no luck. I would not recommend reddit because I can’t access my account. Besides that the app works great that’s why they get 3 out of 5 stars. But if you have the chance to loosing your account what’s the point of spending 100 days posting, so you can just loose everything...
JoeyMG49 - Took Alien-Blue and changed it into garbage.
Seriously you had a perfectly good app that worked very well with minor bugs. Now with all the updates and UI changes, the app has become more difficult to use.
List of problems created because of changes
- Ads pop up every other post to every 3 posts.
- videos sometimes load improperly or if you rewind on a video you loose all sound.
- gifs load improperly if at all also you guys took away the length bar of the gif to see how long it was.
- commenting UI pretty much died. If I reply to a comment and need I look at the comment I’m replying to for reference, I can no longer do it.
- account information disappears and I need to relogin sometimes.
- using my location for to find post near me? Why? If I’m not interested in a certain subreddit I don’t need to see the post just because someone within a mile posted it.
- suggested subreddits based on other subreddits I’m subscribed to? If your taking my location you should know I’m not going to subscribe to another’s cities sports team.
So today was the final straw. I went to watch a movie trailer on the app and of course no sound. I tried it on the mobile website and works fine.
When your app underperforms compared to its mobile site you’re doing things wrong. I am moving to another app to try to find something that resembled the Alien Blue platform that worked so well.
espg47 - I personally love reddit, here’s why.
Reddit is an amazing app that is easy to use. It has many different uses like news, entertainment and just all around interacting with others. There are different “subreddits” which are communities people can join. Each subreddit has its own style and focus topic. There are subreddits for memes, news, investing, animals, and anything else you can think of. Just search it up and check the communities section of search. My favorite part of reddit is the ease of use. Very easy to use and people will band together and do crazy stuff on reddit. That whole 1.3 stars for tik tok is an example of what the reddit community will do every so often, it’s like a Tuesday for us!
10/10 app would download again.
Disheartened555 - 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.
Bee70653 - I like it
I think reddit is a great way to broaden horizons and see what other people think, like, and come up with. It’s a great place for new ideas and also is the only social media I know of where people can actually discuss opposing view points without being mean or disrespectful. Many of the people who comment and share are educated and actually know a bit of what they are talking about. MUCH better than people sharing opinions on Facebook. My only complaint is that the news associated groups are definitely biased in one direction. Particularly r/news. It’s clear if you disagree with something on there and even state it respectfully the individual monitoring or all won’t approve your post if it doesn’t follow their agenda. That I don’t like and therefore I don’t rely on reddit for news updates.
Ribbit793 - Would love easy access to hiding
While I’m very happy with the new visual experience, this app doesn’t really fit my style of browsing reddit and so I still use a third party app most of the time.
The biggest feature I want is an easy way to hide posts. I hide all posts I’ve viewed so that I don’t run into issues with the app refreshing and suddenly I’m back at the top of a long line of posts I’ve already read. In this app I have to tap multiple items to hide a post and it’s not a comfortable workflow for something I’m doing on every post. In the app I use regularly I can just swipe the post to like or dislike and then swipe the other way to hide. It’s very simple and quick for me to keep browsing. If you had some functionality involving swiping the post left and right or if there was at least a hide button that would be nice.
Consumer or Worlds - A great app if you have the right opinions
Reddit is a great place to find information regarding a hobby or finding groups of people you can talk to that share similar interests. This makes me all the more disappointed to have to write this review, and give a 1-star. The day this was written, Monday, June 29th, was the final straw for me. Today many communities were banned for wrongthink, despite complying with the rules. This is just the most recent event in Reddit’s decline into censorship. I am not writing this out of anger towards the administrators of the site, but out of disappointment due to another bastion of free speech turning to dust. If you want a place to find groups of hobbyists or maybe a place for solving a problem, then reddit is a good place for you. If you are looking to find a place to freely share your opinion with likeminded people, then you better hope the admins agree with your opinion. If you want a place to talk without censorship, I recommend an alternative like ruqqus.
tinyyawns - Great community
There’s a subreddit for everything. I’m currently subscribed to one for weight loss and one for make up. The homepage is great for funny or interesting posts. But there’s hundreds more for different hobbies and interests. The community is hilarious and welcoming. There’s some rules and a lot of new lingo to learn, but there’s always a mod or member willing to answer as well as guidelines that spell everything out for you. My only complaint is that it seems you have to know the subreddit name to find your interest, you can’t just type keywords into the search bar to find them. I’m still new so maybe there is a way to use keywords that I just haven’t figured out yet. For now, I just Google, “(interest) reddit” to find the popular subreddits.
