    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.

    This app is a very unique app because of the countless communities this place has, you can just scroll scroll down once and you can find another great subreddit just waiting for you, not to mention most subreddits are incredibly funny, interesting, and some directed to your liking. Granted, the app has minor flaws, such as the people that overreact to the slightest things, the fact some videos can break your ears, and some can even show you something weird, or gross. But the fact that there’s so many good things, plus some bad things might not even exist for you, weigh down the negative things about the app for miles on end that they don’t bother you at all really, it’s a good app and it pretty much cures any boring time, (not at funerals, Not at funerals, not at funerals, not at funerals) and it allows people to express their creativity in many ways, this app is worth getting for the entertainment it will give you

    I like this app but everytime I open the app via the weekly digest email or anything of the sort, it opens the app and it just sits at the loading screen. It almost seems as though it has issues loading those interpreted links when the app was not previously in memory.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • A huge thank you! Feb 8, 2020

    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!

    Been having problems lately where the App takes forever to load. I thought it was an issue with me at first, tried different settings and nothing worked. I thought it could be my internet by when I take trips to out and abroad the issue remains. So the last possible thing it could be is the App itself. Normally when there is an update this kind of thing happens but it has been happening away from updates. It is getting annoying because the load times are increasing all the time.
  • 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.

    For the 2 ,and a bit, years I have used the app I have mostly enjoyed using the app. But the last few months it has been horrible to view any kind of content.. Generally can only watch about 2-3 vids or gifs before they all stop loading, then the pictures stop loading and I restart the app I have been reinstalling the app just about every 2 weeks in hopes it will be better but it just never fully fixes it.
  • Great mobile experience that needs to be tuned for iPad Jun 22, 2021

    By gregor630
    I’ve been using Reddit on iPhone for the better part of six years, and just recently got an iPad, so I’ve started using the app on here as well. I hope a developer actually sees this review because I think this small adjustment can really do wonders for the iPad experience as more and more people are using the iPad as their proper daily computer, either for work or leisure. I think the portrait orientation of the app is fine, but landscape just has so much wasted screen space. I think that extra space can be used to be more like the desktop version of Reddit to give the iPad a more unique experience rather than just feeling like an upscaled iOS version for iPadOS. There’s plenty of space in the left (or right) margin to utilize the profile menu that is normally hidden, as well as using the other margin for in-subreddit sidebars. I know concerns about a congested screen can make that seem like a bad idea, but I believe it’s something to at least try to really round out an otherwise great mobile app.

    Amazing app for finding just about any community you could think of. The only problem I have with it is the app is sometimes a bit buggy. Images sometimes won't upload, issues with chat, and crashes. If they fixed some of these issues and make the app feel a bit more fluid, I will gladly change my review to 5 stars.
  • 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.

    Ruining the experience with unnecessary changes that make it more tedious for the user to view the content they want. Now I have to go to discover and either scroll through a horizontal list or select my communities to view the subreddits I'm subscribed to. Previously discover would take me straight there. The new content to discover shows giant pictures which is useless since people will search by title. It bloats the screen and makes searching for interesting posts much harder.
  • Mods have too much power Aug 4, 2021

    By TheGlobfather
    The way Reddit works essentially is that anyone can claim a subreddit that isn’t already taken and create their own mod team. This means if you don’t want people to talk about baseball cards and you are the first person to get the subreddit r/baseballcards you can essentially shut down any conversation from ever happening about the subject on the platform. Not only that, if they actually want to let people talk about it they can police and ban them w/o giving any reason meaning subreddits often become home to power hungry mods who ban you for disagreeing with them even if not directly. Reddit has no problem with this because the site is big enough that the people effected don’t make enough noise to cause problems for the rest of the users nor do they have any form of recourse. They can appeal to the mod team of the subreddit but they will more than likely end up talking to the person who banned them. You can appeal directly to the Reddit mod team but like I said, they won’t care because as a mod you can ban anyone for any reason so they will say they aren’t breaking any rules. And don’t fool yourself if you are thinking this kind of degenerate mod behavior is exclusive to political subs and the like, it is every corner of reddit. The mods have too much power so of course it goes to their heads. There needs to be some kind of standard mods are held to, it has completely ruined the website.

