Perverted by advertising and inappropriate mobile app advertsUsed to be a great app - but now I just get perverse ads for hookup games from bots in my feeds that I have no interest in. Used to be a great app and now it’s annoying so uninstalling.Version: 2020.24.0

Keeps kicking me out to home screen.If I change to another app mid-thread then return to the reddit app, there’s a better than even chance I’ll wind up back on the home page and have to wade my way to the thread I was on and start scrolling like hell..Version: 4.24.1

Reddit CensorshipReddit has removed a lot of subreddits that don’t fit into the main stream political ideology. Complete censorship, good bye Reddit!.Version: 2020.23.0

Was ok on iPad, now a lot worseThis used to be a pretty good app, but they just released some kind of update to their video player (and lets face it, a lot of reddit content is videos). It’s just astonishing that someone thought this was a good idea. Tapping on the comments button takes you to full screen video (wut?). Then, to see comments there’s an annoying slider thing at the bottom of the screen which is too close to the app close gesture that is native to the iPad. And then to return to the home screen you Whoever thought this was a good UX improvement should reconsider their career. Please revert. To get out of full screen video you swipe right (there’s no close full screen button) which cause the video to swipe UP. It’s a total mess..Version: 2021.23.0

I love the app, here are some suggestionsI love reddit, the layout is great the content is as good as the internet can provide and the service is great. However I believe we should be able to get an in app NSFW button and an in app section to show us what email we are using, or at least a setting to change it in app. Recently I have had trouble and been in need of this as I have forgotten what one of my three main emails my account is linked to, and in the future I would like to be able to change it in app. this is a small thing but, because I have forgotten my password I can not log into the desktop site and enable nsfw. This has degraded my experience and made it a lot more of a hassle to use reddit and change my preference of nsfw items, thanks..Version: 4.22.2

Where are my communities?Well, it finally happened - I finally ditched the official Reddit app for a Reddit client. A lot of users have had issues with many of the updates and general usability of the official app over the last couple of years but I hung in there. The final straw for me was when an update released a couple of weeks ago made it so my communities no longer display and it times out whole searching for them. I researched it, and others are experiencing the same thing which has been reported to Reddit but no fix has been provided in the handful of subsequent updates. I tried out a few other options and landed on an app that is reminiscent of Reddit’s glory days, complete with a responsive developer who interacts with the community and updates the app based on suggestions from actual users. Sorry Reddit, I love the platform but your app has degenerated so much I’ve decided it’s time to go - I’m leaving you for a third party app. Even if this bug were to be fixed and you change your ways, I’m happy with my new crush and don’t foresee myself coming back to you. It was fun while it lasted and I’ll look back on those years fondly, but you’ve changed for the worst - best of luck to you and your developers. Off I go, to spend time with my new Reddit squeeze :).Version: 2022.14.0

Avoid at all costsApple didn’t post my original review and this needs to be read. I’ve used Reddit for quite some time, usually just browsing through topics. The ONE time I shared my own personal experience with wanting advice about cutting off a sibling, Reddit refused to post it. Not only that, but I got an incredibly nasty message from a modifier saying I didn’t use a “trigger warning” and that I’m not allowed to talk about what someone else does. So essentially, I was not allowed to discuss reasons I felt my sibling was not a good person? I got a permanent ban. Meanwhile, there are posts on there about illegal substance usage, people cheating on spouses, and worse..I can’t share a story about growing up with a sibling I don’t get along with??? I’ve since deleted Reddit. There is NO free speech on that platform and the cowardly modifiers have absolutely no lives with far too much “power” behind their computer screens. I will never use their website and deleted my account after giving a piece of my mind to the modifier. If you’re considering this app, don’t. Run the other way, find another community. You will be censored if you try to contribute to a conversation..Version: 2022.14.0

It’s decentJust like the title says, I think the app (and by extension, the desktop site) are decent, however it has its flaws. Firstly, I get a notice saying “Sorry, can’t reach Reddit” every single time I start the app. I tried deleting and redownloading but I’m still having this issue. It also takes a very long time to load. Additionally, I don’t think this point will be taken into account at all but it’ll be nice if you considered it. Get rid of the downvote button. One thing I’ve noticed in particular is that users tend to use the downvote leisurely, rather than for the reason it’s there in the first place. It’s disheartening when posts that are made with good intentions get downvoted for unexplained reasons. On a more positive note, I’m completely addicted to this app (and site). It’s where I catch up on all the latest news within my fandoms!.Version: 4.8.0

Recently become terrible, better alternatives.The app used to be decent, the video player was good enough, the ads and recommendations didn’t litter the UI. You could view your subscribed subreddits easily. It was decent, there were a few issues but nothing too annoying. The recent changes on the other hand have made me stop using the app completely and move to a different one. The video player now takes up the entire screen by default and doesn’t show comments, it doesn’t load a bunch of times. Ads everywhere. Recommendations everywhere for live streams and other subreddits. If I wanted to watch that stuff I’d go and watch it myself. At least let the user turn it off. When you now go to see your subscribed subreddits you now get, guess what, more recommendations (communities), and you have to click another button to go past that to your subreddits. I don’t know what they’re thinking, honestly feels to me like they are purposely doing bad user experience choices to push people of the app. Don’t know why they would want to do that though, I highly highly recommend using a different app until they fix the issues, if they ever do..Version: 2021.26.0

Latest updates are ruining this appI am a long time user of the Reddit mobile app and haven’t had any problems up until the release of the latest updates. One major problem is the new video player. Any time you try to open a gif or video, you’re forced to view it in Tik Tok format. It is absolutely dreadful to try and read the comment section of posts with this sort of media. This new feature alone makes the app borderline unusable. Another issue with the latest updates is that the home feed is now filled with posts from communities that you are not subscribed to. If I wanted to see that content, I would be following those communities, so seeing those posts on my feed is annoying. It is very clear that they are trying to mimic the features of other social media, and in doing so, they are ruining the app. A lot of what made this app good in the first place was the fact that it wasn’t like every other social media. Tons of Reddit users have voiced their dislike for these new features and things need to be fixed..Version: 2021.25.0

Has been improving, could use more privacy optionMaybe I don't want every subreddit I've visited listed in search. But this app was steadily improving … until a couple weeks ago. The new video player is hot garbage, the most stunning decline in quality I’ve ever seen in an app. There is clearly very little testing done on standard sized iPads. Landscape mode videos make viewing comments impossible. Try portrait mode videos and the end of comments get chopped off. I get that volunteers dev this but this is amateur hour. Get more testers or stop developing..Version: 2021.27.0

LolThis app is heavily leftist and ideological and doctrine propaganda is clearly evident on the timeline. Never seen such a cesspool..Version: 2021.45.0

Banned for no reasonThis app is so sensitive. I got heavily downvoted then BANNED PERMANENTLY for saying ‘I think you need to read the post again..’ which the person did.. He asked a question that was ANSWERED IN THE POST and was heavily informed about that exact question. And since I got downvoted hard, and I guess some people reported me, I got banned. I tried to make another account but they banned that one too. I’m scared that they banned my IP address because my mom uses Reddit and I don't want her account to get banned just because mine did.. I looked up this issue and this is a HUGE problem on reddit. You literally can’t have your own opinion on this app, or say anything that will POSSIBLY upset people. And if you do, its downvotes, downvotes, downvotes. Then it will be led by subreddit banning or permanent banning. I can understand if someone was being racist, homophobic or just disrespectful. But I see the simplest comments get downvoted. One time, on r/aww it was a video of a woman with her dog at the gym and the dog was being cute or whatever. Some people were wondering why she was allowed to have a dog at the gym so someone answered saying, “She owns the gym, so thats why the dog is there:)” and it had -30 DOWNVOTES??!! WHY?! People on that app are SO sensitive! And they were right!! I looked it up and she did own the gym! And guess what? I tried to click on their account and it was banned. Probably for literally just that one comment. Do better Reddit..Version: 2022.07.0

Good content but bad U.IThe 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.Version: 2021.28.0

Better without unnecessary changesThe devs just can’t seem to keep this app the way it is. This was perfect a few months to a year ago and now there are so many new completely pointless features that either don’t work at all, most of the time or are so useless you’ll never use it anyway. The current video player as I write this is completely unusable. It never loads the video you actually opened and there is no way to get to the comments easily. And as you struggle to open the comments to the video you didn’t want to watch the sound now stays ON even when the video isn’t on the screen as you finally get down to the comment section Let’s all remember that the video player has been in the Reddit mobile forever and it has worked perfectly fine (if not a little slow bc Reddit servers) and has never needed a big overhaul like this and yet it happened anyway and it doesn’t even work!!.Version: 2021.28.0

Ruined by June 11 UpdateSo 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..Version: 2021.22.0

Cannot switch from safari to appOften , 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..Version: 2021.28.0

New update is broken and frustratingAfter the new 2022 update where they removed the communities tap and put in a discovery tab is just annoying. I’m still not use to it. I keep clicking it trying to get to my communities by mistake. I already follow all the communities I want to, and if I want to find a new community for an interest, I just search it in the search bar. Plus the “drawer” for my communities does not work. Every time I click it, it doesn’t load anything. So basically I haven’t even been able to use Reddit for the past few weeks since the update. No point in using the app till this problem is fixed. The Communities tab needs to go back down to the hot bar. And the discovery tab should be moved elsewhere. Maybe it can pop up after selecting the search bar. That way if someone wants to search for new communities, they can get recommendations under the search bar before they start typing. Also bring back the alphabet select for communities we follow. It makes searching through 100+ communities easier. Summary: new update is broken and can’t access my communities drawer because nothing loads. And the new discovery tab that replaced the communities tab needs to be moved elsewhere, and the communities tab needs to go back down to the bottom for quick access..Version: 2022.10.0

