Reddit for Negative User Reviews

App works perfectly. Run away as fast as you can.As a species, we’ve done some stupid things. Social media has to be up there as one of the dumbest ever. Everyone is entitled to their bafflingly stupid opinions, but allowing people to tell hundreds of thousands of other people without any serious repercussions had to be one of the greatest own goals humankind has inflicted upon itself. Avoid this app at all costs and get on with your life. Go do something meaningful. Life’s hard enough without subjecting yourself to the toxic garbage fire that is Reddit. App goes great!.Version: 2022.28.0

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

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

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

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

Anti-developer is anti-consumerThe move to price an absurd amount to their API is no more than just a cash grab. With the direct consequence of phasing out third party apps, apps that brought the reddit name to where it is. A move to gate-keep and stifle innovation will be the burning bridge that Reddit won’t be able to get back. Please listen to the developers and be fair!.Version: 2023.21.0

Oh reddit, you messed upIf you don’t know about it already, google the API changes then delete the app. Greedy company removed all of the (better) third party sites and has made moderation worse by an order of magnitude..Version: 2023.24.0

Stop deleting one-star reviewsAs others have reviewed, it has a serious moderation issue. It’s gotten much worse because Reddit now smashed admins (Reddit employees) onto larger communities. While this may bring some good tech support, they also appear to have gone trolling for the most dishonest, toxic people they can find. They are either too lazy to give you anything other than a canned response or vile, abusive, clowns who gaslight their victims. It’s been made worse by allowing users to directly report anything to admins. Now packs of idiots run around reporting anything they disagree with or issuing false reports on people who happen to catch their abusive eyes. The communities I frequented were well moderatored. It was the admins who were absolutely out of control. It is not a joke to say that they lie, abuse, and, in my case, actually tried to change the log to hide what they were doing. Customer Service is non-existent. Anything short of public scorn gets ignored. If you pursue Newsweek, you’ll occasionally get a puff piece about something off of Reddit. That’s the most you need to invest in this app. Horrible user experience created by abusive employees. You can be absolutely fine on the forum, but it’s Reddit employees themselves that ruin it for everyone. Wall Street is refusing to issue an IPO, you be wise to invest the same amount: nothing..Version: 2023.12.0

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

App is fine, mods are on a constant power tripAfter 5 years I’m leaving Reddit because the mods are constantly on a power trip and nothing ever seems to get done about it, getting perma banned for completely arbitrary reasons. Eg, getting banned from r/dogs for saying I wasn’t a fan of pitbulls on a completely non-related sub. I didn’t harass or bully anyone, although that seems to happen A LOT on Reddit and those users never seem to get banned for saying vile things about people who are disabled, overweight, or god forbid, a woman. Sort the loser mods out who’s lives are so empty their only forms of validation is banning people for having an opinion that differs from their own, even when that opinion doesn’t break the sub or Reddit rules. It’s not just one or two subs, it’s a sitewide problem and it’s only getting worse..Version: 2022.39.0

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

Finally lost my premiumLeaving my previous review below because it’s still so true. Left for Lemmy, no way I’m using this godawful app. Riddled with ads and completely unintuitive. I was given free premium 4 years ago, and like a lot of redditors (who haven’t been guided enough!) I lost mine this month. I was hoping to carry on using it, I didn’t think the ads would be too bad. No. Within a day and a half I had downloaded Apollo. The ads are almost every 3 posts, and almost always irrelevant to me. When I open reddit now the first ad is below the first post. It’s too much. If the ads were at least a little more spaced out I might have continued. There is no way that I could justify spending over £6 a month on this. It’s a shame as I am so used to the format, but I don’t think it will take me longer to get used to my new, free format. So long guys, it was fun while it lasted..Version: 2023.25.0

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

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

API changes are an ugly display of greedReddit deserves to lose its whole business based on the greed and shamelessness they have displayed through their API cost changes..Version: 2023.22.0

Would give it 0…2 is actually more so it affects the average more. But honestly Reddit - why? I lasted a few minutes in this app and it is simply terrible. You had a great community and platform and ruined it all due to greed. Also the ads. Seriously, the ads. They’re not even relevant, they’re plastered everywhere. Thanks Reddit but I’m off your platform now as that’s what you wanted..Version: 2023.25.0

A terrible app that’s much worse than third party alternativesReddit are intentionally destroying third-party apps and apps and relying on the hard work of unpaid mods to run their site. That alone would be worthy of one star, but on top of that, their app is unresponsive, poorly designed, and far less useful than the third-party apps they’re shutting out..Version: 2023.22.0

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

Useless updates and unintuitive AIWow! This app was great a few years ago; always my go-to! It was easy to navigate and preferred it over the desktop version. But ever since they changed the video player, it’s been going downhill. The community has been vocal about the bad updates and begged to go back, but the developers basically told everyone to kick sand. I dealt with the video player because I didn’t like any alternatives, but recently, they moved the ‘sort by’ menu to the settings! You know how to tap 3 buttons to get to the menu vs the original 1. Why would they change this? Incompetence. For the sake of changing stuff, they change THE most used feature on the app. With this update, it is my final use of this horrid app. Maybe it will change in the future, but with other social media platforms incorporating videos into their app, I doubt Reddit mobile will stray away. The best thing about Reddit was that it was a social media platform that didn’t *feel* like a social media app, but now they’re moving in that direction with their exclusive, dumb ideas. It’s a shame, I’ll be using the alternative and learning it from the beginning because Reddit mobile is NOT getting better and getting much, much worse. 1 star. Terrible app. Deleted..Version: 2022.23.0

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

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

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

Stay back, and don't come back until their API prices are reverted.As of now with the abysmal prices of Reddit's API plus their absolutely narcissistic way that they have handled the community's answers, the user are now less valuable than the revenue their API calls produce. Many apps will be shutting down TOMORROW because the prices they have been given are madness. For instance, Apollo, a 3rd party app that has been running for the past 10 years, and has even been recognized by iPhone (i.e. WWDC) is 24 cents for every 1000 API calls, with each call being sent for just about anything you do. Comment? Call. Post? Call. Upvote or downvote? Either one is a call. With all of those costing 24 cents to Apollo to give to Reddit, this amounts to 2 million dollars, MONTHLY. Keep in mind, the sole maker of the app, u/iamthatis AKA Christian, ran the app and only supported himself through completely optional extras. Apollo won't even be the only casualty of such a change. Narwhal, Reddit is Fun, etc. u/spez AKA Steve Huffman, you have gave each and every moderator team, the people who made your servers live, a singular clap then a "Screw you". Maybe that 2 Million a month won't be so worth it when you'll have a community that loathes you, and if you don't know what "loath" means, which I completely understand by this point, this means you'll be considered the enemy of Reddit..Version: 2023.24.0

Terrible app without a focus on usersI’ve had to delete my Reddit app today, it is garbage. It’s readability and functionality is poor. It drives ads and reddits own function like surveys like no tomorrow. 3rd party apps were the only way to read reddit in a protected and functional manner. When 3rd party apps are taken offline, is when I quit Reddit forever..Version: 2023.22.0

Declining featuresI’ve used this app for years. For the last 2 and half years or so, almost every update tries to ‘refine’ the app to make it better. It adds in recommendations that I don’t want, new tabs I never asked for, breaks the post swipe feature (or just outright removes it), forces the media player into a poor TikTok replica that no one asked for. I miss the way this app worked from about 3 years ago. The search bar at the top didn’t randomly break, the video’s actually played mostly correct. For how much I use the app, I can’t really be justified in giving it a 1 star. Considering that this app is marketed as the official Reddit app, I’d expect them to know their target audience, but competing apps are only growing more popular due to new and increasing issues with this app. I’m probably not leaving Reddit for a long while, but I don’t know how much longer I can commit to this app. June 18, 2023 Updated the app a couple weeks ago. I absolutely love how often the app crashes, I cannot scroll for me than 10-15 minutes before it crashes. If I’m on the app for a few minutes, background it, lock my phone and come back an hour or two later, it’ll crash almost immediately. I’m going down to a 1 star review because the app is literally only growing worse. That’s also not even touching the removal of 3rd party apps. I did not think it would get worse, and then it did..Version: 2023.23.1

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

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

Zero Customer ServiceI was actually a huge fan of Reddit. I frequently purchased coins to give away fake internet awards, I purchased many of their collectibles and I finally started paying for premium. I much preferred Reddit over other social media apps like Discord and Twitter, but that all changed thanks to my experience these last few months. I was just before my two year cake day and ended up with something I’m told is an “IP ban” a ban evasion that never occurred because I was no longer banned in the sub at the time the comments were made. It all started after I was unbanned from a community and as soon as I posted my first comment in that sub, I received a temporary ban. After the temp ban was over, I reached out to the subreddit mods and to support to make sure that I was officially in the clear to make comments in that sub again. The mods said I was fine, but Reddit support never responded. I took a chance and made a comment on that sub again and, boom….permanent ban. I have made multiple requests to support with zero response, other than “the ban stands”. It’s as if nobody is reading or investigating what I have been explaining. Any reasonable person could look at the evidence I am providing (screen shots from the mods) and see that the permanent ban was in error..Version: 2023.09.0

