Fake news, echo chambers and unconscious bias. How do you get out of a filter bubble if you don’t know you’re in one? Enter Burst.
For everything in your feed, Burst finds reposts all over reddit and intelligently merges the comments together. This helps you see things from other perspectives to foster a more open mindset.
If a link in your feed is reposted across r/apple, r/iphone, r/technology and r/android, Burst merges them all into a single discussion. Links posted to r/politics, r/conservative, and r/liberal are combined to help break down filter bubbles you might be stuck in.
The applications Burst for reddit was published in the category News on 2018-03-22 and was developed by Alex Duckmanton. The file size is 10.01 MB. The current version is 1.15 and works well on 9.0 and high ios versions.
Vertically-scrolled comments are here! If you're not a fan of paging through comment threads horizontally, there's now a setting to turn that side to side into an up and down. And because I'm so nice I've also included a handy extra button to jump to the next comment thread in the list. Enjoy!
Also in this update is a little performance enhancement. You might notice swiping in and out of the comments is a little smoother.
