    Reddit is one of the most famous or perhaps infamous apps for asking questions due to their AITA feature, where you can find 100 plus questions every day. I love going on here and reading the amusing posts.

    Reddit is one of the best sources for political discussion. You will find the latest news as well as 100s of individual forums (called subreddits) where you can discuss political topics and exchange ideas with fellow liberals.

    Social issues are a tricky topic. 179 different arguments can clash in a matter of seconds. Get informed, learn the ins and outs of what you stand for, and sharpen your debating skills. In addition to being a place for sharing news, Reddit is also a good spot for discussing social issues.

    It's been 1 year since my first Secret Santa exchange on Reddit, and I'm super excited about the exchange this year. Over 50,000 people have signed up for it, and there is still time to do it if you're interested. You get matched up with someone in your own country or another country and the minimum is only $20, though many people go over that for this exchange. What's even more amazing is that the exchanges just don't happen during Christmas - they happen throughout the year. It's a lot of fun.

    I've only been on Reddit for almost 2 years, but I wish I had signed up for them sooner. It's so much fun there and I have made a lot of friends. Some of the craziest, funniest, and most heartwarming things can be found there, so check it out.

    With 1,000,000s of users and countless forums (called 'subreddits'), there's bound to be a discussion board for the shows you're interested in. It's free and the app is easy to navigate; there are also several ways to engage with people's comments.

  • Please let me delete private messages and chats 😭😭 Jan 10, 2021

    By sickbbdoll
    Overall i really like reddit as a social media, its really easy to find people with similar interests no matter how niche the topic and the karma system is really cool, i only have a couple qualm with a few features of reddit. I post some lewd things on one of my accounts and I regularly get 100s of messages, both in the chat option in private messages. I do appreciate that you can “mark all inbox tabs as read” for messages to get rid of the notification but I do wish you could delete the messages thread all together, the chat option is slightly more infuriating, theres no way to mark all as read and to even read the messages to have them marked as read is a bit more of a process, definitely don’t want to go through and tap decline on 1000+ chats and there are some chats that i accepted from a few months ago that i wish i could delete, but alas. I also wish there was a way to block specific subreddits, i got into an argument with some idiot on a climate change denier subreddit and i keep getting the notifications for when a post in the sub “trends” and things like that, all of the posts drive me absolutely crazy with their idiocy and id really prefer not to get notifications for them.

  • 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.
  • 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!

    Over the years, Reddit has become my go to place for everything. Games, PC hardware, political discussion, vitamins and supplements. I can find almost any question I've ever needed answers to and ask a new one if it hasn't been answered yet. My only complaint would be that their search is terrible. A major life hack, go to your favorite search engine and add "reddit" to the end of your search to search more accurately results
  • 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.

    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.
  • Put 5 star so you have chance of seeing Feb 21, 2021

    By Slasher big Palm
    Where do I start. I been using Reddit awhile. Don’t use Reddit if you have any questions. They will most likely have a bot that doesn’t understand English and blocks your comment even though you haven’t broken any rules. This is okay but then it will stop you from trying to post your question again. It will say “wait 20 mins your posting to fast” I DIDN'T EVEN GET TO POST! What are you talking about ? This is a very small problem which made millions of people decide Reddit isn’t worth it. If you need news I would recommend somewhere anywhere else but Reddit If you have a question your not gonna get an answer let alone be able to post your question. If you wanna just have discussions Reddit isn’t the best place. The discussion would take over 8 hours and 1 person might be able to say 2 maybe 3 posts that can help/ answer someone’s question. (No matter what forum no matter place you are tying to post to. If you posted somewhere else on Reddit you still have to wait 20-30 mins. I don’t know about you but if I need help getting a answer then I’m not gonna have 2 hours to wait if I failed or forgot to mention something. This is literally one for he dumbest apps. I think it’s for people who are toxic who are trying to not by toxic I don’t know. Truth Reddit has become useless. Definitely for people who have things to do in there lives.