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

Reddit does not care about its usersKilling 3rd party apps is nothing but an exercise of corporate greed and an absolute disregard for this website's users. the users are the heart and soul of reddit and literally the reason reddit can make profits at all. increasing your API request pricing sends a loud and clear message than you do not care about your moderators (who keep your site running for free) or anybody with disability who requires an accessible format to engage with content on reddit. (and don't pretend the reddit app is equipped to accomodate blind people in its current state..) this is a pathetic cash grab and until reddit decides to change, this will remain a cruel reminder that this company cares about monopolising its niche for maximum profits with no regard for how that affects the users that let reddit profit in the first place..Version: 2023.23.0

Just awfulThis app is so awful I’d rather just not use reddit than use it. Every third post displayed is an ad (Often offensive ones) and they often take up over 50% of the screen. The UI manages to be too big and too small simultaneously. You might get three posts or comments on screen at the same time if you’re lucky, but the buttons to navigate or do anything other than open a post are so small and fiddly that it makes it difficult to not hit the wrong thing, and in my personal experience presents an accessibility issue for those with impaired fine motor skills. Speaking of accessibility issues: This app is unusable for blind people. Reddit know this and have never made a meaningful effort to fix or improve things despite many others being able to. Excluding people based on disability is a great look in 2023 /s..Version: 2023.23.1

Stop putting recommended posts and fix video playerHonestly getting out of hand, reddit needs to stop putting recommended posts from subreddits I don’t follow in my home feed, I just want to see stuff from what I follow. Make a separate page for exploring similar to instagram and lastly fix the video player, how long is it gonna be till it works properly?.Version: 2023.29.0

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. Update: threw years later, and yes the app is still terrible. They messed with algorithm or whatever so you only see like 10 subs in your list on your home page. What the hell man. It’s like cancer, it’s getting progressively worse as time goes by..Version: 2023.48.0

Very sensitive community/should have better guidelinesYou can’t even state your own opinion with out getting bashed even if it is valid. People make hate pages about other people and im sure it says that you are not supposed to support any sort of bullying or harassment or send links or @ other people and screenshots. The community is just full of sad and awful people who think they know everything and say they want to make the world a better place but then make snark pages about people just because they view the world differently or have a different opinion. So many people get away with nasty hateful things on this platform to where it is worse than tiktok and twitter combined. Honestly the way the app is advertised makes it seem like a wonderful community and so supportive but in reality everyone on their brings u down. No wonder why so many people are depressed on this platform the whole thing is full of hate and ugliness. I don’t know if the owners or people that run the platform know what really happens on their but they should have alot more control on what is said and posted on their just like other platforms. There are seriously older adults on their along with probably minors that talk horribly about one another. The whole community is just horrible its self literally can’t even scroll down without seeing a post hating on someone; just full of so many sad people that think they are doing something right in the world..Version: 2022.18.1

Chronological feedFor a very long time this app worked as I wanted - I just want to see a feed of posts arranged from new to old on the home page. Now, I can only see that if I select the Latest tab when I open the app. And of course I can’t find any way to make Latest my default setting. I can see why Facebook, Twitter and Reddit do this, but it’s not a great user experience and just pushes people like me into using third party apps..Version: 2022.45.0

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

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

Apollo is better. Shame on Reddit.Thank you for greedily pushing out the only option to make your service usable. Account will be deleted come June 30th & I’m hoping others follow suit..Version: 2023.22.0

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

Good Until Recent UpdateI have been using the app for about 3 years now and it was great….Until the latest update. The problem in question is related to photos. You use to be able to click a photo and then double-tap to zoom in….Now you cannot. On top of that, it now opens the photo with the post text forcibly overlaid at the bottom. This will cut off the content for some of the photos. You use to be able to “light-tap” and the overlaid text would disappear, but now the “light tap” just does nothing. It also disables the ability for me to do the “force click” on my iPhone. Using the pressure sensor on the screen you could essentially “right-click” and it would bring up the share menu. All three of these features disappeared/appeared in the last two weeks. It’s absolutely awful and makes browsing Reddit an absolute chore. I’m not sure who or what made them change direction on such an simple feature. Making it infinitely more complicated without providing any actual features/improvements. Edit: Additionally in another new update. They made it so that if you click the like button, it actives the share button automatically afterwards….Now every time I like something, the app lags and tries to get me to share it….I have to close it and the app to get it to stop. WORST UPDATE IN THE HISTORY OF APPS..Version: 2023.29.0

Riddled with ads and soulless tooComing from a reddit user of over 10 years, reddit took over alien blue and turned it into this monstrosity. The app has useless promoted content suggestions that cannot be opted out and the navigation is more akin to TikTok than one you actually drive for the content you want to see yourself. Suggestions to the devs have fallen on deaf ears and their focus is only to monetise and collect data from users. Was a reddit premium user but the constant tone deaf feedback (or lack of it) means that this app and the platform will slowly die on a hill for a platform that solely relies on grass roots content generation. The new API changes for third party developers takes the icing on the cake. This reddit app was purely used for new chat purposes (what’s with that? There’s DM, chat and new chat) and now they’re forcing third parties to funnel to their app. No thank you..Version: 2023.21.0

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

Does not care about users, moderators, or developersAt one point in time Reddit was a free speech centric community with quality content and communities and at this point in time it is an over-corporatized and over-valued app. The Reddit team has shown its lack of care for users with third party readers, developers of apps and bots that can help everything from getting you a job to automoderation, and moderators by making their jobs harder and threatening to replace the founders do once great communities for expressing their opinion on the current state of Reddit. Furthermore they are even unwilling to work with some developers who are willing to pay for the API access. This company has consistently said one thing and done the exact opposite for the last few years and the site is suffering because of it. With a notable example being Reddit stating they’d like to avoid being like elon and then weeks later admitting they’re actively replicating his business model which quite blatantly killed Twitter. After June 30th I will no longer be using or supporting Reddit, an app I once loved as an alternative to other social media platforms offered. I highly recommend no one else does either. Good luck with an IPO for a site based on the volunteer work of others after you’ve angered everyone who built your success, because I feel the near future for Reddit contains a lot of internal sabotage and debt..Version: 2023.23.1

Was good but now a let downI’ve been using this app for years and it’s been fantastic. After a recent iOS update, it’s become unusable due to consistently stuttering when scrolling. The scrolling doesn’t happen just on the feeds, but even in the settings menu. It’s extremely lacking in responsiveness and as a result, I’m having to browse Reddit through other methods. Please fix this app..Version: 2022.43.1

Money hungryThe new pricing of the api for third party apps really shows their true colors. They make up scandalous lies about people who bring them business and revenue..Version: 2023.24.0

Not great for how long it has been aroundThis app is 9 or 10 years old and is still missing some basic features. - personal home page with the subs (communities) the user has in their list. - proper text edit when commenting - access to the community sidebar and rules Just to name a few..Version: 2023.24.0

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

Not nearly as enjoyable of an experienceI’ve used Apollo to access Reddit ever since I’ve had an account, so I never knew what the native app experience was like and why so many people said it was trash. Now I know. It lacks so many features, it keeps turning my notifications back on, and it’s totally bogged down with ads. Even worse, it keeps populating my feed with “recommended” subreddits because I happened to read one post in there once, but then not showing me posts from the majority of the subreddits I follow. Seriously, half my feed is ads and recommended subreddits I don’t care about (otherwise I’d subscribe to them), and the other half is posts from the same 4-5 subreddits that I am subscribed to. I’m literally missing out on 95% of the content I want to see (as indicated BY SUBSCRIBING) and then getting inundated with content I don’t want and didn’t ask for. What a horrible UX design. Your UI design could use an overhaul as well. Even something as seemingly simple as following a comment thread is difficult because there is nothing that helps differentiate the comment level, so the longer the thread gets, the harder it is to tell which child comment goes to which parent comment. I mean, come on. Reddit is a conversational forum! Being able to easily follow the conversation is UI 101! Anyway. I can now honestly say I agree - this app is trash. It’s too bad Reddit DGAF..Version: 2023.27.0

FULL OF NPCS WHO THINK THEYRE THERAPISTSThese NPCs give out the same advice: go to therapy blah blah blah It’s very boring and they are also fond of diagnosing people with narcissistic personality disorder. They’re favourite term is “narcissist” tbh. Whether you post about relationships or your pet pitball they’re fond of throwing that term around. It’s very boring and doesn’t help. These NPCs will all write the same responses. On SuicideWatch there are also dangerous people who are approaching suicidal people telling them they can help them and then they will offer to sell them Nembutal which is a lethal euthanasia. I posted about feeling depressed and got inboxed by one pretending to have empathy and they will persuade you to buy Nembutal. These sick people prey on vulnerable people and make money out of depressed people. It needs to be vetted because this Nembutal buisness is very serious and these sellers operate on Reddit inboxing depressed people and they’re very convincing. This is dangerous especially because they’re are young suicidal people on here who may make such a purchase..Version: 2023.36.0

Garbage appVideos randomly mute when I seek through them, ads fill up 99% of my feed, so much notifications of the most irrelevant things, cannot download videos natively without using a new website, the list is just begininnng Maybe before you start extorting small indie developers for the api of your garbage website make your app, the reason people use a third party, at least somewhat useable This is pathetic, you earn more money than you need you can easily fix your garbage app.Version: 2023.26.0

