I still don't get why the Official Reddit App limits the length of comment chains arbitrarily.
Here's the goodbye comment that already exists. No need to comment 'Goodbye'. It's already there.
I reccomend Reddit Is Fun for Android, honestly. It's much better than the official app, for me at least. Link for the lazy
When you want to use that feature on reddit, there are two simple ways:
Buy reddit gold and it will sync automatically
[link] Create an account … install the plugin … install a android / iphone app which works with synccit.
Have fun browsing through reddit with visited links!
After lots of people on Reddit told me to use "Reddit is fun" app instead. I am now part of the people telling others to use the "Reddit is fun" app instead.
edit: added a link because typing 3 words into Google is hard.
Reddit is Fun is a reddit client which is not in the wiki. It's a sexy client which is compact and has many features (mod tools being a major one of them). The free version has all the features of the paid version except that it has ads (tell me what devs do that these days?). The ads can also be disabled if you don't use the moderator features. It has a compact view which is quite information dense. There's also great theme support including dark themes and card views. The RiF community is very active and the dev is quite fast in answering questions. He doesn't talk much though
EDIT : link - [link]
Good job. :)
Also, if you have an android and want a client that does this for you, Reddit Is Fun has the formattinf available so you don't have to remember it.
Try it out if you want!
I like Reddit Is Fun
It's been around for a while, so tried and tested it seems to work pretty well
Displays very similar to stock "desktop" reddit does
simple and very easy to use
doesn't delete any comments in a comment thread
simple and doesn't really have super fancy add-on features or subreddit specific css(still shows flair though, text only)
sometimes gyfcat and imgur links get stuck loading and you have to open in browser to view them
Check out Reddit Is Fun if you're on Android. It's my preferred app.
EDIT: Links for the free version: [link]
RiF GP to support the developer: [link]
Stricly no ads and free is redditisfun , no headaches at all and no learning curve it will work just like the desktop UI .
Free : [link]
For me the best app is reddit is fun. I just bought the pro version a few days ago to thank the programmer for the many hours of enjoyable redditing his software provided me.
I use Reddit is fun. It runs very smoothly, has all my subreddits in the my subreddit list and works especially well on tablets (still great on my phone too though!) 4.7 stars on Google Play.
I've only ever used Reddit Is Fun. Never had a reason to move tbh. Works great for me, very easy to use, gets regular updates...
Even when it's a direct link? If that's the case then yes indeed, the reddit app is utter balls
reddit is fun has always been the best way to browse in my opinion
In some apps you need to enable that feature first :)
(e.g. with this one you need to do the following steps to activate this feature: Settings → History → Sync history via reddit / synccit)
I like Sync but it absolutely destroys my battery life for some reason (from lasting hours to lasting 30 minutes at most from full battery + charging case). Reddit is Fun is a good option too.

Ja polecę dwie: reddit is fun (unofficial) lub BaconReader for Reddit
It's not a link, but a spoiler. Hover the text if you're on a desktop browser. Or use reddit is fun if you're on mobile, it'll show spoilers properly, and reveal them when you select the comment.

It's been a day! those bastards never updating their app, I hate them so much
Unless you browse reddit on apps like Reddit is fun or Now for Reddit which all process GIFs through Gfycat and saves you that 50 Mb loading while still watching the GIF.
For most people the comments cut off after 10 but yours seems to have cut off after 8 (perhaps you're using a different app). I think most people don't like this and so we're just waiting for the devs to add in a "see more comments" button like on desktop. If you really don't like it, then you can move onto a different app (Reddit is fun is a popular one on android)
Any subreddit which doesn't opt-out and isn't quarantined will show up on /r/all. If you don't like seeing a particular subreddit on /r/all, there are a few ways to change this:
I can understand the sentiment but it falls apart upon closer inspection. Intentionally using the official reddit app when there are far superior ones readily available is only shooting yourself in the foot. Edit: Check out Reddit is Fun.