Me111111223457 - Notifications Don’t Work Correctly
While I do like the app, I end up getting notifications and messages about random forums. What’s most frustrating is that I don’t get any notifications about the forums I’ve ACTUALLY joined and turned on notifications for. Each time I get a notification I go into the forum to ensure I haven’t accidentally joined it and turned on notifications and sure enough I never have. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled, reset my phone, nothing has worked to fix this issue. I ended up blocking reddit from sending notifications and now I just go in once in a while to see if my first couple of minutes of perusal of my forums provides anything interesting. I used to use the app a lot more when I actually got the notifications for what’s trending in my chosen forums but now I use it a lot less. So I guess that works.
DrDiceandDrDomino - Good App but The comment System
The main reason I downloaded this app just for memes and for entertainment and it does a very good job at doing it with its subreddits. You can find almost any type of subreddit no matter about how specific you are! But here’s the bad thing about it. The comment system; The comment system is where you can only Post 1 COMMENT every 7 minutes which is pretty annoying if you really wanna comment something that you know is gonna get some likes especially for subreddits like r/roastme or something similar to that. There are probably a million of these exact same comments but I would give this 5 stars if the comment system wasn’t what it was. I understand that they are trying to avoid posts from getting spammed on but this is just an annoying and awkward way of preventing that from happening
Chasing H2O - Best source for pure enjoyment!
I absolutely love Reddit and all the options to join subreddits that match my interest! My family is annoyed with my constant promotion of Reddit to family, friends and just about any other living being I encounter! It has brought me more laughter than I can count! It has taught me how creative and sarcastic other Redditor's respond to post. Reddiquette and Reddit language took me a little while to figure out but now I’m getting most of it! Reddit is a nightly evening ritual to check out and my subreddits! I have forwarded so many subreddit post to my family via text that unfortunately they now never open my links to the subreddit post! Anyway, I thank Reddit for making my life more enjoyable and entertaining!
HappyRhino - “Sort by Controversial”
This has been my favorite app for years now, but they just removed one of my favorite features: the “Sort by Controversial” filter. This filter used to sort posts and comments so that you could quickly find the more polarizing parts of a given subject. Often times, due to Reddit being a left-leaning site, the more controversial points relate to right-leaning political opinions, at least in the US. While I do like Reddit’s general policy of censoring hate speech, this seems like a step too far. If a post or comment is downvoted enough, it is unlikely to ever be seen after its buried by newer ones.
I am firmly a leftist, and I like Reddit for purging the more harmful and offensive content from their platform. But this is a step toward user homogeny that I think would seriously take away from the what makes the site special.
Karma allows you to see the users’ feedback to every submission on the site, which is great, unlike Twitter and other sites where you can only see how many people “liked” you post due to a lack of a visible “dislike” count.
But if your opinion was unpopular on Reddit, at least people could still find it, and your voice could be heard. Now, on mobile, all you can see is either what’s newest or what’s popular.
johnny.blaze.23 - Amazing
I really enjoy this app. You can literally find your own little community of like minded individuals and converse about a topic and hear a bunch of interesting perspectives on things. My only complaint is theres a comment limit, for some unknown reason. If you hit a certain amount of comments in a short period of time, you’ll have to wait a estimated time of 8-12 mins which becomes annoying if you have a fast flowing timeline & you finally get a groove going with all your communities. Also you cant check who follows you or when they follow you, which is very creepy. Im not asking to view other peoples following/follower list but considering its my own I don’t see why i cant view such a thing. other than that though app is solid & totally recommend
TheBlobicorn - The app is good, but the community is toxic
You’re probably thinking something along the line of, “It can’t be as bad as other social media platforms,” but you’d be oh so wrong. If Twitter is an echo chamber then Reddit is the same person talking to themselves in an asylum. If Instagram is full of “reposts” then Reddit is looking at the same meme for weeks on end. If Facebook is all about trying to flex then Reddit is literally dick measuring to see who’s best. Reddit has fallen as a platform and it’d be best for anyone who hasn’t been on Reddit to avoid it like the plague. If you thought you’d be coming here to find something not moderated by one entity you’d still be wrong. The top communities on Reddit are all monitored by the same people and saying anything about it will leave you with a temporary ban. So if you want to hear and see the same thing over and over, and to constantly feel less than others, all while being moderated by nazis, then you’ve come to the right place.