The video player is impossible to useThe video player has recently been updated and is now completely impossible to use on iPhone. The scrub bar is so low that you cannot scrub through a video without exiting the app! How did that get through testing?! Not to mention that when you click on ‘comments’ for some reason it takes you to a full screen video instead of taking you to, you know… THE COMMENTS. Why?! And the videos won’t load full screen, you have to exit back out to watch the video. Have your developers gone on holiday and you’ve replaced them with particularly dexterous goldfish?.Version: 2021.28.0

Somebody Janked Up iOS Users Posting This UpdateSooooo... I literally CAN NOT post anywhere now because I am getting the message "Not Allowed In This Community" on every single subreddit. I can comment, vote, give awards, and even spend currency on your app without any issue... ??!!BUT I CAN'T POST ANYWHERE BECAUSE YOUR iOS APP IS MAKING ME AS EITHER NSFW OR SOMETHING ALONG THAT LINES THAT'S LEFT ME BARRED FROM DOING THE ONE THING I USE REDDIT FOR!!?? It's not just myself but also many other iOS users whom are experiencing the exact same problem with no response, fix in app, tech support, or an update to fix this MAJOR BUG. If you aren't aware of this issue by now then you should be. An I can go figure you are all well aware; but you just don't care unless it is affecting a large majority, all users, or could hinder the income of this lazy but more than capable to be a better company regardless of current worth it should/could be... Money and Power must truly be something... Because every company that is built on a foundation of users like myself; every last one of these companies have forgotten why they are running a social networking community to begin with. For the user becomes a thing of the past... Every time... An it becomes ALL ABOUT HOW MUCH MORE OF A PERCENT THEY CAN NET NEXT ROUND.Version: 2021.38.0

Updated Video UI Is the Last StrawThe 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..Version: 2021.21.0

DisgustingThis app is disgusting , child pornography is not it , my daughter is on this app and she is only 14 this app should be deleted and banned , it is illegal and disgusting to see my daughter up there for thousands of grown men around the world to see , reddit needs to be shut down for good!!!!!! This is not right , and it truely disturbs me on the amount of videos and photos I have come across with other girls and guys doing things that aren’t appropriate for people… this app needs to be deleted and banned because I would not want my daughter to be stalked and watched because of something other people seen on this app , it’s truely disgraceful where this world has come to , delete this app or there will be consequences, stay safe y’all 😚.Version: 2022.13.1

Needs block filter URGENTLYDear Reddit creators, I have used Reddit for many years as a means to connect with other people of similar communities but the lack of a block filter has become increasingly annoying. To my knowledge there is no way to block a subreddits content from MY feed without upgrading to premium. There are many things I’d rather not see on Reddit when I’m simply scrolling through my gaming communities looking for updates and such. I have seen something so disgusting today I’ve had to delete Reddit all together due to the mental health crisis it spiraled me into. As someone who has dealt with crippling mental illness for years and spent countless days in therapy working through problems, having one single post set me back months on my progress is unacceptable. I know I’m not the only person who is suffering from this. All I want is to be able to see feeds from the subs I have joined so I don’t risk my mental health while looking at a thread of Pokémon related content. Do better! And just an added touch, NSFW content does not cover many of the things that I have been personally triggered by in subs I am not a part of nor have I ever shown interest in..Version: 2022.06.0

Fire those people who work in the appeals department.My account was permanently suspended without a given reason, and when I sent an appeal, all my alt accounts were permanently suspended as well. I made a new account only to find it banned as well and I didn’t even post yet. So I got banned without a given reason, ask politely for an appeal and receive an IP ban as a result. What is this logic? I use Reddit for homework and French help and I was actually doing better in French because of it. All I ask for is an account I can use for homework purposes and apparently that’s too much to ask for. And that person who decided to ban me is a sad, sad excuse for a human..Version: 2020.17.0

An “offical” app which is officially uselessUnfortunately I was forced to install and use this app since the latest apple iOS update made Reddit Blue unusable on my iPad. Sorry Reddit I didn’t change because of the invasive advertisement for your offical app, which appears on almost everything (it also covers half the screen). I used Reddit Blue comfortably for years, albeit with the casual crash. Fortunately the offical app doesn’t have that issue, and for the most part it is a solid app, but it is far from perfect. A particularly aggravating issue is the tendency for gifs and videos to not load. And the only solution reported seems to be to completely reset the app. Which also interrupts the place you were reading. Considering Reddit seems to be 50% gifs and videos I would say this is pretty far from okay. Researching this issue shows that it has been known about for over a entire year and the developers seem to either or not car or are to incompetent to fix it. I never used the offical app because it was never good years ago and now I’ve been stripped of a choice..Version: 4.24.1

Please let me remove the scroll button!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..Version: 2021.16.0

I haven’t had any issues with the app till now—video player, I’m looking at you.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..Version: 2021.22.0

Wasteful echo chamberSave yourself lots of time and don’t signup. Gross echo chamber that will censor any narrative that goes against what is accepted in the mainstream.Version: 2021.47.0

Pretty annoying app to useMany faults, technical errors and unnecessary and grating features. I don’t know how Reddit still fails to upvote and downvote posts without sometimes saying that such a simple action can’t be done and without the app refusing to do it until I press it again. The same with making posts. It’s not that difficult to allow users to make posts when they want to, these simple things need to be fixed. The option to “see less” of recommended communities and to turn on my location (and when I do turn on my location, recommended posts and subs that are popular in my area) does absolutely nothing. Stop pretending like that option is there when everyone knows that pressing that button doesn’t do anything. It’s so annoying and people will continue to rate the app low until the option to completely remove these annoyances is genuinely given to us..Version: 4.36.0

CensorshipThis app use to be the best part of my day , it’s now a absolutely joke , the admins are power hungry ban machines..Version: 2020.17.0

Latest video UI is trashI love using this app but the latest video UI is trash and really makes me close the app angrily a couple of times. It’s so complicated reading the comments on a video. I pause the video, click on comments and then the video starts playing. Half of the time, the scroll to next comment arrow is missing. Its a headache..Version: 2021.26.0

Spam popup asking me to upvoteTheres is a new feature asking you to upvote every time you read a post. Dumb and annoying, if I want to upvote it I’m a big boy I’ll upvote it..Version: 2021.23.0

Best social media but ruined by left wing nutsI would say this is the best social media app I've ever used but unfortunately it's full of far left communists and unless you subscribe to rare and unpopular channels, you will find your voice silenced and any view diverging from the mainstream status quo is downvoted and never seen again. Yet another awesome idea ruined by politics.Version: 4.20.0

Great mobile experience that needs to be tuned for iPadI’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..Version: 2021.23.0

Terrible video player changesReddit have recently changed their video player to a totally dysfunctional clone of the TikTok video player. It’s far inferior to their previous video player, in the sense that it’s barely functional, and is symbolic of them attempting to clone successful features from other apps without understanding that Reddit content isn’t the same. Furthermore, despite overwhelmingly negative feedback in regards to the changes from the community, Reddit refuse to listen, giving the view that they don’t care about their users - something that is becoming increasingly apparent as the years go on - for reference I’ve been a Redditor for 6 years. Avoid this app. There are plenty of others available that are superior to this clunky, confused and ill-managed app..Version: 2021.28.0

Can't load gifsThe user interface is very nice but recently the app fails to load gifs. I have to open the link in a dedicated web browser or another app like Apollo to get it to load. Why does this app struggle so much with them??.Version: 4.24.1

You cannot have an opinion and you have to think the same way everyone else does :/!The issue with Reddit is you can’t actually have an opinion, and by that I mean valid opinions that are harmless such as which chip flavor is better or little things like that. The downvote feature penalizes you for getting downvoted, such as it’ll hide your comments or not let you post on certain subreddits if you don’t have enough. For example on the hello fresh subreddit, there was a question asking if they think the price is worth it and only people who agreed yes had upvotes and they downvoted anyone who said they personally didn’t feel like it was worth it. You make a thread asking a question and to have people voice their different harmless opinions, yet they got downvoted? This just proves you have to think the same mindset as everyone else, which is just not how the real world works. The downvote feature should be replaced with if a comment gets reported a certain amount of time it’s automatically deleted, since there could be racist comments or creepy ones that need to get deleted which is understandable. Yet it’s tiring to get downvoted for simple things. People will literally go as far as checking your whole post history and page just to add on to a downvote and prove their point, which is super … odd to me. I honestly just don’t like posting at this point, because even for simple questions I get downvoted if people find it too boring, which is dumb..Version: 2022.05.0

Horrible Video PlayerThe video player was perfectly fine as it was, and felt more natural due to it having the same UI design as the text or photo posts. The new one however, is jarring due to it switching to the RPAN/counterfeit TikTok UI design and is quite frankly frustrating to use due to the player swiping to a new video when one is trying to swipe off the post. The “Communities” tab has been turned into an explore page (Bootlegging TikTok again I see, also wasn’t that the point of All/Popular?) with you having to tap an extra arrow to access it. The point of UI design is that you’re supposed to reduce the amount taps/clicks to make it easier for people to access things, not to increase the amount of taps/clicks and make things harder for people to access. Get a grip, Reddit..Version: 2021.25.0