    Reddit is one of the most addictive social media platforms. It's strictly divided into different "subreddits" based on interest. When I open Reddit, I see adorable animals and delicious desserts, the latest drama, deep discussions, and more. The upvote/downvote system is excellent for filtering out bad content, the ads aren't that bad, and it's fairly simple to navigate. Highly recommend, but warning, there is adult content.
  • 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.

    This new update that changes the video format is absolutely horrible. Comment sections have become almost entirely unreachable because the video is forced to display. I feel like its trying be like youtube and it's just not good. It was fine before. Also for some reason when switching to landscape mode to watch a video the video will dim itself maybe 25%. I tried watching a video just now in the "recommended for you" section, I couldn't get to the actual post, comments were unviewable.
  • Please let me remove the scroll button! May 4, 2021

    By seal_eggs
    Overall the app is quite good. Very fluid, easy to navigate to my favorite subreddits quickly; basically does everything I’d expect from a Reddit client. HOWEVER, there is one feature that drives me absolutely batty. The scroll button. You know the one. The one where you accidentally click it and it sends you to the bottom of the thread you’re currently reading. There is already a perfectly good feature for this: pressing and holding on the screen collapses the current top-level comment and all child comments. I have had this app since the day it came out and have never, not once, pressed that button on purpose. Most of the time I just stick it in the top right corner and it stays out of the way, where it still creates a minor visual annoyance, but if that was all that happened I would not be writing this review. No, not only can I not get rid of it, it won’t even stay where I put it. Every so often, the button will jump back to its default location, and will not let me move it above that height on the screen. It’s annoying, it’s USELESS, because as I said there is already a feature that accomplishes the same thing, and I can’t remove it. Absolutely horrible feature. Please remove it from the app or at the very least give me an option to remove it. As it stands this app is two stars. Remove this infernal button and it will be five.

    Some of the commmunities are great. The app is kinda trash. Constant loading errors, telling me that I'm "doing that too much" when commenting once a day at most, lots of videos won't replay no matter what i do so if i manage to miss the video the first time I'm SOL. Not very pleased. Edit: I'm sick of getting multiple ad posts in a row btw, super annoying. Edit: not only are ads ON posts now, but even if I haven't touched them, video ads will play their audio without the video 😡 trash

    when logged into my account, nothing loads up, no feed, no messages, zilch. Just errors/retry buttons. been like this for god knows how long. Done uninstalls, done deleted data, even reset my phone to factory settings, and still the same problem. Also the app glitches and flashes black and white upon opening it. Rendering issues I noticed. Not worth using or downloading.

    Every video has to buffer for a ridiculous amount of time. A 39 second video can take me upwards to 2 minutes to finish because it buffers every 3 seconds. This has been constant since about October 2020. It's baffling how a first party software operates so poorly. What's more, the app regularly crashes and lags like it's having an aneurism. I've been waiting for months for it to resolve itself, but it's only gotten worse. I would recommend a third party app. Any of them at this point.
  • May 7, 2021

    By anSAMations
    Currently, there is a bug where advertisements stuck under posts when you open the comments will still play their visual rendition's audio. There is no way to pause it and It stops whenever you go past the advert, meaning it's obviously recognised as being on screen but has no way to stop it, nor report an ad either. Fix this soon please, although that's wishful thinking at this point.
  • May 9, 2021

    By The ImG
    Video player sucks, audio never starts with the video, which is good, but its as if the app understands tilting the phone as starting the video again, just at a different time in the video, so tiliting it (even by accident) mutes the video Also seems like the app is being pushed on to users, sometimes I just cant view reddit from Chrome, as ut just directs me here to install it
  • From great to ok to disappointing Nov 18, 2020

    By A Bitter Addict
    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.

    Crashes all the time with no other apps open. Really annoying because it resets your feed and you have to scroll all the way to where you were.(2018) (Update 2020) crashing fixed for me, ad are really loud compared to anything else and auto play sound. Really frustrating. (Update again 2020) it now has an add on every post. No longer using redit. Every other day have to clear data so the app will load. Getting tired of it. (2021)

    One of the most annoying things is watching videos on this application, preceding to exit full screen in portrait and scroll down the comment only for the video to come back in fullscreen while im reading. Whats worse is it happens all the time. This has been the same on different phones Ive had for the past couple years.