  • Horrible app, horrible company Aug 19, 2021

    By DyreLogan
    I posted a post in a group and Reddit deleted it without telling me at all because they relied on their AI spam filter and deemed my post spam, but there was nothing that was considered spam in that post. It was civil, it didn’t break any rules, it adhered to the groups guidelines, I used the proper “flair”, and the post didn’t promote any stores, any websites or anything that would consider it spam. And here’s the kicker, I scanned the same group and there were tons of posts by people posting identical things that I did and they got to keep their posts. Also certain groups are ran by power hungry admins who abuse their power. I have been nothing but civil and nice, upvote people’s posts, help out when I can yet these power mad admins will delete your post for no reason and never gives you a valid reason for the deletion. They say you break rules but for some people they will allow the same type of posts. All in all Reddit is a jumbled mess and has horrible restrictions, even worse than Facebook or Twitter. Also, every news story that makes it up is riddled with extreme leftist views and you hardly see any conservative or right leaning content except by the people who are commenting on the leftist garbage. I’m happy to say I deleted my brand new account that I had for just a few weeks because I’m tired of that horrible company and horrible platform.

    Instead of requiring people to use the app to view your content, you might just get better ratings from people who care to give them if ya didnt force the ones who don't to download something that they dont want to, just to be able to actually read whatever they're trying to read on the webpage. If you have to force your idea, it's probably not any good.
  • Stupid gif playing Jun 19, 2021

    By Penguins<3Fish
    Currently the app likes to open some gifs like their livestream content. Meaning, swiping moves to the next stream, and not the next post in the subreddit. Extremely annoying. Gif continues playing when viewing comments (most annoying when their is sound). Gifs auto play with sound even though I have the setting set as never auto play (probably for videos, but this should apply to gifs, especially with sound). Keep them separate from the livestream interface which is annoying as heck. Maybe it’s not livestream, but directly uploaded videos hosted on Reddit. IDK. But the interface disrupts a smooth browsing experience. Don’t make it a separate interface. Just make it like it was. Gifs and videos should not be like the livestream interface. That should just be thrown out, since it bumps you to content other than what sub you were on when you try to swipe for the next post. Try it. Click on a video/ gif. It’ll be the broadcast interface allowing you only to swipe up or down to the next broadcast. You can swipe to it and it’ll be like normal from the previous post. FIX IT. Broadcast navigation is terrible. Stop pushing it. It’s so disruptive I am switching to Apollo until it is fixed.

  • I haven’t had any issues with the app till now—video player, I’m looking at you. Jun 14, 2021

    By struthious cheeseburger
    Man, sometimes I like to watch 5 second long videos, read the comments for a couple minutes, and get on with my day. Unfortunately now I can’t even do that because the video keeps looping, which turns my comment reading session into a torture session. Come on, is that tiktok ripoff trend so lucrative that you have to jump on it too? Nobody on Reddit wants tiktok on the platform—if they did they’d be using tiktok. Stop trying to be like the social media giants and go back to being your own thing! That’s why your user base exists and you’re gonna lose a lot of us if you keep making these awful choices. Ok but for real, the video player UI is just awful. On everything else the upvote/downvote buttons are on the left, but on the video player they’re on the right. The pause button is tiny. Pressing the “comments” icon takes you to the video instead of the comments, and to read the comments you have to pause the video first (if you care about your sanity). Scrolling on the video no longer takes you to the comments but to another random video. You can do better. Or wait, how bout you just go back to what was there? I never had an issue with the old player.

  • 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.

