Card-based reddit client with tons of features and material design


reddit sync feels more like Pinterest than Reddit - which might be just dandy, depending on your taste. The card-based interface is pleasing to use, and the dev is super active about updates.


reddit sync is the prettiest reddit client I know of for Android. The card based-UI is material design at its finest, and the density is configurable to your reading speed. Previews of the content on the cards make skimming comfortable. Swipe navigation is easy-peasy, allowing for quick jumps to parent comments for context. WYSIWYG editor. Switching between multiple accounts is a snap, and there are a bunch of themes. A "minimize bandwidth" feature means you won't suck up too much data without realizing.


A few complaints about occasional lack of sync to one's subscribed subreddits. I haven't noticed this myself, but I see people mentioning it here and there.

    When you go to your profile, click one of your messages, go to that thread, click view all comments, and refresh/sort, the refresh will take you back to your comment instead of the entire thread. This is pretty irritating when trying to refresh game threads for NBA.

    I prefer Sync over all other reddit apps that I've used. I deduct one star for ease of use. There's still plenty of common reddit tasks that I can't figure out how to do with this app.

    It is one of the best clients of reddit, minor issues here and there, but nothing to worry about
