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.

    Split pane mode for tablets and big phones would be tight

    This is the best looking and most functional Reddit client on the market. This dev version is the best if you want to be on the bleeding edge.

    This app is so good I purchased it twice. Smooth, fast, and constantly updated. This has been the best reddit app on android for years now.
