Best way to reddit on the phone

Missing feature. I really like this app, but in my past Reddit readers they had a prominent 'search for subreddit' option. This feature showed a list of the bigger subreddits, and saved subreddits that I had viewed/searched for previously. I would be extremely grateful if this would be added as it is a much used feature by me. Other than this it is a great Reddit reader!

My favorite reddit app I love this app, but I'm having an issue with it lately. It's saying that I can't save pictures anymore cause I'm out of space, but I have about 8 gigs free on my phone, and 7 in my sd card. I don't know how to fix this. Please help.

Almost The simplicity makes it very good but it has quirks unfortunately... I wanted it to be great so I can delete my other readers...

Do recommend Version 1.8.6.3 fixed the occasional scrolling lag I would experience. The app is still lightweight, simple, and the ability to cache is the best feature by far.
