  • Amazing app, totally recommend. Dec 2, 2019

    By .Ana_B.
    This is a great app for things such as news articles, petitions, horrible facebook memes, interesting pictures or videos, or even some regular memes for a good laugh. However, Reddit doesn’t do a very good job of filtering through every post or comment to see if it is appropriate and follows the community’s guidelines. I had made a comment to a post on r/memes, saying “ah yes, those dang cows, always there when you least expect it.” About 3 seconds after I had posted the comment, I got a notification that read “Your comment has been removed as your account does not meet our posting requirements. You can visit....” I was very confused because I thought that the comment was appropriate for said community and did not break any of their rules. Other than that, it is very easy to use and a great way to un-bore you anywhere you are, whether it’s the doctor’s office, waiting for the bus to arrive, in the car, in your room, etc. Please download this app.

    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

    works pretty well usually, however there's these problems: I tried to log in to my account through the web, but it said incorrect password even though I typed in said correct password When I went on my account to change the password, I could not do so as it said that I was not connected to a network, but I was. After changing the password, I tried to use the web browser to login, but it said incorrect password again. I tried my old pw too, but that did not work

    When it works, for me it works well. But when it doesn't it's goddamn frustrating. When I open the app, it'll go into an infinite loading loop. Then I have to keep closing and opening the app hoping that it will work at some point. Randomly it'll start working again. Edit: changed from 2 to 4. Works now. Videos take a terrible amount to load but other than that my go-to.

  • One annoyance... Jul 23, 2020

    By maawolfe36
    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.

  • Reddit Admins Play Favorites Jul 22, 2020

    By Birb17
    It’s kinda sad really. If you’re a part of a sub that is controversial and the reddit admins don’t agree then they rarely if ever help you. I know someone who has been harassed by the same guy and followed across reddit for SIX MONTHS. Does reddit do anything? Nope! Cause said person is a part of the controversial subreddit she doesn’t matter. I was suspended for 3 days for “harassment” (if reddit had actually looked at my post/comment/dm history they’d know it was a false claim) and nobody ever got back to me despite requesting a re-evaluation 20 minutes after I was suspended. Been over two months now and I still haven’t heard back. I guess I’m used to it. So yeah. If you join a controversial subreddit don’t expect reddit to help you. If they don’t agree with your views they’ll just ignore you. Doesn’t matter how many people threaten and harass you. Reddit could not care less about you. Minus the lack of moderation I actually kinda like reddit. Cute animal pics and people who I can talk to about my interests and views is nice. But I suppose this will eventually wear off and I’ll turn my two star review into a one star. Reddit, take a step back and actually give a flying fig about those who use your app.

    Buggy. If you use the app for more than 15 mins it becomes unusable and non responsive until you force quit and clear the cache. Video playback is plagued with issues. The absolute WORST right now is the random playback of ads and videos when scrolling through the feed. Even whe. There's no ad present and sometimes it's impossible to stop, or mute this. Stick with the website the app is not worth the hassle!

Will fix rating when this issue is addressed. Edit: I have come to learn that its not even just ads anymore that'll play while off screen. I will be browsing MY FEED and random videos from THE FRONT PAGE will start playing with full sound. Pathetic

    Current build (as of October 17th 2020) is borderline unusable. Videos (ads included) will play with volume whether you toggled the volume or not. This will stop your music as well. Along with that, half the time pictures won't load and internet connectivity is spotty at best, even when every other app can connect.

    Currently 1 star because something must have happened in the last update. Anytime I'm playing music through the YouTube music app and then I click on the Reddit app my music turns off and ads that I can't see or find start playing instead of the music. I have to change pages entirely to stop it and sometimes it starts the sound for an ad randomly after clicking on posts. Literally impossible to scroll through reddit with the sound on without hearing an ad or video. Even with autoplay turned off.

  • Reddit Review Jul 15, 2020

    By Track-Man
    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.

  • The most unique and customized social media platform out there Jun 19, 2018

    By Superbat211
    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.

Simple as that. I'll be using reddit forever now probably haha🤣

  • Welcome to your community Apr 21, 2019

    By baller_chick232
    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.

  • A huge thank you! Feb 8, 2020

    By inserttrenfyusernamehere
    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!

  • It works well Mar 15, 2018

    By Jjss dtr
    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.

  • Why 4, and not 5. Sep 2, 2020

    By vandoly
    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!

  • Frustrating update to comment collapsing Feb 27, 2018

    By lilweirdward
    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.

  • Good app, Sharing Options are TERRIBLE Dec 6, 2019

    By VeniVidiReliqui
    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.

  • Great, But Jun 21, 2018

    By senatorlance
    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.

  • Latest update a perfect example of devs who mess with the ui too much Dec 7, 2019

    By Needs updates, very bad.
    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.

Kinda frustrating that I can do that on the web version, but not in the app.
