I'm the creator of the ad-free and open source Slide for Reddit, which has become one of the most popular 3rd party clients on Android over the last year, and is coming to iOS soon!
In high school, I started Slide with little development experience as a learning exercise, but my project ended up gaining a lot of popularity in the Android and FOSS community pretty quickly, and I ended up teaching myself everything I currently know about software development, UI design, customer service, and marketing. I am now studying software engineering (and have a part time marketing and photography position) in college, and creating other free and open source apps. You can AMA here if you'd like or I can do a more official AMA later this week if you're interested :)
I've installed Slide for reddit in the last week and have to admit that's the best reddit app I've used so far.
The really enthusiastic dev is the icing on the cake.
I don't think there is any reddit app available without a free version. Just try them out and see if you like it. I personally like Sync because of its UI and how it implemented material design. The image previews are very nice as well.
Link me: Now for Reddit, Relay for Reddit, Sync for Reddit, Slide for Reddit, BaconReader, RedReader
Edit: here is the correct link for Slide for Reddit.
Amazing developer too.
Links for the lazy: Play Store/F-Droid.
Edit : Added F-Droid link.
The article says that since 2013, the holes have been fixed. A lot of them are exploits through Chrome, about twenty major versions ago. Considering any user can download Chrome, if they don't have it stock, this potentially closes most of the gaps.
Chrome Custom Tabs power the Google app, so anything you search for using the app is "protected" by the mentioned fixes. Aside from that, a wide variety of third-party apps use Chrome Custom Tabs (one of my favorite features of Slide, for example), so any content viewed through them is also theoretically, "safe".
According to the list of affected devices, any user who is either on Android 5.0+, or uses Chrome is some capacity (be it Custom Tabs or as your browser), isn't affected by the exploits, as Android and Chrome already contain the fixes for them.
Slide - hands down the best client for Android ;)
All others are not even close :p
And it gets better over time, almost every week :D
Your link still shows the old icon. I was rather confused as to how it obeyed the rules. The Play Store shows the clever new icon.
Personally, I do like the top option because the colours really pop. However, the current one feels more complete for the sole reason that Snoo's head isn't cut off.
If you kept everything within the circle, like in #3, it might feel better. The Snoo used in #3 doesn't get my vote because the head alignment and size cuts too much and #1/2 feels odd with Snoo's "cheeks" cropped out and just dangling there outside the circle.
Actually the more I look at it, #1 and #2 have a Snoo+Android head hybrid feel to it; I'm not sure how I feel about that. The original may be to the point and the radio waves give it enough uniqueness it needs.
And looking into it further, Slide for reddit has a similar design but orange and more "slide"-ey.
Slide for reddit works really well on a tablet (ie. multicolumn support) plus the developer is active with adding a number of cool ideas I've not seen elsewhere (colour-coding, multireddit editing, flair support, image only browsing, among others). On a phone though, Relay seems to suit me better, so go figure.
Slide for reddit
Sync for reddit
Both are totally awesome apps!
switched from sync to slide
no ads is no ads and general feel and experience is the same, maybe even better... love the cashing of some subreddits for offline browsing
Slide for Reddit. My absolute favourite.
Slide for Reddit is a very nice, free (as in freedom) and open source one, if you care about that. Also available on F-Droid.
Slide is my personal favorite. It's has tons of customization and is one of the few apps that changes the nav bar colors to match the notification bar.
I use Slide for Reddit. It was made from scratch by an awesome developer who spend a lot of time listening to the community and improving the app for being the most functional one.
It has the two features that you are looking for.
Edit: Link of the client Slide for Reddit - Playstore link. And it's also Open Source!
I use Slide for Reddit, It has a nice design, tons of features, is highly configurable to your liking and is open source. Oh, and no ads. :)
If you use Android, the Slide for Reddit app can upload straight to imgur and paste the link into your comment (or post) for you. I imagine other apps can, too, but I can't say for sure.
