Reddit is known as the “first page of the internet”; and is a great place to read about the latest news, watch fun or fascinating content and of course watch cats do stupid things. But you do not have to go to Reddit dot com for your daily fix – there are lots of apps that do a better job than the website ever could.
The best Reddit apps have clean intuitive interfaces and lots of options to customize the app’s look, whether it’s with themes or size, color and font. They also offer a variety of moderator tools and can support popular features such as Reddit Coins, multiple accounts, widgets, spoiler alerts, and a wide range of file types and posting tools. For what it’s worth, most of these apps also have their own underreddits that you can join, making it easy for you to stay up to date on new developments and connect with other members of the community.
No Reddit app is necessarily the best overall. rather, each has its own strengths that attract its own faithful followers. Some are proud of robust tools and features, while others focus on beautiful aesthetics and ease of use. It’s just about what you’re looking for from an Android Reddit app. We recommend that you try a few before deciding on one.
AND Goodness: The official Reddit app
If you have not used Reddit on your mobile (or in general), the official Reddit app (for free) is a good place to start. It has all the standard features you would expect from a good Reddit app and, of course, it supports Reddit Coins. The navigation bar at the bottom of the app has five options for viewing your home feed and the popular feed, finding and accessing your connected sub-edits, creating a new post, chatting in a room or with another user, and viewing your inbox. This simple Reddit app runs smoothly and does exactly what it advertises for casual users, but if you’re looking for more customization or additional features, you may want to consider another app.
Wonderful and easy to use: Sync for Reddit
If you want a Reddit app with a sleek, sleek design that’s incredibly easy to use, join Sync for Reddit (free with ads or $ 3.99). The card-based user interface for material design means that it is easy to use and that images and other elements load quickly and look good. The app supports multiple accounts, has an advanced submission editor and synchronizes your posts between it and the desktop version. Color-coded comments make it easier to skim, and with built-in sidebar support, you can see subreddit information at a glance.
Sync also has spoiler support, recommends new subreddits based on your activity, lets you open multiple subreddits at once and has a great night theme with AMOLED support. You can also get rid of ads with this version of the app for $ 3.99.
Classic Reddit Experience: riffs are fun
Rif is fun (free with ads, or $ 2.99), also known as “RIF”, formerly known as “reddit is fun”, but changes to trademark licenses are driving a name change for the popular app. It’s designed to look like classic Reddit, with lots of text and small media thumbnails on the side, but still offers modern functionality for a smooth user experience.
RIF supports lots of file types and offers a fair selection of moderator tools. There is even a widget option if you want to be able to quickly see the best posts in your feed without opening the app. Rif is fun comes in a free ad-supported version as well as a paid ad-free version for $ 2.99. You can find a knowledge base on the developer’s website for troubleshooting or just to learn more about the app.
Fast and feature rich: Boost for Reddit
Boost for Reddit (free) is super fast and intuitive. It uses a card-based user interface for material design, which always provides a wonderful and easy-to-use user experience. Boost supports media previews for images and GIFs, post-filtering, moderator tools and has a nice widget. It also offers several themes to choose from, including one designed for AMOLED screens, and you can also customize theme colors and fonts.
Boost is loaded with lots of great features, and is great for those who like to have a lot of control over detailed settings everywhere. It supports multiple viewing modes in a subreddit, such as cards with large photos, mini-cards with thumbnails, slide shows to swipe between posts, image galleries for posts with lots of photos, a compact list and more, and all can be configured for left-handed users as well.
Animations and smooth navigation: Relay for Reddit
Relay for Reddit (free with ads or $ 3.99) has a card-based material design interface and offers some super-fast features that make the user experience incredibly smooth and enjoyable. As you scroll through your feed, you easily swipe a post to the left, showing a variety of options, from voting and saving to sharing and commenting. Tap a media thumbnail to expand it, and in a post you can easily hide nested comments (or see how many there are) by simply tapping it. There are also options for automatically playing media, hiding read posts, text editing and a night-friendly dark mode.
The navigation bar at the bottom has options for sorting your feed, updating it, creating a post, viewing your followed sub-credits, and accessing other tools and options. A handy sidebar provides quick navigation to your posts, profile, inbox, moderator tools, friends and other settings. When it comes to layout customization, you can choose to display posts as a list, gallery, or with small or large cards for easy viewing. If you want to enjoy the app without ads, you can upgrade to the $ 3.99 version.