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

Keeps resetting my notification settingsI have repeatedly (and repeatedly, and repeatedly, and—) changed my settings so that I don’t get random notifications for things like recommended or trending posts. I only want notifications for things like replies to my own posts and comments, and changing the settings temporarily fixes this for me. However, without fail, after maybe a couple months it randomly resets so that all notifications are selected and I start getting a bunch I don’t want again, and have to go back in and deselect a bunch of them all over again. Based on the tons of complaints I’ve found all over Reddit’s own platform, this has been an issue for a very long time for many many people and there doesn’t seem to have ever been any attempt on Reddit’s behalf to solve it. Considering this is the only app I’ve ever had this problem with, it seems like at this point they either just really don’t care whether their app works right or they’re actively trying to annoy their user base with unwanted notifications on purpose. Honestly the app is fine otherwise, this really is the only reason I’m rating it one star because it’s such a stupid bug for an app this size to have, unless it really is on purpose but either way I get more annoyed each time it happens. This should be an easy fix guys, so dumb..Version: 2023.36.0

The website is great but this app is hot garbageI enjoy using Reddit for all types of things from help with specific subjects, to entertainment. That is why it pains me to say that this app is horrible. On mobile, Reddit forces you to use the app to view content from many of its subreddit but the app has to be closed and restarted every few minutes due to bugs. There are many issues but my biggest complaints are videos playing their audio over other videos, comments don’t post sometimes and sometimes they post twice, sometimes the app just stops loading things as if my internet went out but I check other apps and my internet is just fine, and the most common/most annoying bug where the video will play for about 10 seconds then mute itself. I unmute it then 10 seconds later it mutes again. I can’t use this app for more than 10 minutes without experiencing one of these bugs and the only way to fix it is to close and reopen the app. There are far more apps and if you have slow internet, watching videos is basically impossible as every time you fast forward or rewind it has to reload the whole thing and the video doesn’t play unless it’s fully loaded. There are many bugs and some have been around for a while. The website is great, but the app is hot garbage..Version: 2023.32.0

No thanksUnacceptable. The rise in API costs has essentially killed third-party apps, some of which were much loved by the community and a lifeline for disabled users. Add to that a swarm of bugs and glitches, Reddit has moved from being user-friendly to an inaccessible, bug-ridden disaster. Greed over accessibility, not cool..Version: 2023.24.0

Somehow this app keeps getting worse?My home feed consists of about 50% subreddits I've subscriber to, and 50% either ads or random other subreddits I don't want to see? The ads I can understand, but the other stuff is bizarre. I'm allowed to ask for a specific subreddit to not show up but it'll just be replaced with some other garbage I also don't want there. Also, the media player has taken such a downward turn it makes me assume the reddit team want people to hate this app. Why is it that I have to force-shutdown the app after every ~3 videos so that they'll stop playing on a loop in the background? And if I'm lucky enough for that to not be the case, the video I'm currently watching will randomly turn its audio on or off, while repeatedly pausing once it reaches the 2/3rds mark of the video. There are some great communities on reddit but this app is so trash it's no longer worth it..Version: 2023.44.0

The mods and admins enforce rules selectively, so it’s kind of the Wild West.After being trashed by dozens of redditors for expressing views which comport with my Jewish ethics and in a way which exhibits autism/Asperger’s, I reported numerous abusive and harassing posts and plead with moderators and the Reddit admin to take action. One of the moderators then mocked me and suggested that I was being a “Karen.” I then reported this abuse to Reddit admin, but no apparent action was taken, nor was the comment removed. The same moderator even linked to a post on my personal page as a means of brigading and furthering the harassment. Of course, I reported that post to Reddit admin, but you can guess what happened in response: nothing. So I decided to fight fire with fire as a means of making a point. Naturally, I was temporarily banned from Reddit. Way to go, admin. You let people pile on the guy for expressing his Jewish values and for communicating in a style that’s common for autistic people, but you immediately took action to ban the same guy the moment that he responded in kind as a means of demonstrating the arbitrary methods of selective enforcement. You proved the very point that I set out to make. You don’t have to bother with lifting my ban since my conduct was just my attempts to set fire to the place on my way out. I was done with Reddit by that point because you utterly failed to enforce the standards which you purport to value in your policy..Version: 2023.29.0

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

Horror Experience at BellagioBellagio has been the worst experience. There is no complimentary service incl water or consierge downstairs. You have to wait for hours to get checked in and the whole process is conducted without any smile or desire to make you welcome. The whole hotel aim is to squeeze as much money out of you as possible. Smoke and mad crowds sitting in front of poker machines fill the whole downstairs area. The pool is overcrowded and closes early. In the room the fridge is full of their own overpriced beverages and alcohol and it took us 2 days fight to get the alcohol removed. Everywhere are sensors and you can’t move things from these shelves without them charging the credit card. The room wasn’t cleaned on daily bases. On top of that they failed to follow the protocol and didn’t check the TV between stays. Without any evidence nor contacting us they just claimed we broke it and charged over $2000 AUD for it..Version: 2023.28.1

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

Bring back “Latest”This morning, I did my standard thing and went to the “latest” view - because I’m apparently some kind of oddity that wants to see things from their communities in chronological order instead of some arbitrary algorithmic nonsense order, then this evening (right before bothering to type up this review) I go to have a bit of a scroll, and to my surprise there’s no “latest”. This one simple change makes the app literally unusable to me, because after maybe 2 dozen posts from subreddits I actually follow (and probably about half as many posts again as ads) it just becomes endless “you might like this community” bs. Why are social media platforms so adamant about their users not seeing things how THEY want?.Version: 2023.39.0

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

Worse All The TimeIf I want to seek out new subreddits, I will do that. If I’m curious what videos other users are watching, I will find out. But when I launch Reddit, I want to see the feed I’ve curated for myself first and foremost. The ads are awful enough. Reddit’s suggestions only add to the clutter. That I can disable these suggestions is beside the point. I am able to decide for myself what I want to see and participate in. Even more frustrating are the icons at the top of my feed that notify me there are live audio conversations in various subreddits. Although I’d disabled every so-called feature that seemed remotely related, I could not rid myself of these icons. I wondered, did I have to visit each individual subreddit to disable these? Are they permanent UI fixtures? The answer to the last, according to a comment on a changelog post, is yes. For now, at least, and for too long. The team “will be building a toggle” to opt out of the live bar. They implemented the feature and didn’t bother to provide users a choice in whether to participate. They’ll get around to that. Create separate feeds for suggestions and live dialogue, put them beside Popular and News, fine. I’ve no doubt some percentage of the user base are interested. But don’t opt in on my behalf..Version: 2022.23.0

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

Terrible compared to 3rd party appsThe official app lacks in a lot of features, stability and accessibility. The lack of concern from reddit infuriated enough of the community for them to develop 3rd party alternatives which one over the heart of the community. Now that 3rd party apps have been killed there is no viable alternative. I would suggest a different social platform. After all the community is responsible for feeding content to the platform and moderating it on a voluntary basis but we’re expected to now do this under the corporate thumb of some Chinese company. Would not recommend this app. Do a search for “Lemmy” - a decentralised reddit alternative.Version: 2023.25.0

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

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

Every time they fix one thing, they break three more.Every time this app updates, it gets worse. They change useless things like the visuals of the buttons to save images and videos (if and when that works). On that note, for reasons unknown to man or beast, heaven or earth, they removed the ability to save GIFs. It’s not the first time, and I assume sooner or later it’ll be back and they’ll want praise for once again doing the absolute bare minimum. The ability to save videos almost never works either, unless you know the trick to go to comments, go back, press the save button again, and hope to your personal god *that* works. Even if it does work, for some reason the videos always save without sound. All of these used to be features that inexplicably are constantly removed, changed, replaced, and put back. Honestly, I don’t know why this app, of all apps, needs to update this much. Especially when most of the changes are aesthetic and the ones that aren’t always make things worse. I never got a chance to use any of the third-party apps, but I wish that I had. The only reason I’m giving this two stars instead of one is so that people don’t think that this is a fake review and it gets filtered out. This is a real review and real frustration from a real user. But it’s like the people who designed this app don’t actually use it themselves. Just make things work and then leave it alone..Version: 2023.27.0

Worst Reddit AppMuch better off with a well made Reddit client. There are many good options..Version: 2023.24.0

Reddit keeps making the app worse with every updateThere are too many occasions where an update has made Reddit worse. It’s pretty much every update at this point so I can’t be arsed to list them all. The most recent and most annoying one for me is that when you are on your home page, if you clicked on a post and started swiping right you would get to the next post. Easy way of switching between posts that just requires one swipe. So easy to scroll through posts and that is how I, and I cannot stress this enough, A L W A Y S used Reddit. They have removed this feature entirely in the newest update. Why? No idea, absolutely no reason for them to do that. Might honestly be the last straw for me using Reddit. So insanely stupid, every update is like this. Use one of the other none reddit third party apps so you can use Reddit without having to use this stupid app. I swear they just don’t want people to use it..Version: 2023.16.0

Instagram 2.0Final Update: I’ve used this app for 5+ years and am now deleting it. Between the rearranged USI making it harder to enjoy, the recent API issue, and the ads, my god the ads. It seems every third post is an ad and they’re never anything I’m interested in. There are thousands of Christian’s ads that are just completely tone death. Also the content quality has just diminished. It’s great for wasting time but there really isn’t anything that interesting going on anymore. I wouldn’t recommend it, it’s just a huge waste of time. I’m deleting it for good now. Finally time to go out and touch grass. The recent updates have really killed the magic of Reddit. It feels like an Instagram clone now. They made the list of subreddits harder to access and replaced them with a “feed” of popular stuff that I’m not interested in. The ads and recommended communities are excessive and Intrusive. Very much has gone from, online form for discussion, to social media “check out my avatar” and upvote my posts! A lot of the magic that made Reddit unique has given way to the pressure of becoming a social media platform. If you want to look at pictures get Instagram instead. Has been a great opportunity for me to quit though. This app is a complete waste of time and would not recommend. Given 2 stars just for what Reddit used to be. The interface has ceased to be user friendly.Version: 2023.25.0