Also, don't get me wrong, I hate imgur as much as the next guy. A once useful site had to sellout to stay alive and it shows. I don't blame the original creators for doing so, it just sucks for all of us. Fortunately, I never actually have to visit the site. :D
In theory, at some point, you should be able to upload images to Reddit easily, but I don't know when that's supposed to happen.
Wanted to keep my other comment clean of personal opinions.
I use Slide because being able to slide fluidly and flawlessly around the UI is a fantastic user experience. Customization out the wazoo. /u/ccrama is awesome. Etc., Etc.!
Slide For Reddit: I went from using relay religiously to sync to slide, and have tried RIF, Boost, Bacon, Redreader, FLow, and many more. I'm a huge fan of Slides UI, very intuitive and makes navigating a joy. With it's most recent 4.7.3 update, it's fixed a bug that was causing some lag and high cpu usage, and ever since it now on par with sync for smoothness/performance, but with a much better UI and feature set IMO. Highly recommend it.
Linkme: Slide for Reddit [BETA]
/r/slideforreddit (Play Store link) and /r/relayforreddit (Play Store link) both have excellent mod options, as does previously mentioned Sync. There are honestly no wrong answers when it comes to picking an Android client, so I recommend digging around the settings of each and seeing which fits your style best. They're all super customizable, and Slide can even mimic the look of RiF with the right setup.
I honestly think that Slide for Reddit has one of the best UIs available. It gets updated frequently, and the developer is pretty active on IRC for issues.
Don't see the link. Can you please confirm?
Does any of the browser activity go through your server, or does it all stay on the device?
Slide for Reddit also allows you to open a subreddit sidebar and edit your flair. ��
Currently Android only, but /u/ccrama has been hard at work on the iOS version. /r/slideforreddit
At first I used Sync and Relay because everybody said they're awesome... but I don't like them, after checking almost all reddit clients I finally found <strong>Slide</strong>.
It's just everything I needed, it has endless customization options and really nice features all other clients don't have or are not that good. It's "just" in beta stage, but I never had any issues and it gets better with every update, which you see almost every week :D
Give it a try :)
Copy and pasting this so you see it too:
Try Slide. It is open-source, which is reason enough that you should support it over the other Reddit clients.
But not only that, it will blow your mind with its levels of features and customization.
And all for free with no ads:
Anche nella versione gratuita non ha pubblicità ed è molto personalizzabile. Inoltre, nel proprio sub, lo sviluppatore è attivissimo e risponde a praticamente tutte le richieste.
Edit: evviva le ripetizioni!
I can't recommend Slide by /u/ccrama/ enough. Beautiful design, offline mode, lots of customization and options. Beautiful slide between each posts makes for a very fluid experience. Switched from Relay recently. Purchased the pro version almost immediately to support the dev!
Baconreader was alright but it's not a great reddit client. Try something like Slide for Reddit, among many things having working spoilers
I'll put in a good word about slide for reddit. Active dev, great design, ad free, open source(and you can make it look pretty similar to flow). I've gotten so used to it that I don't even want to try out boost that much, but it's great to see another contender.
I have the paid version of both, but Slide takes the cake for me. Relay has really nice animations, but Slide offers wayy more customizations. It also natively supports colored navbars & picture flairs.
>Slide for Reddit is a feature-packed, material-designed unofficial browser for Reddit with an easy to use UI and tons of customization. Slide is ad-free, open source, and is packed with many unique features! Slide is for everyone, with a broad array of features for power users and sleek design for minimalists.
Ya que se nombró Calibre, tienen algun buen lugar de dónde bajar libros para Kindle?
Slide for Reddit - Encuentro que es una de las mejores apps para Reddit que he visto, la verdad no sé por qué no más gente la usa
The two that I love are Slide for reddit
And Boost for reddit
Uhm i have no idea what version that is seeing as the newest one is 5.4.2. Are you sure you are talking about "Slide for reddit"
Have you installed the app from the playstore here: [link]
I've been using Slide for a year now, and it's the best client I've ever used. It's ad-free, open source and fairly customizable. And it's soon going to be available in iOS too.