    It's a very good app, to put it plainly. Easy to navigate, so many things to do, great community. Overall amazing. However, the video player could use some work, it tends to be a bit laggy, also when I open photos to fullscreen and try to swipe through them, its also laggy, it's not that much of an inconvenience though. Videos aren't that common and I just just view photos off fullscreen. So I'll rate it 5/5

  • My fifth year on Reddit Jul 4, 2021

    By Thejoshloweshow
    Today was my 5th Reddit cake day. I thought I’d leave a review for the app since it has been almost 100% of my interaction with the site since singing up 5 years ago. I have tried other 3rd party Reddit apps and find that this one is the best for me. It’s easy to navigate and play with and does have some nice features for finding new subs and whatever. Does the basic functions of Reddit pretty well, as it should. HOWEVER The app is constantly being “improved” with god awful UI quirks to make it some form of “better.” The app is constantly fixing what isn’t broken. Just getting used to a certain feature of the app? Yeah, they’ll change it to something even more awkward and unusable in a few months. The most recent video player change makes NO sense and I don’t know of a single user I’ve interacted with that actually thinks it’s a good idea. As I mentioned before the site is really good at the basics of Reddit. And it should focus on being the best app for those basic features of the site! Stop messing with all the controls every few months and releasing updates that are just out of wack, for no good reason! Refine what works well and keep being the best at the fundamentals for the website YOU created in the first place! I love Reddit but these changes are frequent and annoying enough to make me just close the app after a minute or two because interacting with the content is such a chore. Really frustrating!

    So mant communities youre bound to find one you fit in with. The userface has continued to improve. The only issue I experience is posting images and photos from my phone to reddit, sometimes they just won't load or post. Besides that the app is great!
  • For and not for softies Sep 13, 2021

    By Aalexisnewtonn
    I was able to finally free myself from some sorts of social media here. I’m not commenting as me and I’m not comparing myself to someone that I would have seen on another platform. It’s anonymous which is great. Making sure you “stay in your lane” as in keeping within the type of subreddits that really intrigue you is what everyone should start with. Don’t explore random things.. find a community here that you are super into. ExampleX I just started my first outdoor garden and there’s r/gardening or r/homestead if I wanted to look for some others doing what I’m doing. It’s really cool once you do find a community that fits your hobby whatever it may be. However there are areas of this platform that spew endless negativity but goodluck finding a platform that doesn’t.. I mean last I heard neopets was done for. Luckily I’ve found some super cool tips from countless subs that have helped in my own real life. Stay away from hate and get into what you’ve always liked!
  • I’m new to Reddit Jun 24, 2021

    By lisa mangrum
    I joined Reddit because I have acquired an interest in the JonBenet Ramsey’s case. It’s an old case, but all the information is new to me. Reddit seems to have the best leads of interest. I’m learning a lot of. However, there are a few things that irk me. I would like to be able to “like” certain posts, but because they are over one year old, I can’t. Nor can I even comment non older posts. I would like to be able to rekindle some posts. It’s a bit frustrating. Additionally. I can’t seem to post on certain subreddits. Equally aggravating. I personally want to learn more about the less read takes on subjects. And apparently Reddit has an aversion to conspiracy theories (as some see them). Too bad. It took hours of reading to find the authors who are talking about things I suspect to be true about this case. Overall, I’m enjoying Reddit as A source. It’s nice to find people who have already done research on things that seem to be new to me

    I like this app but everytime I open the app via the weekly digest email or anything of the sort, it opens the app and it just sits at the loading screen. It almost seems as though it has issues loading those interpreted links when the app was not previously in memory.
  • 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.

    Been having problems lately where the App takes forever to load. I thought it was an issue with me at first, tried different settings and nothing worked. I thought it could be my internet by when I take trips to out and abroad the issue remains. So the last possible thing it could be is the App itself. Normally when there is an update this kind of thing happens but it has been happening away from updates. It is getting annoying because the load times are increasing all the time.

    For the 2 ,and a bit, years I have used the app I have mostly enjoyed using the app. But the last few months it has been horrible to view any kind of content.. Generally can only watch about 2-3 vids or gifs before they all stop loading, then the pictures stop loading and I restart the app I have been reinstalling the app just about every 2 weeks in hopes it will be better but it just never fully fixes it.
  • Great mobile experience that needs to be tuned for iPad Jun 22, 2021