Confusing premiseReddit seems like it doesn’t know what it wants to be. Is it a social media site where you can share posts with friends? Apparently not. They take their internet “karma” points so seriously that if you interact with the same posts and comments as your friends and family, Reddit will flag all of your accounts as voter manipulation. This especially occurs if the people are using the same wifi. Reddit has serious issues with revenge P, bullying, and misinformation, yet it appears in their agenda to go after small families with warnings and suspensions for upvoting the same comments. A website/company that goes after their small users for sharing posts with their immediate family is not one that I want to recommend to others. And, a company that cannot separate true vote manipulation - ie bots and software - from a family socializing and bonding over Reddit posts, is a site that needs to reevaluate whether it is a social site at all. They apparently desire to control people’s lives outside of the app and expect all users to remain anonymous even to their own family member’s accounts. So what kind of social media platform/forum is Reddit?.Version: 2021.38.0

Garbage app for even worse peopleThe whole site is filled with unfunny pretentious people who do nothing except circle jerk and hate on alternative opinions. Mods are losers, the average user is just some dude who wants to be a part of something, and so on.Version: 2021.30.0

Actual hot garbageMy iPhone X was sitting on my desk while I was playing games with friends on my PC. My phone randomly started playing audio, like a podcast or long as or video or something so I closed Spotify and Firefox just in case, but it kept playing. The lock screen/control center thing for iPhone even said NOTHING was playing. I closed Reddit and the audio playback stopped. While using this app before, it has played incorrect videos/audio randomly while trying to read completely unrelated posts, but this is a whole new level; I hadn't touched my phone in over an hour and Reddit somehow starts playing audio. I immediately removed the app from my device and came here to take a dump on this app. I don't even have HeySiri enabled or anything on this device, so it wasn't triggered by a voice command and the phone was locked/asleep. I don't know what this company is trying to pull with this app but enough is enough and I can wholeheartedly recommend that absolutely no one bother with using this app, beware. Honestly I expected more from both Apple and Reddit in this regard. Find alternatives..Version: 2021.33.0

Arguably the worst video player integration ever.Title says it all really. The old video player wasn’t perfect by any means, but dear god does this new one make it look nigh on perfect. Want to pause the video? Click the tiny pause button in the corner. Oh, that’s right, on an iPad it’s ridiculously small. And the UI is split between the pause button on the left and the rest of it on the right. Makes it awfully awkward to use the video player on all devices. Want to view comments on a video? Click on the video and then click on the small comment box to go to a different screen. That’s if the video UI doesn’t disappear because then you can’t access the comments without clicking off the video and clicking on it again. Want to see the comments on a video that’s in the suggested posts row/posts you may like row? Good luck. You can only do that if you can see the v.reddit link at the top of the post. If that’s obscured, or it’s an imgur link, then you actually can’t view the comments at all. I’m not sure why Reddit, a website that encourages user interaction, is making it so hard to access comments. Also, fundamentally the new video player is a mess and trying way to hard to be like TikTok. Please stop, Reddit. It’s like your middle aged dad trying to be young and “hip”. Not everyone has to be like that..Version: 2021.26.0

Banned for speaking the truth.I saw a news piece on the news section stating. Things in regards to sex change operations for transgender‘s. Along with how kids should be able to start taking steps to transition as young as the age of four. So I then commented that I do not believe that it is right that taxpayer dollars should have to pay for a transitioning surgery. If it’s so important and you want it done you should get it done yourself with your own money and not tax payer dollars. And I also said that for young people they should not be able to take any steps in regards to transitioning until they are adults themselves. They should not even be thinking about that kind of stuff let alone start transitioning at 4 years old. I cannot believes that these honest and truthful statements were enough to get me banned but there are Reddit pages with such gruesome stuff that is not a problem . But because what I said is truthful and a hard pill to swallow by many I was banned. And they won’t even let me delete my account now. I will never support the organization that allows one very sensitive side to silence another without valid reason. I do not and will never support Reddit. They are fearful to let facts or truth of one side be on their site. Show which way their organization leans. :: I’ll give you a hint it’s not in the direction of free speech. I am not afraid to speak the truth and never will..Version: 2022.09.0

Stop force feeding hideous quantity of Popular on Reddit & Because you showed an interest in DRIVELPlease stop the force feeding of this hideous quantity of “Popular on Reddit” & “Because you showed an interest in” etc DRIVEL suggestions into my feed. I really wish I had not updated the app. The sheer quantity of “popular on Reddit now” and “because you showed an interest in” garbage spamming up my feed is staggering, to the point of making me not want to use the app on this device now. I’ve tried asking it to show fewer from those communities but it just keeps finding more garbage to shove into my feed, sometimes as frequent as every 3rd or 4th post. Seriously stop this. I don’t mind the promoted adds that have always appeared occasionally, I can accept that you need the revenue from those. But all these other “suggestions” Please for the love of god let me disable and turn those off. It’s ruined the experience for me overnight. (I’d not updated the app in a few weeks maybe more) Meanwhile I’m going to ditch Reddit for iPad and use my MacBook where the browser plug-in lets me hide all suggestion garbage as well as the adverts in one click. I have faith you will fix this =).Version: 2021.38.0

What a shameI love reddit, I spend inordinate a Libra of time daily there. Well I did. The new app is full of poor choices that seem to have been done to transform it into TikTok. The video player is now broken, scrolling through casually is broken, reading comments on videos broken. Can’t even pause a video while scrolling. The whole design is just not user friendly now. Then the annoying notifications to join subs or to like posts whenever you purposely didn’t in the first place. Disappointing that Reddit didn’t listen or engage their users. I use Reddit because I expect more, expect better than other social networks. There has not been one single post about liking the updates. Go check out r/redditmobile..Version: 2021.22.0

Full of pretentious, and toxic peopleI’ve been a part of several communities within Reddit and by and large the feedback and comments I get from Redditors is unbelievably pretentious. Redditors assume this intellectual moral high ground solely on the basis of them using and contributing to, this app (believing it to be a niche site for intellectuals and deep thinkers). This outlook turns the vast majority of them into pretentious know it alls that will shoot down or poke holes in any post you have. Reddit as community sharing platform is superb, but once more, the vast majority of the users are complete regrettably a$$holes. Thanks for reading..Version: 2021.38.0

Video player brokenGreat app. But when I open, or try to open videos it takes me to a random one now. Ruins the app. Unusable.Version: 2021.27.0

App is currently broken…………..again.Currently, they appear to have just given up on making the iPad app work correctly, after multiple updates since the start of the year. Can’t view comments on the majority of video types. Good job this is a free app. Works fine on iPhone though, so go figure. Previous review, after another previous review: They obviously didn’t bother checking that the iPad app still worked correctly after the latest update………….again. Can’t view/read/post comments in any post with a video in it………..can only view the video. Once fixed, which going by the update notes will be next year, I’ll try and remember to update my score to the four stars I mentioned in my previous review. Previous review, earlier in the year: Whoever thought it was a good idea to mess with the video player should admit they were wrong and put it back to the way it was before, when I would’ve rated the app a four star at least. Random videos play, they stop playing when going full screen and can’t be restarted until coming out of full screen, frequently can’t access comments section even on topics I’m subbed to………….it’s just useless now. Please put it back the way it was before!!.Version: 2022.08.0

Reddit - cesspool of female hatred and rape fantasyReddit has taken the unusual step of deleting feminist subreddits, calling them "hate groups". Maybe women wouldn't have so much to talk about if this app wasn't full of rape fantasies and other assorted misogynistic content. Hard pass. Deleted..Version: 2020.24.0

New UI is terrible - playback has audio issuesHate the new UI that uses the Instagram reels / tik tok style for viewing media. It makes it so hard for reading comments; it constantly plays the videos while reading comments, pausing it while staying in the comments is this huge process. I liked the sound button better on the left hand side but I like that it has black behind because before the white sound button would disappear in videos with white background. Adding to my previous review and lowering my rating. The above has not been fixed, and lately if you open a video but don’t finish watching it, the audio will continue to play. Even if you are watching a new video, the audio from the previous post will continue to play. Even if you go into the post to pause it, it will then continue to play two instances of the same audio. You either have to wait for the video to finish or you have to restart the app. FIX THE PLAYBACK WITH THIS APP. There are so many third party apps I’m about to switch to a different one. This app used to be great and now it’s just getting so unusable.Version: 2021.47.0

Used to be greatHonestly just take this app around the back and end it’s misery. It’s crazy slow, the video player is a joke, it force closes every day, you got rid of the news tab, and on top of all that you somehow make it worse with every update. Pressing on the comments box shouldn’t full screen the video where I have to press the comments box again, and then swipe on a tiny little bar to minimise the now half screen video. So help you if you forget to mute the video before doing that too, as it’ll play on repeat while reading the comments. You care more about getting new accounts with a fresh, but not necessarily better, format. Well guess what happens when those teenyboppers grow up? Take a look at Facebook for an example. I would know, I was one of them. /rant Edit: and now they’ve replaced your subreddit list and added an ‘explore’ tab. If I wanted a tik tok clone I’d just download tik tok. You’re destroying the well-being of your user base..Version: 2021.33.0