10/10, definitely recommend.
> How on earth am i supposed to click those on mobile with my sausage fingers.
Use Slide for Reddit with large links enabled? ;)
Ja itsellä on Slide. Hyvät kustomointimahdollisuudet käyttöliittymälle, mutta subilista on täyspaska ja reddittin oma video player on toimii vittumaisesti.
For Reddit, I cannot recommend SLIDE enough. I really liked ReddPlanet for wp and Slide allows me to customize it that it's almost like RP.
Try Slide. I really like it. Just switched from my previous client that I've used for years.
Slide for Reddit works in a similar way -- it opens the source when you click on the thumbnail and opens the comments when you click on the title
Slide for Reddit and Sync for Reddit both do this. I personally use Slide and use this when i'm eating all the time. Might only do top comments, though.
If you haven't already, I'd give the latest version of Slide a try. The latest official update has improved speed and smoothness of everything like tenfold. :)
I have tried a few different apps and have stuck with Slide for Reddit and Joey for Reddit the longest.
I would add Slide to that list. Personally I'm on Sync now, have been for about a year now, but I loved Slide when I first started using Reddit. Boost is also a great app, honestly, these three are top notch, I've just grown used to Sync. All of them have a set of unique features but neither is lacking in any way.
You downloaded the source code which needs to be compiled before it is able to run.
You can download the app from the play store here
I highly recommend Slide. It has a night theme as well, you can set it up to be automatic, and is beautiful with tons of options.
Some apps might have the ability to tag users, I use Slide for Reddit which has a tag user option but not sure about the other apps out there.
How do you like the Shield tablet? I used to have one but I got rid of it because I found the battery would drain incredibly fast while in idle. I'd set it down and come back to a dead device an hour later.
Wooooooow hold on, you just need Slide, trust me, the best app, all other have here and there some cool features, but this one is the best of all worlds. I previously also owed and used an iPhone and reddit apps, Slide is really the best in comparison ��
Relay é muito bom mas as propagandas me incomodam muito.
Slide for Reddit quando configurado é tão bom quanto o Relay e não tem propagandas.
If you're on an Android phone, use Slide for Reddit (/r/slideforreddit). An iOS version is coming soon.
Reddit Slide has two different AMOLED themes, one that's pure black and one with a bit of contrast. I've used it and Relay for a very long time and I think both are excellent, but Slide is much more robust in terms of customization, imo.
Slide for Reddit has the most mod tools out of all Android reddit apps, including cool features like 'remove with reason'.
I'd recommend Slide for Reddit.
Nice UI, pretty smooth and comes with offline.
Until DBrady (if he does) implements offline mode.
They're formatted as a link. Reddit sucks.
A solution is to use a real Reddit app. On Android, I highly recommend Slide for Reddit. Don't use the official Reddit app. It's terrible.
<strong>Slide for Reddit</strong> - Free with IAP - Rating: 88/100 - Search for 'FX Explorer' on the <strong>Play Store</strong>. Look at all of the features now in the world and test the phones rigorously.
I'd suggest switching over to Slide for Reddit it plays any video file used here or /r/soccer in app. Much much better than the official Reddit app.
Slide for reddit. Nessuna pubblicità anche nella versione gratuita, open source e personalizzabilissima. La versione pro è gratuita se scaricata da f-droid.
Per quanto riguarda le opzioni di risparmio dati sono queste.
Forward about bias before syaing more: I have contributed time (testing) and resources (money) to the dev.
Slide for Reddit is amazing. Google Play page. You name a feature on the desktop version of Reddit and Slide is likely to have it (or more!). I honestly find myself hating Reddit on desktop (even with RES) and pulling out my phone to Reddit.
