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.

Appreciative long time user Lets me go PC to mobile without having to see the posts I've already hidden, works great. Internal browser sometimes cuts the end off of gifs

Alright overall I have a few issues though: 1) you cannot reply to PM's 2) you can't really search anything [though it does cut clutter in a way] 3) the reply method is kind of clunky, but it is also customizable, which is really cool.

Only Lately... This is my everyday reddit browser, I've been using it since it's been available on the Play Store. Only lately it's been crashing when viewing imgur links and returns you to the beginning of your front page, losing your place. Also it's been in beta forever.

Free is nice A perfectly decent free and open Reddit app. Updated regularly, but not too often. I've tried many Reddit apps and this is the one I keep coming back to. Full marks because it's free, no ads, and the dev is totally on point.
