Officially the best new Reddit App for Android!(Now supports TABLETS including Nexus 7 & 10) See the discussion on r/android:


This version has new permissions to optimize ads(the paid version does *not* have them).

New permissions:

"read phone status and identity" - allows the retrieval of a unique id to better track ad impressions

"approximate location" allows ads to be displayed based on your rough location (i.e city or town)

Why? - This is a one man project (me - DBrady). Some of you may have noticed that updates to Reddit News are not as frequent as they once were. It has become increasingly difficult to find time (around a full time job, family and friends) to implement all the features people want to see and have asked for. The purpose of these new permissions is to try and increase ad revenue to a point where i could work on updating Reddit News for a day or two a week.

I realize there is (understandable) discontent around these kinds of permissions so i'm making the old version available ad free and permission free for users who don't want to upgrade. You can download it from my Dropbox here:

You also have the option to buy the paid version.

    I am going to be honest that nothing can replace Alien Blue for iOS. But this is the best alternative. Although I wish they would change the icon.

    Easy and intuitive. Seems to load content faster than other reddit apps i have tried(in the past) as well.

    The image pre fetching feature is really nice. Images only needs to be loaded once!