On the Reddit Is Fun app (Android): Go to Settings, Content Filters, Post Filters.
I can't find an option on the mobile site.
EDIT: Sync For Reddit (also Android) has it as well, but I have no experience with that app.
reddit is funissa on mielestäni ollut flairit niin kauan kun olen sitä käyttänyt eli 3-4v nyt ainakin. Toimiiko flairit nyt siis myös Redditin mobiilisivuilla?
reddit is fun (unofficial)
Boost for reddit
Yep I use Reddit Is Fun also. There's also an option for pure black background which saves power on an OLED screen.
Sorry iOS users Android only
For browsing reddit I use reddit is fun. I found it to be the best app for browsing reddit on tablets and smartphones. The paid version reddit is fun golden platinum costs only $2 and is ad free and enables you to save comments.
In reddit is fun:
Feel free to try it on this comment. I don't mind.
Pro pro pro tip: Install Reddit Is Fun and you will be able to see the flares.
Or if you have an iPad, Alien Blue.
A extensão "reddit new comments highlighter" só há para chrome. Queria algo do género para firefox.
O RES já uso há algum tempo, adoro o nightmode e o "never ending reddit".
A app que uso para android é o Reddit is fun golden platinum
Edit: aparentemente existe o cozy reddit (highlight de novos comentários), mas obriga a desligar algumas extensões do RES

Reddit is fun permette tutto, ~~tranne~~ anche di vedere le sidebar, non mi da problemi sul mio ace3 (dual core di fascia bassa).
Popular unofficial Reddit app Reddit is Fun has the ability to add filters.
You can also filter the title and even url domains.
I'd generally recommend Reddit is Fun, it's powerful, it's easy to use and spoiler tags work properly there.
Did you even look at the subreddit? This is for discussion of the app, reddit is fun.
Also, you were totally in the wrong.
Reddit is fun, wersja bez reklam jest warta każdego grosza.
If you're on an android cellphone use this app. It doesn't load the sidebar art so you don't have to worry about that issue. Very lightweight program.
There's plenty of other lovely Android clients for Reddit! So far, I've only used reddit is fun and Slide for Reddit, but I can definitely recommend both as great apps (or at least, better than the default app).
There's plenty of others on the Play Store as well, so take a look around.
There are lots of Reddit apps. Reddit is fun in particular is a very nice app. It's lightweight and does everything you need to do. I agree that the official app is garbage.
Reddit is fun
You're using a bad mobile client then if you can't see gold, flair, or the sidebar (if you're on Android, Reddit Is Fun has all of these). Reddit's official app blows but they do make all the features available to devs through the API so I'd try looking into other apps.
I'm on Android, so I use reddit is fun, but I've heard good things about Narwhal
Either get reddit is fun if you want a similar reddit web experience or Relay for reddit if you want better UI.
I used Reddit is Fun for a long time, and then started using BaconReader about 6 months ago. Both are fantastic apps.
There's probably an option somewhere in the settings. Alternatively, install a decent Reddit app like reddit is fun.
I do the same (reddit is fun ftw). Works like a charm.
Though I honestly wish I could whitelist certain apps. I'd whitelist RIF in a heartbeat. It's a fantastic reddit client.
Then continue using pro, keeping lite installed but not using it.

> Reddit.com did not allow 3rd party apps to use their name as the first 1st word in the app name.
Yet somehow reddit is fun gets away with it.
Probably too late for anyone else to see but I use reddit is fun for Android. Sure images take a while to load just the same but all it takes is a single back button to get back to where you were from. Also, if you're on a tablet, you get split view. And there's night mode, and an account manager. And is updated regularly. I never had the need (or means) to get the paid version but it's free and I can't recommend it enough.
I'd recommend reddit is fun, it feels the most similar to the desktop website. It also has some features that some other reddit apps don't have (mod tools, multi support, subreddit filtering, etc).
Meh. I'll stick with reddit is fun unless there is a compelling reason not to. Even your own official app stinks. Get with the times.