JackSama.exe - All About the Community
Reddit is such a great app because it relies on its community for all of its content, and there are so many subreddits (or smaller communities) to choose from so you can find out where you fit into it all. This definitely can be a downside, as you will come across arguments left and right on Reddit, but it’s just human nature. Plus, you tend to see less of these arguments when you find communities that have similar interests as everyone tends to be on the same page. For example, r/entitledparents is a subreddit about parents who are overly entitled to themselves or their children to a point where they act like fools sometimes. The community on this subreddit almost never argues on the side of the EP (entitled parent) because the community is specifically against that side of the argument. I would recommend Reddit to all people seeking not only ways to find people who you can relate to, but people who are seeking more confidence. As you post more often, you become more confident in what you post and put more reasoning behind your comments. Sometimes that confidence can earn you awards from other users! Thank you for reading this review, and I hope you enjoy Reddit as much as I do!
DR casa 5K - Needs 1 major fix
I’ve used the Reddit app quite a bit recently as I hoped it was better or more streamlined than the website’s mobile version. I use Reddit for just about everything as it’s a great resource. However, my big personal thing it’s lacking is the ability to go landscape when reading a post or article. I’m sure it sounds petty to some, and that’s why it had a 4* instead of giving it a 1* for the attention. It isn’t a bad app at all, but I read a lot of things landscape and I’m surprised that isn’t a feature at the time of me writing this. I’ll keep the app on my phone for now and maybe there will be an update to add the feature later down the road. But, for me, that’s what I feel it’s lacking that could improve it quite a bit.
The hobbit eman - Love reddit but recent update causes the app to freeze a lot more.
so as my title says, the reddit app is great and i love using it, however, ever since the recent update, sometimes when I tap on a post, generally one with an image, the app freezes and doesn’t crash but is just frozen. the only way i have found to get it to fix is to close the app all the way down and restart it. would love for this bug to be fixed because I really like reddit and sometimes i’ll scroll really deep into the best post page and then the app will freeze and I have to restart and lose my progress if you will. other then that the app runs pretty smooth and is by far my favorite social media. if the bug is fixed, and i don’t discover a new one, i’ll bring my rating up to 5 stars.
laughingwiseman - Once a good app made worse with every update
Today I finally uninstalled the official Reddit app. The straw that broke the camel's back, as with all straws, was an otherwise-insignificant but moderately annoying thing. If you don't allow the Reddit app to send notifications, it permanently shows you an unread message when you open the app.
What had driven my frustration up to this point was primarily the inability of the user to completely disable certain "features" — like irrelevant recommended communities, or the ever-annoying auto-playing data-hogging RPAN video feed. Worst of all was when the RPAN feed, something I had not subscribed to and cannot turn off, filled a whole block with a live broadcast of pornography. This is obviously against the RPAN TOS, but when it comes from a community I did not select into and did not want to view, pornographic or not, it's egregious.
Reddit won't let me enjoy Reddit the way I want to anymore. So, it is goodbye.
KevinIsaiah - Terrible
Seriously one of the worst apps I have ever used. Even when it saves my notification preference and clearly states I won’t receive any I got constant notifications. I have to manually disable everything I post to avoid this app giving me a notification.
Beyond that, no matter how many times I select stay in browser on the mobile site, it force opens the app. If I uninstall the app it force opens the App Store to download it. Sometimes I don’t WANT to use the app because I think the entire UI is bad, but god help me if I have a reddit thread open on my browser it will immediately launch the app and KEEPS RELAUNCHING AFTER I FORCE CLOSE.
I genuinely believe all the 4+ star reviews are bots or paid reviews because this is the worst social media app I have ever used, worse even than tumblr that may not load a single imagine half the time but is merciful enough to not force launch the app if I happen to click an image in browser hosted by the site.
Stephanie H12 - BLM
Everyone is furious about the icon color change but not taking action to reform and uproot the police system in America that is based on oppression and systematic killing of people of color. I am an American citizen and I am smart enough to know we need to change. Thank you Reddit for standing with us. ALL LIVES WILL MATTER ONCE BLACK LIVES MATTER. If you have 5 kids and one kid gets cut, do you give a bandaid to all 5 kids? No, because that kids pain is more severe and the other kids are not injured. No one said your life as a white person did not matter, (AllLivesMatter is stupid and takes away from the pain and troubles of the BLM Movement) but one is more severe. George Floyd died for no reason but rampant racism and bigotry in the police system. BLM. RIP. ACAB.
