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.

Clean and elegant Does its job well with a ui that stays out of the way. Needs some small polish but i prefer the initial focus on usability. I wish more apps were designed this way. Comment swipe options would be a nice addition. Also, should always use OS's apps for links when external links option is set. Imgur and youtube, for example.

VERY impressed. In a crowded field, this app gets a lot of things right, including the all important font customization. Very nice.

Quite some time since app got updated! ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope you haven't given up on this project. This is my favorite Reddit client and I've tried like each one of them. Hoping for a bit more Material Design and a dark theme (not black). Thanks.