Fonts too small, even on an iPad.Not accessible. This app annoys me because the tiny fonts do not rescale with the system font size. The text is pretty tiny when reading through the threads, needlessly so. Also, the view is the same width when I rotate to landscape view, all that screen with large grey strips on the left and right sides. Why? Uses absurd amounts of battery..Version: 2020.21.1

People on this app are mean!You can’t discuss a topic without getting hateful or condescending comments ! If someone is wrong, just teach facts instead of telling them they are idiots. I thought it would be a great place to learn from each other but it turns out to be full of high school-like bullies, even on innocent topics such as birds or plants🙄.Version: 2020.16.0

The Real ProblemSo I’ve been on Reddit for around a week and I really loved it! The community was great and there was a lot to do there until recently. One day I went on and seemed to not be able to comment or post anything. I then found out a thing called being Shadowbanned which is what reddit dose to people if they break there rules. I find this reasonable as there needs to be a moderated platform for people. I looked more into it and went to the subreddit r/shadowban to see if I was shadowbanned and turns out I was. I then took the past 30 mins to got though the comments and posts I ever made and didn’t see anything. Of course if I got shadowbanned I have to happen to break the rules somehow, so I went to the mods them self’s to not be unshadowbanned but more of what I did wrong. Unfortunately to the dismay of me they never replied so I sent them any message asking kindly what I have done. The same thing happened and to this day I still don’t know why I got shadowbanned. Though all of this I’ve made 3 accounts and all shaowbanned trying to to break the rules, one of those accounts I literally made only 3 comments. I never written a Apple review before but this app has gotten me so upset I had to write a review. Reddit needs to implement something for people and get there acted together if they ever want me back again, I’m really disappointed with everything they did..Version: 2021.45.0

Not user friendlyFirst time user. I’ve had an account for 20 minutes. I made an account thinking I could quickly get a question answered about a video I have. Very disappointed. I can’t post my video in the big communities. The small communities allow me to post my video but they are dead. I found a large community in which I could post the link to the video I posted in the smaller community, but moderators removed my post because supposedly it is a question and does not belong there. Mods suggested another community for me to post my question, but this community does not allow me to post links or videos... absolute waste of time..Version: 2021.24.1

Terrible video playerRecently Reddit updated the app with a new video player and the experience so far has been terrible. Tapping on a video now plays in full screen and swipping on the video either takes you back to the subreddit list OR picks another video from a random subreddit. Swipping away the video should at the very least take you to the comments posted about the video. Instead, you have to tap the video, then tap the comments icon on the right side. When you do this the video will keep looping with sound while you read. To stop it you have to go back into the full screen video and then either pause the video or mute the audio. If you accidentally swipe then you'll lose where you were in the comments. This interface as it currently works should never have gone into production..Version: 2021.25.0

Awful video playerI’ve never seen such an annoying video player in my life. Your app actually makes me so angry and I can’t believe you think that what you’ve done is okay? Can’t wait till it’s fixed. I have set it to never autoplay videos and when I return to the app guess what it does every time..Version: 2021.24.1

Good app, but..The application itself is great. But not so much about the rules. If you join a subreddit, you can be banned by the moderator for pretty much everything they don’t like. I asked a question, where I used a wrong word and got banned permanently (English is my second language, so it was just a honest mistake). Never insulted anyone. I don’t even feel like participating on Reddit anymore, as this was very insulting and without me directly offending or mistreating anyone. Stick with other social media if you don’t want to be ridiculed for a honest mistake. Something like this has not happened to me anywhere else and I am still quite surprised that you can get banned even without offending, or even meaning to offend anyone..Version: 2021.41.1

Video QualityThe website has video quality selection, but not the apps. Please add it🙏🏼. It’s a pity when on dense ppi phones & iPad size screens and it’s only streaming clips in 480p or worse. Either a selector on each vid like the web version, or a setting where you can set video default to maximum quality.🙏🏼👌🏼 Also why dont nsfw posts have audio? I’ve looked and can’t find a nsfw sound-on setting anywhere? (If I am missing it, can you please make more clear/accessible 🙏🏼).Version: 2021.44.0

BrainwashedAlmost every user is brainwashed in one way or another. Looking through reddit is just seeing a multitude of hive minds..Version: 2020.17.0

Absolutely terribleCompletely ruined UI. The video player is annoying and borderline broken. Constantly muting and unmuting. If you go to the comments, it will force the video to play again as well, minimising both the comments and the video on the screen. To top it off when this happens, the video mutes anyway! The entire player looks like hot ripped garbage straight from other apps, executed poorly. The feedback subreddits are completely ignored and it seems like action isn’t going to be taken. As of this update, it seems like apollo or some other alternative is necessary to maintain a basic level of user friendliness.Version: 2021.26.0

Mods have too much powerThe 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..Version: 2021.30.0

Less suggested posts pleaseI’ve used Reddit on and off for a while, following three subs specifically related to a niche interest of mine. Using this app, I used to be able to browse the best of all three from the Home tab, but recently it’s been filled with posts from subs I don’t follow as “suggestions”, such as things others have interacted with or posts deemed popular on Reddit. These posts are becoming more and more frequent. Isn’t that what the Popular tab is for? If I wanted to browse Reddit like a Facebook feed I’d either subscribe to more subs, or I’d use the Popular tab. Unfortunately, it’s driving me away, and I’m using the platform less and less - especially since using the browser version of Reddit on my phone is an even worse experience and effectively forces you to use the app. As a side note, people need to realise this is a place to review the app functionality and experience, not the platform itself or to air grievances about the site moderation, or similar. Please, App Store, moderate these reviews more effectively so that genuine feedback about the app experience doesn’t get lost in the chaos and goes unseen by the development team..Version: 2021.34.1

YikesI don’t download an official app to get spammed with recommended posts and unwanted livestreams and requests for my location to be turned on. Don’t even get me started on the basically non-functioning video player. Use some of that sponsored post money to fix your app :).Version: 2021.13.0

What is wrong with this latest update?I’m having problems with this update, when there is a response to my comment I can’t see it. Many posts show multiple comments next to the little comment symbol, but when I view the post the comments are not there or many are missing.Version: 4.45.0

I’m getting awfully sick of some chump regularly changing the interface…Note to Reddit staff… you don’t need to constantly update the interface and move stuff around just to make it a different version. Once again, that stupid horizontal scrolling list of subs I’m a part of is back after a 4-6 week stint of us having the alphabetical vertical list. Seriously, what the actual phark‽ What is the point of constantly forcing the switch between the two designs? Why not come up with some actual innovative features rather than doing the rubbish changes that we are constantly subjected to? Oh, and quit it with selling adverts to the gambling companies here in Australia. It is disgusting and you shouldn’t be a part of the normalisation of people wasting their incomes on betting. Do better..Version: 2021.41.1

I used to enjoy reddit.The app never seems to allow you to upload any images or make any posts, even though you’re abiding by the moderator rules. No clear instruction is given as to why your post fails and there doesn’t seem to be much help in that regard. I’d happily use the app in the future should the issue be remediated, but definitely not until then..Version: 4.30.0

Absolute garbageLooooong time reddit user, 8+ years and this app is beyond garbage. Videos that I’m not looking at play constantly even after moving past them, videos auto-play once you click comments even after pausing it, constantly crashes. The same content is constantly shown, days after it was first shown in my feed. All of these issues are new since the last major overhaul, I assumed it was just a case of bugs that would be worked out so I gave the developers the benefit of the doubt for what seems like well over a year. The absolute unusable-ness of this app has pushed me to delete my account and not look back. Do not download this, and don’t get hooked on the addictive algorithm it just isn’t worth it. Also the constant notifications are incessant and obnoxious, worse than facebook. I would give it zero stars if I could but I want to make sure this doesn’t get lost in all of the dumb one star reviews. I was a huge reddit fan, and they’ve honestly just ruined everything that made it good. Now with Reddit going public soon theres no way it wont get worse..Version: 2021.47.0

CRASH PROBLEMThe app doesnt work ! crashes every 30seconds to a minute. my favourite app but man fix the crashing bug.Version: 3.7.0

Video player and explore tab are awfulThe past few reddit updates are literally so horrible that i came here to write a review and i never write reviews. the video player is god awful on mobile, why when i click the comments to go to the post, it completely minimizes the video. then if i want to make the video bigger i click the video but if i swipe down it brings me to some random next video? no i want to leave!! why would i want to go to another random video?? what is the random video even from???? and now the newest update replaces the second tab on the left where i used to go to to find all my subreddits im subscribed to, my recent subs i visited and etc. and now it just has some useless explore feature showing random pictures and posts that im not even subscribed to. and theres ONE thin small bar at the top for me to horizontally scroll through all of my favorited subreddits. theres an option to click to view all which brings me back to the original screen but WHY IS THE EXPLORE PAGE THE DEFAULT. i joined reddit because it wasnt like typical social media, and now it is. horrible.Version: 2021.34.0