Try using Reddit Is Fun for android. Sticky threads are visible with that app. Or just visit rollerblading.reddit.com on your mobile browser if you can't use Reddit is Fun.
Sorry, but there's nothing mods can do about this problem. That's an issue to take up with the developers of whichever app you use.
Are you using the official one?I'm using Reddit is fun and it has both of those features.
Btw any of you guys know if there is an android Reddit app that shows comments faces.Browsing /r/anime threads is just not the same as on PC.
I use the reddit is fun app and it shows spoilers no problem. Someone else mentioned Narwhal. I would suggest switching apps.
I have the reddit is fun app for my phone. [link]
It lets me turn on notifications for new posts. Its not perfect, but it usually lets me know within ~30min.
If you have a reddit app like Reddit is Fun, then it'll open in that app.
Also, the mobile site of reddit is pretty bad. I really recommend downloading RiF [link]
Thanks. I've done what I can to notify the admins about the problem. In the mean time, I'd recommend getting a better app. The official one is infamously not very good. Reddit is Fun is excellent.
/u/Gobba42, same message applies to you.
I like how on reddit desktop I can collapse threads. I use reddit is fun and it doesn't seem to have that feature. Any reddit client out there that does?
A) sorry, what? Your question does not make grammatical sense.
B) I was under the impression that flair is, indeed, available to all users of reddit. Perhaps not. However, I myself use the site and moderate from mobile 99% of the time. It sounds like maybe OP has made the choice to use an inferior mode of access, and I'm not going to take responsibility for someone essentially choosing to use IE3 when a fully functional browser is right goddamn there.
Agreed...the official reddit mobile apps are junk...I prefer Reddit is Fun on Android and am still sticking with Alien Blue on iOS, which appears to still be in the App Store
It seems that your comment contains 1 or more links that are hard to tap for mobile users.
I will extend those so they're easier for our sausage fingers to click!
Here is link number 1 - Previous text "RIF"
^Please ^PM ^/u/eganwall ^with ^issues ^or ^feedback! ^| ^Delete
If you have the reddit is fun app, then go to:
Settings > General Settings > Untick Ads & pro features.
Check out this post, maybe? It's from January but was the most recent result when I asked Google, and it seems to indicate the button for posting is hidden because it's dark text on a dark background. Sorry, I've never used the official app so I don't have any hands-on experience, maybe someone else will have more advice.
Here's a link to Reddit Is Fun, I know it's generally pretty well regarded and better liked than the official app, maybe you'll have better luck with it.
edit - I've gotta go to bed, but I'll check back in the morning and help however I can if you still need it! �� Good luck.
RiF is the Reddit is Fun app for your mobile device.
Or use an alternative Reddit app such as Reddit Is Fun which includes formatting features.
I'm sure you'll be understanding of the fact that I don't quite believe you.
But anyway! It's Reddit Is Fun Golden Platinum (the paid version of Reddit Is Fun) using the dark theme. It's my favorite app - I've tried the others and it's the best in my opinion.
No problem my guy :)
Appreciate how you took the effort in to get a link, even though it wasn't for the right app
Putting an effort to do something when you don't really have to is a character trait many don't have. And it is a character trait that will take you very far.
Correct link: [link]
Are you using the official reddit one? It doesn't work very well. I recommend Reddit Is Fun, if you are using Android OS.
I believe it should work on any LG phone that supports dual window. I am unfamiliar with the G4s or G4c, but If they support dual window, then this should work.
If you check the "What's new" section on the reddit is fun app on the play store, you see they listed "LG Dual Window" which should cover all LG phones like I said.
> I wrote a long detailed reply on my phone and then accidentally hit the back button and lost it all
Use Reddit Is Fun. You can store drafts of your reply. Very useful for long replies.
Yeah recently their free version started to get really aggressive with ads since the fall. iOS especially, its worse on that version.
I suggest getting "reddit is fun" or the official app as an alternative.