    By gregor630
    I’ve been using Reddit on iPhone for the better part of six years, and just recently got an iPad, so I’ve started using the app on here as well. I hope a developer actually sees this review because I think this small adjustment can really do wonders for the iPad experience as more and more people are using the iPad as their proper daily computer, either for work or leisure. I think the portrait orientation of the app is fine, but landscape just has so much wasted screen space. I think that extra space can be used to be more like the desktop version of Reddit to give the iPad a more unique experience rather than just feeling like an upscaled iOS version for iPadOS. There’s plenty of space in the left (or right) margin to utilize the profile menu that is normally hidden, as well as using the other margin for in-subreddit sidebars. I know concerns about a congested screen can make that seem like a bad idea, but I believe it’s something to at least try to really round out an otherwise great mobile app.
  • Good content but bad U.I Jul 23, 2021

    By shortbusgangsta
    The content on reddit can’t be criticized because it is all user material, but the way we interact with the content CAN. The user interface is trash and hard to use. Scrolling through a video on ios almost certainly results in failure as the bar to scroll through the video is far too close to the bar you swipe to change apps. Another thing, when googling a question and finding answer on the reddit site, opening to the app takes you to the app store and doesnt let you see the actual post preventing you from seeing the rest of original post, or comments which for some reason is not allowed on the website. The whole system of selecting posts to view is broken to me. swiping up or down like in tiktok does not show the previous or next video in the sub, it shows a random slightly connected video forcing you to swipe out of any post to view the next in the sub. Small changes to improve quality of life is all that is needed to make this app a 5/5 stars for me

    This app is going downhill fast. Now if you want to access your subscriptions which is the whole point of Reddit, you now have to first load the "Discover" page that tries too hard to be Pinterest and has no value whatsoever. It also takes ages to load. This is in A/B testing which is still rampant with this app, with no way to opt out. There's also the new video player that's also in A/B testing which is a usability nightmare. At this point, you're better off using a third party app instead.
  • 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.

    Ruining the experience with unnecessary changes that make it more tedious for the user to view the content they want. Now I have to go to discover and either scroll through a horizontal list or select my communities to view the subreddits I'm subscribed to. Previously discover would take me straight there. The new content to discover shows giant pictures which is useless since people will search by title. It bloats the screen and makes searching for interesting posts much harder.

    So a few days ago I stopped being able to see comment votes for EVERY post; doesn't matter how old they are. I checked here to see if there were any recent updates and lo and behold: there was. Seriously frustrating. Also flairs won't stay with your profile even after you update them and they constantly say that they fail. Irritating af
  • Stupid gif playing Jun 19, 2021

    By Penguins<3Fish
    Currently the app likes to open some gifs like their livestream content. Meaning, swiping moves to the next stream, and not the next post in the subreddit. Extremely annoying. Gif continues playing when viewing comments (most annoying when their is sound). Gifs auto play with sound even though I have the setting set as never auto play (probably for videos, but this should apply to gifs, especially with sound). Keep them separate from the livestream interface which is annoying as heck. Maybe it’s not livestream, but directly uploaded videos hosted on Reddit. IDK. But the interface disrupts a smooth browsing experience. Don’t make it a separate interface. Just make it like it was. Gifs and videos should not be like the livestream interface. That should just be thrown out, since it bumps you to content other than what sub you were on when you try to swipe for the next post. Try it. Click on a video/ gif. It’ll be the broadcast interface allowing you only to swipe up or down to the next broadcast. You can swipe to it and it’ll be like normal from the previous post. FIX IT. Broadcast navigation is terrible. Stop pushing it. It’s so disruptive I am switching to Apollo until it is fixed.

    It's as simple as this. Why pay a monthly fee to remove ads when other apps are either ad-free or a one-time fee to remove them... O and those other apps are FAR more customizable. No option here for click to collapse comments for example. Every time I try to use this app (for it's rewards, live streams, chats) I get lost in all the clutter on the frontpage. Ads that look identical to posts, constantly being told to "discover" or "explore".
  • Updated Video UI Is the Last Straw Jun 6, 2021

    By CalebMitchell91
    The app functions relatively well, but Reddit developers have - over time - regressed the UI of their mobile app. It started with the increasing frequency of ads and subreddits oh don’t follow thrown into your feed.. then the Reddit Public Access Livestream starts showing up every five posts. For multiple versions now, the interplay between clicking a Reddit link in your mobile browser and it asking if you want to open it in the app has been broken. Instead of opening the Reddit app, it simply takes you to the Reddit App page on your phone’s App Store, not actually opening the app. Eventually the comment threading gets worse, and now they made the video playback and interaction UI so painfully incompetent I now must find a different app to browse Reddit. If I click on the “comments” below the video, I should be taken to the comments, not this frustratingly clunky video playback interface that takes multiple taps to get what you need. This is what happens when you insist your developers keep changing things instead of keeping a solid design and bug fixing/maintaining.

