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

THE VERDICT

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.

THE PROS

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.

THE CONS

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.

Developer's original description available here
This is the in development build of reddit sync for those who want to live on the bleeding edge. Can be run alongside reddit sync or reddit sync pro.

    Even better than Alien Blue on iPhone and nothing on Android even comes close to this.

    Tried them all. This one is far superior.

    However I really wish you'd allow normal blue coloured links and a more vivid op flair in night mode. My only my two quams.

    I updated to the material design look while still running kitkat, but it didn't stand out that much further than other reader apps. Once I updated my phone to lollipop, this app just blows the others away. Very clean transitions and the card ui is so seamless, I almost want to use the larger cards based on the appearance, even though I'd get less functionality.

    It would be nice if I could subscribe to a subreddit from within the app

    Aside from the YouTube player not being compatible in Lollipop, I'm also getting random crashes and "error loading" every time I open the app

    I've tried all reddit apps and without a doubt this is the best! Still a few bugs like adding a new subreddit and it doesn't appear until you logg out and and sign in again