No, the app is free. However there is a paid upgrade. Because the imgur functionality is actually part of the free app and not the pro upgrade, the slide dev might have found a loophole in the ToS.
Diese Frage löst Kriege aus, die häufigst genannten sind Sync, Slide, Relay & Reddit is fun.
Ich persönlich nutze Slide for reddit. Sieht gut aus und ist quelloffen (=>kostenlos).
Wenn du Fragen zu der App hast, darfst du sie mir auch gerne stellen, da ich einer der Entwickler bin.
An alle neuen, die die Kommentare hier lesen: Ein Link zur sogenannen Rediquette: [link]. Darin wird kurz aufgeführt, was von Reddit-Nutzern erwartet wird.
Zusätzlich würde ich euch als Android-Nutzer empfehlen, eine App zuzulegen, da die mobile Seite nicht sehr gut ist. Beispiel
Har Androidlur och använder appen Slide for Reddit. När jag skriver så får jag upp mitt standardtangentbord och det har en "smileyknapp". ��
> Do you have crap reception?
Sometimes, but not all the time
>Also what is that slide app?
(Slide for Reddit is the app is use to browse reddit)[[link]]
>Judging from the screenshots it looks like you are using your phone quite extensively. It is what it is
That's the thing, I really don't think use it quite extensively :/
I prefer slide as my Reddit app although sync and relay are also good. For shorter apps I would suggest you to use all google apps that you find use for. That way syncing between devices and other apps becomes easier. Also you maybe can get more use out of assistant. You can go through all the google apps here.
Slide for Reddit is a rock-solid material-designed unofficial browser for Reddit with an easy to use UI and tons of customization. Slide is ad-free, open source, and is packed with many unique features!
Dear /u/scribblenik, I strongly suggest you try Slide to browse Reddit. It's the best one I've tried so far, and I think I tried all of them.
>I wish you could follow reddit pages
Oh haha, now I gets it. You were wishing, but I thought you are already able to follow pages on reddit and you're wishing I could do that too (follow your page), that's why I asked how I should follow your page but didn't understand u said that as a wish. Actually I don't think that's even possible on Reddit. But as I mentioned there's this SlideForReddit Android/IOS app that has this feature that you can enable Notify for certain subs (like YouTube notifications) so you get notified when a post submits to that sub. But I couldn't get it to work and although I put it to notify me but it never does. I guess something's wrong with my push notifications or Rom you try it not for this but many other features although it's not completely free.
There's another feature that I really like about Slide, with my messed up memory, that you can tag people so you see the tag in a blue background in front of theirs post/comments so you understand that's he/she. You're "suidude with idea" in my book :P, and choice of sui is that I can remember that's from this sub. I mean that's not like I wont be able to remember this for always but that I have a pretty messed up memory for first encounter bit after a couple times seeing someone username/first name I will remember it.
I use the Reddit desktop site when I'm browsing Reddit on a desktop, which is pretty rare. I also use the mobile site sometimes, in case I want to see something on Reddit but have something else open in the best Reddit app out there: Slide for Reddit, download now! ^/ad
You should add a link to your flair to your subreddit if it's possible. I just started using it, seems to be a great app. For other looking [link]
Don't know about iPhone but on Android "Slide for Reddit" is pretty much the same as WM10 Readit, i was surprised how many elements are similar/identical on that app.

Last year's senior prank was just stupid. A bunch of seniors started throwing snowballs at the staff, and ended up getting chased by the school police officer, and I believe suspended.
Do you own slide for reddit?
How many reddit apps support ponymotes?
(/hmmm) LinkMe: Slide for Reddit
edit: I think I did it wrong. This is probably the app OP is talking about
Proba sam puno aplikacija za reddit i mogu reć da je na Androidu Slide definitivno najbolji, po mom mišljenju. Osim šta ima sve moguće korisne funkcije uz to izgleda super. Free verzija nema reklame, Pro verzija od $4 nudi neke dodatne funkcije i isplati se :)
Slide for Reddit. La mejor app que hay hoy me parece (y eso que vengo de Sync Pro antes). Además el dev es un fenómeno. Actualiza todo el tiempo, le va agregando cosas y encima escucha a los usuarios!