This app is why I wouldn’t invest in Reddit’s IPOThey’ve actively been making it worse. They removed sorting options, they keep breaking the video player, it doesn’t have necessary functionality for moderators and on and on. I get it, they need to sell ads and drive engagement in order to make money. I don’t think any of the changes actually help with that, though. Ads and recommendations are poorly targeted at best, and users have little control over what they see. I mean, I keep getting crypto ads because I’m on a sub that makes fun of it. Recommended posts are even worse. Now there’s some nagware telling you to share a post instead of taking a screenshot. Which you can’t turn off. Just let us take the damn screenshot, okay? All this is a symptom of bad management. Development of this app is a dumpster fire. Reddit doesn’t understand its own platform or user base, as you can see when they mismanage nearly every crisis. Currently they’re mishandling a revolt among power users and moderators over the decision to kill off third party apps which frankly work better than this app. Tl;dr: the app sucks and Reddit management is terrible..Version: 2023.24.0

Trash appGreed has killed Reddit..Version: 2023.22.0

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

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

Reddit still requires work in a lot of areasI downloaded reddit for the pure enjoyment of having some place to post and interact with different communities. However, I noticed when receiving a follower you don’t have the option of “knowing” who follows you but you get a notification saying that person followed you. It’s annoying not being able to see who interacts with your posts from time to time or who follows you. Another thing is inbox messages you can’t delete them from your reddit inbox meaning they’ll stay there until you delete your account completely. Wish that wasn’t the case but sadly that’s how reddit is, the app isn’t really successful in managing followers like you can easily remove them on instagram or check who’s following you. Spam bots follow but you can’t get them to unfollow you which is ridiculous. Although I love reddit and the platform because you can post anonymously on reddit posts. I wish they’d focus on the important things of the app, like managing inbox messages and managing your followers or remove followers from your profile without deleting your account..Version: 2023.04

This app is so absolutely disgusting, how do people like it??I have found so many horrific things on reddit, everyone is so toxic, all the communities are so weird in their own way. Nobody is kind, everyone expects quality posting from you even when you just wanna have some fun rather than think about the quality of your post and whether everyone will like it or not (they won’t). There is always that one person that might agree with you yet still has something against you. Worst of all, everyone is blind to this revolting facade of reddit, it doesn’t even do a good job at hiding it. If you are ready to dive into a hellish and horrible experience of toxicity, confusion and chaos? Be reddit’s guest, but from my experience (I rarely even used it that much and even I found this side out so easily) avoid reddit at all costs, it won’t even bring you any gain, unlike other social media apps where you can build a personal social media presence and popularity, where you can maybe find a way to get some financial gain. Reddit? It’s just a bunch of disgusting and unacceptable people spewing their negativity on that little spark of a positive person that comes on the app every once in a while. Stay. Away. From Reddit..Version: 2022.42.0

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

Moderators problem abuse their powerYou get banned for no reason or minor issues they are not being fair, use their power to do whatever they want remove your post mute you if they don’t like it. Super unreasonable. These moderators are crazy they need to be sent to the mental initiation for a reality check. They refuse to communicate with you cause they hold power against you. They are biased and hold grudges suddenly accuse you your post from months ago too make up nonsense excuse to remove or ban because they are offended when you speak up. Absolute terrible. I do get some good advice from other users, however, the politics need to change, the app isn’t good, and I fully agree with some other reviews on here that pointed out the same issue I said..Version: 2023.22.0

Server ErrorMy thoughts on Reddit have been rather positive until today. I comment or post like I usually would with no issues until now. I have been logged out & unable to log back into my account, not being able to create a new account either. The issue that keeps popping up is a “server error” & to “try again later”. I’ve deleted the app, re-downloaded it & I’ve restarted my phone. I’ve tried to log in online since the app isn’t allowing me to & even there it’s saying “server error, try again later” You guys need to fix this bug, I’m afraid I’ve lost my account to this so please fix it..Version: 2023.10.0

I really triedComing from Apollo my expectations of this app were low, but I jumped in to give it a try. Even subscribed to Reddit Premium to get the best experience. Goodness what a mess. Clumsy swiping, especially on the Home Screen, where swiping sideways takes you to unwanted Popular and Latest screens. If you swipe enough to the left you get the sidebar. The video player is awful. It’s trying to be TikTok, but it’s just plonked in and doesn’t sit right. Comments are shown in a section under the player, while it keeps playing. A completely different layout than other posts. Videos play even though I’ve set them not to automatically. There’s also no indication if an image is a thumbnail or an external site, so I’m constantly going to other websites. I wouldn’t click the thumbnail if I knew this, but go to the comments instead. The bugs are outrageous, considering the calibre this app should be. I press on a video and a random posts loads behind it, so closing the video shows the random post. There are some good things that earn an extra star. I like my subreddits being in a sidebar rather than a whole screen…erm…OK that’s literally the only good thing. I’ve set to a 1 star. I’m disappointed. If you want me to keep my Premium subscription, make app better please..Version: 2023.25.0

Reddit unusable on iPhoneLike many users, I access reddit threads through Google/ web searches as it more specifically finds the answer I am looking for, however when I click on a search result thread, despite being logged in and having enabled nsfw settings it will prompt me to ‘view in app’ or ‘no, take me home’. ‘View in app just takes me to reddit in the App Store which I then have to open and doesn’t take me to the thread I want. ‘No, take me home’ just takes me to the reddit home page. I can’t read the thread I want to read. I don’t care how I read the thread, through the app or not- but just take me there!!!! It would also be nice to read reddit threads without the constant aggressive plugging of the app- constant pop-ups are extremely annoying. Maybe if you solved this problem so that opening in the app actually lead me to where I’m trying to go I would use your app..Version: 2022.26.0

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

Terrible AppThis is by far the worst app for Reddit and with the new API changes going forward this will be the only app available, and unfortunately I’ll have to stop using Reddit because this app is unusable..Version: 2023.22.0

Sluggish and annoyingThe app reminds me of a house where I grew up that had like 4 different extensions built and was leaky and cold as a result. It seems they were both built with the same methodology; patch ad nauseam. If you don’t fix this reddit will never be in the mainstream, because mainstream users will not tolerate such annoyances as stuttering videos, the app claiming video has no sound when it was playing a second ago. Also, ads should not pause my music I won’t buy your product if you ad pauses my music. Reddit shouldn’t have to be told this, it makes me instantly swap to another social media when that happens. Why am I complaining so much? Because reddit changed the API so now I have no choice but to use this terrible app for a great website..Version: 2023.27.0

TerribleThe app has not gotten better and instead of using competition to be better they simply shut down competitor apps. So disappointing.Version: 2023.22.0

Zero customizationWhat is with default apps and their in ability to understand their users wants? July 1, 2023 will be a sad day for sure..Version: 2023.24.0

The only social media/sharing site I useI've been using Reddit for 6 years, and while there's been a lot of changes-some good and some bad-it's still the best media platform, by far. The voting system and user content personalization keeps the content fresh and of decent quality. I never get bored. There's such great variety on here: politics, science, literature, world/local news, popular news, comedy, idiotic comments, philosophical conversation, support groups, --the list is literally endless, and if you can't find the sub you want, they're very easy to make up (although moderating can be a pain sometimes, I hear). The app itself is well-designed, and easier to navigate than it's sister app, Alien Blue. That said, I wish there was a way to easily (or at all) quote (c&p) other users and/or to access the content on the site in safari. I actually have the question our on r/reddithelp as to whether these are possible (I thought they were), so if I find they are, I'll update the review. Update, June 2023. My how the mighty have fallen. I’m not even wasting my time outlining all of the ways Reddit has let its users down. I’ve begun to suspect it’s intentional, as the last bastion of progressive discourse online. Regardless, and for many, many other reasons, after over a decade as a user and sometime-mod, I’m absolutely done with Reddit. This site is destined for the garbage..Version: 2023.24.0

Terrible UI and poor business decisionsWhat kind of stupid app resets your defaults constantly? I don’t want to get notifications. Stop turning the option back on. Don’t get be wrong, I absolutely love Reddit - but this mobile app is straight garbage. Frequent updates which unnecessarily change the UI layout lead to a frustrating user experience. The settings bar would move from the left to the right for no reason other than…to be different, I guess? This really messes with the muscle memory and I absolutely despise such changes. Reddit’s stance on 3rd party apps is wrong and I condone Reddit’s behaviour. They’ve lied and disrespected 3rd party app developers and it’s shameful what this company has resorted to. Make your app better and incorporate the hundreds of features that 3rd party apps can do before going after them and then maybe, just maybe, I’ll give you an extra star on this review..Version: 2023.39.0

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

Bloatware on iOS. Beware.Tons of unnecessary ads, storage space and network usage behind the scenes. Although it’s an official app, I do not suggest using this app to access Reddit..Version: 2023.22.0