My favourite social media siteFar and away my favourite social media site. I love it. Anything you can imagine, there's a community for it. Generally well maintained communities too (I.e active, post often, good senses of humour, engaged). I don't have any of my physical friends on it so I do find it's different to FB, Twitter or others. But it's great in its own unique way. Extensive sources of knowledge in just about anything. If there isn't, start one. It's like Google but with active similarly interested people to converse with. Future is in doubt. Much like Wikipedia, it's a great site but to remain ad free and have a future, I do worry that it can sustain itself. App is intuitive enough. Easy to use haven't encountered anything irritating or limiting about it yet. Get it downloaded. More information and possible sources of knowledge than any other social media site on the planet. No limits to what you can explore and read about. Great source of learning. EDIT: Since the update/change to the app, the font being the noticeable change, the app crashes every few seconds. I love this site but I hate this new app for denying me access to it on the go. Get it sorted already. Think it's almost been a week and still no sign of an update to remedy this app breaking problem..Version: 3.7.0

An EXTREMELY abusive platformEverybody on here is extremely abusive, rude, and toxic..Version: 4.35.1

I love Reddit but this app man…I don’t understand why I can’t do broad searches within the Reddit app but rather have to search it in safari. Although frustrating, I have gotten used to having to google search my questions/communities BUT what really begins to frustrate me is that when I search in safari, 99% of the time I have to open it in app to view the posts which is always such a process. I have to click “take me to app” and it always takes me to the App Store- it never actually opens in app. Then, what’s even more annoying is there are so many updates that before I can even enter the app I have to wait for the app to update for the millionth time. And mind you, I search for answers on Reddit more than I probably should so I have to do this process of updating the app and then click at least 5 times to take me to the app before it even opens in the app!! Like it doesn’t register the first few times and just takes me to the App Store where I press “open” only to be brought to the main Reddit feed and not what I searched for. So while I am unable to read it on safari I am also unable to read it in the app. Super frustrating! I love Reddit I just feel like this shouldn’t be an issue so I’m hoping someone sees this to make the app more user friendly!.Version: 2022.13.0

New updates are BADGuys, the video player UX is absolute garbage. How did this get past UAT? Impossible to navigate the scrubber in portrait on iPhone. Videos stop and start when you don’t want them to. Pause the video then exit, it starts again. I also now need to jump through hoops to browse by /r/all, all because you want me to mindlessly scroll through content. This is shameless profiteering, sort yourselves out and nip this soulless development strategy in the bud before it kills Reddit. This was clearly developed with ONLY performance metrics in mind but that is not the full picture when it comes to the long term success of reddit. The updates to this app were created without any respect for the users or the traditions of the platform and I will be moving to a 3rd party app until you sort yourselves out..Version: 2021.28.0

Avoid at all costsEvery single sub is it’s own echo chamber. Differing opinions are not allowed on this app. Will never come back..Version: 2021.34.0

Video playerThis app was really good for a long long time, but I’m not sure why the choice was made to change the video player? The new one doesn’t stay in the subreddit I’m in, and rarely even plays the videos I tap on. I understand making something similar to compete with other social media apps (via the scrolling down like Instagram or TikTok instead of scrolling to the side), but I don’t want to use those other apps, that’s why I used Reddit. As far as I am aware, there weren’t any problems with the old video player and it always worked perfectly when I used it, so why change it if it works well? Everything else in the app is great and flows well, but I’m really considering uninstalling because of this issue because I’ve lost one of the features of Reddit that drew me to the Reddit app. If I didn’t already like the app I’d rate it 1 star. If the video player stays the way it is, I’ll probably uninstall and use something I like less than Reddit, which makes me sad..Version: 2021.27.0

Stupid gif playingCurrently 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..Version: 2021.23.0

Filter option in search bar presents issuesUnfortunately the filter option doesn’t always appear in the search bar while browsing subreddits, making it impossible to organise. When it does appear, the “hitbox” for it is so small that the app usually thinks I want to look up something else through the search bar rather than filter my current search. Not only that, but the Home page hasn’t been running smoothly lately. I’m often getting “Can’t reach Reddit” messages even though I can still look through different subs..Version: 4.7.1

Not Working, Design Changes Hurt User ExperienceThis app was working just fine until the recent updates where Reddit has (1) swapped the video player with a TikTok wannabe video players and forced videos to sticky to the top of posts and (2) replaced the bottom communities tab that conveniently listed recent communities, favorited communities, and all other joined communities with an Pinterest-like browse tab which includes none of my communities. Now to get my communities list I have to tap a More button in the left - which is difficult to reach on an iPhone 12 Max - to open a side pane that wasn’t loading until I opened and closed the app a bunch of times (suggested by an admin on r/Redditmobile). What’s even worse is that if I want to jump to another one of my communities I **cannot**. I’m forced to tap the arrow in the top of the screen to exit the community, then I have to tap the More button to open the pane AGAIN, and then I can scroll to my desired community. The extra tap is annoying and frustrating. I wish these forced changes were optional so I could sidestep these weird choices whatever leaders at Reddit are forcing because they want to increase engagement in more boring normie communities that may have more ads..Version: 2022.04.0

Devs are destroying the app and experienceDevs do not listen to any feedback and instead keep pushing updates that harm the usability and intuitiveness of the app, for example the new video player, an attempt to copy tiktok and be trendy while harming the user experience. It requires more taps to do the same things, ruins the comment section and cannot be paused without going full screen. They tried it once and were met by thunderous disappointment, rolled it back and now a few months later they’ve forced it on most accounts on iOS. Additionally they’re pushing you to subscribe to more and more subreddits you don’t want to, “oh you upvoted a post, surely you want a pop up asking you to subscribe to that subreddit”. Plus their incessant requests to allow location services to see what people near me are upvoting, no I don’t want to. But no, the site/app designed around tailoring your experience and content has a “show me LESS of this” option. How about show me none of this, get it off my home screen and never show me it again? Bear in mind that even if you did like the new changes they’re wasting time fixing things that weren’t broken while ignoring things that are broken like soundless gifs and videos interfering with music playback.Version: 2021.22.0

4.0.2 No good 😕I’ve been using the various versions of Reddit for a while now and I have to say the latest update has me scratching my head a bit. Suddenly my home feed is littered with popular posts from subreddits that I’m not subscribed to. Forgive me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that the point of the “Popular” feed? On top of that, any time I view a picture or gif now it automatically orients into landscape. Quite annoying on mobile. I’ve only been using the app a short while since I’ve updated, so there may be a new setting or something I need to change, but either way this feels like a confusing and unnecessary change..Version: 4.0.2

Awful updatesI use Reddit on my iPad. Here is the new things I don’t like: - Changing the location of my subscribed subreddits. I do not like to go to awkward side menu. Return the quick access button at the bottom! (Make the new discovery feature another tab or a link from the subreddits view) - Landscape mode does show comments for videos on iPad. - Forced usage of the Reddit app. Sometimes, I like to browse using Safari. The website at some point doesn’t display all the comments, and then displays to install the Reddit app to continue. Hilariously, the open in Reddit button most times doesn’t work for me and I have Reddit installed..Version: 2022.07.0

Censorship of dissenting opinionsI refuse to frequent and support a site that doesn’t support me. A complete echo chamber that glorifies hate, deceit and lies. Come to Gab or a truly free service instead, which respects people's right to hold opinions and speak freely. Support that which supports you..Version: 2021.31.0

Needs ImprovementReddit is a good app but small things could be a whole lot better. 1 thing that always irritates me is when i search reddit on my browser, and the post wants to take me to the app, it takes me to the app store when i already have reddit downloaded. Then just when u think it cant get any worse when I press open after it redirects me to app store, it doesn't even take me to the post. I understand some may say just use reddits app in the first place and you wont have that issue, but there should be ease of access. If it doesnt redirect me to reddit app with the same post on browser, might aswell take reddit off of google/search engines and put a big slogan ‘APP/WEBSITE’ only lol. This is such a simple thing it shouldnt be a problem, and thats why this review is 3 stars and not 5..Version: 2021.35.0

From great to ok to disappointingI’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..Version: 2020.44.0

RIP alien blueI’ve been a long time Reddit mobile user, dating back to the alien blue days. Ever since Reddit bought/replaced it with this app, they have managed to ruin the user experience more with each update. The Current versions “improvements” include: 1) 1/5 posts are sponsored ads mixed in as “posts” 2) “suggested” communities/posts mixed into your regular feed 3) the single worst video player ever created 4)blatant (and poorly implemented) attempts to copy ticktoks UI I hope they re-find their way, but I’m not holding my breath. Until then, I recommend Apollo over this garbage app..Version: 2021.44.1

Repetive adsIf you’re interested in your favourite subreddits, and don’t need the full laptop desktop experience this all you need. If you want an ad to feckoff, then you won’t find the hide, or block options of any use (and boy have I tried). The ad for GOT-conquest will be there every 20 or so posts (there are some GOT agnostics out there). It’s almost like they only have a tiny pool of advertisers and keep them on rotation for weeks before moving to another by a slightly different handle.Version: 2020.17.0

TerribleReddit sucks and is nothing but a far left echo chamber. They have recently deleted 2000 communities for wrongthink. This is unbelievable censorship of free speech that is occurring.Version: 2020.23.0

From bad to worseThis app was never good to begin with, it had constant issues connecting to the server, doesn’t let you use many of the features or settings on the desktop version, constantly subscribing me to subreddits when I just want to go into the subreddit to see what it’s about, ghost notifications, and other things. Recently that made a change to the home tab were you would see subreddits you have subscribed to and only subreddits you have subscribed to, but not anymore. Our elite overlords at Reddit hq have decided that you don’t know what you want to see and that they can do better. So instead of just seeing the 20 or so small subreddits that I have subscribed to too keep up with when a franchise I like is getting something new and the memes involving those franchises, I’m now seeing cesspools r/politics, r/politicalhumor, r/subredditdrama, and others that I’ve wanted to block for ages, but can’t because Reddit doesn’t let you, showing up in the home tab. I don’t want to see this garbage Reddit just because it’s “popular on Reddit” doesn’t mean that everyone wants to see it..Version: 2021.24.1

