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.

Definitely the quickest and cleanest Reddit app out there.

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!

Biggest plus: lightweight Finally decided to review. The UI is clean and easy to use. I like the cache functionality to help lower data usage, I did have to turn down the cache limit because of occasional stutter when scrolling though. Tried other "popular" reddit apps and came back to this one. Definitely looking forward to future updates and features, developer does a great job on this ad-free app.

Great app. Feature request This app is the best I have used on android. The only complaint I have is that there is no way to customized default subreddits in anonymous mode. If you could add this feature the app would be perfect.