You're very welcome. :)
Whether or not you can flair posts on mobile depends on what Reddit app you're using. I use Reddit Is Fun, and flairing posts on it is easy (long-press your post, in the resulting menu there is a flair option). If you're using the official Reddit app, I have no idea and you'll have to look at its FAQ.
Otro voto para Reddit is fun.
Tiene una muy buena interfaz, modo nocturno, temas, es zurdo friendly, updates regulares...
Ah, y la versión sin publicidad sale 20 pé
RIS isn't official, as far as I know, but it is the most popular Reddit browser for Android.
But for the Apple ~~zombies~~ fans, there's also an iOS equivalent with Alien Blue.
In addition to /u/TheMalien 's comment, I've also found that tapping the center of the image seems to make it play sometimes. But only on Reddit is Fun, which I assume this is
Android users can use redditisfun. I don't know how often it polls... It seemed to vary for me. [link]
I'm considering releasing my app to the play store, but it comes with caveats. Android OS puts the network to sleep after so many minutes of inactivity, which means I need to force the OS to stay 'awake'. This causes significant battery drain. (I also need to make a logo, lol).
The benefit though, it that it's VERY reliable, as you can set your own timer to check. I check every minute.
Edit: added link for redditisfun
[Странно, что у вас не apple](#irony)
Для дроида есть Reddit is fun
На каждый компьютер хром сам вытаскивает все ваши плагины, при включенной синхронизации.
Ну и самое важное - контент, другое такое место в интернете, где вы можете лично пообщаться с Обамой, например, или там с вашим любимым исполнителем вы вряд ли найдете.
(/party)You could do what the creator of Reddit is Fun did... at least before he made it have iAPS and such...
He put it on GitHub and the Android App Store
>Vissa använder sig av mobiltelefoner/surfplattor - RES finns väl inte till iOS/Android, eller?
Nej, RES finns inte för mobiler. Dock har en del reddit-appar en inbyggd filterfunktion. Jag använder reddit is fun och den har det.
Good app with potential.. I'm subbed here to check on the progress I've been luking a lot also and never see the dev around.. what a waste of talent and a good app.. RIF aka Reddit is fun is a good alternative
Edit: use card view better experience in my view
Edit2: what if something happened to the dev? that would be sad.
Edit3: just saw this in another thread dev update 6 months ago
You just have to wait.
Or use a different app. I LOVE redditisfun.
What app do you use? I use reddit is fun, it's really easy to change flairs and use tags in subreddits. Try it, you may like it.
Here is link number 1 - Previous text "RiF"
Then yep - there are a number of them available, and you might care to give each one a few days to see which you prefer. I did this, and the one I settled on was "reddit is fun."
Isiinstaliuok RES. Praktiskai butinas patogiam naudojimui.
Jeigu ketini ant androido reddita ziuret, rekomenduoju Reddit is Fun. Zymiai geresnis negu oficialus appas.
Jeigu bendriau, keletas dalyku:
1. Redditas yra puikus dalintis kuriniais ar informacijai, bet jis yra siaubingas diskusijai. Upvotu (streliciu aukstyn) ir downvotu (strelyciu zemyn) systema reiskia, kad paprasciausiai ne tokios populiarios nuomones bus nepamatomos. Kas turi daug upvotu - t.y. populiaru atsiduria auksiau - lengviau pamatoma, o kas turi nedaug upvotu ir daug downvotu atsiduria zemiau, ir todel lieka daznai nepamatyta.
2. Atsirink subredditus. Daug upvotu nebutinai reiskia, kad tai teisu, tei tereiskia, kad tai patiko tiems kurie ziurejo posta, todel atitinkamai turi lankytis subreddituose kuriouse tiesa patinka - pvz /r/AskHistorians and /r/science, o ne /r/conspiracy.
3. Karma nieko nereiskia, bet tu visvien ziuresi i ta skaiciuka.
4. Perskiatyk subreddito taisykles pries postindamas ir komentuodamas. Sutaupysi tiek savo, tiek moderatoriu nervus.
Ah, I see. Thanks again, for the reply!