Ap should not be requiredHad to download the app to read reddit on my phone. Not a huge fan of the amount of reddit censorship either. Only good for getting info then getting out..Version: 2020.17.0

MODS have too much power and ban you for no reason.Please all I want is my account restored! This is a message to the mods. Why? I have bipolar disorder. I apologize about my outburst the other day, I thought I was talking to a robot. Please can you guys restore my account. I’m not doing anything wrong. This is really affecting my mental health. My dog just died last week and my grandpa is in the hospital with COVID. I need Reddit as an outlet. Please I am begging you. I get the community engaged with my posts. Please, please, please as one human speaking to another human during a pandemic with the world in chaos mode can you please have some sympathy/empathy. I sincerely apologize to the MOD(s) I may have exchanged words with. I honestly just thought it was a robot. Please I ask you to restore my account. I have learned my lesson. I have just been getting frustrated that my posts keep getting removed with no explanation. I apologize for my actions. Can you guys please forgive me? Can we end this on good terms? I am a beginner streamer, I lost my Job during the pandemic a few months ago. This is all I want to do is contribute to this Reddit and continue to help it grow..Version: 2021.36.0

Service ReviewWhile most reviews here are about the app itself (which makes plenty of sense), this one is for those of you wanting to dive in to the world of Reddit. Ever since downloading and starting up an account on Reddit, I have essentially culled all other forms of social media since nothing feels as entertaining and as relevant to me. Reddit is filled with communities of like minded people who share things relevant only to the community itself - follow as many as you like and have a homepage filled with things that interest YOU. Comments and posts are rated by the community, the highest rated being featured up top and the lowest rated down the bottom. This means most of what you read are of high quality - either intelligent, witty, funny or generally interesting comments and posts. Get it. Download it and make an account. Be your best, witty self and share relevant things with people who share common interests with you..Version: 4.5.0

Video playerThis new video player is very annoying - if you click the video to pause it opens in full screen without you clicking a full screen butto, when you click the comments - it’s not a full comment section it’s all condensed. It’s to the point where I don’t watch videos on reddit anymore - I use it just for text posts now..Version: 2021.23.0

App PMs don’t listen to usersI’ve been using Reddit for over 10 years, starting with the Alien Blue app on iOS when Reddit didn’t have its own native app. It was then bought by Reddit and everyone was eventually migrated over to an official Reddit Mobile app about 3-ish years ago. Since then, everything I loved about Alien Blue has been stripped away until finally, in early 2021, the experience became downright awful. The video player is beyond bad, they keep pushing recommendations down your throat, and they continue to pester you to subscribe to things just because you looked at it once. I WANT to use the official app; I tried an alternative (Apollo) several times over the last two years but always went back to Reddit Mobile because it felt better. I can’t say that anymore; the Reddit PM who owns the mobile app straight up ignores constant constructive feedback about the negative changes being made and the UX continues to worsen. I’ve officially moved to Apollo not for the love of its features but because Reddit Mobile has gotten so much worse to the point of misery and infuriation when trying to use it..Version: 2021.26.0

Reddit is great but the app isn'tThe recent changes to the way you view comments are just annoying, just takes so much work to get to and scroll through comments when it used to be so easy.Version: 2021.23.0

Video playerThis video player is terrible, why is there no option to revert to the previous style..Version: 2021.23.0

Anti-woman websiteReddit hosts disgusting pornography of actual women getting raped and subreddits glorifying the rape snd murder of girls and women. Subs that have complained about this have been banned. Women-centered communities are banned left and right for dome sick reason too. Stay away from this app/site if you're a woman..Version: 2020.24.0

Toxic Forum & Dishonest AdminsReddit is the most toxic social forum I have ever seen. The posting and voting system is fraudulent. Moderators and administrators are breaking TOS themselves by encouraging sexism & racism, sending personal threats and shadow banning innocent users. The app’s rating is also manipulated by deleting the negative reviews. A lot of the five star reviews obviously sound fake. No one would truly believe those words come from real Reddit users..Version: 2020.17.0

Recent negatives.Normally a brilliant app that is incredibly convenient and good for keeping up with communities I’m a part of. recently Reddit has been trying to push popular posts, and similar pages to my own onto my home page. If I wanted to see these posts I would be in those communities, or on the popular page. Revert this change..Version: 2021.23.0

Reddit Sileneces Women and Uplifts Abusive MalesA recent wave of subreddit bans has targeted women’s subreddits that sought to counter act damaging parts of the patriarchy such as pornography and calling out subreddits that are 100% based around hating females. Though many feminist subreddits have faced the chop, many pornography subreddits that have rape and violence against women remain. Reddit’s priorities are transparent and blatantly sexist..Version: 2020.24.0

Get rid of the pop upsWill be uninstalling shortly… I’ve used this app for a number of years now and never have I encountered something so annoying an unwarranted in an app. To constantly get served 1 of 3 different pop ups throughout the day asking if I enjoyed that post, would I like to see more from blah, am I enjoying reddit.. why?.Version: 2021.25.0

What a mess… video player again!You can’t open comments section on iPad for video content… they can’t manage videos and iOS… when its not the safe area that blocked the gesture… its all the screen that are used on iPad and you can only dismiss the video… you can’t open comments for the video..Version: 2022.05.0

UghSuper trash. Way too political and toxic. Stay out of this echo chamber..Version: 2020.24.0

Stop fixing what isn’t broken!The newest update makes it difficult to look at your subscribed subreddits in the hidden side bar. The “Pinterest style” explore page is so unnecessary and the middle ‘posting’ button is unnecessary. If someone wants to post, it’s pretty easy to figure out. These additions aren’t making Reddit more ‘user friendly’, it makes the app more annoying to use..Version: 2022.07.0

Video half screen failI watch a video, then I head to the comments and scroll through them. But with this new format, I click on comments and the video goes to half screen and starts again. Why? Who in their right mind wants to watch a video and scroll through comments at the same time. I find myself pausing the video several times trying to get it to shut up before getting to the full screen comments section. Please reinstate old format. Were there even any complaints?.Version: 2021.25.0

Poor iPad optimisation, misleading ads.This app is great on iPhone. However, when I installed this on my iPad, all of the content is stranded in the middle leaving an cumulative half of the screen unused with all of the content in the centre of the screen. On larger iPads, this makes it difficult to scroll. Other apps have a side bar on the left with a main window view on the right to utilise 100% of my large screen. I would use those apps, but this is the only app that works with native link support meaning I can’t use an app that gives a great unified experience. Meaning my reddit engagement suffers from being forced to use this app. The second problem with this app is that the ads are disguised to look like posts in your feed. I think this is against EU regulations, but I could be wrong. The ads need to be made more clear and visible perhaps changing the background colour of the ad post. I’m not against ads, I just feel like I’m being tricked into viewing something that when I realise it’s an ad, it again leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. Ads are a necessity on many platforms, but be upfront about them your users are intelligent, treat them with dignity with this..Version: 4.38.1

Can’t read comments on video postsUnable to read comments on any post with a video. With the iPad in the normal (landscape) mode you can’t read comments. When you hold it awkwardly in portrait mode, you can see comments but they disappear off the right hand side of the screen. Has been this way for a year or so and they haven’t fixed it..Version: 2021.47.0

Great App, one kinda big problem thoughSo overall I love Reddit, I don’t mind the apps layout and I don’t mind the devs trying to change the platform design every now and then to test waters. How else do you try to stay relevant and gain new audiences? However, I do have a small problem that kinda becomes a big problem. For some reason the app will not function on my 4G, wifi it seems to be fine (most of the time I recently had it do the same as it does for my 4G not sure why) but not my data. It simply says that it can’t load anything and it does this every time without fail. However for some reason if I use a vpn with my 4G it does work I’m not sure why but it does. And I know it’s not a regional thing cause like I said the wifi connection works so I’m not sure what the problem is, it’s be very nice if this was fixed as everything else it perfectly fine..Version: 2022.04.0

WellApp incites violence and hatred against women, and bans any womens discussions subs, from men-free feminist discussions to subs against domestic violence or subs supporting single moms..Version: 2020.24.0

Seems outdated.The app is very entertaining and extremely useful. There are plenty communities to be part of and it’s generally a good time. However, the app is horrendously slow at loading videos and comments. Sometimes when someone replies to your comment, for example, and you click on the notification which informs you of this, you get an error and you can’t view the reply even though you just got a notification. It is so bad you can even go you their profile and see their reply to you, but when you click on their reply you get an error. The reply is right there! Along with the awfully slow loading of comments and videos, there are regular down periods which are not a result of improvements being made to the app, but just an unstable service. It makes it feel outdated..Version: 2022.04.0

Not an original thought.Reddit Inc once again showing their employees don’t have any idea what reddit is, that they don’t employ any UX engineers / designers and instead just try to clone the latest craze app into their own. This months update brings us the TikTok interface to navigating posts that have videos. Who needed to see comments anyway? Now all videos loop and the entire post is just a single button to open the video in full screen. If you try to swipe it away it just shows a different video instead. No more reading or engaging on reddit. Just blindly consume never ending videos instead because that’s apparently popular now..Version: 2021.22.0

