"Easiest way to read reddits"

The success of Reddit shows the current state of the Internet. Fast-news, coming not just from newspapers but from everyone, everyone and concerning whatever. A chaotic public wall in which news, memes and curiosities flow to keep you both fun and up-to-date. Whatever you are watching today in the news was in Reddit three days ago.

RedReader is a comfortable and well-crafted reader for Reddit. Users can access anonymously or by logging in (multiple accounts support). Thanks to its intuitive interface, users can access Reddit's front page, all subreddits or even create custom subreddits. In addition, it comes with interesting filters as hot, new, rising, controversial and top. From any of these filters you will have access what's being most discussed or watched on reddit, which is like keeping the track of the virals.

Lots of features will improve your reading experience. First, it allows to swipe posts left and right to perform customizable actions, such as upvote/downvote or save/hide (default). In addition, it automatically sync with the web and it keeps a cache of the reddits in order to let you check them offline. If you have data limits concerns, don't worry, since it works with image precaching which is optional (always, never or WiFi only). Compression makes the difference.

RedReader is set in a Holo-layout although it can be used on Android 2.2+ devices. Actually, if you are running it from a tablet, you will enjoy its two-column mode that allows to load content on one stream will keeping the timeline on the other.

In a few words, an excellent app for reddit-addicted.

The only catch of the app is that it