    This is a 5 star app however the update overnight took a one touch expand comment, and now requires you to tap the "read more" to expand the comment. I'm annoyed by this. I loved that reddit was one touch expand. Set reddit above all others. Now it's annoying af. Please fix this asap. I want it like it was. This was a huge oversight. I'll correct my star rating when you fix this

    There are a lot of bugs. It crashes a lot and doesn't load when wifi is fine. Sometimes when I go into reddit, the screen starts"blinking", it goes blacks then shows my feed again repeatedly, like a broken lightbulb. My page does load, but I can't see anything because of the "blinking". Sometimes if I close the app and reopen it, it goes back to normal, but sometimes I do it for over 20 times and it's still not back to normal. This happens very often and is very infuriating.
  • Fix the Bottom Bar Please! Aug 20, 2021

    By ReadersRLeaders
    Writing a review hoping this gets fixed so I can change the rating to five stars. The app will randomly change the orientation of the tabs at the bottom of the screen. Sometimes the app will open with my home page and five buttons at the bottom with the notifications on the far right, which is ideal. However, sometimes it opens to the world news tab and instead of a notifications tab, there is one that says “more” with three dots, where I can then click on notifications from a menu. Not only is this an annoying extra couple steps, there is no need for it since there is nothing else. On top of that, when I view my notifications this way, I cannot get to my profile in the same notifications tab. I can bring up the sidebar while viewing notifications, but when I click on my profile it just returns to my notification feed. Thought it was something that surely would have gotten caught and fixed quickly but the app was updated two days ago and this is still happening.
  • Mods have too much power Aug 4, 2021

    By TheGlobfather
    The way Reddit works essentially is that anyone can claim a subreddit that isn’t already taken and create their own mod team. This means if you don’t want people to talk about baseball cards and you are the first person to get the subreddit r/baseballcards you can essentially shut down any conversation from ever happening about the subject on the platform. Not only that, if they actually want to let people talk about it they can police and ban them w/o giving any reason meaning subreddits often become home to power hungry mods who ban you for disagreeing with them even if not directly. Reddit has no problem with this because the site is big enough that the people effected don’t make enough noise to cause problems for the rest of the users nor do they have any form of recourse. They can appeal to the mod team of the subreddit but they will more than likely end up talking to the person who banned them. You can appeal directly to the Reddit mod team but like I said, they won’t care because as a mod you can ban anyone for any reason so they will say they aren’t breaking any rules. And don’t fool yourself if you are thinking this kind of degenerate mod behavior is exclusive to political subs and the like, it is every corner of reddit. The mods have too much power so of course it goes to their heads. There needs to be some kind of standard mods are held to, it has completely ruined the website.
  • Horrible app, horrible company Aug 19, 2021

    By DyreLogan
    I posted a post in a group and Reddit deleted it without telling me at all because they relied on their AI spam filter and deemed my post spam, but there was nothing that was considered spam in that post. It was civil, it didn’t break any rules, it adhered to the groups guidelines, I used the proper “flair”, and the post didn’t promote any stores, any websites or anything that would consider it spam. And here’s the kicker, I scanned the same group and there were tons of posts by people posting identical things that I did and they got to keep their posts. Also certain groups are ran by power hungry admins who abuse their power. I have been nothing but civil and nice, upvote people’s posts, help out when I can yet these power mad admins will delete your post for no reason and never gives you a valid reason for the deletion. They say you break rules but for some people they will allow the same type of posts. All in all Reddit is a jumbled mess and has horrible restrictions, even worse than Facebook or Twitter. Also, every news story that makes it up is riddled with extreme leftist views and you hardly see any conservative or right leaning content except by the people who are commenting on the leftist garbage. I’m happy to say I deleted my brand new account that I had for just a few weeks because I’m tired of that horrible company and horrible platform.