Echochamber with poor featuresOther than the site itself being an echochamber that encourages wrong-think to be punished with prolonged reply windows and sending downvoted comments to the bottom and hiding them, the app itself has bugs that are annoying as hell. For one there are ‘features’ you can’t turn off or edit in the mobile version; you can’t turn off getting notifications of new comments on posts you commented on yourself, you can’t unblock or see who you’ve blocked, and moderation is essentially impossible on mobile. Also the app decides to close itself randomly when you minimise it, even if it’s minimised for only a second. This can mean losing a comment you were writing, a post you were making, or where you were on your feed..Version: 2020.15.0

Subreddit searching seems to be brokenIf you're searching for a subreddit that you know exists, for whatever reason the search function won't find it but will show other results which have similar names..Version: 3.7.0

CensorshipReddit deletes subreddits focused on feminism and women’s rights, but allows subreddits about rape fantasies? No thanks.Version: 2020.24.0

Broadly okay, but not a great experienceApp reviewed on iPad. As a long time classic layout desktop user, the app, while perfectly functional, falls really short as a user experience. I don’t believe these are critical flaws with the app, but could be corrected and all would be well. It’s mostly an issue with layout and readability. The app makes zero use of the iPad screen. In portrait mode, opening a subreddit usually displays two (!) items in a space the could comfortably fit ten, one of which will invariably be an insultingly massive ad, with video auto play and very poor delineation between ads and actual posts. The general experience is just that, scroll, scroll, ad, ad, the real content gets lost to the eye.p and there’s no way to fix it. I understand much of this is subjective, but that’s the impression it leaves me with. Frustration, lack of options and poor layout. Oh, and notifications keeps ‘alerting’ me to random trending things I don’t want no matter how often I tell it I don’t want that. Is it a bug?.Version: 2020.32.0

Update sucks! Video player is awful!!Latest update changed video player and it is horrendous! Revert it back please.Version: 2021.27.0

New "buy coins" logo is gross.The app as a whole is okay. Buggy with weird design choices but it was the first reddit app I used so I'm too used to it to change. However, as the company continues to come up with ways to monetise it gets worse and worse. First it was ads that you had to pay a subscribtion to remove. Then it was adding a million different ways to reward users with useless icons that cost actual money and in most cases offer nothing. The latest update added a big coin logo at the top of the front page next to the search bar just so you never forget that you can spend money to buy absolutely pointless "coins". Hilariously the icon is bigger than any of the reward icons actual posts get. And unlike regular reddit ads this icon begging you to spend money doesn't go away when you have gold. The glory days of Reddit are long behind us. That's reality. Every knew decision the company makes seems to be anti consumer however which leads me to believe that the platform won't plateau at mediocre, it will nose dive itself into becoming indistinguishable from any other social media platform..Version: 2020.8.1

Lots of worthwhile subs but the mods are ruthless.I enjoy reddit but it is fraught and filled with women wanting you to join their onlyfans, but there’s also wonderful, fulfilling and worthwhile subs like r/mademesmile . I just wish the mods on the various subs weren’t drunk with the power to silence other redditors. They love using the ban hammer! You won’t get a warning, you’ll be banned swiftly from any sub you might post in, and no amount of trying to work it out like adults will work. Most often your messages to explain your side will be ignored. If you are bothered by being downvoted for sharing your thoughts despite it not being in line with the majority of people, then yes, download this app. Perhaps Quora is more suitable, or even Imgur. Use at your own risk and if you have depression or anxiety, perhaps you should reconsider using this app..Version: 2021.17.1

Impossible to scrub through video in new app uiSeriously who was the one who designed it?? Putting the timeline right at the bottom makes me wonder if anyone tested on ios where this is the exact place used to switch and close apps. You dont have to be like tik tok, Reddit is great as Reddit. Please at least give the option revert ui designs that you implemented without warning afaik..Version: 2021.28.0

App is taking some shoddy turnsDo they test this any more? The video player opens under the iOS bottom bar, so trying to scrub video just swipes between running applications instead. Instead of viewing threads, you end up with screens full of video which make reading the discussions really difficult. It’s almost like the discussions are afterthoughts, rather than the basis of Reddit. The application becomes very slow to scroll after a few minutes use, which it never used to. This also results in your device overheating and draining the battery. As of late June 2021, this application has become a shadow of what it was. The number of places where the UI moves under your taps is ever-increasing, making the app unpredictable and unreliable. The new ‘avatars’ pushes the UI out as you access it, meaning when you go to tap one thing, you trigger something else entirely. The constant suggestions for new subreddits and posts does the same thing; you are forced to slow down and dismiss UI elements you didn’t ask for to access the things they interrupted. This is the first time I’ve considered third party clients to be a better option for Reddit. The QA and testing on this version just didn’t seem to happen. The application and business teams need to seriously rethink what they are doing here, as it seems to be quite damaging to their core business and user base. This is the worst review I’ve left in the 12 years I’ve been a registered user..Version: 2021.28.0

Reddit hates and censors womenReddit will allow rape subreddits but not subreddits for critical thinking related to women’s rights. Sadly, reddit is anti-free speech and pro-misogyny. Reddit bizarrely lumps critical leftist feminist thought in with extreme racism and fascism. Reddit moderators who delete critical thinking subreddits that discuss women’s rights compassionately and polite are disturbingly biased and admit to it. I am extremely disappointed with reddit. One day, this will all be realized as the shameful, pathetic nonsense it truly is. Until then, reddit is an utter disgrace..Version: 2020.24.0

Do not update.They keep trying to push a useless card view and are hiding things I use daily like my custom feeds. Please devs stop messing with a good thing - it wasn’t broken. Stop “fixing” it..Version: 2022.01.0

Censoring People & Turning A Blind EyeReddit can be a nice platform for many people for many things such as cooking, music, discussions about video games, etc. My biggest issue regarding this platform is the lack of accountability people face. For example, when there is a problem with a moderator being rude or abusing their power to ban people, the Reddit Administration turns a blind eye. They don’t listen and claim they are “sorry” but they truly aren’t. They don’t care. There are rules for moderators and for subreddits so that no one crosses the line; however, it has become hypocritical they list these rules yet they never enforce them. I have reached out to the administration to make them aware of this fact. They say there is nothing they can do to help. Reddit, like many social media platforms that exist today, can offer wonderful experiences. The issue arises when these platforms don’t take responsibility for censoring people that never deserved it, and looking away when there are people who are actually breaking rules and spreading hateful comments. It is the one of the most toxic experiences anyone could have. Especially, when you know your voice doesn’t actually mean anything because at the end of the day, it won’t matter to them because you are just one person. This is very concerning and wrong. Reddit needs to be put into check or else they will continue this negligent behavior..Version: 2021.36.0

Gets worse with every updateEvery update somehow manages to make it a less usable experience than ever before, and we’re really hitting some lows now. The new video player is just awful and has no consistency with any of the other UI design and is far less user friendly than the old one which wasn’t perfect but serviced functionally at least. Nowadays Every fifth post on my home page is not even from a subreddit I follow and it gets annoying. It can get slow and bogged down and there are bugs all over the place. The UI is generally inconsistent and becomes frustrating trying to navigate it when a swipe left means about eleven million different things depending on where you are or which exact pixel you touch or the phase of the moon two weeks from now. All in all, avoid. Get a different Reddit app if you must, I will be switching to Apollo..Version: 2021.24.1

Each Update Gets WorseI’m begging for you to stop updating this app. Every time it gets worse and the features I like are harder to access. I used and liked custom feeds, and now they’re hidden in the least accessible location imaginable, after I’ve scrolled past every single subreddit I’m subscribed to. I had to turn off home feed recommendations (which was harder to do than it should have been) because it suggested a disturbing image totally unrelated to my likes. This app’s user interface just keep reaching newer and more incredible levels of terrible, inaccessible and complicated so it can push videos, adverts and now cryptocurrency, with an algorithm that still seems wholly incapable of learning anything about my likes or interests. What a farce..Version: 2022.08.0

Ruining the Reddit experienceReddit is an excellent social media to connect with niche communities and explore interests with those who share them. There is also the front page which amalgamates the most popular communities, which serves a completely different purpose. Until a recent update these two were separate but now my home page, which used to be communities I followed has been inundated with popular communities that I'm not interested in and that makes my home page no different from the popular page. As an aside the video player in the app is awful, with audio playing after a video has closed among other issues..Version: 2021.45.0

New update ruined uiThis app has slowly been going downhill with each update that the development team have put out, but this really takes the cake. first of all, what is up with the new tiktok layout being implemented onto videos? it’s an absolute pain and i don’t think it even functions properly. not to mention the fact that it’s an eyesore. everyone collectively cannot stand it, me included. i’m now avoiding videos because of this awful design choice. seriously, who came up with this and thought it was a good idea? and why on earth are you guys flooding my home page with subreddits that have absolutely nothing to do with me? i use reddit to browse through things that i find interesting. if i’m now seeing a bunch of subs that i’m not interested in in my home feed, i’m just not going to use the app. if i’m not using it i’m going to delete it. the option to opt out of this in settings is completely useless because i’m still seeing these random subs when i scroll through my home feed. besides, if i wanted to look at popular posts then i’d just switch over to the popular tab. you clearly weren’t thinking at all when you implemented this feature. use your brains..Version: 2021.25.0