  • I Oppose Censorship. The content that remains is still good. Nov 1, 2020

    By DJSALAZAR626
    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.

  • Please Bring Organization of Saved Posts! Oct 13, 2019

    By VKStarfox
    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.
  • Starting to get toxic Apr 12, 2020

    By Cman5346
    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.
  • Please let me delete private messages and chats 😭😭 Jan 10, 2021

    By sickbbdoll
    Overall i really like reddit as a social media, its really easy to find people with similar interests no matter how niche the topic and the karma system is really cool, i only have a couple qualm with a few features of reddit. I post some lewd things on one of my accounts and I regularly get 100s of messages, both in the chat option in private messages. I do appreciate that you can “mark all inbox tabs as read” for messages to get rid of the notification but I do wish you could delete the messages thread all together, the chat option is slightly more infuriating, theres no way to mark all as read and to even read the messages to have them marked as read is a bit more of a process, definitely don’t want to go through and tap decline on 1000+ chats and there are some chats that i accepted from a few months ago that i wish i could delete, but alas. I also wish there was a way to block specific subreddits, i got into an argument with some idiot on a climate change denier subreddit and i keep getting the notifications for when a post in the sub “trends” and things like that, all of the posts drive me absolutely crazy with their idiocy and id really prefer not to get notifications for them.

  • 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!

    I absolutely love this platform and this app. BUT. The Reddit bugs get to me! Argh. Especially if you have more than one account. 1. The DM notification keeps switching accounts, which is how many chats go unanswered, sometimes for days. 2. The app crashing everytime you open up a notification from one account, while you are on the other account. May I suggest a few things which might help the navigation a bit easier?
  • 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!

    Great app still getting the hang of it though. Great place for asking questions and or looking for answers. Lovely people on here to ask for advice from. The reason why i didn't put 5 stars was purely because some communities have a strict policy to uoad selfies and or pictures and so my screen freezes if try to post pictures on a strict community
  • Ok but missing important functionalities Feb 13, 2021

    By Bling Diggity
    So I’d definitely say the official Reddit app is easily the most “stable” Reddit app out there - although it does have a few minor glitches that pop up from time to time. The main reason I’m giving this app 4 Stars and not 5 however is because of a lack of functionality. It’s currently missing the ability to display the Wiki sections of subreddits - and that’s a major drawback, especially for certain subreddits whose content is basically centered around their wikis. Also, the inability of the app to display “old reddit” - or its inability to show what a particular subreddit looks like in its old-reddit-styling - that’s a major drawback as well, as certain subreddits have still not upgraded to new Reddit, and lose much of their functionality when forcibly viewed in new-Reddit-styling. If the official app could add these 2 things, as well as chat room functionality - then my app store rating might change also.

    Awesome app. There is a subreddit for everything you can think of. My only issue is that it should be easier to discover new subreddits. But I really enjoy the app overall and use it all the time
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    It's great when it works. The videos are playable, it's easy to tell when you get free awards, etc. And then there comes that one day when you get the dreaded "We had some trouble getting to Reddit" message that never goes away and removes all functionality that this app has. I wish this problem (whatever it may be) gets fixed.

    App freezing has gotten worse, not better. Very frustrating having to always clear cache, delete & re-add app, turn phone off & back on, and all the tricks to make it work that I know of, only to have it still freeze up. But I did give a 3 star because on the odd times it does work, it works well.