So-so application, too many bugsI’ve used a number of old Reddit applications & if I had a choice in the matter I’d still be using them due to the lack of quality control & other annoying quirks. The first obvious thing that jumps out is that if you’re using a tablet in landscape orientation, the list of threads only takes up the middle portion of the screen which is a waste of space. The next ‘quirk’ is actually opening the post. If posts have media they can either open & show the media in a smaller size with some of the comments, or it can open full screen. However this seems inconsistent and often leads to a whole host of other issues. Issues I’ve had: - posts with videos auto play when opened, despite having auto play set to ‘never’ - posts open but then refuse to navigate ‘back’ (to ‘home’), with no back arrow & dont respond to a swipe right. You then have to tap the pic to maximise it, get the close button, can close it & then get the back arrow - app completely failing to respond to a swipe right & having no back button, forcing you to be stuck reading the post until you close the app - tapping on a post opens 2 or 3 previously viewed posts before the one you wanted. You then need to back out through each to get home. On top of that, there’s many features I really miss from the other apps, such as seeing the posting user in the list of posts. As such, this is merely a below average app that could be so much better..Version: 2023.36.0

A forced, and frustrating, messLet me be clear: I have used the Apollo app for my Reddit needs for about 2 years now. Prior to this I was using the official Reddit app. I didn’t “hate” the official app, but in comparison to so many apps in the App Store, it felt very behind and lackluster. Bad loading times, the UI was horrible, and just an overall poor experience that I put up with because “it’ll get better.” After switching to Apollo on a whim, I found a solution to every single issue the official Reddit app had for me at the time. Everything, every little detail, was so thought out. The UI, the gestures to comment, upvote/downvote, etc. was so useful and felt so natural on an iPhone. However, Reddit has forced Apollo to close, and I decided to give the official app another go. While it improved since I last used it, it certainly is not the best app to use Reddit on. That one is gone, all by Reddit’s own doing. Reddit should really take what Apollo did so well and use that to build onto their own app. The little details do go a long way, and I genuinely believe the Reddit app could benefit by taking these details and working them into their app. But the fact that they are, for lack of better term, forcing this decision to use a much worse app is truly a shame..Version: 2023.25.0

Unfriendly to DevelopersReddit has a clear effort to remove third party integration by directly hiking the API costs to an unrealistic and misguided levels. Do not support this company- there are other ways to pass free time then to support a company which destroys livelihoods..Version: 2023.22.0

Issues opening Reddit from SafariI really like Reddit and I try to browse the forums and threads frequently but I’m pretty frustrated with the repeated issues I’ve had. Reddit frequently forgets my account so I’m pretty much always signed out. And my major problem right now is whenever I pull up Safari and try to google a particular thread to look at, the link will redirect me to Reddit. That fine except it’s super janky. I’ll say yes go to app and it will (on Safari) switch to a second page and then give me a second pop telling me I need to download the Reddit app (which I obviously already have). It will pull up Reddit at that point despite telling me I don’t have the app 🤦🏼‍♀️ It usually rapid fire switches between a whole bunch of blank pages on Reddit before finally loading whatever page I was trying to look at. Again, I really like Reddit but I definitely feel like the app is not refined. I don’t have these issues with any of the dozens of other apps I have and use regularly, including redirected to from Safari. I never encounter these issues except with Reddit. I explained best I could, but it’s very weird and frustrating. Hopefully Reddit can fix these issues. (And yes I always check and update Reddit, it never fixes it.).Version: 2023.09.0

Homophobic EmployeeI am a long time customer of Keezers going back to the 80s so I was thrilled to see that a location has opened in my Porter Square neighborhood. I recently had alterations done to a dress for a wedding and I sent my son and his friend there to find clothing and have alterations done for the same weddings. Today my son went to pick up his jacket and to purchase a shirt. While he was shopping an older man with glasses and a beard was helping some customers and talking loudly about “trannies”. This word is a slur for transgender people and is as offensive as using the N word. My son let the man know the correct, inoffensive word for what he was talking about, to which the man replied that he didn’t care. My son then told him that he is a transgender person and that he found his language offensive. The man repeated that he didn’t care. If this man is an employee he should be fired immediately for this behavior as a representative of the business. If this person is the new owner, SHAME ON YOU! I will never shop in Keezers again and I will let all of my neighbors and friends know not to shop there. I will also post reviews describing the disgusting treatment of my son in this store. This is completely unacceptable and I will do everything in my power to make it clear this behavior won’t be tolerated..Version: 2023.31.0

Forcing people to use this terrible app is not the answerAs an avid Reddit user, I was excited to embrace the official Reddit app for a seamless mobile experience. However, after using it extensively, I must express my disappointment with its accessibility and Reddit's anti-competitive practices. It's evident that the company is prioritizing profit over user experience, as they have now decided to stifle third-party apps through price gouging. It is disheartening to witness Reddit's blatant disregard for the needs and preferences of its user base. Instead of fostering inclusivity and encouraging a diverse range of apps, Reddit has chosen to squash competition and force users into its subpar, poorly accessible official app..Version: 2023.21.0

Let’s talk about the app itself, and not the websiteHonestly I’d have to recommend that anyone installing Reddit for the first time find a different app to use it. Long time Reddit users have almost always hated the official app, but I never really understood their problem with it. I liked the UI, and there were a bunch of useful QoL features that other Reddit apps didn’t have. That is no longer the case. ~1.5 years ago every update started breaking or outright stripping those features. They’re always small changes. No one change really makes that big of an impact. Things like no longer being able to change the view (card, normal, compact) on search results, the weird comment ‘tray’ that prevents you from swiping horizontally between posts, the endless compatibility issues with various embedded video hosting sites, etc. The official app isn’t as broken as some people make it out to be. However, I still advise that new users not climb onboard the sinking ship. Any features you like/get used to in the official app will be removed before long, and there will be no way to get it back. Find an app made by a 3rd party that factors community feedback into development decisions..Version: 2022.31.1

Significantly worse than any of the third-party optionsThey’re killing third-party apps because they want a better valuation for an IPO, but their official app has a horribly unintuitive UI and it’s riddled with useless ads, tracking, and “suggestions” that make actually reading or contributing a horrible experience..Version: 2023.21.0

Third-party apps are significantly betterThe official Reddit app is terrible, and full of adverts. Luckily, there is a world of thirst-party apps out there where you can get all that great Reddit content in an app without ads, but with a better user experience, mod tools that actually work, and with accessibility options for the visually impaired community. But capitalism destroys all good things one way or another, and third-party apps are being charged such high prices to access Reddit’s API that they’re all shutting down. And once that happens, I’m leaving Reddit. It’s not just the ads (though they’re annoying enough), it’s the move to turn Reddit into another social media app that controls what content users see so they drive revenue. It’s exactly what led to terrible user experiences in any number of other platforms over the years, and I’m not sticking around to see Reddit make the same dumb mistake. Looking forward to reading more books instead!.Version: 2023.22.0

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

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

TerribleHow is this app getting such good reviews? It’s horrible! I’ve never seen a good word posted about this by anyone on Reddit. Anyway, I’m deleting this. It’s Apollo or nothing..Version: 2023.22.0

Not like ApolloTitle: Disappointing Experience with the "Reddit" App: A Review Rating: ★☆☆☆☆ As an avid user of social media apps, I recently had the unfortunate experience of using the "Reddit" app. I must say, it left me extremely disappointed and frustrated. Comparatively, the alternative app, "Apollo," offers a far superior user experience and has no ads, making it a more appealing choice for anyone seeking a seamless social media experience. First and foremost, the "Reddit" app seems determined to stifle competition by attempting to shut down "Apollo." This monopolistic behavior raises concerns about the fair and open nature of the social media landscape. It is disheartening to witness such actions from a platform that should prioritize user choice and healthy competition. Moreover, the "Reddit" app falls woefully short when it comes to user experience. Navigating through its cluttered interface feels like stumbling through a maze, with an overwhelming number of tabs, menus, and subreddits that make finding relevant content a tedious task. In contrast, "Apollo" offers a sleek and intuitive design that enhances usability and makes it a breeze to discover and engage with communities of interest. One of the most frustrating aspects of the "Reddit" app is the excessive presence of advertisements. They pop up incessantly, interrupting the user experience and making it difficult to focus on the content. It's clear that monetization takes precedence over user satisfaction. In contrast, "Apollo" respects its users by providing an ad-free environment, allowing for uninterrupted browsing and engagement. Furthermore, the frequency of updates on the "Reddit" app is disappointingly lackluster. It seems that the development team is not fully committed to addressing user feedback and improving the app's functionality. On the other hand, "Apollo" consistently pushes updates, introducing new features, resolving bugs, and listening to user suggestions. This commitment to improvement sets "Apollo" apart as a platform that genuinely values its users. In conclusion, I cannot recommend the "Reddit" app due to its poor user experience, intrusive ads, and questionable tactics in attempting to suppress competition. I urge users to consider "Apollo" as an alternative that offers a superior social media experience, free of ads, with frequent updates that cater to user needs. Don't settle for mediocrity when a more refined and user-friendly option is readily available..Version: 2023.22.0