Innumerable issuesQuite apart from Reddit being a breeding ground for hate and censorship, the mobile app has extremely frustrating problems. Most videos don’t play without sound when they clearly should have sound, and it is not at all apparent that to hear it you need to click on the tiny link to watch the video on a separate website. Even worse is the app-breaking bug that keeps coming back: the whole app fails to load and simply says “Sorry, please try again later”. There is no explanation or guidance on how to fix this recurring problem, and the only way to fix it used to be to disable “personalised ads based on your Reddit activity”, the option to do which is now gone from the app entirely. So in short if you get this bug (about once every two weeks) there is no way to use Reddit - even on the computer - until it magically decides to sort itself out..Version: 2021.11.0

Now requires account to followI’m not really into social media due to the lack of privacy and mundane content. Reddit is the most I do. I really liked that I could follow more positive, uplifting feeds and as a result didn’t have to stroll thru everything. Since it was updated (the previous one, not the one 5 days ago), now it asks you to create an account to follow specific feeds. I don’t know if you can still view only your chose feeds cuz I don’t care to create an account when I didn’t have to before. Looking at Reddit in its entirety influences me negatively, hence the reason I only followed Calvin & Hobbes, Earth Porn, Humans Being Bros, and Animals Being Bros. Before the update, Reddit started with my feed and I had the option to view Popular. Now all you have is Popular and News. I gave the new update a try for over two months but now I find myself feeling anxious or angry after strolling Reddit, just as I used to do before I began following more positive feeds only. Creating an account may be a simple matter for many but it’s not for me. To me it’s another way for tech to have some of your private information when it’s not necessary. I don’t do comments or votes so why should I have to sign in? So after giving the new Reddit a try, I’ve decided it’s best for me to delete it..Version: 2022.12.0

Bugs bugs bugsWith every update it gets buggier. I used to love this app, now as I’m scrolling, half of a previous post I was looking at will pop up on top of another post. The new comment format doesn’t work half the time (don’t know why it needed to be changed), entire comment threads will disappear or I won’t be able to scroll down without it springing back to the top comment. Sometimes I can’t even click the button to see the comments. I’m not on an old phone, my iOS is up to date - I don’t understand why it’s getting worse, shouldn’t it be getting better?.Version: 3.12.0

Horrible operationSo I have the app. When I just want to search a question on the browser from my phone and click into reddit to see the response, reddit refuses to let me read in the browser and forces me to transfer to the app. Not only so, the response I’m reading is lost when I am transferred to the app and I’m just at the main page. Are you telling me that when reddit have a answer to my question, I must go to reddit and search my questions again, then just to find that response I’m reading before knowing if it actually answers my question?.Version: 2022.05.0

New video playback sucksIt's buggy, you can't pause the video without fully opening it. It's a bad update. Downloading Apollo now.Version: 2021.23.0

New update makes the app unbearable with the new video playerI’ve used the Reddit app for about 2 years, despite all its bugs and flaws because I understand that my traffic contributes to the income the devs get. I am now deleting this app to move to Apollo 3rd party, as it seems there’s absolutely zero consideration to the user base when this new video player was designed. It’s the most unintuitive design imaginable, that irritates me every time i click on a gif or video post. Revert the unnecessary change and I’ll gladly revise this review, until then i don’t see myself coming back to this app. I don’t dislike it because it mirrors that of Tik-Tok, i hate it because of the new viewing window when looking at comments, the inability to enjoy cross-posted video threads, the pointless feature of being able to view other videos beneath it, as well as the irrational swipe feature to view comments. Blows my mind his a company decided to take a perfectly good feature about their app and then just completely obliterate it for something no one likes, and then ignore the feedback, find access to Reddit somewhere else..Version: 2021.23.0

Great for communities, but bad communityAlright so I love reddit, it gives communities a great platform to post and socialise. but the actual reddit community is awful. It’s so hive-minded. If you get downvoted ONCE, say hello to -100 downvotes in the first hour. Even if you’re slightly controversial, or have a different opinion you’ll get downvoted. They hate emojis, for some reason, enjoy the ‘fortnite hate train’ and if you dare speak about Instagram, or any other platform, DOWNVOTED. The only reason I’m still on reddit at all is for the memes on it and communities related to games I like. So yeah, you’ll enjoy reddit, just: - don’t use emojis (unless it’s ironic) - don’t speak out your opinion which isn’t the most popular - hate fortnite, Instagram and any other social media.Version: 2020.33.0

A few bugsBlocking a user takes you back to the beginning of your feed for the day. Incredibly annoying when you’ve gone through a lot in a single day. Counter for notifications doubles so there’s a ridiculously higher number bubble despite in having half the actual notifications..Version: 2021.09.0

IPad app is just a blown up phone appThe developers haven’t really though through the iPad app. It’s not BAD, but it doesn’t really use the space effectively. Using the dropdown menu to access the subreddit info is pretty clunky, and using the search button to access your subreddit list is clunky as well. There is more than enough space to put the subreddit list on the side, especially in portrait mode. When you write comments, the comment field expands to fill the whole screen and you can’t see the original post you were replying too, which once again is completely ridiculous on a device that has more than enough space. Overall the design of the app is a bit uninspired and really feels like the minimum required effort was put into it. The devs seem to have no clue how to make a proper iPad app, and just expanded the size of their iPhone app..Version: 4.0.2

R/gachalifecringeOkay, I’m not sure if you can control this, but please do something! R/gachalifecringe is supposed to show the bad side of Gacha, like heat and fake d3pression,things like that. But they are starting to become more toxic. Comments on posts have started saying things like “Gacha kids should just all d!3 in a f!r3!!” “Gacha is so bad, whoever does it will go to h377!” They are crushing people’s dreams! Some posts are criticizing people on their drawing skills and a animating. They don’t know how long and how proud they might of been when they made it! And the people who break the rules on there don’t even get banned and frequently posts that break the rules are left up there! People have even started to attack Youtubers who simply REACT to the video!!!! PLEASE BAN THAT SUBREDDIT OR AT LEAST WARN THEM!! I don’t know and I’m sorry but it’s getting to the point where R/gachalifecringe could be another Gacha drama!!!.Version: 2021.30.0

Media is brokenThe video player is awful and you can't just hold on a video and save it, yet you can do that with a photo? Plus videos just sometimes won't even play, it just shows a black screen or freezes on the first frame. Sort your stuff out, Reddit..Version: 2021.43.0

Dark UX patternsReddit used to be great. It’s still really good, but the commercialization of it has pushed the need for growth and conversion. These metrics sound good to investors, so now we cannot see 18+ subreddits in a browser, you get forced to download the app (3rd party apps work normally, for now, I fully expect them to enforce a move to the official app soon though). At every turn you get lured into using the app. For the majority of redditors who just want to “read it” this is a dark pattern, as we don’t want to, but are being forced to download and use the app under the guise of a better experience. But we all know that companies can collect more data and metrics from apps, because most of us are savvy enough to use as blockers and DNS filters like NextDNS on our regular browsers. So Reddit itself gets four stars. This app gets 4 stars if you want it. The one star is for the overall experience of this app, as an unnecessary bloat to my phone, and overreach into my data forced by greedy investors, and the use of UX dark patterns. To the UX researchers and designers, come join us on Mixed Methods slack channel, because you need some education on how to push back to management—this won’t end well for Reddit imo..Version: 2022.05.0

Stop ruining RedditI don’t normally leave reviews but these recent app changes have been so unpleasant I’m considering leaving Reddit as a whole. I have no idea why your design team is so out to ruin the experience of the mobile app, it is not intuitive, not easy to use and overall unpleasant. Get it together.Version: 2022.07.0

Very well doneReddit is similarly formatted to other social media, with a couple of important changes. Firstly, and possibly the best part, is the custom feeds, which aren’t littered with rubbish posts of thousands of things you didn’t ask to see, or uncontrollable ads, instead it shows posts from subreddits you subscribed to. This allows each feed to be tailored to the individual. Next are the subreddits themselves. There are tons, and it’s easy to find one that interests you, which is fantastic. On reddit you can easily find like minded individuals for just about anything, and the subreddits are welcoming too. Thirdly, the format of reddit is one that allows interests to thrive, from memers to academics to lovers of the wholesome there is a plethora of thriving communities to chose from, without the worry of shame or hateful comments from the others. And lastly, something I’ve seen mentioned many times, the absence of care for followers or upvotes. If you wish to farm for upvotes and cultivate an account with hundreds of thousands of upvotes, it is entirely possible and quite fun, but on the other hand lurking and lacking followers or upvotes isn’t shamed whatsoever. Overall, a well made app which benefits from a community without overwhelming toxicity..Version: 4.47.0

Why should I report an issue with Reddit?

  1. Pulling issues faced by users like you is a good way to draw attention of Reddit to your problem using the strength of crowds.
  2. We have developed a system that will try to get in touch with a company once an issue is reported and with lots of issues reported, companies will definitely listen.
  3. Importantly, customers can learn from other customers in case the issue is a common problem that has been solved before.
  4. If you are a Reddit customer and are running into a problem, might not be the fastest and most effective way for you to solve the problem but at least you can warn others off using Reddit.

Is Reddit not working?

Reddit works most of the time. If it is not working for you, we recommend you excersise some patience and retry later or contact Reddit.