Mcrl0v3rrr - New “quarantine” feature blocks access to subreddits I’m subscribed to
Reddit has slowly been turning away from its roots and towards a more mainstream-friendly social media app. They’ve recently quarantined several offensive and shocking subreddits which means mobile users have no access to them whatsoever.
You can access them via computer after you choose to proceed after getting a “this sub has been quarantined” warning. But I never use Reddit on a computer, and there’s no setting to allow quarantined subreddits to be unlocked within this app. I shouldn’t be locked out of content I’m subscribed to period. I understand the website has every right to censor what they will, but taking content away from the people subscribed to it is taking it too far.
I hope others will voice their concerns with this new feature and at least get Reddit to implement a setting to allow users to unlock quarantined subreddits on mobile.
Mreeves336 - Poor notification system. Image posts
I don’t know what’s going on and I thought the issue would be fixed but I have literally had the same issue for years. I am never able to click on a Reddit notification and just be taken to the post I was notified about. NEVER. It only takes me to my post and shows no comments to where I then I have to back out and click on the notification inside of the app. EVERY. SINGLE. NOTIFICATION. There’s no way something as core as that should not work well???? I have to fight to get to whatever I’m being notified about every single time.
I’m glad we can post multiple photos now but if the maximum amount of characters is 300 for image post, then why don’t you have a counter telling us how many characters we have? I literally have to copy and paste my text into a character counter on Google to figure it out. It’s weird how we have to use other resources like imgur to enjoy reddit fully
shelydued - Great place to hang, just trying to get message to dev
Hey dev, whoever you are, I have downloaded what you say will be the last update for iOS 10 and I am experiencing random crashing of the app now. Could you possibly give us one more update to fix this before you ditch iOS 10? I'd really hate to update my phone and lose the great battery life, and have the useless control center toggles that don't actually turn stuff on or off, the ones that just disconnect.
Edit: also, videos and gifs aren't working anymore. I can click play on a video and it just flashes then give me the play arrow again and for the longest time, most gifs wouldn't load, well now none of them do.
Thanks for your time.
sunset_luster - Dude. Not cool.
I know someone on the internet who was super funny and chill that got a suspension from Reddit because of a literal nom harmless joke. People that make suicide jokes and school shooting jokes get upvotes and funny hahas but a harmless joke gets you suspended from Reddit as a whole? She’s really stressed out about the situation and you still haven’t answered her on why. I’m really disappointed on Reddit as a whole and I’m really angry at you guys. I really don’t appreciate the amount of bias and the bad acts and choices you’ve been making for the community. I don’t appreciate the new system I’m Reddit either. Congratulations Reddit, you ruined Reddit. I don’t recommend downloading reddit for how much they changed, but if being suspended for making a harmless joke and people are making literal jokes about murder, then go for it. Reddit isn’t going to help you. Them not replying to my friend is proof of that. I used to like Reddit but it’s changed so much. It’s as toxic as Twitter and TikTok now.
Redditor04729 - Clicking on picture glitch
Overall, Reddit itself is very customizable and there’s a subreddit for just about anything. A huge problem is that when clicking on pictures and then backing out, my feed will be set to a random post and when I scroll it loads in a completely random place in my feed. This is very annoying as it happens about 50% of the time I click on pictures straight from my feed. If I click on the post then the picture the problem happens way less often. Sometimes it loads past a bunch of posts, sometimes it goes very far back and makes me scroll for a while to get back to the spot I was originally in. While this isn’t a big deal, after a while it can become very frustrating.
MCRIDETHIS - The only app you’ll ever need
Reddit is the zeitgeist of the internet. Communities are born and shaped here. While trying to balance quality content with a clean UI in this wide of a scale is nearly impossible, I feel that the Reddit app does exactly what it sets out to do and more.
While improvements need to be still made for the app, I feel that the app is a more efficient and more satisfying to browse than either of the website versions.
I’ve tried other Reddit apps, but they just don’t have the same seamless feel to me. Only on this app can I immerse myself in the world of Reddit as I see fit. There is a reason that Reddit is growing so much. I don’t think I’ll ever stop using Reddit. It is everything I need it to be.