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

A sub-par forced experienceThis app has forever been a disappointment. While reddit communities are kept alive by the content shared and moderated by users, the official app is a woeful experience. The only saving grace has been 3rd party apps, which thanks to short-sightedness and stubbornness are now forced to close. I've been a daily active user for many years. I won't redownload the official app, nor will I use reddit anymore. I'll mourn the loss of communities and knowledge, and curse the corporate mindset of greed that failed to consider where its content (and profit) comes from - the users generating and moderating content. Best of lack crashing your IPO, not that you'll need it..Version: 2023.22.0

API’s & GreedTL;DR Reddit is going to kill third party apps by overcharging them. Wouldn’t be so bad if the main app for mobile wasn’t so poor and if moderators got paid for their time - but no. The powers that be at Reddit HQ have decided that, in order to make more money, they will begin charging fees to third party apps for using data from Reddit. A reasonable idea in principle, but only for a reasonable price. However, this price has been placed at such a degree that no third party app will be able to continue to exist without quadrupling their own fees for their users. This is a move defined by greed and ill will, without sincere consideration for the people who actually use Reddit. Unfortunately, the main app on this AppStore for Reddit is bereft of many important features that third party users can enjoy. As it stands, Reddit is looking down the barrel of a gun and has declared the trigger will be pulled by the beginning of July. If done so, all third party apps die, and most of Reddit’s mobile user base with it. This review is in accordance with the recent protests being organised by moderators who, without third party mobile apps, would not be able to do their work - which they do for quite literally £0. Organise. Protest. Win..Version: 2023.22.0

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

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

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

Honestly just use the websiteI wanted to give the app a try, I really did. Mostly so that I wouldn’t have to look at the ugly “USE APP” button plastered on top of the mobile website. But I just could not do it. Even if you turn off notifications, the app has in-app little orange indicators that they constantly pester you with. Every day it sends me a popular post from a subreddit I am already subscribed to. There’s an annoying little orange dot that won’t go away until I look at it. Multiple times per day it gives me a little notification about subreddit chats or something. I’ve literally never used subreddit chats and do not want to. Somehow the list of chats that it notifies me about keeps growing, AND THE STUPID ORANGE DOT WILL NOT GO AWAY UNTIL I TAP ON ALL OF THEM. There is no way to turn this off. This is by far the most frustrating app user experience I’ve encountered. update: now it’s not even possible to get the mobile website to stop asking you to download the app. do yourself a favor and just quit reddit altogether. ask yourself why a company that basically only makes money on advertising is so insistent that you download their app, to the extent that they are removing features from their formerly functional website to influence your decision..Version: 2023.47.1

Transparent hate speech and toxicityI like reddit. I’ve subscribed to a bunch of great communities that are fun and constructive. But the flagrant hate speech and toxicity, and no way to combat it makes this app feel like 4chan sometimes. Communities on the front page like ‘Imthemaincharacter’ pride themselves on bullying and harassment, and while I often agree that some of these people deserve to be taken down a peg, the blatant vitriolic attitude to women especially is obvious. Reddit needs to be better, because it’s full to the brim with harassment of all kinds. Anyway, I guess this is just me becoming tired of it all. I wish I didn’t have to use an app that is okay with all this just to access a couple of positive niche communities..Version: 2024.10.0

Terrible app👎.Version: 2023.24.0

A saga of disappointmentWhile this app looks nice, it lacks so many great features from Alien Blue. At this point it's just not worth getting. Devs, please keep supporting Alien Blue, at least until this app is almost the same. Until then I'm going to stick with AB until this app is either on par with it or it stops working (Please keep supporting it). The above was written many years ago. Since then, the official reddit app has not improved in the slightest, becoming a masterclass in what to avoid in UI design and devolving into an ad filled mess. I would not be surprised to see the further tik-tokification of the platform go into overdrive with the recent events regarding third party apps being shut down. These third party apps (specifically Apollo) have provided an outstanding platform to browse reddit on, with clean UI, fast response, no ads, moderator functionality and excellent community engagement. The official reddit app is genuinely worse than browsing the website in safari. On June 30 the third party apps will disappear, and I would recommend getting a taste of what you have been and will miss out on in the future by using this absolute garbage software..Version: 2023.22.0

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

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

Threatened w/ ban for reporting animal abuseAutomated message warned me that i would be permanently banned if i keep false reporting. I have only reported blatant rule breaks such as animal abuse and sexism. Examples of animal abuse and sexism: kids put fish in a toilet while laughing and then flushed the toilet. Woman was saying men are genetically inferior and need to be cleansed from the gene pool. Reddit reviewed both and said that there was no rule break. Now i have been suspended for quoting a racist that i was responding to. They were saying variations of “why is it always [insert group of people based on skin color] doing x y z”, and i made an intelligent response after quoting the racist, clearly making a case for antiracism. I got suspended for “attacking marginalized or vulnerable groups of people” because reddit doesn't know what quotation marks mean. I have since found out that this is a common occurrence. Worst of all, this app is absolute brain rot and should be avoided at all costs. Over Fifty percent of redditors are children and the other half are people immature enough to use an app run by children for children. Ive already muted over fifty subreddits, but the brain rot has pervaded to ever corner of reddit. 6 years ago the app was better (but still a waste of time) and it has been in a sharp decline for at least 3 years now..Version: 2023.28.1

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

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

Terrible app, and it’s your only option starting July 1stDo you love having ads for religious extremism shoved down your throat multiple times a day? Do you wish there was no way to get this content out of your feed, no matter how much you report it or attempt to block the advertiser? This is the app for you! “Why, simply use a third-party app that doesn’t have ads!” Well, starting July 1st, third-party apps are shutting down due to Reddit imposing a brand new API pricing strategy that could cost third-party apps millions to continue running. Not only do these third-party apps provide a better user-experience than the god awful official app, it provides better accessibility options for disabled folks, as well as better modding tools for the people who generously donate their time to keep Reddit’s communities thriving. It’s a selfish, greedy move no matter how you spin it. I never felt the need to use third-party apps, but I understand their importance. If I wasn’t getting Jesus ads shoved down my throat every two seconds, I may have stuck around despite this awful decision, but this is my final straw. Based on the number of subreddits protesting this decision, I doubt I’m the only one. Hope y’all enjoy watching your user base dwindle..Version: 2023.22.0

It's not THAT badI noticed they've added the ability to search by flair in a much more accessible way, which is so useful and something I've wanted for ages, because you could always on desktop. But I'm only seeing this on a select few subreddits, so they really should add this to others. However, unrelated, I've also had a lot of occasions where audio from a completely random, separate video plays over another video, and then doesn't go away when I scroll away, forcing me to close the app. Reddit mobile is filled with all these bugs and inconveniences, but I honestly think the UI isn't as bad as people give it credit for. Then again it is Reddit, so you shouldn't download it if you don't want to magically gain 200 lbs and sprout hair on your neck..Version: 2023.23.0

A buggy, slow mess that breaks often. Soon to be the only way to access Reddit on the go.I've been a Reddit user for about five years, but I've always found it hard to get along well with the first party application. It's incredibly slow, buggy and causes plenty of other problems. For example: scrolling too fast can result in a previously-viewed post appearing from cache as soon as a new post is opened. Additionally, there is no form of download support whatsoever, the save system is terrible (only supports 1000 saved posts), and you need to tap an image to scroll from left to right, instead of a TikTok-esque video-only scroll downwards that becomes less and less relevant to your interests as you scroll. With the murder of apps like Apollo, I have decided to review Reddit's own app. It's clunky, basic and buggy, but it is what it says on the tin. 2/5..Version: 2023.23.0

Bugs galoreI wish we had the third party apps back. This app has many bugs relating to the browsing of posts including the app having to refresh the comments so the first time you go into the comments, it will refresh you may have tried to hide some of the comments or scroll, but then the screen will automatically change and refresh the next bug I have is when I’ve gone through to another sub Reddit from say comment link, or a link and a comment if I go to swipe back after viewing that it will take me back another step instead of just the one step..Version: 2023.48.0

Recent api changesReddit has made a very bad decision by disabling api access. Many subreddits rely on api access for moderation and function. Third party apps are getting killed too. The official app’s performance is very poor and has too many bugs and glitches and not enough functions. You can’t even format text properly and have to go back and edit your comment. Pretty much all bots are gone now, except for the ones that flood subreddits with explicit content. And now the moderators can’t even do anything about it. This is the equivalent of google not only limiting access to their website through google chrome only, but also disabling all extensions and modifications, unless the extension developers pay google $20 million per year. I really hope they revert these changes because if they don’t I think the whole site will just die..Version: 2023.22.0

Terrible App with fixes constantly "being tested" for months on end, but never being rolled outReddits own app is the worst place to browse Reddit on mobile. Issues occur with every update, currently one major issue has been brought up time and time again. The skip to next comment button. The one that sits uselessly in the spot most people who are right handed use to scroll. You can turn it off, but it returns, and when you move it out of the way, it resets itself. It's a useless feature that people have complained for 6 months about and the dev team have promised a fix the whole time. "The next update, the next update" is all we've heard for months. While major bugs such as that, the poor native video player, the focus on rounded damned picture corners and useless features no one likes (seriously Picture in Picture covering comments?), you're better off ditching the app and only using desktop. Especially since Spez is determined to screw over 3rd party apps such as Apollo with outrageous and egregious prices to use their API. In fact, for that reason alone, it might be worth deleting your account entirely if you're on mobile only..Version: 2023.22.0

