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.

Best Reddit app by far I've tried every Reddit app on the market and RedReader has the best feature set, even as a beta. Its fast, loaded, and it just plain works. Highly recommended!

Decent app Seems to be a decent app and is highly customizable. Though I don't seem to see an easy way to up vote and down vote comments.

Excellent A superb way to keep up with reddit. It's one of the first apps I install on any new phone. A minimalist UI, excellent themes and no ads covering any of the screen.