<> - Love it! Great App
I’ve found reddit to be an overall wonderful and honest community. People on Reddit are quite quick to call out others for bigotry and general BS, which is great sometimes, not always. The App itself is more visually customizable than most, which is nice. I prefer dark mode. You can also edit the layout posts appear in, which is cool. Making new accounts if needed for privacy and etc is very easy as well. Overall pretty great app, though I’ve heard of some extremely unsavory subreddits that were reported being sustained despite obvious abuse taking place there, which is very disheartening and scary. However, as long as you stay off those subs, you’ll be fine. Hope it stays around.
shopgirl517 - Unreasonable Mods
Got in a argument with someone on a sub (on a different account than my main account) as a result I got banned then that changed into a full on suspension when I tried to reason with the mods, so I was like whatever I’ll just use my main account. Totally forgot about the whole situation because 2weeks had past, then this morning I went on the app to see that my main account has been PERMANENTLY suspended over a comment I made on a different account 2 WEEKS ago, I have had this account for YEARS
So I tried to talk to a mod or really anyone who could help and to my surprise I couldn’t get a hold of ANYONE to ask them to help....
So now I can’t even use the app because the app will block me from trying to do anything and I just want to cry because I have had my account for years and to lose it over somthing that happened on a completely different account shouldn’t be possible and somthing needs to change.
buchanarama96 - Dope.
I’ve seen people use Reddit as long as it has been around, but I’ve never had the itch to download and use it for myself. Now, I’m seeing why folks like it so much. First and foremost, being the big wrestling fan I am ( yes I know it’s scripted, still love it ), it has some rad stuff dedicated to that, and now I’ve loaded more threads, pages on there. Some dedicated to food, recipes, memes, sports like mma, football, both college & national. Other funny stuff, it’s all just wonderful experience. It’s a lot like message boards, that for a while died out, but with Reddit they’re making a comeback. So, yeah, hope this helps anybody that maybe wanting to download this application. It is fun, and you’re not gonna regret it! Cheers!
Wmainard - Best way to share what your doing
It’s kind of a social media but it’s really not. People use it mostly for ideas so it’s not for popularity. Also there is no dislike. There is a down-vote button but it doesn’t dislike the post. It just lowers the number of upvotes (how u like a post) so there is no negativity or any notification saying so-and-so disliked your post. So there is no judgment. Except people can comment on your post and it can be negative but the reddit community is usually there to help. Advice: even if somebody comment rudely do not worry about them. They are just jerks who are arrogant and nobody likes them and they feel better to insult people. So don’t feel bad. Anyway reddit is awesome and overall a friendly community. People hoping to get it will enjoy it for sure.
Woohooguy - Please fix "open in app imgur bug"
Pretty good app. It's mostly functional, but sometime during the last week for some reason trying to open imgur images in the imgur app no longer works. When you click on the open in app, while viewing the image in the reddit browser, instead of opening the app, it jumps to a page saying "the official imgur app ...." which describes it a little bit. Opening in a browser asks you to open the App Store as if I don't already have the app. And yes I know for certain I have the app. If I go to the App Store via the link and click open it works, but it's a hassle. Please fix this. It was so much more convenient to be able to go directly between the two apps. It was working just fine about a week ago.
1BlessedGuardian - Awful
My god I hate this app. It doesn’t want to load sometimes. My biggest issue is the videos or gifs. You’ll press play and after FINALLY loading, they’ll pause with the audio still playing and half the video frozen in place and warped. It will do that on almost all of them if it starts too. You’ll have to close the app down completely to stop it. sometimes if you’re in the middle of watching something and walk away from your phone and your phone goes to screensaver mode, it will kick you out of the app completely. This app is utter garbage and I’ve been using it for awhile. I never make reviews but I want to make everyone aware of its issues. Use something else for reddit like Reddit is Fun, Apollo, or Bacon Reader. They’re much better.
rasco13 - I wanted it to be good
I really wanted the official reddit app to be good. Today I have to take it off my phone. Coming from the wonderful time of alien blue into the Reddit app took some time getting used to. After using it since it was first released on iOS, until today, it has not been an enjoyable time. I will say that it does have the right intentions and the accessibility that any user would want. With that being said, it still has so much to fix. Long loading times, freezing, crashing, and preferring cell data over wifi are the small things that have never gone away and occur frequently. So much time has passed and lots of nice features have been added but stability is not one of them. I hope that it stays in the direction of improvement, but for myself I will be looking for another app.

Facebook finally makes Asgard's Wrath free for all #OculusQuest2 owners,and in sharing this decision it has highlighted my Reddit post with Conor Conrad's meme about the matter