Reddit has been a good app until nowI love this app, I really do but when the developers made it so when you tap a photo or a video it goes to this different player that when you scroll up it goes to a random video from a subreddit that you haven’t joined. I mean yes I know why that it was changed to do that, so you can have more variety on watching similar content. For awhile I got passed that for videos by taping a photo and swiping to the left to get to the video but now in a recent update they made it so taping on photos does the same thing with videos which at least for me it really annoying. I know just me saying this won’t get anything changed so I’m hoping that other people agree with me or at least make it a setting to change it back to the way it was before you changed it to what you have now for a video player. Adding this after making this review, also why did the developers get rid of the sorting system that they had to change it to new, hot, top, or controversial it’s just bad app design to get rid of these things that people love about Reddit but changing it to this, I’m not really mad just annoyed and kinda disappointed in the developers on getting rid of the sort option and changing the video player.Version: 2022.23.0

Straightforward app but latest update caused issuesReddit is not exactly a 1/5 or 5/5 app and largely just does simple scrolling through endless random chat on the various subreddits - unfortunately the latest update seems to have impacted it a bit where viewing a post image will suddenly jump to the next post (never happened before, now happens always) and increasing instances of the posts freezing. Not sure there’s much else to say. If you use Reddit, then this is easier than the web for simple browsing and if you’re not into it, then it may seem odd. It’s not Facebook, but there’s a lot of random stuff there, weird communities and with any large online group, a lot of bots and very toxic people, but also plenty of funny, friendly and helpful subreddits too (shout out to Daddit).Version: 2022.45.0

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

Poorly optimised and toxic community.The previous video I have seen has been playing in the background while scrolling. The scroll down UI for IOS when returning from the comments gets covered by IOS’s top scroll down UI making it difficult to return back to scrolling after viewing comments. There has been a little too many ads that it is covering roughly 40% of the content I view. The comments are always toxic. To avoid this, don’t look at comments. Lots of bots..Version: 2023.43.0

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

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

Terrible appHow they manage to be this terrible and buggy while solo third party devs do a much better job is baffling. No wonder Reddit feels it’s necessary to make it impossible for 3rd party apps to continue..Version: 2023.22.0

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

Reddit should have just bought ApolloThis app is rubbish. Reddit had an amazing IOS app called Apollo. That went away with API nonsense. Now we’re left with this turkey. Bugs galore like having a previously post stuck in the background so when you swipe out of a post it shows the old post instead of the Reddit. Watch a video, then that audio gets played again when you watch something else. Crashes , sure does. Fails to register taps of course. Slow & unresponsive would you have it any other way ? Remember redditor you’re not the customer you’re the revenue source, you don’t need a great IOS app hell you don’t even get a mediocre one. Spez is a bundle of sticks..Version: 2024.10.0

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

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

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

Reddit hates womenReddit banned peaceful conversations of women discussing violence against them while keeping literal RAPE SUBREDDITS open.Version: 2020.24.0

Use ApolloYou killed alienblue, are suffocating 3PA, and destroying everything that makes this website unique. Your greed and hubris have blinded you to the fact that your users are your product. Without them all you have is a disgusting UI and companies role playing as users to astroturf. Your entire business model is built on unashamedly stealing content from other websites and yet you have the audacity to lambast 3PA for daring to profit for creating apps that provide critical features you’ve been too inept to deliver for years. The hypocrisy of it all would be funny if it weren’t so obvious you’re too stupid to recognise it, glaring as it may be. To spit in the face of the moderators that toil endless hours for free to make communities thrive by calling them landed gentry shows how far you are removed from any reason. Without Apollo reddit is dead to me. I would rather lose the site altogether then ever use this pathetic excuse for an app. I’ll only return to watch wallstreetbets put your IPO in the hellfire where it belongs. - 10y account.Version: 2023.23.1

App needs an updateBeen using the app for some time, however there’s a feature I can’t turn off and that’s the HIDE feature and it’s annoying While reading posts and you touch the screen to scroll up or down the post your reading will disappear, hidden as you paused for a second so you then have to find the post you’ve accidentally hidden to unhide it again, on large threads this can happen multiple times just because you touched the screen, the devs should put in an option to turn this off or at minimum bring a pop up asking if you want to hide that persons post I’ve reverted to using the web based browser at the moment as it’s an issue that has lots of threads about this issue.Version: 2023.32.0

Here, but not by choiceReddit Inc. should be ashamed of the way they’ve treated third-party developers. This app is a poor substitute. I don’t mind the presence of ads (I was fine with them in third-party apps as well, but I guess you weren’t), but the way they’re integrated here is bad. A banner ad would be far more tasteful and less confusing that the native nonsense that goes on right now. The compact view is less compact that narwhal, meaning I see less posts at a time. There’s only two things I can say the official app does right - it lets me set favourites, and it supports swiping for back navigation. These are not high bars to cross! I will never understand why your company, and Twitter, despise third-party developers so much. Their impressive work should *inspire* you to do better, not feel threatened that your non-existent monopoly should be enforced no matter what. This is petty, and I will never view this app with the same gratitude and appreciation I showed to my clients of choice. My mobile usage of Reddit, as a result, will decrease. Do better..Version: 2023.22.0

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

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

If this is the only option I’m not using Reddit anymoreApollo was the best of the best Reddit clients out there, and Reddit has out of nowhere started to charge an obscene amount of money (around $20 million per year!) for developers to create third party applications. Obviously, this is unaffordable, and is a thinly veiled way to kill off 3rd party apps entirely. Out of all the social media apps I’ve used, this is by far the worst one. It’s terribly buggy, spams notifications about posts that aren’t even relevant to any subreddits I’ve joined, and is just generally a chore to use. It feels like an app designed by people who don’t really use Reddit. In addition, the moderation tools are abysmal, and they have put basically zero effort into accessibility for people who are visually impaired (which Apollo was amazing for). I sincerely hope Reddit reverses their decision to essentially ban 3rd party apps. If this is the only option, I’ll just leave Reddit entirely..Version: 2023.21.0

BugsBuggy app always freezing + is owned by an anticompetitive company preventing better reddit apps..Version: 2023.24.0

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

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

Used to be greatReddit used to be a place where you could go and speak to others about all kind of different topics, but things have changed in the last 5 yrs. It’s true that the mods have way too much power, with no accountability. I got banned from a large subreddit purely because I was part of another subreddit that I didn’t even participate in. I often join subreddits, even those that may oppose my own political view, purely to read a balanced perspective…but when you’re being banned entirely for merely having joined a sub that a mod doesn’t like, it’s beyond incompetent. There needs to be a larger overseeing of all moderators that keep everyone in check. It’s disappointing to see that some mods put themselves on such a pedestal, with no checks and balances. Secondly, the amount being charged for some avatars is insane. It was bad enough when coins to award posts were all we had to pay for, but some of the prices for a mere drawing of an avatar are just beyond…Is ad revenue that low? It can’t be, literally every 4-5th post is an ad. Reddit has gone from a place for fun integration and healthy debate, to a money hungry, power hungry mess..Version: 2023.48.0

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

Terrible appThis app is clunky, hard to use and stuffed with ads. It also tracks far to much information than is necessary. The company has also created a walled garden so that other superior apps can’t be built at all via extreme changes to their API and pricing. It’s sad to see another example of wealth extraction ruin a widely loved platform. RIP.Version: 2023.22.0

Oh god what have I done?This app might seem fine on the outside but please god don’t be fooled. It starts with the funny cats and dog videos, then to the funny jokes and videos, then to some harmless memes, and then the next thing you know, you’ve been jerking your manly third leg at some sounding (don’t look that up) or some weird human-animal anime hybrid and you haven’t touched grass in two years! Don’t be foolish. Just stick to the pewdiepie and jacksepticeye videos related to Reddit and continue browsing tic tok! This is not a joke, it’s a warning. Don’t be like me. Don’t be like us. It’s too late for us, it’s not for you. Also don’t go to 4 chan that’s MUCH worse..Version: 2022.34.0

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

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

The UI “updates” are terrible and not user-friendly!HEADS UP! THE PREVIEW IS NOTHING LIKE WHAT THE APP LOOKS LIKE NOW! Continuously, Reddit App developers change the UI not to fix bugs but to make a worse experience for users. Reddit used to have a UI design that set it apart and was functional. Now the app is designed to emulate other social media apps and it does not fit with existing design choices. The new video player is somehow worse than the video player that existed previously (and was never fixed, despite constant bug reports). Sorting options have been removed from the top of the tabs and placed within the profile menu (and only lets you sort for home now). That means instead of one click to sort, it’s now three. They’ve decided, in their infinite wisdom, to change how the upvote, comment, and share buttons are displayed. Instead of across the entire bottom of a post, spread out so you know what you’re clicking, it’s all now squished to the bottom left of the post. They choose to overhaul the design of the UI repeatedly, straying further and further away from what made Reddit unique while not fixing any of the existing issues. I could go on and on about the horrible choices they continue to make, and how they don’t listen to the community about what we actually want out of the app, but they clearly don’t listen (duh)..Version: 2022.25.0

Garbage AppMaybe if you’ve never used an app before you would think it is acceptable. The user interface is trash. Cluttered screens and unintuitive navigation. Be ready to see just 2 posts relevant to the subject you are there to see between all of the ads and suggested links. I hope I never come across whatever site/app they took inspiration from..Version: 2023.22.0