I've recently made a jump from Reddit is Fun to Reddit News to see what the fuss was about. Apart from minor issues with the search function, there's an obnoxious advert banner at the bottom...
I think I'll consider reinstalling RES.
I want to say yes, its the "unofficial" app for reddit, sooo I take that as the develop receives the ad revenue, but I could be mistaken.
That sucks. Finding one with that function for your platform will reduce a lot of drag. I like reddit is fun for Android. No experience with iPhones.
Found this new app, any of you guys interested in it? An anonymous text messaging app. You post your text message out there and anyone can respond to you, only using their own writing skills.
I've been using it and seems cool so far and was wondering if this is something ENTPs would be interested in? Might be cool to meet some of you guys through there.
This is the app. It's called 'Reddit is fun'.
That is a really vague question. You'll have to be more specific. There's no "best app", there's "best flashlight app", "best weather widget app", "best puzzle game", "best browser", etc...
Reddit is fun is really really nice.
I would highly advise using a third-party app. The official app is buggy and lacks many features desktop reddit has, I use reddit is fun, it works great and is much more usable.
If you wish, you can file a bug report regarding the official app in /r/redditmobile.
I've actually never used the official Reddit app because I heard bad things about it when it first came out (then again it was in its early stages). It's not the same, but I've always used Reddit is Fun and find it to be very fast, light, and easy to use. The dark theme is also really easy on the eyes.
^(also the private download folder option is nice for this sub so I can keep my yiff hidden)
If you have android, the reddit is fun app has great multireddit support. If you open the menu, there's a button called multis that lets you see a list of all your multireddits and from what I recall, it's not hard to add a new subreddit to one or remove a subreddit. It's been a while since I've modified mine so I don't remember the exact steps to take, but I know in the past I updated some from my phone.
> Android-version 4.4.2
That there is your problem, the current version of the app:
5.0 and up
You may check out Reddit is Fun for an alternative, but I am not 100% sure what the minimum requirements are for that one since it keeps a wider range of builds live.
Is this the one?
See where it says "unofficial"? Yeah. Not reddit's problem if an unofficial app doesn't support reddit's features.
I can tell you though that a proper mobile web browser can access quarantined subreddits just fine.
Depends on the app you use, but reddit is fun (may also be a thing on iOS, never checked) has /r/all filtering capabilities similar to RES.
Congrats on your success!
I currently use your competitor's app which is free:
I'd be willing to try your app if you offered it on Android with a limited free version (with ads), with the option to have more features unlocked with the paid version (and no ads).
Otherwise I'm not inclined to change over with having to pay $ upfront.
Honestly, with some of the devs that are out there, I feel like this is a waste of resources. Reddit would be much better served with adding a bit of scalability and usability to the core infrastructure... mod tools come to mind.
Or, if you feel as though a "mobile app" is really needed (rather than just a better "responsive design" mobile site), maybe you folks should have a bit of "a contest" to which apps work the best, or jive with the community a bit better (though, I also realize this is a bit of a "religious war" for some). And then, once the app is determined, extend an offer to buy existing code/projects off of their designers... or hell, maybe see if they want to come work for you full time (even better if you offer them the equivalent of patent royalties, or similar).
And no... I have no investment in any of the Reddit apps... though my personal preference for phone and tablet is Reddit is Fun on Android.
Oh, btw...I just recently started using the Reddit app for reading on my phone. Have you ever tried it?
It's OK, has some issues, but I liked it a lot better than using my browser app.
>I miss Readit on WP
Install reddit is fun on your android device and you will surely love it ... been using it on my MI3 ... baconit on WP is not upto reddit is fun man ... seriously I wish the developers port the reddit is fun to WP ...
I'm using the official one at the minute. They've improved it a lot. I did use reddit is fun, which was quite good but intermittently unstable. I see they have a higher rating and recent updates, must try it again.