Slide for Reddit hat Flair-Optionen. Wenn du in der Übersicht in nem Subreddit bist von der rechten Kante nach links wischen und dann hast du da die "Flair"-Option.
[link] (Die kostenlose Version ist übrigens Open Source und werbefrei)
You can easily switch to the US App Store by making another account.
As for me, I've tried both apps, and I'm sticking to AlienBlue for now until most of the kinks are ironed out on the official app. That being said, the mobile site works pretty okay most of the time as well.
If ever you or anyone is on Android, Slide for Reddit is an amazing app. Ad-free and open source!
Earlier I had Rif , now I use slide for reddit on android, it's the best app for Reddit in my opinion.
I know it's late and no one will probably see it but please check it out.
Robinhood. It's on Android and iOS. Also sorry for the late reply, I have Slide for Reddit looks for messages every couple days.
link to Robinhood
Io consiglio Slide for reddit che è senza pubblicità (anche senza versione pro) ed ha un'infinità di opzioni e utilità varie
Slide For Reddit. Best Reddit client in my opinion. It's by far the most customizable with the most amount of options and view/layout types. Was previously a Relay for Reddit user and I find it much better :)
Use of the loser flag is not okay but I'm still nice enough to suggest a reddit app called slide. The user experience is much nicer.
Slide for Reddit does ��
It looks amazing, too!
Slide for Reddit 4.5/5 stars (4,703 ratings)
Slide for Reddit is a rock-solid material-designed unofficial browser for Reddit with an easy to use UI and tons of ...
^ That's what Gboard gave me
No the official reddit app is not the best app for browsing reddit. In my opinion. I use Slide for reddit. It has a free version without ads and a paid version also it comes with a lot more functionality than other apps.
Since you're on Reddit, you could just browse some NSFW subs with your favorite Reddit app. Slide has a nice gallery mode that could be useful.
On desktop I use the Imagus browser extension, and on mobile the Slide for Reddit app.
This way the only time I need to deal with the interface of the actual website of Imgur, is when I want to upload some images. But I guess there would be tools for this too, if I had searched around a little.
Also in the XFCE desktop environment (for Linux) the builtin screenshot app supports uploading to imgur, so at least for screenshots I can use that.
Lo hace Imgur adrede porque sino no pueden mostrarte ads. Usá un cliente de reddit que te muestre las imágenes en la misma ventana y ya! Estoy probando Slide y tiene entre otras cosas eso, fijate si te sirve.
Lulz. That's hilarious. Also, what that guy said, [text](link). There are ~~a few~~ tons good clients for reddit also that have a lot of the ^"shortcode" built in. I use Slide for Android personally.
on Android I tested all the available reddit apps and i kept Slide, (the free version is far enough and there are no ads)
on iOs device the Reddit official app works pretty good to me.
Get a better client? For example Slide for Reddit can change flairs of submissions (Google Play Link). Or post later from a computer?
Slide is the best I've found. It has a YouTube plugin that allows you to view the video without leaving the app! Very customizable and intuitive!
Slide for Reddit. It's the best I've seen AND it has no ads (unlike Reddit is Fun and most others). It's also open source, if you're into that.
Unless you use Slide or some other reddit client that renders them correctly
Slide is the only mobile reddit client I've found that correctly renders code block, or lets you navigate to the next post while viewing the comments
Try using Slide and the video plugin. It works really well for me.
As far as open source Reddit apps on F-Droid go, I strongly prefer Slide for Reddit. It's also available on the Play Store.
Use Slide and the video plugin for it. Works every time.
I don't know what app you're using. I personally switch between two apps: Slide and Joey. Would you like to try them out to see if you can save images there?