This app is straying further from god…Honestly. If I could give this a 0 star review I would. This app wont be better than thier 3rd party counter parts for a couple of reason. 1. Got to do multiple steps just to save photos. Don’t know what the issue is with long pressing and saving a photo but here I gotta go thru 2 menu options just to download a image I wanna save…. Regardless if its a image to save for a build in a game or a image for a wallpaper… 2 steps too many. 2. CANT SAVE VIDEOS. The only reddit app used to let you save video to a device. Then it was changed…. Which is why I used Apollo (will always be the best reddit app) in the first place. Anytime I wanna save a video I could only save it in app and or crosspost it. I got friends that don’t use reddit (I can see why now) so I used to save videos I thought was helpful or funny so they didn’t have to go to their site or download the app to see it. If you wanna gatekeep people from using your api at least find out what they were doing over your garage app. That way it was more justified for removing the api( better word, extorting) usage and making this app better. Ill see how this app changed but its been months now and its only gotten worse so I’ll probably wont change review..Version: 2023.39.0

Home feed doesnt work.Home feed doesnt load posts in any meaningful way. Posts from days ago are next to posts from minutes ago. Clicking one post opens a link from another. Not sure how the rating is so high lol.Version: 2023.24.0

Always forcing random content on youApp used to be good but now it’s gone the way of most other social media and is always trying to force content on you that you didn’t ask for. they also seem to have removed the ability to filter your feed to new posts and now you have to go to the subreddit to do that. Hate the direction it’s heading, it makes the app frustrating to use and ruins the reddit experience..Version: 2022.25.0

Out of touch, disrespectful and dangerousSo you should download this app if you want your thoughts and feelings abused by an American company for their own profit and potentially, their own political ends. During the week the Queen was lying in state during a period of National morning and throughout her funeral this app bombarded me with inflammatory push notifications from /r/AbolishTheMonarchy and hateful posts designed to provoke me into interacting. I really feel Reddit have let themselves down for a country in mourning it’s a low blow. At best this is an ignorant Bay-area company creating algorithms it can’t control and not giving a hoot about cultural sensitivities outside of Silicon Valley. At the worse, US interference in not just British politics but as wild as it sounds… potentially inciting treason for their own ends. Either way it should be held accountable and there should be laws and safeguards in place to make sure apps can’t manipulate its users like this. OK so they haven’t created the content themselves and but they have highlighted it and in-effect broadcast it to UK citizens so should be held accountable regardless of if it is powered by an algorithm. Anything less is recklessness and I will seriously consider raising this with my MP. It has irked me so much I would encourage you to discuss with your MP too..Version: 2022.34.0

Getting worse every dayThe video player loses the sound if you replay the video. Sometimes you can’t exit a video to go back to Home. Is it just me or has the moveable button to jump to next comment now disappeared too? Sick of seeing so many promoted ads over and over again. Do better!.Version: 2023.36.0

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

Poor wanna be appPoor interface, wrought with spam and advertising. Cannot even stop the only fans porn related user requests. Will be soon deleting Reddit once Apollo goes dark..Version: 2023.24.0

Subreddit Suggestion Features Shows NSFW ContentUnlike the web version, this app shows suggested subreddits. There’s no way to turn the suggestions off. Sometimes the subreddits aren’t NSFW, but the app will suggest a post that is NSFW that missed moderation, or just a really weird or vulgar post from a popular community. There need to be a way to turn this off. I recommend Apollo for Reddit instead..Version: 2022.11.0

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

Word’s Can’t Explain…Or Can They?First of all if anyone thinks that you will be treated fairly, that you will have a voice, or a place where you can have a different mindset from everyone else, where you don’t feel like the website is controlled by the Gestapo, or Stalin’s NKVD, or feel pressured to “go with the flow” to be treated as “sheep”. Well then this app isn’t for you. Because it certainly wasn’t for me. It doesn’t matter how polite you are, how cordial or reasonable you are you have to build up “Karma” and a reputation to even post a comment. I had a comment stating “Mario Cart Be Like:” and it got taken down because it quote: “Violated rules and guidelines” but yet everyone on that same page is using curse words and other vulgar types of language. I put in an inquiry to see if I could get the situation resolved and I was a bit frustrated but at the same time I wanted to make sure I was being respectful. And I was essentially told to give a less “triggered inquiry” So me being me I chose to be the bigger man and apologize even though I had nothing to apologize for. But I stated to them many times that I come in peace and my objective is humor but not the type that makes targets or victims of anyone. And they told me to give a less “triggered response”. Which tells me the wheel is spinning inside their head but the hamster is dead. If you can’t stand ignorance avoid this..Version: 2023.11.0

Doesn’t comply with Apple TOS for screen readingNot that great of an app compared to the third party ones that are about to get nuked thanks to spez being greedy..Version: 2023.24.0

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

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

Reddit No MoreI am a long time Reddit user. It used to be great. But soon I will leave Reddit because of recent change in Reddit policy. I cannot support the “If you can’t win, just kill your competition.” approach..Version: 2023.24.0

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

Censorship is unrealSo I wanted to make a post first to the admins but since I can’t this will have to suffice. I challenged a lot of the narratives that were coming out regarding vaccine efficacy and waning immunity back in July from preprints (that are now published). Instead of accepting the debate, I was permanently banned from several subreddits. Okay, fine. So I create a new account because your company essentially banned my speech. I posted completely different comments on a totally different topic (and nothing controversial either) that just so happens to be in the same subreddit. What happens? Permabanned. I used a completely different email and everything. Literally it must have been through my device ID. Like you shove content down my throat automatically, and whenever I create an account (forgetting I was banned) that account now gets auto banned just for using the device. Not ONLY was I vindicated by what I was saying through the science, but now I am unable to speak on any other topics just because I posted something some of the mods didn’t personally like several months back. This is the issue with censorship. You silence voices and create an echo chamber, and additionally those voices that are silenced now become enemies of the entire system..Version: 2024.07.1

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

Terrible AppIf I could leave a 0-star rating I would. This app has problems galore that looking through reviews of it from the past 6 months would only list probably half of them. More development time was probably spent in creating those tacky Reddit NFTs than on this app. Previously you could use reliable and helpful third-party apps that had three times the features than this sorry-excuse for a web browser, but now this is all that remains since they charge absolutely ludicrous prices to the developers of the third-party apps who can’t possibly afford to pay it. I barely ever use Reddit anymore: previously I would surf Reddit via Apollo (an actual competently developed app), but I refuse to use this waste of phone storage space in Apollo’s place. As a result, I and many others have stopped browsing Reddit almost entirely. We all have much better things to do on our computers than waste time on Reddit of all things. As per usual of the dim-witted and greedy Reddit leadership, this lapse of sane decision-making will no doubt hasten the sites already imminent death because no one in their right mind would use an app that still has the same major bugs, issues, and missing features that it did when it released years ago..Version: 2023.27.0

Constantly making terrible updates, never to be fixedDevs can’t leave a good thing alone. App is constantly being updated and every time it is, it gets more frustrating to use. Good features are constantly being taken away and not replaced. Meanwhile, frustrating features that don’t make sense are all more common. Click on post title, and it no longer takes you to comments. It opens video player instead. Try to swipe on comment to collapse, and it changes the post entirely. It’s really feels like the people that make this app don’t use it at all. Not to mention they switched to a native video player that doesn’t work a large percentage of the time. What once was a reliable system, has been replaced by a faulty system that is consistently not working. It’d be different if this was experimental, or fixed with time. Instead, these changes are introduced with no concern for the user base, and what feels like no intention of being fixed. The community does not receive it well, and announces their displeasure. Then they are left that way, to never be touched again. Not very happy with the way this app has been managed the last few years. Going to have to switch to an alternative..Version: 2023.15.0

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

The Worst Way to Browse RedditOverflowing with ads and other promoted content, lacking basic customization, inferior to all the main third party apps by a wide margin..Version: 2023.24.0

App sucks, CEO sucks, Apollo is way betterAbsolutely horrible way to handle 3rd party apps, wish management would be better… site is supported by unpaid volunteers. 3rd party apps allowed a better experience for users and moderators, yet selfish Reddit CEO tries to inflate his app by lying about other developers, and killing their apps, just so he can IPO, whole killing the golden egg laying goose. /u/spez can gargle marbles.Version: 2023.23.1

Full of quirks and bugsLots of annoying bugs. On an up-to-date M1 iPad Pro. Can’t use the margins to scroll ONLY in the home feed. Oftentimes and randomly, the back arrow when reading a post from any feed will not work, the back arrow completely disappears, or the back arrow will open some random media full-screen. When on the home feed, leave the app momentarily and go back into it, the home feed is scrolled back to the top instead of where you were. Sometimes won’t play media. Some media automatically unmutes when played, some don’t - seems completely random. Randomly, the Home/Popular/News/Latest drop-down menu and the subscribed subs menu just disappears. Randomly, when trying to scroll down the home feed, the up swipes are interpreted as right swipes. In-app notification badge often does not automatically show up, must go into notifications tab and refresh. And oftentimes when clicking the title of a media post, it opens the media instead of going into the post. And when playing a video full screen the overlay doesn’t go away on its own, you have to tap to make it go away. Most of these behaviors seemed to have started recently, with an update of some sort. Edit: Reddit recently cut off third party apps. Now you can’t unsubscribe from subs and it doesn’t respond to ‘show fewer posts like this’. What a mess. Maybe fix your own app if you’re going to do this. App is still flaky and annoying to use with all these bugs!.Version: 2023.23.1
