Reporting Bugs
RedReader is beta software, so it is possible that you may encounter bugs.

Details of each crash in the UI thread will be logged to external storage, under the filename "redreader_crash_log_(UUID).txt" - please attach the relevant log when reporting a bug.

Crashes in other parts of the application will cause a prompt to be displayed asking you to email the exception details directly.

Great so far. Now my preferred Reddit app. Feature suggestion: handle subreddit links in sidebar through the app rather than through internal browser.

Real Good I love simple apps without a load of overblown features and rubbish, and this really fits the bill. My only issue is it doesn't handle images as well as RedditSync, so I keep that installed for image based subreddits. Better imgur album sorting, as well as proper support for really high res images and it would be perfect! Oh, and a Material Design update would be amazing!

Great, open source, fast, free! Wish it had a casual subreddit feauture like in flow for reddit, because sometimes i just want to browse particular subreddit without having me to subscribe, with this shortcut it will be amazing
