RedReader

Client for reddit.com

An unofficial client for the news site reddit.com.

  • Swipe posts left and right to perform customizable actions, such as upvote/downvote, or save/hide.
  • Advanced cache management - automatically stores past versions of posts and comments.
  • Streaming - shows posts/comments as they download - good for slow connections.
  • Support for multiple accounts.
  • Two-column tablet mode (can be used on your phone, if it's big enough)
  • Image precaching (optional: always, never, or Wi-Fi only).
  • Built in image viewer, and GIF player.
  • Compression - both during downloads, and in cache storage.
  • Night mode (i.e. a dark theme)
  • Holo theme on every device
  • Support for Android 2.2+ (but works best on Android 4.0+)

Status: BETA

Details of each crash in the UI thread will be logged to external storage, under the filename "redreader_crash_log_(UUID).txt" - please attach the relevant log when reporting a bug. Crashes in other parts of the application will cause a prompt to be displayed asking you to email the exception details directly.