    Instead of requiring people to use the app to view your content, you might just get better ratings from people who care to give them if ya didnt force the ones who don't to download something that they dont want to, just to be able to actually read whatever they're trying to read on the webpage. If you have to force your idea, it's probably not any good.

    I am trying to open a link from a Google search only to get a popup ad that asks me to install the reddit app or continue in browser. When I continue in browser, it takes me to the subreddit that the link goes to, not the actual post. Absolutely piss poor and horrible practice to get people to download the app to serve ads
  • I haven’t had any issues with the app till now—video player, I’m looking at you. Jun 14, 2021

    By struthious cheeseburger
    Man, sometimes I like to watch 5 second long videos, read the comments for a couple minutes, and get on with my day. Unfortunately now I can’t even do that because the video keeps looping, which turns my comment reading session into a torture session. Come on, is that tiktok ripoff trend so lucrative that you have to jump on it too? Nobody on Reddit wants tiktok on the platform—if they did they’d be using tiktok. Stop trying to be like the social media giants and go back to being your own thing! That’s why your user base exists and you’re gonna lose a lot of us if you keep making these awful choices. Ok but for real, the video player UI is just awful. On everything else the upvote/downvote buttons are on the left, but on the video player they’re on the right. The pause button is tiny. Pressing the “comments” icon takes you to the video instead of the comments, and to read the comments you have to pause the video first (if you care about your sanity). Scrolling on the video no longer takes you to the comments but to another random video. You can do better. Or wait, how bout you just go back to what was there? I never had an issue with the old player.

  • Ruined by June 11 Update Jun 11, 2021

    By CmBoiii
    So this app has been said to be inferior to other reddit applications, but I always found it to be perfectly suitable to my needs. Now all of a sudden I open up reddit for a little late night browsing before I go to bed and there has suddenly been some sort of update that I never downloaded and had no way to opt out of. This update butchered the video player that I was very content with, which is my main point of contention. It is clearly trying to mimic the “scrolling feed” that has become standard for most social media apps, but the reality is that most people come to reddit because they don’t want that crap. I have no desire to tap on a video and get brought to a blatant tiktok ripoff video player, in which I can swipe up and see content completely unrelated to the subs I am subscribed to. What makes it worse is the way the comments look when I open them up. I just liked it the way it was, and it seems that all of these updates were not intended to provide a better user experience. I hope they update the app with the option to go back to the way things were. Until then I honestly just don’t see myself enjoying this app.

    Started out with videos not loading a few weeks ago, now im unable to make comments on post, unable to give awards, and cannot even upload a simple picture. I'm not sure what these updates they keep rolling out are doing but they seem to keep making the app worse and worse? Comment section won't even load sometimes. I literally just bought a new s21 a week ago and I'm having the exact same problems I had on my s7 from 2016...

    Listen i love reddit but just get on the browser version. I tried to give it probs because i love reddit but this app is garbage. I can't even scroll for an hour without it refusing to load things and or just stopping and it's not my internet as everything else works fine! I cant watch many videos either, on top of that some video don't even show up for some not to mention it takes a long time for reddit to rest from becoming unusable.
  • cannot switch from safari to app Jul 23, 2021

    By Pieeanannooo
    often , i will be googling questions or whatnot when a reddit thread shows up. when i click on the link to reddit, a pop-up opens and i cannot view the post in safari because it tells me to read it in the app. there is no X out button, so i usually click the “go to app” option. despite having downloaded the app, it brings me to the app store. instead of the downloaded app icon, it says “OPEN.” when i click the “OPEN” button it just brings me to the general feed of the app instead of the post i was trying to read. it is very irritating, as i cannot even read the thread on safari because of the pop-up. this does not happen with any other app i’ve used (twitter, instagram, tumblr, facebook, etc.) all other apps bring me straight to the page i was looking at. additionally, in terms of notifications, i find it annoying that if i look at one thread from a subreddit i did not join, i am given daily notifications for new posts. the notifications from subreddits do not happen with ones that i DID join, and i’d like to be notified about those more than the ones that i just glanced at.