    By Michael R
    This new update that changes the video format is absolutely horrible. Comment sections have become almost entirely unreachable because the video is forced to display. I feel like its trying be like youtube and it's just not good. It was fine before. Also for some reason when switching to landscape mode to watch a video the video will dim itself maybe 25%. I tried watching a video just now in the "recommended for you" section, I couldn't get to the actual post, comments were unviewable.
  • Please let me remove the scroll button! May 4, 2021

    By seal_eggs
    Overall the app is quite good. Very fluid, easy to navigate to my favorite subreddits quickly; basically does everything I’d expect from a Reddit client. HOWEVER, there is one feature that drives me absolutely batty. The scroll button. You know the one. The one where you accidentally click it and it sends you to the bottom of the thread you’re currently reading. There is already a perfectly good feature for this: pressing and holding on the screen collapses the current top-level comment and all child comments. I have had this app since the day it came out and have never, not once, pressed that button on purpose. Most of the time I just stick it in the top right corner and it stays out of the way, where it still creates a minor visual annoyance, but if that was all that happened I would not be writing this review. No, not only can I not get rid of it, it won’t even stay where I put it. Every so often, the button will jump back to its default location, and will not let me move it above that height on the screen. It’s annoying, it’s USELESS, because as I said there is already a feature that accomplishes the same thing, and I can’t remove it. Absolutely horrible feature. Please remove it from the app or at the very least give me an option to remove it. As it stands this app is two stars. Remove this infernal button and it will be five.

    Every video has to buffer for a ridiculous amount of time. A 39 second video can take me upwards to 2 minutes to finish because it buffers every 3 seconds. This has been constant since about October 2020. It's baffling how a first party software operates so poorly. What's more, the app regularly crashes and lags like it's having an aneurism. I've been waiting for months for it to resolve itself, but it's only gotten worse. I would recommend a third party app. Any of them at this point.
  • May 7, 2021

    By anSAMations
    Currently, there is a bug where advertisements stuck under posts when you open the comments will still play their visual rendition's audio. There is no way to pause it and It stops whenever you go past the advert, meaning it's obviously recognised as being on screen but has no way to stop it, nor report an ad either. Fix this soon please, although that's wishful thinking at this point.
  • From great to ok to disappointing Nov 18, 2020

    By A Bitter Addict
    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.
  • 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.

    Some of the commmunities are great. The app is kinda trash. Constant loading errors, telling me that I'm "doing that too much" when commenting once a day at most, lots of videos won't replay no matter what i do so if i manage to miss the video the first time I'm SOL. Not very pleased. Edit: I'm sick of getting multiple ad posts in a row btw, super annoying. Edit: not only are ads ON posts now, but even if I haven't touched them, video ads will play their audio without the video 😡 trash

    when logged into my account, nothing loads up, no feed, no messages, zilch. Just errors/retry buttons. been like this for god knows how long. Done uninstalls, done deleted data, even reset my phone to factory settings, and still the same problem. Also the app glitches and flashes black and white upon opening it. Rendering issues I noticed. Not worth using or downloading.

    Video player sucks, audio never starts with the video, which is good, but its as if the app understands tilting the phone as starting the video again, just at a different time in the video, so tiliting it (even by accident) mutes the video Also seems like the app is being pushed on to users, sometimes I just cant view reddit from Chrome, as ut just directs me here to install it

    Crashes all the time with no other apps open. Really annoying because it resets your feed and you have to scroll all the way to where you were.(2018) (Update 2020) crashing fixed for me, ad are really loud compared to anything else and auto play sound. Really frustrating. (Update again 2020) it now has an add on every post. No longer using redit. Every other day have to clear data so the app will load. Getting tired of it. (2021)

    One of the most annoying things is watching videos on this application, preceding to exit full screen in portrait and scroll down the comment only for the video to come back in fullscreen while im reading. Whats worse is it happens all the time. This has been the same on different phones Ive had for the past couple years.

    I'm getting more and more agitated with this app. It is supposed to be a mobile app but I can't even upload a picture to a subreddit, the submitting message pops up with the loading circle just spinning it will do that for an hour! My photo will never upload! It is not a mobile app if all the functions of the website are not accessible I have been patiently waiting for months for the problem to be fixed and it has not been fixed.
  • I would not recommend the app Feb 16, 2020

    By Ava E Phoenix
    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?
